A collaboration fragrance between Ben Gorham (Nose behind Byredo) and his closest friends.Actually Ben Gorham created this fragrance for his friends, the renowned Fashion and Art Photographers Inez and Vinoodh, ?1996' as a private edition for Christmas. But - fortunately for us customers - the crowd found out about it and was instantly buzzing it in social media. From now Ben was overwhelmed by desperate requests and even petitions to release the fragrance 1996 to the public.
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.
"The scent is an olfactory snapshot not only of the image but of our emotional response to it"
- Ben Gorham
