About the Fragrance
In the ancient Mediterranean city of
Palermo, the regional capital of Sicily, the orange trees that Berber
and Moorish emirs planted long ago still grow. Their bergamot and
bigarade fruits light up Byredo's Palermo, a scent as close to olfactory
happiness as you can get, a perfume played in the highest, brightest
Palermo's citrus grove sits alongside a rose garden, its rose bushes greened up in spring with the smell of crushed orange tree leaves and sliced fruits: lemon, lime, grapefruit, and maybe even aromatic pomelo. In its opening, an effervescent freshness of citrus juice is layered with cut citrus rinds, their zest oils conveying a more intense richness, bitterness, and spice.
During your walk in the garden, as the sun warms your skin, a warm musk rises up, slightly powdery, softening the bracing freshness of the hesperidic top notes of Palermo and helping the freshness to linger with the warmth. This is a unisex fragrance perfect for warmer months.
