Byredo has launched Mister Marvelous, a new fragrance inspired by hair stylist Christiaan Houtenbos:
With the launch of Mister Marvelous, Byredo's founder, Ben Gorham, has chosen to highlight a male figure who currently embodies his idea of this fragrance. The first ever Mister Marvelous features world renowned hair stylist Christiaan Houtenbos.
Marvelous is a grand word, is it not? As it rolls off the tongue, it feels quite like it means. And it has history; France’s post- revolutionary dandies called their equally exquisite ladies Les Marveileuses [sic]. Marvelous means wonderful, exquisite, and as- tonishing. With a bit of strangeness as well – as indicated by the old Latin mirabilis. A marvelous thing must be strange in that it must be like nothing else.
The notes feature mandarin leaves, neroli, green lavender, bamboo, black amber and cedarwood.
Byredo Mister Marvelous is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
