Aqua Allegoria Laurier-Reglisse by Guerlain
I sampled this multiple times to see if I'm missing something here. My subsequent samplings have differed from my original opinion ( which was done hastily I might add). The last few wears have resulted in this review.
The opening accord is a citric floral that's actually pretty good. Too bad it doesn't last more than a few minutes. The listed notes don't jive with what I am smelling....and this is why I sampled it so many times.
The heart accord seems to be an ozonic floral with a dash of musk. I get no listed licorice or amber as some other reviewers have, nor bay leaf or violet. What I get in totality after the opening accord is a transparent ozonic floral that has a wispy musk and a hint of green. It smells a tad cheap....which shocks me since this is a Guerlain....and is basically a boring scent that smells acceptable......and I am being magnanimous in saying that.
