“The morning of a Nomad tale in the desert, from the Sahara to the Arabian Desert, waking up under the bright sky for a sweet breakfast after the night festivities.” Gourmand, Caramelized, Nutty, and Oriental Spicy.
Atmosphere The magical nomad tale of timeless night festivities, from the Sahara to the Arabian Desert, ending with a breathtaking sunrise before waking up under the bright sky for a sweet breakfast of coffee with dates. The bewitching scent of spices, Arabic pastries, and caramelized nuts still impregnating the lovers’ hair and bodies. This day version is a scent of great tenderness and charisma, softer and subtler than its night companion.
Notes The caramelized date-like sweetness of Omumgorwa married with the earthy freshness of Omumbiri resins from Namibia, are transported by the heavenly powdery scent of Lily, the soothing notes of Ambrette (Hibiscus) and the sensual ambiguous depth of Champaca undertones. Nutty Moka hints of Sapote and Coffee give this gourmand blend an almost maple-walnut ice-cream aroma, with a twist of Arabian Spices, arousing all the senses simultaneously.

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.
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, earthiness and citrus 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.
Ambrette (Hibiscus abelmoschus): The seeds from the tropical Hibiscus flower are known for their musk-like aroma. This plant has been almost wiped out of perfumery by the rise of cheaper synthetic musk. Its enigmatic aroma, also used in cooking and Ayurveda, is nevertheless unchallenged and its presence in a perfume cannot be unnoticed.
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 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.
Sapote (Pouteria sapota): An edible fruit indigenous to Central America and the Caribbean 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.
