B. Balenciaga - 50ml EDP - $120, 75ml EDP - $155 - inspired by the marriage of old and new, a green wood fragrance with top notes of lily of the valley, violet leaves and green accords of edamame peas; heart notes of orris and cedar; and base notes of ambrette seed and cashmere wood.
Reflecting back on the fashion house’s classic heritage in a modern way, the bottle’s frosted glass has a unique crackle texture, inspired by the marble tiling of Balenciaga’s original 10 Avenue George V Paris salon.
I can totally get the green and wood from the fragrance, it's an interesting smell, but not really me - I think it's one of those scents that either smell really good on someone or turn into something unpleasant - so a good idea to try before you buy!
Available now at Holt Renfrew, Sephora and select Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
