The prestigious Italian fashion house of Gucci launches a new collection of fragrances under the creative director of Frida Giannini. It comes out in May 2012 named Flora by Gucci Garden Collection. The collection includes five most important blossoms outlined on the legendary Gucci scarf designed by Vittorio Accornero for Princess Grace of Monaco. These five new editions are: Glorious Mandarin, Gracious Tuberose, Gorgeous Gardenia, Glamorous Magnolia and Generous Violet.

“It’s a sort of bouquet of scents,” said Giannini for wwd, “So Gorgeous Gardenia because I wanted to underline the gorgeously feminine side of this fragrance. Glorious Mandarin because there’s a sort of euphoria in mandarin, since it’s such a sparkly fruit.”

In the process of making these fragrances, it was very important to distinguish them from one another. The idea is that each fragrance should reflect a facet of the same woman. The fragrances come in elongated hexagonal shaped bottles with transparent rather than gold stoppers.

The face of the advertising campaign is Abbey Lee Kershaw, shot by Solve Sundsbø. The fragrances are available as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette, except mandarin and violet one that will be available exclusively at Gucci flag stores as 100 ml Eau de Toilette.

Nicely sweet and somewhat juicy fruity at first; almost like blackcurrent, but it quickly becomes "very" powdery. It's so clean, soft but strong at the same time for being so powdery. The suede gives a very subtle masculine touch and I like that. One spritz on my neck and it lasts about 8-9 hours on me and it rarely happens that a scent lasts this long. All Floras by Gucci are pretty awesome. I may attempt to acquire them all.

Beautiful, fresh violet & iris scent, mysterious, ladylike and quite gentle. I like it very much! It is ozonic and aquatic, perfect for warm season.
Usually violet scents are too powdery to my nose, so I am so happy that it wasn't this time!

Update: I've tested it again and yes, it is very nice, but I think that there is too much iris in this scent.

It has indeed a watery vibe, it is a nice violet scent, not the best, at least a fresh floral, feminine, nothing extraordinary ,but light and definitely airy!!
It isn't my favorite in the Flora scents, it is mild, and a bit ordinary..

Ozonic and floral are good words to describe it. I can't smell anything woody though.
At first when I sprayed it I felt a very strong alcohol scent. After some minutes it started to get soapy.
The more time passed the soapier it got. Smells like soap water or some cleaning product, not an expensive perfume.
Not good in my opinion but not the worst in this collection either.

This is an ozonic scent that my nose will only accept to wear in one season...Summer. I tried to wear it one day in the Spring, it was very wet, snowy, I didn't really like it at all. But now in the heat, I find it much more tolerable. In any other season, the cooler air it is just a sharp ozonic slightly aquatic mess. In much warmer temps the violet isn't overpowered by this,it is very lovely and vibrant, and I am able to catch the iris and orris, giving it a nice powdery touch. It is a very refreshing violet.

I would have liked to have more suede with this, but overall, this will be a nice non offensive summer scent. This one would be nice to wear to a bridal shower or wedding. Very understated and refined.

This perfume is true to it's name, it's a whole lot of violets :)!

The start is full of strong violets, which can be a bit too much for some. Then it gradually fades into a softer, gentle and lovely violet. There is also a hint of iris, giving its a slightly powdery feel.

I find it really comforting, gentle and stunning. I also feel like it's quite dreamy, and love wearing it before I sleep. I absolutely love this perfume. It lasts quite a long time on my skin - around 8 hours, I can often smell the lingering violet when I wake up.

I found while wearing this perfume it starts out on me as a heavy violet with a powdery note, after a few hours it dissipates to a a sweet mild violet with a hint of a powdery note. I find it a bit strong to start with but it dries down to something milder and lovely.

@Perfumedsecrets "The fragrances are available as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette, except mandarin and violet one that will be available exclusively at Gucci flag stores as 100 ml Eau de Toilette."

I'm sorry but you'll have to visit a flag store to be able to sample it - that is unless you can find samples online or get them from a friend. :(


By the way, to add to the description that states that the most Flora by Gucci scents are available in 50ml and 100ml, I've also seen 30ml EDT bottles.

Where can I find this perfume? None of the counters seem to carry it. It's missing...haha. All I wanted was a sample.
