It's Already Too Late to Get Travis Scott's Byredo Fragrance Collaboration
The year 2020 has brought us more than a few strange and unexpected beauty collaborations: Kylie Cosmetics and Dr. Seuss, HipDot and hot sauce brand Tapatío, Morphe and Lisa Frank… if anything, this year had proven that when it comes to these partnerships, truly anything is possible. Case in point: the collection by Byredo and Travis Scott that dropped, seemingly out of nowhere, on November 30.
The collaboration between the rapper and brand is a scent called Space Rage, available in candle ($95) format and a 3.4-ounce eau de parfum ($285). Both are encased in royal blue glass that fades to an orchid purple near the bottom and feature Scott's immediately recognizable handwriting. And if you thought a partnership between a luxury fragrance company and a rap superstar was already a little out there, wait until you hear its lineup of top, heart, and base notes.
According to a press release from Byredo, the top notes of Space Rage are cosmic dust and antimatter particles, followed by heart notes of starlight and "the scent of supernova." Base notes atmospheric vapor and dark nebulae round the whole thing out. Now, I don't know about you, but I don't spend too much time in outer space, so I'm completely damn clueless as to what this fragrance and candle might actually smell like. Based on what some astronauts have described in the past, I can only assume it's something along the lines of raspberries and burning metal — something sweet and metallic.

What's certainly true of this unlikely partnership is that, no matter what it actually smells like, it's wildly high in demand. Less than a day after Scott revealed the products on Instagram, they sold out completely. Allure reached out to Byredo to confirm whether or not a restock is in the cards for the future and, according to a representative, that has yet to be decided. Until then, Scott's and Byredo's fans who weren't able to snag the collection this time will just have to imagine what they think this funky fragrance might smell like.
When (and if) it's restocked, you can find the Travis Scott x Byredo collection, $95-$285, at travisscott.com.
