Vi feirer i år 10 år med den ikoniske duften Bal d'Afrique.
“Bal d’Afrique is one of my earliest fragrances. At the time of its
formulation, I was obsessed with the translation of memories into scent.
At the same time, I felt confident enough to include an imaginary component.
My father lived and travelled in Africa for about 10-15 years.
I would read his diaries; the way he travelled on freight ships,
met all kinds of different people,… For me, this was the fantasy
of arriving in Africa through somebody else’s words.
Bal d’Afrique reflects that; it’s an imaginary journey as well
as a complete celebration of how I see African culture and its influence."
