Bal d'Afrique is a warm, slightly spicy, woody fragrance. The fragrance has notes of bergamot, lemon, neroli, marigold, violet, jasmine, cyclamen, amber, musk, vetiver, and cedarwood. I love this fragrance as a hair perfume, as it makes my hair smell great and lasts a long time. I don't wear other perfume when wearing this hair perfume, as it will compete with other scents. It is by no means a light fragrance; in fact, it is fairly strong. The initial spray starts off slightly citrusy, due to the bergamot and neroli; however, it quickly turns into a warm, woody fragrance with strong notes of vetiver. Bal d'Afrique is a true unisex scent- it's not too feminine or masculine. If you're looking for a high-quality hair perfume and like woody fragrances, I highly recommend trying this one!
