Saffron Oleoresin

Eleonora Scalseggi has this to say “At long last we are happy to announce we now offer a gorgeous Saffron Oleoresin. As you will be already aware, saffron is obtained from the tiny thread-like stigmas of the beautiful lilac Crocus sativus flowers. It goes without saying it takes a lot of work to produce a single kilo of saffron, making it the most valuable spice on the world market, whose value by weight is even greater than gold itself!

The oleoresin extracted from the spice can be therefore considered the very definition of luxury.

Perfectly pourable and of a cheerful deep sunset orange, this saffron oleoresin displays and magnifies all the most beautiful and powerful notes of the spice. This is a material of great richness and intensity, exuding tremendous warmth, gorgeous leather notes, sapid saltiness despite its light sweetness when smelled straight from the bottle. It imparts a sensuous natural skin effect to perfume compositions like few other materials can.

Unmissable for oriental-inspired perfumes but also used in trace amounts to impart sensuality and a fleeting je ne sais quoi to perfume compositions, this fairly tenacious material can be classed as a base note since it will mainly stay close to the skin.

Perfectly alcohol soluble and partly oil soluble, it is the luxury version of our alcohol based saffron tincture.”
