Gucci Guilty Perfume For Women Review: Fruity, But Floral

Perfume Gucci Guilty For Women

Gucci Guilty fragrance starts fruity and sweet, and then it goes sweet-floral full speed after a couple of minutes. When the florals finally find some balance, the fruits come out again (peach, if you ask me) and turn out to be a fair amount. Sweet notes however still own the room, and make this a sweet-floral with a fruity side.   On the blotter it goes easier, it’s more sparkling and fresher. On the skin it’s more animalic (according to […] Read more »

The amazing bottle of this Valentino eau de parfum

Valentina by Valentino is a sweet floral that deserves to be known more. It starts quite powerful with a mix of florals, where tuberose is the queen and will make the air in your nostrils quite dense (you may think it’s rose, but it’s not, although it has the same tendency to thicken the air). And soon you have the sweetness you would expect, but also something more, in the form of a certain sourness. The official notes list wild […] Read more »

Maitresse Perfume For Women By Agent Provocateur

The British inciting agents of Agent Provocateur kept up to their name with this Maitresse perfume (one of the two founders of the company is Vivienne Westwood’s son btw, thanks Wikipedia), which was launched in 2007 and created by Christian Provenzano.   Title bait aside, I’m not sure if this is a fragrance a maitresse would wear, but sure it’s at least quite lavishing. The mix of the florals is what strikes me the most in this Agent Provocateur Perfume: […] Read more »

Britney Spears perfume Curious

The unofficial category of harmless perfumes has a new entry: In Control Curious Britney Spears, a limited edition of Curious.  Just to be clear: that doesn’t mean bad, by any means. On the contrary, it’s a quite nice fragrance but, wait a second, where did I smell this before? Oh, right: here, and here, and here and here and here. Although, in all fairness, it’s a bit less floral then the ones above, but also less fruity than its cousin […] Read more »

New Juicy Couture perfume

This was the first fragrance of the Juicy Couture fashion house, launched in 2006 and created by Harry Fremont (CK One, Miracle by Lancome, Romance by Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang Princess).   Juicy Couture opens with a citrus and fruits frenzy, which feels as if the perfumer wanted to display as many notes as possible in the shortest time: I caught watermelon and pineapple, but seriously, they passed in front of me so quickly that I could barely feel them.

Flora Gucci Perfume

I don’t know about you, but Gucci Flora reminds me a lot of Flowerbomb. There are two sides: one sweet, one floral, so you can decide if to see it as too cloying or very delicate. Unlike with Flowerbomb however, I personally went for the latter, maybe because the sweet side is not pralinic (it’s not a word, I know), but comes from red fruits.   The opening of this Flora by Gucci perfume sets the tone immediately, and the […] Read more »

Vera Wang perfume Princess

Vera Wang Princess is a delicate girl with the gift of vagueness. It has a lively world of emotions and ideas running underneath, and the fact that she’s incapable of expressing them clearly is exactly what makes her lovable.   From the very start there is a prelude to chocolate and it soon develops into a trio of floral + fruity + sweet, all wrapped in a powdery halo. The sweet side is indeed a mix of chocolate and vanilla […] Read more »

it's your perfume

212 Sexy perfume by Carolina Herrera is one example of how a flanker can totally steal the original’s thunder. As the SA said, since this Sexy 212 version came out, they’re not selling the original as before.   The perfume opens with fresh/sweet citrus notes with already a floral presence in the background. Not bad at all. Then, after about 15-20 minutes there is a transition to floral notes of gardenia and geranium, wrapped in cotton candy (a la Angel […] Read more »
