ROSA ROSSA? ROSA FIZZ? ROSA POP? ROSA ETC.


When Guerlain reissues one of its discontinued fragrances, which happens on average five times per year, it's often accompanied by a renaming of the scent. Since Guerlain seldom reveals the original name of the fragrance, the discerning customer is left with a feeling of confusion and frustration.

The latest example is Aqua Allegoria Rosa Rossa, which according to Guerlain's website is a "réédition" of an older fragrance, yet there was never a fragrance called Rosa Rossa in the Guerlain catalogue.

So what is it? To add to the confusion, even Guerlain employees seemed to be confused. Some members of the staff claimed it to be a reissue of Rosa Pop from 2016 (which was a reissue of Karine Dubreuil's Pivoine Magnifica from 2005), while others said that it was in fact a reissue of last year's Rosa Fizz (which was a reissue of Bouquet No.2 from 2011). Now, Guerlain's customer service confirms that Rosa Rossa is a reissue of Rosa Fizz (shown here), a.k.a. Bouquet No.2, with notes of litchi, blackcurrant, rose, and wood.

Maybe some of this confusion stems from the fact that it wasn't easy to smell the difference between Rosa Pop and Rosa Fizz.
