Crisp, fresh smelling fragrance is right in my lane when it comes to how I want to smell. Editor Trudi Brewer reveals the notes behind the flanker fragrance to Gucci Bloom - Acqua di Fiori.
A green fragrance is fresh; the scent is reminiscent of cut grass on a summers day, it's lively and often quite bold. It's not at all mainstream - which is quite possibly why I love it. On certain days it's exactly the kind of scent I want to leave trailing behind me when I walk in or out of a room. Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori is that fragrance.

What is it?
The next chapter in the floral fragrance story of Gucci Bloom is by the brands' creative director Alessandro Michele. A green, floral fragrance housed in an exquisite lacquer bottle in vintage powder pink, adorned with a green Herbarium print Gucci label appliqué.
What's in it?
Did Michele choose two very bold ingredients in the making of this scent, he sure did. The first an aromatic, galbanum leaf and tart cassis or dahlia combined, give the new Bloom some serious attitude? It was created by Spanish perfumer Alberto Morillas who's work includes fragrances such as Calvin Klein's CK One, Kenzo Flower, Bvlgari Omnia, Giorgio Armani Aqua di Giò for women, and more recently Goldea for Bvlgari. No easy task when the rest of the scent offers up soft floral summery notes such as honeysuckle, tuberose and jasmine, that sit on a bed of creamy sandalwood and white musk.
Why do we like it?
Apart from my obsession with everything Gucci right now, a green fragrance is actually my first love. When it comes to beauty, fragrance and how it smells on your skin is as personal as it gets. And for most of us, we tend to stick to a couple of scents we like and wear them on rotation. Or you fall in love with one, and that becomes the signature perfume that you want to be remembered by. This new addition to the Gucci fragrance family could be my new 'one'.
