Our Signature


Definition: a distinctive pattern, product, or characteristic by which someone or something can be identified.

The olfactive signature of Afrikin products echo the duality of the southernmost tip of Africa: the merging of the cool Atlantic and warm Indian oceans, and the unique flora that this creates.  Developed specifically for us by House of Gozdawa Perfumery in Cape Town, it is blended from all-natural oils and no artificial or chemical agents, to allow for an incomparable depth and an individual experience for the wearer, which synthetic fragrances simply cannot cultivate.

Blending floral notes of indigenous African flowers such as Rock Rose and Pelargonium with the woody notes of Artemisia Afra, the fragrance elevates one’s sense of wellbeing, conjuring the feeling of a sweet and cool walk through the Cape mountains: shaded valleys and outcrops of light, the perfume of fynbos that lingers long after… Pure escapism.
