Timbuktu is a modern French spin on an ancient West African perfume rite. Inspired by his travels to Mali, master perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour returned to L'Artisan enchanted by the mystical perfume art, called Wusulan, still handed down from mother to daughter as a magical spell to seduce and secure one's true love. The rind-like green scent of unripe mango, pink pepper berries, and cardamom are among Timbuktu's first offerings, followed quickly by a clean and purifying white smoke. As Timbuktu goes on, the earthy and green notes of vetiver combine with the clean incense and karo karounde flower, lingering beautifully on the skin as a fresh and unique interpretation of nature and fragrant, erotic ritual.
Timbuktu by L'Artisan Parfumeur is a Woody Chypre fragrance for women and men. Timbuktu was launched in 2004. The nose behind this fragrance is Bertrand Duchaufour.
