Timbuktu is a unique perfume that combines ancient mysticism with the profoundly modern. It takes inspiration from “Wusulan,” a ritual used by Malian women to scent their hair and skin. Flower roots, balms and spices are thought to bring love and sensuality. The smoky quality from papyrus wood, incense and patchouli pays tribute to the literal meaning of perfume: “Per fumum” or “through smoke”. Africa is evoked in the woody note of vetiver.

Top notes: pepper (rose/pink) and mango (green).
Heart notes: coffee bush flower, karo karounde.
Base notes: cumin, myrrh, patchouli, vetiver, musk, incense and vanilla.
