BDK Parfums launched its latest fragrance Ambre Safrano which is Harrods exclusive. It is one of the most unique out of all BDK fragrances and is a powerhouse in my opinion. Ambre Safrano is something that was missing in the BDK line and this gorgeous creation completes the collection so far. Although I am sure, David Benedek – the founder of BDK Parfums would have thought about his next project already!
Inspiration – Sensual and intense, amber is at the center of the olfactory narrative of the new Harrods exclusive. Ambre Safrano explores the oriental facets of this emblematic raw material. Blended with saffron, suede, and woods, the fragrance transports the wearer to the burning heat of the Orient. The golden tones of the saffron reveal a leathery, velvety, gourmand softness. By combining vanilla with the sensuality of sandalwood and oakwood, Ambre Safrano takes us on a heady faraway olfactory journey.

Julien Rasquinet has also created Tabac Rose for BDK Parfums along with some other popular fragrances. As soon as I saw the notes of Ambre Safrano on the website, I was craving this fragrance. Exquisite, Intense & Sensual are the words that come to my mind when I smell Ambre Safrano. This fragrance has an oriental feel to it without the addition of Oud to the composition. It is a spicy, woody fragrance with a slight gourmand touch. It is a unisex fragrance but leans slightly masculine (LOVE it on my husband). It projects like crazy and lasts on skin and clothes forever! I sprayed it on my scarf a few days ago and could still smell the fragrance – that kind of beast it is! Ambre Safrano is an autumn-winter fragrance that cuts through the cold weather. Being Harrods exclusive, it will attract many Middle-Eastern Niche clients of Harrods along with everyone else who loves Spicy Woody fragrances. If you’re in the UK, I would recommend visiting Harrods to give Ambre Safrano a try or if you’re an Oriental fan, you may order it online too.
Until next time, Ashh xo
