Balenciaga Paris, 10 Avenue George V
This is a singular house. From Cristobal Balenciaga to Nicolas Ghesquière, the space is steeped in an atmosphere both rigorous and whimsical. Between the experimentation of couture and the morale of the cut. In the House of Balenciaga, there is the couturier who obeys the rules of style, but also the artist who embraces the realm of dreams.
It is in this world that a new fragrance was born: BALENCIAGA PARIS.
A pure bottle without engraving or adornments... The pale, amber color of the liquid within is like the nectar of a forest floor trapped in a bell jar. It reveals itself, quite clearly, behind the facets and edges. A bottle like no other, in blown glass, an arbitrary process making it unique and precious. A bottle that features both angles and curves. A soft bottle with corners... A bottle also imbued with humor, as the ivory cap appears like a surprise, rising from its velvet cape. It has the Balenciaga style...
Scent - Introducing eau de parfum
Immediately, the demure violet note makes us think that BALENCIAGA PARIS is a light fragrance, as pleasant as sunshine. In BALENCIAGA PARIS, we find the first moments of April, floral breezes and blossoms from milder days. A spring-like feel: airy dresses and fleeting glances. A bouquet of violets also has an old-fashioned tone, the antique charm of a few dried petals that we find between the pages of a book by Colette, traces of memories, the work of art so fine that is the past... But soon, a peppery note reveals itself and swells over calm, mossy wood. Foliage that breathes in the secret hours of night.
Then, another more nocturnal facet of nature expresses itself. A sensuality becomes clearer. The shadowy color of the liquid within already says something of its mystery. It is a fragrance full of light with a few dark apertures. BALENCIAGA PARIS is a lovely paradox. It is a fragrance that becomes life, that melds with living. BALENCIAGA PARIS offers itself and guards itself...
Wear BALENCIAGA PARIS and become a close yet inaccessible woman who strolls under leafy arbors.
