Wazamba Eau de Parfum
The woody, resinous scent of sacred rituals.
For millennia, humankind has been sending fragrant messages to the gods. In WAZAMBA, the precious resins and woods burned in the sacred rituals of many different cultures are brought together: deeply resonant Somali incense, Kenyan myrrh, Ethiopian opoponax, Indian sandalwood and Moroccan cypress
Mystical and profound.
Resin, Somali incense, Myrrh, Opoponax, Sandalwood and Cypress.
This intense, powerful fragrance starts unfolding its mysteries with a soaring note of incense, the main axis of the composition, bolstered by aldehydes. Since ancient times, this noble resin from the land of Sheba has been offered to the gods who fed on its scent, a sublimation of earthly matter into pure beauty
WAZAMBA takes its name from a musical instrument, a type of sistrum used in West African rituals. Just as the deep, full sounds of percussion resonate during African initiation ceremonies, this mystical scent resonates with the intoxicating, resinous notes of myrrh, opoponax and incense.
Cypress, highly regarded by the Arabs and thought to be the tree of interior alchemy, weaves its green, earthy notes into the scent. Sandalwood wraps it in creaminess, conjuring India where its smoke is thought to purify the spirit and enhance meditation.
. WAZAMBAs long-lasting sillage blends the liquorice accents of myrrh, the warm fruitiness of fir balsam absolute and the forbidden-fruit note of apple, melting into burnt cistus labdanum.
