A stunning burst of clean citrus opens Aqua Allegoria Gentiana (Guerlain 2001), then soft, supple and perfect pear and gentiana shine through with an elegant sweetness. Gentiana is a clean fragrance in a very modern sort of way, but the delicate, complex Guerlinade transforms the other notes into something rich, very beautiful and unique. This fragrance is effortlessly chic and bright. It’s sophisticated but without pretense.
Top notes: orange, lime, grapefruit, and bergamot. Middle notes: gentiana, and pear. Base notes: sandalwood, and musk.
