This unique scent marks the first ever use of omumbiri, a desert resin (myrrh) sourced from the arid Kunene desert, that has been harvested for centuries by the nomadic Himba tribe in Namibia. Perfumer Tammy Frazer traveled to Namibia especially for the plant and says that: “Omumbiri smells like a sunset,” says Frazer with a smile. The fragrance is golden and honeyed, with nutty caramel toffee complemented by notes from the local Mopane tree resin. Light to start and warm throughout with a lasting amber trail.
This hand-crafted perfume is a sensory artwork inspired by her journeys to source unique botanicals and precious raw materials. Her fragrances capture the raw earthiness of Africa. Ms. Frazer stated that the climate and the untouched landscape make African scents unique and she would define the olfactive identity of South Africa as resinous.
Omumbiri is a natural perfume.
