Aqua Allegoria, iconic collection of Guerlain perfumes

Ginger Piccante, when the fiery ginger comes in an Aqua Allegoria by Guerlain
Ginger Piccan te by Guerlain comes in a bottle that is common to all the perfumes in the Aqua Allegoria collection. Moreover, the bottle of Aqua Allegoria is far from having been chosen at random. This is a modern reinterpretation of the famous Bee Flask. With such a design, Ginger Piccante takes us back into the history of this great perfume brand, more exactly in 1853, when the Bee Flask was offered to the Empress Eugenie to present the Imperial Eau de Cologne to her. Here, it forms a smooth glass cylinder in which a solar yellow juice is reflected. Rays of light filter through a finely chiseled honeycomb dome. The whole is surmounted by a golden ball, in an infinitely refined style.
Ginger deploys all its flavor and complexity in this fragrance. It first displays extreme freshness by combining with a zesty breath of lemon bergamot. It then heats up on contact with the pepper. Her heart, meanwhile, expresses all her femininity in a bouquet of roses. Finally, for more character, Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante ends with a cedar base.
The Guerlain house was born in the 19 th < / sup> century, and from generation to generation of Guerlain perfumer, the know-how, the concern for quality, the desire to surprise as well as the importance of the heritage endure, which he can explain. – to be why it always remains at the top of the perfume houses with its oldest creations, Shalimar or L’Heure Bleue, as with its most recent La Petite Robe Noire, the Ideal Man or the summer and precious scents of the Aqua collection Allegoria .
The invigorating freshness of ginger for an astonishing Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante
By creating the scented collection of Aqua Allegoria in 1999, Jean-Paul Guerlain wanted to leave his innovative mark for the last time in his beautiful Guerlain house. Because for the bottles of Aqua Allegoria, the goal is not to create complex compositions with multiple elements but rather to unite around “Calabrian gold”, bergamot, one or even two olfactory raw materials of exception which would symbolize a natural painting with sobriety and beauty.
“For each of them, my inspiration came from people or places that I loved. I have always composed my perfumes in this state of mind. ” told Jean-Paul Guerlain about the creation of the Aqua Allegoria.
The retired perfumer, it is the new appointed Guerlain perfumer, Thierry Wasser, who took up the torch of these beautiful creations whose more famous would be Aqua Allegoria Bergamot, Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune or even Aqua Allegoria Mandarine Basilic.
In 2019, Thierry Wasser is therefore creating three new bottles that would be added to the long list of successful Aqua bottles Allegoria namely Aqua Allegoria Flora Cherrysia, Aqua Allegoria Coconut Fizz and Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante. Surprisingly enough, Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante will not seek to take us to a specific point on the globe, but rather to make us penetrate into a new freshness that will take us to completely new flowery aquatic delights.
Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante, the unprecedented encounter of ginger and a rose
Guerlain perfumer Thierry Wasser has always stated loud and clear that the creation of perfumes was not conceived only in the laboratory but of course in the in order to find in particular the most raw materials in the world, and what is more if possible the most equitable from an ethical and ecological point of view.
Thus to compose Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante, Thierry Wasser s’ went to collect the most beautiful rhizome of ginger in order to explore both its stinging freshness and its green facets. Thus, he exploited this freshness alongside bergamot, signature of the Aqua Allegoria range, as well as alongside a nice note of lemon. This instant and icy freshness will nevertheless be taken by surprise by a floral and delicate heart of roses. Finally to coat this meeting of citrus fruits and delicate flowers, Thierry Wasser has chosen to end it with a ball of cedar notes that are both nervous but also woody and deep, giving this Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante a warm trail. / p>
