Orange & Pomegranate – the new flavours of Newest Aqua Allegoria
First created by the Guerlain House in 1999 and added to each year by Thierry Wasser, the Aqua Allegoria collection joyfully continues to awaken the senses. Like scented odes to nature and joy, this is indeed a seductive and enchanting fragrance series with subtle sophistication and ever- lingering freshness. Designed using a fusion of unexpected notes that showcase one ingredient, -they are like twelve colourful postcards – a sensuous, happy and pleasurable journey to some of the world’s most stunning landscapes.
Says Thierry Wasser, its celebrated perfumer –
“I AM AN EXPLORER PERFUMER, I LOVE TO BROADEN MY HORIZONS. MY GARDEN OF RAW MATERIALS
IS THE WORLD. AND IT IS A PLAYGROUND WITHOUT LIMITS.”
Inspired by Thierry Wasser’s travels and made using some of the most beautiful ingredients – the delectable series of 12 fragrances is each unique and special.
Packaging: With its delicate golden honeycomb design and emblematic bee engraved onto the top, the Aqua Allegoria bottle is a beautifully pared-down, graceful homage to the famous Bee Bottle.
THE TWO NEW FRAGRANT ESCAPES FROM THIERRY WASSER AND DELPHINE JELK are:
An image of ‘Vast expanses of Sicilian citrus groves, laughter in the sunshine, picking and tasting a juicy orange in the shade as trees sway in the breeze’, comes alive with this one. The power of blood orange combines with the energizing power of mint.On a backdrop of wooded notes and Tonka bean, the beauty of a hearty blood orange is cut through with the freshness of mint, pink peppercorns, and bergamot- notes that invigorate & balance.
‘A run through a warm Andalusian garden to share in the exquisite crunchy taste of a pomegranate’ is easily captured. The essence of this deep jewel-like red fruit is elevated and refined with notes of sage (salvia in Italian). It’s a blend of pomegranate with aquatic, green acidic accents and red fruit. All carried by the crisp freshness of blackcurrant, cypress, lemon and bergamot and elegantly swirled with sage and rose with notes of white musks, moss and patchouli- a strong base and a stronger heart.
