Balenciaga Paris

With the holidays quickly approaching, I think that perfumes make wonderful gifts! Today I have  Balenciaga's Paris EDP* ($115 CAD/50ml, $150 CAD/75ml) to share with you. This perfume is very floral, yet I still think that it's wearable and not too strong.

"Balenciaga Paris is a lovely paradox, a fragrance full of light yet balanced with dark subtlety.
As the scent opens, an airy bouquet of violets is set against the antique charm of dried petals found between the pages of a book. Traces of past memories turn to the present as a peppery note swells over a calm trace of mossy wood. A scent that breathes in the secret hours of night, it is mysterious and fragile—yet leaves a lasting trail.

Its unique bottle winks at Balenciaga style. Fashioned of blown glass and left without engraving or adornments, its angles and curves culminate with an ivory cap that appears like a surprise rising from a velvet cape.
Notes: Violet Leaf, Pepper, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Vetiver.
Style: Light. Mysterious. Antique." - Sephora

Balenciaga Paris come packaged in a black pouch, which makes this perfume great for gifting! I personally don't store my bottle of perfume in the pouch, as I think that it's just more practical by itself. However, the pouch would be great to store jewelry in. The perfume bottle is a beautiful almost twisted glass design. The cap is an ivory design that I personally really love! Balenciaga Paris is a heavy floral scent, and I only need to use one spritz of this perfume as it is quite strong. This perfume has great lasting power, and I usually just need to spritz this on once in the morning and I'm set for the entire day. Although I do like to wear Balenciaga Paris during the day, I think that some people might think of this as a nighttime or date night scent. Whenever I'm wearing this scent my boyfriend comments that I smell really nice, so that's a huge bonus!

This perfume is quite pricey, but it has amazing staying power, and I think that this would make an excellent gift this holiday season. This bottle looks beautiful on my vanity, and if you're into floral scents I highly recommend giving this scent a sniff! Have you tried any of Balenciaga's fragrances? :)
