From the Byredo Website...In the xeric wilderness of the Mojave Desert, trees and vegetation more ancient than many civilizations defy conditions that prey on human vulnerability. The Ghost Flower is a rare species that dares to bloom above this baked, hard ground. Despite its arid surroundings and inability to produce nectar, the Ghost Flower or Mohavea Confertiflora, maintains its perfect, majestic beauty and thrives year after year. In an astonishing feat of ingenuity, the flower uses mimicry to attract the pollinators of a neighboring plant species by developing markings that resemble those of a female bee genus attracted to its subject and duping the male bee into following suite. This moving human-like behavior and captivated tale of survival lies in he foundation that inspired “Mojave Ghost,” an homage to this most bewitching flower.
As befitting to its name this scent is haunting, light and majestic.
A scent thats so sheer that it conjures up an image of a delicate veil caught on a thorny bush of a leafless tree in a land that knows no abundance or life, and as it catches the wind it rises high above the arid ground baked and cracked, it dances delicately with each gush all pristine and white, and offers a rare sight of something so fragile yet majestic amid barren surroundings rendered only in brown hues....
This scent remains fairly linear on my skin without much transformation, as violet and vanillic musk shine through intermittently. I am enveloped in a cloud of fleeting aromas, where the foral notes are luminous almost icy and are played up by subtle ambrette. This blend is seamless and no notes can be isolated or distinguished individually. This scent offers a truly intimate experience and develops quite close to skin, almost as if each accord is warmed and brought out by the heat of your body....Soft woods contribute to really balance out the overall effect of something ghost-like, something present yet whispy, something endearing yet endangered.
Though it fairs poorly in terms of projection, this scent more than makes up for it with its longevity.
This fragrance is genuine, effortless and every fragrance wardrobe needs a Mojave Ghost.
Wear it in an intimate setting, on a dinner date, in bed, even when you want to enjoy some qaulity time by yourself....
