INDEPENDENT fragrance label Byredo has released a number of limited edition products in the run up to Christmas, all of which exude the glamour and uniqueness that its perfumes are celebrated for. Other than offering a wide range of evocative fragrances, Byredo has also established a reputation for creating luxurious bodycare products, as well as collectable candles that add instant style to interiors.
Of the newest launches, the Rose Hand Care Gift Set is a fantastic kit boasting large sizes of hand soap and hand cream, which are elegantly presented in a pretty floral gift bag. The advantage of the bigger bottles is that they last for ages and offer superb value. The pair also adds a heavy dose of ambiance in the bathroom and is perfect gift material. Byredo’s rose fragrance is unrivalled and one of the label’s most popular scents. It is sweet but serious, and leaves a delicate layer of scent on the skin without overpowering.
If traditional soaps are more appealing, Byredo’s new range of three solid white soaps will leave you reeling. The weight of a 150g bar in your hand is utterly pleasing and offers a superlative clean. The soaps come in three of the label’s most iconic hand scents – Suede, Vetyver and Rose – and are simply splendid, dressed in minimalist packaging.
For candle lovers, the Mini Candle Gift Sets are launching this month. Two sets are being presented, both of which contain a light, medium and strong-scented candle – perfect for different rooms in the house or even the office. La Sélection Violette is for those seeking earthy, powdery notes. With La Sélection Bois expect to find a warmer palette of sandalwood and cedarwood. The sets are also a fantastic way to trial a variety of scents if you’re new to the home fragrance game, or simply wishing to change your usual home aroma.
For something particularly innovative and indulgent, how about a hair perfume? Byredo has you covered with its Eleventh Hour set, also released this month, which contains a Hair Perfume and Hand Cream that will leave you smelling of wild fig and rum, with undertones of tonka bean. It’s a delicious and unusual concoction that will certainly turn heads. You can always rely on Byredo for something exceptional.
