A Balmain button-inspired eagle provides the majestic finishing touch at the apex of the piece. Balmain Homme is a woody, oriental scent. The metallic freshness of bergamot complements the thrill of spices. Saffron and nutmeg provide a sensation that is as sensual as it is crisp. The perfume resonates with leather like a second skin and the subtle violet leaf provides an unexpected forbidden fruit accord. A the base of the fragrance, cedar wood fuses with the sweetness of tonka bean, becoming deeper after coming into contact with the moss.
