I have started developing a strong love for Gucci fragrances. It all started with Gucci Bloom couple of years ago and then I added Bloom to my collection which is a beautiful floral fragrance – a perfect choice for Spring & Summer. I recently added Gucci Oud to my ever growing perfume stash and its a gorgeous oriental woody rich winter scent shared by both genders.
It is said that this fragrance is a new version of Gucci by Gucci from 2007 following the trend of Oud Orientals. Gucci Oud came out in July 2014 and is mysterious, opulent and glamorous.
Inspired by exotic voyages from a time past, Gucci Oud is an opulent, new scent. Crafted from a reimagined blend of traditional Eastern ingredients, the modern unisex fragrance is rich, sensual – and unmistakably Gucci.
Its black flacon looks quite luxurious, and besides its gold lid, it also features a practical disc pendant with Gucci engraved and a horse shoe style embellishment.
The composition of Gucci Oud contains essence of Oud from Laos – 100% natural. The opening accords include pear, raspberry while the heard opens at Bulgarian rose and orange flower. Natural Oud Oil and Patchouli notes are followed at base. Gucci Oud eau de parfum boasts its 100% natural ingredients such as raspberries, saffron, and pears. A refreshing as well as intensive intoxication to make you feel absolutely free and sensual. Discover your hidden possibilities thanks to this aromatic essence.
The Oud doesn’t feel the center or the main accord as it seemed to be enveloped by some other dark rich accords but nonetheless, it is a beautiful composition and would be enjoyed by anyone who loves Arabian style of fragrances.
This fragrance has strong intensity and has moderate to high longevity depending on your skin. One or two spritz will help you get noticed but anything more than that, you will turn heads. It is a very strong/ powerful fragrance.
The fragrance comes in 50ml and 75ml bottles and can be purchased from Notino.
This is an incredible fragrance for special occasions particularly formal settings and I wouldn’t wear it casually. This is an expensive smelling fragrance so would suit expensive dinner kind of situations. The fragrance is very dark, intense syrupy kind and if you spritz on your skin, you will find the oil glistening. This is an evening fragrance for colder weather. Gucci Oud can be worn by both men and women. For a man, you need to be okay with fruity and floral fragrances but not too over the top to be able to like this fragrance. For a woman, this fragrance is perfect if you have lot of confidence and are looking glamorous as well as powerful that evening. I think the fragrance is really well made and is worth trying if you love moderately intense fragrances.
Until next time
