Great smell

This is a very distinctive smell! It changes every time I smell it. It is a unisex scent to me. It is fabulous in room spray , perfumes and wax!

Wow! So complex!

What sets this scent apart is its versatility. Whether you wear it as a perfume (10-13%), use it in soap (1%), or indulge in a luxurious body butter (0,5%), it adapts to every occasion with ease. It's universal, yet deeply personal, making it a favorite for both myself and my dad (and my male clientele). But perhaps the most remarkable thing about African King is how it evolves on the skin. As it dries down, it reveals new layers of complexity, each more enchanting than the last. It's like experiencing a different fragrance every time you wear it—a true testament to its complexity and artistry. WOW!

Best Seller!

This is one of 2 fragrances in perfumes that I literally cannot keep in stock! (Top Shelf Speakeasy being the other) I did try it in soap and liked it, but the scent was a little light for me. It's a powerhouse in perfume though and people really love it. Thank you, Simbi, for making such quality products!

Ok, I get it...

I've never smelled the original, but after getting this, I fully understand the hype. It's dark and deep and sensual, and absolutely incredible for a unisex perfume/cologne. I surprisingly prefer this one in an oil-based perfume compared to alcohol. It somehow opens the scent a little deeper, to my nose.
Exceptional at 20% in fractionated coconut oil. Definitely recommend.

Perfect masculine pick for your line!

OMG!! I see what the hype is all about! My husband loves this fragrance. I’ve made it into candles, but he asked if I could make him a rollerball perfume! It’s very earthy, smokey, with the perfect amount of floral with marigolds too soften it! It’s absolutely perfection!
