A beautiful light and floral fragrance from Gucci,
I received this fragrance yesterday morning in the mail as a complimentary product from Influenster in exchange for my honest opinions and review of the fragrance. I will admit that I am far from a fragrance expert, as I typically mostly wear perfumes/fragrances for special occasions, or occasionally just to improve my mood a little sometimes, as well. That being said, I have a difficult time extensively describing this fragrance other than to say that it is a soft/relatively light fragrance that is predominantly a soft and gentle floral scent with hints of light fruit of some kind...to me, it makes me think of some type of cross between lychee fruit, pears, and white (green) grapes, though not as intense as you might smell from any of those raw fruits, themselves. While overall, I liked this fragrance quite a bit, I will be relatively transparent in saying that there are two main cons, or areas of weakness to this fragrance...namely price point and lasting power. While as I mentioned, scent wise, I really like this fragrance quite a bit and it definitely suits a number of scent notes that I generally prefer and look for in a perfume that I might like, well...to state what might already be an elephant in the room to some of us.. the price point, where I (or you, or whoever, really) to want to purchase this fragrance on your own, it would cost quite a bit, and more than I personally find reasonable to throw down for one perfume item, particularly given that I typically only wear fragrances on special occasions, anyhow. If the price point is something you feel comfortable paying for a fragrance then by all means, I'm far from saying you shouldn't give it a try; only that when making what, to me, seems like a larger purchase such as this perfume in full size, it is usually a good idea to be pretty well sure that the price is something you feel comfortable/happy paying for this one item. I sort of feel like that should go without saying, in a way, though. The other thing that I think there is room for improvement on this perfume, which is more regarding the quality or maybe in a way even, effectiveness of the fragrance, is that I did not find it to be especially long lasting on me personally, scent wise. I remember misting myself with the fragrance this morning upon receive it in the mail and opening my box and, unfortunately, I found that essentially not all that long after applying the fragrance even - maybe between half and
hour later - the fragrance has all worn right of with not a trace of scent to be smelled or noticed. This was definitely somewhat of a disappointment to me as I really enjoyed the scent itself... it's just if it doesn't last all that long, you have simply far less time to enjoy it period, before having to apply mist some more. Overall the fragrance itself, I found to be very nice, pleasant and almost dreamy a little even (to me, reminiscent of wandering through a floral botanical garden), I price point alone makes the fragrance rather inaccessible to a good number of people, and additionally, I felt that the lasting power of this fragrance unfortunately, really left something to be desired. I hope you found this helpful and informative regarding whether or not you might like to give this fragrance a try for yourself, or as a gift to someone else!
Nice pretty, fruity, slightly floral scent.
Review for Gucci Flora, Gorgeous Gardenia sample size.
I received this product for free from Influenster and Gucci in exchange for my honest review.
Review is based on my experience with the fragrance after wearing it twice, a couple of days apart.
Please remember that how we experience fragrance is different for everyone, this review is based only on my own experience with it.
When I first spray it, I get a blast of loud, screechy, synthetic floral, so loud, it is headache inducing. Fortunately, after about 10 to 15 minutes, it tones down, and I get a nice, pretty, fruity, vaguely floral scent that is office, elevator friendly.
Longevity on my skin is about 4 to 5 hours.
Projection is quite strong at first, then fades to skin scent after about a couple of hours.
I was really excited to receive this because I've been looking for a gardenia scent to replace my empty bottle of Fleurs de Gardenia, unfortunately I don't get gardenia here, it is barely even floral. After that initial floral blast, the most prominent note for me is pear, and more pear.
Really wanted to like this perfume, sadly, I have to give this one a pass.
But as always, perfume is such a personal, individual experience, so I would recommend getting a sample, and experiencing it for yourself.
Great fragrance but does not last past breakfast
I am not much of a floral parfum gal but this one is perfect. Not over powering smells fresh. Unfortunately for the price this fragrance doesn't last past breakfast without re-applying. At this price tag it should last all day.
Very nice scent
I got this as a sample and I really like the scent. It's not too strong and it smells refreshing just like flowers. I am plan to buy the bigger bottle.
J'ai reçu et testé vraiment magnifique parfum. Odeur très bonne. Je le recommande fortement.
Juste fabuleux ! Merci de m'avoir fait découvrir. Vraiment un must à avoir chez sous.
I love this! The smells isn't too strong. I would definitely recommend this!
