Fragrance File: Gucci Guilty Review

I love a gorgeous new scent and this one recently came across my desk and I’ve fallen for it, hard!

The Scent

Created in homage to Gucci’s leather-making roots, Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme was born out of a special collaboration between Creative Director Alessandro Michele and master perfumer Alberto Morillas

The scent has been created with a particular blend of four key ingredients: Blackberry, GoldenWood®, Bulgarian Rose, Nootka Cypress & Patchouli.

I wanted a blackberry note that would make you dream upon smelling it. It’s magical and it’s connected to nature, as well as to emotion. ALESSANDRO MICHELE

This mysterious combination of ingredients creates a non-traditional chypre fruity fragrance for a contemporary woman.

Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme Eau de Parfum is the ultimate partner for Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme.



The Campaign

How “absolutely” gorgeous is this video for the Gucci Guilty campaign. I think it captures the romance and mystery of this luxurious fragrance perfectly!

The concept is about loving with absolute freedom.

Who Wears Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme?

Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme is a nontraditional women’s fragrance created for a strong, self-assured modern woman.

With it’s woodsy/ chypre notes, this is a fragrance for a new generation, one that blurs the lines between feminine and masculine. It’s a scent that can be worn by either gender with ease.

It’s a character, it’s a designer, it’s an artist

The linear structure of the scent ensures it remains unchanged from the first time it is applied to the skin until the early hours.

There is no one absolute way to wear fragrance.
There is no one absolute way to love.
There is no one absolute way to connect.


My thoughts

Gucci Guilty is a warm new scent for intoxicating night’s on the town.

There is sexy romance in this perfume that makes it ideal for date night – whether that’s out and about or between the sheets!
