The first thing to notice about Kalahari Extreme is the lavish packaging. The fragrance bottle is housed in a gorgeous white box with a beautiful print in orange inside. The colour story compliments the perfume so much and looks very special, just like the fragrance itself. Just like other bottles from this house, this bottle also has an eye-catching weighty lid depicting an ouroboros, an ancient symbol of the snake biting its tail to signify endless regeneration.
