Gucci goes back to their roots with an opaque green floral with a white floral heart and a lot of personality, alla Gucci Envy. It is also cousins with Rush, given the tuberose heart that recalls Rush’s lactonic gardenia. It’s been awhile since I could give my family and friends the name of a department store perfume they can purchase for me. After a decade of sheer laundry-scented gardenias and heavy ambroxan woods, this one is finally worthy of the Gucci portfolio. Bravo, Morillas!

Fans of old galbanum-led green perfumes rejoice! This is the modern take on your beloved style, but obviously without the oakmoss chypre structure many of its forerunners had due to that little thing called IFRA. Instead, we're presented with a musky clean floral structure with a green leafy head note very similar to Annick Goutal Ninféo Mio (2009) but much less intense and without the tomato leaf presence. The same unisex potential is present here thanks to the similar emphasis on earthy "garden soil" tones, just with a much stronger floral presence borrowed from the original Gucci Bloom (2017), which was primarily a tuberose and jasmine sambac scent over musk and wood itself. Alberto Morillas was also on board for this scent like he was the original Bloom, and much to the same degree, I felt like he dialed in the brief to present a sharper springtime variant of the old-school-meets-new-school character of the first scent in the line. Unlike the original Bloom, this does not mess with such a prominent and notorious floral as the almighty tuberose perfume, and therefore feels less divisive for it, but the prominent galbanum in the structure makes it feel like more of a throwback than the original, since modern mainstream florals have been away from this style for decades. Like with Ninféo Mio, Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori (2018) will have it's strong but niche circle of fans, but it much less likely to be smelled on the street due to that sharp tomboyish green streak throughout.

The opening phases of Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori come in with that aforementioned galbanum with a bit of blackcurrant sweetness so it isn't stinging green like many of the older examples using the note. There is no shrill bergamot here or aldehydes either, just soft sweetness and sharp green notes whizzing around on top of the old tuberose and jasmine sambac accord lifted from the original Gucci Bloom. The fruity sweetness actually adds just enough juiciness to hide the fleshy facets of tuberose from view, and the honeysuckle accord further assists that in the heart alongside the pushed-down jasmine/tuberose tandem. The whole thing is very reminiscent of if one took a bit of Ninféo Mio and crossed it with Eau de Cartier Concentrée (2002), especially with the violet leaf-like note created by the way the galbanum plays with the star floral accord. The base of woody musk is infused with sandalwood to make it a bit smoother than the original Gucci Bloom, and a bit more natural in tone as well, but nothing extraordinary. Overall this is a less exciting, but friendlier and more-vibrant take on the Gucci Bloom theme, better suited to be shared across genders and used in the suggested spring time, but also across summer and early fall for day wear in casual settings. As with the original Gucci Bloom, Acqua di Fiori won't really appeal to modern noses hung up on fruity florals, fruitchoulis, or sweet gourmand woody amber and oriental perfumes, but for the left-of-center lot which can appreciate snappy semi-dry scent with an outdoorsy feel, this might work. Wear time is about average for something of this type, with medium sillage and sufficient longevity for a day.

Another possible candidate to try Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori is someone who isn't ready to dive head first into the niche world of tomato leaf perfumes like the Annick Goutal, vintage oakmoss paeans like those found at Patou, or hardcore green florals like Chanel No. 19 (1971), but still wants to experience this side of the fence with relative ease and affordability. I love green smells so this is right up my alley, but I am a bit biased towards anything with a nice grassy start so Acqua di Fiori "had me at hello" as it were. The original Gucci Bloom had some stiff competition both with tuberose perfumes of antiquity and high-end luxury/prestige selections that use obsessive quantities of the real absolute from the real flower, but this green flanker lives in a class sort of by itself outside of perfumes too old to be enjoyed by the mainstream, but not old enough to be considered "timeless classics" by the blow-hard tastemakers that do all the write-ups which decide for us what we're supposed to value. What this means is you can approach Acqua di Fiori knowing that you won't really smell like anyone else unless you're at a perfumista meetup, and if you're stuck working in the concrete jungle yearning for a day in the garden or at a park, this might be just the periodic mental vacation you need. To be quite honest, this scent should have been the pillar of the line, and the original Gucci Bloom made into a tuberose-themed flanker, as it feels more like a garden bloom than the original and lives up to its own packaging much better. Thumbs up.
