Let yourself be engulfed in a combination of Parisian avant-garde and African culture, through an unexpectedly charming fragrance composition. The unisex Eau de Parfum Byredo Bal D’Afrique rewrites the normally sharp aroma of vetiver as a romantic and carefree scent, creating a new addiction that you don’t have to give up.

  • a citrusy, woody, slightly sweet fragrance
  • develops beautifully in warm weather
  • attractive and blends like a second skin

Composition of the fragrance
The top notes of the fragrance composition are dominated by sparkling notes of bergamot in perfect harmony with floral notes of marigold and the buchu plant. A powdery softness is brought to the composition by violet flower, cyclamen and jasmine. The sharp edges of vetiver are smoothed off by soft white musk, amber and cedarwood.

Story of the fragrance
The Byredo Bal D’Afrique Eau de Parfum is a fragrance inspired by Paris in the 1920s, which was fascinated by African art and the rhythms of its music and dance. African influences blended into the culture of the French avant-garde and this connection led to colourful, unbridled artistic expression.

Byredo, a Swedish brand of distinctive niche perfumes, is the brainchild of the highly unique Ben Gorham, the son of an Indian mother and a Canadian father. Growing up in Toronto, New York, and Stockholm, he studied art, but a chance meeting with perfumer Pierre Wulff convinced him to focus on creating fragrances instead of painting.

He was inspired by memories of a trip to his mother’s hometown in India, where he discovered a love for the aroma of spices and incense. He linked these oriental scents with Nordic minimalism and, with the motto “less is sometimes more”, he captures his Scandinavian roots. In 2006, he founded one of the most progressive niche perfume brands today.

Diptyque fragrances are distinguished by pure and simple compositions that perfectly highlight individual ingredients. Byredo perfumes are as exceptional as their creator. Envelop yourself in modern, minimalist, yet distinctive fragrances.
