BAL D'AFRIQUE

7. BYREDO PERFUME BOTTLE
I'm obsessed with Byredo. Every time I visit Liberty I wander past the counter and spritz a new one on to try. I'd really like to try some of the Le Labo fragrances too but those are eye-wateringly expensive! The Byredo packaging is perfectly minimalist and looks awesome on my desk. I like that they're not in fancy faceted bottles like so many of the other perfumes I own. Most of the fragrances are unisex too which is definitely reflected in their design. The packaging is really luxe and the bottle has a magnetic lid which is super satisfying!

I have to admit, the fragrances are pretty unique and not all of them will be your cup of tea. I really liked Gypsy Water at first (their most popular scent) which has a smokiness and a gorgeous lingering pine scent but in the end - I purchased Bal D'Afrique (50ml) It's unisex and I can imagine that this smells really good on a guy too! As we know, perfumes really change when sprayed on the skin and the same fragrance will smell really different on each person. This has notes of bergamot, jasmine, violet and a little musk. I'm not actually that keen on musk but I am so drawn to this scent! It smells incredible and has a really gorgeous warm scent. After a few wears, I seem to get a faint Pina Colada scent (but in a nice way!) which makes me feel really hungry on the morning commute when I've not had any breakfast. I've mentioned this to my sister and she looked at me with concern...but guys, it's so sooo good and my absolute favourite at the moment.

I'd definitely go and check out the counter in Liberty/Selfridges/Harrods if you fancy a fragrance that is just a little bit different. They're a bit on the pricey side but they are fragrances that you won't find every other girl/guy wearing. They also give out free samples, so don't be shy and ask if you can take one away with you to try before you decide to splurge! I'm actually really tempted to buy the roll on oil for my handbag...
