When Frida Giannini took over the reigns at Gucci, she retired the perfumes created by Tom Ford when he worked with the brand, so almost overnight, Gucci by Gucci for Women became the new signature feminine from the line. Presented in a brown glass flacon with gold-coloured hardware, the bottle not only referenced Gucci's accessory-making heritage, but the perfume it held became a hit with women the world over.

Gucci by Gucci for Women opens with a fruity flight – crisp pear and pulpy guava set the tone for a scent that is dewy and opulent. A heart of tiare flower and honey furnishes this eau de parfum with an ambery floral warmth – one which settles on skin like a shining bronze mantle. Trailing base notes of patchouli and musk evoke an earthier, more organic facet.

This perfume personifies the modern Gucci woman; a woman of sophistication... one who appreciates luxurious things.

Very VIP.
