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.

Status in a Glass

Most men enjoy a cold glass of beer during the big game and with the biggest game only a few weeks away, why not celebrate with a premium ale that is sure to impress. Chimay is a complex ale made by monks in a monastery located south of Brussels in Belgium. Chimay ales have been crafted since 1862 using a private yeast blend that has yet to be used by other brewers. The blue-labeled Chimay Grand Reserve is an ale that has a fruity yet spicy character. The cork-topped bottle keeps the beer fresh and helps to prevent carbonation loss. Toast the team to victory in style with Chimay.
