Balmain has launched Carbone de Balmain, a new fragrance for men:
A modern and luminous fragrance, both spicy and woody, Carbone de Balmain is an enduring scent, worked around the black fig that is tinted with dark and sensual accents. A fragrance dedicated to a modern and urban man who has a passion for new technologies, performance, resistance and lightness.
The notes for the spicy fragrance include black fig, bourbon pepper, elemi resins, ivy, violet leaf, incense, benzoin, vetiver and musk.
Carbone de Balmain is available in 40 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette, and can be found now at Selfridges in the UK. (via selfridges)
