Gucci Première

Choosing a fragrance for someone else can be a daunting task. However, if you pay attention to how someone behaves, chances are you will have some indication of what fragrances they may choose for themselves.  Short of that you can always ask, but where is the fun in that?

Dolce&Gabbana Pour Femme

Dolce&Gabbana Pour Femme is an update to the 1999 version of the same name.  It contains notes of: neroli, raspberry, mandarin, jasmine, orange blossom, vanilla, heliotrope and sandalwood. The sent is sensual and a little sweet. The scent is very easy to wear and will likely get the wearer many compliments. I think this might me good for that woman who shops Ann Taylor for her day job but moonlights as a bartender (Yeah, it could happen )

Especially Escada Delicate Notes

Especially Escada – Delicate Notes is inspired by the original rose based fragrance, Especially Escada.  The fragrance is based on the light notes of the rose and balanced with of ylang ylang. This fragrance exudes femininity and is great for daytime wear. I think this fragrance is good for a young lady who acts mature beyond her years. She may or may not own a sweater set. $60 


The IVANKA TRUMP fragrance is floral with hints of sweet spiciness.  It includes notes of bergamot, apple, pink peppercorn, jasmine, rose, peach blossom, golden amber, vanilla, patchouli and cedarwood. It wears really well with a dry down on the spicy side. This fragrance is perfect for the young sophisticate. 

Vince Camuto


I was drawn to this fragrance by  its unusual notes, rum absolute blends and osmanthus, a rare chinese flower. Other notes include night blooming jasmine, leather, Bulgarian rose, patchouli, amber and vanilla.  The end result is smooth, gentle and sophisticated perfume that wears well day or night. Vince Camuto is perfect for that woman who is effortlessly chic. $60


Balenciaga L’Eau Rose

Balenciaga L’Eau Rose is an effervescent harmonious combination of green pear, blackberry, spicy notes, violet, rose, jasmin sambac, aromatic notes, cedar and cypress essence, musk, patchouli and iris. It start out soft and tender but it dries down to something a bit sexier and more sophisticated. Perfect for that woman who wears muted colors but may have a wonderfully outlandish statement handbag that she is only seen with on the weekends. $115

See by Chloe

“Draped in the natural elegance of her well known sister, the See by Chloe girl is instinctively playful, immersed in the moment. The addictive floral scent comes in a playful, multifaceted bottle, where the glass pleats and is adorned with three adorable feet.” Notes include: Bergamot, Apple, Jasmine, Ylang, Vanilla, Sandalwood.  This might be perfect for someone who pretends to be serious but who is really a lot a fun. $78.00

Ellie Saab

Ellie Saab has notes of orange and mandarin blossom, gardenia, rose, honey and vetiver.  This scent is light enough for day time wear but as it develops it becomes more suited to the night.  This scent is a bit more mature  but its is also sophisticated and elegant. This perfume is also available with a refillable atomizer, perfect for ladies on the go.   This might be a great gift for mom or to butter-up the mother-in-law. 


Gucci Première exudes sophistication.  Première opens with citrus notes that flash away leaving a sensual flowery musk that is anchored by base of Leather and Wood. The finish is complex and seductive and the fragrance lasts up to 7 hours. According to Frida Giannini, Creative Director at Gucci, “Gucci Première is womanly, intriguing and as seductive as the perfect couture gown.”  Perfect for sophisticated ladies who never miss an opportunity to brunch.

La Petite Robe Noir

The Little Black Dress or LBD can be dressed up or down and there is seldom an occasion where the LBD is inappropriate. With top notes of Bergamot and Black Cherry the fragrance starts with a hint of sweet citrus but is soon balanced with Black Rose and Almond.  La Petite Robe Noire is rounded out  with smoked tea, and the spicy woodiness of Pachouli, Tonka Bean and Licorice.  It wears exceptionally well, day or night. Perfect for that girl who can take a little black dress from Forever 21 and make it look like a thousand bucks.

Truth or Dare by Madonna Naked

It’s Madonna, so it has to be provacative and a little sexy.  It “reveals Madonna’s sensual inner qualities. Keeping the same silhouette as the original, it has been stripped naked to expose a beautiful amber colored juice, inspired by her favorite rose champagne.”  Notes include: Honeysuckle, Peach Blossom, Neroli, Vanilla Orchid, Cocoa Flower, Lily of the Valley, Texas Cedarwood, Oud Wood Accord and Australian Sandalwood.

Gucci Guilty Intense

“The Gucci Guilty woman will always demand more. Here is a heroine with the courage to follow her instincts.”   — Frida Giannini

In a lot of ways I have saved the best for last.  If you like Gucci Guilty, then you will love this.  Gucci Guilty intense is a more concentrated version of the original.  “The scent seizes attention with a flamboyant opening born of the natural rush that is mandarin – imbued with a modish transparency – shimmering alongside an audacious fist of pink pepper.” Other notes include lilac,  violet, heliotropine, patchouli  and amber.  “There is consummate craftsmanship in the bottle’s marriage of high- tech and high style […] Frida Gianinni notes: “I wanted Gucci Guilty Intense to feel like a contemporary objet d’art – to be as striking to look at as it is intriguing to wear.” Once you hold the Gucci Guilty Intense bottle in your hand, you will realize its value long before you even get a whiff of the sensually intoxicating perfume. This is the scent for the sophisticated woman on the go, she is organized, interesting and always finds a way to get things done. $102.

Gucci Première exudes sophistication.  It is the kind of fragrance I wear if I am having doubts about my outfit. It offers comfort, imparts confidence and allows me to feel the right amount of  effortless sexiness.  The fragrance takes inspiration from Gucci Première couture collection that debuted at 2010 Cannes Film festival, where luxurious gowns were created for Hollywood stars  Selma Hayek, Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz, Naomi Watts, Kate Beckinsale, Camilla Belle, Hilary Swank, bernice Beljo and Li Binn Bing.

Salma Hayek Pinault – Cannes Film Festival May 2012

Gucci Première opens with a quick hint of citrus that quickly flashes away leaving  a sensual flowery musk that is anchored by base of leather and wood. The finish is complex and seductive and the fragrance lasts up to 7 hours.

“Gucci Première celebrates the star in every woman. Whether she is holding court at a film opening or business meeting, all her moments are golden.”  According to Frida Giannini, Creative Director at Gucci, “Gucci Première is womanly, intriguing and as seductive as the perfect couture gown.”


Gucci Première’s packaging is as sophisticated as the perfume itself.  At first glance the bottle looks to be a solid block of gold, adorned with a medal and Gucci’s iconic horsebit, however, in the light of day or a flash of a camera the bottle shows its trasnperancy revealing its “resplendent, pale gold juice.”  Blake Lively, is the face of Gucci Priemiere.  Here is what Feida Giannini had to say about her choice of Blake Lively for this role “Both on and off screen, Blake Lively has that unique allure of the iconic leading ladies of Hollywood’s golden era. She reveals an instinctive taste in her performances, as in her style. Every project she involves herself in benefits from her charisma, style and intelligence. She is the perfect muse for Gucci Première.”

I find Blake Lively’s potryal of the Gucci woman very convincing. She is confident without be flashy — something that is not easily achieved. The campaign for Gucci Première “is a celebration of the iconic women of the golden age of Hollywood – strong, accomplished, glamorous and always ahead of their time.”  The print and TV campaign were both shot in the historic Sheats Goldstein Residence and directed by Nicholas Winding Refn.
