Getting rid with your dry hands? BYREDO has launched a new scent to their hand lotion collection — Tulipmania. It is a new hand lotion inspired by the historical phenomenon also known as "tulip fever". Tulips were introduced into Europe from Turkey shortly after 1550, and the delicately formed, vividly coloured flowers became a popular if costly item.
The flower has becoming a very high demand in different colours. The entire Dutch society of the time was using to trade bulbs for fantastic prices, even houses and estates were put on mortgage. Therefore, the term "tulip mania" is now often used figuratively to refer to any large economic bubble when asset prices deviate from inherent value.
No matter how tulips have primarily been looking overpriced because of their looks and not for the scent. BYREDO is still willing to take up the challenge to redefine the intrinsic value of the tulip's fragrance. Inspired by the unprecedented degree of abstraction in which the tulip was placed during the Tulip mania. This new scent is an attempt to reconstitute an imaginary smell. With a basic smell of blonde woods and a flowery by the notes of Freesia, this new scent can definitely beat the current hand range of Rose, Suede and Vetyver.
