Byredo Bal D’afrique Hair Perfume

Hair perfume no doubt is an innovative way to apply perfume. Keeping in mind the latest trend of wearing hair perfumes I ordered Byredo – Bal D’afrique Hair Perfume ($62 for 75ml/2.5 fl. oz) and have been using it for more than three weeks now. After first week I was still confused about to review it so I gave it more time to come up with my real thoughts on it.

Bal d’Afrique is a warm and romantic vetiver inspired by Paris in the late 20’s and its infatuation with African culture, art, music and dance. A mix of Parisian avantgardism and African culture shaped a unique and vibrant expression. The intense life, the excess and euphoria is illustrated by Bal d’Afrique’s neroli, African marigold and Moroccan cedarwood.

Unfortunately scent doesn’t last whole day long on my hair but good for two to three hours, after that I couldn’t say how long the scent last. I wish this fragrance could last longer on my hair but that doesn’t make any difference in my love for Byredo – Bal D’afrique Hair Perfume because it leaves my hair with such a luxurious feel. If you are looking for a high-quality hair perfume and like woody fragrances, I highly recommend trying this one.fullsizeoutput_b3bIf you are buying Byredo Hair Perfume unseen, don’t expect a bigger size bottle (Picture above holding bottle in my hand will give you an idea of size). It comes in a travel size of 75 ml spray bottle for $62 (a bit pricey but worth it). It comes in 6 different fragrances include Bal D’Afrique ,Blanche, Flowrhead, Gypsy Water, La Tulipe and Mojave Ghost. If you already have a favorite in Byredo fragrance you have it as your hair perfume too OR if you want to try another one go ahead..

Byredo Blanche Hand Creme

fullsizeoutput_b48Who doesn’t want a good hand treatment and when it comes with the luxury of Byredo fragrance who wouldn’t love it. Byredo Blanch Hand Creme ( 30ml/1oz for $36) is no doubt another addition in my always favorite hand treatments. That classic woody fragrance takes me somewhere in my dreamland. As per Ben Graham notes:

The idea for Blanche is, as the name suggests, built around my perception of the colour white. For the first time I actually made a fragrance for and with a specific person in mind. I wanted to capture her innocent and untainted side, with a fragrance almost transparent in nature. Blanche also represents an appreciation for classic beauty. The fragrance is pure and simple in structure but extreme in character.” – Ben Gorham, founder
