Arrived on the market last year, Flora by Gucci Eau Fraiche is a flanker to 2009’s Flora by Gucci, in the shape of a feminine floral aquatic that takes a new approach, fresher and younger, to the initial fragrance called Flora by Gucci. And, according to the description from the official website “the result is spirited, yet poignant, as moving as a spring flower”.
From the 2 variations (the Eau de Parfum Edition and Eau Fraiche) I feel that I would make an injustice, by picking a stand-alone winner, because both perfumes together with the original represent innovative creations that might find a spot in your perfume wardrobe.
The opening in Flora by Gucci Eau Fraiche brings an intoxicating aroma of citrus notes, bergamot and kumquat. Then, after a period of approximately 20 minutes, the scent enters mid development, highlighted by a combination between roses and rare osmanthus flower, juxtaposed to green and watery notes, to incorporate femininity and sensuality in the structure of the fragrance. The final phase is the moment in which Flora by Gucci Eau Fraiche turns to a feminine facet, thanks to the aroma of patchouli mixed with sandalwood.
The bottle that holds this scent preserves the same hexagonal shape with perfectly cut edges, while being topped by a white colored stopper with a matching silhouette. A black lace adorns the flacon’s neck, while the liquid exhibits a clear green shade. The model selected to appear in the video advertisement is once more the Australian Abbey Lee Kershaw.
