An ode to feminity
The French brand has recently released a new fragrance, “Valaya”. With its pure and radiant bottle, this perfume holds a fresh yet intense scent.
Valaya The Fragrance
The perfume gives off a shining aura from the moment you lay your eyes on it. This brand-new fragrance brings an intimate sensation and a breath of fresh air to all that wear it. Inspired by the petticoat ladies used to wear under their garments during the 18th century, Valaya combines both periods: past and present. The highly fresh scent reminds me of fresh linen.
Made in France, the perfume is the perfect representation of contrasts. Delicate yet powerful, its scent represents all of the feminine qualities. Behind this glorious perfume are two talented noses Julien Sprecher and the French perfumer Quentin Bisch.
Below are the notes of Parfums de Marly Valaya:
- Top Notes – The perfume opens up with a burst of citrussy juice: Bergamot, Mandarin, and White Peach.
- Heart Notes – Warming the heart of the fragrance are Orange Flowers, Nympheal, and Vetiver.
- Base Notes – The sensual touch to the perfume comes from the three base notes: Akigalawood, Ambrofix, and Musk.
The unbeatable duo: Mandarin and Ambrofix.
The perfume is built up around these two particular notes. This should be right up your street if you love citrussy scents.
Known as one of the most comforting notes, the Mandarin used in this perfume is cultivated in Italy. The brand uses both peel and pulp to obtain the note. By doing so, the fruit delivers a juicy facet that is naturally produced.
This ingredient is at the heart of the sensual touch the perfume has. Obtained from 100% natural sugarcane, the amber molecule, when in contact with the skin, adds a warm feeling to Valaya.
I am familiar with Parfums de Marly fragrances, so I expected high quality and special notes in the new perfume. I am happy that they opted for a fresher scent in their latest collection, and Valaya screams out feminity at its best. The aroma is beautiful and can be worn easily throughout the day. With its citrus notes at the opening, the fragrance evolves and becomes a more intimate and cozy perfume. Ideal for those who don't like overpowering scents, Valaya is the perfect balance between freshness and sensuality. I would class Valaya as medium longevity, meaning that I could still smell it on an evening but very faintly. It makes a beautiful day-to-day fragrance and instantly lifts my mood when wearing it. I also think that Valaya is suitable for different age groups, and the scent reminds me of freshly washed clothes.
If you have yet to discover the scent, it is worth it. Parfums de Marly selects the highest quality actives when creating their scent. The French perfumer Quentin Bisch is behind some fantastic scents such as “Girls can do anything” from Zadig & Voltaire and multiple Chloe Fragrances. Valaya definitely has his touch.
