Guilty Absolute Pour Femme Eau de Parfum

If I have a signature scent, it would be this. I adore this perfume. I walked into an Ulta to purchase something completely unrelated, I smelled this wafting in the store and bee-lined to the Gucci perfumes where I picked up and smelled every one until I realized this was what I was smelling. I've never been grabbed by a perfume in a department store in that way before. I sat on not buying this for almost another year. I grabbed a test spray whenever I went into a store or counter, and felt like maybe this was too similar to what I already own and my other favorites: Stella, jm velvet rose and oud.... I first picked up the rollerball and as I tore through that I got a full size bottle. So this isn't like Stella, stella is a patchouli rose, but the rose in Stella is fresher than this one. Stella always reminded me of doll heads or baby doll diapers (in a good way). Then where Gucci has a more uplifting blackberry note, the jo Malone has heavier notes of prailine and to my nose, sandalwood, and obviously oud. It's not decidedly much like the jm at all.... I think in my head it's a mashup of those two and maybe blackberry and bay. The blackberry almost makes this a tad masculine. I think Gucci absolute could pass as a unisex perfume for sure. Because of the freshness, I love how this reacts with body heat. It smells great at the gym. But it also smells great on a cold winter night out, or day to day. The patchouli is refined. It makes the Rose a deep and dark, sexy rose, but doesn't steal the show. The patch itself is pretty quiet. In all, this makes me feel sexy, but in an understated way. I feel like it goes with every occasion, every day, every outfit. It doesn't give me a headache! My daily go to has been rose jam shower gel, the rose deodorant from native and this perfume. And it's a combo that is tdf I hope they never dc this.

Lipstick Satin

In spring 2019 Gucci released a whole new line of lipsticks in four different formulations under the direction of designer Alessandro Michele: Sheer lip balms, satin, matte and glitter formulas. I was intrigued by the fact that most of the shades are offered in different formulas and an overall wide selection of shades. All four types of lipsticks come in beautiful vintage inspired tubes. The satin formula shades are housed in a gold art deco style metal tube with a beautiful drawing etched into the metal. I bought the satin lipstick in the shade 201 Painted Veil, a wearable medium deep nude with tones of peach, brown and pink. Pros: - beautiful vintage packaging - wide shade selection - choice of different formulas Cons: - I find 201 Painted Veil Satin is somewhat drying on my lips - application is decent, opaque coverage with two swipes, finish is a bit flat, definitely more matte than satin - wear time is medium, about 2-3 hours - strange metallic fragrance that lingers on lips after application - $42 Overall I am not blown away by this launch. The beautiful packaging was clearly what initially attracted me to these lipsticks, and I still think it is really stylish and special. However, I didn't fine the wear time nor the feel or finish on my lips stellar. The shades are nice, but for $42 the choices in other brands is wide and there are definitely superior formulations available. But what definitely prevents me from wanting to expand my selection of these Gucci lipsticks is the weird, chemical smell of these lipsticks. I find it strong, off-putting and it keeps bothering me during the whole wear time. So, despite the really pretty packaging, I will not repurchase.

Bloom Eau de Parfum for Her

I love this perfume, I tried it at the store and loved it so I bought it later when they had it on sale from Macy’s. It’s a strong, long lasting perfume so you don’t need to put a lot on. If you put too much on it will be overpowering and can be too much. It has a nice floral smell of tuberose and jasmine. I feel like it’s a very feminine perfume even my friend smelled it and he liked it.
