I am so happy to be the owner of a mini bottle of this! Guerlain Aqua Allegoria 75 ml. I have Limon Verde (sugary lime very similar to Light Blue Italian Zest). Over ripe (almost fermented) grapefruit and neroli add juicy sweetness while petitgrain balances with fresh astringency. this is absolutely great for citrus lovers and honestly I didn't except it to be anything imperfect. Its not my favourite scent but it is definetly not your typical citrus fragrance! There is huge contrast to how the fragrance opens and closes. I read all the reviews. This one must smell different on different people, more than most. As for the silage, it does provide a decent silage for a citrus based perfume. But, if 'cat pee' does indeed smell like this, then I would envy them for smelling really fresh and fruity. Guerlain's aqua allegoria collection doesn't disappoint. Citrusy, fresh and bitter. I have Nerolia Bianca (mega-sharp neroli peel good for layering with any sweet orange perfumes). Grapefruit bomb, lemon and bergamot underneath. It's stunning and very pleasant. To his nose it smelled alot citrus, no cat pee at all. It is a fizzy vibrant grapefruit balanced with bergamot.

Beautiful sparkling grapefruit atop a warm base of vanilla and patchouli. Pamplelune isn’t the natural smell I was looking for, but I do like it and it will probably be unintrusive enough for hiking. I only wish it lasted a bit longer. This is sparkling, fizzy and dynamic. On the other hand, she thought it smelled like cat pee. Very nice citrusy grapefruit. C'est la vie! Just does not mix well with my chemistry. At the time, the patchouli bothered me. And, to my great despair, from my skin I get... yes, that's right - cat pee. • Poor longevity but too many sprays and you'll gas yourself out. Any Grapefruit note on me smells awful; Cat pee & B.O. I sprayed it, and loved it instantly! It really lifts spirits and sparkles. Someone gave me her partially used bottle of Pamplelune last spring, and for the longest time all I could detect in it was grapefruit, from the realistically bitter opening almost to the end. I love the smell so so much but it lasts only 1-2 hours so I am very disappointed in that regard. I was so excited I bought it. It wouldn't be out of place in the Hermes cologne collection. and off I go to wash it off. In my search for summer fragrances, Pamplelune has been there in the background. Try it before you buy it. Relaxing and inviting. I think this one fits gourmand category and will be quite cozy in a colder weather. Total mood enhancer....can't wait to try the cinnamon tip offered by other reviewer.

It was around an hour ago that I sprayed it. Best grapefruit note I´ve ever smelt, after the fresh opening there is something a little "dirty" in the base, which I tend to find interestering in a perfume. It's long lasting when sprayed on clothes, very fresh, and makes me drift away every time I smell it. I blind bought pamplelune because I was looking for a natural smelling fragrance for hiking.

