Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Teazurra

Every year Guerlain releases a new Aqua Allegoria fragrance (and old ones that don’t sell well are phased out). The 2015 release is Teazurra:

As the name promises, this is a tea perfume. But lets start at the beginning:

The first thing I smell is a great rush of lemon. It’s almost too strong, but very refreshing. I think there are several citrus fruit in, but to me it mostly smells of lemon. This phase lasts longer on paper, on my skin it was over in a matter of minutes. The heart is made of tea and camomile. Very gentle, very grounding, yet elegant. Sadly, this phase only lasts about an hour, if even. At his point I was ready to declare it a very short lived perfume (not unlike its sibling Limon Verde).

But then the base shone through: Soft and gentle, but persistent vanilla, and something else (benzoin? musk?). And this phase lasts all day. It is sweet, but gentle enough that it should work even in hot weather.

So this perfume is perfect for everybody who wants citrus and tea, but dislikes the leather and oakmoss and other harsh or herbal smelling stuff that often comes with the first two (for example in Eau de Gaga). Apart from the first burst of citrus, Teazurra feels like a fluffy cloud, but never overwhelming. I like it very much, but I wish the tea phase lasted longer.

 

Other Aqua Allegorias still in production: Herba Fresca, Nerolia Bianca, Mandarine Basilic, Pampelune, Lys Soleia, Limon Verde. The 2015 duty free version of Aqua Allegoria is the same as in the last years (something with Rose, I forgot the exact name).
