Product Description

Timbuktu is a totally original and vibrant perfume, inspired by a journey to Mali in West Africa by perfumer Betrand Duchaufour. A study of contrasts in its exotic African roots and innate French sophistication, Timbuktu takes inspiration from the fragrance ritual Wusulan used by generations of Malian women to scent their hair and skin. Potent blends of flower roots, balms and spices are thought to bring love and sensuality into the lives of these heavenly scented women. This takes perfumery back to its roots as the word perfume translates literally as per fumum or through smoke, offering up combinations of scented balms and resins to the gods above. Timbuktu has piquant notes of green mango and creamy karo-karoundé flower to balance the pink pepper, cardamom, and vetiver. Cloaked in smoke from papyrus wood, incense and patchouli, this sensual and airy scent is beautifully ancient yet profoundly modern.

5.0 out of 5 stars Africa in a Bottle <3 21 Aug 2011
By Moustafa Eid - Published on Amazon.com
Size Name:50 ml
For years I've searched high and low for a perfume that remotely resembled the fragrance worn by West African women that I work with. Whenever I ask them what they wear, I'm always told they burn an incense in their home which clings to their clothes, etc.

Today I found Timbuktu and it smells exactly like the gorgeous West African women I know. It's a wonderful combination of spices, woods, smoke, and powder. It's earthy, mysterious, and elegant. I will admit that at first it's a bit overwhelming, but if you give it a little time, it dries down into a true masterpiece.

This is the first time I've smelled fragrances from L'Artisan Parfumeur, and I'm completely impressed. No one could have created a fragrance like this without spending time within the Mali culture, and I have a true respect for that. I consider myself an Africanist and have *finally* found my signature scent. Thrilled!

pricey, but worth it. A gentle mix of smokey musk and bright tones, with extreme staying power. caution: not suitable for all skin types
