long lasting saffrony
The opening is dry and absolutely saffrony with a creamy somewhat honeyish amber.

I like it a lot!

After some minutes the dryness goes halfway away and it settles still honeyish-saffrony. It’s warm, embosoming and quite elegant.

I can’t follow the amount of negative reviews and especially the silly text rated as “in depth” with a bunch of nonsensical gibberish…

I’d even say if you’re female and enjoy rather masculine scents with spices, Amber and saffron as base that’s a safe buy.

I enjoy it a lot and it’s not too sweet nor gourmand, on the contrary, it‘s a very elegant and rich truly unisex scent. It’s got that sweet honeyish note somewhere in the background but it doesn’t stitch. The saffron doesn’t allow it.

I didn’t like Velvet Tonka from BDK, for me, nauseatingly sweet as I also dislike Kirke (a mess of unfathomable dimensions), Initio’s aphrodisiac (blergh), MFK Gentle fluidity gold (I like the silver tho!) and other candy-bombs that for me smell cheap by the way…

If you would enjoy an uncommon and dry creamy ambery saffrony fragrance in your collection, just get it. Actually the single scent I like from the House BDK.

a cotton candy plastic fruit bowl of a bad poem
I am testing BDK’s Ambre Safrano and thinking of a collection of contemporary poetry that I’ve been reading. I’m making this connection because it’s really bad poetry. And I am now 0/2 with the samples that I have tried from BDK Parfums. Now I realize both poetry and perfume and all forms of art are intensely subjective, and what’s considered “bad” in terms of any of it can have a lot to do with personal preference. Ambre Saffano is meant to take us on a faraway olfactory journey, but I think they’ve vastly overestimated the distance this scent has the capability of encompassing because the places that it shows us seem pretty limited.. It goes as far as your laptop screen or the phone, a few inches from your face, as it’s the olfactory equivalent of fanfiction without a single measure of spice, none of the characters have any chemistry, and the writing is weirdly overwrought for a story with absolutely no plot, and then you take that uninspired mess and run it through some sort of poetry generator, and you end up a word salad that somehow manages to be nonsensical and boring and not only are you not enjoying it, it’s actually giving you a bit of a headache. And if I haven’t told you anything about what it actually smells like, that’s because I truly do not know. But imagine a bowl of plastic fruit. A facsimile of fruit, of something sweet and seasonal and juicy that once existed somewhere, but the person who molded this fruit maybe has never even seen this fruit. Imagine you melted down to a slurry those waxy, musty plastic apples and grapes and bananas and dumped in a Costco-sized bag of Truvia, and attempted to make cotton candy with it. And then, for some ungodly reason, you wrote a poem about it. Ok, this review is all over the place, and you’re probably walking away from it dumber than when you started. If it’s any consolation, I am too.

Opening warm-spicy with plum, but as a whole, this scent is Initio's Blessed Baraka without the muskiness/sweetness/sillage.

The opening is nice but it quickly becomes an odd smelling creation with the black leather overpowering the other notes. Disappointing.

Opening was very nice- deep, churchy incense- but was barely noticeable after 1.5 hours.
