Byredo has released Vanille Antique, a new addition to their Night Veils collection. “Vanille Antique joins Casablanca Lily, Reine de Nuit, Tobacco Mandarin and Sellier as part of a unique series of Extraits de Parfum. Applying the Night Veils signals the beginning of the evening and the embrace of a different, nocturnal life.”
Vanille Antique is packaged in Byredo’s go-to bottle style. A short and stocky cylindrical bottle with a black umbrella cap above it. Through the thick glass is a whiskey-coloured juice, glowing beneath the brand’s title, fragrance name and liquid concentration. At Harrod’s, there is an option to purchase the entire collection in six 50ml bottles.
“Utilizing an ancient, luxurious and refined perfume tradition that works closer to the skin and with the radiance of body heat, a small amount of Extrait de Parfum lasts for many hours and connects more deeply with the wearer.”– Byredo PR Team
The new Byredo scent begins with deep Musk and a dark Plum accord. It then transitions into Light Woods and delicate Cistus, concluding with powdery Amber and deep Vanille in the base.
“Vanilla Antique plays with smoky notes of vanilla creating something unexpected. A warm mix of light woods, cistus and musk creates an intoxicating olfactory experience. As an Extrait de Parfum, vanilla antique offers a very special fragrance experience that lasts for a long time.”
Facebook groups are beginning to compare this new release to Mumbai Noise. This cult-favourite starts with Davana at the top, Coffee and Tonka in the base and Oud, Sandalwood and Labdanum to conclude. Both of which feature key woody notes and popularized, modern features.
Byredo Vanille Antique is currently only available in a 50ml bottle. It is concentrated as an Extrait de Parfum and features an atomizer beneath the cap. Vanille Antique currently retails for $267 USD.
