Balenciaga is one of the finest Fashion Houses established back in 1937 by fashion innovator Cristobal Balenciaga. Their fragrance, Eau De Parfum is made with top notes of lily of the valley bell and violet green leaves that fade into darker notes of cashmeran wood. This creates a meticulous non-romantic, urban scent. The cracked texture on the perfume bottle was inspired by the marble tiling of the Balenciaga 10 Avenue George V Paris Salon, one of the finest maisons in French Heritage that still remains.
