“…A lazy isle to which nature has given singular trees, savory fruits, men with bodies vigorous and slender, and women in whose eyes shines a startling candor.”
The poet Charles Baudelaire, famously a lover of perfume and the exoticism of faraway lands, was by turns cerebral, sensual, perverse, and sentimental. Byredo’s homage to the French dandy reflects this mercurial nature with its multiple olfactory dimensions.
A gentle sweetness lies at the heart of Baudelaire, with hyacinth warmed by amber and a touch of fruit. This sentimental center gives way to the aromatics of caraway, patchouli, and juniper berries, with their green whiff of the brisk outdoors. Baudelaire’s base truly provides a counterpoint to its initial warmth, the way that his poetry often launches into philosophy: sensuality gives way to aridity, with a dry, incense-y base of leather, patchouli and papyrus.
Earthy yet worldly, warm yet sophisticated, Baudelaire is as elegant as a dandy’s walking stick.

A good fragrance at a good price. Better in the dry down.
Mostly all byredo scents are excellent
Smells like a well-groomed gentleman who has just come in from the outdoors and is sitting in his study in a leather chair, next to a large fireplace. Too well-behaved for what I'm looking for, but it's a lovely fragrance. Tested L'Eau d'Italie Paestum Rose on the other arm and I think they'd layer well together.
