The new Gucci fragrances have been out since the launch on 7th March. The collection was inspired by Princess Caroline of Monaco in the 1960s. The wonderful man himself Roldolfo Gucci wanted to give her a scarf accompany her bag that she had purchased while visiting the . Roldolfo felt that nothing lived up to the royal star and so commissioned a painter, Vittorio Accornero to come up with something. The pattern or painting that was created was so gorgeous that eventually it was made into a house pattern. There has been previous success with Flora by Gucci but this new collection of fragrances pushes the bar high going back to its roots and it’s enough to make Roldolfo proud. Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini said at an event recently “With Flora by Gucci, I wanted to express the loveliness of the Flora woman charming, romantic and optimistic. Now with The Flora Garden Collection I am celebrating multi- faceted way the Gucci woman expresses her personality.”The collection includes the floral tones of Gorgeous Gardonia, the fruity scent of Gracious Tuberose and the rosy smell of Glamorous Magnolia. Not to mention the two other fragrances Generous Violet and Glorious Manderin which don’t need any explanation and are exclusive to Gucci stores only. Be sure to test these fragrances when you go past any store. They are highly priced as they start at £49 but they will have you under their spell once you smell them and will be running off the shelves. Happy shopping.
