I have been very late again testing the new releases, and today I just sniffed Gucci Bloom, which is the first female scent release under the direction of Alessandro Michele (and I was very impressed with his first men’s scent for Gucci – Guilty Absolu)
Gucci Bloom was love at first sniff for me. It’s really quite a simple scent – imagine picking a wild bouquet of jasmine, tuberose, and violets, and there you have Gucci Bloom. There’s nothing more to describe – the jasmine and tuberose are tempered and nice, and the sweet violets sit on top of the bouquet. This is a pretty white floral,easy and dewy, and quiet enough. It’s accessible enough for office wear, distinctive enough for someone to smell you as they walk by. It doesn’t overwhelm, it whispers enough for a remembrance. Here I am, hours after spritzing it and I can still smell it faintly on my arm and my short. It has a memorable trail. Besides, I am a sucker for white florals anyway. It is also perfect for the brand, as you can imagine this scent matching Michele’s floral prints. I smell a hit.
