Why Gucci Flora is my current Go-To fragrance?

“Perfume is the indispensable complement to the personality of women, the finishing touch on a dress.” - Christian Dior.
The last four weeks of my life has been nothing short of crazy. I went from having nothing to do all day to becoming a creative strategist at a production house, which meant going from lazing in bed watching TV to running around like a crazy person and trying to meet multiple deadlines. I’m sure a lot of you can relate to this situation. My mornings are so rushed that I pick up something from my cupboard to toss on and hope the smile I wear will make me look all right as I dash out the house. And even if I forget to smile, I never forget to step out without wearing my perfume and it will always be my “Go-To” perfume. I completely agree with my favourite designer Christian Dior as perfumes have become a part of me.
My current Go-To fragrance is Flora by Gucci. One of the reasons it has become my Go-To perfume is that it’s easy to wear and it’s a crowd pleaser. However, the main reason I have it as my everyday perfume is because I don’t have to think about how well it will go with my outfit or my mood for that day. It fits well anywhere, and for any occasion and that saves so much time and lessens the pressure. Gucci Flora smells pleasant and clean. Gucci decided to use a daring composition of citrus, peony, rose, pink pepper, osmanthus, patchouli and sandalwood. The only note that stands out is the peony. It has floral scent but not too floral as the rose and osmanthus notes are very mild. The base is a fairly bland woody musk.
In my opinion, a Go-To fragrance is something that you can grab and spray on without giving it much thought as it goes with every occasion. It might be a perfume you love or even a perfume you don’t particularly like too much. I have few Go-To perfumes and they are seasonal. During spring and summer when the weather is warm, I tend to reach for fragrance that smells floral or fresh. And Gucci floral is perfect for the warm weather.
Glamour tip: perfumes smell different on paper, and on skin. It will also smell differently on different people, so a perfume that smells good on one person, or on the tester stick, may not work well on you. Spray a perfume on your skin, walk around for about 30 min, and smell that area. If you like it, then pick it up.
Another reason why I like Gucci Flora is that it smells like a garden in spring where the flowers are in full blossom. A Floral scent is said to promote happiness and it surely changes my mood to make me happy. I personally think, Gucci may have had young generation as their target audience when they produced this composition. A Gucci Flora user may have a young and wild personality with a daring side, but they definitely prefer not to express it through their fragrance. They pick Flora as their Go-To perfume as it has a subtle fragrance that smells graceful. Gucci Flora is available in 30, 50 and 100 ml bottles.
If your walk past a store that sells Flora by Gucci, do give it a try as it may become your Go-to perfume too!
