Everyone, meet my new best friend Florabotanica. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this fragrance by Balenciaga ever since I saw a sneak peak of the packaging earlier this year. I am so obsessed with the freaky, weird looking flower pattern; it’s just stunning. And the bottle! Best bottle design ever, don’t you think? I was ecstatic when it finally came out here, and even more happy that I like the scent. Wait, scratch that – adore the scent. I usually don’t like rose, because most rose perfumes smell so… grandma-ish? But this new breed of rose, (an “experimental rose from Turkey” as they said), is anything but “old”. It is fresh, youthful and feels so close to the skin. The mix of mint makes the rose more energetic, and the fragrance overall feels like a fresh, green floral for everyday wear. I just love it. Have you tried it yet? If you so, please tell me you are obsessed as I am!
