Summary: I love Florabotanica, is not like a Masterpiece of perfumery but it's kind of unique, the dry down is very hmmm "warm", like the fresh notes are on top and then it keeps the floral-amber scents, I'm not an expert nose but well. If you like rose-floral fresh perfumes you may try this one, and definitely try Rosabotanica. It's not a perfume you may use for a glamorous event or night but it does make a difference... I love it.
Perfect trial size before investing in larger bottle!

Summary: I bought this to see if this perfume would be my new signature scent for spring/summer. Smells divine. Not overpowering. Received many compliments. I had my daughters also try this scent as perfumes smell differently on everyone. Perfection. Young or old, this fragrance is timeless.
Summary: I had never encountered Balenciaga CRISTOBAL before, whether in person or online, but Guusjes was kind enough to send me a sample of this now discontinued perfume. (Thank you!) CRISTOBAL is a smooth and resinous, lightly spicy oriental perfume. Everything is blended together beautifully, and my first reaction upon donning this creation was: "It's a perfume." There is definitely a density here which I have found lacking in many recent launches, both mainstream and niche.
Summary: Love love love heard so many good things about this scent but didn't want to commit to a big bottle, the size allowed me to get the full experience without the heavy price. I will definitely invest in a larger bottle in the future.
Summary: I've loved Balenciaga perfumes since the 60's and I love this new scent. I have gotten many compliments on it since I started wearing it. The scent is definitive but not overpowering like many floral scents.
Summary: Wow, this is a strong scented perfume. Worth the money as far as longevity goes. I'm not an overly huge fan of roses, but I do enjoy this scent. After I've worn it for a few hours the roses to fade a bit and you get a soft, lovely powder undertone. Very nice.
