Florabotanica contains notes of vetiver, amber, caladium leaf, rose,carnation and mint. "At first glance, it is a very floral, almost romanticcomposition. But on closer inspection, a strongerand more obscure character can be discerned. It is a perfume that I like to think of as tender anddangerous. An enchanting and provocative scent. " says Ghesquière.

The fragrance will be available in September exclusively at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, before rolling out at other retailers and internationally. Florabotanica will be available as 30ml, 50ml and 100ml eau de toilette, with matching body products.
