Byredo has launched Bal d'Afrique, a new fragrance inspired by "Paris of 1920's, balls of Saint Germain and the style of Josephine Baker ..."
A warm and romantic vetiver inspired by Paris in the late 20's and its infatuation with African culture, art, music and dance. A mix of the Parisian avant gardism and African culture shaped a unique and vibrant expression. The intense life, the excess and euphoria is illustrated by Bal d'Afrique's neroli, African marigold and Moroccan cedarwood.
Additional notes feature lemon, bucchu, violet, jasmine, cyclamen, black amber and musk.
Other recent launches from Byredo: Fantastic Man.
