I found Bal a Versailles 50 years ago in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands and fell in love with it and have used it ever since when able or find it. I was So Happy to order it from this web site. Please Keep offering it as I Will most certainly will be ordering more.

I've used the Bal à Versailles parfum for well over 30 years. And yes, I always received compliments on the way it smelled on me. It went extremely well with my body chemistry. It was discontinued for a few years, which led me on hunting expeditions to find it. Unfortunately, I had to eventually settle for other fragrances, none of which produced the scent that I was accustomed to. I am elated that it is back, even though I am a little disappointed that the parfum is not quite the same. It appears to be a little watered down, but it is still my favorite fragrance.

Received Bal a Versailles about a week or two ago. I bought it specifically because I am a Michael Jackson fan and every book I have read about him references this scent. At first, I made the mistake of buying the Eau De Toilette, which smelled like an old lady. It wasn't until I found a website where Karen Faye said to buy the PERFUME instead of the Eau De Toilette as they smell different from one another. It took a bit of getting used to. I've read that the perfume smelled like powder on Michael and on Karen Faye it smelled earthy. I can smell all of it. My brothers said it smelled like powder on me, which is actually the scent I was hoping for lol. It smells nice. I bought the cheapest one which is the small bottle. I literally just rub a little bit of it on my fingers and it lasts the entire day. I love it and I recommend it for any MJ fan or Elizabeth Taylor fan, as it was Elizabeth that got Michael hooked onto the stuff, to begin with!

I have been wearing this perfume for fifty-five years. It is me trade mark and I get nothing but compliments from both men and women. To Krissy 9ozs doesn’t keep me happy for long because I take a bath in it-lol.
