Description
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.

Love this scent. A mild floral with a powdery dry-down. The florals are not overwhelming. A year-round scent for people who are not fans of sweet scents.

I hated this scent. It reminded me of older women, and was a little too spicy scented for me. I prefer more fruity scents, and this was the opposite. Smelled powdery, and musky too. I know some people like this scent, but it wasn't for me.

Such a beautiful scent, it opens up after awhile, and smells like fresh violets, makes me feel elegant , beautiful and happy, just love the different notes this perfume has after awhile, what a great gift this would make for someone you love. I would buy a big bottle for myself. The service was also very good, so thxScent Bird, for my wonderful new perfume !

This is a great perfume. It has a lovely, soft powdery scent. It's not as soapy as Prada l'infusion d'Iris. The powder isn't overly strong, it's fresh enough to not give me a headache.

First, this scent does NOT last long, not an hour after I put it on it had faded and smells really cheap when it come to an end. It is unique, I don't feel like it's anything special. It does have a powdery note at the very..

If I could give this perfume more than 5 stars, I would! I love, love, love this fragrance!! I was kind of sketchy on whether I would like this (in fear, like some say, that it smelled too grandma), however, this is a classic example of how truly different everyone is, especially when it comes to scents. So glad that I kept this one in my scents to try.....love the way it dries down! Will definitely purchase in a big bottle.....thank you Scentbird!

This is a really lovely classic perfume style scent. I avoid florals overall, but like a stronger scent to a weaker. This has a bit of a bite at first but dries down nicely to a classic musky scent with a powdery but soft note that still feels mature. I'm 31, I'd definitely say it's a scent either natural perfume fanatics or those in the late 20s and up would appreciate rather than a strictly more youthful fragrance. Due to it's strength I strongly recommend one spray on chest and rubbing wrists there and putting on before your top when getting ready. Leaves behind a nice scent I've been complimented on twice in a couple weeks now.

It's definitely a glamorous smell, but I would only recommend wearing it at night if you are going out somewhere fancy. It's a bit strong for the day. I personally would not buy this though. After wearing it a few times, I got sick of the smell!

Awful, when I got the package, the perfume had leaked a little and it smelled so cheap, so pungent, with that horrible drugstore fragrance scent that I associate with the 1970s perfumes that used to be for sale at Walgreen's. I was hoping against hope that it would be different on my skin but I sprayed a little and I hated it. Usually I always give a fragrance a chance but this was a total nonstarter. There was nothing pretty about it whether spilled in the box or on my skin. No florals, in fact I could detect none of the top, middle, or base notes it's supposed to have. For me it was revolting and I washed it off within five minutes. Sad.
