Sour grapefruit
Looking for sour realistic passionfruit or grapefruit smell? You dont need to look any further! Here is Aqua allegoria passiflora! I had mini cologne version coming with my ysl black opium edt. So my comments based on mini version. Not pyramidal scent, more linear type. Also not complex, so basic style. Zesty sour grapefruit and bit passionfruit. Season= much more spring and summer days. Hot climate.

A Night Wisp - but what a light!
Passiflora is the Latin technical term for passion flowers.

"Flower" is Passiflora only on the edge, because the fruit notes clearly dominate both in the head and in the heart note. Even the citric component and the aquatic note on which the fruit notes float are more present than the flowers. But passion - yes, the name keeps what it promises.

Passiflora is fruity and sweet without squeaking. Lemon and aquatic notes successfully prevent it from slipping into banal sweetness. It is even noble, but - and this must be emphasized in a particularly positive way - not so noble that one never dares to put it on. Some fragrances are such an orchestra that they can only be worn appropriately in the opera - and thus rarely, even as an opera enthusiast. Passiflora, on the other hand, is not a fragrance that makes you ponder in front of your perfume cupboard in the morning whether you're applying it a little too thickly. Because he has class, but subtle class. His strength does not come at the expense of his femininity; he is like a figure skater - strong and at the same time immortal beautiful.

Passiflora is one of those fragrances that not only appeals to the sense of smell, but also moves something in the soul. With Passiflora, I just feel confident. When I need encouragement, I put it on and sniff at my wrist - BÄM, there she is, the certainty that I can do anything. There are very few fragrances that can do that.

Summer to go
This fragrance is like a summer embrace, very light, very fresh and yet powdery. You can still perceive this scent during the day like a soft background noise.
For me personally, this passion fruit scent is nothing, although I must confess that this composition has been incredibly successful for Guerlain and makes the citrus scent incredibly pleasant and bearable.

A nice passion fruit...!
As so often, there are some new Aqua Allegoria fragrances from Guerlain. One of them is this Maracuja scent, which I almost had trouble spraying on myself. However, despite the weekend (Saturday) the shop was rather empty the other day, so there was only one saleswoman in the Guerlain department.

...and whoa! She was pretty! So pretty that my brain spent almost the entire conversation with her endlessly bombarding me with phrases that sounded something like:
"She is pretty and sweet! Whoa, she's pretty and sweet"
"She is pretty and sweet! Whoa, she's pretty and sweet"
"She is pretty and sweet! Whoa, she's pretty and sweet"
"She's pretty and..." ...you know what I mean...

So I tried not to listen to you guys and not to say something like "I'm looking for a fragrance for my girlfriend" again while looking at women's fragrances, so that she couldn't think "Well, he already has a girlfriend",... waaaah! No! Instead, I couldn't say anything but talk about scents and bla bla bla... I don't even remember what I said before I left (while I still had the scent of her on my arm! Heh heh heh),... hopefully I didn't say absolutely stupid things,... argh! D

Since my brain keeps telling me "She is pretty and sweet! Boah die ist hübsch und süß" (instead of humming the Tetris melody as usual...) and therefore I couldn't think properly anymore, I hopefully didn't say something stupid like "Ah, a passion fruit is really pretty!" or something like that, while I was sniffing the beautiful scent of the passion fruit and at the same time looking into the pretty face of the saleswoman, mist mist mist mist!!!
Well, anyway, it was good that I had this scent sprayed on me to test it, because in my nervousness I would probably have dropped the bottle otherwise...!
In addition, I can now also present you this fragrance here, which is not soo unusual now, but has become a very nice smelling fragrance.

The smell:
Hmm,... you can smell a nice fruity passion fruit right at the beginning, which also has a nice, sweet aura. The top note actually only smells of the passion fruit, and only gradually a tangy grapefruit is added, which goes very well with the sweet-smelling passion fruit and intensifies the impression of a good-humoured summer scent.
The aquatic notes are somehow less intense, but they are fragrant. The ylang-ylang (which somehow seems to be part of every new fragrance or flanker lately...) has turned out weak here, which I like, because otherwise it would have had a too sultry aura, which would have spoiled the freshness of the fragrance (in my opinion, anyway). Anyway, I think that Ylang-Ylang doesn't fit to fragrances that are meant for spring and summer at all!
Otherwise, the fragrance remains fresh, slightly flowery, fruity-sweetish, and simply beautiful!

The Sillage and the durability:
The Sillage is moderately unusual, but this is what you are used to with most Aqua Allegorias or summer scents in general. Therefore it will hardly be possible to smell it except in the vicinity. The shelf life is also short and it smells just about three to four hours before it gets weaker and weaker.

The bottle! The flacon comes in the well-known "bee flacon", only here no bees have been worked into the glass. Nevertheless, the flacon with its cylindrical shape and domed top looks very beautiful, because the golden honeycomb decorates the flacon and the light pink scent liquid additionally contributes to a visually more beautiful pleasure. The cap is gold-plated and round. The label is square and white, and while the brand name is written in gold, the name of the fragrance, Passiflora, is written in purple. A beautiful flacon!

"She is pretty and sweet! Whoa, she's pretty and sweet"
...shut up brain! What was I gonna say? Oh, yes.. Aaah, the smell is nice!.. pretty! I mean LOVELY!!! *sigh*

The fragrance has been created perfectly for the summer, because it is airy and light, sweet and beautiful, a good mood fragrance that you can and should spray on yourself over and over again, because it doesn't last that long.

It can be used very well during the day, perhaps also when going out, whereby one would have to spray oneself here and there as described above. Be that as it may, despite the nice scent, one should still know that the scent itself is quite simple. It's nothing breathtakingly new, nothing really exciting, not something that hasn't been done hundreds of times before by other brands... BUT: But this fragrance is, as so often, of the usual good Guerlain quality, which means that apart from the beautiful scent it has no disturbing synthetics, comes in a nice bottle and is one of those fragrances where you start smiling while sniffing it because it's so nice! As I said, a good mood fragrance just!
Therefore I would recommend everyone here to test this scent here, it could be worth it! Especially in this beautiful weather!

And I'm sure that the scent should suit you ladies really well, ah... you know, so delicious, fresh, yammi to bite! Aaargh, maybe I should have told the saleswoman that she would have to smell great with it (and then she would have rolled her eyes, because she's probably hearing that 100 times a day from some guys... aaaaargh...).
But noooo, this stupid guy here must be shy again, so that not a word came out of him (except probably stupid babbling)... um... I have to sigh again: *seeeeeeeeeuffzzfzffz* Hrm, aaaargh... um, is it possible that I'm screaming too much today and stuff? DD

Anyway, go test it! And put a smile on your faces, because just now in this beautiful weather you can use SO one fragrance absolutely perfectly :)

Watery passionfruit (slightly synthetic) with a lot of grapefruit. Aquatic note is strong and reminds me of 90s men's fragrances. Not bad.
