Queen of Spices.
Golden, spicy-sweet, a perfume of extraordinary olfactory power.
I encourage any natural botanical perfumer to have a small bottle of saffron tincture at hand at all times, if for no other reason than to lift spirits and calm a damaged soul.
Like the whole spice, saffron tincture is vicious strong. Where a single thread can change a whole pot of rice, so can a single drop of saffron tincture change an entire perfume.
Blend saffron tincture with your reserved antique East Indian sandalwoods, or rose otto, or both. Save it for yourself. Savor it.
