Gucci Flora (for women) – short story

Gucci Flora has been launched in April 2009. It is the second fragrance after Gucci by Gucci, that has been created under the management of the fashion house that belongs to Giannini from Florence. The perfumers that are responsible for the mixture are from the Firmenich.
The Australian model Abbey Lee Kershaw is participating in the commercial campaign in presenting the Gucci Flora. The pictures for the advertisement have been taken by the photographer Chris Cunningham. The commercial has been taken in Latvia on a large field with more than 40 000 flowers. Abbey Lee Kershaw is dressed in a long silk dress with floral ornaments. She is fascinated by the flowers around her. Inhales the scent of a white rose and the fragrance inspires her in a way that she starts dancing under the rhythms with the wind and the music. For the background they have used the hit “I feel love” of Donna Summer. Inez&Vinoodh have modified the commercial using a floral imprint.

Pyramid of the aromatic notes and duration of the fragrance

The ingredients of the aroma part of Gucci Flora seem to be not that important. The scent is a really light one – clear, fresh and nice. The mixture is so homogeneous within the side, core and basis scents. With the top notes (the combination of citruses and peonies) there is no rush neither of the specific these tender flowers bring with them nor of the exotic of the citruses. The rose along with the Chinese flower are in the core of the Flora but they are also hardly distinguishable. They only enforce the flowery feeling and the femininity of the perfume. The base consists of patchouli and sandalwood. Spiced with a pink pepper. Those who are not really fans of the woody touches will not even manage to feel them in this scent. Here their only purpose it to make the fragrance last longer and not to be distinguished. In general I would qualify the Gucci Flora neither like a flowery one nor like woody perfume. This might be one of the reasons why it is really a unique one.
The duration is really a good one – around 16 or more hours.

Recommended places to use

Spread all over your neck and wrests – the hot spots of your body. The Gucci Flora is not really intrusive; on the contrary it is really a classy and thrilling one.

Shape, shade and original wrapping

The perfume has been inspired by the princess of the past, present and future. Thus it is focused on the attention of the young people. Maybe because it counts mainly on the colorful touches the Flora is described as a natural and really authentic fragrance. In its essence though, it is an elegant, classy and even a complicated scent. This is one of the classic fragrances.
The tank is also an elegant one – a clear bottle with champagne touches, a black tap and a ribbon. This tank reminds of the one used for the Gucci by Gucci. The main difference is that the Flora one is with a geometrical form of a hexagon. You can find sizes of 30 ml., 50 ml. and 75 ml. eau de toilette and 100 ml. deodorant.
