SpecificationsByredo's bewitching oriental eau de parfum was inspired by a photograph of a young girl entitled ‘Kirsten 1996’ taken by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in that year. Opening with the icy, deep green beauty of juniper berries, it transports the wearer to another plane, and, like the image, combines polar opposites. The soul of this fragrance is a warm, almost viscous black amber, its deep cognac rapture envelops the wearer and time stands still for just a moment until the journey concludes in the softly-sensual leather and patchouli of the orient.
