Bertrand Duchaufour's creative process follows two fundamental principals; firstly, he believes that balance is achieved when opposites attract, like yin and yang. Secondly, nothing is lost nor is created, everything is transformed. He distorts and deconstructs nature, playing with contrasts such as vegetal and animalic notes. Bertrand is a veteran perfumer for L'Artisan.
Timbuktu is a totally original and vibrant perfume, inspired by a journey to Mali in West Africa by perfumer Betrand Duchaufour. It is a study of contrasts in its exotic African roots and innate French sophistication. Notes of pink pepper, karo-karoundé and vetiver.
