Fit To Be Tied
When Ben Gorham launched his Byredo Seven Veils fragrance last fall, we couldn’t have been happier. On a perpetual quest for a new signature scent following the end of a love affair with L’Occitane’s Eau des Baux for men, we were surprised by just how much we loved the carrot, pimento berries, Tahitian vanilla flower, vanilla bean, and tiger orchid scent. Sworn haters of vanilla perfumes, this one somehow managed to be spicy and earthy rather than overwhelmingly sweet; it’s been our go-to ever since. At the time of its debut, there were rumors that Gorham was also planning to introduce a series of limited-edition scarves designed in collaboration with M/M Paris to go along with the fragrance—”veils,” if you will, that you could spray with the scent, thus offering a totally different fragrance-wearing experience. This week, the silk accessories have finally hit shelves at Barneys—in very limited quantities (there are seven different prints, each of which was screened onto 25 scarves) and packaged with a limited-edition bottle of Seven Veils. It’s pretty much the perfect, all-inclusive Mother’s Day gift. Bring your own card.
$430, available at Barneys New York.