Perfumes: 63893 Very energising and bright, but a bit more simple than I would have liked. The guiding thread of the collection is bergamot, a precious citrus fruit, “Calabrian green gold”, a key ingredient in the Guerlinade. Olive trees kneeing. I'm still not sure if a close resemblance to a natural thing is a good way of doing a perfume. This is enough to make Pamplelune an elegant, interesting perfume instead of just uplifting aroma therapy (like that one note Body Shop Pink Grapefruit, that I also love, but that doesn't really qualify as a perfume). The acedity, the sweetness and the bitterness are perfectly balanced to create a sparkling and pleasant citrus scent. It does. Aqua Allegoria Granada Salvia is een aromatische, fruitige geur voor heren en dames. I find it slightly sweet, sheer, and easy to wear. I can actually envision the smell of opening a ripe juicy grapefruit. I never thought I would like "bitter grapefruit", as someone commented here, but i do. I was afraid it would a very flat, straight up bitter, masculine grapefruit and bergamot but not at all, Guerlain doesn’t disappoint. lekker winkelen zonder zorgen. One note is too playful in this perfume. tried this on my skin yesterday. Very sparkly opening - an in-your-face grapefruit zest that manages to not be obnoxious because it is so natural. I started by using a mandarin orange shower gel then spritz this on before dressing ( hope that is not TMI). It opens with a bright, clean, citrus scent. I wanted to love this, as it has all the notes I love. I think the gold (even though any perfume in the Aqua Allegoria line comes with the same bottle with a different logo) on the bottle goes very well with the concept of grapefruit. I was able to enjoy it for several weeks when, to my dismay, it suddenly turned into the dreaded cat pee on me. eccellente! I find it such a welcome escape from the too many sweet scents I encounter every day. Maybe the drab weather made me look for an olfactory pick-me-up. Call me crazy, but Pamplelune smells EXACTLY like BON PARI hard candies by Nestle. I do love the citrus note, but like others the cat urine factor kicks in. I found it extremely sour on the blotter, especially initially, but when I sprayed it on my skin, it wasn't sour at all, just tart, semi-sweet grapefruit. It is a yummy fragrance, that reminds me of spring mornings. This is a realistically bitter and juicy grapefruit and black currant scent with a bone-dry oriental vanilla-patch drydown. This smells just like grapefruit x ginger soda to me. It's quite an enjoyable scent to have actually! But I won't buy it again. Other, mostly complementary bitter green notes give it a lot of extra depth, without really being distinctly present. Another way to prevent getting this page in the future is to use Privacy Pass. From the bottle I get gorgeous, natural, extremely invigorating mix of bitter grapefruit and citrusy petitgrain, complemented by heavenly, rough black currant leaves. But then a bitterness takes over which could be the neroli, grapefruit, bergamot or all three. Norway 13 degres, Rome 38. A pity! First spray - fresh grapefruit and bergamot then.........warm moist and I'm afraid yes a little like a sweaty blouse with old perfume on. The Petitgrain is also quite noticeable on me, giving it a rosy, green note that I love. On me it smells a bit sweet and very fruity (probably the grapefruit is to blame). I can wear this because I can wear black currant notes. It is just straight up grapefruit, but it also smells synthetic...almost like harsh household cleaner. Top notes last the usual citrus half hours, but there's a lovely sweet patch-vanilla drydown. But it goes through many phases, there is the sweat smell, which is a very primitive attraction for some, somewhat sexual somehow, then it goes to the lovely velvety undertones which are sensual and comforting. This blossoms into a more lemony grapefruit scent. A first the grapefruit was prominent and this was pleasant, as the perfume developed, it became a sweeter, more delicate smell and this works well with my skin. Not a fan; I dislike it on everyone, as it is a loud scent to me. I haven't tried it, until now though. I found a gift set of minature Guerlain Eau de toilette, in this perfume, Shalimar, Samsara and Champs Elysees. Pamplelune smells of bitter grapefruit and hints of sweet vanilla. About half an hour later, it becomes a skin scent, and turns a bit odd on my skin... too sour. He said no. The nose behind this fragrance is Thierry Wasser.

