The grace of a thoroughbred lies not only in its sheer power but also the stunning economy of that power- the perfection of each movement, the efficiency of every step. Safanad, with its delicate, subtly complex floral warmth, is a reflection of this grace, taking advantage of a quieter, more restrained composition to truly showcase each note and impress on us a form of beauty all the more ravishing for its dignity. Opening with bright orange and a lusciously three-dimensional pear note, Safanad then stuns us with a floral heart led by sweet ylang and lightly earthy iris. A warm, rich base of vanilla, woods and amber cradles these florals, keeping a fresh femininity to the composition throughout its life. Lush and gorgeous, Safanad is proof that gentle and stunning are not mutually exclusive terms.

Soft floral. Smooth. Pretty. I definitely smell orange blossom. It gets better and better as it dries down (when the vanilla starts to feel present). It is subtle, not bold at all but still super pleasant and happy. This is a safe daytime fragrance. I like it quite a bit actually ('delicious' is a word that instinctively come to mind), and I would love to own it. It might even replace Athalia as my favorite (or tie it for my first place from this line).
I've heard people say it smells like Kilian's "Love Don't be Shy" (which I love) and JPG's "Classique" but I've never smelled the second one, and it doesn't remind me of the first, so I couldn't say. I do know that I really, really like this one.
Thank you scent split! I love being able to try things with out having to go for a full bottle. Nice glass decant and good sprayer as usual.
