    Default New Fragrance: Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Lys Soleia

    From nstperfume.com:

    Guerlain will launch Lys Soleia, the latest addition to their Aqua Allegoria range, this spring. The new fragrance for women is meant to evoke the caress of the sun on the skin.

    Lys Soleia is a solar floral; the notes include bergamot, lemon, palm leaves, ylang-ylang, lily, tropical fruit, tuberose, vanilla and white musk.

    Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Lys Soleia will be available in 75 and 125 ml Eau de Toilette.

    I like the sound of that one. I'll be trying it, too. I actually haven't tried any AAs in the past year or two.

    Ever since Sephora around here stopped carrying the Aqua Allegoria line, I haven't smelled any of the the new ones-- none in the past several years.

    What stores carry the line these days?

    Thank you Fleurine, hopefully it will be soon. All I could find is that it will be released in the spring.

    Any word yet on this? There is one + review in the FD. I keep hearing good buzz about it.

    ***Buzz including a comparison to the Guerlain scent Voila Pourquoi J'aimais Rosine

    It had an 'amber hued' slightly yeasty, warm bread crust mood for me. I blasted it on paper and my wrist at Duty Free and had an hour to get to know it a bit before boarding (although my time was divided because I had Bouquet de Mai on the other hand). The word 'solar' makes sense, and it didn't strike me as featuring any particular floral, more a heady mix of notes in a humid climate. The one key allusion I could make was that of being a very refined, delicate nod towards Jeux de Peau . . . come to think of it, 'sun on skin', 'skin games?

    Bouquet de Mai is cooler but not overtly lilyish (as the name might suggest). It had a sort of violet mood, a bit Apres l'Ondeeish in demeanour but brighter. This one was still quite arresting on paper 12 hours later when I reached the hotel and I was almost tempted to buy it on the way back but in the end I skipped both.

    I'll spend a bit more time with Lys when it turns up here at the counter, Mai is a 'Travel Exclusive', only at DFS.

    Mon plaisir et merci

    You know, I tended to be a bit dismissive of the A.A line in the past because apart from Mathilde Laurent's Herba Fresca they seemed a bit seasonal tee shirtish but after reading J.P. Guerlain's recent mini-book I have made an effort to try and appreciate what's going on with them because he clearly made use of them as a way to sketch an idea or convey a fleeting impression. They are not meant to be the second coming of Djedi or Mitsouko and it's only now that my own snobbery has abated enough to just take them as they are.

    I think Lys could be a really fun one for summer if you're in the mood. It does what it says - as a kid I remember noticing 'grown up women' having a particular scent to their skin during summer holidays, after a long day getting a tan and I wonder if Thierry Wasser and Serge Lutens might have both stumbled onto the same way of expressing that, albeit with their own respective styles. And the Bouquet de Mai is a very clear, bright nod to Guerlain's cooler side - it actually reminds me a lot of the violet spray giveaway to scent your pillows etc. (Voile de Poudre Home Ambience) I got a while back. Very cooling and, as mentioned, not fleeting by any means - it actually was blossoming on paper that night. It struck me as a purer piece of work than Lys, more of an impression than a conversation.

    Both well worth a shot and at that price point a good bang for your buck, I think.

    Thank you, JC. I am intrigued by the ylang.

    I thought Sephora does carry AA?

    Thanks Mr. R for the update!

    I did get to try it, and was surprised how much lily I actually got from it. A very pretty floral.

    Thanks, Mr. Reasonable. That cool violet Bouquet de Mai is appealing to me – too bad I’m not likely to see it! I have no international travel plans. I’m sure I will manage to console myself, though!

    I sampled recently in store. Definitely on my to buy list. The best solar since Voile d'ete. Better than any of the Bronze Goddess range.

    Lots of white floral but with sumptuous solar skin and surprisingly long lasting

    All the fuss around Petit Robe Noir and released quietly into the AA line is what I consider to be one of the best female fragrances by Guerlain for a long while. The lily is perfectly smoothed with lovely vanilla and the genius is the touch of palm oil which gives an impression of suntan oil on beautiful languid bodies which have spent the day soaking up the sun. Love this.

    Agreed. It's a fantastic fragrance (my favourite in the Aqua Allegoria) line, and it's only a matter of time before I pick up a bottle.
