Reviews of Aqua Allegoria Teazzurra

Like a caress on the skin.delicate and discreet yet lively and citrusy.Aqua Allegoria Tazzurra is like having a large glass of green tea with ice and couple of jasmin leaves decorated by a thin jest of lemon on top after shower on a warm day.it makes you calm down even in a fretful mood.there is a beautiful green tea note.Ethereal,Soft,Cozy,Relaxing,Friendly, Green,Invigorating,Uplifting,Lighthearted and Lively.


It starts off smelling green,flowery,herby,citrusy and fresh with a touch of chamomile and fades down to subtle sweet herbiness and green tea.the dry down continue to be a smooth and slightly sweet tea note,
turning into more of a jasmine green tea than a lemon note.recommended for spring and summer.ideal for casual days or warm evenings when you are fresh out of the shower.nothing something new but a very revilatizing fragrance.

Sillage?Light to moderate.

Longevity?About 4 hours on my skin.

Teazzurra by Guerlain opens with a bright splash of citrus (lime zest), a soft jasmine note, and what I can only describe as a green musk. The yuzu is quite noticeable and plays out as a combination of grapefruit and pineapple. The green tea accord slides into view along with a large dose of aquatic musk as the pleasant fruity-floral aspect fades. I do not like this musk at all. To be fair, ‘calone’ is listed as one of the notes and this could be taken as a warning or perhaps a cheeky apology.

Although I wanted to scrub Teazzurra about five minutes after spraying, I suffered through three hours of wear along with some additional sprays to re-examine the opening and decide if this is a sideways thumb or a ‘thumbs down’. Most of the time, if I dislike a fragrance, I try to examine why I don’t like it and sort out if it is just a matter of personal taste or if the fragrance truly is lame. Here is my list of complaints:

1) The aquatic musk smells really terrible—almost headache inducing. This is a matter of personal taste—doesn’t count.
2) The fragrance is a little ‘top loaded’. It smells great when sprayed on paper—the yuzu, floral, and musk strike a pretty harmony—but it falls apart on the skin. But, it could be worse given that the green tea sticks around for at least an hour, so in that respect it is a moderate fail, not a complete fail.
3) The originality just isn’t there. One can easily find a variety of affordable light tea fragrances, so this just makes me think that Guerlain (LVMH) is finding a lucrative niche and cashing in. Duh.

Complaint number 3 is just too big to ignore.

First of all, whom do we smack for misspelling "Teazzurra" all over Basenotes? There should be two Rs. Anyway, this is another of Thierry Wasser's attempts to make the most "cloudy" smelling fragrances he possibly can. I don't even know how to describe the effect that he seems to aim for so often other than to say it's plush, fluffy, like a big puffy cotton-like cloud. Teazzura is very pleasant and almost smells like something a child or baby would wear. Having never tried his Petite Guerlain, this is sort of what comes to mind when I imagine it.

The top is a nice undefined citrus blend and the "tea" is recognizable, especially for those who tried Tokyo back when it was in production. It's the same tea accord. I admit I was hoping this would be Guerlain's attempt at a Bvlgari-like bright and fresh tea, but it's not at all, it's a smooth and round tea impression made even softer and more round by the addition of chamomile. The citrus, tea, and chamomile are immediately present and as the citrus fades the white musk starts to come out. I personally get little to no jasmine out of this. The middle accord of tea and chamomile with a hint of clean white musk lingers for a nice little while, a couple of hours or so, before starting to fade into a quiet vanilla-musk combination. And that's all!

Overall this is a springtime scent. It's for those days when you might still need a thin jacket when you go outside but the sun is so nice and bright that you want to usher Spring along. This is light enough to work well in the summer too but it's not so much a cooling scent as it is a clean and soothing scent.

This is one AA that I believe is worth the money. There aren't many occasions where I would wear it and it's not perfect, but when it's called for nothing else can take its place.

A simple, linear scent comprised of citrus notes, sweet/grassy tea, & light florals that closes with a vanillic drydown. Lasts about 5 hours on my clothes and you really need to layer it on heavily to get any sillage. Uplifting scent for work, perhaps a picnic, but would probably be lost out in the outdoors. Might be nice on a man but feels more feminine to me.
