Demeter Saffron by Demeter Cologne. Saffron is the monarch of spices, and Demeter Saffron brings its luxurious accords to life.
This 2016 aromatic spicy unisex fragrance features a single saffron note with rich mix of tones. Producing saffron threads is labor-intensive – red stigmas and golden styles must be harvested from autumn crocuses by hand. Drying turns them into the familiar spice, but it takes around 13,000 threads to make an ounce of saffron. But this fragrance’s opulent accords are
well worth the labor. The wearer is rewarded with grassy, earthy and woody aroma accompanied by bitter, honey and floral undertones.
Saffron is only one of almost 400 fragrances produced by Demeter Fragrance Library, an American niche perfume brand founded by Christopher Brosius and Christopher Gable. Besides its U.S. arm, the company also operates as The Library of Fragrance in Europe. Founded in 1993, the brand offers both traditional and unusual scents: Dirt, Pixie Dust, Patchouli, Hawaiian Vanilla and more.
