Balenciaga Florabotanica EDP Spray, 50 ml
About this deal
Clinique Moisturisers Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ (Pump) for Very Dry to Dry Combination Skin 125ml / 4.2 fl.oz. My mother asked me for a bottle of perfume when asked what she'd like as a gift. She has worn most recently L'Eau D'Issey (which I find uninspiring) so I decided to find a better, more interesting alternative for her. Cue Florabotanica, I'm going to quote Luca Turin's review of this here as I can't say it better myself: Florabotanica is an exclusive fragrance by Balenciaga and a perennial favourite. It has been turning heads since 2012. This long-wearing parfum ensures a little goes a long way due to its high portion of essential oils. Most eaux de parfum have between 15-20%. Florientals, such as this one, (the word is a portmanteau of floral+oriental) are voluptuous but lighter than pure orientals. They blend orange blossom, ylang-ylang or other airy florals with the warmth of exotic woods, spices and resins. For a Special Night Out

Easily one of the best bottle designs in recent history - why oh why couldn't the fragrance be a bit more interesting?The head is dominated by mint. Next heart notes of rose and carnations take the stage. As the fragrance matures, a surge of vetiver and amber arises to sharpen the olfactory experience. (Vetiver, sometimes called khus, is an Indian grass similar to lemongrass.) The predominantly oriental tone here will sweep you into another time and place at twilight.

We are not talking about those extremely well-known roses from the Vulgaris Rosacea family. It is a hybrid rose born of the olfactory imagination of our two renowned noses. The sillage is relatively close and the longevity is simply outstanding, 12h+. It's an understated and inoffensive scent with a steady structure. It certainly is not a masterpiece, but a well-made everyday fragrance for green floral lovers.The vetiver, amber and caladium leaf accord create a resonance of mossy and mysterious dark wood, whilst experimental scents of 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 astonishing Florabotanica came to life in a four-hand score. The two composers, Olivier Polge and Jean-Christophe Hérault, have written a music of scents that play on two major accords.
