Ever since Alessandro Michele took over the reins at Gucci as its creative director, the label has been on a roll.
Churning out gorgeous clothing, accessories, bags and shoes with an interesting vintage patina, accents and details.
Unfortunately, most fashion labels and their corresponding perfumes are often not the brainchild of the designer.
Still, I was keen to find out how the shiny new Gucci scents fair. Especially when they have been inspired by Michele’s sartorial work.
Like most Gucci perfume launches, the Platinum range comes in a pair.
My thoughts on the Gucci Guilty Platinum EDT: Nothing like the original Gucci Guilty, it is a warm, fruity-floral (if such a thing were possible).
Gucci says: “Top notes – geranium and pink pepper; heart notes – lilac and peach; base notes – amber and patchouli”
My thoughts on the Gucci Guilty Platinum Pour Homme EDT: Fresh, citrusy, a whiff of pine needles, warm. This may be made for men, but I’d wear it. This juice turns a little sweet on my skin, which gives it an interesting twist. I prefer this to the one concocted for women.
