Last autumn, the House of Gucci introduced Gucci Guilty for Her. This month they've launched Gucci Guilty for Him and it is nothing short of amazing. I previewed the new fragrance and, like all Gucci products, this one is incredibly well-made and very stylized. The scent is heady, sophisticated and fearless, yet young and fresh and definitely made for a guy who likes to live life at full throttle. It’s not for the weak of heart. Gucci Guilty is quickly become one of my favorite new releases — very masculine, very approachable and very charming.
The scent opens with an invigorating heady cocktail of Italian lemon and mandarin, crushed green leaves and a punch of pink pepper. Amazing. The middle mellows out with a fresh hint of herbs — lavender, cardamom and a little whisper of orange. The magic and the hallmark of any Gucci fragrance is in the drydown. In this case, a heady mix of sandal wood, amber and a touch of patchouli. The effect is remarkable. The sillage (that waft of scent you leave behind in your wake) has a confident presence but is never over powering. That’s the charm.
Gucci Guilty for Him is available now in Eau de Toilette, Shower Gel, Deodorant Spray and Massage Oil.
