"I think there is something about night-time, it’s a different world of possibilities; a different version of who you are, a nocturnal sense of duality." - Ben Gorham, Creative Director & Founder, Byredo. The first oud gourmand fragrance in our Night Veils collection, Rouge Chaotique takes personal inspiration from Ben Gorham’s belief that accepting the chaos within any creative process can result in singular forms of expression.
At the top, a prelude of precious saffron undercuts the fresh juiciness of blackcurrant and bergamot with a tangent of spiced leather. Velvety smooth gourmand notes form the heart, as syrupy sensations of plum and the toasted sweetness of praline transform into an irresistible guilty pleasure. Drawn from one of the world’s most opulent raw materials, the animalic sensuality of oud brings the spectacular finale, blended with patchouli and balanced with the crisp tension of papyrus.
Distilled into a pure essence, a small amount of Rouge Chaotique works closer to the skin and radiates through the heat of the body, lingering for many hours.
