I have used Aliage since 1973. My late husband bought it for me for every Christmas, Birthday, Anniversary, or "just because". I can't begin to tell you how many people have stopped me to ask what fragrance i am wearing. It remains my signature fragrance, although it is getting harder to find. And I do agree that the original fragrance has been changed and, although i will continue to buy it, I do prefer the original. Please don't ever stop making Aliage. I just don't feel like myself without it!
I've been wearing Aliage for more than 40 years. Love its fresh and refreshing fragrance. What made me a lifetime user occurred on a hike when a woman stopped me and asked what fragrance I was wearing. I thought she was joking, but she wasn't. Please do not ever discontinue it. I'd love it see the fragrance incorporated into other products such as hand lotion and soap.
Very disappointed this was not available before Christmas, It smells like a Christmas and I like to order it then. I have gotten several coplements on the fragarance. It is made in US why can't you have it avalible? Hope lessons learned this year.
I have used Aliage Colonge since it was first released. I have used nothing else but. I am very sad that you no longer make the cologne. I know I will never find anything like it. PLEASE BRING THE COLONGE BACK.
I have always loved Aliage (the original version.) Please bring it back. There has never been and will never be another quite like it. While Beautiful and Pleasures are interesting and flattering fragrances, the original Aliage is unparalled and enhances my body chemistry. I want it back!
I have used Aliage for over 30 years I probably will never wear another even if Este' discontinues making....My question is WHY would they..this is the most delicious sent ever. I guess if my only option is to purchase online I will. How sad this is brought out and advertised more. Please continue to provide to us die hards...there is no reason to "always" change some things!
Aliage has been a favorite for over thirty years. I've found it to be incredibly versatile, for summer, for sports, for daytime, anytime. I have quite a collection of fragrances but Aliage is the one I wear most, my go-to signature scent. Aliage is also the fragrance that strangers comment on the most, telling me I (it) smells great and asking what (perfume) I'm wearing. It's been rumored for years that Aliage would be discontinued. Aliage still has a lot of fans and I think there could be many more if Estée Lauder reintroduced it. It fits today's trends for: an active lifestyle, a simplified life, and an awareness of the environment. Estée Lauder is missing a great opportunity. The time for Aliage has come again.
I wore this scent in college in the 70s, having first received it with a GWP. Back then, my nose was more sensitive and the initial strong woodiness of it was a bit intense for my tastes. I saw it in the store recently and decided to re-try it, and noted that after the initial woodiness diffused off, there is a wonderful scent hidden underneath. So, I went back for a full bottle and am thoroughly enjoying this re-discovered gem. I hope EL continues to carry it.
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.
