Jasmine and tuberose, tuberose and jasmine. We’ve yet to meet a combination of these heady floral notes we didn’t like. And their integration into perfumery is as prevalent now as the rose was circa 1950s. This season however, quite possibly one of the best of these liquid blooms to land on retailer’s shelves is Gucci Bloom Nettare di Fiori.
The third and rumored final parfum in the Italian luxury fashion house’s Bloom line-up, Nettare di Fiori is clearly it’s star, like the prettiest budding flower in the garden.
While Gucci Bloom and Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori are olfactory masterpieces in their own right, animalic and aromatic respectively, this incarnation is a true floral knock out. Its first spritz is a rose bouquet paired with spicy ginger that captures your interest and holds it. Yet it’s not until the deeply sensual and robust tuberose, honeysuckle and jasmine notes waft forward does it take your breath away in the best way possible. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, elegant patchouli and intimate musk and osmanthus make their presence, giving the eau a dreamy, dark and mysterious quality.
Complete with a demonstrably feminine ad campaign starring Dakota Johnson, Hari Nef and Petra Collins, the fragrance embodies Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s ability to captivate, while the flacon that contains it is a near replica of its predecessors’ albeit with an aptly darker, black version of Gucci’s classic Herbarium Gucci Bloom print.
Gucci Bloom Nettare di Fiori, $98 for 30ml, $124 for 50 ml and $168 for 100 ml, available at Sephora.
