A warm and romantic vetiver inspired by Paris in the late 1920’s and its infatuation with African culture, art, music and dance. A mix of Parisian avantegardism 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 cedar. Marigold is at the fore of this cultural revolution; as it swings into song at the start of Bal d’Afrique, its music is light, acidic and spicy, a floral that eschews traditional feminine daintiness and displays a bolder, more exciting standard. Bergamot is sunny support to marigold, its juicy zest effortlessly meshing with the highly aromatic intensity of buchu. Lemon and neroli mark an elegant transition from the proud, statement-making style of marigold into the subtler heart of this scent: cyclamen belies the sinuous splendor of art deco design, jasmine petals illustrate the determined yet delicate illustrations of sensuous bodies at play, and violet is all wink, air-kiss and slink. A dark yet luminous base of shimmering black amber, aerating Moroccan cedarwood, downy musk and sparkling vetiver nail this scent to the firmament--of fragrance classics. Vetiver shines brightly beneath all the dancing notes that have preceded it, an emerald-jade flash of jewel like eyes daring us to break with tradition and join the avantgard. Bal d’Afrique is a scent that dares the wearer to bare your soul.
