Saffron is a spice. Saffron is a color. Saffron is a way of life. Black Saffron pays tribute to the many facets of saffron, weaving a spell of a spice symbolic of India. A vibrant citrus opening belies the deeper heart of the perfume. The aroma of saffron starts to wrap around you like holy robes, earthy and unmistakable. A dewy rose emerges, tickling your nose with a soft sweetness. Then, there it is, the surprise of leather nestled among the woods and vetiver. At once ancient and modern, Black Saffron brings all the traditions of the East alive while winking at you from the seat of a sleek motorcycle.
Byredo founder Ben Gorham, who was raised in India, worked with perfumer Jerome Epinette to create this homage to the holy spice that has become a symbol of India.

Amazing intoxicating smell, that has a great longevity. It is unisex and mysterious. It is perfect for winter.
Amazing scent! In the opening I mainly got Raspberry, rose, and a hint of saffron. While the raspberry persists, the fragrance later transitions to a smokey/tobacco cigarette, but it is very clean and likeable. Overall it's a play between sweet, tart, and smokey scents. Very unique, likeable, and easy to wear. I highly recommend this fragrance.
Super solid fragrance, gotten many compliments...
I got a sample from byredo counter to compare and I honestly feel that yours has been watered down.
