Niche line Byredo has launched Slow Dance, a new unisex fragrance.
The slow dance: A rites-of-passage moment for both girls and boys before they metamorphose into women and men. A feeling of exhilaration tempered by awkwardness, a heady collision of innocence and experience, not knowing and knowing, felt across countries, cultures and time. Slow Dance mixes ideas of the feminine and masculine, bitter and sweet, in a rich, intoxicating distillation redolent of warm skin and breathless exchange. Here (high school) clichés mingle and become something more; at once familiar and iconoclastic, the ancient perfumer’s arsenal is made modern and anew.
The notes include opopanax, geranium, labdanum, violet, patchouli and vanilla.
Byredo Slow Dance is available in 50 or 100 ml Eau de Parfum, or in hand cream and hair perfume.
