About Eau de Kananga

Eau de Kananga is a feminine perfume by Rigaud.

Reviews of Eau de Kananga

Eau de Kananga is a lovely scent which I have been obsessed with for some time now--but sadly one of those gems that will never come back. It is light and soapy, similar to the Dunhill for Men (1934) though with far less leather and spice. Rigaud really should reintroduce this scent, I know I would purchase a case without hesitation.

Beautiful French Soap

Let me first say that Eau de Kananga is a brilliant but not mind-blowing scent. Eau de Kananga, at least the Rigaud version, is not a feminine fragrance and in reality a unisex if not exclusively masculine fragrance. Kananga, named for the Japanese ylang, is a leading example of old world refinement and minimalism. Kananga reminds me of a old French soap containing bracing lavender, deep and dark citrus, spice, and musk. That is exactly what Kananga is: an example of the soapy clean gentleman of the inter-war period. It, of  course, does not last long in likely an eau de cologne concentration with a good whack of natural ingredients. The French version of DR Harris's Arlington perhaps?

 

Mt guess as to the notes:

 

Lavender, lemon, bergamot, verbena

Carnation/clove, ylang, jasmine, neroli, orris, geranium

Musk

 

Note that the original formula for Kananga Water contained cassie and jonquil, though I do not really smell them here.
