Lavender Summer
The sky is wide and of that incomparable velvety hue that announces the approaching evening; another hot summer day is thus slowly making itself ready for night.
The sun-warmed earth seems to stretch itself comfortably, humming with well-being.
This puts it in competition with the myriad insects that gather now with particular intensity: a contented hum is in the air.
It is also the time of the swallows: they are "training" this year's young for the flight south, always diligently accompanied by their bright chirping.
The circles and loops they draw in the sky grow more sure and elaborate by the day; the formerly squeaky voices of the swallows' children louder.
It will not be long before they are on the move: Swallows come late in the spring and leave early, almost late in the summer.
They are as reliable as sundials.

Nature sets up for the "blue hour": pine trees offer cicadas comfortable places for their "concerts", lavender fields sway gleefully in the light summer breeze.
How fortunate that the insects that frequent them, especially now, don't get seasick.
(Or do they and we just don't know it?)

At this time the earth breathes peace; the powdery breeze of iris settles over the hitherto vibrant day, muting it and inviting us to linger, to switch off.
Now the full fragrance of the numerous lavender plants also awakens: row and row fill them, reaching far into the horizon.
Not only their flower panicles are fragrant, but foliage and wood also give off that familiar, spicy aroma.
It comforts and caresses, embraces and spreads that tenderness that goes hand in hand with the waning of daylight.
Lavender spreads its soft dark purple and silver patterned blanket, woven by the caressing hands of "Mother Nature."
On this so inviting blanket, the little violet stretches out; does it also want to contribute in color and fragrance to the already existing beauty of this fragrance painting.
Sandalwood is here representative of the heavy spice of the earth; vanilla brings a warming creamy-white light jacket and awakens the senses at the same time.
Fragrance, texture, color and tones combine harmoniously and incomparably to create "Aqua Allegoria Lavande Velours," where once again the artistic and loving hand of Jean-Paul Guerlain can be felt.
Which unfortunately, like so many others, had to give way to newer creations: whether these are so much better / more beautiful, remains a secret of the house of Guerlain.

Sillage and durability of this fragrance fabric correspond to the duration of dusk:
Nothing is infinite! So why her?
Before the night spreads and covers everything protectively, it is the time for "Aqua Allegoria Lanvande Velours":
It is the time of the lavender summer!

Old love
Once upon a time there was a little curious girl who liked to search the handbags of the female family members. She found what she was looking for at her grandmother's. A little bottle with an inscription she couldn't read back then. The opening of the bottle was easy and he got a wonderful lovely flower scent from which she couldn't get enough.
Today I know that it was Mouson "Ancient Lavender" that I discovered in Grandma's pocket. The love for the lavender scent has remained and when I found the "Lavande Velours" at the Aqua Allegorias years ago, it was as if I was taken back to my childhood. A cloud of the finest lavender scent, clear, lush, sweet! In our garden I have some lavender perennials, there are pink (yes, there is!), blue and white lavender. The bumblebees love it, if you cut it off, this wonderful aroma unfolds from the stems and flowers. With "Lavande Velours", this lush lavender aroma is first of all herbaceous and somewhat more bitter, but after a very short time it unfolds into pure sweetness, soft and for me also elegant on the skin. The iris is still hiding a bit, but then it comes out a bit shamefaced. In the base note, the vanilla caresses the lavender and both enter into a fragrance alliance. The scent of "Lavande Velours" stays with me, sprayed on in the morning, until the evening hours, attenuated but definitely perceptible.
I'd like to confess: "Old sweetheart, doesn't rust!"

Gonna wash it off
I had put in on but can't stand the smell any longer, I have to wash this off, I really don't like it, that is gonna be a "give away" to one of my friends...at least if one can stand it..For me it makes me think of..cleaning products, Savon du Marseille, ..airfreshners, it definitely makes me think of the Provence and the French Riviera, where I spend a couple of months a year but more like the smells in the bathrooms, refreshers etc...not as a perfume

A Pre-Y2K Aqua Allegoria = Simple, Natural, Beautiful
Aqua Allegoria LAVANDE VELOURS, as its name promises, offers a thick blanket of lavender. Lavender lovers will rejoice in the presence of this scent, which is strong without being overwhelming. But this is really all about lavender, moderated only slightly by violet, iris, and vanilla.

Although it is a full-fledged edt, I sometimes spray LAVANDE VELOURS on my pillow before going to sleep for very sweet dreams. (It also seems to calm my cat, who has superior powers of olfaction...) I awaken in the morning to find myself still cradled in lush lavender.

Lavender serves another functional purpose as well: it fends off mosquitoes without poisoning the wearer. Be sure to take a heavily lavender-laden spray such as LAVANDE VELOURS with you on your next trip to Africa!

Aqua Allegoria Lavande Velours
This is pure Lavender at it's fineset
Lavender is known for Positive qualities
like releaving insect bites headaches
and insomnia and it's calming. to me
this is more up lifting then calming
so i don't agree with the calming aspect
of Lavender.
At first 10 minutes lavender drowns out
the other notes the drydown is an a little dissapointing because it's very
hard to detect the other notes mainly
for the dominace of Lavander but i do smell a faint vanilla note but that's
all.
