Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca Eau de Toilette

I bought this fragrance new in 2019 with plans to to truly use it. The Aqua Allegoria line by Guerlain reasonably priced and it’s aesthetic is bright, cheerful, comfortable elegance. It’s perfect for daily use.

Nose: Thierry Wasser 2013

Notes: Orange, Bitter orange, Orange blossom, Neroli, Twigs and Leaves of orange and Petit grain.

I didn’t use it everyday as planned. But I obviously did make a dent, so to speak.

Whenever I wear it I think of Ireland, and specifically the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin as when I stayed their in Match of 2010 it smelled remarkably similar to Nerolia Bianca throughout the whole hotel. Of course there must have been some neroli, petit grain, orange, orange blossom accord used in the air at the hotel. …Or does most of Dublin smell like neroli? I need to return there in the future to investigate. *laugh*

Vol De Nuit

There are few fragrances that affect me emotionally the way Vol De Nuit does. Perhaps it’s the woody, feminine, pensive beauty of this gorgeous Guerlain composed by Jacques Guerlain in 1933 or the thought of flying in the air in the 1930’s? Whatever it is…I love this one.

The flacon Rayonnant designed to look like a propeller is also iconic and glorious. And, of course, it perfectly suits Vol De Nuit.

The notes on Fragrantica are listed as: Galbanum, Narcissus, Bergamot, Orange Blossom, Lemon, Orange, Mandarin Orange, Iris, Narcissus, Aldehydes, Vanilla, Violet, Indonesian Carnation, Rose, Jasmine. Oakmoss, Orris Root, Sandalwood, Spices and Musk. …Galbanum is a favorite note of mine, as are iris, violet, oakmoss, citrus, vanilla, and carnation. Actually there isn’t a note in this fragrance I don’t love…

The 2010’s parfum I own isn’t fantastic as far as projection, but it’s perfect for wearing in public for that very reason. Someday maybe I’ll be fortunate enough to own a vintage of this bottle.
