Alexander Wang previewed his first fragrance for Balenciaga during the resort preview on Thursday. B Balenciaga is at once fresh and woody, with notes of lily of the valley, violet green leaves, edamame, and cedar and cashmeran wood. “I’ve always been attracted to scents with strong green notes, and we also added a darker woody flair to it,” Wang told WWD.
The bottle is reminiscent of the marble flooring in Cristobal Balenciaga’s original Paris salon, also calling to mind the marble patterns Wang incorporated into his first collection for the house. Architectural, the bottle also represents well his designs for the house.
B joins two other current Balenciaga fragrances; Florabotanica and Rosabotanica, on sale come October at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and select Sephora locations.
