Atmosphere A recreation of the explosion of scents in the hold of a pirate vessel: from the caramelized sweetness of Rum and Spices, to the enriched timber. A gourmand; a tantalizing, hypnotic, oriental potion for irresistible attraction.
Notes The caramelized sweetness of Martinique Rum, Vanilla, Cocoa, Honey, Beeswax, Muhuhu, Sandalwood and Tonka Bean is magnified by Mimosa, Patchouli and Mushrooms, culminating in sensory delights instilled by Lotus and Carnation. The aroma is uplifted by an unexpected creamy touch from the Australian Massoia Tree*, while freshly cut Berries, Opoponax and Spices sparkle in the undertones. *Except in the US version.
Closest olfactive family Oriental, Gourmand, Slightly Woody.

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 legislation 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.
Agarwood (Aquilaria agallocha): Reputed to be the most expensive wood in the world, Agarwood (Oudh in Arabic) is formed as a result of parasitic intervention on the tree. While the trees have become scarce, especially in India, thankfully replanting efforts have been successful. The Agarwood scent has been revered throughout the Orient since time immemorial, and used in Arabic perfumery as a signature scent. It is powerful and pervasive, with the tiniest amount being quite perceptible. Often reserved for male fragrances, NadiaZ ingeniously blends it to infuse women’s perfumes with mystery and character.
Muhuhu (Brachyleana hutchinsii): The Muhuhu tree, also called African Sandalwood, mainly grows along the Eastern African Coast and produces a rare indigenous oil. Its balsamic, woody and sweet aroma stimulates the practice of meditation and reduces stress.
Mushrooms: Nadia and her father personally collect edible wild Swiss mushrooms, some highly prized for their gustative properties and others which are largely ignored. She also procures them from continental Europe, among other places, to prepare exclusive extracts through her bespoke production techniques. Mushroom availability varies immensely between the seasons by and year, thus the proportion used in perfumes can vary.
Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin): Native to tropical regions in Asia, some of the finest productions of this herb are in Indonesia and Sri Lanka. Its quality differs greatly depending on the processing and maturing techniques used. NadiaZ uses patchouli for its fine, light, sweet yet hearthy aroma, blending so masterfully into the perfume composition that it is almost imperceptible.
Cocoa (Theobroma cacao): Rich in anti-aging polyphenols and theobromin, Cocoa helps maintain the skin’s collagen levels and is a mood enhancer.
Carnation (Dianthus cariophyllus):
Mimosa (Acacia decurrens): These puffy flowers, from Acacia trees, found from Africa to India to Australia, are reminiscent of a mother’s soft embrace, yet enigmatic and elusive. Honey-like with hints of wood and grass, this aroma magically reveals itself once every other scent wears off.
Massoia (Cryptocaria massoia): An indigenous tree from New Guinea, Massoia has been used for traditional ointments by Balinese women for centuries. The bark of the tree has a sweet creamy coconut-like aroma and is one of the very few natural sources of lactones, which are otherwise produced synthetically. The concentrated oil may be considered irritant for the skin, as is Cinnamon, and therefore legislation may vary between countries. NadiaZ Perfumes, however, uses it in very small concentration sand in a specifically designed oily substrate that reduces irritations. Its distinctive fragrance will reach in and awaken sweet emotions.
Rum: NadiaZ has carefully selected an extract to bring to this perfume the quintessence of pure sugar cane Martinican rum with woody-balsamic, fruity notes, aged to perfection. Even the faintest trace of this aroma provokes the mind to adventure to exotic destinations.
Tonka Bean (Dipteryx odorata): Native to Latin America, where they are mostly grown by rural households, Tonka beans have a magical vanilla-like, caramelized biscuit scent, prized in perfumery and gastronomy. They add an exquisite, unmistakable touch bringing new depths to a composition.
Beeswax (Apis mellifera): Made from honeycomb, beeswax absolute has honey, pollen and skin-like notes that confer it a subtle, soft, cocooning scent.
Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum): Sandalwood is prized for its rich, sweet, spiritual and woody scent. Used in traditional medicine and religious rituals for millennia, it has been brought to the verge of extinction
