Hitting The Right Notes – BYREDO Gypsy Water

One thing you simply should not miss is the Love Yourself beauty event at Barneys. This year, the ever-famous BYREDO Gypsy Water Eau de Parfum made my wish list. Since I no longer live a cab ride away, I called in my order and a gorgeous box from Barneys arrived on my suburban porch this week. Featured by every Beauty Editor since its 2008 launch, this unique scent joins my Fall fragrance wardrobe. The luxe-filled Gift With Purchase bag feels very First Class International this year and features deluxe treats from some of the top prestige brands carried by Barneys. Don’t mind if I do. #GiftedWithPoise

Depending on the season, you can’t help but favor certain scents over others. Gypsy Water makes for a very rare fragrance that wears well on me only during colder months. This BYREDO creation is not casual but it can be when you need it to be. It smells well-traveled. Of exotic air but with a depth of a woodsy note. Gypsy Water is definitely a grown up scent. Elegant and comfortable is how I feel when I wear it. #GypsyLife

Bursting with Bergamot and Lemon, the opening notes are very crisp while Pepper and Juniper Berries enhance the citrus and provide deeper aromatics. Breathe in… Within seconds Incense and Pine Needles take over and linger along with orris root, which happens to be an ingredient one finds in many a gin. Now, breathe out… Gypsy Water sets into a soft base of Amber, Vanilla and Sandalwood, a combination I would normally avoid. The drydown is sophisticated but soft and most definitely noticeable. #TakeNote

This particular BYREDO masterpiece is completely free of floral notes and a gender bending perfection. Stark, modern and completely unisex in its design the round bottle with a magnetic dome top is chic, aesthetically pleasing and an impressive enhancement to every bathroom counter. Gypsy Water has great longevity with a subtle intensity. Never aggressive, it’s a fragrance that stays with you throughout the day and remains subtle yet intriguing to everyone around. #TestTheGypsyWaters

If you’re lucky to be by a Barneys New York, experience the BYREDO range in person. My two other favorites from this Swedish athlete turn master perfumer are Pulp and Mister Marvelous. This fragrance house launches very splurge worthy scents of proud craftsmanship and quality so indulge when you can. Gypsy Water Eau de Parfum comes in 50ml ($145) and 100ml ($220). There is a Cologne version in a 250ml size ($280), and more body care and home fragrance items. Available at Barneys.com and NeimanMarcus.com. #YourMoneysWorth
