Saffron is a spice that is grown from the Crocus sativus flower. Crocus is a genus in the Iridaceae family, the Iris family of flowers. Saffron is the dried stigmas, or threads, of the purple Crocus flower.
Native to Greece and Southwest Asia, saffron is largely cultivated today in Iran, Spain, Greece, and India. Saffron from Spain’s La Mancha region is considered among the finest in the world.
In ancient times and today, saffron is used medicinally, in cooking, in dying fabrics, and in perfumery. The Egyptian queen Cleopatra is said to have used saffron in her baths to increase pleasure in lovemaking.
Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world because it must be harvested by hand and requires more than 75,000 threads from the Crocus flower to equal one pound of it. High demand and limited production add to its high cost.
Saffron’s scent profile is leathery, sensual, and earthy. It is aromatic, warm, and a touch bittersweet. Saffron is an incredibly desirable note in perfumery and makes some of the best fragrances for women and men.
The warmth of saffron is a force to be reckoned with in perfumery.
