My perfume is the complex architecture of my most paradoxical sensations, those that have brought me the most beautiful rencontres of my life.
— Azzedine Alaïa

I started wearing Alaïa a few weeks ago and I’m smitten. Everyone keeps asking me, “What perfume are you wearing? You smell sensational!” Well, wouldn’t be very nice of me to keep it a secret now would it? 

I’m no perfumier but I know the fragrance is a mix of Freesia, Peony, musk and some animal notes. The black glass bottle designed by Martin Szekely pays homage to the label’s iconic laser-cut pattern - first debuted on a leather corset in the ‘80s.  How sexy is that?

From couture to perfume, Alaïa claims to offer “more women to be part of the happy few. The extract of Monsieur Alaïa's first fragrance, his declaration of love and allegiance to women. A tribute to goddesses. An alchemy that converts femininity into divinity.” 

I don’t know about you but I’m picking up what he’s putting down. Beautiful!
