Modern. Intimate. Strong.
An intimate fragrance with the intensity of violet. A leathery violet with vibrant woody notes.
L'Essence intensifies the Balenciaga Paris violet essence. While the first Balenciaga Paris fragrance captured the classic side of the brand, L'Essence gets closer to the skin with leather and vibrant woody notes revealing the modern facet of Balenciaga. An assertive sophistication that is elegant with a touch of mystery.
Available in 1.7 oz. or 2.5 oz.
Inspired by Balenciaga jewelry, the bottle expresses a modern and elegant interpretation of the classic prism-shaped Balenciaga Paris bottle. The green gradation of the glass is complemented by the pyrite collar and hematite cap, truly reflecting the high quality and savoir-faire of the brand.
The first Cristobal Balenciaga house of haute couture was founded in 1919 in San Sebastian, Spain. By 1937, Paris became home to the famed couturier. In 1946, the House of Balenciaga launched its first perfume, and soon it attracted the same acclaim as the famous Balenciaga couture pieces, which are today under the skillful guidance of Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquiere.
