This Fragrance Smells Like…

Aqua Allegoria Pera Granita is a gorgeously bright fragrance with sparkling citrus facets. The Eau de Toilette opens with an explosion of citrusy top notes as grapefruit, lemon and bergamot unite to evoke the sparkling flakes of ice associated with a cool granita. The scent then fades into a fruity white floral heart of fresh pear, velvety osmanthus and sweet orange blossom. As Pera Granita develops on your skin, it becomes soft, sensual and green, leaving a trail of moss, white musk and cedar.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Pera Granita is an ode to the delight of summer desserts, enjoyed in the dappled shade of pear trees. And yes, the dessert is question has to be a granita, which cools you down as you soak in the beauty of your natural surroundings.

But it’s not just this scent that’s inspired by nature. Master perfumer, Thierry Wasser, views the Aqua Allegoria collection as an allegory of nature itself, using nature as his core inspiration when creating the fragrances. GUERLAIN ensure the use of up to 95% natural ingredients in each scent and only the most exclusive raw materials collected from around the world in every fragrance; this ensures the most authentic natural scent for each of the notes included in Pera Granita Eau de Toilette.
