I was rummaging through my samples writing down which should be reviewed first based on the weather getting warmer these days. Luckily, I have only three that I would consider being too rich and deep for the spring season. between those and the ones proper for spring was Midnight Saffron by Tom Daxon. I had no idea which side it should be on, but I am missing oh so much Gris Clair by Serge Lutens that I needed to try this solely based on the fact that it had lavender in it, like Gris Clair.

I am back to basics when reviewing fragrances. First, I spray it on a paper piece to get the notes without my skin interfering. Only after, do I try it with my chemistry.

Midnight Saffron opens with a strong and nostalgic note of lavender. Something richer is just as much in the forefront. Saffron. Deepening and warming up the aromatic lavender. This fragrance is nothing I would chose to wear, but it is beautiful. Just like Gris Clair, I am surprised how wearable lavender is as a fragrance. For years I have been keeping lavender for sleepless nights, only spraying it in the bedroom for a calming atmosphere.

Before even spraying Midnight Saffron on my skin, I must say that it is slightly headache inducing after a while and I am scared for what's in store for me.

On skin, Midnight Saffron is just as rich in lavender as it is on paper, but it has a deep sweetness from the get go. The sweetness is very true to the suede in the composition and is nothing like the fragrances I have in my collection. That being said, I would never add a fragrance like this to my collection. It is far too barber shop like and there is not enough creaminess for me to make it wearable. And yes, on skin, it has provoked a thumping headache. So much so that I had to wash it off. The paper sample, now at the other end of the dining table, makes the headache persistent and Midnight Saffron becomes a very short acquaintance. Hours later, the fragrance is very masculine and sexy, yet potentially headache inducing and the next day, the paper strip has a wonderful sweetness and depth about it that I wish was the initial Midnight Saffron.

Tranquil combination of saffron and lavender. A kind of aromatherapy. Warm. Happy.
