Crystal Saffron built around one of the highest quality saffron oils in the world – from the Kozani region of Greece is a 360 degree screen capture of this most expensive and complex of spices, from its piercing iodine flare to its dusky, sunburnt leather finish. Habanolide musk accentuates the glow of the saffron until it shines as brightly as freshly-polished gold, while Somalian incense creates a woody-smoky resinousness that acts as a dark backdrop against which the bright, almost foiled properties of that amazing saffron can shine.
Ambroxan infuses the whole affair with a spicy, peppery radiance that feels like leather or wood made air. An extremely attractive scent, Crystal Saffron will appeal to anyone (man or woman) hunting that rare thing – a scent that manages to blend exoticism of fiery spice with the comfort of supple, well-worn leather.
Crystal Saffron is the fragrance of the Matiere Premiere brand, which once again surprises me with a wonderful composition in which we will find such ingredients as: saffron, musk, incense and ambroxan. The composition opens with the scent of the richness of saffron and musk. The whole thing is clean and incredibly electrifying. Just like crystal saffron. There are light hints of incense in the background. In the next stage we get more aromatic incense and the characteristic smell of ambroxan. Dry and expressive saffron dominates here. It is very interesting that in this composition we do not get much sweetness, which is rarely seen in compositions with saffron as the main ingredient. The fragrance is really crystal clear, cool and extremely alluring. This is a fantastic piece of work that the matiere Premiere brand will be proud of for many years to come. It is a work of art that will be admired by anyone who tries this fragrance.
