Balmain Homme is woody, oriental scent with the metallic freshness of bergamot complementing the thrill of spices. Selected by perfumer Olivier Pescheux, saffron and nutmeg provide a sensation that is as sensual as it is crisp. A vibration that energises and reaches the depths of the composition. The perfume resonates with leather like a second skin and the subtle violet leaf provides an unexpected forbidden fruit accord. A generous middle note and volte-face evoke the independence of the "made in" Balmain label. And then, oh so languorously, the cedar wood fuses with the sweetness of tonka beans and becomes deeper after coming into contact with the moss. Unique, imposing and bold, the bottle reflects the house of Balmain's iconic pieces.
