Violet leaf absolut is mixed with peony and iris root in the heart, followed by the base of cedar, cashmere, vetiver and ambrette seed.

Available in soft - pink colored bottle of the original design as 50 and 75 ml Eau de Parfum.

I really wanted to like B Skin since I'm a huge fan of original B and more recently, fell hard for B Intense but sorry to say, this is eau de baby aspirin crushed in a dirty ashtray. No thanks.

Ok, is it just me or does the drydown of this smell like a rich old lady's breath?
Kinda sour, kinda bitter...Is that the vetiver I'm smelling?

When I sprayed this on I got a very fresh spicy scent. I thought for sure there was some kind of pepper in here, but all I can figure is that the cedar & vetiver really go wild on me.
I get a creamy musk like sensation, I can contribute this to cashmere woods and the soya beans.
On the other hand I get a fresh, sharp, green take that smells a lot more like violet leaf than tea to me.
I think the orris root is blended in with the musk somewhere.
Overall the smell is spicy, creamy natural musky, and green.
For a "skin" scent I was expecting something just a little more creamy, sweet, or floral. This is very dry and spicy on me.
Overall I like it though.

I requested a sample of this with Sephora order. This is a pleasant, clean, powdery scent. I don't know what soya beans smell like but I'm not picking up on anything wildly unique in this perfume. I will enjoy the sample while it lasts but would not buy a full bottle.

The packaging is very pretty however this perfume is a blatant copy of Cerruti 1881 but not as good. Cerruti 1881 has a lovely fleur de lin note (smells like fresh linen) and a wonderful dry down. Far better value than the Balenciaga. Cerruti 1881 has new packaging since I last wore it but I don't know if the formula has changed as well. I hope not.

so many of the notes listed here are things i generally really like. except vetiver and cedar. and i can't really say about the soybeans!

anyway... this is awful on me. like Sweet-tarts candy and pink grapefruit juice.
both of which are things i can't stand.

powdery fake tangy bitter, mixed with sour, bitter citrus.

with a wet-cigarette-ashes-hamster-cage undertone (which would be the vetiver and cedar)

I'm wearing a sample of this today. It went on very fresh and green at first. I like a clean scent for work so I thought that was good.

I got into my car and in that closed space it smelled quite strong. It also started to smell sweet, like YSL Parisienne. I asked my carpool partner if it was too strong and she said she could smell it and had noticed it when she got into the car, but the scent was inoffensive and smelled clean, like a shower gel or soap.

Now about 2 hours since I sprayed it I'm still getting a sweetness. But when I put my nose to my wrist I smell the leathery notes.

I wish the clean notes would last longer.

Violet leaf is the main note. for some reason that note gives me a headache. So usually I just dismiss any fragrance with violet leaf (in high quantities).
But I'm a guy and this is a women perfume so I should shut up and save my whining for another time.
Balenciaga Skin feels green. Clean too. But mostly green.
The tea adds a soothing dryness. Most of the notes are typical 'masculine' with the exception of Peony and Lily of the valley. So I get the allegory to skin, sort of neutral, a perfume that can be elusive and mimic the scent of clean skin.
Do I like it? Mmmmmmh, I don't know. after a while it becomes too linear for my taste.

After a brief citrus opening, all I get are woods, overwhelming woods.

I plan to purchase the 1.7 oz. of this for my birthday nest month. I received a sample of it from a perfume sales person at Nordstrom, and I'm really glad I gave it a full week to see if my body chemistry worked compatibly with it. I'm a fruity-floral fan-- my go-to fragrances are Chanel Chance Eau Tendre and Marc Jacobs Daisy. I've been wanting a more grown-up cologne, but the few I like-- from Estee Lauder Pleasures always becomes too powdery on me, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet doesn't work, either-- just didn't suit me. Until B. Skin from Balenciaga. It actually doesn't seem green on me-- less vegetation, but more floral. Whew! I love woodsy, masculine scents, but I want to smell feminine. This one is it!

I like floral woody musk group, but this fragrance really didn' t match with my skin :(
It's feminine, but too much synthetic for my taste. I can detect violet leaves or green tea, or other flowers. Anyway, IMO, it's rather weird. I prefer Balenciaga Paris ;)

Smells very similar to regular Balenciaga B, but with a weird synthetic note and a bit more florals (and not violet-florals, but some other flowers). The original is much better, but B Skin will do in a pinch.

This is a beautiful fragrance and smells A LOT like Caligna (I'm doing a wrist to wrist comparison as I own both).
Caligna is more smooth and this one is more green but apart from that these two are very similar.
