Suède et Safran is one of those fragrances that you, or at least I, immediately know of in this compilation. Nevertheless, I had to ponder for a long time and also try again the search function in relation to the two main actors leather and saffron.
Of course there are plenty of them and finally I came up with them. But I still want to keep the tension a little longer and ... or scent family members later betrayed.
What struck me about Suède et Safran, in addition to this somewhat softly rinsed leather frame and the very restrained saffron, is this underlaid fruity note, which is not specified, but which can have some berry qualities.
Or is it even a woody peach note or peachwood? Nah, more like currants, if not raspberries. And at the latest here it could ring with some, because the resemblance to Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford is not to be rejected (unless my bottling is contaminated with something else). However, the Tuscan Leather in question is at the same time coarser from the leather and I mean also more recognizable from the saffron and just has this smooth raspberry note as cultivated counterpoint, while Suède et Safran plays at the edge of the artificial as well as slightly penetrating.
Well, the fragrance is made harmonious, but at the same time very linear and therefore a candidate that can become annoying with time, especially since the shelf life goes to extremes.
And when I see what Nishane is calling for prices ... everyone should think his own way.
On the other hand, I wonder what would have happened to Suède et Safran if more (the promised) ginger had really set the tone.
