The bottle is amazing and the scent has excellent staying power, but it smells like cheap deodorant! I can't believe how overpriced Florabotanica is since the scent is nothing special. You MUST try it (and take a walk) before buying.

i bought sephora's sampler fargrance that had a certificate fir redeeming a full size version and i picked this, ( mostly because it was the mist expensive of the pack ($100)). but i also like the smell. a medium strength floral perfume. i wouldnt buy it if i had to pay the hundred, but otherwise a good fragrance

Florabotanica is an ethereal green fragrance with aquatic undertones on my skin. If I hadn't been lured in by the bottle, I could swear it was an Adidas. It's not full bottle worthy but I am planning to steal my mother's empty bottle when she is finished with it.

This fragrance is nuanced enough that makes it a standout floral scent. It sprays on a sweet, rosey floral scent and then starts to smell of powder. As it dries, the more grassy and clean notes of the scent really come out. I had been addicted to my Marc Jacobs Daisy but was looking for a change. This is a great choice if you're looking for a more modern take on rose or floral scent. The staying power is terrific and I notice that my friends have been sniffing or rather, inhaling me, when we meet up for dinner! Love this fragrance and the packaging is so eye catching, too! if you keep a careful eye out on eBay, you can snag a much lower price on this.

This is a beautiful fragrance. It really stands out from the sea of juicy, fruity florals that have been flooding the market. It's a sophisticated rose. I am not good at describing individual notes, but the vegetal part of it is what makes it so distinctive to me. What I love about it the most is that it doesn't change into anything generic or bland, it stays linear. The staying power is excellent. I have been debating getting Hermes Jardin series fragrance, but like this one much better in terms of staying power and overall scent.

The pros: 1. The bottle is really cute
2. The scent has excellent staying power.
3. The scent is not overpowering.
The cons: 1. The price (hello, waaaayyyy overpriced)
2. The scent is nothing special. Nothing about it that makes you do a retake.
3. The scent is really indistinct. You do not know what you are smelling.
Meh, I would not repurchase, but it is not a terrible product.

I now love this fragrance. I'll admit, I was drawn to it by its exquisite bottle. I debated with myself for months before purchasing it, because I wasn't sure if I liked the scent enough to pay for a full bottle. I'd sprayed Florabotanica on paper strips and even though I "liked" it, I didn't think I "loved" it enough to wear often. Finally, when we were sniffing around Sephora in the Forum Shops in Caesar's Palace, I sprayed it on my arm and 10 minutes later asked my sister to smell it. Her reaction sold me on it. Her eyes bugged out and she said, "Wow! That is GORGEOUS!" The ultimate test was my husband, who complains incessantly about my fragrances that he dislikes. He liked Florabotanica instantly and even identified it as, "Rose...Not nasty." (I'm so proud of him). I haven't found a rose that works well on me since "Chloe", so I'm thrilled to add Florabotanica to my melange. I especially love that this fragrance is light and fresh, yet definitely mysterious. The dry-down is unique and won't be mistaken for soap or a body spray. I find this to have very good lasting power.

Florabotanica is a superfeminine gentle rose fragrance. It whispers, not screams. It is not in your face and puffed out. It should not be worn clubbing or to loud rock concerts. It does not belong in an old aged home either, and would suit a young ingenue as well as all ages. It is fresh and lovely without trying too hard, ideal for a wedding, brunch, church and daytime events. If you are a fan of rose fragrances, you should try it. The first time I did, it did not stand out because it disappeared next to all the loud fragrances I had tried on with it on my arm. But when I tried my sample from Sephora at home the next day I was very pleasantly surprised and glad that I had given it another chance than just a fleeting spritz at the store when my arm was spritzed with about five other fragrances.
Florabotanica comes in a great black and white striped bottle, it really stands out from my other bottles and from the sea of fake plastic flower tops and lace bowtie tops that are now on the market. The bottle like the perfume is classy and modernly trendy vintage at the same time - it has a mod 60's appeal to it. I don't understand the bad reviews. Try it for yourself on skin that does not have anything else to mar its loveliness. The notes are: Carnation, Wild Mint. Turkish Rose Essence, Hemp Leaves, Vetiver and White Amber. A unique quality fragrance and bottle from Balenciaga, a couture Spanish design house.

A strangely oriental floral creation, layered but still fresh enough to remind of spring flowers. Could be day or night wear, easily. Rose/amber/vetiver make for a nicely rich feeling that is vintage, but the other notes keep it lively and green. Very nice

I really, REALLY love this fragrance!!! I'm not good at isolating individual elements comprising fragrances so I won't even try except to say Florabotanica is completely unlike anything else I've experienced. Overall I would say it is a combination of herbal and floral but not medicinal or jammy-sweet like so many "young" fragrances unfortunately are (I'm thinking Escada here). My all-time summer favorite has been Une Jardin sur le Nil by Hermes followed by Light Blue by Dolche and Gabanna but I can see Flora moving up to top shelf. Wearing this I know I don't smell like every woman coming and going; it's very distinctive in the best possible way. I love the artwork on the box - a garden full of otherworldly blossoms.
