Last holiday I was hellbent on going out with a bang before leaving California. Bang meaning ultimate gift giving. I pride myself on knowing the extraordinary taste palate of my Mother. A stylish dame that has thankfully bestowed upon me a selective eye. Byredo is a shared love. One that was rooted deeply enough to merit an absurd purchase. One that I was sure was going to be for myself. But knowing that my Mom would likely never treat herself to such a frivolous luxury - it made it imperative I did.
I heard through the grapevine that Ben Gorham (the striking, nay, breathtakingly handsome devil), mastermind behind Byredo, was going to introduce a set of leather purse travelers. After inquiring with the man at Barney’s
who had just return from Stockholm, Sweden for training, I later discovered they were only an atelier item at that point.
Fast forward nine months and I had all but forgotten about a once fragrant obsession. Until Into The Gloss unveiled the whispers of this product have finally come to fruition. Nécessaire de Voyage - a collection of chic leather travel cases that are to house the newly released trio vials of Byredo’s fragrances.
Goddamn. Those are divine.
