The Campaign

who i am
is where i am from

William Shakespeare famously wrote:

This above all: To thine own self be true

A beautifully phrased message that invokes ideas
with positive connotations: truth, self-ownership, individuality.

Who I am is Where I am from

echoes the same message of remaining true to ourselves,
even when we have achieved success at an international level
we always remember that

where we come from represents who we are,

a principle that should not be taken for granted.

The Scent of Africa brand was created
to celebrate the most iconic of all continents.

It is a beacon of a new future,
its heart beats with excitement and honour.
Scent of Africa celebrates success.

This inspired the creation for the ideal packaging
to house the distilled essence.
The packaging that is AFRICA.

scent of africa

the name

Without a moment of hesitation, Ghandour Cosmetics immediately knew
that Scent of Africa is not just a label, but a feeling.
There could have not been a more suitable name for the perfumes.

Whether said as a bold exclamation or as a whispered purr,
proudly saying “Scent of Africa” reveals your zest
for living in the moment, for building a new destiny
and for proclaiming a deep love for the African continent
and its people. This passion is unlike any other.


The packaging

Africa’s instantly recognisable and iconic shape is created
through geometric lines with a classic yet modern richness.
Scent of Africa, boldly and unapologetically, marks
out a symbol of pride and strength depicting the future
of a continent brimming with possibilities.

The Gold colour of Scent of Africa for Woman, illustrates
the magnetism of today’s African woman
while the Silver colour of Scent of Africa for Man,
represents the modern African gentleman.
