Let’s chat Gucci fragrance! This is the latest to my perfume collection and it’s really quite beautiful.
Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum for Women is a ‘joyful floral perfume’. A delicious potion of joy built around the Gardenia flower blended with solar Jasmine absolute, cheerful Pear Blossom accord and sweet Brown Sugar accord.
This is my first ‘modern’ Gucci fragrance. I think the last Gucci perfumes I owned was the original ‘Gucci’ that launched maybe 2004-ish and then of course, Gucci Rush which was a classic noughties scent. Anytime I get a whiff of that (which is definitely a rarity!) it takes me back to an all-bar-one drinking WKD’s and listening to garage music whilst wearing my Miss Sixty jeans! I love it how fragrance can literally transport you back to a moment in time and can bring you such vivid moments and memories.
The Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia is certainly a more modern and beautiful scent : it’s feminine, floral, soft and pretty. It launched in 2021 and is a brand new Gucci fragrance. It was created by Honorine Blanc and Alberto Morillas.
‘A JOYFUL FLORAL SIGNATURE’
With a scent inspired by the believed mystical power of the Gardenia Flower, Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia is reintroduced as a joyful floral Eau de Parfum. Blended with the solar note of Jasmine Grandiflorum Absolute, the signature scent is steeped in with a cheerful Pear Blossom accord and a touch of Brown Sugar.
Top Notes – Pear Blossom
Heart Notes – White Gardenia, Jasmine
Base Notes – Brown Sugar, Patchouli
I have to say: this is one of my favourite perfume bottles that I have! I think it looks SO pretty and I love floral prints and designs anyway so this really is a bit of me. The stunning scent is encased within a new, elongated bottle, with lacquered pink glass and gold cap making it an object of beauty. One notable addition is the House’s distinctive Flora pattern, reimagined with a design inspired by Alessandro Michele’s vision. A core part of the Gucci identity, the motif is a painting of colourful flowers by artist Vittorio Accornero, created for Gucci in 1966. The outer part is made from FSC® certified paper – a system that guarantees products have been harvested responsibly.
The bottle looks delicate, pretty and feminine : and I think it truly reflects what it holds within.
