  • Summary: This is so refined and beautiful. It stays close to the skin and smells a little mysterious without being heavy. It's a perfect fragrance to live in, I never feel like it's wearing me. There's a lot of violet at the beginning but it never gets too powdery--it's balanced by some green notes. The drydown, which happens slowly over the course of the day, is beautiful. A vanillic warmth with some spicy green and woodsy notes. It's feminine without being girly or too mature.

  • Summary: Reminds me of a lighter, fresher Tom Ford Violet Blonde and Guerlain Insolence EDP. I think anyone who likes these two will like Balenciaga Paris. I own & enjoy all three. For comparison, here are their notes from parfumo.net: Balenciaga Paris (2010): Bergamot, Oakmoss, Carnation, Spices, Labdanum, Patchouli, Pepper, Violet, Vetiver, Cedarwood Tom Ford Violet Blonde EDP (2011): Top Notes - Mandarin, Pink pepper, Violet leaf Heart Notes - Iris, Iris butter, Jasmine,...

  • Summary: I first became acquainted with Balenciaga Paris about 3 years ago. I liked it very much at the time, but never got around to purchasing any. Recently I've gotten several sample vials. I was surprised to find that I like it more now than I did a few years ago. I'm not good at describing the various notes in perfumes, but I can say it is floral without being flowery, unique without being weird, and sophisticated without being dated.

  • Summary: I love this! It's sophisticated and sexy and my husband actually asked what I was wearing! This is a guy who doesn't think it's necessary to own more than one fragrance! His usual comments when I ask what he thinks of a fragrance are "Smells like perfume to me" or "Smells like soap". A perfume lover he is not. But I had a sample of this from my SL at Nordstrom's who just wanted me to give it a test run.

Powdered Violets

LadyRogue, parfumo.net

  • Summary: Such few notes and among them carnation (a note that can be a big no-no on my skin) yet "Balenciaga Paris" is a powdery violet dream with a patchouli infused base (if the patchouli sounds daunting don't fear, it’s a very chic patchouli and it is hiding under the violet) that is extremely feminine and elegant. The cedar note adds character and the carnation is very well behaved. To my nose there is something ‘fresh’ in it but I can’t tell what it is; bergamot perhaps?

  • Summary: This has become by far my new favourite, and I usually don't play favourites with fragrance. I even bought the shower gel and body lotion. As everyone else has noted, predominant violet and a touch of sweetness, held in check by a dusting of pepper and dry woods. It doesn't list strawberry as a note, but this is what I think of when I smell the sweetness and I see it as a nod to Le Dix, which also had a strawberry note with violet.

  • Summary: I received a small sample of this perfume & I like this scent a lot, I normally like sweet smells but this is more mature & I like to wear it for work. However the lasting power is just not there... I find it's faded after only 3-4 hours. Based on that I don't think I would purchase the full-sized bottle.

  • Summary: After years of searching I finally found a fragrance that both fulfills the mature and sophisticated yet being feminine and light at the same time. Its sultry and sexy upon first application and fades into something light and sporty almost. On my skin it smells strongly of violet and pepper, with a woodsy undertone.
