It’s not since I first discovered Viktor & Rolf’s ‘Flowerbomb’ as a girl barely out of university, that I’ve felt quite so smitten with a fragrance, but Mojave Ghost from Byredo has captivated my senses in a way that few other perfumes have. With a lingering floral sweetness and musky undertones, the scent is so full-bodied and rich, and the only perfume that’s currently made it into daily rotation – I am an all or nothing kind of girl, after all.
It’s only taken the one scent (plus a mini vial of ‘Gypsy Water’) to get me hooked on Byredo’s beautiful – and luxurious – perfumes, and I get the feeling it’s going to be one heck of a pricey obsession. Next on my list? The sumptuous smelling Bal D’Afrique; the perfect winter accessory (along with a good pair of boots, and a thick lambswool scarf!).
