This week’s exclusive newsletter subscriber giveaway: Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori
Here’s a wonderful summer fragrance that takes a spicy-floral composition and adds just a hint of green notes to give it a fresh twist. Green fragrances can be overwhelming but this is masterfully blended to give it slight green effect. Alberto Morillas, arguably the finest perfumer on the planet right now, blends tuberose, jasmine, Chinese Honeysuckle (called Rangoon Creeper), musk, sandalwood and green accords. The drydown is woody and musky giving it a warmth.

The ad campaign stars actress Dakota Johnson, Hari Nef and Petra Collins floating in a shimmering lake surrounded by flowers and reeds. The entire project was directed by Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele.
The Giveaway: I gave away a Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori to one lucky newsletter subscriber. To enter, I invited readers to tell me in a blog post comment what is their favourite fragrance note in this scent. Yolanda P told us and we drew her name from all entries. Congrats Yolanda!
