Afrika-Olifant fragrance notes

Reviews of Afrika-Olifant

A surprisingly fresh smoky incense fragrance with a hint of musky sweetness. Looking at the note breakdown you would be forgiven to think this scent is going to be beastly. But nothing could be farther from the truth.

The animalistic notes of civet and leather are well blended and well behaved behind the smoky incense.

All in all a very nice enigmatic smelling fragrance.

This is the best Nishane for me yet. This opens with a myrrh incense smoke. The animalic notes are there, just done in a modern way in which they don’t shout. There is a suede-like leather there in the dry down, but on me this ends up an oud scent. An eclectic array of notes blended very well! Thumbs up!

A herbal opening blast with myrrh, labdanum and an animallic undertone of castoreum and civet. A rich interesting and unusual start, and quite captivating. There is an element of old leather present and in the drydown a rich and deep olibanum is added that combines a nigh citrus-like brightness with a deep and complex raisinous undertone. Beautifully balancing the animalic with the frnakincense, the dark with the fresh and crisp. A delicious mix.

The drydown adds musky notes, and I get a pleasantly refreshing sharpness that reminds me of some of the more modern oak moss notes, with a good measure of musk thrown in. An wood component gives is a smoother edge.

The performance on my skin is splendid, with fairly strong sillage, excellent projection and eleven hours if longevity. A beautiful autumnal oriental-chypre dyad, where the synthetic notes are restrained and blend in very convincingly, whilst the whole olfactoric edifice is very well structured. A beautiful creation and arguable one of Nishanes finest, a masterpiece of JL. 4.25/5
