There is beauty in harmonious dichotomy – that’s why we’re absolutely stoked about Gucci’s newest fragrance for women. Soft yet intense, feminine yet strong, Gucci Bamboo seems to be the perfect scent to channel that inner sophistication.
At first glance, the distinctive bottle charms with its simple and sleek design. Modern luxe incorporated with a touch of nature, the classy diamond-style glass facets are juxtaposed against the curved, feminine cap, which cleverly plays on the contours of the bamboo plant. The box is framed by the silver G’s that mimic bamboo shoots, creating a gentle contrast to the soft pink shade. Although the packaging isn’t exactly fancy, we love how it exudes an understated elegance, which you can never go wrong with.
Moving on to the scent: expect an alluring blend of woody and floral notes. Though contrasting in character, the notes of sandalwood, heady Tahitian Vanilla and grey Amber complement the exotic, soft floral scents of Casablanca Lily, Orange Blossom and Ylang Ylang. Initially strong and passionate, the fragrance then settles down to a delicate mix of fresh femininity.
Oh, and did we mention the gorgeous face of this summer fragrance? Gucci Bamboo is fronted by Israeli star Gal Gadot, who will play the iconic heroine Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman V Superman film. The emerging actress, also known for her role as Gisele Yashar in The Fast and Furious film series, aptly depicts the modern Gucci woman – full of confidence, vitality and beauty. Girl power reigns in this summer scent, and we certainly can’t wait to spritz it on for a night out with the girlfriends.
