Byerdo’s Olfactive Stéréophonique Diffuser Is Like a Speaker for Scents

While scented oil diffusers continue to grow in popularity, their aesthetics often leave a lot to be desired. Basically, we’re forced to choose between a cone-shaped glowing mister or a handful of sticks in a bottle. But fragrance icon Byredo is taking a different approach with its experimental new limited-edition diffuser that draws its design inspiration from the world of HiFi audio.

Devon Turnbell, the founder of design-centric speaker manufacturer OJAS, helped design Byerdo’s gorgeous new home fragrance product. Classily named the Olfactive Stéréophonique, which is French for stereophonic olfactory, this state-of-the-art diffuser makes use of speaker design theory for the sake of implementing an exclusive scent into your living space, giving your nose the same kind of pampered, preferential treatment your ears have been getting for years.

As mentioned above, the scent produced by this olfactory speaker (note: this machine does not produce sounds, only smells) is an exclusive one that only comes equipped within the diffuser’s ten included capsules. Its smoky top notes consist of incense, clove bud, and bay, while its floral heart notes evoke the smells of carnation, labdanum, and ylang-ylang. This aromatic fusion is rounded out with a heady base of papyrus, Haitian vetiver, and Guaiac wood.

The same vain in which one should never judge a book by its cover is applicable here, as one should never judge a diffuser by its speaker-inspired design. Byerdo’s Olfactive Stéréophonique was listed for $1,300 but sold out nearly as quickly as it went on sale. We’re hoping Byredo decides to bring its novel design back for another run, but even if they don’t, the diffuser’s mechanics are still worthy of getting a closer look at the perfumer’s website.

Purchase: $1,300
