Night Veils - Vanille Antique - Extrait de Parfum


Night Veils - Vanille Antique - Extrait de Parfum


In a new departure, Byredo presents its first titular fragrance centred around perfumery’s rarest raw ingredient. Derived from the French for “Antique Vanilla”, Ben Gorham envisioned a smoky vanilla bean charged with history and character. With his usual drive and determination to steer away from the milieu’s convention, the result is transformative with aromas crystallising into something unexpected, less syrupy and more nuanced.

The only orchid that bears fruit, harvested though a lengthy and delicate process, Vanille Antique references the complexities of its source - a unique ingredient imbued with hundreds of aromatic possibilities. Redolent of far-flung climes, the expected sweetness of vanilla is cut through by textures of earthiness and darkness, a warm mix of cashmere wood, ciste and musk coalesce to form an intoxicating ambrosia. 

Distilled from a fleeting moment of inflorescence, this is a heady bouquet for the subversive adventurer. Hazily intriguing, descend into the depths of night and chance risqué encounters, all in pursuit of this seductive trail of scent.  

Top: Black Plum, Freesia 

Heart: Amber, Cashmere Woods 

Base: Vanilla Beans, Cistus Oil
