The best ginger vanilla base fragrance.
It's one of the masterpieces of the perfume worl not because of discontinuation but It's a balanced hi quality scent which is definitely a niche quality scent.
It's a spicy green oriental juice that at very first you can detect ginger incesnse woods and of course vanilla in it ,gives u spicy green woody smocky sweet feel .
Envy is a mature modern confrontation.

About a week ago, I bought a sealed full 100 ml bottle of this fragrance. It's, without a doubt, a high-quality creation by Gucci, which has a very rich and well made olfactory structure. The best attribute of Envy For Men; IMO, is the drydown; the incense and vanilla notes provide a very nice gourmand vibe, which remind me some fancy wine cakes. I also can feel the vetiver and a soft leather note.

Honestly, I think it's kind of overrated in terms of performance. Its sillage and longevity aren't as good as most people say they are. Maybe the nostalgia effect provokes an out of proportion perception about its aromatic features.

Luckily, the price I paid wasn't as steep as the pieces you find on the net. It would be considered a bargain by many collectors.

Overall score: 8.0

This is heavy on spices, with a nice tobacco feel to keep it different from the others. Well done, warm, with a nice evolution. Sillage and longevity are good!

Gucci Envy for Men is one of the more hyped recently-discontinued men's fragrances, a highlight of Tom Ford's stewardship of Gucci.

A mix of citrus, ginger, amber, rose, and incense, I detect mostly the spicy side of the ginger and incense mix, not being distracted by too much else. Ginger is usually difficult for me to bear in excess, but in Envy, it is used tastefully, not spoiling as it often does. It has lighter parts but overall feels like a heavy-handed masculine takeover, a firm punch to remind of what we imagine that men's scents of yore must have smelled like, regardless of whether that's accurate. It doesn't indulge an appeal to barbershop freshness as a fougere would, but leans far more toward something worn in the winter, or at least at night.

Performance for an EDT is impressive, moderate/strong on projection and strong on longevity--back in the day this would have been quite a steal as far as a mature, classic-smelling men's fragrance.

Unfortunately, Envy's status seems to have become overblown, with bottles going for $200+ on eBay. While I don't appraise it so highly, I can recognize this as one I'd like to own and reach for, just not so much what the market is purportedly bearing at this time.
