The perfume’s top notes are Chinese grapefruit, juniper berries, and saffron; middle notes are black violet and leather base notes are cashmeran vetiver and raspberry.Designer About Byredo Fragrances: Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Byredo was founded by painter-turned-creative-director Ben Gorham in 2006. Partnering with perfumers Olivia Giacobetti and Jerome Epinette, Gorham’s scents are inspired by distinct places (such as Palermo, Italy), moments in time (think 1920s excess and avant-gardism), and works of art (for example, a photograph taken by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin), as well as memories and personal experiences.
The perfume is an oriental, spicy fragrance for men and women. Black Saffron was launched in 2012. The perfume’s top notes are Chinese grapefruit, juniper berries, and saffron; middle notes are black violet and leather base notes are cashmeran vetiver and raspberry.
Ben Gorham, founder and Creative Director of Byredo says about this perfume: “Black Saffron is inspired by the idea of ultimate unity. Each year I become more aware of my roots and this fragrance describes this process.
