The fragrance was named after a famous person of the history of France. 'Balafre' means ‘scar’, and Le Balafre (The Scarred) was the nickname of Henry I de Lorianne, Duke of Guise, one of the actors of the St. Bartholomew’s Massacre, who had a scar on his face. The fragrance was launched in 1967 and is considered to be a classical fragrance for men. Balafre is rare and expensive as it is not in mass production any longer. Eau de Toilette can be ordered at the Lancome institute in Paris.

This sharp day-time fragrance is ideal for cold weather wear. The top notes are bergamot, cypress, green herbs, lavender and neroli. The heart notes are carnation, cedar, musk sage, fern, geranium, oregano, and pine needles. The base notes are amber, leather musk, oak moss and vetiver.

The nose behind this fragrance is Gerard Goupy.

This fragrance is really weird ( re-launched edition which is green). First I loved it, smelled like fresh lavander have some similarity with Caron Pour Homme but with less sweet and bought it then next days I smelled it again it seems very much different it was more smokey lavander, more like a dark forest feeling.

Anyway after while I tried it again and started to like some of the notes that I started to notice. I dont love it but I would not buy another one. It is a nice scent.

This fragrance is a statement.
A fragrance that gives man power.
It smells like trees. As one would go in the woods.
Often copied but never equaled.
A very similar scent is Bogner Deep Forest.

Fantastic scent.
I just want to get a hold of the original mix once again. It is so elegant and sporty for daytime use in the autumn, in the city or on the countryside among falling coloured leaves and fresh air.
It is a sporty gentlemans perfume.
I wonder why Lancome does not relaunch it. It is a classic by its own standards.
Bad marketing management by the house.

Hallo to all, I beame a new member, because all my searches for the vintage Fragrance in the last years has been unsuccessful. The aroma of BALAFRE has remained for me for all these years. Exact such as Fragrances like THAT MAN, MEN`S CLUB, OLD INN (early OLD PUB), SILVESTRE (not PINO) and GRES POUR HOMME. Theses wonderfull Fregances are out from the market - why? Has anyone an idea, how to get it?
