If I say all-natural soliflore perfume is like a piece of juicy steak seasoned with just salt and pepper, then Byredo’s Flowerhead is a hot dog wiener. Not just flowers are processed but also the leaves and stems and everything else. A different kind of meal, a different kind of settings and “tastiness”. Flowerhead smells a little bit countryish and vegetal – like a bouquet of wild flowers, a flower garland made out of chrysanthemums and little berries. If you are too used to smelling roses, Flowerhead is a completely different kind of floral perfume.
Flowerhead is not a really elegant or sophisticated scent, but I have seen people in New York wearing expensive-looking suits eating a hot dog on the street telling people through body language that, “Hey I am quite rich but I am also casual and fun.” So I’d say Flowerhead can be worn on formal or informal occasions. Its heavy-handed use of synthetics for its base makes it one of the most bombastic heavy sillage scents I have ever worn.
