ALAÏA by AZZEDINE ALAÏA 100ml

ALAÏA by AZZEDINE ALAÏA 100ml is a Leather fragrance for women. Alaïa was launched in 2015. The nose behind this fragrance is Marie Salamagne. Top notes are Pink Pepper and Mountain Air; middle notes are Peony, Freesia and Rose; base notes are Leather, Violet and White Musk.

Fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa enters the world of perfumes under the license of Beaute Prestige International and launches his first fragrance Alaïa. The fragrance is inspired by the designer’s memories of childhood spent in Tunisia like water poured over hot brick walls.

The first fragrance by fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa, this contemporary concoction draws a dramatic contrast of warm and cool notes in a dazzling display of enticing power. A fresh and distinctive opening of airy notes that carries a breeze of spicy pink pepper. A heart of classic flowers; rose, jasmine and peony. Finally an epilogue of rich, warm musk notes.

“My perfume is not reasonable — it makes time lie. I dreamed of it like an archaeologist dreams of sculptures from antiquity lying at the bottom of the sea for millennia, sculptures of perfect bodies, matched only by the women of today — an ideal and timeless beauty.”

The scent is based on the contrast of cool tones, such as red pepper, and oriental, hot flavors, like musk. The composition is signed by perfumer Marie Salamagne. It opens with airy notes and pink pepper. Middle notes include freesia and peony flowers, placed at the base of animalistic tones and musk.

Oriental bottle design is signed by Martin Szekely. The face of the perfume is Guinevere Van Seenus, photographed by Roversi.

ALL PERFUMES ARE FAR FROM EQUAL

We offer NZ’s best prices for a discerning market. Enjoy prices that are a cut above bargain basement and well below department stores. Our fragrances are the genuine article, but it is the integrity or quality of the perfume that matters. There are many reasons why perfumes spoil, often well before they are purchased by the consumer. Heat is the biggest culprit (that we term baked, like wine).

FROM WHOLESALER TO RETAILER

Many perfume discounters use sea freight for a month or so without climate control in a metal container ( New York to Auckland) plus however long they sit on the dock. At Designer Direct we only use Air Freight. Costly but your nose will love you.

CLIMATE CONTROL

The cheaper the fragrance, the less of a bargain you’re getting, and the more likely it was stored with a lack of climate-controlled warehousing. Both our NZ stores where we ship orders from have climate control.
