WEST AFRICA

L’Ar­ti­san Par­fumeur Tim­buktu Dh465 for 100ml

Friday - - Beauty -

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.
