Wearing (from a decant from 30 Roses):
Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia by Guerlain
That hit of jasmine, in the top, is almost narcotic. It brought a smile to my face when I sprayed it on. To quote helg from Perfume Shrine (who is a big fan of AAFN):Guerlain captured the ethereal vapors of steam off these delicate, ravishing blossoms and married them to a pre-emptying summer jasmine (middle-ground indolic) and the faint whiff of cool frankincense burning inside a Greek Orthodox church preparing for the country's most devout celebration: Easter. The citrusy aspects of frankincense compliment the fruitier aspects of neroli. Musk in the form of synthetic Cashmeran is anchoring the effect on skin. Guerlain's Flora Nerolia (a part of the original line up in the Aqua Allegoria line in 2000 composed by perfumer Mathilde Laurent) is like a snapshot of late Lent in Greece and for that reason is absolutely precious to me.
