In general, I love Gucci fragrances (still a Gucci Guilty fan) so I really had very high hopes for the new Gucci Bloom. It hasn’t disappointed at all – not for a millisecond! Even though the two noses for Guilty and Bloom are entirely different (Guilty is Aurelien Guichard and Bloom is Alberto Morillas) there is definitely a familiar thread that gives it a Gucci fragrance connection. They’re more cousins than siblings.
Bloom is quite heavily jasmine, but it also contains a note that I don’t think I’ve come across before – Rangoon Creeper. Apparently, the plant changes colour when it blooms and it’s what is responsible for the powdery element of Bloom and also boosts the floral elements.
Tuberose, at the base, can be rather heady, and so it is in this which gives the whole fragrance a night bloom aspect. I think it is completely lovely. If you like your scents fresh or crisp, forget it – this is SO not that but if you love a deep, sexy smack down of exotic flowers, it’s for you!
On me, Bloom lasted well, but didn’t go the whole day – it definitely needs a top up midway through which I’m not complaining about as it means you get that gorgeous powder opening all over again. Escentual has this at the best price I can find at £44.20 (rather than RRP of £52) HERE.
