Balenciaga Paris: The New Black and White Fragrance Collection

Balenciaga Paris… ahh, possibly the most intoxicating fragrance out there. Following the success of the fragrance, Nicolas Ghesquière has pursued his exploration of beauty “between immateriality and a scented trail”, inviting others on a unique adventure with the black and white line .

With notes of fresh Chypre Violet, blended with a precious harmony of pure woods, the fragrance is delicate and elegant fragrance with notes that are blended so perfectly you can’t tell where the notes begin or end.

For 2010, this delicious scent has been transformed into a luxury white body cream ($95) made with shea butter, that is both smooth, yet light.

Both the cream and the Black Caviar Scrub ($95) come in gorgeous heavy glass prism jars with light-reflecting angles. The black scrub may look like fish eggs, but the smell is gorgeous. The scrub is made up of rich black microbeads in a moisturizing gel. When you rub the scrub in your skin, they burst, smoothing away dry skin and replenishing your skin.

For those who just want to sample the fragrance, the Purse Spray ($95) is a great option for testing and travel as it fits in your handbag, perfectly.

These would make a gorgeous last minute gift or stocking stuffer!
