L’Artisan Parfumeur Timbuktu Dh465 for 100ml
Created by legendary French perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, this scent takes you on an African adventure all the way to Timbuktu. With notes of spicy green mango, pink pepper berries, papyrus wood, cardamom and karo-karoundé (a fragrant plant native to the Western coast of Africa) it’s a floral, herbal and spicy fragrance – capturing the essence of African earth. An avid traveller and lover of Africa, Duchaufour was inspired by local rituals and precious moments that enable a perfumer to capture the spirit of a particular time or place. “It can be travel, a very specific moment in a specific place, it can be a mood and the atmosphere of a place. It can be a monument, a landscape at a very specific moment. It can be a word; a very specific emotion,” he says.
