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.
A change of hands to a skilled family of perfumers with over 100 years of expertise marks a new chapter in the history of L’Artisan Parfumeur. With this new beginning comes a fresh perspectivea return to the brand’s roots. This new vision is fuelled by the desire to allow the iconic heritage of the brand to flourish though love of nature and the new, as well as by a reverence for Jean Laporte’s original passion for perfume.
