Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Bouquet No.2: new fragrance

After last year's Bouquet No.1, the succession has materialised at Guerlain:  
Aqua Allegoria Bouquet Numero 2, developed by in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser is presented with the tag line of old in vintage Guerlain advertisements: "inspired by nature, created by Guerlain".

The new take in Bouquet No.2 is on more tropical accords, rather than fresh florals unlike last year's edition; this time centered on the fruity notes of litchi, fanned on rose and iris for tenacity and elegance. The bottle is the typical, familiar 75ml/2.5oz spray bottle with the beehove latticework on top, the standard of the Aqua Allegoria line, to be distributed as a travel retail exclusive (much like last years Bouquet No.1).
According to the official Guerlain blurb: "Nature is an emotionally-charged setting where we gather treasures, which inspires and enfolds us. Every year, when springtime comes, the Guerlain perfumer conjures up gardens filled with scents, in a blend of allegory and exhilaration."


  1. Finally an AA I may like, after many years, and it's an airport exclusive while I mainly travel on land. Not fair, I'm telling you.

  2. Hell, talk about bad luck! Don't worry, I'm pretty sure that it will surface on auction sites eventually and if in the meantime I'm airborn (sounds menacing, doesn't it!) I will try to catch out samples for you!
