"Alexandria Fragrances is owned and operated by Hany Hafez, a native of Cairo, Egypt who now resides in Anaheim, California. Hany’s family on his mother’s side had owned a number of shops in his childhood, which introduced him to the world of fragrance. As a child, Hany would help out around the shops. As time went on, he began mixing oils and creating his own fragrances.
After being encouraged by positive feedback from his friends and family, he opened his own shop in early 2002. Also working as a part-time tour guide, it was one of his duties to make sure his tourists visited the proper shops and bazaars to purchase essential and perfume oils. He maintained the shop for eight years, until he decided to move to Europe for a short time. He moved to the United States to be with his family in 2011.
Shortly after coming to the States, Hany began feeling the pricing for niche fragrances was unreasonable, and that the performance of many of them didn’t justify that price. He decided to go back to his fragrance-making background to develop competitive luxury fragrances. In 2017, after several years of assisting others launch their fragrance brands, Hany launched his own house, Alexandria Fragrances." - a note from the brand.
Had a damaged shipment, and it was replaced in just a couple of days. I was alerted to every step. Very nice job.
I have a sample of Dior Homme Parfum and I can't tell the difference between the 2 on dry down. It has that rich deep smell that drives women crazy and has you as the best smelling guy in the room. The only difference I noticed was it has a fresher opening which I think is a crowd pleaser and I love it.
Got this as a sample when I bought Zion. Ironically I ended up liking this one way more than Zion, even though it wasn't bad, and I bought a full bottle afterwards. The rum, vanilla, and cinnamon notes especially catches folks attention. I wear this often. The sillage isn't as strong as I would like it and it winds up becoming a skin scent after a while, but I've come to appreciate that.
Service is always top notch! Shipping is always on point and the fragrances are always amazing!!
I just love Black tie affair. It's got a beautiful kinda chocolate vibe with some citrus notes that morph into a black tea note. Sort of a earl grey affair I get hints of smooth vanilla as well.It's just a great enjoyable scent that is floating really well in the cool fall breeze.
