Gucci Bamboo - #FragranceFriday

Its that time of year, some people get excited about winter clothes I get excited about new fragrance launches.  I predict one of the big launches this Autumn is going to be Gucci Bamboo*.  People are crazy about Gucci fragrances but unfortunately my first and only (until now) Gucci fragrance was Gucci by Gucci a gift.  Himself was in a panic one Christmas and bought the bestselling fragrance.  It is a heady and strong scent, I found it so overpowering. Not for me at all.  

To say I was a little cautious about Gucci Bamboo is an understatement.  I shouldn't have worried everything about Gucci Bamboo is softer from the delicate pink box to the modern and sleek (with a nod to the historic bamboo handle).

Do you have a perfume wardrobe?  Do you have certain fragrances that you only wear in the winter and others you only wear in the summer?  Gucci Bamboo is one of those timeless fragrances that you can wear at all times Summer, Winter, Day or Night.

The fragrance is quite unusual as its fresh yet intense but is never overpowering.  Its notes contain floral and amber, if I read this before smelling I would think its a heady strong fragrance.  Gucci Bamboo is described as a Musky White Floral  the main Notes are; Orange Blossom, Ylang Ylang, Casablanca Lily, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Amber accords.

Gucci Bamboo is a wonderful departure from overly sweet fragrances.  Its not too floral and not so musky its heady, the unique mix of scents creates a feminine scent one that I would describe as Womanly as opposed to girly.

The bottle is simple and clean with an Art Deco inspired design (and I don't think there is a woman on earth who doesn't appreciate a bit of Art Deco).  The lid of the fragrance is a reminder of Gucci beginnings as a luggage designer.  Gucci's bags historically had a Bamboo handle and the fragrances has a sleek silver nod to the iconic Gucci bags.

Everything about Gucci Bamboo from the bottle to the scent tells me the fragrance is going to be a modern classic.  Its a beautiful and complex scent that is incredible easy (and flattering) to wear. 

Whats the Damage?  Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum:   30ml, €63.00  |  50ml, €87.00  | 75ml, €112.00

(Dont forget Christmas Gift sets which are always better value Christmas Line-up: 30ml & Bodylotion 50ml Coffret €63.00  |  50ml & Bodylotion 100ml coffret €87.00)

P.S.  I have since gone back and had a sniff of Gucci by Gucci and although I still think is a very strong fragrance I think its quite nice, its funny how your "nose" changes and you like and dislike different scents.
