Gucci Nobile Fragrance Reviews

Ah, my brother bought me this for Christmas when I was around 17. I didn't know anything about perfume in those days apart from whether I liked it or not. And I loved it, even though it is a more mature mans scent. And no doubt I oversprayed!

Wish they would bring it back.

I just joined this site for the sole purpose to add this review about Gucci Nobile. I wear nothing else. I have been wearing it since its introduction in '88 and the comments I get are inspiring. I truly never believed in a fragrance increasing your chances in luck with the ladies...until this little gem! I believe it contains pheromones which spark a woman's interest and I can attest to its success rate. Every lover I've been with since using it has commented how they can still smell me on them after they've gone home and how much they wanted me all over again. I'm not making this up! It has been discontinued and has entered vintage status which means you'll pay a premium, even for a 1/4 of an oz. I'm bidding all over the place to keep this fragrance in my possession. I'd recommend any single male giving it a try and doing the same! Nuff said.

Bring it back!It's a shame this is discontinued. The best Gucci and the best fougere ever made. I regret I did not buy a few back up bottles but I could not figure out in a million years it was going to vanish forever and ever...so painful....

Gucci Nobile is a, well, noble scent in fact, classic and refined, a herbal-mossy fougère with a dense and dark oak moss and tobacco base, smoky and classy, fairly spicy and completed by a classic masculine chypre accord (lavender, carnation, aldehydes...). Beautiful, understated, everlasting smoky-woody-spicy drydown. So classic it's almost ordinary: the quality and the elegance are out of question, but frankly it does not smell particularly different from several other equally good ones masculine scents of the '70s/'80s. Anyway, comparisons aside, surely a quality and elegant fragrance, still perfectly wearable and modern.

7/10

This was the most incredible man's perfume ever! I can't believe is discontinued, just like the best fragrances... Please, please, please: Bring it back!
I gave this to my brother many years back and he will use it, then return it. Then ask for it back (back and forth!)... Was undecided until he totally fell in love with it! Now he is sorry that we can't find it!

Oh by the way if anybody happens to have an empty one ounce bottle with a cap or just the cap let me know.. I have a one ounce bottle with a tiny bit left but no cap and I have OCD about those things..

I was able to finish my quest of hunting down the original Gucci Pour Homme (1976) and Gucci Nobile.. I finally got my hands on a tiny tiny bit of Gucci Nobile.. Here is my first impression of Nobile : Woah! Strong blast of citrus, lavender, and tons of rosemary and tarragon! It smells fresh, clean, and green but it does warm up and it does have a bit of a dirty side to it to.. There is a herbal aspect of Nobile that is a bit shocking to my senses, it may take time for me to get use to this.. This is great quality but very old school masculine and very mature! I may be able to get use to this but I doubt those around me will..

Was there ever a better-named fragrance?

This is upward mobility in a bottle. Citrus and lavender, backed by a garden full of spices and flowers, and an aromatic drydown of vetiver and genuine, pre-regulation oakmoss that engulf the fortunate user. This was the prototype, the classic template for fougere colognes, but none have outdone the original. So green. So classy. So damn Italian.

Why does everyone call stuff that goes back several decades ago...a classic?
Gucci Noble isn't just a classic...this juice is UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING which was given to us by the fragrance Gods!
I owned a 75ml bottle when it first came out, after many year's later, I still find this fragrance a really desirable fragrance.
The top notes of bergamot/tarragon with a floral note of cyclamen and rose make it an aromatic scent which curls my partner's toes....:)))
The mid and base notes of Amber, musk, sandalwood, oakmass, cedar, patchouli and finally tonka bean come together beautifully elevating this fragrance with a warm/sweet and woodsy aroma which makes this fragrance a really MASTERPIECE!!!
Longevity and Silage are both very high quality lasting well past 10hrs on my skin.
Overall opinion,
The house of Gucci stands for quality which explains why so many desire Gucci products and not just the name. Noble is a very dark SOPHISTICATED fragrance which craves attention when your wearing it. There isn't a day that goes by without any giving me complements on how sexy this frag smells on me.
Rating this frag is hands down nothing short of PERFECTION...10/10...★★★★★. I absolutely ♥♥♥♥♥ this fragrance. Bravo Gucci...too bad it's not available anymore.

