For my 21st birthday this year, I was lucky enough to receive two fragrances as gifts from my family; the first was Vivienne Westwood’s Cheeky Alice and the second was the Gucci Guilty perfume. I was completely shocked to receive the Gucci perfume as it is very pricey, but I was thrilled when I opened it!
First impressions: the packaging is absolutely gorgeous and completely luxurious. It is everything that Gucci stands for; sleek, stylish and glamorous.
When I first smelt the perfume, it reminded me of something that I loved – it was a little while before I twigged that it is one of the fragrances my mum always wears! However, I don’t think this made me biased – I really do think the fragrance is beautiful. It is a strange combination of sweet and spicy that just somehow works.
I would definitely class this perfume as a night time fragrance; I would wear it on a fancier-than-normal night out. Yes, I know I’m buying in to the designer dream, but there is something about it that makes you feel amazing. I would feel guilty about this (pun not intended!) if the smell itself was not divine, but it simply is!
Have you tried any of the Gucci perfumes? What do you think?
