One For the Road - Into The Gloss

One For the Road


"I have something for you," a mystery man behind me whispered, outside a party back in February. A gift is a gift (and that line, in New York, could go very wrong), but a surprise encounter with Ben Gorham—the dreamy, tattooed 6'3" former basketball player and current mastermind behind indie fragrance line Byredo—is something to get pretty excited about.

The next day, a pristine white box arrived at my doorstep, containing three travel-size vials of my favorite Gorham creation, Accord Oud, along with a monogrammed python case with a magnetic closure. I scrounged around the bottom of my purse and took out all the other trial-sized bottles I'd been carting around, caps broken off, and replaced them with this objet d'art. 

This week, Gorham revealed several new travel cases for fall, available now on Treat a friend, sure, but treat yourself first.

    These look so amazingly luxe! I haven't had the pleasure of trying any of the Byredo perfumes yet, but I definitely plan on it!

    A very lovely gift indeed. What a stunning case for a very lovely fragrance. I did not know a former basketball player was behind Byredo. Very cool
