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 bit of balance.
I'm testing this stuff right at the moment. My opinion could change by tomorrow.

I'm in the middle of testing quite a few of the Byredo line, Pulp definitely stands out in terms of sillage. The other scents to test just could not compete. This leads me to think that it is very difficult to be ambivalent to this fragrance.

I'm not sure about fig, I find it a very difficult note, in that I cannot decide if I like of hate it. The opening of Pulp is bombastic and demands of the attention. A combination of Bergamot and the the Fig assaulting the senses. It was a close call whether I washed the stuff off, but I persevered. Currently I'm experiencing something sweet and green, not unpleasant.

I think I'll try this one again.

Maaaaaamaaaaaa, who died and was left to rot?
No, kiddos! This is the ultimate no-go. Help, I always thought pomace stinks, but Pulp tops even that.

Whoever detects something fruity here must have a disturbed sense of smell. SORRY, no offense, don't take it personal. This here is simply a mashed fruitbasket, left to rot for four days. The flies are buzzing around.

To make things worse a bitter note comes through, not being able to get rid of the allover rotten smell. And it has a staying power that devils brew. I really had problems to clean the back of my hand of the smell without rubbing the skin of.

No, thank you, not for me.

And thank you, Antoine, for the tester.

Over-ripe fruits
This is an intriguing scent which I found likeable, but the list of where best to wear it outside of one's home would be a rather short one, I'm afraid- it smells a bit like over-ripe fruit which is starting to ferment-

Gorgeous red apple & fig that smell sweet and fruity after the drydown but overripe or rotting during the opening. An aptly named weird one.+1
