GUERLAIN Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia Eau de Toilette Review

Review of GUERLAIN Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia Eau de Toilette

GUERLAIN have hundreds of fragrance under their belt; with many considered masterpieces of perfumery, each scent is recognised as a symbol of artistry, quality and style. New for 2021, Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia Eau de Toilette is no different; it’s a graceful chypre fragrance for women, which centres around fresh opulent florals.

 

This Fragrance Smells Like…

Part of the Aqua Allegoria range, Flora Salvaggia takes you on a sensory escape through tall blades of grass, swaying in the wind and scattered with wildflowers. The EDT opens with a refreshing watermelon accord, which mingles with a pretty wildflower accord that’s tinged with powdery iris and violet facets, all of which is elevated and illuminated by opulent white flowers before the scent warms into a sensual musk tone that lingers on the skin for hours on end.

 

What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Each year during springtime, GUERLAIN perfumers craft scents that epitomise a blossoming garden to add to the collectable Aqua Allegoria range of Eau de Toilettes. For 2021, master perfumer Thierry Wasser was inspired by his travels with Florea Salvaggia EDT paying homage to fields of wildflowers and the poetry of their scent.

 

You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of the Aqua Allegoria collection or chypre fragrances in general, you’ll love Flora Salvaggia; it has a sophisticated floral tone, but it’s been drenched in water just like a field of wildflower kissed by morning dew.

If you’re lucky enough to be able to collect the Aqua Allegoria scents, we’d recommend pairing Flora Salvaggia with another signature fragrance to create your own unique aroma.

Flora Salvaggia works well with:
• Bergamotte Calabria
• Rosa Rossa
 Granada Salvia
• Flora Cherrysia

 

This Perfume Smells Similar To:

For me, GUERLAIN’s Eau de Toilette has a similar dewy-musky tone to Jo Malone’s Wild Bluebell. But it’s elevated by GUERLAIN’s signature sense of opulence, which in this case comes from the luxurious bouquet of white florals. For readers who haven’t smelt Wild Bluebell, when I close my eyes and breathe in Flora Salvaggia, I picture a fresh water droplet running down the side of a violet petal.

 

What’s The Longevity Like?

Impressive for an Eau de Toilette, Flora Salvaggia lingers on the skin for around four to five hours.

 

What’s Special About The Bottle?

As with everything GUERLAIN touches, everything about Aqua Allegoria Flora Salvaggia exudes high end opulence. The soft lilac fragrance is housed within a luxurious weighted glass bottle that’s enhanced with exquisite gold details. Wrapped within a golden honeycomb collar and topped with GUERLAIN’s signature honey bee emblem, GUERLAIN’s flacon exudes luxury.
