The sun rises on the golden Savannah, a brief moment of sweetness is brought by a touch of bergamot and rhubarb. Then, a steam, far off, a powerful and sensual blend of Arabica coffee and Karmawood. Finally, its wild character reveals itself on the back of a grandiose landscape: The nobility of the sandalwood, the raw animality of the musks, the sweetness of the African vanilla… A distinguished fragrance with natural elegance.

Olibere Savannah’s Heart Extrait de Parfum 100ml

Top notes: Bergamot, Rhubarb, Ciste Labdanum
Middle notes: Coffe Arabica Pure Jungle Essence, Karmawood
Base notes: Sandalwood, Cashmerewood, Vanilla, Musks

So let’s share our opinion on the fragrance:

Jakub – Warm, comforting scent with huge longevity, term “Extrait” is completely justified! Beautiful rendition of dry woods, not too gourmand coffee and more oriental sandalwood/oud base. One of my absolute Olibere favourites, along with Escapade A Byzance and L’Etoile Noire. It was worth the wait!

Aleksandra – deliciously soft woody scent. Opens with something almost bitter, quickly followed by creamy coffee note broken interestingly by acideous rhubarb. Soon this delight is tempered with dry wood, probably Karmawood mentioned in the notes, which resembles cedar. Still, the milkiness of the first impression never fades out totally, and is finally reassured by a radiant, soft sandalwood note, making this perfume extremely nice to wear in the cold weather. What better thing than a nice shawl of african ambient in the midst of dark, north-European autumn?
