Why Our Team Wanted To Try It


This Fragrance Smells Like…

Valaya Eau de Parfum’s light musky signature gives the fragrance an intimate quality; only someone close to you will smell it. In my eyes, it’s an ideal wedding fragrance. Valaya has an opulent pure musk note that conjures up the sensation of crisp white cotton on your skin, smooth white silk and intricate nuances of a lace veil.

The fragrance opens with a fresh burst of bergamot, juicy mandarin and white peach, met by the scent of a bride’s bouquet with orange flowers and cool nympheal, complimented by the soapy and earthy warmth vetiver that finishes off the likeness to a freshly cut bouquet. As the fragrance wears on the skin, it fades into an ambery ambrofix enhanced by a sensual pairing of akigalawood and musk.

What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Designed by Perfumer Julien Sprecher, Valaya is a unique take on the subtle differences between materials and textures that mimic the sensation of a soft veil of fresh cotton caressing your skin. It’s safe to say that Sprecher’s vision was achieved in this fragrance’s incredible ability to be light and radiant. At the same time, the addition of musk gives it an undeniably sexy quality due to its intimately soft trail.

You Will Love This If…

Is Valaya Unisex?

It’s hard not to love Valaya, so we can imagine it would be the ideal scent for both men and women – however, it is made for women.


What’s The Longevity Like?

Don’t mistake the radiant scent for lack of longevity. Valaya sits close to the skin for 4-6 hours.
