About Rush for Men

The male counterpart to last years Gucci Rush for Women. The bottle doesn't look like a bottle, more like a cassette box. The fragrance is woody and has incense and musk notes.

Rush for Men fragrance notes

Reviews of Rush for Men

I welcomed any of the Gucci masculine scents as I explored scents new and old a decade ago. Back then, I ended up gladly getting Envy, original Gucci pour Homme, and Nobile. And I still do so today, with the recent acquisitions of Intense Oud, Made to Measure, Gucci Absolute, and Gucci pour Homme II.

Gucci Rush, though, didn't really grab me. It was present at nearly every department store tester counter I'd frequent, but every time I walked away thinking, "Hmph."

It's a woody-mossy creation, containing creamy sandalwood and drier cedar. But in the end, those notes don't convince me like, say, Comme des Garcons Wonderwood (a different category of scent, I admit) which does a lot better job highlighting the wood. And I read a comparison to one of all-time favorites, Azzaro's Visit: I prefer Azzaro's cologne to this one 10 to 1!

Anyhow...Gucci Rush for Men has its fans. Not me, alas.

Generic sweet heliotrope style oriental; in the manner of Kenzo Amour but lighter and paler, and here with a slight pique of incense.

Nice, but not completely inoffensive - it gives off chemical whiffs from time to time, especially at the beginning.

Generally pleasant, but bland, and compromised.

One of the more vaunted discontinued Gucci Fragrances (like Pour Homme and Envy), Rush for Men has a strong reputation and seemingly special place in the hearts of many male fragrance enthusiasts, so I decided to sample it for the first time by ordering a few sample vials off eBay.

The scent is itself is not at all disappointing, a fresh/spicy/woody mix of lavender, cypress, sandalwood, cedar, and musk, mainly. Several descriptors come to mind: versatile, year-round, masculine.

Performance is a bit more limited than I'd hoped for, being pretty modest on project, albeit with decent longevity.

Certainly Rush for Men is a fragrance I'd have in my collection if it were much cheaper (I imagine it was modestly priced on FragranceNet not so long ago)

This was the first designer fragrance I purchased for myself at the turn of the century and I loved it. I remember incense being the dominant note and the reason for my admiration. Unfortunately I also remember a shockingly poor sillage rivalled only by the likes of Davidoff Adventure. So for me a great smell but terrible performance. My current day replacement is Bvlgari Man in Black.

RUSH was first love. Perfect in any way!!!!
Beautiful creamy spicy sandalwood
Sad to say that my first impression of Rush was
Full day-lasting and huge projection.
I am about to finish my Rush and I can say that its performances today are less than 15-20% of what they used to be when I bought it.

I belive that RUSH has a very short shelf life.

Such a shame for such wonderful scent

I have been on a long long hunt for it's replacement

what's the fuss/hype all about? Wasn't discontinued, would it have its cult status, yet? don't think so.. just a skin scent...lame, lame..shame!
the bottle is simply ludicrous!
