The shy deer in the cone of light of your temperament - more man than perfume
He's fire. Fire with smoke and flames that burn down my whole world. The rhythmic sounds of the drums resounded loudly in my dumb soul.

What am I doing here? I am, am I? Who still knows me, so I am now nevertheless a new one.
I'm risking everything right now: live someone else's life. Without fear of loss, without thinking big. I feel with every fiber, the time is ripe for new ways, for courage, passion and risk.
I'm not sure if I actually crave what I think.
But considering my constitution, I shit on conventions and feel, taste and smell what my heart desires.
You were in the right place at the right time and you saved my soul. You set me on fire.
Your fire has resurrected my spirits from the deepest dust, colored them and revealed to me a world I could not dream of.

You're as beautiful as the moon. Radiates warmth, security and diabolic energy. I am in a state of intoxication from which I can no longer escape.
Alarm bells burst like fine glass and evil thoughts evaporate from you at every touch. Just smile at my carelessness, I melt like candle wax or burn like a silk scarf...
I turn barefoot in the cold November rain until I sink to the ground dazed and still can't get you out of my mind.

Life, what else do you have for me?

I'm sweating, I'm freezing. Where are you? Where are you? Are you real? You were my miracle, you gave me what I didn't ask for...
Fast and powerful, the poppy on the cornfield shoots towards the sun. You neither bought me, nor impressed me, yet you gave rich without demanding. All the money in this world cannot outweigh what you selflessly gave. You reached out your hand to me and left traces in me.
A shiver comes over me when I think of the night in the fog. As similar as we are, as strange as we are. Trembling with cold, I wait for you. Everything around us seems far away to you and you gently close my cloak, you pay attention to me with a clear simplicity and quiet affection.
Tenderly you took my chin in your hand, forced the kiss of your longing upon me. A light-footed warmth shot through the impenetrable view.
No one saw my free stroke, no one.
Wrapped in your mighty apparition we stood there, lonely and ardent with expectation. It was liberating and engaging at the same time to feel your lips on mine, to finally touch you, to give in to what was going on in my mind for so long.
You are the true design of my imagination of the man with whom I achieve everything.
You once said I was the woman you mastered everything in life with.
This has reached me and brought me closer to you than any simple conversation. You've always triggered the sore spot I've longed for in different situations.
Game? Or fate? Who the fuck are you? And who am I to you?

I, the shy deer, stopped in the cone of light of your temperament. Your smile makes me crumble into hoarfrost and dance passionately and gracefully in the wind at the same time.
Blinded and seized by your being, I dream with open eyes of your touches.

In the nose, your scent...
Leather, leather, leather... as authentic as maple syrup-coloured leather seats, a coarse biker jacket with cracks and folds... a hot, minimal sweetness reinforces the breathtaking impression you make of me like a disastrous storm breaking in.
I get instant soft knees and become a weak fair game hypnotizing your voice as the lights of the skyline rush past us.
Life is crazy. You open dark floor hatches to ice-cold, wet basements full of radiant diamonds. Cast me under your spell - but protect me.

Leather and nothing else?
Normally I would say a few words here about the opening and the further scent of a perfume. However, this is not necessary at all here, because hardly sprayed on, this fragrance unfolds, or should we rather say smell, with a concentrated load of extremely smooth leather clothed in a dark vetiver note on a base of patchouli and some wood. Even the wood is only a leather wood aroma which perfectly supports the overall scent thanks to a large ladle Iso E Super. A further development does not take place any more until the complete drying If you close your eyes you might think you are in a very exclusive leather shop. Series after series, a wide variety of leather clothes from renowned fashion houses are hanging, just waiting to find a new owner. A smell of tanned, petrol-like leather with a touch of rubber hangs in the air and exudes luxurious exclusivity.
Longevity and sillage are at a high level and only after about 8 hours does the perfume become very close to the skin and finally decompose.
For me, Gucci Guilty Absolute is a men's fragrance, simply drawn but elegantly crafted, that does exactly what it was created for. It smells like leather and the rest is just a minor matter ..

Like a punch in the face of some, great love for me.
This fragrance polarizes to the maximum. Great love or extreme hate with nothing in between, 50/50. Some feel insulted by him. For me, however, it is the most wonderful, most honourable, most impressive, most amazing leather of all time. Childhood. The original 50's bag from my father's binoculars with which I always played. Heir to his great-grandson. GGA smells like the leather of this bag. Leather from the 50s. Wonderful. A very special experience

Gucci & the mechanics
This is one of the weirdest perfumes that i have un my collection. When i wear It It is like wearing burned oil or gasoline. It reminds me to the car workshop smell. It is true that there similar scents like for example duro by nasomatto or ombre leather by Tom Ford but this is for me one of the best i have tried according Also yo his price. Original and different yo the mass perfumes but no a compliments catcher. Probably oeople even cant realize tht you are wearing a perfume... More to selfenjoy... Longevity is very good... It lasts for days on clothes...

