What defines a man? Is it the man he has come to embrace, or the man he foresees to become? Perhaps that journey of becoming the man whom he wishes to be has a great deal to do with understanding the dichotomy of taking up responsibilities and the freedom that he yearns to have and balancing these two opposing worlds. At times, a certain scent will elicit such qualities in a man or reflect what kind of a man he is.
We had the opportunity to share a beautiful afternoon lunch with Gucci Malaysia at Chinoz On The Park recently, to allow them to introduce us to the brand's latest offering from the fragrance department - Gucci Guilty Absolute. The roadshow and promotion for the fragrance is from 28th April till 7th May 2017. It was a great set-up at the Suria KLCC Concourse area (just like the previous one which we checked out here before), to say the least and we were impressed by it all.
Born out of a special collaboration between Creative Director Alessandro Michele and maître perfumeur Alberto Morillas, Gucci Guilty Absolute embodies the liberated man it is made for - an innovative expression of a men's woody scent, yet it breaks the mould of a traditional woody construction. Alberto created a particular blend with a structure that remains unchanged from the first time it is applied to the skin. To do this, he defined the scent with two leading notes, custom-mixing a Leather accord Woodleather™ as a tribute to the House's leather-making roots, and from the majesty of woods, Goldenwood™, a new natural extract of the Nootka Cypress. Intensifying the fragrance's composition are three forms of Patchouli oils with sweet, dark and earthy character, and Vetiver, the fresh and earthy grass from woods.
The textures and colours of cigars and cognacs inspire this bottle design with clean lines and lean glass bottle, finished with a shiny black cap. A tobacco military-coloured outer carton features black interlocking Gs which keeps it classic. The scent is one which is enigmatic in a way that it spells the word masculinity, yet it leaves one the room to explore and be free, in a sense that the woody and leathery hint are subtle enough to capture the fascination of a woman as well, we personally feel. A very warm and pleasant scent.
