Aqua Allegoria Flora Nerolia

Mini Guerlain beehive bottle on a tiny white cardboard box printed with orange blossoms.

Flora Nerolia is basically everything I love in a good neroli essential oil with three times the staying power and an added touch of elegance.
Opens with spring sunshine and honey caught in a crystal decanter, then jasmine and pettigrain rough it up to make it organic and skanky.
(The lushness could get sweaty in the summer. In winter it’s like wearing hope on the skin.)

Sadly discontinued. Secondhand prices are weird on this one–I’ve seen empty boxes go for more than full bottles.
