Balmain captures brand essence in latest fragrance

Extatic is the latest fragrance from fashion house Balmain. Described as an incarnation of the Balmain style: a balance of boldness and elegance, the oriental floral bursts with crystalline rose, nashi pear and osmanthus, leading to a heart of chocolate-scented Sharry Baby orchid, iris and night jasmine. The scent finishes with amyrs and cashmere wood blended with a touch of Barenia leather.

The scent's creator, Emilie Coppermann, described it as “the olfactory metaphor of the Balmain woman, who captivates through a certain lightness combined with an assertive character.” Extatic will be available exclusively at Harrods from 20th January, and at selected department stores from the 3rd February. Prices range from £36 for a 40ml edp, to £65 for 90ml.
