Guerlain has two new additions to its ‘Fresh Fragrance Collection’ which has all the scents created on the theme of ‘Joyful By Nature’. Aqua Allegoria is a continuously renewed collection that pays homage to the wonders of nature and beautiful raw materials. The fragrances in the collection are delicate and cheerful, represent the happy and joyous moments. This summer, two new scents join the collection which depicts the same joyous and happy nature as the rest of the scents in the collection. Each scent brings back to life one of the most beautiful gardens in the world, with creativity and a dreamy, long-lasting freshness plucked from those gardens. The two new scents launched this summer are Aqua Allegoria Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia. The nose behind the fragrance is the master perfumer of the house, Thierry Wasser.

Review of the new Guerlain summer 2020 Aqua Allegoria range Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia

Aqua Allegoria Orange Soleia is a lemony citrus scent that evokes the delectable blood orange and the citrus groves of Sicily. It embodies the spirit of blood orange enhanced by the energizing freshness of bergamot and woody notes. The inspiration behind is the endless citrus groves of the Calabrian (South West Italy) summer. Under the Sicilian sun, picking a beautiful juicy orange and enjoying it in the shade of a tree, cooled by a refreshing breeze. Similarly, the playful and tangy effervescence of a blood orange is enhanced by the fresh and energizing coolness of mint.

Review of the new Guerlain summer 2020 Aqua Allegoria range Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia

I can totally see myself enjoying the Calabrian sun while enjoying the juicy orange under the shade of a tree while a refreshing breeze cools me off. The scent really evokes the joyous moment of me enjoying the fresh, delightful, and beautiful summer. The composition is based on noted of red-orange, peppermint, tonka bean, pink pepper, and bergamot. The fragrance is very pleasing, very realistic and juicy. Orange with mint and peppery note which is very subtly spicy – I am really enjoying the scent. The scent stays close to the skin for me and longevity is pretty good. I love this composition and it Is a happy scent for sure.

Review of the new Guerlain summer 2020 Aqua Allegoria range Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia

Aqua Allegoria Granada Salvia is a fruity citrus scent that represents a stroll through the warm gardens of Andalusia(Spain) while enjoying a crisp pomegranate. The pomegranate fruit essence is enhanced by the notes of sage (‘Salvia’ in Italian). ‘A delicious pomegranate accord made up of aqueous, green, and tart berry accents carried by fresh blackcurrant, cypress, lemon, and bergamot notes elegantly imbued with a twist of sage and rose over a white musk, moss, and patchouli background.’ The scent is a nice balance between being powdery and sweet. It is a little sweet as well a little musky.

Both the bottles of the Orange Soleia and Granada Salvia are adorned with golden mesh celebrate the iconic bee bottle. I am really enjoying these two new additions to the Aqua Allegoria range this summer 2020. Guerlain Beauty Products and Home Fragrances are available at Guerlain Boutiques, Hudson’s BayShoppers Drug Mart, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, and Holt Renfrew.

Guerlain has launched a new Primer or in other words, there is a new addition to the Guerlain L’Essentiel range. Here is the link to my detailed article from last year about the L’Essentiel Foundation. Guerlain L’Essentiel Pore Minimizer & Shine-Control Primer is a fresh, lightweight, and mattifying primer. Co-ordinating with the range, L’Essentiel puts 97% naturally-derived ingredients to work without compromising with the performance.

Guerlain L'Essentiel Pore Minimizer & Shine-Control Primer review

The primer is very lightweight, looks and feels very fresh on the skin. 1-2 drops are enough for my face and it blends in nicely into the skin without any residue. For my combination skin, this primer has worked pretty well to control the appearance of excess shine to balance skin and minimize the appearance of pores. It does not totally erase the pores or hides – which is not something real and natural but it makes the look of pores minimal. As I prefer a natural radiant makeup look, so this primer works pretty well with L’Essentiel Foundation as well as other foundations with a glowy finish. I apply this primer on my oily areas of the face – usually my t-zone, it makes the overall look very natural matte with minimized look of pores and shine is controlled.

Also, another important thing I have noticed is that this primer does increase the longevity of the makeup especially the base. I can not comment on how it will work on dry skin types for controlling the excess sebum but it definitely works to minimize the look of pores. For normal, combination, and oily skin types, this primer is an easy choice. And especially if you love L’Essentiel foundation, this primer makes a great pair.

The key ingredients that deliver the major specialties of this primer include Avocado Extract to help absorb excess sebum to keep skin appearing matte all day long and promote shine-free skin day after day and White Cocoa Bean Extract to help refine the look of pores and supports skin’s natural balance and barrier. Yacon Juice improves skin defence and balances the skin’s ecosystem. There is a subtle nice fresh scent to the primer when applied and dissipates very fast.

With skincare and makeup ingredients included in this newest launch from Guerlain, this is an easy pick-me-up to increase the wear time of makeup, to minimize the look of pores, and to control excess sebum and shine. L’Essentiel Primer is available at Sephora and will be available at other retailers mentioned below from the end of February 2020. Guerlain Beauty Products and Home Fragrances are available at Guerlain Boutiques, Hudson’s BayShoppers Drug Mart, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, and Holt Renfrew.

Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil in limited edition cherry blossom packaging is available in 50ml. This oil has been a regular in my skincare routine for over 5 years and still my favourite. I have shared many times about this oil on this blog as well as my Instagram. Linking my detailed post here, this oil is a must-try and must-have – never breaks me out, very lightweight, absorbs quickly, keeps my skin look youthful and radiant. I use this oil – few drops at a time – after my serum and before my moisturizer, it layers beautifully with other products in my routine. It also works amazingly when I add a few drops of this oil into my foundation to give a little extra radiance.