Add me to the list of those who mourn the loss of this gorgeous male scent. It is difficult for me to describe this fragrance without sounding somewhat cheesy, but I will risk it because at the time I first knew of this fragrance, I was still a young belle of 22, so it is forgivable.

This fragrance gave to mind of belonging to a determined man who had class, assertiveness, yet underneath his cool exterior, there was an ongoing pulse of raw sexual energy. I dated such a man who was older than me but had the characteristics that matched the fragrance itself. I realized even more that fragrances do have a way of becoming "signature" and when on the right person, it is like adding that missing piece of a puzzle which brings together ALL the elements that make an already memorable person even more so.

I do wish that Gucci would relaunch this and keep it on the shelves. It is one of their masterpieces that deserves recognition and shouldn't have been allowed to fade in the first place. Perfect fougere with perfect sillage and generous longevity. I'm glad enough that I got to experience it. It was sexy and classy.

This is very nicely done and if you like fougere accords this could be your "Holy Grail" scent. And while it is a bit "soapy," it's also light, relative to similar ones. I just can't seem to enjoy fougere accords unless they are very weak, and that's not the case here. I prefer scents where there is another element to play off the fougere accord, but here the other notes seem to support it, though in a light, aromatic/green kind of way. This is also a little musky, but there's no animalic quality.

با سلام
گوچی نوبل در زمان خودش عطر خیلی خوشبویی محسوب می شد اما انگار زمانه همه چیزش دگرگون شده است زیرا که خیلی از کارهای خوشبوی قدیمی را بسیاری به صرف اینکه زمانش گذشته است مصرف نمی کنند؟! در حالی که بوی خوش یکی از آن چیزهایی است که زمان آنرا کهنه نمی سازد و قدیمی نمی شود مگر بوی مشک و عنبر و گلاب و گلهای بهاری و یاس در طول سالیان کهنه می شود ؟ تمامی عطرهای دنیا از همان چند نت اصلی همانند مشک و عنبر و سدر و غیره تا گیاهان دارویی و ادویه جات ساخته می شوند
پس یادمان باشد که اگر از عطر پورانوم یا جاز و یا لاگرل فیلد کلاسیک خوشمان می آمده است و آنها را دوست داریم بازهم از آنها استفاده نماییم
خاطره است و دنیایی از نوستالوژیک

I just received my first bottle of Nobile in 20 years. What can I say that hasn't been said. This is, hands down, one of the greatest men's fragrances ever created. I wish I could explain the notes I'm smelling but I guess that's not my strength. All I know is my nose tells me this is a pure masterpiece. This one sits atop Rush and Envy.

One of my favorite spring Gucci scents--I still have some in the small 2 oz bottle my aunt gave me when I was a little boy. If you ever want something that smells very close to this but don't want to pay $400 on Ebay, but a $12 bottle of Caeser's World or an even closer but more expensive alternative is Cartier Pasha.

This is still my all time favorite scent. Drakkar Noir 2nd. I still have a few 2 & 4 oz bottles left and use it for special occasions. Gucci needs to bring this back 4 sure. Always get lots of compliments when I wear it. Must go well with my chemestry ? Never have found a replacement for this one.....everytime I do shop for a scent ...this is the Standard I judge all scents by. It's crazy. However... Ambercrombie sells one for men called Fierce...that i wear as well. It has a similar wear quality but a diferent pleasing scent. I also get compliments on.

