Cavernous. Opulent. Gilded.
Egoli draws its name from the Zulu word for Johannesburg, meaning ‘place of gold’. It honours the city’s history and growth from a small gold mining settlement into the wealthiest city on the continent. Egoli is a modern exploration of Oud - the prized resin known as liquid gold - extravagantly dosed and in perfect harmony with the rich balsamic sweetness of resins.
Housed in a bottle inspired by gold gleaming from the rocks of the Witwatersrand region, Egoli creates an instant impression of golden light. Opening with a profusion of honey-like gurjum resin and glowing amber, set against a jolt of sweet orange. A soft and subtle touch of white floralcy extends this luminous sensation into the heart. Laotian Oud is explored in all its facets: intensely smoky, surprisingly fruity and animalic. An abundance of earthy vetiver and smooth cedar provide depth and form.
Egoli takes traditional materials and combines them in a contemporary way, resulting in a plush and glistening fragrance.
