Questions and Answers
Q: How does La Vita smell?
A: Maison Alhambra La Vita is a very French fragrance. It comes across as flirty and fresh with a lot of citrus in the opening presentation. It also has an edge of sophistication and glamour that comes through in the deeper notes, including jasmine and rose. There are touches of earthiness as well from woody notes, sandalwood, vetiver and musk. The vanilla in the base notes also plays out nicely to add some sweetness to the overall profile.
Q: Where do you apply La Vita?
A: To increase the longevity of the fragrance, spray onto your major pulse points such as behind your ears, at the base of your neck, on the wrists, behind the knees and in the inner elbows.
Q: What is the fragrance concentration?
A: This perfume is an eau de parfum. It should have between 15% and 20% oil concentration. The higher level of oil means it will have strength and longevity. You want to apply it carefully to avoid it being too overpowering. A heavy hand won't make it last longer.
Q: Is La Vita for him or her?
A: This is a feminine presenting fragrance. It is very light and bright with touches of sweetness. Still, it has many notes that are also pleasing to men. A man who isn't married to only masculine-leaning scents may enjoy this quite a bit.
Q: Does La Vita last long?
A: La Vita has moderate strength. You can get better wear if you apply it to moist skin as dry skin soaks up the oils quicker. Also, consider spritzing on your clothing for more longevity. Keep in mind that an eau de parfum should last six to eight hours under normal conditions, but high-heat environments will make it fade much sooner.

A: Jimmy Choo Blossom, Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Honeysuckle, Christian Dior Poison Girl
