Aqua Allegoria Anisia Bella

Guerlain beehive bottle and star anise.

Wore this the entire week that one crazy midsummer.
Still makes me feel hungover.

Edit – 10/12/21

Anisia Bella doesn’t make me ill anymore–I can finally drink ouzo again, too–but it’s definitely a scent for high summer.

The anise and licorice are too spicy for spring, the basil and tea too herbal for autumn. The citrus kick at the top is a lovely summer lemon seltzer, and the drydown was biscotti in another lifetime.

Nice. Leans a bit more butch fade than Teazzurra‘s fringe bob.
For more accessible options, try any incantation of the original Lolita Lempicka, or 4711’s Blood Orange & Basil.


I played this song a lot that summer.
