The desert is blooming.
You shouldn't actually fall into the house with a comment, but I can't help it: The most interesting thing about Mojave Ghost is the company background of Byredo or Ben Gorham and the explanation what the scent has to do with the desert, which I found at ALzD.
The perfume itself looks familiar to me, but it probably doesn't remind me of a single fragrance at all, but of the many perfumes of this kind that I have seen come and go in about 40 years before the fragrance shelf. On the other hand, Miracle, Beautyful, Daisy, Tresor in Love or the like are just a few examples. This is not a derogatory judgment at all, because these fragrances have in common that they are flowery, sometimes discreetly fruity, but never sweet, have a pleasant freshness and don't get on anyone's nerves. They spread well-being and that's that.
The desert flower Mohavea confertiflora, which gave the fragrance its name, seems to have developed amazing survival strategies to survive in inhospitable environments despite its delicacy. Admittedly, the comparison is far-fetched, but the Byredo fragrance surprises me despite its fresh flowery and rather harmless character with astonishing staying power. So Mojave Ghost is by no means a lightweight, but I am missing an edge, some depth and a pinch of dirt and a little surprise
I think every one of us - and by that I mean just us ladies for a change - should have such a fragrance in our repertoire. In my collection Grisette takes over this role. The fact that I only address ladies here once is simply because I would have the feeling of putting a pink Tütü over a man with this smell. Seen in this light, the fragrance also stands out in comparison to other Byredo fragrances. Mojave Ghost Welten is away from the seriousness of Rose of No Men's Land or Baudelaire.
