Valaya is the Quentin Bisch-nosed 2023 release from Parfums de Marly. While marketed towards women, the more I visit Valaya, the more I find dual facets of masculine and feminine.
Valaya is the ultimate Upper East sider-studied abroad-speaks six languages-played Division 1 crew-has declined countless marriage proposals of the clean and fresh fragrance world. Zingy, musky, floral, woody, with trace touches of fruit (white peach).
I love the zippy, quasi-dewy aldehydic facet, as well as the soft cottony feel that is found in this perfume which is inspired by a woman’s petticoat. The woody dimension makes me think of the wood used to craft a corset.
A perfect spring and summer fragrance, this could also be enjoyed year-round. Longevity and performance on me are both excellent.
I picked my bottle up from luckyscent.com where coupon TERRIE10 saves 10% off, including on sample sizes.
