Feminine and sensual scent of delicate rose is in the limelight of this fragrance. The main notes are hyacinth, rose, iris and violet.

Eau de toilette line Aqua Allegoria is a fragrant fantasy, like taking a walk in the garden, and which garden it is depends on the main note of the composition, while all the other components are there to accentuate its beauty. Aqua Allegoria eau de toilettes are created mainly for women, although, some of them might as well be used by men. Aqua Allegoria Rosa Magnifica was launched in 1999. The nose behind this fragrance is Jean-Paul Guerlain.

Oh, this smells like clover! Not roses, as I was expecting. I owned a scrumptious, brandless soliflore "White Clover" perfume a few years ago and this is its twin! It opens with a clovery blast of Springtime, so if anyone has springtime allergies, beware, it is sneeze-worthy.
As it dries down, I smell lots of spicy-musky hyacinth and iris with the clover, maybe a hushed whisper of the rose and violet. If I psyched myself into thinking this was a "rose" (which I won't), I would say it was a VERY green and VERY powdery rose. Compared to Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose, it is far less sour and sharp, but more leafy green and talcum-y, and to me obviously less rosey. They last about the same amount of time (6+ hours depending on the day) and after their initial blasts have rather close silage.

All blooms have been cut off this rosebush,
the stems and leaves pulverized gush,
add hot water and chill,
for a fine teatime thrill,
douse with gin for a ladylike flush.

This is my favorite rose based fragrance ever! I loved Guerlain's "Nahema" when it first appeared in the late 80's, I think, but it can be extremely strong and rather cloying--this scent is a much better balance and lasts well without being over powering. Those who hate roses will NOT like this--but I certainly do--in fact, I love many of the Aqua Allagoria scents--I just wish I could find them anywhere near where I live.

I regret investing in this perfume years ago. It smells like roses and sour, fake green notes on me. It smells nice sillage-wise. I gave it away to someone I think will like it.

I don't think I can pull this off- it has a classy 80's feeling. In the beginning it started out as a strong and spicy hyacinth. The dry down reminds me of a softer but soapy rose with green scents in the mix. Not a bad fragrance, but it is not my favorite because it seems too freshly spicy for me.

I love this...then I don't. It is a softly sweet, very classic rose. I do like pure unadulterated rose...rose water-esque even. And this meets that requirement. But it fades away very quickly and leaves just a sigh. And I need more than that. Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose is a little sharp and acrid, Brosseau's Ombre Rose too powdery (musk rose?). YR's Rose Absolue is too sweet, thick and cinnamon jammy...though inexplicably I just bought more on eBay. My perfect rose was Floris Red Rose (discontinued) which was rich, natural and extremely long lasting. Guerlain's AARM approaches that and then wimps out. The scent is marvelous, but it lacks enough depth to carry it through more than a couple hours.

On my skin, for whatever reason, this is a horrific blast of medicinally sour, hospital antiseptic. I love roses, but to me and on me, this is a monstrously chemical, headache inducing, artificial floral odor. Rather like cheap candles or that which is used to scent commercial personal hygiene products. It's absolutely vile on me. I pulled my grimacing face away from my wrist after sampling this and had to wash it off. I was so sad.

aldehydes? Really? I smell no such thing! This is all about roses--pale pink roses. If The Perfumer's Shop Tea Rose overwhelmed you by being TOO rosy, then you may like this. It is softer, more gentle, and you won't feel like bees will start following you whenever you wear it.

My only complaint is that similar to the other Aqua Allegorias, the staying power is rather poor on my skin.

Rose scents and me just hate eachother, this is another boring soapy rose that I want to scrub off. It starts with some aldehydes and then seems to get really soapy. I dont even care what drydown is like cos I just cannot ever see myself wearing something as soapy and boring and unsexy as this.

Guerlain's Aqua Allegoria ROSA MAGNIFICA is not for those at all ambivalent toward the rose. This is all or nothing: if you cannot fully commit to the rose, you will want to avoid this fragrance. If you worry about smelling like a lingerie drawer or the rose water used sometimes for therapeutic purposes, AA ROSA MAGNIFICA is not for you.

For true, unabashed rose lovers, Guerlain delivers roses, roses, and more roses, delicately framed, but roses dominate from beginning to end. One spritz of this edt will land you immediately smack in the middle of a bed of roses from which you will not emerge for several hours!

~Wow~.....Just opened up my brand new Aqua Allegoria Rosa....and it really is "Magnifica"....My head is literally filled with roses!.....This is my first Guerlain perfume...I'm more than impressed :o) Starts off with loadness(not for long) and then softens to the most wonderful hiacynthy scent.....Very girly..very pretty...conjures up images of a 20's style garden party with beautiful tea dresses and vintage cars....I'd say a summer scent for sure...and romantic *sighs*......This one is a keeper :o)

UPDATE: I PULLED IT OFF
I went to Macy's (never again) to get my sis a b-day gift. The saleslady tried to convince me to buy a men's fragrance. I told her that I had all of the fragrances I want for now. I asked to smell Versace Versence and she gave me a wierd look. I knew right then and there she had no true knowledge of fragrances. But she was head-over-heels about what I had on and wanted to know what I was wearing. I smiled and told her that they don't carry it in her store. Still dying to know what had me smelling so fresh, she insisted on knowing. And she was shocked to find out that it was a fragrance marketed to women - Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Rosa Magnifica. Anyone who got close to me wanted to STAY close. I'm now convinced that it is quite possible for a man to pull off a floral aldehyde. The aldehydes begin to fade in about 3-5 minutes and the rose is perfect on me. A DEFINITE replacement for all of those aquatic fragrances that define mediocrity. I'm ordering a few more bottles to keep in my collection.

I don't know why, but I was lead to buy this... I smelled it and felt relaxed in an instant... I can't imagine a man pulling this one off AT ALL, but I love the scent... My gf is an "aquagirl", so I guess I'll just keep it for aromatherapy....

I own a bottle of this discontinued Aqua Allegoria and will keep forever! I bought it in Tunise, unsniffed and felt grateful for that, because it's very interesting. Well, if you expect a sweet mellow natural rose you can skip this one. It has a very strong aldehydic start. I'm quite surprised there are no aldehydes listed. It's a sharp kind of rose and stays so for a long while. After 2 hours I smell only crispy rose.

Strangely for an Aqua Allegoria this is a little strong. I think the hyacinth makes me a little nauseous. I love it after it has settled or if I dilute it a little with rosewater .

After strong, sharp aldehydes this one is classical "old fashion" rose, just the way you think most rose soaps, hand lotions etc woud smell. Rosey and little green. So if you like very traditional rose scents, this is for you and for modern rose fans, stay away from it.

I luckily do like most kinda of rosescents, so this one is nice addition on my rose collection.

When I first bought it in 1999 I thought it was wonderful. No longer. Too sweet and I would dare say a bit outdated. Other Aqua Allegorias have stood the test of time much, much better

Rosa Magnifica starts out with very loud aldehydes & upon spraying it I got an instant soapy taste in my mouth. After about 10 minutes Rosa settles into a pretty rose soap with a faint touch of blackberry. It still holds on to a little more aldehydes than I like. Then in 20-30 minutes it turns a bit greener and the longer it is on the skin it keeps softening up. Finally, in 2-3 hours it turns to a faintly citrusy rose. After all the waiting, it conjures up images of soft pink and white roses, earl grey tea and a lovely Victorian garden. I wouldn't purchase but, will use the rest of my decant. 3 of 5 stars.
