Flo­ral med­ley

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!
