To become a perfumer is a path that Di was on long before she had the vision to create a fragrance that truly captures the spirit of Africa. However, once all the pieces fell into place she created Dimanzi – and you can read the first piece I wrote here.

I first used the tester I received at an event and when my husband complimented me on the fragrance I knew I had to find out more. I met Di Thompson a few weeks ago because I was intrigued to find out why she created her very own fragrance and what it represents to her.

You would be surprised to find out that Di is from the family whom the Burchell Zebra was named after; the essential oils in the fragrance is from Grasse in France; and the Zebra beads made by local women in Natal.

Read her story on An interview with entrepreneur Di Thompson, Dimanzi.

Dimanzi Eau De Parfum

The vessel of this truly beautiful fragrance was selected by the Di because of its beauty but also because it is a D for Dimanzi. Add to this the multifaceted top that reflects light and a glass bead with zebra stripes, handmade in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands, tied to the top with a black ribbon in a nod to Coco Chanel.

Uncapping the bottle is to release a floral rainbow with fresh and woody notes.
