Whoa, what do you mean, the first month of 2018 is already over? What the heck?
Okay so I super didn’t like Gucci’s previous new perfume, Bamboo. Imagine my surprise when I ended up buying their next release the week after it came out? But that’s what happened. This is Gucci Bloom EdP, released in 2017. Perfumer is Alberto Morillas.
The bottle is very simple but I find it elegant. The label on the front is textured, which looks very nice. The bottle is pretty heavy, mostly because there’s a magnet in the cap. I don’t usually think a lot about the names of perfumes but Bloom really is very fitting I guess. I also love the design on the cardboard packaging.
The smell is… hold your breath… tuberose. Again. 🙂 I can’t help myself, once I got over it I loved tuberose and had to get a small army of tuberose perfumes. This is mostly tuberose and jasmine and… honestly I’m not sure what else. I don’t get a distinctive base here, it’s just heavy flowers all the way. And it’s just so good. It’s like they had to keep all the good quality for Bloom , so there was nothing left for Bamboo other than thin laundry detergent. Sorrynotsorry.
Bloom lasts for about five to six hours in the intense stage and then another five on the cool down. You know, when it’s still there, but only if you take your wrist up to your nose.
A similar release to Bloom is Prada La Famme Intense, but that one has more stuff going on on the sidelines. Another tuberose release of 2017 was Hermes Twilly, which is also similar but more bubblegum pink in my nose. I liked them all, but in the end I sprung for Bloom.
Worth a try if you are into tuberose and jasmine and a total no-no if you hate these flowers.
