Balanciaga Fuite des Heures / Fleeting Moment from £8 for 2.25ml EDT
Vintage Balanciaga 1940s herbal chypre
Fuite des Heures was called Fleeting Moment in the US. Our bottle came from California, so it's got it's American name
It was created in 1948 by Germaine Cellier, two years after the legendary Le Dix, and our bottle appears to be the original design. We can't tell exactly how old it is, but it was unopened when I got it, and now it's stored in the perfume fridge to keep it in the best possible condition.
This is an Eau de Toilette, but they seem to have made them stronger in those days. It's not as fleeting as the name implies.
