[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I am not very familiar with BYREDO perfumes, so I really have nothing to compare-I don’t think it is a bad thing. I have encountered Blanche (2015) in the form of fog before, but it is very different from what I remember, and I may have never smelled it before. My impression of Blanche EDT is a very fancy washing powder…it makes sense because it should smell like! This version is a collector’s edition, it is as undressed as possible, without labels and a completely transparent bottle. This nudity marks the connection of perfume to skin and texture.
Any perfume designed to connect the sense of smell to the skin and body will throw different things at different people. On the one hand, the faint sandalwood and musk elevate it to the original sensual level-laundry, bed sheets, and a body full of both, but on the other hand, the rose point reminds me of clean baby hair! It is aimed at the mother’s instinctive response to cleaning the newborn. It’s so strange, I didn’t expect it at all.
Wait a moment, what you escape from the laundry pile is more roses, soft and powdery, but not more floral like the first moment, with the soft touch of peony, orange blossom and violet. I can see from my review of the fog in 2015, I found that the smell was very clean at the time, but I didn’t seem to notice the nuances of the skin. Either I changed, or it changed, but again both may be true. I feel a bit captured by Blanche, but not in any passionate way, maybe more like a comfortable smell-I’m really decadent, spray it on my sheets because it has a sense of laziness That makes me think that is the right place for it. Or maybe a spray before going to bed-why not? The collector’s edition is priced at 188 pounds (swallow quietly) here. Non-affiliated is here.
His eye-catching new collector’s edition marks the first time in Byredo’s history, as Blanche has been redesigned with a white cap and an unlabeled, completely transparent bottle; the classic is stripped of its most basic form.
As a long-term symbol in the Byredo catalog, Blanche explores texture and skin smell; the corpse slid down on new sheets; the laundry basket is full; a punch of detergent. The smell of aldehyde softens into a delicate rose; through sandalwood and musk, humanized charm and intimacy.
