Suède et Safran uses fiery Iranian saffron and Indian ambrette seed to build one of the most pleasurably buttery suede perfumes in existence. It smells like a soft, dun-colored suede jacket that’s been rubbed down with red-gold spice and musk grains until the delicate fibers begin to break down and dissolve into thin air.
The juxtaposition between smoke and spice is played just right here, with the scent exerting a subtle undertow of sweetness that’s downright addictive. Ambrette seed provides a boozy, unripe fruit note pitched halfway between pear and apple, and the vein of throaty spice lends a dark gingerbread sparkle. Quiet enough for day wear and yet assertive enough to give you billowing sillage on a big night out, Suède et Safran is the perfect fragrance for people who love creamy, haute-luxe leathers like Tuscan Leather and Black Saffron, but who want to branch out into a warmer, drier direction.
