B. by Balenciaga Review
Description
B. is not a revolutionary fragrance from Balenciaga, but really, how many scents occupy that much desired space? It is instead a reliable but still well-made option one can reach for with abandon. The green notes dominate without being sharp; actually, B. is very muted all throughout. The scent smells bland despite the edamame peas, but could be worn almost everywhere and all year.

Positives
Bright and fresh from the beginning, green without being harsh
A well-made blend of green and woodsy notes
Pretty, we find this easy to wear with little consideration
Gives off some warmth but works well for all seasons
Negatives
Unchallenging and somewhat bland for us
The edamame peas don’t really give the scent a unique touch

Balenciaga released B. in 2014. The fragrance was signed by perfumer Domitille Bertier, who used woodsy accords to enrich the green notes. The opening reveals ingredients of violet leaves, lily of the valley and edamame peas, while mid-phase, the cedar and orris begin to emerge. Its base notes are cashmere wood and ambrette seed. The lovely flacon that contains the juice has taken cues from the house’s Parisian salon.
