My one and only fragrance!
Date:April 12, 2013
A salesperson at Macy's just told me that Aliage was being discontinued. OMG - I certainly hope that's not the case. I've been wearing Aliage since 1972, and would be very, very upset if that was the case. People, even strangers, compliment me on my "scent" - it's fresh, clean and has just the right amount of citrus & jasmine. When my daughter was little, she made me spray it on her blanket when we went out of town, just so she could still feel close to me. I'd be lost without my Aliage every day!
Aliage has been my favorite fragrance for many, many years (over 25!). I rarely wear any other. I frequently receive complements and inquiries as to the name of the awesome scent I'm sporting. Aliage is also my husband's favorite fragrance for me. I wish I could still buy the Aliage scented soaps and powders. Why is this perfume so hard to find?
Has something happened to the formulation? It appears to have lost the "swampy" note, which is an improvement; but in its place there's a whole lotta nutmeg. Like YSL l'Homme level nutmeg. It's hard to smell anything but the nutmeg in the reformulation - it's a bit too much. Wish Lauder would bottle the sublimely beautiful opening phase of Private Collection and issue it as its own green frag. Maybe bring it back as Celadon?
It's my birthday time again and a new bottle of this is on my list. I've used it practically since it first came out. It's such a classic. The lotion and slightly shimmery bath powder were wonderful, too. Sorry to see it did not get a gift kit with lotion this year like Estee or Cinnabar! Give this some love and please do not ever discontinue.
I wanted to like this spray, I really did. Just about every perfume/fragrance I own is an EL product. I'm very fond of clean, citrusy scents and based on the product description and all the positive reviews, I bought this.
I don't get the citrusy part at all. What I smell is cedar and maybe a whiff of Cinnabar, and some frankinsense, but no citrus. Maybe it's just me, but I was totally anticipating a clean light fragrance and what I got was a heavy, woodsy scent. My bad for not actually smelling it before I bought it, but I couldn't find it in any store where I live.
I'd send it back, but I've used it a couple of times and I'd feel guilty. My advice - go into a store and sample this before you buy.
This is a killer scent. Get through the first five minutes and it mellows out to a really green grassiness. Then, the pine arrives, just a hint, evoking a feeling that you have entered the forest at the edge of a meadow on a fall afternoon.
I get a lot of compliments from men on this one, but mainly because they want to try it themselves! My husband wears it, as does a male co-worker of mine and I surely agree that a man can easily wear this. I think Estee Lauder should advertise it towards men as well and it would open up a whole new market of buyers.
My only complaint is that none of my local Estee Lauder counters ever seem to carry it. The closest one that had it in stock recently was 25 miles away from me. I ordered four bottles from the estee lauder website, but now I have to go back and order three more, since I can only seem to find it here online. I have gifts to give!
This is a wonderful scent and I am also sorry it took me this long to find it. I am 39 and I have no desire to smell like froot loops and lucky charms, which is what 90% of today's perfume junk smells like. I understand that salesfolks have about 10 seconds to sell you on a perfume, so top notes are the big dollar signs these days. But the stuff they are coming out with is generic and boring! No more caramels and fruity flowers, PLEASE! Please keep making these older scents like Aliage, Youth Dew and Azuree. Otherwise, my nose will be quite sad. This is what perfume is supposed to be!
I am 57 and when I first started using Estee Lauder, there were 2 types of the Aliage fragrance! One was the Aliage Country fragrance and it was fabulous. Does anyone remember that?!!!!! I know they discontinued that totally and now only have the one Aliage and it is still "not the same". I guess the ingredients have been changed somewhat. I also enjoyed ALL the other forms: esp. miss the powder and creme. Wish you would bring back the country fragrance of Aliage.
Like others commenting I have adored Aliage since it first came out. I used the parfum, the powder, the lotion and it became my signature fragrance. People RAVED about my fragrance and often I was told that it was so unique to me, others knew when I had been down the hall because my fragrance trailed. I have always had positive comments on it. I am exceedingly disappointed that Estee has reduced this to a much diminished spray. I miss the parfum, the powder and lotion. II tried Issy Miyake, and it has not had the same effect. I would be elated if Estee brought my favorite fragrance back in all its glory! I've tried other Estee fragrances. None of them do for me what this fragrance does...even the Linen.
