Mister Marvelous Byredo
For the launch of 'Mister Marvelous', Byredo founder Ben Gorham felt the world-renowned hair stylist Christiaan Houtenbos embodied the fragrance to a T. The dapper gent noted that "A marvelous thing must be strange in that it must be like nothing else," and with Mandarin Leaves, Bamboo, Black Amber and White Cedarwood in its composition, this scent certainly lives up to the challenge.
Ben Gorham is a native Swede, born to an Indian mother and a Canadian father, Ben grew up in Toronto, New York and Stockholm. He graduated from the Stockholm art school with a degree in fine arts, but a chance meeting with perfumer Pierre Wulff convinced him that he'd rather create fragrances than paintings. With no formal training in the field, Gorham, a 31-year old , sought out the services of world renowned perfumers Olivia Giacobetti and Jerome Epinette, explaining his olfactory desires and letting them create the compositions. As an outsider in the beauty industry, Ben is somewhat of an anomaly and has been recognized for his personal style and connection to fashion and art in several international magazines such as French Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle, V Magazine and Fantastic Man to name a few.

BYREDO was founded in 2006 by Ben Gorham. Ben began to be intrigued by scent and memory after travelling to his mother's hometown in India, where he was stirred by the aromas of spices and incense. Inspired by this trip, BYREDO's scented candles and perfumes have been developed with an understated approach, using simple composition of the highest quality raw materials.
