"We're in the business of bottling up emotions. I hope that people read the label and identify with that sentiment in its simplest form, and then find something deeper to relate to: the juxtaposition between the familiar and the unfamiliar."
- Ben Gorham, founder and creative director of Byredo.
Drawing on Byredo’s philosophy of translating fragmented memories and abstract ideas into scents, the new edition Mixed Emotions represents an olfactory sketch of our current, collective state of mind.
Comfortable notes of maté tea and the sharp sweetness of black currant lead to the heart of soothing Ceylon tea and the petite accord of violet leaves. The wood base provides “comfort” with notes of papyrus and birch.
