About Safran Nobile

When perfumer, Louison Grajcar was attending a friends wedding, he was moved by the scent of saffron coming from the food, the colors of the saris worn by the crowd and the sounds of the sitar. This fragrance was inspired by his memories of the wedding: a mix of traditionnal Indian weddings with a Bollywood flavour

Reviews of Safran Nobile

There is one review of Safran Nobile .
Knockout saffron – for about two hours. The recreation is so warm and authentic that it pushed my previous saffron favourite (L’Artisan’s Safran Troublant) off its top spot. My cultural background immediately makes me associate saffron with special occasions where rich rice dishes and desserts containing this expensive spice would be served. For me the association isn’t, however, particularly foody but of the hospitality and contentment of such feasts, where people would attend dressed to the nines. The creator of Safran Nobile Louison Libertin was similarly inspired by attending a London wedding party and the olfactory memory he formed must have been similar to mine.
The saffron here is not sniffed from a little box (which is admittedly also heavenly) but drifts across the air promising treats to come. It is backed by just a hint of cardamom (a pairing also found in the dreamiest kulfis and kheers) and given extension and kept dry by a subtle anise. But there is no doubting that the saffron is the star and it is as close to the real thing as you will get in perfumery.
However, it doesn’t last – after a couple of hours of unadulterated joy it was gone and I was left with a barely perceptible somewhat floral murmur on my skin. This time I didn’t care about its short life and plumped for a bottle – because I knew I would wear it copiously. It can be a morning hit, which, when it runs out, can be refreshed, or a bed time soother – or I could wear something else entirely over the remnants without fear of them interfering. As long as it gives me that feeling of something precious and special, it is doing what it should – such things often don’t last.
