BYREDO – Kabuki Perfume – Bal d'Afrique
This product is currently sold out.
The word Kabuki historically refers to traditional Japanese theater.
A rich blend of music, dance, mime, and spectacular staging and costuming, Kabuki has been a major theatrical form in Japan for almost four centuries. There, the kabuki brush, was used to apply the white powder rice uniformly on the entire face.
In modern Japanese, the word is written with three characters: ka, signifying “song”; bu, “dance”; and ki, “skill.”
Inspired by the refinement of this extremely codified form of theatre and the traditional brushes used by Japanese actors to
apply their make-up, BYREDO has created a new perfume gesture
"A warm and romantic vetiver inspired by Paris in the late 1920s and its infatuation with African culture, art, music and dance. A mix of the 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."one
