Reviews of Alaļa

Smells like flying business class: generic spa toiletries, a bit of leather car interior, metallic recycled air and a bit of musk. It's uncanny as a scent memory but not a perfume I want to wear.

Practically nonexistent, this scent begins with a dry peppery accord, then weaves in a floral mix that is more chemical than floral (freesia? peony? I think not!) It ends in a non-descript white musk with a sharp, metalic chemical underlay.

Quite poor, indeed!

The first time I sprayed this, I got an initial blast of florals, followed, surprisingly, by an intriguing wet stone/cement note. Second time I sprayed, all I could detect was the ubiquitous default accord of modern-day perfumery—pepper, fruit, and flowers—which pretty much played the same tune on my skin until the dry down. I had to really press my nose to my wrist to try and suss out anything beyond that. What I got was a bit of citrus and spice (cinnamon?), maybe some leather. But so what? This thing has zero projection, I don't even see the point of wearing it. I tried, I really did, spraying with abandon on both wrists, décolletage, neck, etc. Nope. It didn’t even envelop ME in its own cloud. After about an hour, it started its dry down into a musky woody accord of no particular distinction. Very disappointing.

A fragrance of pure well blended.a nice harmony of floral,spice and leather not too strong not too soft.this could easily pass for a YSL or perhaps a well made classic estee lauder.reminds me a little soft version of YSL NU EDP.Alaia is Elegant, Sweet,Feminine,Intoxicating,Gorgeous, Sensuous and Delicious.this EDP opens with the spice of pink pepper followed by the refined notes of aldehyde.the heart magnifies the scent of leather as it fills the air with virility and this dries down the musk and violet become more noticeable but the leather and pink pepper still remain present and strong that will surely linger in your fact the base notes adding to a cozy,more feminine aura without being girly.ideal for indoor and outdoor use.


Longevity?Satisfactory on my skin.

Salty floral. I don't get any hints of leather, or anything interesting at all frankly (compared to the favourable online reviews).

Marketed as feminine but could be of interest to guys. In fact the high-end store in my city places it in both men's and women's fragrance sections
Starts with a dry, airy note. The peppery dryness balances a slightly sweet floral chord. The floral is not identifiable as freesia or peony, it is if anything more like violet or violet leaf, with a slightly metallic and silvery-grey quality. The scent settles into a slightly dirty (and interesting) musk.
Miminalistic in style. A clever balance between dry and sweet, restrained and animalic. Sits very close to the skin. Interesting and different from the usual.
