The problem (it seems to me) with complex smelling materials such as Safraleine is that they can all too easily become a vehicle for laziness. Underline the saffron-tobacco-hot pleather notes with some synthy woods, a little vanilla like sweetness and musks et voilà! A dark ‘leather’ perfume ready to sell to the next niche brand that comes a knocking.
