Byredo Mojave Ghost

Byredo Mojave Ghost | Mood Maybe

When it comes to scents, the more exotic, unisex and dusty desert-inspired the better, as far as I'm concerned. I'm still hanging on to my last bottle of D.S. & Durga's  Cowgirl Grass, using it slowly and sparingly on special occasions or whims, but ever since it became clear it's been discontinued, I've been on the hunt for something to replace it  So when I saw Byredo's newly released scent Mojave Ghost on both Vogue and Harper's Bazaar last week, I knew I had to try it.

Inspired by the "xeric wilderness" of the Mojave Desert and an intriguing flower that thrives there, Mojave Ghost is composed of notes of Ambrette (a naturally musky scent derived from Indian hibiscus), (somewhat inexplicably) a tropical fruit called Jamaican nesberry, and more explicably violet, sandalwood and crisp amber.

Anything based on the unlikely abundance of beauty that seeps out of the scarcity of the desert, I can get behind. Stay tuned for a test fest.
