Beautiful fragrance, but unfortunately not wearable for me as a man
Bal d'Afrique I recently received as a bottling with a purchase in the souk. I had not previously engaged with this fragrance, but at the weekend I tested Bal d'Afrique and must say I can understand the good reviews quite.
Bal d'Afrique smells fruity, green and delicately woody for me: the main notes here are: Bergamot, lemon, neroli, Tagetes, which after about 20 minutes are also accompanied by jasmine and violet. After about an hour, the base notes come through with cedar, vetiver, amber and musk. Unfortunately, Bal d'Afrique is only unisex to me after the base notes become stronger. Unfortunately, this only occurs after 3-4 hours. Therefore, I see Bal d'Afrique rather on women than on men.
The shelf life is unfortunately only average. After about 6 hours Bal d'Afrique is already almost gone. The silage is also rather weak. Bal d'Afrique is maximum on a half arm length perceptible, After about 3-4 hours already skin.
Bal d'Afrique is a great fragrance for women, but unfortunately not for me, but it must not all also be portable for men.
