Black Saffron - Travel Spray Set of 3 x 12ml EdP's

$ 110.00

Saffron, the spice derived from the dried stigmas of the Saffron Crocus, has been cultivated for more than 3500 years and remains one of the world’s costliest substances. With it’s beautiful, intense golden-orange color and hay-like scent it has been used as a seasoning, dye, medicine and fragrance. It is holy to all Hindus, is the color of Buddhist robes and has become a symbol for India. BYREDO’s ‘Black Saffron’ is a fragrance inspired by this very idea of sublime unity.

The Eau de Parfum opens with the bright citrus note of the Asian pomelo and crisp juniper berries, mellowed into silage by Kashmiri saffron. At the heart lies black violet fused with leather accord. At the base, blond woods add radiant warmth and harmony, punctuated by luscious raspberry. The base is dominated by with the gentle, earthy evocations of haitian vetiver.

Copal Azur - Eau de Parfum

$ 5.00

Mayan incense, rising from age-old temples. Lashes of sea spray and whiffs of the jungle where the jaguar lurks… Copal Azur exhales the lush, spiritual vibes of sacred Tulum.

The Muse: Copal, the Mayan incense

Strikingly similar to frankincense, copal, whose name means “incense” in Nahuatl, can be extracted from a variety of trees native to Central and South America. And much like frankincense in Ancient Egypt or Greece, it was burned by the Mayans and Aztecs to “feed” the gods. Today, it is still used in Mexico for spiritual purposes. 
Karl Bradl was drawn to its scent while cycling on the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula through copal-laced air towards the natural reserve of Sian Ka’an, which translates as “Gate to Heaven”. The suave cloud of burning copal whirling over Tulum's bohemian and eco-chic outdoor locales at the foot of an ancient Maya walled city, confirmed his inspiration for Copal Azur.

Just as the Mayan citadel looms over Tulum’s lush beachside paradise, a steep, mineral cliff of incense dominates the olfactory landscape of Copal Azur.

Since copal resin cannot be used as a perfume ingredient, three different extractions of frankincense are used to conjure it from top to base notes, making up an extravagant 30% of the formula.

The vibrant hues of the Mayan Riviera filter through milky, pine-scented wreaths of burning resin.

Blue, for the Caribbean Sea and the limpid depth of the cenotes, the subterranean fresh-water pools that riddle Yucatan: a cool breeze of ozonic and salty notes.

Green, for the lush Mexican jungles: a flash of cardamom glinting in the moist, woody undergrowth of patchouli and myrrh. 
White, for the purest quality of copal and the pristine beaches of Tulum: a lick of almond-scented tonka bean smoothed into creamy notes.

Amber for the Jaguar God of Terrestrial Fire – the fire that burns the sacred copal… Hypnotic, spiritual and forceful, Copal Azur might well indeed open the “Gate to Heaven”.

Volutes - Eau de Toilette

$ 4.00

An incredibly mild and honeyed tobacco envelops without losing any of its impact maintaining a beautiful ruggedness beneath its velvety suppleness. 

Intense and bold with accents of wax, honey, and dried fruit. This blend has resulted in an unparalleled tobacco fragrance from another period, one that makes you imagine the smoke from the Khediv’s cigarettes, packed in their box illustrated with a sphinx, palm trees, and fezzes. They rise up straight, with full-bodied top notes of fresh spices. Pink pepper, Madagascan pepper, and saffron allow them to lightly establish their velvety presence yet still remain reserved.

However, there is no superficial Orientalism or listlessness in these Volutes. They rise up straight, with full-bodied top notes of fresh spices. Pink pepper, Madagascan pepper, and saffron allow them to lightly establish their velvety presence yet still remain reserved.

 

  • TOP NOTES: Iris, honey, tobacco, dried fruit accord
  • MIDDLE NOTES: Pepper, saffron, hay, immortelle
  • BASE NOTES: Opoponax, myrrh, styrax, benzoin
