If you are a fan of Gucci Guilty, I need to tell you that the newest version, Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme, is nothing like it! The very first thing that popped into my mind when I smelled this was fruit, and sure enough, one of its key features is blackberry. When rose and patchouli kick in too, it becomes a big fragrance – there’s nothing shy about this scent.
The undertones are what gets the fragrance world excited – Goldenwood is a little used type of Cypress note, known for its dryness on the nose and there’s a splash of vetiver in there, too. The fruit stays but the dry-down is very smooth and creamy. The evolution of fragrance world means there are no rules but this does feel like an embracing winter fragrance to me – a hearty, enveloping scent that needs velvet and leather alongside it. It couldn’t be further away from the original Gucci Guilty if it tried, but if you enjoy an intense, signature fragrance, you will love it! Escentual has a 25% off deal that ends today (20th) so you’ll get 25% off the price of £49 HERE.
