San Diego Exclusive Inspired By Le Labo's Musc 25
Let's get dirty! In a GOOD way!
San Diego offers not only great views and vibes, but it also offers amazing scents. The beach is rendered with a realistic salty Ambergris, the beautiful mountains are portrayed through the bright Aldehydes and Roses that sweeten up the air almost with a "Vanilla" vibe. This combination is then powered through the most elegant, slightly opulent Musk that is to die for! The base offers an ultra-fine yet strong cedar and soft vetiver that does't leave you hangin' and lasts all day.
When I close my eyes and spray San Diego by Alexandria Fragrances I immediately get transported into a heavenly mountain side with beach views in La Joya. An experience that you have never had before put into a little bottle that holds this beautiful fragrance, waiting to be experienced by you anytime you please.
If you enjoy Le Labo's Musc 25, the you will definitely LOVE San Diego by Alexandria Fragrances.

I own 3 AF representations of Le Labo frags and all are tops in my collection, but out of all the Musk heavy scents I own or have tried this one seems truest to what Musk should be. It's a human body funk Musk in a very good way! So unique and addicting. I happened to layer it with Cachemire Lovers and man did that smell amazing! Damascus Rose is one of my favorites out of all my 200 bottles and 70 decants and samples. Another 13 is the 3rd AF of Le Labo and it belongs in a men's collection IMO. I've been a long time customer, very satisfied and their sample packs are an excellent and economical way to try all their selections. 7 5ml samples for $50 is a steal! Considering their 30mls go for $43, 35mls for 50 of 7 different scents is right on target. My opinion is that if you want 1 to 1 dead on copies of expensive scents AF is the one. Dua tends to alter and change them, for better and/or worse. I own 36 bottles and 8 sample packs so far. They're good trust me! One more thing. Everytime I buy a full bottle I request a 3 ml sample of another I may be interested in, they always come through and it usually leads to another full bottle purchase!
I really love this one!
Its like a fresh dry sheet!
Those aldehydes and clean musk really make you feel like you stepped out of the dryer.
To me its brisk, sharp, fresh, white and clean.
Its great for the summer, but I say anytime really.
Its not gonna be complex, it is linear, but it does it really well.
Definitely bottle worthy and backup bottle worthy.
El principio se nota la nota de aldeido mezclado con algo mineral, el fondo es de almizclé suave buena duración , huele como bien dicen a sábanas limpias impolutas blancas , me encanta .
I was looking for the correct words to explain it and I found these that reflect what it feels like. "On my skin, this smells like a baby that came out of a cool, soft, dusty, and soft-smelling bath, dressed in freshly laundered clothing" feels unisex right in the middle.
