Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Limon Verde ~ new fragrance

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Limon Verde

Guerlain will launch Limon Verde, a new aromatic woody fresh green citrus fragrance in their Aqua Allegoria range. Recent Aqua Allegoria scents include 2013's Nerolia Bianca and Flora Rosa (2013).

"Savour a Caipirinha under the lemon trees along the Amazon River."

Limon Verde is a dancing tropical fragrance. A feeling of freshness highlighted by sparkling accents.

Its pure and refined bottle with a golden mesh is a nod to the celebrated Bee Bottle.

A fresh and woody interpretation of Guerlain Homme L'Eau, overdosed with vetiver. When it comes into contact with water, this rich and facetted raw material reveals its vibrating and powerful aromas. Highlighted in the fragrance, it brings a unique signature and a bursting freshness to the Guerlain Homme line's latest creation, as well as a fresh and sensual trail.

Update: the notes include cachaca, lime, cane sugar, ice, fig and tonka bean.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Limon Verde will be available in 75 and 125 ml Eau de Toilette.

Update: Looks like Guerlain made a boo-boo and pasted in text from the wrong fragrance. I'll update again when they fix it! (again via Monsieur Guerlain at Facebook) Done, see above!

    Excited for this as I cannot get enough aromatic woody citrus scents! Will help to usher Spring in I hope!

    • Robin says:

      I have not loved many of the AAs lately, but this sounds great! And admit I never even smelled last year’s, ack.

      • floragal says:

        “overdosed with vetiver” – that must have caught your attention ;)

        • Robin says:

          Never hurts! These usually take so long to get to the US though. So I’ll have a long wait.

        • Robin says:

          Oops…forget that, see corrections above!

  2. Thanks for your credit, Robin! I need to point out that the vetiver reference is an error made by Guerlain. By accident, they copy-pasted the text from Guerlain Homme L’Eau Boisée, and it has nothing at all to do with Limon Verde! :-o

  3. solanace says:

    If it’s Brazil-inspired, as the mention to caipirinhas and the Amazon implies, it should be Limão verde, not Limon. That was lame!

    • Robin says:

      That seems too strict to me — most brands don’t use the language from the place that inspired the scent.

      • True, plus the Aqua Allegorias have always used “funny names”, semi-inspired by Latin and other languages, but never “true” names.

      • solanace says:

        I get your point, but it is way too common to hear Spanish on movie scenes that are supposed to happen here, or Caribbean music playing, so it just feels like bigotry from my perspective.

    • Oakland Fresca says:

      Not sure I’d ascribe the use of limon to anything other than looking for a name with the broadest accessibility, but I do think it is a missed opportunity on the part of Guerlain :) To a boorish American, ‘Limão e Madeiras’ sounds much more inviting and sniff-worthy than any ol’ Limon Verde… Ho Hum. Zzzz.

      • solanace says:

        Agree! That would have been a good name. Limon verde sounds really tacky!

  4. scentfromabove says:

    Sounds interesting and something different from the fragrances I usually wear. Would love to give this a try. Hate that it may take a while for it to get to the U.S.

    • Robin says:

      Maybe we’ll get lucky & they’ll be quick this year.

  5. Thalia says:

    This sounds very summery and refreshing. I wish it really were “overdosed with vetiver,” though — maybe one needs to layer it with whatever fragrance that copy does belong to (a Guerlain l’Homme flanker, I guess?).

  6. happy888cat says:

    Looking forward to this years Aqua. I heard it has notes of cane sugar and fig too. I haven’t really loved any of them after Flora Nymphea tbh. Lys Soleia was well done but not a fan of Lily.
    I wonder if they will also have a annual travel exclusive version too? I got last year’s Flora Rosa but honestly, not worth a mention.

  7. Merlin says:

    I would like something that smells like a Caipirhina!

  8. Bejoux says:

    I love lime – but too often the note turns out to smell like toilet cleaner! Do I dare to hope this will do for lime what Pamplelune did for grapefruit?

    And I really liked last year’s Nerolia Bianca.

    • Merlin says:

      You should try Eau de Rochas!

  9. rickbr says:

    They could have made an Aqua Allegoria fragrance based on Acerola or Pitanga that would be very exotic and Brazilian too, but i suspect that the caipirinha theme is very nice too and i hope that they do it with the same quality as Lys Soleia and the gorgeous Nerolia Bianca. And thinking, maybe they could have made a twist in the caipirinha theme, since here in Brazil we have caipirinhas made not only of lemon. You have passionfruit, red fruits, kiwi caipirinhas and i think they are even better then the more traditional recipe.
