Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Bergamote Calabria EDT 75ml

Considering that Guerlain’s Aqua Allegorias are promoted as "the Collection of Fresh Fragrances," it’s quite remarkable that we had to wait almost twenty years to get one named after bergamot, perfumery’s most widely used fresh note and even featured in the list of Guerlinade ingredients. Maybe one reason is that bergamot is not what it used to be. Thierry Wasser has explained that while raw bergamot oil smells heavenly, deep, complex and rounded, almost like a perfume in itself, it can cause allergies when exposed to sunlight and therefore has been substituted with a “cleansed” product that smells somewhat flat and lifeless in comparison. According to Wasser, the absence of raw bergamot oil is one of the main reasons why modern Shalimar is so different from the vintage version.

For a brief moment in the top note of Bergamote Calabria, we get the juicy, fruity-green, astringently petrol-like feel of what bergamot should smell like. After this, the scent seems to have trouble deciding whether to be fresh or sweet. Like Limon Verde from 2014 (reportedly discontinued this year), it chooses the sweet side, where we find vanilla and an excessive amount of puffy white musk. In recent years, the Aqua Allegorias seem to have become studies in white musk. One would think that now that Sylvaine Delacourte has her own line of white musk it would be less emphasized at Guerlain.

The white musk nullifies any remains of Bergamote Calabria’s bergamot, but luckily the citrus note is carried on by petitgrain, one of the staples in the Aqua Allegoria series, with its distinct woody-orange, floral and metallic facets. The woodiness is underscored by earthy-spicy notes of ginger and cardamom. This mixture of woody orange, ginger and white musk remains the main accord of the scent. In fact, this fragrance ought to have been called Gingembre Arancia.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Passiflora

Passiflora belongs to the Aqua Allegoria collection, the first collection of intensely fresh fragrances in perfumery created in 1999.

On the strength of the Guerlain Perfumer’s expertise dating back to the legendary Eau de Cologne Impériale in 1853, the Guerlain Perfumer creates each of the Aqua Allegoria with the freshness of a Cologne and the hold of a Guerlain perfume. The guiding thread of the collection is bergamot, a precious citrus fruit, “Calabrian green gold”, the key ingredient in the Guerlinade.

The new Passiflora is an Eau de Toilette which brings a sparkling hint of freshness to the everyday. Sunny and invigorating, Passiflora blends the flavour of a sun-soaked passion fruit with the smoothness of ylang-ylang flowers, in an aquatic freshness reminiscent of the crystalline waters of a lagoon.

With its golden mesh, its pure, refined bottle is a tribute to the famous Bee bottle.
