He's hardly there before he's gone.
Something about this scent grabbed me. I love this composition. "Fresh-spicy" really hits the spot here, especially an incredible lightness of being I have in my nose. And the interplay between the freshness and the tobacco and floral notes is really great. This suits every season and every situation, doesn't bother anyone, delights everyone, is fun and in a good mood. I want to smell like this all day and every day!

Unfortunately, however, this is exactly the central problem. From the whole day is only through intensive and frequent reapplication what. The durability is really incredibly bad, after two hours, the fun is over with me. Even with the nose directly at the spray site, nothing more of the so great fragrance can be guessed. For me, the Wässerchen - even if there is Gucci on it - is definitely too expensive.

In summary, I can only give a good grade for the fragrance and the massive bottle, the rest of the criteria unfortunately really fall through the cracks. Too bad!

Quite good, but not a smash
Tobacco, powdery and synthetic sweet. Average woman-friendly, but not able to go them crazy. It's like a "good, ok..." but not "Wow, amazing". Good for cold days and evenings, business, but in my opinion not for daily use. I had travel bottle, simply gorgeous!

Underrated Gucci
This one gets much hate, undeservedly so, in my opinion. I feel the mistake many make is to use the same measuring stick to judge all fragrances. Not every scent should be noticed from across the room, or be expected to last over 8 hours- Subtlety is sexier than being overt and in your face. That being said, I think this performs fine, on par with most fragrances. If you look on the other site, there are many unsolicited reviews from women also for this, so I feel this needs more accurate representation on this site also. Yes, the one review here is from a woman, and she is entitled to her opinion, but I would like to share the fact that others do indeed enjoy this Gucci. In fact, most of them say it is indeed sexy and mysterious, check for yourself.

So, anyway, this is a nice tobacco-violet based scent with the cypress providing the interesting nose tickle in the similar vein as aquatics do. It isn't the most favorite in my collection, but puts a smile on my face whenever I sniff it, and I think more folks should give it a try. Also, the bottle itself is handsome, a timeless classic in its shape and feel.

Gucci played it safe
Gucci by Gucci pour Homme is certainly nice, but a little too safe in my opinion.

A sales assistant described this fragrance as being sweet, however I do not agree. I'm also not very convinced that this is a woody chypre.

I'd say that this fragrance is more of a woody aromatic. The scent is refreshing, masculine, yet bland. A little like Only The Brave by Diesel.

The cypress and bergamot opening, while somewhat unique, needs more strength. I appreciate that Gucci wanted to produce something modern and stylish, however they failed, creating something rather generic.

Gucci by Gucci pour Homme "is not meant to be vibrant, virile, sexy, attractive to women, refreshing or fancy." However from a female's perspective, women like their men to wear a fragrance that is memorable, something that they may smell elsewhere yet connect to you with fondness. This fragrance just doesn't seem to have that ability.

The scent dries down to something rather musky and subtle. Unfortunately the unique notes like elemi resin and olibanum aren't standouts here.

The lasting strength is very poor, terrible in fact, which is very disappointing. I do still recommend this fragrance, however not with upmost enthusiasm.

A nice fresh-green-tobacco-amber safe edt, a bit "all around perfume", but very manly. The ladies like it a lot (on men). Poor performance.

The classic aromatic edt for man with a light Smoky touch. Not so original and not so longlasting. Average sillage.Quite refined bottle.

Start is meh, but drydown is a crisp clean wood with subtle hints of violet. Good office stuff. Underrated in my opinion.

Very good scent. Very masculine. In my experience projects fantastic. Always get compliments. But the longevity is a disaster
