“Oro. From the legendary Inca Gold and the Spanish Glory to the ardent Kruger Savanah and the Ethiopian Kingdom of Aksum, humankind’s connection to the Sun.” Honeylike, Floral Anisic, Powdery with a Citrus Zest.
Camino de Azahar Oro (Orange Blossom Flowers Alley in Gold). Man. Natural Perfume.
Atmosphere Humankind’s connection to the Sun, symbolized by pure Gold and the olfactive evocation of the landscapes and ages it has lived on unaltered. One generation, one kingdom, passes to the next. The Inca soil, roots, essences and exuberant tropical fruits from the archetypal primitive forest, the Spanish Glory with its emblematic Azahar flower and fragrant ancient cities, the mystical spices and resins purifying the Ethiopian Aksum holy sites or the Pharaohs Pyramids… and then finally all melts away under the incandescent African Sun bathing all living forms in the Kruger Savannah, embracing them all: the fire, the honey-scented flowers, the drying wood, the dust and the sweat. A drop of this perfume will bring you to meet your own splendor and share your light with the World.
Notes A very powerful and resplendent composition with an explosion of captivating sweet scented flowers such as Orange Blossom (Neroli), Lily, Champaca and Ylang Ylang melted in a caramelized heart of precious Namibian Omumbiri and Omumgorwa resins, African Yangu, Cape Verbena (Lippia Jivanica), Honey and Vanilla. The exuberant tropical fruits and nuts from the Amazon, Andiroba, Sapote harmoniously toned down by Wild Mushrooms, and Precious Woods in a pure symphony.

NadiaZ perfumes may contain 15-150 plants which bear unique active ingredients and interact with each other in NadiaZ holistic compositions. The featured plants are a selection of some of them for you to discover. Please check the menu NadiaZ Ingredients to learn more about the brand repertoire. NadiaZ is involved in research on the specific phytotherapeutic properties of indigenous plants, however perfumes enter in the cosmetic category and not in the medicinal one, which is why legislations do not make it possible to describe those on this website or the brand documentations. Feel free to google them or check on Wikipedia to get more information, or send an email for specific questions.
Omumgorwa Resin (Commiphora tenuipetiolata): Traditionally used as a perfume called Omove and as a soap by the Himba people in Namibia known for their reverence to beauty and the incredible skin care living under harsh weather conditions, this resin only forms after after a tree has died naturally and is thus sustainably harvested. Its smell, between candied date and freshly made caramel, is just amazing.
Omumbiri Resin (Commiphora wildii): Traditionally used as a perfume by the Himba people, this resin, unique to Namibia, is sustainably harvested by women. Its scent is unlike other myrrh due to its freshness, earthyness and citrussy hint.
Champaca (Michelia/Magnolia champaca): Known as a component of the most expensive perfume, the champaca tree, native from the Himalaya and belonging to the Magnolia family, it literally exudes what is perhaps the most sensual and pervasive of all scents. The species has become vulnerable in the wild; therefore NadiaZ only uses cultivated Champaca.
Lily (Lilium Golden Splendor and other varieties): The delicate nature of the Lily flower means that only the gentlest enfleurage technique, where fresh flowers are soaked in oil to render their aromatic components, can capture the true natural perfume of this heavenly flower. Finding such an enfleurage is extremery rare in modern days where synthetics have replaced most of the traditional natural techniques. NadiaZ therefore sources its lily enfleurage from small eco-friendly growers in America.
Cape Verbena (Lippia javanica): This indigenous plant is used as a local remedy. Never before has this exhilarating acidulated scent been proposed in a luxury perfume.
Sapote (Pouteria sapota): An edible fruit indigenous to Central America and the Carribean with a delicious oil bearing a distinctive aroma of bitter almonds with a tropical twist. Mostly used as a costly ingredient in hair care, it is yet unknown in perfumery until now thanks to NadiaZ’s groundbreaking techniques to capture it subtle gourmand scent.
Ximenia Oil (Ximenia americana): Also known as African Sour Plum and originating from the Southern Africa Savannahs, this oil has a unique honey-like consistency and is extremely moisturizing. It is an excellent fixative for perfumes, thus creating lasting aromas.
