"Bal d'Afrique is one of my first compositions. During its development, I became obsessed with the idea of translating memories into scents. At the same time, I felt confident enough to include an imaginary component. My father lived and traveled for about 10-15 years in Africa, I read his diaries, the way he traveled on cargo ships, the way he met all kinds of people... For me it was the idea of arriving in Africa myself through the words of another person Bal d'Afrique reflects that; it's an imaginary journey and at the same time a holistic celebration of how I view African culture and its influence." - Ben Gorham, Creative Director of BYREDO.
With an emphasis on beauty and fantasy, Bal d'Afrique is Ben Gorham's "love letter" to Africa. Desiring to celebrate the reach and influence of Africa over time, particularly the ways its myriad cultures have shaped dance, art and music, the idea of an imaginary event. Bal d'Afrique evokes this emotionality with notes of neroli, tagetes and Moroccan cedar.

Born in Sweden to an Indian mother and Canadian father, Ben grew up in Toronto, New York and Stockholm. He graduated from Stockholm Art School with a degree in Fine Arts, but a chance encounter with perfumer Pierre Wulff convinced him that he wanted to create fragrances rather than paintings. With no formal training in the field, Gorham, aged 31, sought the services of world-renowned perfumers Olivia Giacobetti and Jerome Epinette, explaining his olfactory desires to them and letting them create the compositions. As an outsider in the beauty industry, Ben is something of an anomaly and has been featured in several international magazines such as French Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle, V Magazine and Fantastic Man to name a few for his personal style and connection to fashion and art , accepted.
