Excerpt: I was so excited to receive my perfume in the mail. I put it on my clothes and neck and arms. By the time I got to school to teach, I could not smell it at all. Was disappointed and will send back. I will try the new Gucci perfume that just came out in it's place.
Summary: I got a sample of this and i loved the smell and seemed to have lasted a lot longer. I bought this and it does not last long at all. I'm actually quite disappointed about this purchase. I expected more from Gucci.
Sweet raspberry jam instead of champagne with white flowers and leather
18 August 2012
Summary: I'd say - try it on your skin before you buy and don't let the advertising to tempt you. To my nose it doesn't smell anything what is claimed. No champagne, no white flowers, no leather. At least not as I know them through my own experience. I smell a very big purple raspberry "fruit" cooked into a jam with a lot of sweet white musk (somehow the image similar to what I get from The Body Shop Raspberry line). It's very dense and sticky and suffocating to me.
Summary: The bottle firstly is heavy, which for me is annoying, I struggle to even pick the thing up to spray myself, although yes it does look nice on a countertop or whatever. I find myself at a loss of how to describe this properly. I'm unable to really pick out any scents without seeing them written before me, except maybe vanilla is in there lending it its base. Its a deep warm spicy oriental but I think i can detect some type of flowers in there but only just.
Summary: This perfume has a beautiful bottle and I guess that's what attracted me to it at the fragrance counter. When I first put it one I thought it stunk! But I don't know why something made me keep on wanting to try it each time I passed by the fragrance counter. I finally got a 30 ml. off of e-bay. I'm still not sure if I'm actually "gun-ho" about this perfume. One thing that I do know is that if I apply more than 1 spray it makes me nausous.
Summary: Haha I love mxnicole's haiku below. I was suckered into this in Perfumania, where it was 30% off, only to return it an hour later when the heart note kicked in. Far too oriental and musky for this floral girl's taste, though the top and middle notes are nice.
Summary: This turned to powdery and musky notes on me mixed with a little spice. A very uninteresting scent for me and not one I would spend money on. I have a miniature since I think the bottle is one of the nicest I've seen. Only if the scent were as charming. Again disappointed with Gucci fragrances. This is not nearly as unbearable as the Gucci Rush, so it is an improvement.
Excerpt: This was far too overpowering for me. I usually choose a much lighter, citrus scent, so woody and musky was never going to do it for me. I do like to keep an open mind and often try new fragrances.
