WIN a bottle of the New Men's Fragrance, Menelik!
18 December 2012

Truth be told, I am a huge fan of supporting locally manufactured goods, especially at this time of year. As soon as I heard about Menelik, I knew I had to get my Proudly South African paws on it. The men's fragrance is new to the SA market and is uniquely produced, manufactured, and distributed solely in Africa. It's named after an ancient African king, who, legend has it, was the son of King Solomon and Queen Sheba of Ethiopia.


Founder of and nose behind the Menelik brand, Lionel Shaw, has been involved in the SA fashion industry for years (yes, ladies... He's a hottie) and wanted to create a definitive African fragrance brand, collaborating with the world's oldest perfume company - Charabot in France - in order to do so. The scent is weak-at-the-knees stuff with a deep, woody-spicy scent.

Menelik is currently available to purchase on Zando but, as a Christmas pressie to a lucky someone, I am giving away a bottle.

To qualify, just tweet this: Yo @KirstyBisset! A bottle of #Menelik would smell great under my Christmas tree this year!

Good luck!
