Inspired by the heady, agitated world of youthful emotions, happy and sad, deeply indebted to music, Lil Fleur is ultimately an interpretation of promise and potential, courage and sincerity. “I find that spirits often try to capture one idea or one emotion; Lil Fleur is about capturing a complex personality that anyone can recognize. As the brother of my sister or the father of my daughter, there is nothing more beautiful and interesting in my life experience than the character of a young spirit, ”says Ben Gorham, creative director and founder of Byredo.
In many ways, Lil Fleur is an exploration of a traditional floral scent, albeit an overwhelmingly modern concept. In his heart is a dancing damask rose, sparkling, fresh and enveloping with its sweetness and light. A symbol of love and beauty, secrecy and unity, this is the dominant tone in the witchcraft of the female world. Top notes of Cassis and Mandarin add a fresh sparkle, almost like a needle placed on a vinyl record. While Saffron soothes with its warm tones, it combines with a more masculine leather accord that also underpins the fragrance. White wood, Ambergris and Vanilla add sophistication, restraint and comfort to the base of the fragrance.
