Cristobal Balenciaga

2015-03-09 12.24.15 (2)Cristobal Balenciaga’s namesake fragrance (Cristobal Balenciaga 1988) is rich, warm and sultry.  Soft, but bold florals (peony in particular) are surrounded by an elegant patchouli, sandalwood and a poignant vanilla.  Cristobal Balenciaga is lovely in an unusual, sweet, but not too sweet sort of way.  It’s an engrossing fragrance – mysterious and yet friendly.

Top notes: carnation, fig leaf and bergamot.   Middle notes: peony, freesia and jasmine.   Base notes: sandalwood, patchouli and vanilla.
