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.

This fragrance hits all the right notes. The opening has a beautiful fruity vibe that wakes up your senses. The Grapefruut and Saffron compliment each other well. That same brightness lives through out the fragrance along with this comforting envelope of leather. Absolutely one of the best By this house.
My husband and I both sampled Black Saffron. I thought it was OK; he absolutely loved this scent. The sample seemed sufficiently strong, i.e. not watered down, and lasted a long time. Definitely a unisex perfume.
Amazing intoxicating smell, that has a great longevity. It is unisex and mysterious. It is perfect for winter.
