Straight from the Balenciaga fashion house, the Florabotanica Eau de Parfum is described as a velvety floral that perfectly represents the brand's modernity and colors. When the fragrance first came out a couple years ago, I remember not being very interested in it because the brand made a certain Twilight actress that was all the rage at the time the spokesperson for the scent. Fortunately though, I am glad that I finally gave this scent a try because I am very, very in love with it. To read more, click........
The Florabotanica fragrance comes in what I personally consider to be the most unique and beautifully designed bottle ever. The scent is available in a variety of sizes, the one I have here is the 30mL and the bottle is a clear square bottle. One side of the bottle is painted red and the other blue. The cap has a modern black and white striped design and there is a little extension of that design into the bottle.
Florabotanica is what I would call a sweet floral. The mint top note is not very obvious to me as I immediately pick up the rose and amber. Despite the clean and modern design of the bottle, this is a very warm and comforting scent. I can see myself wearing this during the summer months but I can also see myself wearing it during the dead of winter, there is just something very cozy and alluring about this to me. The wear is decent, about five hours, depending on much you spray. If you are a fan of warm florals, definitely give this a sniff the next time you pop by the perfume counter, I swear you are going to love it!
