Very great and pleasant fragrance
I have really MONATELANG considered whether I should write something to the smell, because he is a woman smell BUT he has it simply deserved that one dedicates a comment to him!

I got the fragrance as a trial about a year ago and have put it on my hand a couple of times since then, just to test it and always the result was the same: Seeeeeeeeehr great fragrance! The smell reminds me somehow of my childhood, because we always had a lilac tree at home or it still stands there and I could never help but sniff the lilac. Besides, the scent reminds me of spring. Every time spring came and the lilac tree began to blossom, you could smell the great lilac scent from a distance. As a child I often climbed around in the lilac tree and even built myself a 0815 tree house. Those were times...

Personally I always find lilacs difficult... fresh lilac on the tree smells great but lilac in sprays e.g. room spray or perfumes always smells strange, so artificial, sometimes much too strong and just badly made. I don't know how Gucci did it, but here the lilac just smells like it should: Perfect! Perfect! It smells very natural, not 1:1 like lilac from the tree but very close and not too strong.

Mainly I smell the great, soft lilac here, of pepper and the other stuff I do not notice anything and if then only minimal BUT that is not bad at all, on the contrary! What I also think is great: The scent doesn't smell like other scents of sugar, cotton candy etc. so it doesn't smell sticky and sweet. A very light sweetness is already present but in a very pleasant way. With Gucci Guilty you don't have to be afraid of a sugar shock or a sugar explosion.

When I close my eyes and smell the scent, I imagine a beautiful garden with a lilac tree in spring. How it is pleasant outside from the temperature, the first bees fly from flower to flower and from tree to tree and all around many colorful flowers blossom and every now and then a very light wind goes.

If I were a woman, this fragrance would be 100% very high on my favorites list! If I would give a woman a fragrance, Gucci Guilty would also be very high on my list (if she likes lilacs of course).

With Gucci Guilty you don't do anything wrong, because he is neither penetrating nor annoying.

All lilac, no guilt.
At first sniff, all I could smell was lilac. It took several minutes to develop into something a little more complex. That being said, I think this is a pretty scent, but it doesn't really stand out as unique. It is a little sexy, or, perhaps sensual. There's honestly not much more to say about it - it's a little underwhelming for me.

short and sweet - guilt none
I really like the smell.. opens with a blast of strong pink pepper which quickly goes away, then I get peach, lilac and amber. This is a sweet warm fruity floral oriental on me. However it quickly becomes a mild skin scent and is totally gone by 3 hours so although I will enjoy my mini of it, I will not repurchase because of the low throw and short life. The bottle is interesting but the scent is nice but not exciting and there is no quilty feeling wearing this. Another misnomer, innocent would be more like it.

A not so 'guilty' fragrance
Although I hate to say it, I find this fragrance one of the most overrated and over-promoted perfume releases of this year. To be honest, not many of Gucci's female fragrances have managed to impress me, (with Envy Me 2 being the only exception). I had some hope for Guilty, however I find it very bland.

I have no doubt that it will sell well, especially over this Christmas period, but it doesn't strike me as something that those 'naughty girls' or those particularly daring would choose to wear.

To my nose it's mostly sparkling fruits with a touch of spicy pink pepper. It has a pineapple juice quality in the opening, however it's not nearly as acidic as other pineapple based scents.

It's pleasant enough, yet incredibly boring, leaving me longing for something with much more depth. Where is that beautiful, earthy and green patchouli note that I so constantly crave in scents these days? There is so much missing from Guilty's composition.

It took me a while to be able to smell this fragrance seeming that it opens so subtly on the skin. It doesn't have much in the way of sillage I'm afraid, nor is the lasting power that of an impressive nature.

The name and the shiny gold bottle just doesn't seem befitting of this fragrance. It's misleading in the way it has been marketed as something elegant and formal, when it is in fact rather casual. It reminds me a little of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle EDT.

There's not much else I can possibly add to this review. I'm disappointed and truly underwhelmed. It's predictable, but pleasant nonetheless.

Guilty of Insipidity
GUILTY? How about BORING? Having sprayed myself with my entire sample vial, I feel prepared to assert that the only thing Gucci is guilty of in this case is massive dilution. This liquid is so flimsy, vague, and insubstantial that it smells like a hundred other recent light floriental launches. All that glitters is not gold, and all that is "gold" does not glitter.

For a lilac perfume with something to say, I recommend Ineke AFTER MY OWN HEART.
boquet of flowers under a musk blanket
lilac+geranium= ick
If you do not like musk, you WILL NOT like this fragrance!
I can discern the notes though

Another very commercial scent by Gucci with a short sillage, a poor bouquet (I imagined something stronger!)
... but a high price!+2