I still have this rare cologne after it was discontinued many years ago. How was I able to obtain it for free? Well my dad is not a big fan of any cologne but yet he received Nobile as a gift from a relative! He rarely wore it so as a kid I would sneak into my parents room and spray a few dashes on me and I would be off to middle school smelling like an old school pimp! Later my mom would whip my ass for wearing my dads cologne saying I was to young to wear that stuff...and she was right haha! I finally took the bottle with me when I started college.

My impression as I am typing up this review and sniffing Gucci Nobile at the same time...I smell a citrus blend with a touch of herbs laid out on a wooden plate. Its nice its not offensive and yet it stands out quite strong inside a room. Compliments are a welcome addition as you make your way from one lady to another! Oh yea this reeks old school pimp haha! Its elegant and if it was still available today at a department store it would still hold its ground against other popular fragrances.

I rarely wear it because I like to brag that I own half a bottle and even though its not the best... it still brings back memories of a time when it meant the world to me. If you happen to come across Gucci Nobile buy it and go make yourself some new memories with it.

I once had a bottle of this. It smelled pretty good (7/10 for scent), it lasted very well and had great projection (for some reason the ones that smell decent or less often do). The main problem I had with the scent is it had so many other fragrances that it smelled very similar to--Caesars Man is almost an exact copy minus a lime note and Cartier Pasha for men isn't far behind and Drakkar reminds me of it.

At first sight.. Green Juice in the bottle..... Maculinity plus authority in a bottle...my territory. I was lucky to grab the last 125ml bottle in a corner shop, I did'nt realise it at the time so I greedily "wolfed" it down thinking I could easily go back for another. That was nine years ago. Even on my travels I have yet to come across another bottle. Lucky me...at least I still got the memories.

Such a unique, rounded scent that I can't quite describe offhand, Gucci Nobile is a hidden gem that will grow on you easily if you give it a chance.

Gucci Nobile is most definitely an aromatic fougère in the style of Drakkar Noir, but it's much more refined and enjoyable. What captivates me the most is the green, herbal lavender-rosemary-tarragon accord in the top complimented by patchouli. The lavender has a "foody", "cakey" feel to it, the same sort of smell I've detected before in lavender-dominant scents like Hypnose Homme by Lancome and Rive Gauche Pour Homme. Right out of the sprayer, I get a BEAUTIFUL sweet green accord that I've honestly never smelled before in a fragrance. There's also a brown, dry tobacco note in there that isn't smoky at all. As Gucci Nobile descends into the drydown, it gets deeper and darker, at times crossing paths with the green, spicy tobacco of Aramis Havana, or (dare I say it) the rugged, oily leather of Patou Pour Homme. However, Gucci Nobile manages to maintain this fougère character all by itself and it stays that way for a while - the stuff has amazing longevity.

I can't help but feel that all the inexpensive, wildly popular aromatic fougeres of the past were all trying to be like this. Gucci Nobile was the prime target. Brut laid the foundation, Drakkar Noir presented the idea (it got sort of close), but Gucci Nobile perfected the aromatic fougère with an intricate balance between lavender, green notes, and herbs. A perfect, comforting fougère with everything in its right place had been achieved...

...But alas, Nobile was doomed from the start. By the time Drakkar Noir was the poster boy of 80's masculines, the aromatic fougère genre said "Fuck this, I'm tired of the same ol' same ol'..." and went in the direction of Green Irish Tweed, Cool Water, Eternity, and so on. Just like Bon Scott died just as AC/DC was reaching their apex of popularity, Gucci Nobile (and Patou Pour Homme Prive, respectively) marked the absolute perfection of the aromatic fougère genre, but died too soon in a sea of trendy fragrances going in totally different directions.

Flash-forward nearly 20 years later, a little-known house by the name of Alexander da Costa creates a fragrance called "Nobile Royalty", which is extremely affordable and has people raving that it's a resurrection of Gucci Nobile.

Well, I own a bottle of Nobile Royalty, and I can say that it's VERY CLOSE, but it has a sweet, tar-like note reminiscent of a Lush store that differentiates it from Nobile. The character is there, but he's not our old friend. Nobile stuck to that aromatic fougère character through and through, representing stern, reliable masculinity.

