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 perspective; a return to the brand's roots fueled by the desire to allow its iconic heritage to flourish, and to reveal its love of nature and the new, as well as Jean Laporte's original passion for perfume. A pioneering spirit with a contemporary vision that has endured for 40 years, L'Artisan Parfumeur is a contrasting celebration of both the classic and the modern.
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.
