“SAFFRON WHISPER concentrates the sensation of infinity in one of the most mystical ingredients–oud (agarwood). I wanted to create a perfume that could bring you into the heart of the desert and free your mind of this stressful world. Far away, a smoky wisp of incense floats towards the heavens. This perfume is a pure elixir of sensuality and elegance lying between light and shadow, oud in accord with saffron. I used birch with frankincense combined with rose to create the unique smell of noble luxury in a perfume.”
