Guerlain | Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia & Nettare di Sole Eau de Toilette: Review
For Spring and Summer 2021, Guerlain has added two new floral scents to the Aqua Allegoria collection. Inspired by a wildflower field and the honey bee, respectively, the Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia and Aqua Allegoria Nettare di Sole Eau de Toilette aim to reconnect the wearer with the beauty of nature.

Guerlain | Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia Eau de Toilette (C$99 for 75 ml):
Inspired by a spring meadow in full bloom, the new Floral Salvaggia (wildflower) opens on a note of sweet melon that gets engulfed by the intoxicating combination of iris, jasmine, and violet. I'm not sure I get the "wildflower" vibe from this one but the scent is nevertheless a beautiful warm floral that's perfect for spring and summer! The sillage and longevity are moderate at best but as I always say, I'm not too bothered when it comes to re-applying a beautiful scent.

Top Notes: Orange Blossom, Watermelon, Bergamot
Heart Notes: Jasmine Sambac, Wildflowers
Base Notes: Violet, Iris, White Musk

Solar Nectar, or Nettare di Sole, is described as "a honeyed bouquet assembled by the greatest flowers in fragrance". Opening on a refreshing note of citrus, this scent combines notes of magnolia, rose, and jasmine sambac with a hint of honey. The smell is sweet but not sickly, reminding me of a warm summer stroll in the garden. The sillage and longevity are both weak but the scent is alluring and unique enough that I would still recommend it to those looking for a sweet summer floral.

Top Notes: Calabrian Bergamot, Aquatic Notes, Orange Blossom
Heart Notes: Magnolia, Rose, Jasmine Sambac
Base Notes: Honey
