Gucci released a new fragrance recently called *Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum and this perfume comes in an iconic glass bottle. The bottle is cut like an abstract or diamond just like the edges of well cut precious stones. I like the fact that Gucci translated the Bamboo theme to the bottle design and the handle or lid of the perfume is shaped like a bamboo with studded ends which is truly iconic. The bottle looks so pretty on my dressing table. The perfume doesn’t smell like Bamboos though.
- Top notes: Italian Bergamot, Orange Blossom
- Heart: Casablanca Lily, Ylang Ylang
- Base notes: Deep Sandalwood, heady Tahitian Vanilla and unique grey Amber accords.
The scent is a little citrusy, a little floral, a little sweet and woody with a hint of vanilla which is chic, posh, feminine and luxurious without being overpowering. The top notes of Bergamot makes it very uplifting and smell sophisticated. The scent is feminine without being overly sweet. Its a perfect balance between warm , sensual and floral fragrances.
Its a lovely light day time fragrance and it stays all day long on me without giving headaches. It is liked by even those who usually stay away from fragrances so I believe this would be one of the safest options for gifts available even if you don’t know the taste of the recipient. I definitely recommend checking this out 🙂
Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum retails at £58 for 50ml and £70 for 75 ml from Boots.
You can get this fragrance personalized with the Engraving service offered by Boots Emporium Stores at an affordable price. I have shared all the details in a separate post here.
Until next time..
