Niche line Byredo has launched Vanille Antique, a new addition to the Night Veils collection.
Mirroring the morning ceremony of applying scent, Night Veils are designed for the ritual of the night. Like flowers that release their headiest scent at twilight, these penetrating concentrates of perfume are made from noble raw materials chosen with meticulous care.
Vanille Antique is the first titular Byredo fragrance centered around perfumery’s rarest raw ingredient. Here, the smoky scent of vanilla bean becomes charged with history and character; transforming into something unexpected, less syrupy, and more nuanced. The expected sweetness of vanilla is cut through by textures of earthiness and darkness, a warming mix of cashmere wood, ciste, and musk form intoxicating ambrosia.
Distilled into a pure essence utilizing time-honored techniques, a small amount works closer to the skin and radiates through the heat of the body, lingering for many hours.
Additional notes include plum.
Byredo Vanille Antique is available now for pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman, $330 for 50 ml Extrait de Parfum.
