Atmosphere The magical nomad tale of timeless night festivities, from the Sahara to the Arabian Desert, by the light of the stars. The air is filled with women’s laughter, darbuka rhythms and Ney music, and the bewitching scent of spices, Arabic pastries, dates and caramelized nuts impregnate the men and women’s luxurious dresses, hair, skin and even the breath of lovers. This night version is a scent with great character and charisma, more candied and wilder than its day companion.
Notes The caramelized date-like sweetness of Omumgorwa blended with the earthy freshness of Omumbiri resins from Namibia, are transported by the heavenly powdery scent of Lily, the tropical notes of Frangipani, and the sensual ambiguous depth of Champaca undertones. Nutty hints of Sapote 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 for its freshness, earthyness 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, literally exudes maybe the most sensual and pervasive of all scents. The specie have 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 rare in modern days where synthetics have replaced most of the traditional natural techniques, therefore NadiaZ sources its lily enfleurage from small eco-friendly growers in America.
Frangipani (Plumeria alba): The Frangipani tree is known as the ‘Tree of Life’ in India has been highly regarded for centuries for its healing powers. Its exotic buttery floral smell is romantic, sensual and truly captivating.
Sapote (Pouteria sapota): An edible fruit from the Dominican Republic and indigenous to Central America and the Caribbeans, its yummy oil bears a distinctive aroma of bitter almonds with a tropical twist. It is mostly used as a costly ingredient in hair care and yet unknown in perfumery, therefore NadiaZ have developed ways to capture it subtle gourmand scent.
