Inspired by Paris in the late 20’s, Byredo’s Bal D’Afrique is a scent based on the infatuation with African culture, art, music and dance. Originally created in 2009, Bal D’Afrique has had a rebirth in a travel friendly format. Byredo have released three pocket sized refillable bottles accompanied by a leather case with magnetic cap.

“A mix of the Parisian avantgardism and African culture shaped a unique and vibrant expression”

The almost bullet like vials conjure up classic image of a Hunter on Safari, highlighting Byredo’s unerring focus on creating the complete picture, despite it being a fragrance.
