Gucci Guilty Diamond Edition

I’m not one to get too excited about ‘same perfume, different bottle’ kind of thing, but the exception lies here. Ever since it first came out, I’ve loved Gucci Guilty – it’s at the very front of my make-up drawer so I use it often. It’s also one of the very few – maybe the only – fragrance that people have stopped me in the street to ask what I’m wearing. I thought that stuff only happened in body spray ads!

So, with the Gucci Guilty Diamond Edition, I suddenly ‘get it’ about same juice, different bottle – this is just gorgeous, a glamour step up and OTT in a good way! There are crystals around the G design for Gucci Guilty Pour Femme and for the Gucci Guilty Pour Homme a more discrete version with two crystal studs. I can definitely say I like it better for the crystals in this instance.

I’m surprised though, to find that GG is described as an oriental floral – to me there’s hardly any spice to it – it’s a big, sweet burst of flowers that makes me smile every time I wear it.

So, if you’re chasing something glitzy to glam up your dressing table, and you love a voluptuous, feminine floral with a sprinkle of sugar, Gucci Guilty Diamond Edition (both for him and for her) launch into The Perfume Shop on 4th February. As you might expect, those ‘diamonds’ don’t come cheap – it’s £53 for her and £62 for him.
