I found my fall scent during my trip to Stockholm. Byredo’s Bal D’Afrique. It’s their top seller and rightfully so. Wore this with Frederic Malle’s Carnal Flower on my shopping jaunt in Ostermalm and felt as luxurious as my surroundings, though Bal D’Afrique is exquisite all on its own.
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 avantgardism 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.
