As a 10-year devotee of Bal D'Afrique, I was keen to give this interpretation a try (esp as a 100ml bottle of Bal D'Afrique is now pushing $400!!). Its actually a pretty good take on the original, and happy to say it seems to linger longer on the skin (a great shortfall of the original fragrance is its lack of staying power). The inbuilt roller-ball tip application of this fragrance oil is not to my liking (my preference is always a spray-on fragrance), but I'm hoping the fragrance positives outweigh the application downside for me. Overall, enjoying the fragrance, and at this great price, happily applying liberally.
This is accurate enough I wouldn't bother buying the original, and I'm pretty fussy! it has comparable projection with the original and pretty good longevity. Fantastic product.
USPS lost my order and the customer service I received from POE was so helpful and kind. I ended up getting the order resent and I am absolutely in love with this scent.
Smelled the real thing in Mecca and it’s 95% similar
It was love at first smell with Eden. I haven't smelt the original Bal d’afique but have had another FB of Mohave Ghost and it becomes a skin scent on me after a couple of hours. So the oil lasts and not to mention its portability and price. In these times of rising costs of everything I can't justify forking out hundreds for a FB, but love this oil. Amazing value and lasting power.
