The first fragrance of Azzedine Alaïa is here: ALAÏA – it has become one of my favorites ever since and I have been using it as my everyday-perfume!
Fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa enters the world of perfumes and launched his first fragrance Alaïa. The fragrance is inspired by his childhood memories from his fatherland Tunisia. The scent is based on the contrast of cool tones, such as red pepper, and oriental, hot flavors, like musk. When you open the bottle, you immeditaly smell the airy notes and pink pepper. The bottle is glossy black and the decorations reminded me of the typical perforations in the creations of Alaïa. The cap appears to be made of gold thread, and is a real tribute to the craft of Alaïa’s couture pieces.
I am a perfume addict and have an insanely huge collection, but this has truly become one of my daily perfumes. Besides, it’s a beautiful item to put on your dresser!
“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.” – Azzedine Alaïa
