In 1999, Guerlain launched its first fragrance collection inspired by nature, called Aqua Allegoria. A collection that translates into a celebration of diversity, colors, and the freedom of nature. The fragrances it comprises are elegant and full of joie de vivre, representing happiness in its purest form. Created from natural ingredients from around the world, selected by Maison’s perfumer-explorers, the fragrances embody the powerful message of the collection: the world is our garden. Aqua Allegoria represents Guerlain’s longstanding commitment to the planet and biodiversity. The collection is an example of Maison’s sustainable approach to creating beautiful and precious fragrances in harmony with nature.
Sunlight makes the earth appear stronger and more woody. This magical moment inspired Guerlain perfumers to create the new aromatic collection Aqua Allegoria Forte. Fragrances that are deeper, more complex, and longer-lasting. They are also more intense and stronger. This Forte line is a reinterpretation of classic Aqua Allegoria scents. It celebrates the power of wood with three new intensely woody eau de parfums. More than a new collection, it is a tribute to trees and forests, which are essential to biodiversity. Trees are the “lungs of the Earth” and sustain natural ecosystems. The woody notes in the fragrances represent this power. They symbolize character, persistence, and longevity. Bosca Vanilla, Rosa Palissandro, and Oud Yuzu are the three fragrances from the Forte line. Distinct, they are unusually intense.
Bosca Vanilla, a woody vanilla fragrance with a touch of salt and sun
The inspiration for this fragrance came from a beach in Corsica, surrounded by eucalyptus trees, where driftwood is shaped by the elements and acquires a salty and intense aroma. Maison’s vanilla tincture adds a sweet and woody touch, while the spicy notes of the everlasting flower, Corsica’s emblematic flower, enhance the contrast between salt and sweetness. Powerful and addictive, the fragrance is equally strong and striking, with an intense sillage. A delightful salty perfume, perfect for year-round wear.
Oud Yuzu, a woody citrus fragrance that combines darkness and light
A fragrance inspired by the contrast between oud wood, a sacred and powerful wood, and yuzu, a bitter and fresh citrus. With oud wood as its base, it is a complex aromatic wood that has been used in perfumes for centuries. Here, it is combined with cedar notes to create a deep and warm aroma. In this unexpected contrast, yuzu emerges as a top note. A spicy citrus that adds a touch of freshness and brightness to the fragrance. The result is a fragrance that is simultaneously powerful and refreshing. Ideal for those who want a striking and memorable fragrance.
Rosa Palissandro, a woody floral fragrance that combines strength and delicacy
A perfume inspired by the contrast between rosewood, a strong and aromatic tropical wood, and Turkish rose, a delicate and fragrant flower. With rosewood as its base, also known as bois de rose, it expresses its complexity in a unique and distinctive fragrance. Here, it is combined with notes of bergamot, lemon, and coriander to create a fresh and spicy opening. Turkish rose emerges as a delicate and fragrant flower, adding a touch of femininity to the fragrance. Patchouli enhances the woody character of rosewood, imbuing it with depth, while sandalwood ensures the perfect balance with its creamy and full-bodied tones. Elegantly structured, this woody floral invites seduction through a combination of strong and soft, masculine and feminine, perfuming the skin with an exquisitely noble aroma.
