Byredo makes a perfume for your clothes

Cotton fresh

The cult perfumery's latest offering is not meant to be worn on the skin, but sprayed on textiles

Byredo is known for its interesting scents. But its lifestyle products like its velvety hand creams and candles are also quietly luxurious. The newest addition to the line-up is a textile perfume. Simply named Toile, French for a canvas or linen fabric, this is meant to scent the fabrics around you. From clothing to cushions to curtains (if you're feeling especially lavish), this delicate fragrance will envelop you in the smell of sun-warmed cotton.

Byredo Toile
The scent consists of top notes of bergamot and fresh aldehydes, a heart of lily of the valley and violet silk and base notes of cotton musks and amber. Designed to blend in with other home fragrances seamlessly, like a caress of cotton jersey on the skin, spray this onto any textiles or fabrics, for an inobtrusive elegance. In fact, in our hot weather, this might be a smarter way to wear perfume. At a friendly price point, this is also the perfect gift for the person who has it all, as well as a good introduction to the brand.
