I am wearing it I wore it… It inspires me It doesn't inspire me


Seven Veils opens with a pairing of carrot seed (a slightly irisy note) and hot pepper, as well as an almost liquory note. The alliance of spicy and floral tonalities in the heart grants the fragrance a carnation impression. The intensely vanilla, lightly powdery close is softened with sandalwood.

At a glance

A spicy-vanilla dance


In-the-know brand Byredo ‘unveils’ Seven Veils, a spicy-oriental scent that is floral and powdery, too. Ben Gorham, Byredo’s founder, got his inspiration from the Biblical tale of Salome and her Dance of the Seven of the Seven Veils. Warm and sensual, the name refers to the art of seduction that Salome indulged in… going so far as to demand a man’s head on a tray in exchange for a single dance. For her or for him.

Eau de Parfum 1.7 and 3.4 oz.


You’ll recognize the house’s signature bottle, a sleek, uncluttered cylinder with a black cap.

    I'm sorry but I disagree with the description of carrot seed as smelling like iris. I have smelled it and pure - it smells like a carrot with actual dirt still on it. Very raw earth. It can smell nice in a perfume if balanced well with correct raw ingredients. Jamaica pepper and bay and liqueur in the mix make me think a stew is brewing here. Not inspired.

    Je ne suis pas sur d'adhérer avec les notes de carotte et de piment mais j'aime les fragrances particulière et unique et je suis curieuse de nature donc il serait intéressant de le sentir.....

    Une gourmandise à consommer sans modération! Un sillage enveloppant de douceur et qui invite à la tentation. Ça sent un peu le café, sur un fond vanillé et légèrement boisé! C'est extra!
