A vibrant woody floral inspired by ancient Malian rituals

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.

L’Artisan Parfumeur is one of the most unique and iconoclastic fragrance houses in the world. We work with imagination, exceptional raw materials and visionary perfumers to forge a distinctive alchemical vision, creating some of the most intriguing, singular and deeply personal scents of recent years.

L’Artisan Parfumeur was founded in Paris in 1976 by perfumer-chemist Jean Laporte and was one of the first of a movement of exclusive niche fragrance houses inspired by nature and a desire to do things a little differently. A combination of classicism, avant-garde fragrance creation, innovative collaborations and an insistence of the highest quality materials has created a body of original, sometimes shocking work. This blending of artisanal fragrance creation and contemporary artistic flair has captured the heart of fragrance aficionados looking for quality, craftsmanship and authenticity.

The iconic Mûre et Musc fragrance was created in 1978. A beautiful blend of blackberry and musk, its success was due to the witty and daring contrast in the structure between sparkling top notes and an enveloping warm evolution of the scent’s seductive development on the skin. The first of its kind on the market, it remains a global bestseller and set the benchmark for L'Artisan Parfumeur creativity. From our Grande Boutique in Paris opposite the Palais du Louvre, L’Artisan Parfumeur has expanded across the world, delighting and intriguing generations of perfume lovers with style, originality and that all important French je ne sais quoi.....
