Dear Roses and Lilies,
I woke up yesterday with a stuffy nose and the day went on with a series of headaches. I caught a cold... or a cold caught me.
So Friday couldn't have come sooner!
But the weather outside is depressing, so out with the mood boosters:
Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria in Pamplelune - I love the name - and it is French for grapefruit - was created in 1999 ( nose behind it being Jean Paul Guerlain ).
Top notes are grapefruit and bergamot, middle notes are petitgrain, neroli and cassia, base notes are patchouli and vanilla.
The opening smells of delicious grapefruit and remains so for the most of the day. When it gets more "close to the skin", the vanilla peaks through. I can't say I smell the neroli or the patchouli, but, then again, the fragrance is supposed to be about grapefruit.
Armed with this and sniffing it on and off for the rest of the day will, hopefully, help me reach the weekend easier.
