Eau de Cologne. 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 Merveilleuses. Marvelous means wonderful, exquisite, and astonishing. 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. We celebrate all of this. Because when things are just a bit off kilter, a little twisted or turned in shape, they become that much more interesting. Such qualities are prima facie for a thing to be called marvelous. For a man to be called Mr. Marvelous. Our hats off to the one and only Christiaan.
