Florabotanica by Balenciaga c2012

Florabotanica by Balenciaga: launched in 2012. 


Aimed at younger audience, Balenciaga, in collaboration with Coty, Prestige and IFF created the new fragrance FLORABOTANICA which attracts attention with its modern, attractive flacon and unusual ingredients.

So what does it smell like? The composition was developed by perfumers of the house of IFF, Olivier Polge and Jean-Christophe Herault, who composed it of such accords as mint, carnation, hybrid rose, caladium leaves, amber and vetiver. It was envisaged that the composition would offer floral character, which is also very seductive and its flowers will not be just beautiful, but also very dangerous.
  • Top notes: Carnation, Wild Mint
  • Middle notes: Turkish rose essence
  • Base notes: Hemp leaves, vetiver roots, white amber


The advertising campaign is decorated with three metal sculptures resembling the Ghesquière floral print created a few years ago. Photos for the campaign were taken by Steven Meisel, and the advertising face is  actress Kristen Stewart. She is wearing a dress from the floral collection and holding her hands in her pockets.

Florabotanica is available as 30, 50 and 100 ml EDP accompanied by perfumed body care products—body lotion and shower gel.
