Naturally intense, naturally forte, Guerlain launches a trio of distinctive, unexpected fragrances.

October 13, 2023


The Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Forte Collection welcomes a three new fragrances for the Fall season: Bosca Vanilla Forte, Oud Yuzu Forte, and Rosa Palissandro Forte. Aqua Allegoria Forte, the intense collection, a warm and enveloping journey to the heart of the world’s wonders. For its new creations, the collection pays tribute to the extraordinary power of wood through three new intensely woody eaux de parfum.

Rosa Palissandro Forte, is an homage to the beauty of rosewood. Zest of bergamot, an iconic Guerlain citrus fruit, and rosewood emerge in all their splendour. Also known as bois de rose, rosewood powerfully expresses its unique and highly complex scent in a fragrance all of its own. The characteristic facets of lemon and coriander seed, a woody imprint and the inimitable nuances of rose. Elegantly structuring this fragrance, rosewood expresses all of its surprising floral character through a Turkish rose absolute whose full, rich and delicately honeyed aroma supports the naturally floral inflections of the wood. Creating a fascinating interplay of textures and connections between all the ingredients, patchouli enhances the woody character of rosewood.

Oud Yuzu Forte, is the illumination of oud wood. The composition opens with the lively, joyful, radiant notes of the Japanese yuzu, a small, intensely tangy citrus fruit. Like a ray of sunlight crossing the sky to penetrate the forest and illuminate its depths. Paired with the warm, dry notes of cedar, oud wood reveals the majestic complexity of its woody, ambery and animal nuances.

Bosca Vanilla Forte, the meeting between a driftwood accord with hints of the sea and the warmth of vanilla and everlasting flower with sunny, enveloping accents. Eucalyptus leaves release their aromatic and invigorating accents. The driftwood accord, lulled by the waves and time, comes through powerfully in the heart. It exudes intense salty notes, enveloped in the vanilla tincture’s irresistible warmth with its naturally smooth and woody facets. Paired with the spicy aromas of everlasting, the emblematic flower of Corsica, the duo is vibrantly highlighted.
