“I feel that perfume often tries to capture one idea or one emotion. Lil Fleur is about capturing a complex personality, one we can all recognise. As a brother to a sister and a father to a daughter, in my experience it does not get more beautiful and interesting than the personalities of a young spirit.”
Ben Gorham, Creative Director and Founder, BYREDO
Inspired by a heady, surging world of youthful emotions, both happy and sad, and with a great debt to music, the scent is ultimately an interpretation of promise and potential, audaciousness and sincerity.
At its heart is a Damascena Rose, sparkling, crisp and enveloping in its sweetness. Top notes of cassis and tangerine, add to the crisp sparkle. While saffron soothes in its warm tones. Blonde woods, amber and vanilla, add notes of sophistication at the base of the fragrance.

"The idea for Blanche is, as the name suggests, built around my perception of the colour white. For the first time I actually made a fragrance for and with a specific person in mind. I wanted to capture her innocent and untainted side, with a fragrance almost transparent in nature. Blanche also represents an appreciation for classic beauty. The fragrance is pure and simple in structure but extreme in character." - Ben Gorham, founder