Please read the Terms of Service and Privacy policy. It is VERY citrusy, it smells of super sour grapefruit and isn't becoming much sweeter as it dries down. It has a 'green heady' feel which I'm not fond of. An uplifting heady fizz with no bitter tang at all. I don't know if it's the atomizer or what but WHOA! i tried to and want to like this line, but it just doesnt work for me. One of the relatively few accurate grapefruit scents out there. The vanilla and sandalwood are warm and rich without taking away from the summery, bright feel. The citrus opening is quite sharp and spicy. Although, I don't know if I would buy this after my sample is gone because it does smell a bit like a really expensive bathroom spray. It is the first citrus fragrance I have ever tried that had any longevity and I find that the citrusy top notes stay radiant and fresh (juicy) whereas normally citrusy notes turn very bitter on me(like old fruit peel). If not, I might resort to using it as a room spray. On me this then turns into a sweeter citrus with just a shade of vanilla. Performance on me is pretty poor,,,,2hrs max....but the magnificence of the fragrance still makes it full bottle worthy...Perfect for after the shower on a warm day ....10/10. Citrus-sweet fruity. Without the bitter note that comes from the pith. The opening is actually very lovely - fresh zesty grapefruit with a tinge of sugar. I do love the citrus note, but like others the cat urine factor kicks in. Nice. I am glad I am not alone in finding cat pee all over this one. If my cat's pee would smell like this, I would force that cat to drink so it could urinate all day on my clothes. Got the 15 ml edt purse spray. A bit of a one note wonder, not complex enough for me. I've enjoyed it but not passionately - it was kinda nice, light citrus but nothing special. Oh, glorious grapefruit. Besides, it reminds a little bit a scent of cat's... eh... prank (to say more delicate) sometimes!:). No vanilla at all thank god. I know now to ALWAYS check the reviews on Fragrantica. I don't think I'd experienced such a realistic grapefruit top note and was not expecting the blackcurrant, patchouli and vanilla that followed. Initially, I didn't like Pamplelune because all I got on initial spray was flat grapefruit. Aqua Allegoria eau de toilettes are created mainly for women, although, some of them might as well be used by men. It was created in 1999. Not sour, not bitter, but not sweet either.

Geschikt voor: Vrouwen, Seizoen: Zomer, Inhoud: 125 ml I loved the grapefruit of Clinique Happy but it was lacking in some sophistication. Grapefruits have a number of notes: sweet, sharp and bitter are the most prominent. The opening is pleasant like cold grapefruit juice. I got many compliments wearing it, it's bitter-sweet grapefruit wrapped in warm vanilla.Dry down is very pleasant, warms the skin. The opening grapefruit is epic, and then that darn patchouli shows up and ruins the whole party for me. This is a no-frills grapefruit scent, with tart true grapefruit and a hint of petitgrain and cassis giving a nice slight aromatic background. I decided to try Pamplelune first, to see if I could get over my "fear" of grapefruit in perfume (instilled in me by a horrible experience with Clinique Happy when I was a teen). The nose behind this fragrance is Thierry Wasser. Maybe it won't evolve this way if it isn't in contact with my skin. As the fragrance dries down I see where some people may get that cat odor because of the patch. I get a fabulous burst of a perfect grapefruit, wonderful, yummy, realistic...then it lightens and I smell a bit of pettigrain...then it fades quickly, leaving the faintest hint that a fragrance had recently been there. However, it's got a nice fresh grapefruit flavour to it, nice for gardening or to freshen up on a summer's day. Your IP: 94.23.31.185 And that's about the short life of this fragrance. In the middle it becomes almoust gourmand as the vanila gives the fragrance popsicle vibe that reminded me amen ultra zest- this is unisex. I give you that it could be sharp. Harsh, acrid.

