Gucci make the best fragrances out there. They hardly or almost never got it wrong, for me that is. I am a fan. Every single Gucci fragrance I own are my most favourite among all. Just don’t ask me to choose my favourite among the favs as I would have a problem with it 😀 . Gucci Flora, one of Gucci most sought after fragrance is said to be targeting younger audience. With all the floral motives going on and the cutesy bow on the bottle neck, I can see why. It is dubbed as a subtle but yet sophisticated, floral fragrance that are inspired by princesses from the past, present, and future. Fast forward to early 2017, Gucci launched a Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Limited Edition scent. Eeeekkk! I love limited edition scent!
Whenever I whipped this Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Limited Edition bottle out, everyone will go ohhh, that perfume is so you Fiona. I have to agree with it. This perfume is indeed so me, as if it was made for me. Floral scent is my main fragrance preference and this Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Limited Edition fits the bill. What I like about this perfume is the simplicity but yet gorgeous bottle. It carries Gucci Flora identity from past previous Flora launches. It can’t run away from the hexagon hefty glass bottle, the heavy and well-made hexagon cap with GUCCI embossed on the top and of course, the little black bow on the bottle’s neck.
This Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Limited Edition particularly has a tinted, radiant modern pop pink juice. For someone who love pink, I fell in love with this one even before the first mist. No kidding! As the name Floral Gorgeous Gardenia suggests, this fragrance has an elegy to the delicate gardenia flower. It does smell elegant and sophisticated florally, and that is my kind of scent. This fragrance is an Eau de Toilette, therefore you may expect to mist on more than usual just so the scent stays on the entire day. And it does. The scent tones down to a subtle scent, still smelling the same as when first mist on at the beginning of the day. Just more subtle and soothing. The scent opens up to what was described as “the lightness of gardenia shrub’s first blossom”. If this is what gardenia shrub first blossom smells like, hey I am going to have a gardenia garden!
This scent is definitely an intense feminine scent based on the elegant and sophisticated vibes I get. However, it does carry notes of red berries, which I supposed is to tone down the intense floral scent. The heart scent is of course white gardenia and its base scent are made of patchouli and brown sugar. Does it any how smells sweet? Not actually.
The outer box is also something I notice and note of. So pretty! It has electric shade of pink with flora and fauna of botanical Flora print printed on the entire box. I don’t know about you. I never throw my fragrance box away. I have it in an enclosed cabinet. This Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Limited Edition box is definitely a keeper 🙂
