Here's what other people are saying about Afrika-Olifant...
One of the most distinctive and weird openings ever-- a huge blast of every fruit, spice, and resin you could find in an arabian bazaar blowing up at once. Has many bitter notes that I would not normally like, but the whole thing is one of those experiences that you have to try to understand. Just genius!

I read one reviewer say the opening of this was challenging. It is sublime and exotic. I don't get dirt. I get sexiness, maybe that's what people mean by rubber but that's not what I'm smelling. I mean if I search for rubber I can find it, but for me there is undertone of floral sweetness, just a drop for balance. Animalic properties but all constrained with true deftness. Fur that doesn't knock you over the head. A citrus that is maybe grapefruit but again so well cheated that you can't say for certain. I wish I could afford a full bottle right now. What an impressive blending the citrus and musk, the wood, the entire mixology of it is godhead. BOTTLE worthy, genius.

A very interesting modern aromatic/animalic/leather. Pleasant and haunting. the description above describes it perfectly: really no pyramid unfoldment as such, just a warm study in animalic leathery balsamic impressions. Never funky, oleaginous, headshoppy or skanky... just glowing and comfortable with a diffusive aromatic, woody airiness, with modern ambergris spotlighted. Perhaps it could be more nuanced, surprising and detailed, yet its simple self-evidence is probably what will be winning about it to many. Easily unisex.

A genuine masterpiece! Powerful and explosive in nature, with equal parts sweet myrrh and spice, and bitter- sour notes that keep you interested in what it has to say. I don't get the rubber notes that others mention, which is good. Not a scent for everyday wear, something to wow friends and dates. A must have for serious students.

If you giggled maniacally the first time you tried Bulgari Black, stop reading and proceed immediately to the Buy button. This is a glorious rubber-leather-licorice-salt rumble -- very much a Black with dirt under its fingernails -- that warms and reconstructs itself as the drydown progresses. It ends up as an approachable leather with some nice green around the edges and a clean-dirt earthiness. All hail a gentle giant.
