Developed by the historic fashion house's creative director, Olivier Rousteing, in partnership with Emilie Bourge, the offering is an evolution of Trudon's best-selling scent, Ernesto.
Ernesto has long been Rousteing's favourite Trudon scent, forming a key ingredient of the distinctive ambiance found within his office, home, as well as the Balmain boutiques across the globe.
Bouge concocted an expert floral and feminine flourish for Ernesto's masculine notes, relying on the mysterious and distinct touch of black rose in order to create an ideal olfactory reflection of the twenty-first century Balmain brand.
The unique glass vessel with its bold stripes references one of the brand's signature runway themes - his modern and luxe take on the traditional French sweater. The label is printed in gold foil and applied by hand.
The special edition candle is available in both the classic 270g size as well as the grand bougie 3kg.
Top notes: Atlas Cedarwood, Java Nutmeg
