The happiest, grassiest, flower meadow scent ever!
Flora Nymphea is the only one out of Guerlain's ongoing Aqua Allegoria series that I've smelled and instantly gone, "Wow! That's pretty!”
It's the happiest, grassiest, flower meadow scent ever.
It turns out that Flora Nymphea's buoyant orange blossom plus honey equals a wonderfully youthful and exhilarating perfume, especially for spring and summer. Or if you want to pretend it's spring and summer. Or if you want to pretend you're youthful and exhilarating.
Basically, Flora Nymphea can smooth out a lot of rough spots, both with the weather and your life. It's kind of a full-service perfume.
