Gucci Pour Homme Ii Eau De Toilette Fragrance Review

Posted by Eautalk on Mon, 10/31/2016 - 11:56 PM

Gucci have long been revered as fashion royalty, particularly since the brand was resurrected in the 90's by Tom Ford who breathed new life into the luxury Italian house with his 70's inspired palette of browns and beiges. Whilst Ford was at the helm, he authored many fragrances for Gucci which – despite having been discontinued since he stepped down - are still held in very high regard today! Gucci Pour Homme II is a perfect example!

Pour Homme II is the younger sibling to Ford's Gucci Pour Homme – both presented in very heavy, thick glass flacons with dimpled bases. Whilst Pour Homme was a stunningly warm, woody, spiced masculine, Pour Homme II sits in a very different olfactory register... one that is more monochrome and cool. Its flight is infused with bergamot and violet leaf which soar over a considered heart of black tea, pimento berries, with a pinch of cinnamon. The foundation is comprised of olive tree and musk.... the sum of all components make for a scent that is sophisticated and diaphanous. It sits close to the skin, like one of Ford's exceptionally tailored suits.

Gucci Pour Homme II has long since disappeared from the Gucci perfume portfolio, but is not forgotten – and whilst marketed to men, it feels somewhat genderless, making it an excellent light scent for both men and women. Must be tried before its gone forever.
