African Dawn – Eau de Parfum

In designing African Dawn I wanted to capture the essence of Africa, using only the beautiful African essences. The perfume opens with the fresh herbal notes of Blue Grass and Cape May that mellows into a heart of the Comorian Ylang Ylang, Egyptian Jasmin and Moroccan Rose, spiced with Coriander, Cinnamon, Cloves and Buchu.


Van der Hum – Eau de Parfum

Van Der Hum has an aged brandy aroma, flavoured with the peel of Naartjies (Cape tangerines), herbs, spices, seeds and barks, with a deep golden amber base. The complex citrus flavours are enhanced by fragrant spicy and oak notes. Mellow and sweet, with a lingering spicy drydown.


Apollo – Huile de Parfum

Apollo is a refreshing and uplifting masculine fragrance that uplifts the spirit with notes of citrus and Frankincense delicately blended with hints of spices and woods. It is a great all-purpose fragrance for a man or perhaps even for the adventurous woman.


Iris – Huile de Parfum

Iris is a soft feminine fragrance of romantic florals, gently blended with citrus, Patchouli and Sandalwood, with a hint of ginger. It is smooth, alluring and just a little mysterious. The romantic at heart will enjoy an evening out adorned with this perfume.


Aurora – Eau de Parfum

Aurora was created for my daughter who has a penchant for gourmand perfumes. It is a perfume that celebrates the sensual delights of chocolate. It is a rich nutty blend of dark chocolate and honey blossoms. It will delight all chocolate lovers.
