“I wanted a rich white ﬂoral fragrance, a courageous scent that transports you to a vast garden ﬁlled with many ﬂowers and plants, a bouquet of abundance. The garden is as beautiful as women are; colourful, wild, diverse, where there is everything. Gucci Bloom smells of this garden in order to travel to a place that is not there,” says Alessandro Michele.
Blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas with direction from Alessandro Michele, the fragrance is created to unfold like its name. Natural Tuberose absolute harvested from India is interlaced with natural Jasmine absolute. Jasmine bud extract, obtained through an exclusive method of co-extraction that blends a natural quality of jasmine and captive molecules to impart a fresh green and petal scent on the skin. A plant used in perfume-making for the ﬁrst time, the Rangoon Creeper, was discovered in South India, and embodies the new scent’s concept and name, as it changes colour from white, gradually darkens to pink then ﬁnally to red when it blooms. The vine’s ﬂowers are redolent with a slightly powdery feminine ﬂoral perfume.
In vintage powder pink shades the lacquered square-shaped bottle is appliquéd with the Gucci label ribbed and framed in black.

Whether you have a high roller budget, or a shoe string discretionary spend would you ever purchase a fragrance you just don’t like…and then wear it? A fragrance is your sensory signature, it’s your lasting sensory impression you leave with the one you encounter. A woman or man’s relationship with their fragrance is an intimate bond. The scent of a fragrance allows you to be creative and individual, to create an alter ego or choose a particular persona - you choose who you would like to be that day.
Asia remains the dominant player in global skincare sales, with consumers across the continent “obsessed with” seeking to achieve flawless skin that is clear, luminous and seemingly transparent. To help cosmetic manufacturers tap into this growing trend for the appearance of glass-like, cloudless skin, in-cosmetics Asia (trade show) has announced hydration and haircare as two of these major focuses of its Spotlight On areas this year.
