Aqua Allegoria Bergamote Calabria by Guerlain
Bergamote Calabria is this year's addition to the Aqua Allegoria line, one of Guerlain's most emblematic fragrance collections. Their launch in 1999 created a unique olfactory genre: the first collection of eau fraîche in perfumery.
Every year Thierry Wasser takes inspiration from nature and a beloved ingredient and his year, in collaboration with Delphine Jelk, they chose the glorious Calabrian bergamot and bottled it's vibrant and sunny essence.
Top notes are calabrian bergamot and petitgrain; middle notes are cardamom and ginger; base notes are woody notes and white musk.
It opens bright, joyous and sunny, a slightly crisp bitter bergamot with incredible intensity and freshness, spiced up by cardamom and ginger and rounded up by soft and subtle musks and woods.
A beautiful creation, ode to spring, simple yet sophisticated.
