Organic grown in the Kashmir Valley of India, Crocus sativus L. is the Saffron producing flower world renown as the most expensive spice. Saffron is a luxurious spice because of the arduous task of hand removing stigmas, also called threads, from the flower. Each flower produces only three with over 80,000 crocus flowers needed to obtain just one pound of dried stigmas for spice. The space required to grow 80,000 crocus flowers encompasses one acre. To produce Saffron absolute hundreds of thousands dried flower stigmas are needed. Our Saffron absolute is artisan made once per year with the rest dedicated to annual spice production.

Saffron absolute is a must have for natural perfumers. We make this delicacy available with natural perfume artisans in mind. Saffron absolute demonstrates a very interesting and complex odor profile that can impart a beautiful leathery, earthy heart note in a modern chypre or best sweetened in a gourmand blend. Just a tiny amount can meld notes into a sophisticated perfume of distinction.

Aromatherapy use
: Although there are research articles on PubMed citing inhibition of cancel cell growth from crocin (one of the natural chemical components in Saffron) and other sources that indicate Saffron to be an anticonvulsant, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-tussive, aphrodisiac, and emmenagogue we make this absolute available for experienced natural perfume artisans rather than aromatherapy use.

General use
: Natural perfume

Contraindications: Avoid if pregnant. Skin sensitization; use in very low amounts of 0.001-0.005 in finished products.

Spicy buttery
Saffron essential oil imparts a beautiful and elegant scent. It has a buttery, creamy , and leathery essence to it when you first test it on a fragrance strip. It is very rich but not overpowering at all. After dry down, the oil imparts a slightly spicy essence that is more gourmand but doesn't necessarily remind you of food per se. It is definitely a sexy heart note that if paired with black spruce, it will work well as a men's fragrance.