I have also been a loyal Aliage user since it first came out. I did like the additional products - the cologne, the shimmery powder was wonderful. I can't tell you how many times people have stopped me to ask what my fragrance is because it smells so good. I guess it blends with my body chemistry well. There was a time years ago that EL planned to discontinue it - I actually wrote a letter to inquire about buying a case of it so I would have it for as long as possible. You should market again, and encourage stores to carry more. I have resorted to ordering online because the local stores run out of it, seems like every time I am ready to buy a bottle. Bring back the powder!
I use to have a suitcase that smelled of Aliage dusting powder. My sister-in-law hastily packed it for me because I was sent to the ER after my daughter was born in 1980. Unfortunately, the top came off and most of it poured out onto the contents of my case. I wish you still had it. I think I had the perfume, the powder and the soap. Perhaps even lotion. What a wonderful fragrance. I still have some that is very long-lasting and smells exactly as the 1980's version. I use it very sparingly because I thought it was just a memory now. I can't imagine what they have done to it to make it different. I wish they had moroe products in the lineup.
Aliage has been my fragrance choice since the 1980s. It was fresh, sexy, and long-lasting. I also remember back then that it came in two versions. One was more like a cologne, and the other was more like an eau de toilette. I never liked the eau de toilette version. The cologne came in a more square bottle vs. the slimmer eau de cologne bottle that you currently sell.
It seems that you dropped the cologne and now offer only the lighter eau de toilette version. it is a shadow of what this fragrance used to be. From reading the reviews, I can see that I am not the only one who notices the difference. Not only does it lack the depth of the original fragrance, it doesn't last. 10 minutes after spraying it on, the fragrance is lost.
For all of the loyal Aliage wearers, please bring back the original fragrance...the cologne version of it. Sadly, I will not be buying again until you do.
Best For: night or office work date beach anywhere
I used Aliage throughout my 30's. I received compliments all the time. It was 'MY" fragrence. I can almost still smell what I considered a woodsy, sexy, but not heavy fragrance. I never smelled any perfume that came close to being as wonderful as Aliage. I am 75 now and I would love to go back to Aliage, but it was a difficult time in my life and I don't want it to bring back heart wrenching memories. But I have read several reviews that state it doesn't even smell like it used to.So I'll go ahead and take my chances. I'll let you know if it brings back memmories of old or pehaps it will be a part of making good new and wonderful memories. ffd
Best For: active women who enjoy a green fragrance
I first received this from my Mom when I was in high school, as I was very active. I bought a bottle and still love it. It is one of my favorite fragrances. It truly suits someone who is active, but is appropriate for any occasion.
Back in the mid-70s, I came to a screeching halt in a northern Virginia department store. I had caught a whiff of something quite wonderful. What is it? Where is it? I have GOT to have that!
I discovered it was Estee Lauder's Aliage - a new fragrance at the time.
It has been my primary fragrance ever since.
While it is sometimes in short supply, pushed to the back of the cabinet at the Estee Lauder counter, etc., it is still definitely one of the best fragrances the company has ever produced. Springtime in a bottle without being heavy or intense....
If it were given a new advertising promo (like some of the newer fragrances have been given), I have no doubt that it would once again stop shoppers in their tracks - just like it did me!!! Whether you are in your 20s or decades older, try Aliage.
I was really disappointed with the Aliage. I used to wear it in the 80's and LOVED it. Something has changed about it. The fragrance isn't the same. Don't know what you did but you need to put it back to the original.
What happened to the old fragance of Aliage? I have used this fragrance since the 70's. The old scent made a statement! Sexy! The new fragance cannot compare to the old. I see the little square, familar bottle (2 oz) has also been replaced with a slender (1.7 oz) size) . The price has changed as well. When something works, why try and fix it? Very disappointed.
Best For: every day use or going to business, not over-powering people around you.
I;ve used Aliage, since the late 1950's, and I have always received complements on it. It is a refreshing scent that is not over-powering, but it is there for not only you to enjoy but those around you. I've tried other perfumes, but none come close to Aliage.
