African Magic

Regular price $62.99

Tax included.

The sun sets on the Serengeti, and the animal kingdom begins to settle in for the night. The calming warmth of the earth radiates towards the sky, and the ambiance crackles with latent majesty and power, resting but ready to erupt, simmering beneath the surface. African Magic caresses your senses with this same subdued raw energy, a tapestry of rich leather aromas expertly woven together with sweet cardamom and an earthy saffron-and-vetiver blend, spiced with cumin and patchouli. It is the smell of opulence, mouth-watering and sensuous, dark and yet somehow gentle. It is the scent of self-possession and assurance. Our customers are regularly choosing African Magic over Memo Paris's African Leather!

Love it as always

Now that I’m buying this again since I never want to run out, I noticed it smells like Au Coeur Du Desert from Tauer lol. I guess Tauer’s hit must smell like African leather. Regardless, this is always excellent. Yes it’s best suited for fall and winter, but since it smells like the cardamom tea with saffron I’ll use it all year. Excellent smell and this thang last!!’

Tipo duro y elegante

Siempre es importante tener referencias en español... Empezamos.

African Magic, es una fragrancia exquisita. Inicia fresco cítrico y floral, con importante acompañamiento del cardomomo, de inicio es una fragancia con importante proyección. En el corazón, se empieza a introducir poco a poco el cuero, el cuero no es para nada protagonista, es un liezo, sobre el cual se plasman el resto de acordes. Es un cuero que en un inicio es salvaje, pero pronto, notas que se trata como un cuero de alta calidad, como un abrigo de cuero caro, fino, dulce.

Lo importante radica en las especias, el cardomomo y comino, aportan una masculinidad sin precedentes con el pachuli. Pero el geranio, le da ese balance unisex junto al azafrán. Ya al fondo, se nota el almizcle, madera de oud (oscura, dulce).

Me parece más masculina, para todo un alfa, un tipo rudo, pero, que es elegante, es decir, un hombre decidido, seductor, que se sabe alfa, pero se comporta con muy buenos modales... carismático, enigmático, nocturno y sensual.

African Magic

I have never put my nose to the original African Leather from Memo, but it doesn't matter because this fragrance smells amazing: Spicy, exotic, leathery and intense. And, it projects like a monster and lasts forever too.

Amazing spicy scent - love it

This is a fantastic recreation of African Leather. Cumin is a note that when well blended can be very pleasing. When it isn't, though, it can at best make a fragrance too food-like and at worst can give off a BO smell. Thankfully, the note is very well blended here along with the cardamom and saffron, and the three give this such a unique spin on a leather fragrance. On my skin it starts off with a blast of cardamom, cumin, saffron, and bergamot. After about 10 minutes those notes quiet down, giving way to the leather, vetiver, and geranium, with the patchouli, oud, and musk coming out further into the drydown. The spices are present throughout the entire life of the fragranceThis thing evolves beautifully on skin. Definitely great in the cooler weather, but I think this could work well in the heat as well. Highly recommend for someone looking for a warm and spicy take on leather.

Stunning once again

This is my second bottle of this juice. I won’t lie this is my signature scent year around now. I love it became the leather and cardamom mixed with the spices makes me feel like a Pharaoh foreal lol! I always have to have this in my rotation.
