The inspiration behind Bal d'Afrique is Paris in the late 1920's, a period when the city was infatuated with a distinctive vision of African culture and art. Drawing on the exotic mix of the avant-garde and vibrance that fueled the artistic life of the city, Jerome Epinette created a fragrance embracing the fabulous Josephine Baker as his muse.
The vivacious blast of sunny citrusy scents with a pinch of spicy notes makes an euphoric opening, followed by a sheerly fresh bouquet of violet, jasmine and cyclamen. Earthy and spicy vetiver in the heart notes is complemented with sweet amber and warm musk until it becomes smooth and, velvety - almost edible.
Bal d'Afrique has woody closing, almost a musky touch, perfectly balanced with the warm amber, making this fragrance adorable, vivid, but mischievous and addictive at the same time.
