Refreshing, invigorating cocktail and balm for the soul
Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca starts very familiar with a note that reminds me of "4711". But nobler, finer, tenderer, more mellow, rounder and less prickly. Sorry dear "4711", that's a fact and we shouldn't forget that you don't play in the same league in terms of price and there are serious differences.

Already the prelude with fresh, bright Neroli and bitter orange is wonderful. Refreshing, invigorating without pungent notes, as they can sometimes be found in citric scents. The lush orange blossom provides floweriness without crushing or suffocating the freshness. It's easy for me to see wood. Very delicate and very soft, not to deprive the fragrance of its lightness.

I don't smell musk, and maybe that's the way it's supposed to be. I could imagine that it was built in for the stability, so the durability.

Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca does not have any large silage and that is certainly the intention. This is a beautiful scent for hot days that no one wants to stun. All the more I am amazed by the stamina, because even after 9 to 10 hours I still notice AANB clearly on me, close to my body, but still with wonderful flowery freshness.

When I have emptied my bottling (many thanks to Greeni07), I will definitely buy this fine fabric, because AANB is refreshing without being fleeting or fluttery and elegant without appearing madam. So scented, you are well prepared for all occasions. Whether it's hot weather, and that doesn't just mean high summer temperatures or calming down fluttering nerves, AANB is an ideal companion anyway.

Jasmine and Orange Blossom: Next up is beer, whiskey and cigars?
Guys, I think I'm getting old. Just now "Jasmins Marzipane" from Lancome converted me that I think Jasmine is really great, so next "Nerolia Bianca" comes around the corner and serves me an irresistible orange blossom. Now I ask myself: Am I on the best way to throw all my dislikes of the last year (tenth) over board? Then I'll probably soon become a cigar-smoking lady drinking wiskey and beer, dressed exclusively in pink, with yolk orange-yellow, permed hair, matching deep black kajal and bright red lipstick. Hmmh, I think I'm gonna have to reconsider....
But back to Nerolia Bianca: For me Neroli is like ginger, pepper, grapefruit a clear request: "Test me! Test me!" the flacons whisper seductively into my ear. And (all too often) they triumph afterwards: "We knew we would accompany you home".
But orange blossoms that are also prominent in the fragrance pyramid? That's a little completely different. Often I find them somewhere from too sweet to too luxuriant and pompously sticky to in the worst case nauseating.
Nerolia Bianca starts off wonderfully bitter-citric: exactly my taste with a summery scent for hot days. My problem with citrus scents is often that the first seconds and minutes are wonderful, but the scent then quickly slips into the dump or woody. With Nerolia Bianca it's different, flowers are added step by step. Is this supposed to be my scared orange blossom? She's very sweet and really just wants to play! The fragrance becomes really (!) flowery, preserves in the background a delicate-bitter-fresh component and becomes fresh-creamy-cuddly with time through musk.
Strictly speaking, Nerolia Bianca is not at all what I expected: I had tested it because I'm looking for a very straightforward, bang fresh hot summer days citrus scent without much development and with great durability.
I found an (unfortunately) irresistible combination of bitter freshness at the beginning, flowery-citric summer elegance in the middle and a delicate clean-cream feeling at the end.

The handicap
Do you know the feeling when your mood is no longer in the cellar, but almost in hell?

That's how I feel on the day when Nerolia Bianca and I should get to know each other.

It's the day of my long-planned vacation that I've been looking forward to for a long, long, long time, until an event should cloud my joy.

But I will be honest with you: at the moment I am even more sensitive, even more jealous, even more vulnerable than usual. Not to mention being annoyed by the fact But also the ostrich-bird tactic doesn't help on some days.

Anyway - when I'm finally standing at the airport on my vacation, I already have my list of perfumes that I want to try out at duty free in my hands.

The summer edition of Light Blue Italian Zest is even more lemony and fresher than the original and I'm struggling to take it with me. When I smell my wrist I have the feeling to have fallen into the pool and to drink a fresh lemonade. He'll be on the watch list.

But also Limon Verde by Guerlain is so lemony, so fresh, so refreshing that my hand always reaches for it again. But in the end he doesn't convince me. I fall a little in love with Dior's Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, mandariny in the beginning, fresh, fresh, fresh and then powdery and almondy-like in the end.

But when I then see Nerolia Bianca in the offer for 40 euros, I reach out blindly. Because Neroli was already at the Yves Rocher classic Secrets de Essences Neroli my creepy kryptonite for spraying and that in the hardest time of my life.

Can Nerolia Bianca also give me super powers? I'll try it out and spray...

It is as if a golden transparent veil in the shape of a beautiful orange blossom dress envelops me.

It's so incredibly soft and cuddles up to me - in a clean, almost erotic form, which however nestles up to me so slowly that I allow it.

Not like with the orange blossom with Love Chloe, where I just feel hardcore powdered, almost femme fatalemäßig and lasziv made up and at the end of the musk ox with a sledgehammer on the head a tongue kiss wants to talk me up
No, it's also not like Chloe in Love, although the Petitgrain and Neroli show a slight similarity in the beginning.

Whereby Chloe in Love develops with the typical detergent note and the amber finish.

The difference is that with Nerolia Bianca the ending of the Love Story also remains beautiful. A clean, slightly sweet, noble powder that stays soft and does not choke at the end, like a Boa Constrictor. No, it is a soft powder which remains light-flooded until the end and embraces, strengthens and gives good mood, as well as inner peace.

I must somehow think of Charles Bukowski's words when he said that if you want to clean up, always start with your own heart. Hmm... How true and how much Nerolia Bianca reminded me of all things when I finally came to rest after all the inner struggle through him.

It is almost as if through Neroli I overcome my own inner handicap and find my way back to myself. As if I realize that no critic and no external circumstances can harm you if you have no enemy in you and keep your inner peace and faith in yourself.

Because remember that at the end of the day there is one person with whom you spend 100% of your time, who you like and whom you should make happy - yourself.

Spicy/Sweet
AA Nerolia Bianca is a spicy neroli, and a bit on the sweet side to my nose. I prefer my neroli to be 'clean and green', so this is not my favorite of the many neroli fragrances I have, but it's a very pretty scent just the same. It incorporates all the elements of the bitter orange tree and has a musk/amber base with a touch of cedar. Amber always presents as very sweet on my skin, and normally I stay away from it, but I can wear it in this fragrance. Longevity is very good, and sillage is moderate.

A classic idea
When surveying the vast sea of neroli fragrances there are several which rise above the surface ("Fleur d'Oranger" or "Safanad" to name just a very few). The new "Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca" is a very predictable scent - in spite of its famous pedigree. "Nerolia Bianca" contains the entire spectrum of neroli, i.e. the oil of the flowers of bitter orange trees plus the remaining orange-flower water. The neroli is balanced by a bit of cedar combined with traces of white musk. So if you seek out distinction, something more than "orange water", you might choose to ignore "Nerolia Bianca". But if you are looking for a clean scent with a single note reminiscent of white sheets drying on a line outside, "Nerolia Bianca" might be worth a try.

Oranges & white flowers at first, then slides into artificial chemical orange tang, like orange-flavoured soda/popsicle. Smells neon orange.+2
