Bonjour tiny LOC readers =)
I am the happiest girl in the world today - LOC is turning three (when did this happen?) and we are celebrating this with the launch of the new Azzedine Alaïa perfume that is available in the stores from today on.
Flaconi and I teamed up to show you this new fragrance that quickly stole my heart. I have always been really picky when it comes to perfumes. I just had not found the perfect one, until now. You know that one scent that really describes you as a person and defines you? Oh well. I was so excited when I heard that Alaïa was introducing a fragrance because apparently he thought about this for ages. It was just meant to be.
Alaïa simply has his own schedule, just like he doesn't even show during regular wear season (or every season), he took his time to create something beautiful, magical and timeless. To me, his attitude is truly inspiring. If something is not ready, then he doesn't show it. As simple as that. But his fragrance is finally ready, and so am I.
I read that the scent is being described as the smell of cold water falling on hot chalk. Interesting, reminds me of being in the sauna actually. I'd the heavy, black-golden flacon stands for Alaïa himself and reminds you of the beautiful dresses he usually creates. The scent itself is not sweet, but tangy with a hint of oriental, Alaïa's background. It contains all things Parisian. A young lady strolling down the streets of Paris looking all chic wearing black trousers, turtleneck, a red lippy, little bag, cute kitten heels and big shades. I would imagine a person like Audrey Hepburn in 'Funny face' loving this scent - she's dainty but strong.
I just got back from my new apartment, so excited! As I said, the following days will be busy, but I surely won't forget that my baby turns three today - so stay tuned for some throwback pictures on Instagram and there'll be a giveaway in the next few days! Lots of love, xx
