To Timbuktu

Africa...The Motherland.

We are travelers at heart and are inspired daily by many things at C.A. Camp & Sannino.  
Behold Timbuktu:
A real place indeed, but also a fragrance that was "inspired by a journey to Mali in West Africa by perfumer Betrand Duchaufour. A study of contrasts in its exotic African roots and innate French sophistication."  You can find Timbuktu at 
C.A. Camp & Sannino; it's Carlin's favorite...

Timbuktu takes inspiration from the fragrance ritual Wusulan used by generations of Malian women to scent their hair and skin. Potent blends of flower roots, balms and spices are thought to bring love and sensuality into the lives of these heavenly scented women. This takes perfumery back to its roots as the word perfume translates literally as per fumum or through smoke, offering up combinations of scented balms and resins to the gods above. Timbuktu has piquant notes of green mango and creamy karo-karound√© flower to balance the pink pepper, cardamom, and vetiver. Cloaked in smoke from papyrus wood, incense and patchouli, this sensual and airy scent is beautifully ancient yet profoundly modern. 

Easy travel to faraway places is made easier with good luggage.  Only the best will do -- Libeco.

 Lovely place to stay:  La Maison

There Are Houses....

....and then there are 

Who doesn't love a house wrapped around a tree?

What does one wear while lounging the day away in a treehouse? 
We wear LIBECO fine linen!
