Thread: New Gucci by Gucci pour homme
I just tried it at my local GUCCI boutique. This stuff is really nice! The notes of bergamot, cypress and tobacco leaves complement each other very well and give you this crisp, green sensation. One of my favorite realeses this year, it's going to my to-purchase list for sure.

Psst.. hot link!
The edition for men, Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme was created by Frida Giannini, creative director of the house of Gucci, in cooperation with Givaudan and P & G. The perfume is characterized as a modern chypre woody and includes notes of bergamot, cypress and violet in the top, the heart containing tobacco leaves and jasmine and the base notes consisting of patchouli, amber and Elemi – incense which is not derived from wood. When combined with tobacco leaves, Elemi contributes to intensity and longevity of a fragrance.

I wonder why the top is designed with an iconic representation of a horse bit.
The women's version hold the metal clasp that was part of the first Gucci handbags created by the company.
I am really looking forward to this one - anyone know when it will launch in the US and what store will have it exclusive?????
It looks like they're stealing a page from Hermes on the horse bit. Also, what's with the name? Why not call it Gucci PH III? Name makes no sense at all.

very hot bottle
*wishes i wasnt broke*
Oh damn, another dent in the finances on its way... ;-)
It does sound nice though.

Fantastic... I'm a sucker for Gucci scents and seeing how things are still quality after Tom Ford left (GPH II was pretty wicked) I'm pumped for this release. Is it available anywhere else other than Gucci stores?
last i checked at my local mall, it wasnt out yet. Sasa usually gets scents within a week or 2 from its realease and the've got to be the most up to date cosmetics/frags chains in Singapore. Other than the extravagant malls like Takashimaya or Isean, Sasa stocks a great range of to date mainstream frags at a slightly better rate.... got 2 back up envys and recently got the ph2, and i havent been disappointed with any of their male range. Envy still remains my fave from them, and tho ph2 was a little sweet overdone, it was above the average fresh frags and the bottle design also played a part in my decision to get it.
Gucci by Gucci pour homme can be purchased on line at the Gucci website. Shipping is free and no local state tax either in the US.
If you don't like it you can always ship it back for a full refund.
Kind of better then purchasing it from a department store - heh?
I was charged tax as well, to NY. And the sickness continues.....
Sorry! Don't give a heck about another wannabe designer frag.

I sampled this in a Gucci boutique yesterday - they said they are selling it exclusively for 2 weeks before it launches in retail stores.
I was extremely disappointed and underwelmed. The top notes are nice, but it's seems just like another in the line of fresh scents that seem to be the norm of most designer fragrance releases. I think it has terrible longevity. Both me and my partner tried some on and a few hours later I couldn't smell much of anything from where I had sprayed the fragrance and said to him "Can you still smell any of the Gucci?". He said "No, I can't".

Today I'm wearing the original Gucci PH and I'm a bit underwhelmed by the longevity and sillage. Seems that the new Gucci by Gucci PH is not an improvement.

Do feel that this is a summer frag, or more for winter? Is it particularly sweet?

This sounds very interesting.....thanks for the info.
When I saw that the bottle incorporated the horsebit, I immediately thought of the iconic Gucci bit loafer.
Every male should own a pair of Gucci bit loafers.
Looking for: Vento Canale, da Gianni Campagna.
Just got my bottle in the mail today and I have to say this quote hits it right on the head. Definitely subdued with a slight sweetness. More casual/daytime than night time. I could see wearing this to work any time of the year. Will give it a full day's wearing tomorrow but, for now, I'm really liking it.
Doesn't it have a slight similarity to Ralph Lauren Romance Silver? I quite like Romance Silver but I don't think I need another one similar. The bottle is topnotch, though. Very classy.
