Alba fragrance notes

Reviews of Alba

If you're a female who wants to offend no one and smell somewhat conventional and stereotypically 'pretty,' this might be your scent. Alba smells like a hundred other scents that contain some sweet, slightly nutty and amber-y notes, and that slowly die down in a hush of girlish powder. It is not harsh or bothersome or dreadful in any way, it simply smells like the makeup department in a Bon Marche or a hand creme from CVS.

Profumum Alba isn't bad but is definitely more geared toward women, so it's simply not for me. A well-balanced powdery, woody, floral blend, Alba is decidedly lighter in terms of character but its decent performance gives it year-round potential. And with a hint of vanilla at the base to round things out, there's at least something to mitigate its powdery sharpness. Definitely just a miscalculation on my part to think I'd enjoy this one.

Genre: Woods

I have to work hard to smell Alba. Once its oddly sour floral top notes dissipate, it’s a shy, sweet, woody scent with a creamy texture so uniform that it’s bland: a blancmange for the nose. Alba’s sweetener is an almondy heliotrope that recalls Après l’Ondée, in comparison with which Alba suffers badly. Where the Guerlain has a rich iris, Alba offers only a bald pencil shavings synthetic woods base note that dominates the fragrance after less than an hour’s wear. An unremarkable scent at a remarkable price.

Powdery, slightly raspy woods with not much backbone. The powdery is strong in the top notes but backs off after a while. This is pleasant, but not something I'd wear. There's something a little strange in here, maybe the hazel wood mentioned in the notes, only noticeable up close. Positive rating because I think the quality is there, it's just not my kind of scent.

For now, it looks like I'm the only one who loves this.
Slightly praline , nutty cream mixed with some powder and white woods.F or some reason this is what Nivea in the blue jar/tin smells like on my skin too. Weird but true. This is possibly the last scent I thought would smell like Nivea but it does. The cream woods are skin soft and melt right into my skin. This is a very subtle scent but lasting .

Woody and resinous, Alba is a creamy combination of woods, hazelnut, woods, almonds, woods, amber and woods. Too bad the woods isn't strong but they are ever present. Dries down int oa typical amber accord. The nuttiness is quite appealing went bolstered by the amber base, make lacks any punch. A calm, and serene scent.
