OUR IMPRESSION: Timbuktu is the scent of quiet moments and sacred spaces. An invigoratingly waxy start gives way to a calming, meditative incense heart. The overall effect is soothing and centering, with wafts of vetiver, woods, and spices emerging throughout the lifespan of the fragrance. 

THE BRAND SAYS: "Evocative of a perfumery ritual in Africa. The scent of smoky flowers, balms, spices and woods... 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."

NOTES: pink pepper, mango, cardamom, incense, papyrus, karo karounde, vetiver, myrhh, patchouli, benzoin

CONCENTRATION: Eau de Toilette
