Aimed at a younger street audience, the Alyssa Ashley Hip Hop fragrances stand out in the crowd and are great for gifting.
Created in 2015 by US fragrance brand Alyssa Ashley, Hip Hop B-Boy (‘break boy’) and B-Girl (‘break girl’) capture the hip hop generation. Inspired by the music, sounds and words of hip hop, these are fragrances dedicated to the younger hip hop generation.
Official Description: B-Boy
Hip Hop B-Boy‘s fragrance is warm, and harmonious with citrusy bergamot, lemon and orange enlivened by touches of sweet cinnamon. Aromatic scents of geranium and sophisticated notes of tobacco leaves define the heart, like lightning in the darkness. The fragrance takes on its character in the background: a strong and persistent warm wood, amber, vanilla and musk, rich notes of sensual and enveloping.
Official Description: B-Girl
Hip Hop B-Girl is a light fragrance, which opens with sweet citrus notes of mandarin and neroli yellow, wrapped by the spicy scent of cloves. Delightfully floral: an irresistible bouquet of orange blossom, jasmine sambac and damask rose. In the end, sensual and enveloping notes of sandal wood, labdanum, amber and musk enhances the character and persistence of the fragrance.

Alyssa Ashley Hip Hop Fragrance: What We Thought
On the first spray, the scent is very strong and overwhelmingly white floral, with labdanum (a leathery rock rose resin) very much in evidence. However, the fragrance quickly settles into a much softer white floral. In fact, after the dry down, it’s very subtle indeed. This scent reminds us of Guy LaRoche’s Fidji from back in the day, only not as strong. Very much a statement scent – some will find it too deep and sultry, but others will love its rich, musky, floral style.
This fragrance is classed as a citrus scent and it doesn’t disappoint! The initial spray reveals a wonderful burst of lemon, with vanilla coming through just behind. However, there’s also a very sweet tone that’s almost sugary, which is probably down to the cinnamon. Very fresh and individual, the sugary quality lasts past the initial citrus burst and dries down to a soft leathery scent that’s very warm and smells fantastic on the skin.
