Juice, fruit and flesh
What I get from Pulp is a loud opening of blackcurrant that manages to give off an overly ripened profile outcoming from the combination of fig, apple and tiaré which I am not sure people are familiar with and its uneasy facet. Generally speaking the fig is present top to bottom to reinforce this effect of food on the brink of deterioration and therefore the smell isn't as poetic as other fig-centric perfumes. I must say that once you tie all the pieces in your mind this becomes a strong, confident, likeable, feminine leaning perfume.

No go
This fragrance smells on my skin like gathered fruit, just not good at all. In addition, there is a biting bergamot. Really the worst fragrance I have ever smelled on me, I was really sick of. Even before the Xerjoff Ebra Pura I already found disgusting.
There are certainly people on whom he smells good and pleasant but on me horror. Has always to do with the personal PH value

The splendour of fruit
When spraying on this fragrance is unlike anything I know.
On the skin, a pure fruit explosion takes place first. I notice here the peel of a sour apple, tangy bergamot and then pleasantly bitter currant. Underpinned is this fragrance spectacle of discreet cardamom and a proper fructose sweetness.
Here I must immediately think of summer and southern, juicy fruit, which is quite true to the name of the perfume. Later I perceive a sweet mint in combination with fig, whereby the apple rather recedes. Still, the fragrance remains tart, as the currant is very dominant. A discreet peach touch compliments the fresh fruit splendor and lets this become lovely-floral in the finish.

The composition is very complex. Individual notes blend into a euphoric and fruity whole. This even has taste substance and encourages dreamy wanderlust. For me, Pulp is a relatively feminine fragrance, which I like as such extremely well.

Decomposition of fruit
Not a nice title I know. I grew up in Spain and we used to have lots of citrus fruit trees, all of the fruit that had fallen off the trees was piled up at the bottom of the garden. This smells like this pile of fruit. I guess this is why I love it. It reminds me of happy places and that's what fragrance is all about. Its really the opening that's hard to digest but it settles down nicely. This is in my 2021 summer fragrance wardrobe and great to wear on a summers evening. Go easy on the trigger and it's lovely. Lasts for a long time too.

Bergamot summer at the fruit buffet
A perfume that I already thought to myself that it doesn't really fit into the snowy December. No matter, I wanted to test it!
The first impression is intense and fixed: freshness, sour, strong fruitiness. Oddly enough, it smells like a mix of grapefruit and lime to me. Really tangy sour. Not at all dusty or old.
Then the bergamot comes in. Plus, and I can't explain this, coconut. Like some kind of coconut water. Light. Lime, bergamot and coconut. A fine blend.
I look out into the snow and think, thanks to my wrist, of a loud, brightly coloured beach bar with music, cocktails and 38°C sun. Very strange feeling in December with snowy garden ?
The scent dissipates relatively quickly.
What remains is a sugary sweet wrist à la Escada.
Not my fragrance. Maybe once, at 38°C. Maybe.

Overripe and unusual!
It is late summer, the flesh of the fruit is so ripe that it threatens to burst.
However, which fruits are involved is only speculation.
In any case for seasonal, local fruit The scent associates with me a still life of the old Flemish masters.
So does the fragrance progression - it is straightforward and yet, on closer inspection, one discovers new shades, or nuances.
He has a sweet one, which seems fresher to me than a vanilla gourmand one.
He's not very popular, but he's my favorite, so...

Sweet decadence
Pulp is a journey that starts at the final destination –the proverbial six feet under– with the last stages of decay and decomposition not happening underground but on our skin and under our nose. Straight out of the sprayer the figs, apples and berries are already way past their prime and beginning to soak in their own morbid, pungent syrupy juice. The challenging opening seems to veer quickly from somewhat pleasant fermenting booze to rancid fridge tray.

Then, just like footage running backwards all the fruits and flowers quickly come back to life. Caught in this reverse chronology blackcurrant leaves turn green, soft and fresh, figs sparkle with morning dew and the skin on the red apples shines again under the sun. The first stages of the dry down arrive like spring after a long winter and finally deliver on the promise of a sweet and juicy scent.

For me the end result was well worth the ride on this strange backwards journey.

Pulp by Byredo
Here is my video review of Pulp from the Swedish niche house, Byredo. As far as fruity powerhouses go, this one certainly fits into that category, I hope you find the review useful.

The fruit garden....
Before trying this, I didn't know what to expect. I heard things like "rotten fruit" and I wondered if this would be worth even trying at all. I was pleasantly surprised!

What I get from this actually, is almost the smell of (like the name) pulp. Fruit pulp. For me it's Mango pulp, and it's a smell I actually really like. I do also get apple and citrus in there, and some grape etc.

This is one I would recommend to people who like fruit and freshness. I do feel that it is a very cleverly made perfume and one which is composed intelligently. I would recommend it and would advise to try out first in good weather. I think this would be suitable for year round and would say that it is unisex. This is the smell of very ripe fruit up close. But it also has a balance which can only come from a well made perfume. One to try for sure. I thoroughly enjoy it.

Realistic, raw fruit.
When I first gave Pulp a sniff from the sample vial, I thought, “raw fruit, a little boring”. But after wearing awhile, I see there’s more to it than that. The more I smell Pulp, the more I smell something vegetal, rather than fruity. Pulp actually reminds me of 2 very different fragrances: Sweet Pea from Bath and Body Works, which smells exactly like fresh peas in the kitchen (with added sugar, of course), and Piment Brulant by L’Artisan, which smells like a vegetable garden. Yes, despite the listed notes, Pulp also has a slight vegetal smell to me, which keeps it from being too sweet. Maybe this seems odd, but I find this vegetal smell fascinating, even therapeutic. I don't think Pulp smells like rotting fruit, just very RIPE fruit. Overall, I like Pulp, but it seems a bit top-heavy, lacking substantial base notes which would make it a more wearable, well-rounded fragrance.
UPDATE: I want to add the word “addictive” to my review. That vegetal scent that some might call “pungent” or “rotten” is the very thing I find so appealing about Pulp. Without it, Pulp would be just another sweet, fruity fragrance.

A rather linear, slightly boozy, yet creamy/sweet floral-fruity Spring fragrance, with a brief spicy green-fruity opening. Good performance!

DIY recipe: leave some figs and red apples under the sun. Return 2 weeks later with a scoop and an empty flacon labelled "Pulp". I love it.
