Enjoy the uplifting power of long lasting scents as they subtly diffuse throughout the day, amplified by the natural movement of the hair. Each hair perfume combines one of BYREDO’s signature scents with a unique silicone and polymer formula to create a light, invisible veil designed to leave the hair nourished and luminous whilst divinely scented.
Bal d’Afrique is inspired by Paris in the late 1920’s, when the city was infatuated with an idiosyncratic and fantastical vision of African culture, music and dance. A vivacious blast of sunny citrus with just a pinch of spicy marigold makes a suitably dramatic entrance, leading to a brew of green bucchu, sheer and aqueous cyclamen and sweet violet. At center stage is the ever-bewitching vetiver, earthy and spicy, and smoothed with sweet amber and warm musk until it becomes velvety and almost edible. An extra soupçon of growl is provided by cedar wood, but the overall effect is less voracious man-eating tiger and more of a mischievous tiger cub ? sweet and adorable, but it still has claws. Bal d’Afrique is warm and embracing with a purring, cozy quality that has us at its mercy. Be careful, this one is addictive.
