I’m picky about fragrance. For real. When I’m rating fragrances I rarely would give one a five star rating. The thing I seek out the most in a fragrance, for me personally, is depth. And depth is not lacking in Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia. Admittedly, I wasn’t sure what to think about this fragrance at first. Right at first spritz it is a powerful floral, but as it melts into your skin, the deeper down the fragrance rabbit hole it seems to go.
Yes, it’s still floral. But it sinks in to a gooey brown sugary sweetness that makes you feel so warm and cozy. Like you’re sitting in a flower garden on a fall day in a cozy sweater.In comes the next layer, which is the layer that won my heart — the patchouli base.
I’m a sucker for patchouli. The patchouli mixed with the brown sugar and the florals made me totally fall in love. It brings a punch of mystery and darkness to an otherwise light and airy scent, which is irresistible and so enticing to me. This is exactly the type of scent that I crave, and would make as a potential signature scent for anyone seeking a gorgeous floral fragrance with depth. All in all, I think I’d have to declare this my favorite fragrance by Gucci, and a 5 star rating coming from me. Now excuse me while I bury my head in this fragrance.
Until next time, the hunt is on!
