Introducing ‘1979’ - Zambesi’s first foray into fragrance.
Genderless and magnetic, Zambesi’s ‘1979’ is as complex as it is powerful. The scent exudes a darkness with a warm, earthy depth that magnificently collides with the sharp freshness of its top notes to create a fragrance that defies traditions.
Housed in a square glass bottle with a Zambesi-esque black lid, the parfum fragrance is timeless in its appeal. Curated by Zambesi and crafted in collaboration with New Zealand-based fragrance house, The Virtue, the gender-neutral scent is made using fragrance exclusively sourced from Grasse, France. For 1979, the fashion label and fragrance house came together to create a sultry and enigmatic scent with top notes of bitter almond and bergamot, heart notes of patchouli and vanilla, and base notes of vetiver and leather.
Zambesi founder and designer Elisabeth Findlay wanted to create a scent that embodies the Zambesi brand.
“More than a fragrance, 1979 is another textural layer to the Zambesi story. It translates how we feel, how we see, how we think. I love how emotionally connected we can be to a scent: the memories it conjures, the moments it sparks, and I hope Zambesi 1979 will become part of its wearers’ story.”
The parfum is a blend of essential oils, botanical extracts and 100% cruelty-free and ethically-derived ingredients. Available in 50ml, the unisex scent will be available from December 7th, 2023 at Zambesi stores, zambesistore.com & selected stockists for $275.00.
