So I’ve made my peace with the fact that I’m no expert in describing perfumes, but I’m going to give it another go today as I introduce a lovely woody number I added to my collection recently.
Byredo Mojave Ghost is my scent of the moment, finally a scent I own that everyone seems to notice – honestly, I’ve never had the whole “who smells good?” question often in my life, but my loved ones are all over this every time I wear it. Trust it to be the expensive one eh.
Anyone with a Pinterest account will recognise the packaging of this pretty perfume, the Byredo scents are practically a staple in any blogger’s home – but I can assure you it’s not just for the bottle! Okay, it’s like 45% bottle, maybe…
I first tried this dreamboat at Liberty a while back, and I was intoxicated by the sultry scent. Seriously, I was walking around with my nose to my wrist the whole day.
Luckily I managed to remember the name, and made it my mission to make it mine the next time I was in store.
As fate would have it, Space NK made a small selection available at the Glasgow store so I went right in and snapped it up. You couldn’t make this up! I was meant to drop £££ on a perfume, it was written in the stars. That’s what I told Jordan anyway.
Top notes: ambrette & Jamaican nesberry
Middle notes: violet, sandalwood & magnolia
Base notes: chantilly musk, crisp amber & cedarwood
If I had to honestly describe this scent, I would say “a grown up version of Marc Jacob’s Daisy” – it has that same fresh, floral but a little woody whiff that I just love! It’s musky enough to be elegant, but it still has dreamy flower notes, from the violet and magnolia, in there to make it great for everyday wear.
I have to say too, it’s incredibly long-lasting – changing as the day wears on so you keep on getting hints of it as it settles on skin and clothes. I literally adore it!
It’s a flawless fragrance for everyday wear, and it’s delicious worn day or night. It’s my new staple, and I recommend giving it a sniff next time you’re near a counter.
I have the 100ml size, but it also comes in a smaller 50ml bottle.
Have you tried anything from Byredo?