Recently, though, I've learned to pick out and very much enjoy the interplay with the other notes, and now I actually think it's lovely. De Guerlain-parfumeur creëert ieder jaar een Aqua Allegoria-geur met de frisheid van een cologne en de kracht van een Guerlain-parfum. This should be a fresh, clean, happy unisex Citrus cologne. I am a citrus fragrance hater and love this. the longevity and projection is very short comparing to the general eau de toilettes out there. I bought a full bottle online after sampling at a duty-free shop, then read the “cat pee” reviews and got worried. I can smell citrus and freshness too. Then last week I finally found a big bottle on sale with atomizer (75ml). I do get just a bit of the peel and pith of a grapefruit. Well this is what Pamplelune smells like. clean, fresh grapefruit and bergamot. Sooo yummy! On paper this smelt really great!! Wish I could smell it on someone with the right chemistry. It smelled like hand sanitizer...really flat and citric, sour and soapy. It's a grapefruit bomb, I think this one very much depends on the wearer's body chemistry, it's wonderful on some and down right nasty on others, personally I like it, I like the 'true' grapefruit aspect of it, it's so accurate, longevity is great, the aqua allegoria bottles are nice too. So normally I can buy perfume if I like it on the stick. Anyway, this is a unique, authentic grapefruit scent - I don't get any cat pee or ammonia vibe at all, but I can see how the tartness could turn to that on some people. I like the background sharpness of blackcurrant leaves - it can smell urinous to/on some skin but on me it smells tart enough to suck the saliva out of your mouth and adds a green kick. @missk, my pamplelune is from 2016 and i live in tropical country, heat and humid mostly all year round. Ten minutes later...womp, womp. However, if you think it is, and if you like grapefruit smell, you really have to try this one. Im in love with this, even though Im a man, Id seriosly concider wearing it, its just so natural and well done! As fresh and as pure a grapefruit as I have ever smelled, even moreso than Jo Malone. Try it on the skin before judging it - I was initially deterred by the cat-pee comparison but not for long! Sun in the rain. I think it is a very complex fragrance. l'odore è freschissimo e si assesta dopo ore su un timido patchouli. but when i sprayed it onto my skin, it just went sour and more sour. At first I thought this was going to be my least favourite Aqua Allegoria (of the ones I tried). It has kinship with Eau de Hadrien in that it doesn't carry unnecessary sweetness but my summertime fix is Eau du Sud. I can see how this might not work for all skin types but I think its still worth a try for citrus lovers. It does smell like cat pee. It's like a summery fruit cocktail. Then it gets sweeter and better. It becomes a very subtle skin scent (nearly gone) in about an hour. Only the barest hint of petit grain ten minutes later -- even then I have to bury my nose as far into my flesh as possible to catch a whiff. This is in a perfumey way, though -- I do not think it could be reasonably mistaken for a person's actual sweaty armpit.

I did a grapefruit comparison, and Guerlain's Acqua Allegoria Pamplelune smells much less realistic than Eau de Pamplemousee Rose by Hermes. A summer fav! I could see how this scent could turn on you if you don't have the right chemistry but if you do.....wow. fantastico! Later come some floral notes and then vanilla and earthy patchouli. Your divine tarte, lip puckering fragrance is not for everyone. It's very citrusy and minty at first then I got warm fresh sweety notes. I believe it must smell bad to some people but to those who smell cat pee: you also have to believe those of us for whom it smells absolutely beautiful, a full-on masterpiece and a true classic Guerlain in it's subtlety and complexity. Opens with juicy pungent grapefruit that becomes anosmic if approached too closely. The blackcurrant was in there almost immediately which worked beautifully. My husband loves it. Uric lemon citrus. Perfect summer-fall fragrance! Aqua Allegoria Pera Granita by Guerlain is a Floral Fruity fragrance for women.Aqua Allegoria Pera Granita was launched in 2016. The notes looked good though - glad I purchased only a decant because this smells like BO on my skin. Smelling like cat urine, even to one person, is one person too many. Guerlain - Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca Eau De Toilette 75ML. moist, lingering smell that feels like I've had it on all day!! i know this is guerlain's inexpensive line and it is suppose to be eau de toilette, but the quality i find is poor.

It reminds me of when as a young child having my hair washed, I would accidentally get a taste of the shampoo, that kind of bitter. finally it turned into this weird awful smell that i can only imagine what other reviewers compare to as cat piss. I love eating them, I love them in fragrances and I buy almost strictly grapefruit flavoured lip balms.

Exhilarating citrus....absolute perfection for summer mornings just out of shower! The grapefruit just sparkles like champagne. I feel bad for those people who smell cat pee.

But mostly I smell, and this is for the first and hopefully last time, cat pee. Am I the only one who detects lots of patchouli in this fragrance? I got a mild but insistent whiff of body odour from it, only in the dry down, but still... not something I yearn for in a fragrance.
