Reviews of Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca

Gross. Mint over a blindingly-strong soapy musk.

Very beautiful, fresh green scent that paints the picture of sauntering in a lush garden.

This "fresh herb" fragrance is a delightful romp into natural, invigorating green leaf and floral notes touched with lemon in the opening. Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca by Guerlain is minty, breezy, and crisp while it lasts (not too long on my skin, alas :-/ ).

Other than the longevity issue, I am quite moved by this Aqua Allegoria edition.

Starts of lovely and fresh then recedes to damp spa tissue paper with emphasis on damp and tissue. Saved by a hint of clover and mint . It reminds me of a very toned down CDG Hinoki but without the character or hutspa. If you do it do it properly.

Fragrance: 6.5/10
Projection: 7/10
Longevity 7.5/10

I love the minty herbal grassy mix in this EDT especially in extreme heat. It smell so authentically natural and yet refreshes. It is an EDT so I don't expect it to last more than a few hours. At the price point, that's reasonable. It's still a very quality scent from a good house. As always, it's only my opinion and YMMV.

This smells typical of guerlain, the balance and intricate blending of notes are becoming so recognisable to me from this house. The way the spearmint and lemon are blended is as close to perfection as you will ever find in perfumery of those two notes together, the clover leaf and green tea give this a french garden feel or an olfactory memory of playing in fields and woodlands as a child. What more could you ask for from a perfumery, setting out to create a fragrance that gives an olfactory experience for the wearer and achieving it's goal easily. Herba fresca is almost surreal, it's dejavu in a bottle've been there before at some point but you can't quite pin point when. Performance is light and fleeting but has a bit of staying power (3hrs on my skin), it shouldn't be any other way really..the whole experience would be ruined otherwise. Stunning creation!!

Lovely green and aromatic scent - nothing to add to what others have said here in terms of notes. I really enjoy it - it makes me feel instantly refreshed. Unfortunately, despite reasonable sillage (considering it's a fresh EDT), the performance is pretty poor. Over-spraying can get me 30 mins of a relatively full scent, but witin another hour, it's vanished without trace. Despte this, it's a lovely fragrance - easily good enough to warrant a thumbs up - and I'm happy to spritz it with abandon, considering that it can be found as cheap as chips on auction sites.
