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.
Love Ophir, it has a permanent place in my daily rotation.
Smells so good, just wish the scent stuck around a bit longer.
I would describe Ophir as rich and refined. Saffron and warm cake maybe. A little heavy for the Spring and Summer, for me it is my signature for the Autumn and Winter. It is unique; I have never smelled anything quite like it. I often layer scents, but this one I always wear on its own.
I’m gonna give it 5 stars still because the smell is so great, it’s my favourite scent ever. The only complaints I have are the spray thingy which has only been working half the time and doesn’t “spray”, it seems that it’s not the best quality. Also I wish the scent would last longer but I’m not angry about it. Overall great smelling scent and I will repurchase, I just hope they can fix the spray bottles.
I receive constant compliments whenever I wear Ophir. I hope that when I reply Ophir by Blackbird you get a new customer... At the least a visit!
