Enjoying oranges on hot days
Hello, my favorite snoopers. Welcome to my latest comment. Today I'm writing about the latest Allegoria fragrance by Guerlain, a very nice fragrance series, which has produced a lot of fragrances in the meantime and therefore there are of course some less successful fragrances among them, but you can still find at least as many very nice fragrances. The Allegoria series is actually one of these perfect fragrance series, where there is something for everyone and you can really enjoy browsing through them, well, actually... unfortunately, it is not the case that all these fragrances are always available.

Unfortunately, most shops do not even have ten different fragrances from this range, but well, that's how it is with many fragrances. Now comes one of the newest fragrances, the "Orange Soleia", which appeals to me by its name, because I like fresh fragrances, especially with oranges in them. And according to the labeling here it is finally unisex again :)

Well then, let's see how it smells, even if the summer should be long gone, but honestly, many people couldn't really enjoy this summer, but maybe you can make a note of the scent for next summer, if it should be nice.

By the way: The name of the fragrance, i.e. Orange Soleia, contains the name Leia, the princess from Star Wars! What, I shouldn't start Star Wars again? *well then don't sigh*, but in the next comment I will talk more about Star Wars, that's what you get from it now, mu ha ha ha ha :DDD

The smell:
Whoa, whoa, whoa! The fragrance starts with a wonderful orange scent, which for me smells like the slightly bitter orange peel as well as the delicious pulp. I can't tell if I'm smelling an orange at the moment or actually a blood orange, but it may be that it's actually a blood orange, because the scent seems to be a little bit different from "normal" oranges and, if I remember correctly, makes me think a little bit of these blood orange juices. Anyway, the beginning is very fresh and citric and therefore wonderful! Peppermint also adds to the freshness of the fragrance, but I can only smell it when I sniff close to the sprayed area.
A little later it still smells of oranges or blood oranges, but a slightly spicy scent is added. There is also a small, sweetish-powdery scent, which comes from the great tonka bean.
In the base, the fragrance surprisingly still smells (faintly) of oranges, slightly tonka bean and tart notes. There are woods in the background. In the later base, the fragrance smells only of oranges and woods, but this is quite pleasant, without becoming stuffy or synthetically unpleasant, as it sometimes is with some fragrances when they have had their best time.
The fragrance is and remains fresh and pleasant and is therefore a wonderful summer scent.

The Sillage and the durability:
The Sillage is rather moderate, as one knows it from many citric scents. For a summer scent it is still good, but you shouldn't expect others to smell it for a long time. But the durability is very surprising, as the scent stayed loosely on my skin for more than 12 hours. Of course, halfway through this time it is already only close to the body, but it is still surprising that you can smell a great orange note on your skin even at this late hour.

The bottle! The bottle is beautiful as always and you get the usual Guerlain bottle. It is filled with a pink scented liquid and, as always, has a dome at the top of the bottle, which is decorated with golden honeycombs. The square label has a golden frame and golden writing and of course shows the name of the scent. All in all as always very nice, but I would have wished for a rather dark red scent liquid to match the fragrance, which would have been a nicer eye-catcher.

Conclusion:
Hmm... this scent actually puts me in a dilemma. Because I like it very much, but the question is, is the fragrance worth it if you already have a great orange scent? Well, you can see that one way or another. I think the fragrance here is worth it, even if I should have the Concentrée d'Orange Verte by Hermès, for example. Because the Hermès scent is extremely citric, it really cleans the skin with its tart scent, drives away all the cats in the area, but does extremely good on hot days. And by hot days I mean those days when once again there are unbearable heat waves well beyond 30 degrees. The scent of Guerlain is more sweet and therefore more usable on not so murderously hot days (but of course you can also use it on very hot days!). So, yes, I think the fragrance would be worthwhile for orange fans, especially since it's also unisex and, if you're a bottle victim as well, the fragrance comes in a great, great bottle!

I don't think I need to mention it now, but I'll do it anyway for all those who haven't checked it yet (and because I always emphasize separately in all comments when I think a fragrance is best to use): Yes, the scent here is a summer scent :D He he,

But there's one more thing I would like to mention: Although I gave the fragrance ten points, I have to say that nothing here is really new scent, but simply a very well done orange/summer scent that orange fans like me could really like. So don't expect anything unusually new or even something complex, just enjoy the great orange notes instead :)

That's it from me again, I wish you all a nice evening and see you next time :)
And yes, you see, I can also write nicely without getting angry about women or even annoying women myself with every sentence :DD

Sun-ripened oranges
My favorite scent for the summer.
A wonderfully refreshing orange scent without being artificial and sweet.
The durability is also quite acceptable compared to the other Aqua allegoria fragrances. Personally, I don't mind that with fresh scents, I like to spray them

Sun-kissed orange grove
In search of a beautiful and original summer scent, I was drawn to the small but well-assorted perfumery in my home town. There it is still possible to have small quantities bottled for testing.
And so, even during these crazy times, you get the chance to test a fragrance extensively and at the same time support the lovingly furnished local retailer.

Full of anticipation, I had the scent bottled before a short summer trip to the lake - the scents sounded dreamlike - it just had to suit me.

And indeed, right after the first test spray on my wrist the most wonderful blood orange note together with a dash of tangy bergamot went up my nose. Sure thing, the new Guerlain is used directly for the all-round test. Two sprays on the neck, one on the bandana. Let's see how it performs throughout the day.

While driving in a heated car the natural orange scent refreshes. But the orange is not sweet here, it is rather tart, maybe even a bit bitter. It is wonderful in the heat.
During the walk at the lake the soft wind drives up again and again light scent wafts from my summer scarf. The orange becomes softer, sweeter, less tart in the course of the walk. But a slight bitter note remains.
After about 5 hours the fragrance - very typical citrus - is finally hardly noticeable.
Conclusion: Orange Soleia is wonderfully natural and at the same time pleasantly different due to its bitter, tart note. Freshly plucked blood orange which was filled into a bottle together with its peel and foliage with the addition of a minimal dose of mint. Shelf life and sillage are restrained, but ok.
Anyway, I have found my summer scent for this year!

Blood orange juice
The scent deserves a comment.
Because it smells like freshly squeezed orange juice.
And today especially exclusive:
Blood orange juice
Citrusy, refreshing, sweetish.
And yet this fragrance possesses a profoundly bitter note.
This must be the rind of the blood orange.

The peppermint appears a little later and then only slightly.
Bergamot can also be recognized, but the focus is actually on the blood orange.
I find the scent very authentic Especially the top note is the madness.
Really have the feeling someone would cut open a blood orange and press it
The durability on my dry skin is a good 3h.

I can sign for unisex.
Perfect for the summer!
