A sixth version, Bouquet n° 1, will be exclusive to travel retail upon its wider launch in April. It is available in edt 75ml format and priced at €39.20 in duty free.

Aelia Head Perfumes & Cosmetics Buyer Sabine Fagan said: “We’re delighted that our French stores have been chosen as the launch pad for these two new items, which we are sure will prove a big success in France and beyond.

“Cartier Roadster Sport is a great extension to the line and a stylish addition to our range of men’s fragrances. From a strong French brand such as Cartier, launches like this have a strong impact in Paris airports especially.

“Guerlain, meanwhile, have always been receptive to our ideas on exclusive products and preview launches, and the preview of Aqua Allegoria is the latest in a long line of exciting projects we have undertaken with them. We expect the launch to appeal to the many followers of the brand in French airports.

“These two launches are welcome additions to our range as the busy Easter period approaches, and as ever we are grateful to our brand partners for their support. Our goal at Aelia is to continually offer something new and different to our customers, and we will continue to develop initiatives such as these in order to differentiate our offer in the most exciting and effective way.”
