[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Hard to imagine, I know, a glorious, sunshine filled day but it’s definitely what this fragrance needs to get the full olfactory effect. The Aqua Allegoria collection is designed to be fresh and to evoke sensory moments that feel both familiar and exciting. Flora Salvaggia is a very good example of mixing the familiar with the unexpected – a splash of watermelon brings this blend completely to life, uplifting the white flowers and bergamot with vitality and energy.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia

It’s a luminous scent – the sort that brightens the wearer by pushing any flatness to one side as a happy, exuberant presence. It is the first sip of a cool, sparkling drink or a step from the shade into sunshine. There’s a drop of powder from iris and violet but most present, for me, is the white flower accord and watermelon and not so much of the bergamot. If you asked me to test it blind, I’d swear to some lily of the valley, but I don’t see that listed as a note. Anyway, it’s an absolute delight best enjoyed in the sunshine and feels like the antidote to this mood-hoovering weather.
