By Any Other Name by ALTAIA: Great Perfumes, Recommended by T Editors
Whether you’re a lifelong adherent of a single scent or a compulsive collector, you likely have one particular fragrance that can transport you. We polled T editors about their favorite scents. From a timeless jasmine blend to a perfume that conjures ’90s New York, here are the results.
A Floral Blend With Soft Peony Notes
The perfume line ALTAIA, short for A Long Time Ago In Argentina, is inspired by its creators’ South American heritage. When I wear the scent By Any Other Name ($210), it makes a statement, like a simple long black dress. The fragrance is soft and elegant, with rose notes and hints of peony and osmanthus. It’s just enough to convert a perfume-opposed individual. — CATHLEEN O’NEIL
