A spicy oriental built around the warmth of vanilla flower and Indian sandalwood. It is based on the biblical tale of Salome's dance of the Seven Veils, a story of many layers. Tainted and bejeweled, Salome turns to the art of shameless seduction. Barefooted, sanguine and black eyed, she demands a man's head on a plate in exchange for one single dance.
Top: Carrot, pimento berries
Heart: Tahitian vanilla flower, laurier rose, glycine, tiger orchid
Base: Sandalwood, vanilla bean

About Byredo Fragrances:
Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Byredo was founded by painter-turned-creative-director Ben Gorham in 2006. Partnering with perfumers Olivia Giacobetti and Jerome Epinette, Gorham's scents are inspired by distinct places (such as Palermo, Italy), moments in time (think 1920s excess and avant-gardism), and works of art (for example, a photograph taken by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin), as well as memories and personal experiences. Gorhamborn in Sweden to a Canadian father and Indian mother, raised between Stockholm, Toronto, and New Yorkleverages his global background as a beauty industry 'outsider.' The Byredo difference? A preference for uncluttered notes and a dedication to quality craftsmanship. In addition to fragrancesperfumes, colognes, and roll-on oilsByredo offerings include personal care items such as bar soaps, body creams, lotions, and travel cases, plus scented candles for the home.
