Gucci Guilty appeared on the market in 2010 for her featuring Evan Rachel Wood and then Pour Homme (him) was introduced in March 2011 featuring Chris EvansÂ both photographed by Mert & Marcus.Â And now two new enhanced editions of the originals are on counters, Gucci Guilty Intense and Gucci Guilty Intense Pour Homme.
Creative Director Frida Giannini remarks: “The Gucci Guilty woman will always demand more. Here is a heroine with the courage to follow her instincts.”
Where the original was an eau de toilette, Gucci Guilty Intense (for her) is an eau de parfum: a provocatively warm oriental floral with passion at its core.Â The scent opens with mandarin alongside an audacious fist of pink pepper. The middle notes reveal a blossoming of lilac, enriched with the sensual femininity of powdery violet and heliotropine. The patchouli that is the hallmark of Gucci fragrances reaches a lavish new intensity laced with an addictive, amber-rich sillage.
Gianinni observes: “In Gucci Guilty Intense we have created a fragrance that truly captivates the senses.”
Pour Homme Gucci Guilty Intense is an arresting eau de toilette opening with Italian lemon and invigorating lavender, undercut with a tang of coriander. Middle notes aphrodisiac orange flower yields to an unexpected masculinity reinforcing neroli. The patchouli that is the hallmark of Gucci fragrancesÂ reaches a new potency laced with the driest amber and a leather-rich sillage â€“ robustly earth, yet suggestively exotic.
Giannini declares: “Gucci Guilty Intense is a profoundly masculine fragrance that has a powerfully alluring quality to it.”
Giannini has kept the original campaign imagery for these fragrances saying:
“I was incredibly proud of our original imagery,” explains Giannini. “I knew we needed to learn more about these protagonists, to allow these characters to tell their story.”
I love this fragrance, it’s got the right amount of sweet floral to it, it’s feminine and sophisticated but not over the top sweet, perfectly balanced with it’s note combination, you can wear it day or evening wear.Â As for the Pour Homme, my Dad just loves it and hasn’t let it out of his sight since it arrived on the doorstep so I can say that it’s a winner here!
Gucci Guilty Intense Eau de Parfum for Her comes in three sizes; 30ml $ 98.00, 50ml $125.00 and 75ml $163.00.Â Pour Homme comes in two sizes; 50ml $103.00 and 90ml $130.00.
