Ophir opens as an opulent exotic sandalwood accord with its intense briskness immediately announcing that this is a sophisticated wood perfume. Suddenly a euphoric milky, nutty, spiciness of tonka bean, pistachio, hazelnut, and nutmeg show up to play a dangerous scent game living harmoniously alongside the woods, never fighting but always alert. Once the scent settles in, saffron becomes apparent with its unique notes of hay and metallic gold; this is when the secret is revealed that saffron is the true reason you’re wearing this fragrance. In the end, as the top notes fade, touches of rose, lavender, and black pepper energize for a final lap around the sandalwood.
My absolute favourite since trying it in a Brooklyn boutique a few years ago, I have to have this perfume in my life! Please open a store in Amsterdam :)
I absolutely love this scent. I'm a dude and have tried lots and lots of scents. Typically I'm a Tom Ford Eau de Toilette or Tom Ford Leather Ombre ... but I just like this more. In that same general genre but more distinctive. To me, I feel like a spicy campfire after wearing.
Bought my second bottle in four years, in love
Love Ophir, it has a permanent place in my daily rotation.
Smells so good, just wish the scent stuck around a bit longer.
