The designer house of Balmain, led by young creative director Olivier Rousteing, steps out with a new interpretation of its signature, classical chypre, floral and fruity perfume Ivoire de Balmain from 1979. The new Ivoire launches in July 2012 as a modern version of this super popular fragrances of the eighties, created in a way that respects and preserves the heritage and richness of the original and causes nostalgia.
Olivier Rousteing finds the new composition fascinating for its timelessness. The composition is developed by perfumers Michel Almairac and Jacques Flori. The fragrance opens with accords of mandarin, violet leaf and galbanum, leading to the rich floral heart of rose, jasmine, iris and ylang-ylang. Elegant vetiver and cedar, with pronounced patchouli, are all wrapped up in warm, precious and delicate vanilla.
New Ivoire is available as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
