Buchu is native to South Africa. The indigenous people of South Africa used buchu leaves for hundreds of years.
Buchu is one of these plants who have a very animalic smell, which always indicates strong hormonal properties.
It is a very fresh and balsamic scent with a strong note of cat urine.
Strangely, the women who like its smell, and they are much more than one could think, do not perceive the urinary aspect of the essence but only its fresh and balsamic notes.
The ladies who appreciate this fragrance probably do so due to some hormonal dysfunction (your nose is your doctor) to a tendency to develop problems with the urogenital apparatus.
