Balenciaga’s latest fragrance L’Edition Reflets may herald the original scent of violets Balenciaga Paris from back in 2008, but it now comes incased in a beautifully sheeny bottle – inspired by the luminous, reflective accents of the iconic handbags and fashion accessories.
A sophisticated, feminine and refined blend created by Olivier Polge, the fashion house’s floral chypre fragrance is a enticing combination of violet and woods.
It opens with notes of violet leaves and pink and black pepper, followed by the essence of violet at the heart and a base of patchouli, Texas cedre and vetiver.
