Description
Florabotanica evokes ambivalent bewitching beauty. Velvety and thorny, flirting with hemp and vetiver roots. The scent is flowery, developed on a rose note with a narcotic hemp twist. The wearer is beautiful but dangerous, like some rare botanical species. Florabotanica is the fragrance of the Balenciaga botanic garden. It instills the brand with modernity and colors. While Balenciaga Paris paid tribute to the genius of Cristobal, this scent celebrates Nicolas’s futuristic perspective. The various facets of Nicolas’s inspiration are reflected in the bottle and outer box. The rich and surprising mix match of architectural lines, vivid colors, and venomous floral prints recurrent in Balenciaga’s fashion are translated into Florabotanica’s unique packaging.

Smells wonderful at first, dries down to really good. Nice floral, almost a bit too powdery for me at the end though.

I don't LOVE it.. It is an ok scent. It's definitely a fall/winter scent. It is florally but has masculine undertones.

Huge fan of this perfume. One single spritz lasted me all day. The main note I get from this is rose....but not at all like a rose perfume your grandmother used to wear! It is woody too, and as several of the other reviewers mentioned, there is absolutely no sweetness to this. The one other scent that is somewhat similar to this is Le Labo Rose 31.

I had seen Florabotanica advertised frequently by Sephora and other costmetic shops and was really excited to try it through Scentbird. I enjoy the scent, as it is a little bit more on the mature side. It doesn't have that cotton candy/sweet smell which I really enjoyed. I have been wearing it non-stop since I got it!
02/02/2016
If you love floral and woody, you will love this scent. It's a nice scent and a good change from the floral I'm used to. I think this scent could be for any age.

I'm brand new and little confused. I use reviews to help decide which fragrance to try. Seem like this site uses "fake" customers. Like Corri member since 2014, fragrance in queue but never purchased one!?!? Really?? Yet you fine the perfume "peppery, green and no floral....really?? who says that... A professional seller of perfume!!

This reminds me of another perfume-- Bright Crystal (Versace), but with a cleaner note to it. I haven't worn it yet so I can't speak to it's longevity, but if you like clean florals, this may be a good one for you to try.

I'm an idiot. The perfume is called Florabotanica and I don't like it because its too powerful a floral scent for me. I should've known better. Reminds me of a scent for a much older woman.

This perfume description made me anticapate a floral rock show! What I got was a coffehouse acoustic show. Two note baseline to me Poppy/Rose. Its not a bad perfume just somewhat a bore to me. Also does resemble Kenzo. Lasting power is pretty good 4 hours or more. Projection moderate...

Absolutely in love with this fragrance. It's not too floral and the woodsy Notes stand out to me. I literally can't stop smelling myself when I wear it and it lasts all day but is not overpowering. I will definitely be buying a full-size bottle.

if you could be in heaven walking through the most beautiful flower garden. I imagine that it would smell like this. Very floral so if you don't like floral you certainly won't like this. If you like the same things as i do you may very well love this. (my faves are estee lauder beyond paradise, marc jacobs daisy, very sexy by vistoria secret

I love this. To me it smells like flowers (maybe roses) that have been pressed between two pieces of fragrant wood. You can smell it on yourself all day but no matter how much I put on, it doesn't build upon itself and become overpowering. I don't get the top note/middle note/dry down phases with this. It smells the exact same from start to finish. I've worn this is the thick of summer, easily. But I think it's ideal for crisp, cool Autumn days because it has an iciness to it. It's a VERY UNIQUE floral. The flowers are definitely there. But it has the smell of the entire branch, not just the flowers. I smell the leaves and the wood as well.
09/22/2015
I can't tell if I like this perfume or hate it. Ok, when you spray it on clothing and sniff it closely, it's super lovely, like a very sharp citrusy rose scent. But when you spray it all over and get the general smell, it's a lot like kenzo's

"A green and really different, earthy, carnation, rose. The longevity and siliage on this is monstrous. It's a great spring scent, but I bet I'll be wearing this year round. It's my new signature for sure. Crazy intoxicating. This is definitely not a blind buy since it's so original. It's not your typical floral. It's a little powdery but not crazy so. The cannibus and mint give it a real edginess. Fabulous!"

"If it were not for Scentbird, I never would have discovered this fresh, intoxicating floral fragrance. I prefer floral perfumes and this turns out to be one of the best I have experienced in a long, long time. I may have a new favorite. It's clean, and addictive. Not sugary floral, not powdery... hard to explain. I want more and more. It doesn't burn the nose or eyes by being over bearing. It's the perfect strength. Unique and true to its notes. Don't fear the rose in this. Nothing grandma about it. Fragrance is my hobby and this is a new and interesting favorite. Thank you Scentbird for bringing us the opportunity to try new products. Love the atomizer!"
