The name says it all
Smells like sticking your nose into a bunch of tulips (and maybe some other flowers)... i could smell it for hours... the scent has something very feminine and somehow totally pure and for me it smells different and much more special than other flower scents... next spring will definitely be my fragrance no. 1

Crystal clear cold on a spring morning
I love the morning. At noon I'm always somehow tired, the morning and afternoon are dominated by work, in the evening I relax and take a gourmet walk - but the morning is everything for me. The earlier, the better, especially in the warmer season. It basically starts as soon as it is light early in the morning - then I love to get up and get out. Whether it's just with a coffee on the balcony, or with breakfast in the garden or with the dog in the nature - it doesn't matter.

I love to see the fog rising over the river and the vineyards in the shade, only a few areas being bathed in sunlight. I love the absolute silence, interrupted only by the chirping of birds. But most of all I love the crystal-clear cold air on an early, sunny morning in spring. This clarity, this purity, the sun that is still too weak to warm the air so that with every breath I take I deeply suck in this diamond air - that is the metaphor for a new beginning. Whenever I get the chance for such a morning walk in the sunny cold, I reset life and start over. Plans, intentions, goals - all of this suddenly seems feasible, achievable. In the crystal-clear morning the geometry of my life opens up to me in a completely logical structure - and I draw all the hope I can get.

On mornings like these, there are only two spring scents for me that reflect this perfect purity and clarity - one of them is La Tulipe by Byredo. It was through this fragrance that I became aware of the niche segment in the first place. When I first smelled La Tulipe, it was like a revelation for me, and I expected a lot from Byredo - an expectation that has unfortunately not been fulfilled for me with the brand's other fragrances. They often seem to me to be synthetic and constructed in a way that bypasses nature. La Tulipe is quite different: the very first moment, the top note, is so perfect, so clear, so pure, so harmonious, so round. The perfect fragrance, crystal clear like fresh, cold spring water, flowery and deeply nuanced, without sweetness, without hardness. A perfectly soft, pure floral fragrance, symbol of growth, symbol of the moment when the blossom presents itself in all its delicate beauty. Alpine violet and above all freesia are responsible for the absolute freshness. I know this tone from other spring scents as a carrier of freshness. However, the freshness does not give the impression of fresh laundry to me, I cannot detect the slightest, tiniest resemblance to Blanche by Byredo. While Blanche really smells like the starch in my freshly ironed bed linen, La Tulipe is the freshness of pure spring water in the mountains. If the tulip then joins in the heart note, I can only agree with the previous speakers: a real tulip is relatively odourless and cannot achieve the effect here. I too perceive a hint of lilac, but in a very moderate form and not to be compared with the sweet heaviness that is in the air on summer evenings from the lilac in my garden. Here at La Tulipe, the tulip is above all a symbol of the materialised spring, of clarity, new beginnings and purity. It is a very beautiful, round scent, by no means synthetic in any way, which is only absorbed very late, after many hours, by slightly tart, woody notes. The perfectly simple bottle, the white label and the colorless transparency of the fragrance are a perfect match for this experience.

In this respect, I personally consider La Tulipe to be the real, underrated masterpiece of Byredo, which no other fragrance of the brand can match. How could it? No other fragrance symbolises pure, fresh water like La Tulipe.

4000 carats
Like when the head gardener
of the liberated artistic world
( Department of Horticulture )
invited you
with him and other ambitious
through gardening
and the planting of bulbs
to do something to improve the whole world:
to experience the spring,
in all its splendour and abundance,
later once, later then...
after frost, next spring,
you know, like always: later!

Since you can't say no, though,
and it also
a sensible matter
seems to be,
you join the round dance
all the happy
*Supi*Mega*Krass* do-gooders
of today and tomorrow.

You mean about that already
the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany
for special services
to feel dangling from the circus jacket -
4000 carats, all occupied,
what the known
and rare earths so give -
and also Markus Lanz has already
( in case of success ) reported:
... "if you can have a chat at ´,
in a relaxed round, in the evening about 22 o'clock,
AKK would also..."

And then you get
at first almost a bit scared,
until your nine-year-old nephew tells you
that AKK is not a assault rifle,
but the future,
thought
Queen of Germany.
There the fear gives way quickly
and you say, "Yes, Markus, yes!"

That's how it pulls,
hardworking voles equal,
all light and cheerful out
in the now early autumn
and slowly pale green
becoming garden of all senses.
Actually, it's still too warm,
to work properly
and so all decide
first of all about the general questions
of the universe and the creative
To philosophize about living together.
("you duzt here,
where are the toilets,
everyone's got something to grill,
are you insured too?")

The convivial round
then forgets itself over it in a lively chat -
and before even the first sod is turned,
it's getting dark slowly,
and the first day is over.

Tackling the spade would be a task,
would have been to do,
dig, loosen and ventilate the earth,
to now soon the flower bulbs
into the ground,
on which they will bloom rich and glorious
in spring.
All this does not happen now despite best intentions,
and so you retire
in your personal untouchable sulking angle.
Because there you can do things like that
and leave
as you like.

No one to tell you what's good about it,
waiting months for this or that,
because it would be worth it in the end.
"Oh, don't tell me, I hear that all the time,
also on other occasions.
And what is?
Nothing but lip service.
I'm tired of you,
i say three times no:
no to AKK,
Mark and them,
who ...mean well with me."

The topic is:
is the tulip in cold air.
At the beginning a tulip fragrance,
twenty-fold,
and in the further course
freesia blooming,
and also the lilac
comes with lilasamten.

A trio,
which together is very nice and fresh,
skilfully thought through
and wonderfully flowery.

La Tulipe is not:
"Keukenhoftulpenüberschwangduft"

La Tulipe is a:
"Adriandertulpendiebsilbergoldundedelsteindelsuft"
