Florabotanica by Balenciaga

You may remember me telling you way back in July about how Twilight’s Kristen Stewart  was the face of Balenciaga’s fragrance, Florabotanica.
Well, today I’m here to tell you about that fragrance!


Florabotanica eau de parfum combines both the fantastical and ultra contemporary aspects of the Balenciaga brand.
Hence why Kristen Stewart was chosen to front the campaign I guess!
The Imaginative name evokes image and aroma of  18th century botanical gardens in which only the most exotic and rarest plant species were displayed.

Containing notes of vetiver and caladium leaf, the fragrance has dark, woody notes, while a hint of rose, carnation and mint adds instant freshness and lightness to the fragrance.
Encased in a stunning, contemporary, couture bottle, the bold lines and modern  bottle seem contradict the more traditional, floral notes of the perfume.
I was fooled into believing the fragrance was going to smell very different than it actually did, maily due to the marketing and from the packaging. 
I imagined it to be quite a strong, bold, modern fragrance. While it is both bold and modern, it is a far more romantic scent than I imagined it would be!

 Never before has it been more  true. Never judge a fragrance by its bottle! 
Florabotanica by Balenciaga is available now and retails at £40 for 30ml.
