Flora By Gucci: Another Fabulous Fragrance For Fall


Oh yes! Another fabulous scent to share with you all. In my previous post I talked about my all time favorite fragrance which was Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy, but when I am in my sophisticated and feminine mood I fall for Flora by Gucci. Flora by Gucci launched in the spring of 2009 according to Sephora,

"This beautiful scent was inspired by princesses from the past, present, and future. The Flora Donna is a young, classic, and refined woman with the 'Gucci edge' of power and sensuality. The first Flora scarf was exclusively designed for Princess Grace of Monaco in 1966 and soon became one of the most popular Gucci icons. This scent is an expression of the Flora legacy. Its seductive layers mirror the playful details and bright colors that channel the heart of a fashion empire."

When I first saw Flora by Gucci in Sephora last year and smelled the beautiful notes of: Citrus Accord, Peony, Rose, Osmanthus Flower, Pink Pepper, and Sandalwood I was taken in and had to get it. The combination of the seductive floral scents already had my mind thinking of places to go to rock this scent. I was imagining myself in a beautiful gown walking the red carpet of Austin, lol. Well, maybe not walking a red carpet, but at least a night out with the hubby rocking a gorgeous cocktail gown and wearing Flora by Gucci.

It's funny how much I love this scent because when I looked at it today I can't believe that my bottle is almost empty, so with that said I think I will be hoping over to Sephora because during this time the of year you know they will have some gifts sets and to my surprise they have this one available in a set this year, Yay!! I must tell hubby to read this post, so that I can end up with a new one for Christmas, lol. The Gucci Flora By Gucci Gift Set ($94 Value) Flora By Gucci Gift Set $70, features:

  • 1.6 oz Eau de Toilette Spray 
  • 3.3 oz Perfumed Body Lotion

I totally would love to have this set because it has the body lotion for layer my scent or I can wear it on days I just want a soft scent of the fragrance on me. Now, ladies let me ask you something? Do any of you wear this scent? What do you love about it and what do you think about when you wear it?
