Mojave Ghost Eau de Toilette
Mojave Ghost is the perfect perfume for men and women who want a scent that lasts all day long. It is a unisex fragrance that is very subtle and does not stand out as much as other strong, masculine fragrances. It is also a great option for those who are looking for a clean, fresh scent that can be worn in a professional environment.
The scent is inspired by the Mojave desert and its Ghost Flower, a rare species that dares to bloom above the baked ground of this xeric wilderness. Top notes of sapodilla and ambrette open the scent while soft, delicate accords of Violet, Magnolia, and Sandalwood unfold. Base notes of chantilly musk, crisp amber, and cedarwood finish the fragrance.
The Mojave Ghost Eau de Parfum is a unisex fragrance that can be worn by anyone who enjoys the outdoors. It is a light scent that is not overpowering, making it ideal for casual wear or workwear. The packaging and presentation are careful not to indicate gender preference, with a clear bottle and simple coloring that includes the name of the perfume front and center.
Bal d’Afrique Eau de Toilette
A warm, romantic vetiver inspired by Paris in the late ’20s and its infatuation with African culture, art, music and dance. A mix of Parisian avant-gardism and African culture shaped a unique and vibrant expression, which is illustrated by bal d’Afrique’s neroli, African marigold and Moroccan cedarwood.
Stockholm-based niche line BYREDO was founded in 2006 with the intention to translate memories and emotions into products and experiences. The brand specializes in perfumed oils, candles and other fragrant products that will transform your home or office into a luxurious retreat.
Designed by Jerome Epinette, this unisex fragrance opens with black currant, amalfi lemon, Tagetes, bergamot and African orange flower to create a stimulating start. It then reveals a heady floral mix of violet, cyclamen and jasmine petals for a rich and decadent heart. Its base notes of musk, black amber and vetiver make it an intense scent for women and men. This uplifting scent is available in an Eau de Parfum spray and body wash.
Mojave Ghost Perfume Oil
The most arid expanses of the desert inspired this woody composition with a light and graceful character. It captures the beauty of a rare ghost flower a miracle of life in a barren landscape with fragile-looking, almost translucent petals. Top notes of sapodilla and ambrette (musk mallow) mingle with the soft, powdery heart of magnolia, violet and sandalwood against a backdrop of lily-of-the-valley musk and Jamaican nesberry for a slowly unfurling spirit of contrasts.
It’s best to avoid over-spraying Mojave Ghost as the scent can be overpowered by too many sprays. A few sprays in the dips of your collarbone should be enough to allow the fragrance to open properly.
This perfume oil comes in a roll-on bottle which makes it easy to apply on the go. It’s gentle, alcohol-free and provides a long-lasting scent. It’s also safe for sensitive skin.
Mojave Ghost Body Care
Inspired by the exotic ghost flower that blooms in the arid Mojave Desert, this body lotion is an elegant warm floral fragrance with woody notes. Combined with hydrating and skin softening ingredients, it leaves your signature scent on the skin all day.
In this xeric wilderness the Ghost Flower (Mohavea Confertiflora) is a wonder of nature, unfolding in a desert landscape with fragile-looking petals that are a beautiful imitation of nearby flowers. In an incredible act of mimicry the plant attracts rare insect pollinators to sustain itself. It is this astounding exploit, a tale of survival, that inspires Byredo’s tribute to the mysterious flower.
The perfume comes in a simple white box with the name of the fragrance and the brand logo on it. It can be opened by removing two stylish stickers on the front and back of the box. As with other Byredo fragrances, the packaging is elegant and minimalistic. For the best performance of this perfume, apply it lightly – a couple of sprays behind your ears and at the dips of your collar bones.
