Fragrances from the luxurious house of Gucci have always been well-received; names such as Rush, Guilty and Envy have made it to the favourites list world over. But when you design a perfume that is inherently floral again, there is a risk of having some noses turn away at the thought of that. As the name suggests, Gucci Bloom is a floral fragrance through and through. But here’s the difference— it has the power to convert floral sceptics into fans. Designed with the expertise of master perfumer Alberto Morillas and with direction from designer and Creative Director Alessandro Michele, Gucci Bloom spells spring like none other. With the very first spray, you can feel Alessandro’s vision come alive—he wants you to take a walk through his dreamy garden which is filled with the freshest flowers. A mélange of flowers make up this unique scent—natural tuberose constitutes its top note, which is backed by jasmine absolute and jasmine bud extract. Finally, it’s the opulent Rangoon Creeper that makes up its base note, a flower native to South India which has allegedly never been used in the perfume industry. Keeping with the contemporary vision of the company, Gucci Bloom comes in an Instagram-worthy pale pink bottle, with a red and black floral carton to accompany it. The fragrance is a medley of modern and vintage—there is a lightness and simplicity to it along with a sense of comfort that unfolds. A true sensorial treat, this scent!
