    Default Gucci Oud - New 2014 Fragrance

    Anyone gotten a chance to try it?

    http://www.nstperfume.com/2014/06/13...new-fragrance/

    Notes: Pear, Raspberry, Saffron, Bulgarian Rose, Orange Flower, Patchouli, Amber Musk, Oud.

    On the one hand, it's Gucci... probably the worst house of the big Italian designers. But it's interesting that they're taking on oud as well, and in a unisex fragrance. And they claim it's 100% natural oud. And it has pear in it. I'm confused... yet very, very curious...

    Never know, they have to hit gold somewhere in the road: will have to put in the test bracket...Thx for informing, as this perfumehouse last hit IMHO was Gucci pour homme but I've seen part 2 gets much loving from fragcomm ; so their take on a simulation Oud would be interesting what it will smell like...peace

    Yes this one sounds interesting, not just because of the notes but also because I don't think Gucci will stay down forever. They are bound to make something good at some point.

    I have a feeling this will be another joke that makes you laugh for an hour or two and then disappears and is never funny again but I'll try it anyway.

    If I have the chance, would be interested in trying this. Sounds intriguing.

    Yup. As a HUGE admirer of GPH I (you should see how many backup bottles I have... lol) I hope they come back. It's just funny to see this after Made to Measure, probably their most blatantly generic, overly-branded fragrance yet. I wonder if they've moved people around in their fragrance division or something.

    Sounds good. Don't really feel like getting to know it since it could disappear. I'm not a negative nancy, so if I get the chance, I'll check it out.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Will definitely sample but I don't have high hopes, given Gucci's penchant for releasing utter rubbish over the past several years.

    Gucci has dropped the ball these last few years that's for sure...

    It now is listed on the Austrailian Gucci website for AU$210. Australians rejoice! You are apparently first.

    2. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (31 wears)
    3. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent (27 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (22 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (20 wears)

    IMO this oud + rose bandwagon is even more annoying than "sport" fragrances.

    Here in the US we'll probably be the last to see it.

    I just sprayed some on about twenty minutes ago. Initial impression is light, synthetic, generic and the oud goes away quickly. You never know on the first try. So all I'm going to say is that it feels like you could spray on a pint of this and you'll offend no one. Seems to have some of the synthetic signatures of other recent Gucci releases.

    What a surprise. Thanks for your first impressions!

    Just bought this hours ago at the Gucci boutique while picking up another fragrance at Niemans so I haven't tried it out yet. Glad to know I won't be offending anyone by wearing this.
