In 1979, French fashion house Balmain launched an iconic chypre perfume for women named Ivoire. In 2012, Balmain (led by a new young Creative Director Olivier Rousteing) sought to reinvent and reinterpret Ivoire for a new age. In doing so, they created this pretty feminine floral chypre which feels both modern and timeless, and tips it's hat to the house's rich perfume traditions.

Ivoire opens with notes of violet leaf, mandarin and galbanum, which usher in a dense floral heart of iris, ylang-ylang, jasmine and rose. The scent feels pretty and youthful and full of chaste promise. A warmer, earthier foundation of vetiver and cedar is wrapped in swathes of lip-smacking patchouli and vanilla.

It is hard to find fault in Balmain's Ivoire, particularly when it's overall feel is clean, delicate and sensuous. The perfect scent for work wear, daytime use, or on hot summer nights.
