Reviews of Persian Saffron

There is one review of Persian Saffron.
I am cautiously thumbs up because I really like this scent because it is pleasant and evocative, and offers all the mysteries of saffron up front; but, I am frustrated that the story starts and ends with saffron and seems incomplete in a way. The personality of saffron begs for other notes to show contrast against and it is great for that purpose. The notes list I have seen says Zegna Persian Saffron is composed of bergamot, citruses, saffron and exotic spices. It smells exactly like this too with exotic, threateningly raw saffron which flows continuously out into the world through a lemony citrus doorway and more or less ends its story when it passes through. The spices, mentioned as the closing notes are very dry, peppery and hard but leave tiny elegant swirling paisley trails of exotic saffron aroma that close and quickly disperse. This is a brief but very complete story in a fragrance. If you love saffron and persian orientalism in design, you will enjoy this fragrance.

Zegna has a nearly identical opening and mid notes of bergamot + saffron in another release, Zegna Incense Gold, which emerged a year earlier, 2016 and contains the same saffron opening scent which is paired with frankincense and leather which makes a very complimentary blend and a great fragrance. Somebody at Zegna was sniffing this wonderful Incense Gold, saffron opening and might have said - "this smells wonderful without all this incense and leather, put that in a bottle and add a slight spice trail to it!". They did and it works. Persian Spice gets 8 of 10 stars.
