Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole, a novelty with the scent of spring at Guerlain
From India to California via Venezuela, Italy or Reunion Island, they are real globetrotters. This time, it’s the bee’s turn to get to work to develop an exceptional fragrance. Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole seems to have been foraged in the heart of a floral garden. The result is a very refreshing honey nectar.
The bee, an essential symbol of the house of Guerlain
If Guerlain has chosen to be inspired by the bee to make its Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole fragrance is simply because it is an insect protected by the brand for many years. Indeed, Guerlain is committed to the protection of bees, in particular by collaborating with the Conservatory of the Breton black bee of the island of Ouessant. Now, what more beautiful insect than this one to evoke a garden? The bee gathers flowers and thus creates a creamy and gourmet honey. It is therefore precisely this whole process that we find in Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole.
Le Flacon aux Abeilles de Guerlain
The evocation of the bee begins from the appearance of the bottle of Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole. Indeed, like all the essences in the saga, Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole is presented in a modern reinterpretation of the mythical Bee Flask. Initially imagined in 1853 for Empress Eugenie, this glass case has been brought up to date by artist Robert Granai. We recognize in particular its chiseled dome in golden honeycomb. More than ever, it sticks particularly to the spirit of this fragrance. The evocation of honey, for its part, is reflected in the solar color of its juice. Everything is contained in a packaging decorated by the American street artist Michael De Feo, better known under the pseudonym of The Flower Guy. Here it is about honey, white flowers and citrus fruits bathed in water.
Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole, a refreshing honey
Now that the stage is set, let’s go to the discovery of this perfume itself. The idea of Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole was to “draw from nature, with respect, what it has most beautiful […] and explore a honeyed bouquet composed of the greatest flowers of perfumery”. Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole is thought of as a flower foraged by a bee. This delicious iced honey is as bright as it is airy. To do this, he combines a honey accord with exceptional flowers, such as rose, magnolia or jasmine. For more clarity and freshness, an aquatic touch transcends the whole, while illuminated with Calabrian bergamot.
Every year, when spring arrives, the Guerlain house delivers a new composition from the Aqua Allegoria collection. The year 2020 has therefore not escaped tradition and the newcomer is presented as a refreshing honey nectar, made under a bright sun, in a huge field of flowers. Named Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole, this fragrance is presented in a solar and modern reinterpretation of the Flacon aux Abeilles by Guerlain. So what about his recipe? Decryption of its raw materials and its composition.
Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole, a fragrance promoting biodiversity
First of all, by choosing bees and honey as sources of inspiration, note that Guerlain advocates in favor of biodiversity. Indeed, the products of the hive are particularly used by the sign. Until then, honey was already very present in Guerlain cosmetics. As a reminder, Guerlain works alongside the Conservatory of the Breton black bee on the island of Ouessant. The objective is to preserve bees, major insects for the preservation of our environment. According to perfumers Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk, in charge of the development of Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole, this fragrance was created in order to “draw from nature, with respect, what it has most beautiful […] and explore a honeyed bouquet made up of the greatest flowers in perfumery ”.
Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole, a honey of frozen flowers
Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole evokes a sunny floral garden, foraged by bees. For this, it contains gourmet and round honey, associated with a generous bouquet of flowers. It brings together the flowers most used in perfumes for women, such as rose, magnolia and jasmine. Opulent and romantic, these last ones are refreshed with aquatic notes, in order to preserve a more airy side. In fact, this scent never becomes heady. It retains an all-spring lightness. Calabrian bergamot further reinforces its zesty but luminous aspect.
The possibility of personalizing Guerlain’s perfume
With Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole, the possibilities are endless . Guerlain offers the possibility of personalizing it, by associating it with a few other compositions of the Aqua Allegoria family. For a zestier finish, pair it with Bergamotte Calabria. For more exoticism, associate it with Coconut Fizz. Orange Soleia, meanwhile, is soaked in sunshine, as is Mandarine Basilic. Finally, if you dream of spicing it up, dare to combine it with Ginger Piccante, a fragrance presented as “the fantasy of a ginger flower from Asia”. To create your own olfactory composition, all you have to do is choose another scent, in addition to Aqua Allegoria Nettare Di Sole, and scent yourself successively, in equal quantities, with the two selected essences.
