“Perfume” the word itself spells luxury and if it’s from a high-end brand, it redefines and reinvents the sensorial feeling. Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme for men was launched by the design house of Gucci in 2017. The nose behind it is that of Creative Director Alessandro Michele and master perfumer Alberto Morillas.
About the brand
Gucci is an Italian luxury brand of fashion and leather goods. Gucci was founded by Guccio Gucci in Florence, Tuscany, in 1921. It is the highest-selling Italian brand. Gucci is reinventing a modern approach to fashion. Gucci’s eclectic, contemporary, romantic products represent the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship and are unsurpassed for their quality and attention to detail.
Created for a man who defines his own masculinity, Gucci introduces a modern declaration of self-expression and emancipated sexuality. Born out of a special collaboration between creative director Alessandro Michele and master perfumeur Alberto Morillas, Gucci Guilty Absolute embodies the liberated man it is made for—an innovative expression of a men’s woody scent.
A sleek transparent flacon is the house of this manly cognac and cigars colored perfume. It bears the trademark logo on both the sides with a shiny black cap guarding its fragrance.
The bottle is a stylish upgrade from Gucci’s best-selling classic fragrances. The packaging is military brown coloured with black interlocking Gs.
Directions to use
Spray two to three sprays on perfume receptor areas and you are good to go.
It features manly notes of ultra dry woody leather and vetiver with three forms of patchouli oils to intensify the overall composition.
The top note is leaded with leather followed by a middle note of patchouli and the base notes settle with woody/vetiver scent.
The sillage of the perfume is not something to boast about. It doesn’t leave a trail behind but good enough to make your close buddy happy.
It stays for about an hour or two before fading away. The wow factor is that the fragrance remains unchanged from the first time it is applied to the skin.
AED 325/ $123 for 150 ml
Three years from the date of opening.
- It is a masculine blend of leather, patchouli, cypress, vetiver, and goldenwood for the new age man who loves new experiences.
- It smells of old leather with cigars on it which some people may find awesome and others awful.
- When it comes to fragrance, nothing seems to have been left at random in what concerns scent and style.
- It is a smokey smell which smells professional and attractive.
- It can be worn both at office and on a casual day out.
- The sillage and longetivity are very average. You can just smell it on your body and that also not for a long time. In my experience, it doesn’t last for more than 30 minutes.
Yay or Nay
I have been a Gucci loyalist, but in this case I have to say that it misses the mark. It is definitely not a niche fragrance from the luxury house. It is a satisfying linear masculine leather scent which is for different and avant garde. The scent lacks the wow effect and having less than average longevity puts it in the list of misses. Gucci misses the novelty here and so do I.
So here is my experience with this. Do tell me yours below.
See you guys soon!
