Gucci Guilty was developed by the perfumer Aurelian Guichard in 2010. The fragrance was launched as an essence for the beginning of the cold season, for the first autumn days. It is an essence built more for the sexy and dangerous self of the modern women.
The ad campaign is presenting the actor Jared Leto and the models Julia Hafstrom and Vera Van Erp, in Venice and tells the story of a man and two women exploring the, erm, ‘possibilities’ of life. In the image, he stars alongside Julia Hafstrom, who has the fortune of being naked in the bathtub with him, and Vera Van Erp, who remains clothed on the sidelines but is the recipient of a lovely handhold from Hafstrom.
Gucci Guilty Qualities
The perfume is classified as a floral, made from notes of mandarin, pink pepper, peach, musk, amber, and patchouli. At first, mandarins are seasoned with pink pepper, creating the first impact. The middle notes are a combination of peach, lilac, and bell so in the end to be replaced by amber combined with patchouli.
- Top notes: mandarin, orange, pink pepper;
- Heart: geranium, lilac, peach
- Base notes: patchouli, amber
If you want just a simple fruit pachouli you might be disappointed. It’s not gourmand despite the fruit notes. Instead, it’s an excellent blend of fruit, flowers and a very basic base of musk, amber, patchouli, and vanilla. The vanilla is tamed and in low concentration, just enough to add the right scent to the whole blend. I don’t find it particularly guilty, but rather seducing, especially after 2 hours.
It was designed for adventurer women, always smiling, with sunny, but perversely radiation. The fragrance is a little aggressive, I really do not know if it can seduce you and make you feel guilty. The longevity is good but the sillage is moderate, and it lasts for about 6 hours on my skin. The bottle is eye-catching, invoking the shape of an oversized G gold. It seems to be a pretty accurate representation of what it is inside.
Overall, it is an elegant and classy composition good for daytime in the spring or autumn season. I love the fact that doesn’t smell like everything else out there and doesn’t scream for attention. I also think that it’s wearable for all ages and you might be pleasantly surprised after trying it. I’ m not a big fan of the floral category when it comes to perfumes but Gucci Guilty it makes an exception for me. I recommend it and I will definitely buy it again. You can find it available as 30 ml, 50 ml, and 75 ml.
