Gucci by Gucci Sport Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Wed, 08/29/2018 - 4:19 PM

 

The notion of sporting lifestyle fragrances is not a new one, and many perfume houses have built their reputation on producing perfumes that honour a sporting life (Hermes, I'm looking at you!) That being said, few brands are revered as highly as Italian fashion royalty, Gucci. Gucci by Gucci Sport (2010) is a fresh and vibrant eau de toilette which is ideal for men on the move!

Rather than training its focus on ozone or aquatic notes to furnish a sense of the great outdoors, this masculine fragrance is brimming with vivid evergreens. Luminous grapefruit, mandarin and cypress get the ball rolling, whilst fig, cardamom, vetiver, ambrette and patchouli provide support to the composition and a sense of grounding earth underfoot. The overall experience is refreshing, bracing and enlivening. This is arguably the perfect post-workout fragrance to throw in your gym bag!

Ideal for casual wear and for the weekend, Gucci by Gucci Sport impresses with its delicate balance of verdant greens and woods. A great mix of sport and sophistication. Viva la Gucci!

Gucci Guilty Absolute Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Mon, 11/13/2017 - 4:32 PM

Guys, don’t you LOVE the smell of a new leather car interior? Or a new leather jacket or pair of expensive leather shoes? Well Gucci has bottled that exceptional smell right here… Gucci Guilty Absolute; the latest masculine scent in the Gucci Guilty franchise!

Although there might already be 6 or 7 “Guilty” flankers (and counting!) Guilty Absolute veers away from the norm and trains its focus on a sensational spiced leather - one that is laced with nootka cypress which lends a fantastic dry woody accord to the mix. Using 3 different patchouli oils, and a generous dose of vetiver, Guilty Absolute is dark, warm, and commanding… just the thing your gal (or guy!) might want to snuggle up to! One would be forgiven for thinking there is also a sexy, animalic facet present - cumin or cardamom - but neither are listed in the ingredients. Composed by perfume royalty Alberto Morillas (the nose behind other masculine greats such as Amouage’s Opus VII, Acqua di Gio and the beloved Givenchy Pi) all eyes will be on you, as you live the rock-star lifestyle!

This fragrance introduced in 2017 brings back memories of the brand’s olfactory hey-day when Tom Ford was at the helm. Ideal for date night and days when the cold is drawing in, this exceptional cologne should be your new go-to this winter!
