Founded in Florence in 1921, Gucci is one of the world’s leading luxury fashion brands, with a renowned reputation for creativity, innovation and Italian craftsmanship.
Now the Italian fashion house is presenting Gocce di Fiori, a new scent from the Gucci Bloom family that encapsulates the scenes and senses of Spring. Blended to convey the budding first days of the season, and the heightened rush of promise in everything new, Gocce di Fiori is a delicate Eau de Toilette rendition of the original ‘vintage’ Gucci Bloom fragrance. Ethereal and soft like the raindrops that fall in Spring, Gucci Bloom Gocce di Fiori is a light, fresh version of the original scent.
Gucci Bloom Gocce di Fiori is created by the famous perfumer Alberto Morillas as ‘ethereal and soft like the raindrops that fall in spring.
Delicately perfuming the skin, the fragrance is reflected in its Italian name ‘Gocce di Fiori’, meaning flower drops. Gocce di Fiori is blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas, who also created the other Gucci Bloom scents from the idea of Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele.
Top notes: Jasmin
Basis: Rangoon creeper
Instead of a classical fragrance pyramid construction of top, heart and base notes, Gucci Bloom Gocce di Fiori opens fully at once with a trio of highly-concentrated luxurious ingredients: Jasmine Bud extract, natural Tuberose absolute and Rangoon Creeper (Chinese honeysuckle flower) – the flower that embodies the Gucci Bloom scent story’s concept and name, as it changes colour from white, gradually darkens to pink then finally to red when it blooms.
Like the original Bloom fragrance, in line with Michele’s ‘grandma chic’ fashion collection inspired by the ’70s, the bottle of lacquered porcelain, is square and colored in vintage powdery pink, decorated with a simple black and white label. It gives me an impression of clean, creamy, white florals. The box showcases an herbarium pattern of a red-and-white ‘toile de Jouy’ house print of leaves, a signature Gucci motif reinterpreted by Alessandro Michele.
Gucci Bloom Gocce di Fiori is available as 100ml Eau de Toilette.
