- Black Saffron
Byredo presents its Black Saffron collectior collection with 4 new fragranced products: body wash, body lotion, body cream, and hand cream. With its beautiful, intense golden-orange colour and hay-like scent, Saffron has been used as a seasoning, dye, medicine and fragrance. It was brought to Kashmir by the Persians in the 11th/12th century AD and its use and cultivation spread quickly throughout the country.
“Saffron has always been a part of my Indian upbringing both in smell, taste and colour. It is holy to all Hindus, is the colour of Buddhist robes and has become a symbol for India. Black Saffron is inspired by this very idea of sublime unity. I have grown to understand more about my heritage and this fragrance is very much about that process.” Ben Gorham, Founder and Creative Director of BYREDO
