AZZEDINE ALAIA: ALAIA EXTRAIT DE PARFUM

High fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa entered the world of fragrances earlier in 2015 with the leathery, floral scent Alaïa, filled with contrast of hot and cold. The fragrance was inspired by the designer’s memories of his childhood spent in Tunisia and water splashed onto hot brick walls.
In November 2015, the new edition Alaïa Extrait de Parfum is launched, which represents a sensual interpretation of the original with a pronounced “second skin” effect. The top notes are fresh due to airy accords. The heart is an abstract floral impression that includes violet and iris. The base captures animalistic leather and musky notes that create the impression of a second skin, enhanced by warm vanilla. The composition is signed by perfumer Marie Salamagne.
The bottle is made of transparent black glass, adorned with an Alaïa lace pattern. Its crystal cap contains a glass applicator. The fragrance is available as 20 ml Extrait de Parfum.
