The best thing about returning by flight from a place you fell in love with-is certainly the duty free shops at the airport. It’s like the final good-bye hug from somewhere you do not want to leave. Well that’s what happened with me when I was on my way home after spending a lovely week in the German countryside. The Frankfurt Duty free shops-I wouldn’t call it a shopper’s haven-since I missed some good brands there-I so expected I will find NARS and Urban Decay-but found Dior, Chanel, YSL and L’Oreal-all of which I find nowadays in Kolkata. So thought about hitting the perfume gallery. I could locate many well known brands there and finally settled for a Gucci.

The website describes this perfume as having top notes of lavender and lemon, heart note of orange flower, base notes of cedar wood and patchouli.
Well this is a Gucci-so there should be a round of “aww” for that. But after the initial adoration-comes the scanner of critic. In the first few moments after spritz, the aura was awesome-I felt it to have a deep-seated sweet flowery fragrance beneath a fine citrus flavor. I know these all do not technically describe a perfume-but I am not much of an expert to define perfume by notes. All I feel is that it is sweet inside with a tangy outside. (Doesn’t that sound like a typical Sagittarian Woman???-hell yeahh-I am one !!!)
That's my first Gucci !!!
Good for women who like sweet fragrances with some tang.
1) Staying power is not that good-smell fades within 2-3 hours.
2) Price: Much on the higher side
Recommendation: I warn you, that this perfume is a Casanova-It pulled me away from a Chanel rack to submit to it. Its rather attractive-but with some downsides. So do try some other lines before settling for this one.
