A new Guerlain allegory

Each year, Guerlain revives the pleasure of Aqua Allegoria. A new creation joins the permanent collection made of four fragrances: Pamplelune, Herba Fresca, Mandarins Basilica, and Flora Nymph.

This spring, the creation signed by the perfumer Thierry Wasser is called Lys Solea. It is a solar, floral perfume, like a soft breeze above the turquoise sea that delicately touches the sun-warmed skin.

Lys Solea celebrates the Lily’s spirit and Ylang-Ylang, but exotic fruity notes counterbalance the smell of white flowers. In the end what stays on the skin is a nice tuberose, vanilla and musk fragrance, which evokes the pleasant laziness of hot summer days.

The perfume’s bottle is created by Robert Grana, like all the other perfumes in the collection, and is inspired by the Eau de Cologne Imperiale, created in 1853 for the Empress Eugenie. It is adorned with 69 bees and a honeycomb design, symbol of the detailed and precious art of the perfumer.

Price: €52/75 ml
