Whoa - awesome! Guilty Black is the type that if I smelled it on someone in the mall, my head would turn, I would HAVE to know the name, and I'd chase the woman through the mall to ask, "Please tell me ... what is the name of that wonderful perfume you're wearing??" It's that type for me.
I'm kinda hooked on Guilty Black for Women lately, and it's my favorite of the 3 Guiltys (I have a bottle of each and really like them all). Normally I'm not a big of fan of red fruit notes (which are everywhere these days), but this is an exception -- because the red fruit notes add just a hint of sweetness and are deliciously darkly incorporated with the other notes -- without making it cough-syrupy at all.
The overall effect vaguely reminds me of chocolate-covered cherries or Black Forest cake -- mixed with woods & patchouli. Rich, deep, sensual, delicious - with a fabulous sensuous drydown. When I catch whiffs of it on myself, it's swoon-worthy. I'm on a roll with this one -- have worn it several days in a row, and I'm wearing it now --- mm-mmmm!
Here are the notes, per parfumo.net:
Top Notes -- Pink pepper, Red fruits
Heart Notes -- Violet
Base Notes -- Amber, Patchouli
Black is *not* included in the Gucci mini set -- only the orig & intense Guiltys are included, but not Black. The name "Black" is confusing and almost a misnomer really, IMHO -- because the perfume includes red fruit notes and shows red liquid thru the hole in the bottle -- so it's really more "red" than "black". I hope that Black sells well and never becomes discontinued.