Gucci Nobile is still out there, but it commands astronomical prices. I recommend every guy with an interest in fragrances (especially the aromatic fougère genre) should try Gucci Nobile, if only to understand what a great fragrance smells like.

As a final note, people often talk about the best fragrances in each category: e.g., Shalimar as the best oriental, or maybe Joy as the best floral. Gucci Nobile is the greatest aromatic fougère ever made, hands down.

I had Gucci Nobile as a gift from a good friend on Fragrantica and what a surprise! It's rapidly becoming one of my favourite non-powerhouse fragrances from the past together with Insensè, Givenchy's Vetiver and Le Troisieme Homme. AMAZING!

Gucci Nobile is a great alternative to the vulgar ostentation of opulence and to the "straight in the face" attitude of pretty popular and pretentious niche brands I won't name here. In this world dominated by "Greed" and ignorance, GN is the perfect fragrance for the laidback guy who doesn't need to shout out loud his charisma and elegance. He's self confident, cultured, mannered but not affected, generous, traditionalist but not a pharisee, aknowledged, discreet...and noble.

A CLASSIC fougère with herbaceous notes, tobacco, citruses and a slight touch of lavander that's incredibly delightful. Gucci Nobile surely deserves a place in the "classic fragrances olympus" . Sadly discontinued. I guess Frida Giannini won't hear us...

Absolutely recommended!

I know what I am going to ask is an impossible question, do not shut me but, as a desperate lover of Gucci Nobile whose last bottle is going to finish very soon, I am looking for fragrances that are as close as possible to Nobile.

I have tried some (e.g.: Gucci by Gucci), but this way it would take ages, I am not an expert in parfumes or fragances so I do not know how to do a backword search starting from the Nobile's notes I can read on top of this page and find other fragrances that contain some of them.
In essence, I am trying to circle down to maybe 10 candidate to start buying and trying them

Any suggestion ?

Thanks

I use to own this frag, & while this is not my style, I can say that I appreciate the development of the structure of this frag. It is very much so a powerhouse 80's scent! Not for the weak of heart! Greens & lemon smell alright I suppose for that time. This is a mature mans cologne... But anyone who can pull it off would b fine. I am not 1 of those people.

Right out of the gate it let's you know this is no wall flower. Top notes are strong and assertive. After the initial citrus blast it settles down nicely into the middle notes (love the balsam fir) and then glides into the the base notes (nice cedar). For me this is a year round wear (holds up in Winter and frefreshing in the Summer). May be from the late Eighties but certainly not dated. A pleasure to wear and always gets a nice reception from ladies.

It's a shame this is discontinued. The only time I wore this was when I was over my friend's place - he had an almost-empty bottle of it - and I'd give it a spritz every now and again. Never regretted it, either. This is a very pleasant, deep cologne, a good dive into all kinds of greens and beautiful wood notes. Nobile is a man's cologne, without succumbing to the stereo-typical musky/leathery/spicy formula of other scents from its era. This definitely would be appealing to women who happen to be in your zone. Nice longevity, nice packaging, and just nice all around.

Overpowering top notes found in fragrances launched in the 1980s headed by bergamot notes, a common attribute among fragrances launched in the 1990s - why am I thinking of CK's Eternity?.

Excellent longevity and sillage. This makes of Nobile a very complex fragrance, something that is beyond my comprehension since I havn't got the time to study it.

Gucci Nobile is in the top 2 of my all-time favorite fragrances. Issey Miyake being the other. I have been buying Nobile since it was first released. Once I walked into a department store going out of business and found a 4oz bottle for $20...you know I snatched it up in a heartbeat! heheh Weird that the description mentions lemon scent, I've always noticed a top note of lime. I always get compliments when wearing Nobile. It has a nice masculine scent, not overpowering. I find it to be a very romantic fragrance.
