Balenciaga Florabotanica Eau de Parfum

Product information

Inspired by a strange and wonderful garden in which you do not know whether the flowers are innocent or poisonous, Florabotanica from Balenciaga evokes the 18th Century botanical gardens in which the most exotic and rarest plant species were displayed. Strange-coloured plants discovered in distant countries brought back from their travels by enthusiastic biologists.

The vetiver, amber and caladium leaf accord create a resonance of mossy and mysterious dark wood, whilst the Experimental rose, carnation and mint accords add an exhilarating, freshness to the fragrance. To give Florabotanica its fairytale air, the perfumers added a formula of psychosensory plants, making it particularly enchanting.

The highly graphic black and white stripes on the bottle echo a signature dear to Cristóbal Balenciaga and the visions of extremely contemporary cuts of which Nicolas Ghesquière is fond in his designs. The oversized tube with bold lines plunges into the floral perfume like a laboratory test tube looking to capture the secret essence of flowers.

Just wonderful Love it! I was happy to find my preferred perfume at John Lewis Thank you 22 April 2014
Heaven in a bottle Never has a fragrance made such an impact. It captures you and envelopes you in its layers of warmth and flora. It is stimulating, comforting, warm and sensual all at once and makes you happy too. A wonderful unique fragrance. 19 February 2014
Aptly named! The bold design of the bottle attracted me initially as well as the fact that Balenciaga is my all time favourite scent. This is a little too floral for me...overpowering when first applied but better over time. 04 February 2014
Wow, an edgy classic... I adore everything about this perfume. The bottle is so beautiful - clean lines, bold colours, lovely to hold, and it's quite androgynous which is refreshing (no pearls, diamonds, bling or pink), in fact the bottle could even pass as a mans fragrance... however the contents are most definitely feminine. The fragrance is really sophisticated, nothing girly or sugary about it, if like me you may have been put off by the 'floral' label I would urge you to give it a try as it may take you by surprise. I think it's pretty unique, however if there was one fragrance I would liken it to it would be Agency Provocateur's AP sauce which it does remind me of a little. I have now asked for the shower gel and body lotion as Christmas presents as I LOVE it so much!! 10 December 2012
Delicious Delicious bottle, and fine scent, a mixture of floral with a hint of exoticism. One of life's daily pleasures. 26 November 2012
