Byredo La Tulipe was launched in 2010, created by Jerome Epinettee and Ben Gorham. Constructed as the idea of the tulip, it has a dewy morning mist quality, with notes of rhubarb, cyclamen, freesia, tulip, green notes, wood and vetiver. This fragrance whispers spring. It's not heavy in the least, but it surrounds you with light.
Founded in 2006 in Sweden Byredo perfume's creator Ben Gorham (former basketball player) wanted to create perfumes of quality while keeping their production in Sweden. Gorham had been fascinated with fragrance much of his life. When he meet Pierre Wulff, a perfumer, Byredo came into being. Currently Gorham works with Olivia Giacobetti and Jerome Epinette to create his line of perfumes
Byredo La Tulipe reviews
From Basenotes: "For a fleeting moment in the opening, the rhubarb note is very prominent, but then it calms down & combines with the freesia note to form a greenish, cool & fresh floral accord. Although it's not exactly natural-smelling, this accord actually produces a rather clever & beautiful abstract idea of a bunch of spring flowers. The fragrance is linear, but very diffusive, & lasts a good seven hours before fading. This is not a challenging fragrance, but is most enjoyable as a thing of simple beauty, & sometimes that's all one needs to put a smile on one's face."
From Makeup Alley - "This is one of the lightest, prettiest, wearable NON SWEET florals I've ever encountered. Rather linear, but clean, neat, and acts like a soloflore despite the other notes. I get only a creamy, tulip flavor from this."
From Huffpost: "La Tulipe reminded me of the month of May: Lilacs, sun-warmed cotton and new leaves."
