There is not another one like Bal a Versailles. So, love her or hate her, immortalize her or behead her, she is the last ball of Versailles, the last song before the bodies of the aristocracy met the guillotine.
Romance, yes, intrigue, oh yes, treachery, webs of deceit, illicit affairs and undying love. La Belle France. A ball at Versailles

After reading all the good comments on BAV, i decided to order it and i received it this morning. I can say i am a bit disappointed actually. I think that it's more a "men fragnance". I know that Michael Jackson had used it for over 30 years. I don't think that it's very feminine, it's very bitter, smells like cinnamon. I hope i can like it more during upcoming winter. I want to love this perfume but it's smells soo manly to me. Also it's very unique and there's no other perfume that i can compare to it and i love the classic bottle.

    I have used this perfume since I was young. What I like the most is how long-lasting it is. The smell last forever!!! Fresh, soft and just amazing. And at your price, there is no way I would not buy it. Thank you for having it.

        My wife puts on Bal a Versailles every night before going to bed. It is one more reason why I love to hug her as we snuggle down for the night.

          Love this scent and it is so easy to order from FragranceX. It arrived so quickly and packed securely. This cologne is difficult to find in a local department store. FragranceX makes shopping easy.

            When I first tried it, I hated it! I found it overpowering, mood-depressing, and somehow foul. I was so disappointed. Then a few days later, I tried it again, but just a tiny bit. This time, it worked beautifully. Now I love it for its calming, mood-stabilizing effect, and the way it lasts and lasts until the next day, becoming powdery and fresh. Overall, by just using a tiny fraction of a spray, I find it refreshing, restful, and calming, which is a lovely effect from a masterfully-blended fragrance. It's unique!

                  I have been using Bal A Versailles since 1976. I love it! I always get compliments on it; it's my signature fragrance. I have been very dismayed when it has been sold out and unavailable. There is nothing else that I have tried even with the price that Bal A Versailles cost, that comes close to the fragrance.
