    Default Gucci Envy

    this is one of my favourite frags of all time, but i find it really hard to discern its notes. the only one i can pick is a lily-of-the-valley.

    does anyone know the notes?

    hi odessa,
    I was going to refer you to the BN directory but was surprised that the notes weren't listed there. Here is what is listed on Perfume Intelligence:
    Created by Maurice Roucel; a fresh woody oriental floral parfum with green top notes of hyacinth and magnolia, heart notes of lily-of-the-valley, jasmine and violet on base notes of iris, musk and precious woods. This fragrance expressed the new modern identity of Gucci. Presented in a stunning minimalist bottle reminiscent of a modernistic skyscraper, a possible reflection of Tom Fordís architectural training. The advertising was overtly sexual

    Gucci Envy is extremely well-blended. I can't really pick out many individual notes either, but I love the overall composition. And "woody oriental" would be the last descriptive I'd think of! O_o
