Kristen Stewart the face of the Florabotanica fragrance by Balenciaga Paris, appears in her new campaign, shot by Craig McDean. The image features Kristen in black and white with colorful floral vines crawling up her bare back and wrapping around her shoulders. Florabotanica is a fragrance based on an experimental rose. The scent opens with refreshing notes of wild mint, while the heart is a delicate Turkish rose essence. The scent dries down into vetiver notes and white amber.
What Balenciaga thinks their fragrance smells like: “Florabotanica is an experimental rose fragrance whose story takes place in a strange and wonderful garden in which you don’t know whether the flowers are innocent or poisonous.” The bottle is a couture object that completes the story of a beautiful flower inside a dangerous garden. The highly graphic black and white stripes are a very strong visual element in the history of Balenciaga fashion.
The face of FLORABOTANICA Kristen Stewart follows Charlotte Gainsbourg who represents Balenciaga Paris, the first fragrance, since 2010. Since the start of her Hollywood career, Kristen Stewart has captivated audiences with her impassioned character portrayals.
