Product Description

Size: 100 ml

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.

Lovely, wonderful, fragrance from designer perfumier Bertand Duchaufour, renowned for his travels resourcing exotic ingredients. It came out in 2004.

This time, he went to Mali and concocted an amazing scent based on ancient ingredients, such as myrrh, and natural local fruit and spices, such as ginger, nuts, black pepper and spices, all in the age old quest to cast a spell on the opposite sex.

This oriental class scent would work for either sex. However, it is so sensuous, it might best be reserved for evening wear.

It smells of just-got-out of the bath soapiness, or even new handbags.

It is masculine, animal and very sexy. It is absolutely gorgeous.

My rating is 7.9 out of 10.

I think this is stunning. I've worn it for getting on for a decade and it still lifts my spirits. It is woody and spicy, with a lingering note of incense and with a reasonable but not exceptional longevity. I would have thought suitable for both men and women. Very distinctive.

This is a very sensual and evocative scent heavy with spices, leather and animalic scents. Bursts of clove, cinnamon, black pepper with ginger and cardamon could smell like rich Christmas cake but the animalic scents of leather and moss make it smell like the leather jacket of an incredibly sexy rugged man- think Dean Winchester from Supernatural if you like.
This could be compared to a deeper sexier Aramis or Opium for men, so it isn't light nor fresh, this scent packs a very manly pheromone punch.
It dries down to a pink pepper spicy leathery musk that kept me grabbing my husband's neck to keep getting a noseful which he was very happy about.
Overall a very masculine ruggedly sexy scent with animalic tones that definitely had an effect on this woman, this is so worth the price.
