Fragrance is my favorite everyday accessory and I have quite the collection of feminine perfumes! Today I’m sharing my latest addition, the recently launched Parfums de Marly Valaya. Read on for a full review along with first impressions and a scent test!
Parfums de Marly Valaya Review
The packaging is, as always, beautifully designed and high quality. I love the attention to detail on both the interior and exterior. The velvet lining protects the fragrance and looks incredibly luxurious.
PDM Valaya Bottle Design
Like the other fragrances from the Parfums de Marly feminine collection, the bottle design is very similar in design aside from the color. I have the entire collection and each hue very much represents the scent and feel of each fragrance. That’s one of my favorite things about Parfums de Marly! Everything is SO well thought out and perfectly connected.
The Valaya bottle includes a stunning clear frosted glass that exudes femininity, sensuality and lightness. The baroque style details on the bottle and elegant metal top incorporate their signature French style in an eye-catching way. There is also a dreamy braided tassel and sparkling jewel to accessorize an already gorgeous bottle.

First Impressions of Valaya eau de Parfum
I shared the very moment that I smelled it for the first time in my video review below. Let me tell, it did not disappoint! Like all PDM fragrances, the scent perfectly matched the color and design of the bottle. It’s light, airy, romantic and ethereal. The fragrance is incredibly feminine, elegant and pure, like a ray of sunshine.
This scent includes a lovely mix of fruit, floral and woodsy notes. It start off with a blast of citrus and transforms into a stunning white floral. If there was ever a “perfume ad perfume,” this is it. When I smell it, I just picture myself in a light pink tulle dress running through the most colorful and beautiful flower field with the warmth of the sunshine kissing my skin. It’s really that dreamy!
I think that Valaya would be ideal for the spring and summer seasons. It can easily be worn from day to night and I do think that it has potential to become a signature scent. It would also be a very pretty wedding day scent! It’s incredible how versatile it is.
Usually lighter scents like this only last 6-8 hours on me but surprisingly, this lasted the whole day! In fact, it actually lingered for a good 24 hours. Very impressed!
Overall Thoughts on Parfums de Marly Valaya
I LOVE all Parfums de Marly fragrances but this is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorites. PDM Delina is forever my fave but this is right up there with it, which says a lot. It smelled exactly how I imagined it to, but even better!
