The Perfume Of The Year: Balenciaga Florabotanica

Just a couple of days ago I mentioned a thing or two about the rumors swirling around Robert Pattinson’s perfume campaign for Dior. Today, it’s his girlfriend’s turn to take the spotlight. Before you ask: yes, they’re still together, some gossip outlet reported they were caught walking together hand in hand.

Remember that awkward, silly ad campaign with Kristen Stewart as the spokesperson of Balenciaga’s Florabotanica perfume? Everything seemed to really work against it: the backdrop, the model, her aura, her dress, the same worn by Jennifer Connelly in a season’s past ad campaign. And still, the fashion world has its own rules and judgement as the Fragrance Foundation Awards designated Florabotanica as the Fragrance of the Year and also received accolades as the Best Packaging of the Year. Well I’ll be …? See, if I wrote this piece before the one disputing the aesthetic of Tom Ford’s Fall 2013 ad campaign for women, I would’ve known better than to impose my perspective as the just one! Pffff

At this time of the year nothing smells as good as flowers in full bloom. :)
