Byredo 1996 Inez & Vinoodh Perfume by Byredo, First released in 2013, 1996 Byredo Inez & Vinoodh was inspired by an iconic image captured by the Dutch fashion photography duo: Kirsten, 1996, an image of a young girl that is at once innocent and precocious. The composition is simply designed, opening with piquant and freshly fragrant juniper berry, which is soon softened by a powdery, woody floral heart of violet and iris. Warmest patchouli and nuances of leather combine with black amber to produce a sensuous finish that is truly unforgettable.
Ben Gorham founded the Byredo design house in 2006 in Stockholm, Sweden. Fascinated with scent and its close connection to memory from a young age, Gorham was especially inspired to pursue fragrance design after visiting his mother’s hometown in India, where he experienced a world rich in emotive aromas of spice and incense. House scents were made in collaboration with artists Ben Gorham, Jerome Epinette and Olivia Giacobetti.
