I love the drydown of Safran Troublant with the vanilla, rose and sandalwood.
Any other fragrances with similar notes?
Keiko Mecheri Gourmandises reminds me a lot of Saffran Troublant. Serge Lutens Arabie reminds me a bit of it as well.
Someone else spotted the resemblance, but they're right...Bond No. 9 West Side is just like Safrant Troublant, without the saffron.
It sounds wonderful!
Having tried both of these I can definitely agree that the new Bond No. 9 West Side smells exactly like the L'Artisan minus the saffron.
