Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Figue-Iris, Laurier-Réglisse (2008) {New Fragrances}



Guerlain will issue two new Aqua Allegorias at the end of March 2008. Figue-Iris offers a composition based on fig and iris and Laurier-Réglisse on laurel and licorice. This is a collection that is particularly dear to Jean-Paul Guerlain. He is the perfumer behind the first one and Sylvaine Delacourte collaborated with Marie Salamagne one the second one......

According to Osmoz, Figue-Iris is a green fruity juice, which offers hesperidic, lactonic, powdery, woody, and vanillic facets. Laurier-Réglisse is an aromatic-gourmand perfume which offers green, floral, anise-y and amber-y facets.

The Aqua Allegoria is a line of fresh perfumes and the creations vary from carefree to full-of-personality as with Pamplelune

  1. I am rather excited at the combo of Figue-Iris.

  2. It does sound good.

    Both combos sound more audacious than usual while drawing at the same time of pre-tested "unusual" notes.

  3. Just tried both. They got released today in Canada and I was waiting for both. I much prefer Figue-Iris which has more of a grown-up feel. Softly woody and powdery, it lingers for a long time. I feel in love with it. As for Laurier-Réglisse, I am very disappointed. I am a Jicky user and I expected something more anis-y and woody, a bit in the same line as Jicky. It smells like a bowl of lemon jelly beans. It has a teenage-feel. To me, it does not have the Guerlain spirit. I will definitely get Figue-Iris, though.

  4. I am glad you found a new love. I'd have to agree that Figue-Iris has more affinities with a classic Guerlain than Laurier-Réglisse. And as it turns out it is attributed to Jean-Paul Guerlain.
