Details

‘1996’ was inspired by a photograph of a young girl entitled ‘Kirsten 1996’ taken by Inez van Lamsweerde and Yinoodh Matadin in that year. The fragrance is a true collaboration in every sense as creative director Ben Gorham sought to interpret not only the image itself but the vision and personality of its creators.
“we said, ‘these are the notes that we’ve always been attracted to that come from the different countries we have memories of, this is our house full of warm wood and high end design, this picture represents the duality that underlies our work and our life together, the scent is very much ben’s impeccable and sensitive interpretation of that“ - Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin

Opening with the icy, deep green beauty of juniper berries ‘1996’ indeed transports the wearer to another plane and, like the image, combines polar opposites, as the northern hemisphere gives way to creamy orris and soft, slightly flirtatious violets. The soul of this fragrance is a warm, almost viscous black amber, it’s deep cognac rapture envelops the wearer and time stands still for just a moment until the journey concludes in the softly-sensual leather and patchouli of the orient.
Each box is decorated with a 'Kirsten 1996' photograph.

About the brand

Byredo Perfumes is a fragrance company based in Stockholm, Sweden and was founded by Ben Gorham in 2006. The first collection consisted of Green, Chembur, Pulp, Rose Noir, and Gypsy Water and was presented in Paris. In 2008 it was time for New York and its one and only Barneys where Byredo became the second-best-selling fragrance collection. At the time Ben Gorman became a father and in appreciation he created a new fragrance for his girlfriend Natasha which he also named after her. What distinguishes Byredo according to us is Ben’s unique gift of transforming his emotions into fragrances which in turn creates the most lavishing fragrances ever. Amongst other things Byredo has created a scented candle for Acne Jeans called Lilla Nygatan No 23 and helped provide Hotel Skeppsholmen in Stockholm with their bathroom amenities.
