Timbuktu Eau de Toilette

DESCRIPTION

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..

ABOUT the MAKER

L'Artisan Parfumeur

Founded in Paris by perfumer-chemist Jean Laporte in 1976, L'Artisan Parfumeur was in the very first wave of what we now know as 'niche' perfume houses. 

L'Artisan Parfumeur was born of the French tradition of the Art-of-Fragrance, inspired by nature. With an avant-garde spirit and touch of alchemy, L'Artisan Parfumeur worked from the outset with the highest quality materials, forging them into the most original, and sometimes shocking, compositions. 

The brand continues to capture the hearts of a band of true fragrance aficionados, who are looking for quality, craftsmanship, and authenticity.
