A pretty, light floral? This is it. Aquaflore (Carolina Herrera 1997) is slightly fruity (citrus, peach and melon) airy and unassuming. Actually though, it’s very “clean” and in the drydown it smells like a rainy day… But it’s a “clean and rainy” done by Carolina Herrera of course, and it’s a (late) 90’s fragrance so it has the inherent joyful optimism of that time (i.e. the same feeling given by some of the Aqua Allegoria fragrances, Jean Patou Sublime, Lancôme Trésor or Estée Lauder Pleasures). I like it a lot and it works well with my chemistry. I want a bigger bottle!

Top notes: mandarin, peach, violet, and melon. Middle notes: lily of the valley, jasmine, cyclamen, and rose. Base notes: sandalwood, musk, amber and iris.
