Ben Gorham wanted to create an interpretation of a warm and romantic vetiver, a mix of Parisian modernity and African culture.
A dynamic and unique perfume in its expression and statement that reflects the euphoria and excessive lifestyle of the time in all its intensity.
The top notes, citric and unknown, lead to a very pleasant and flattering heart that extends into the deepest base notes.
An airy, aromatic and indefinable spiciness in harmony with floral notes supported by a slightly woody and amber warmth and accompanied by a subtle and sweet smoky vetiver.
The inspiration for this unusual and atypical fragrance based on vetiver is Paris in the late twenties, for its affinity for African art and culture and its enthusiasm for African music and dance.
Bal d’Afrique is more an aura than a perfume that deepens and balances exotic promises and acquired familiarity in a truly exceptional way.
