Flowerhead by Byredo

byredo_flowerheadWHAT I SMELL:  Flowerhead opens with a sweet and spicy zesty lemon which is soon followed by this wonderful Lingonberry, which is pure jelly happiness as its not thick and jam like.  Instead, it’s oh so uplifting, lilting and buoyant.  After a few more minutes, the Lingonberry dissipates and the fragrance begins to become more full-bodied and radiant.  The florals are rich and enrapturing without being too heavy and heady.  After around the 10 minute mark the jasmine takes center stage with a peppered edge.  Thankfully, the tuberose plays 2nd fiddle which keeps the whole structure lighter, although there is a spice that seems to fleck around the edges along with the greenish base.  And just when I thought the fragrance had settled in, after around 30 minutes Flowerhead starts throwing out big flowered balls as it begins to really project as if the tuberose is yelling that it wants to be seen!  A couple of spritzes and no one will miss the fact that you’re wearing this beauty. As far as I’m concerned, Flowerhead can wrap itself around my whole body!!
