Tasteful Gucci Fragrances

Gucci is an Italian fashion company based out of Florence, Italy. The company was founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci. The products range today anywhere from handbags, to shoes and to fragrance.

flora1Gucci Flora is a floral fragrance, appropriately named. It is a brand new perfume for women, and combines elements of the designer’s glamorous past and spontaneous present. It is inspired by Gucci’s famous Flora pattern, which was designed onto a scarf for Princess Grace of Monaco in 1966. This is the first time such a style debuts in black and white.

The perfume itself is made of Rose and Osmanthus flowers from China. The Rose brings out light and fruity flavor, complimented by the stronger, velvety Osmanthus. It also includes fresh citrus and peony, which are more fresh. It is topped off with Sandalwood and Patchouli, which are then more deep and heavy. It is quite the sophisticated scent.

The Flora bottle has a hexagonal shape of glass, along with a black ribbon tied into a bow, as well as a gold logo with Guccio Gucci’s signature.

Purchase: Sephora. It retails for $52-$90, depending on size.

gucci_envy_me_30mlGucci’s Envy Me is a less epic, more up-front fragrance that grabs people’s attention. It comes in a cute, tall, thin, pink bottle. Very pop-art looking!

Envy Me combines a scent of seasonal peony, jasmine and pink pepper. It is accented with notes of sweet litchi, pomegranate, pineapple, as well as white tea and warming woods. It combines such scents of fruit and flowers from far East and tropical places, perfect for standing out. Envy Me can be soft and feminine, or flirty and girly, depending on what you wear it with.

Purchase: Sephora. It retails for $45-$85, depending on size.
