Ginger Piccante, when ginger joins Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria collection
Since 1828, Guerlain has fascinated the world with its creative daring and its passion for smells passed down from generation to generation. Endowed with indisputable know-how, Guerlain has been sublimating the world of perfumery for nearly two centuries. Of course, the brand has creations that have become legend, such as Shalimar, Habit Rouge or La Petite Robe Noire. In addition to these olfactory icons, Guerlain also develops scent collections, bringing together several juices with the same philosophy. The Aqua Allegoria are fresh and natural waters. Today, this range is enriched with three newcomers. In addition to the Flora Cherrysia fragrance , Ginger Piccante is one of the essences of this new trio and highlights the scent of ginger.
Aqua Allegoria, when Guerlain pays homage to nature
Launched just 20 years ago with Pamplelune and Herba Fresca fragrances , Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria collection continues to grow year after year. Each of the juices that compose it pays homage to a very specific part of the globe, by deploying a typical scent of a particular country. Aqua Allegoria perfumes are like “raw materials, captured in fine weather and in the middle of nature, at random in a garden, a wood or a beach, here or at the end of the world”. This time, in this year 2019, Guerlain has chosen to focus on the exotic. Ginger here evokes the distant lands of Asia. The result is a free, fresh and lively fragrance, endowed with an indomitable ardor while preserving an undeniable elegance.
Guerlain’s Bee Bottle shines with a solar glow
While each Aqua Allegoria dares to have a very different scent, they all have the same bottle in common. Moreover, this bottle was not chosen at random and reappropriates the mythical Flacon aux Abeilles by Guerlain, originally designed in 1853. The Aqua Allegoria are like a dive in time and in the heritage of one of the largest French brands. The bottle of Ginger Piccante forms a smooth glass cylinder in which a golden juice is reflected. The whole is surmounted by a finely chiseled dome, also covered with a gold lacquer. With Ginger Piccante, everything is harmony and refinement. A metallic ball then overhangs the whole, while being engraved in relief with the iconic Guerlain bee.
The aphrodisiac breath of ginger at the heart of Ginger Piccante
But then, what about the scent of this new perfume . Aqua Allegoria Ginger Piccante revolves primarily around ginger, an ingredient known for its peppery and aphrodisiac flavor. Here, the ginger is first of all infinitely fresh and invigorating. It is accompanied by a zesty odor of bergamot and lemon. Then, this initial freshness is quickly counterbalanced by the more incandescent heat of the pepper. The heart of Ginger Piccante then envelops in a more romantic rose. Finally, a cedar base further reinforces the character and depth of this essence. Undoubtedly, Ginger Piccante is a fragrance that does not lack bite !
