Attractive - but compelling?
What makes a great perfume? First of all, the fact that it is a great perfume for me personally and perhaps for some or many other people. Taste is first and foremost an individual matter.
Apart from the fact that a perfume, which deserves the adjective "great", must please me extremely well in all fragrances and their progression, it needs this moment, in which the anyway extremely attractive fragrances unite for me and unfold in their combination a stunningly charming, attracting, my physical and mental perception opening - yes compelling effect. Even as it fades away after many hours it still has to conjure a knowing and at the same time longing smile on my face. A good perfume must be compelling for me.
Gucci Bloom begins with a wonderfully unsweet jasmine, which is flattered by the temptingly sweet tuberose, but never loses its plain, almost austere simplicity. This makes it very suitable for the first nose in summer. The sensual iris brings an earthy note into play, which also makes a Bloom look good in autumn. Unfortunately, I do not know what the olfactory effect of the Rangunschlinger is. Perhaps it is he who gives the fragrance this green and at the same time mysterious note? In any case, this fragrance is great and at the same time really elegant.
The first hour after the application Bloom is attracting to me, tasty-herb, making me want more and hope for the great fragrance experience and then - well, then after about an hour and a half it gradually breaks down on my skin. It slowly gets a little more watery and at the same time takes on a slightly acidic note, which stays in the clothes for days and for me doesn't have much in common with the initially so promising scents. The Sillage is with me just like the durability on the skin rather medium to weak.
Not that the "Drydown" or the remaining scent would smell bad, but it doesn't give me the memory of the great scent experience I had, but rather a stale, sour aftertaste that he really doesn't deserve. Maybe my skin chemistry plays a trick on me and it develops organically and beautifully with someone else, who knows?
Anyway, Bloom is for me an attractive, but not a compelling scent - and therefore no scent for me.
