Byredo is back with another fragrance “Vanille Antique,” the latest release in the “Night Veils: Le Rituel de la Nuit” quintet. The new scent joins “Casablanca Lily,” “Reine de Nuit,” “Sellier” and “Tobacco Mandarinas” as part of the brand’s singular series of Extraits de Parfum. Mirroring the morning ceremony of applying scent, Night Veils are designed for the ritual of the night. Like flowers that release their headiest scent at twilight, these penetrating concentrates of perfume are made from noble raw materials chosen with meticulous care.

Vanille Antique is the first titular Byredo fragrance centered around perfumery’s rarest raw ingredient. Here, the smoky scent of vanilla bean becomes charged with history and character; transforming into something unexpected, less syrupy and more nuanced. The expected sweetness of vanilla is cut through by textures of earthiness and darkness, a warming mix of cashmere wood, ciste and musk form an intoxicating ambrosia.
