Driven by the desire to be different – Mémoire D’une Odeur is a unisex fragrance. Acting as Gucci’s first universal fragrance, the scent was designed to transcend gender-specific constraints typically associated with traditional cologne and perfume making. I was attracted and deeply drawn to the bottle- it’s a vintage inspired design with intriguingly sensual tones.
The color combination of light green and gold on this bottle is the best I have seen of late. The simple but sophisticated bottle design is actually a recall from a Gucci fragrance in the 90s. At first smell, it’s easy to dislike this. It smells like greenery, like a herbal concoction. That’s definitely the Roman Camomile coming through. Camomile is not commonly used in perfumery and after a few minutes, it will evaporate of your skin and the other notes will come through subtly. Roman Chamomile blends its green aromatic scent with Indian Coral Jasmine, a flower known for releasing a more powerful scent at night. Musks add depth to the fragrance, while Cedarwood and Sandalwood bring intensity to its structure. If you like a bit of oriental mystique, you will enjoy this. In 2017, I was smitten with Gucci BLOOM. I found it poetic and floral but loved how original it was. The scent profile of BLOOM is that of a sophisticated bouquet — tuberose, jasmine sambac, lily of the valley, plus a South Indian flower called Rangoon creeper, which made its fragrance premiere in Bloom. I remember speaking about Rangoon creeper on Instagram stories a while back. I love that Gucci has incorporated another unique flower from India yet again – The beautiful notes of Indian Coral Jasmine come through strongly after a while, a note exclusive to Gucci, collected in India by the Italian Brand – Memoire d’une Odeur has 10-12 hour longevity and it’s an unusual fragrance.
No doubt this bottle will look irresistible on your vanity #gucci #guccimemoire #gucciperfume #parfums #paris #italian #fragrance #perfumery #india #perfumecollection #whatiwear #tuberose #camomile #scents #shopping #lifestyle #blogger
