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 fragileyet 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.
Violet Leaf, Pepper, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Vetiver.
Light. Mysterious. Antique.
Founded by Cristobal Balenciaga, the House of Balenciaga fashioned itself a label in 1919 in San Sebastián, Spain—and launched to instant praise. By 1937, the brand stationed itself in Paris, the capital of couture, where Balenciaga was soon named "King of Couture." Today, with designer Nicolas Ghesquière at the helm, the brand embodies both structure and whimsy. In the House of Balenciaga, there is the individual who believes in certain codes of refinement, but also the artist who embraces the realm of dreams. And it is in this exciting world that a new fragrance was born.
