When talking about luxury brands, Gucci is one of the first names to come to mind. Established in 1921 at Florence, Gucci has always stood for innovation and elegance.
Gucci launched its first perfume in the seventies, the company has been an innovator in perfumery ever since. As you can see from the list below, Gucci has mastered the feminine floral notes. When looking at mainstream perfumery, there is not a better designer house doing florals at the moment.
On this list, we will take a glimpse into some of our favorites from Gucci. You will find examples of the innovation Gucci has brought to mainstream perfumery. We will also get a glimpse of the best from the widely acclaimed Guilty line. The name Gucci has always stood for quality. For a fan of perfumery, some of the perfumes from the list are mandatory.
These are the very best Gucci perfumes:
For perfume-enthusiasts, the Guilty line does not need an introduction. Launched in 2010, this best-selling Gucci perfume is the first in the iconic line-up. To summarize, this is innocence in a bottle. The fragrance smells light, creamy and delicate. The gorgeous blend of white florals and peach make this the most feminine Gucci perfume yet. In fact, one of the most feminine perfumes on the market, period. Light some candles, have a relaxing bath and a glass of good wine. After your ritual, spray on some Gucci Guilty and you will know what heaven feels like. If you are looking for a safe yet versatile perfume for all-year use, this is the best pick from the Guilty line-up.
As a fashion house, Gucci has always favored non-traditionalism and risk-taking. Their perfumes are often as daring and bold as their new clothing lines.
We start our list with one of the most striking fragrance releases of the last few years – Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme.
A quick look into the note breakdown reveals that the course taken here is simply mesmerizing. The feminine floral notes are softly felt in the base. The notes driving this fragrance are woody notes more common to male perfumery.
That, however, does not mean that this is a masculine, butch-like fragrance.
On the contrary, there is a somewhat primal feminine aura to this gorgeous mix of woody and fruity notes. Go for a walk in the forest while wearing this perfume and let your inner Pocahontas roam.
We continue our list with yet another perfume from the legendary Guilty line-up. This is the dark, more sensual sister perfume of the original Gucci Guilty. The DNA of the original Gucci Guilty remains in place. Guilty Black, however, turns the cleanliness in a more flirty direction. The trademark notes of lilac and peach are still here albeit presented in a spicier and sweeter manner. One of the best selling Gucci perfumes, this is your perfect pick for a club night with your girlfriends. The smell of Gucci Guilty Black reminds you of a wicked and hedonistic vibe. Think of your best black eyeliner, neon lights and an upscale bar. One more side note – this also seems to be the absolute favorite among men. Try Gucci Guilty Black in a dating context and see for yourself.
Another masterpiece by Gucci. Here, Gucci has hit the mark by designing a fragrance directly in line with the emerging retro fascination. The white notes of tuberose and jasmine play in a wonderful harmony to create a vintage-feeling scent. Make no mistake, this best-selling Gucci perfume does not feel dated. On the contrary, this is a wonderful nod to a bygone era in perfumery. The smell is modern while having this very specific hind of old-school to it. The lushness and creaminess of the scent are simply a perfect suit for the summer months. Bloom will go perfectly with an elegant white dress and a bike ride in the countryside. The longevity and sillage of the scent are also extremely great. One of the latest masterpieces by Gucci that you simply have to try.
We continue our list with a stroll down memory lane. Many women identify Envy Me as their first venture into perfumery. It was a huge hit upon release in 2004. To our surprise, Envy Me holds up well. We would even say that this is still the perfect spring scent. There is a beautiful innocence to the girly-smelling blend of fruits and florals. There are subtle musky notes in the base as well, adding a bit of mystery to the vibe. Envy Me is ideal for a wearer who appreciates quality yet does not intend to make a statement with her perfume. It is impossible to imagine being offended by this scent. This is simply too well-rounded and pretty not to enjoy.
As apparent from the list, Gucci has mastered the art of creating bright and airy perfumes. Flora from 2011 is another fresh-smelling white scent. The citrus notes combined with the florals take the trademark freshness of Gucci to another level. The scent has that lasting fresh out of the shower quality to it. It wears extremely pleasant on the skin. Flora is perfect for a laid-back lunch date with your best friends or your significant other. This best selling perfume by Gucci is unpretentious yet sophisticated and chic. If you are looking for a perfume to extend the feel of clean skin, this is one of the best perfumes for the job.
In the nineties, everything seemed so vibrant and bold. Launched in 1999, this ambitious perfume perfectly encapsulates the nineties. Many Gucci perfumes are known for their white and soft aura, Rush is an exception. Partly inspired by the party culture of America in the eighties. Gucci Rush is exceptionally intense and invigorating. A rush of floral notes is instant and strong in Rush. This is a perfume for a woman who forges her path without a question. Rush is a definitive statement of her wearer. This intoxicating best-selling Gucci fragrance has an almost futuristic vibe to it. If you are a fragrance enthusiast, this is a must-try.
We continue with yet another Gucci superhero. Gucci Oud is a mysterious, hypnotic and captivating unisex fragrance. One of the most oriental offerings by Gucci, this is a hit from your very first spray. As all perfume-lovers know, oud is one of the most precious components in fragrance. Perfumers have a specific honor in getting this gorgeous eastern note right. Gucci has captured this note to perfection. The main notes we get from this are tobacco, oud and rose. While these notes may seem contradictory, they are somehow blended to smoky perfection here. There is a sultry vibe of eastern mystique at play here. For a lover of high-end perfumery with character, Gucci Oud will leave a lasting impression. The unisex factor of the scent is another fabulous factor. If this is a miss for you, just gift it to your significant other.
Everything about this scent by Gucci is groundbreaking. The master perfumer Alberto Morillas had sky-high ambitions of launching a whole new scent category – mineral. The results are simply striking. Notes of musk and jasmine are the main players here, giving this a thick and rich texture. While officially a unisex fragrance, this definitely leans more toward the feminine. The thickness of the scent means that this is one of the few floral perfumes that you could easily pull off during cold months as well. If you love your classic feminine floral perfume yet wish for an entirely new take.
Well, we have your answer – Gucci Memoire D’Une Odeur. You will not be disappointed, we promise.
This gorgeous woody-floral composition is decidedly exotic. Here, Gucci has presented us with the perfect beach scent. The fresh notes of bergamot and lime are beautifully sparkling, adding a beautiful fresh rush to the opening. In the base, sandalwood and amber add elegance and maturity to the lovely mix. All in all, the vibe of the scent reminds of a vacation on a remote tropical island. Take a moment to relax, prepare a tropical cocktail and spray on some Gucci Bamboo. You will discover that to fully immerse yourself in a vacation mood, a long flight is always not necessary.
We are also impressed by the price point. Considering the quality, this Gucci perfume is very affordable.
