Byredo Mojave Ghost:Fragrance Description

The Mojave Desert stretches across parts of California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, showcasing a vast landscape with extreme climates. Its name originates from a Native American term meaning "land without water." The atmospheric beauty of the Mojave Desert is as comforting to some as it is hostile to others. Despite the harshness, trees and plants in this arid desert defy the odds, persisting since ancient civilizations and defying the vulnerabilities of human existence.

One extraordinary inhabitant of this desert is the ghostly flower, a rare species that courageously blooms amidst the parched and hardened soil. Its delicate, nearly transparent petals exude fragility, yet this remarkable plant thrives where life seems almost impossible. Its otherworldly appearance contradicts its own resilience and nature. Despite the dry surroundings and its inability to produce nectar, the ghost flower, also known as Mojave Ghost, maintains its captivating and majestic beauty, blooming year after year.

Determined to stand out.
With a light and graceful character, Mojave Ghost is named for the flower that thrives against the odds.


In a stunning demonstration of ingenuity, the ghost flower employs mimicry to lure pollinators from neighboring plant species. By adopting colors resembling female bees, it entices and deceives male bees, displaying behavior remarkably similar to humans. This captivating tale of survival and the flower's ingenuity have inspired the creation of Byredo Mojave Ghost fragrance - a tribute to this extraordinary and enchanting flower.

The fragrance is a delicate blend of woody notes, offering a gentle and sophisticated character that gradually unveils its true depth. The initial impression is of airy musky ambrette seed combined with the sweetness of fresh Jamaican blackberry. As the scent develops, a delicate and powdery violet note emerges, revealing a soft and velvety sandalwood, invigorated by the essence of magnolia. Finally, a warm and creamy musk envelops the elegant cedarwood, leaving a lingering presence on the skin. This fragrance captures the essence of the Mojave Ghost, evoking its ethereal and captivating spirit.
