Flora EDP description
Gucci Flora Eau De Parfum is everything you’ve loved about the original Eau de Toilette, but more. The original captures spring in a bottle, and so does the EDP, but everything is painted in slightly richer and more intense colors.
Upon spraying, a kaleidoscope of tart, juicy citrus explodes, drenching your senses in pure sunshine – mandarin orange mostly, but also bitter bergamot, mouth-puckering lime, and sparkling lemon. This opening awakens you with a kiss, and will make you smile whether you feel like it or not.
The same fresh, sunny flowers we remember from the original EDT bloom in the heart of the EDP, but this time, the osmanthus is even jammier and richer than before, reminding us of peach or apricot preserves smeared lazily on toast. A touch of rose brings a sweet romance to the blend, as soft and as a petit fours iced with pink frosting.
The peony is even brighter and spicier than before. The florals come off as rich but still innocent, clean almost – as if you were lying in a meadow full of flowers at their peak morning brilliance. We especially love the sparkling touch of pink pepper here, which makes the florals sing and sizzle.
Overall, the EDP retains the soft, fresh innocence of the original’s floral thrust, but the EDP is undeniably richer and sweeter – a piece of red velvet compared to the original’s gossamer shawl. The increased opulence and depth is striking especially in the base, where an earthy, chocolate-like patchouli and creamy sandalwood reach out to wrap the florals in pure warmth.
Gucci Flora EDP has a sweet, brilliant, booming aroma that dresses a woman as opulently as a ballgown. We say take this one out to dinner. It will enhance your womanly allure as surely as candlelight, diamond earrings, and that little black dress that reveals a tantalizing hint of décolleté.
Richer and darker than the original EDT, Gucci Flora EDP still surrounds its wearer with the scent of flowers freshly plucked from the meadow, but with a velvety texture that leans more towards seduction than innocence.
