"Byredo Parfums - Bal d'Afrique - Body Lotion" is a deeply personal and evocative skincare creation from Ben Gorham, the founder of Byredo. This body lotion is more than just a moisturizer; it's a tribute to the rich and vibrant spirit of Africa, inspired by Gorham’s personal connections and the continent's profound influence on various cultural expressions.

Bal d’Afrique is one of the earliest fragrances from Byredo, born out of Gorham’s fascination with translating memories into scent. This body lotion encapsulates an imaginary journey to Africa, inspired by the diaries of Gorham's father, who lived and traveled across the continent for about 10-15 years. The stories of his adventures, encounters with diverse people, and travels on freight ships formed the basis of this olfactory celebration.

BAL D’AFRIQUE is Gorham’s ‘love letter’ to Africa. It aims to encapsulate and celebrate Africa's extensive influence over time, especially in how its myriad cultures have shaped dance, art, and music. The concept of Bal d’Afrique revolves around the idea of an imaginary event, a festive and vibrant celebration of African culture and its impact.

The lotion is formulated to nourish and hydrate the skin, leaving it feeling soft, supple, and delicately perfumed. Its rich texture is quickly absorbed, providing comfort without a greasy residue. The scent of Bal d’Afrique in this body lotion is a manifestation of Gorham's vision, offering a unique and immersive sensory experience.

Please note that the cap color of the body lotion bottle may vary depending on availability. However, the enchanting scent and the high-quality formula remain the same, ensuring that each bottle delivers the same luxurious experience.

"Byredo Parfums - Bal d'Afrique - Body Lotion" is perfect for those who appreciate the art of perfumery and the stories behind fragrances. It's an invitation to embark on an olfactory journey, a celebration of African culture and its mesmerizing influence on the world. This body lotion is not just a skincare product; it's an ode to the beauty, richness, and diversity of Africa.