l'air de cuir
i place this fragrance somewhere between givenchy gentleman (without the zibet) and a flat eau du fier (which unfortunately has long since been taken off the market) without its jus de veau- o. smoked ham - aspect and campfire-realism, to which one added a plaster note - interesting statement, which obviously winked in the direction of tom Ford's golden design-era and would like to prove its reference to the texan grandmaster of porn chic, in order to make the meanwhile rollicking image of the house hereby self-confidently postmodern and tasty for a new and young generation. unfortunately the perfume lacks some juice and 'dirt' to make it more three-minimal and natural ...
anyway: hat off to a fragrance that finally dares to get by without sugar!
p.s.
could work wonderfully as a base under other leather and patchouli perfumes

Absolutely gorgeous manly scent leading Gucci recent (r)evolution
A turmoil has been taking place at Gucci after the appointment of a new creative director, Alessandro Michele, two years ago. In the fragrances department a handful of women perfumes, along no less than fourteen Gucci scents in The Alchemist's Garden unisex niche line, have been launched after Guilty Absolute pour Homme.
We also saw new sequin neck bow ties, serpent embroidered dinner jackets and fur-lined Gucci loafers. Just like in Gucci other collections, we may see a mix of messages behind the new men scent that is probably the banner of the Gucci new winds of change. The woodleather ingredient is an homage to the ultimate Gucci materials, while the flask is finished with details inspired by the beauty lounge line and the liquid is the colour of manly cigars and cognac.
You might not instantly recognise the work Alberto Morillas as it is far from its traditional creations. Morillas defined the Gucci Guilty Absolute scent with two leading notes: Woodleather® and Goldenwood®.
- Woodleather is an obvious tribute to the House’s leather making roots, and a rare type of the common leather note.
- Goldenwood is a new natural extract of the Nootka Cypress. While conducting researches in the Royal Botanical Gardens’ Archive, Morillas came across the Goldenwood ingredient, and selected it specially for this fragrance. The resulting scent features deep ultra-dry woody leather scented manly notes.
Vetiver has also been chosen for the fresh and earthy smell, while three forms of Patchouli oils are used to intensify the overall scent.
The fragrance is half way between a linear scent, and an evolutionary fragrance leaded by leather, followed by patchouli and finished by a woody/vetiver scent.
The bottle is a stylish upgrade from the best-selling classic Guilty fragrances. The flask is smooth almost sleazy simple, and the glass is transparent and finished with a shiny black cap. The packaging is military brown coloured, featuring black interlocking Gs.
Seen from the atemptive enthusiast angle, nothing seems to have been left at random in what concerns scent and style.
Performance is very good in deed - another novelty in Alberto Morillas work - with up to ten hours of longevity, applying three sprays, and a sillage good enough for five feet with two and an half hours of projection.

Guilty Absolute pour Homme is, to date, the last Gucci perfume only for men. It is also the last but one edition of the Guilty line because Guilty Oud is a new unisex oud fragrance and was released in 2018. Aparently Guilty Oud follows the same style trend initiated with Guilty Absolute pour Homme.
I really love and recommend this still new Gucci Absolute Scent. Are we going to witness the come back of bold Gucci perfumes like Gucci 1 and Envy?

Maybe a little too much?
In contrast, Terre d´Hermes is almost a mild breeze.
Should actually only be called *Leather Extreme*! Careful dosing is the order of the day. Durability was with me loosely with 15 hours Top quality, but Mr. Morillas lets unfortunately
of the leather. Other is hardly recognizable.
Some women ( or men ) will certainly like it, but others will also
be somewhat stringing.
Despite everything a completely independent, high-quality scent.

one punch mickey
Sooo... I haven't posted anything on parfumo in a while. To be honest gab´s also no new release in the last 2-3 years which caused my humble self to give my mustard to it. Now it's time. Well, even with the GGA (=Gucci Guilty Absolute) I probably wouldn't write anything, but I got the fragrance 2 days ago as a gift from my brother. And by mistake.
It's like this (there's no umlaut a people on my keyboard :) so I always write with ae) that unlike most of you here I'm into the original Gucci Guilty. The scent is just good for me. Simply the fragrance and the whole package with bottle, color, packaging, Chris Evans, hairy chest etc. I know the commercials achieved what they wanted ;)
Tja my Brother went to the perfumery and wanted to buy with the Guilty Intense, instead he bought the Absolute, as gesgat by mistake. He gave me the bag, I took out the pack and lo and behold, it was a brown pack instead of black. I knew what that meant because I had already tested the Gucci Absolute. Not even on the paper tire, let alone on my hand, but only briefly sniffed at the spray head. Exactly that was enough for me :)

Booom...like a punch from One Punch Mickey alias Brad Pitt in the movie classic "Snatch Pigs and Diamonds" by Guy Ritchie. Who knows the film (I hope everyone, otherwise watch it the same, that is cult) knows what I mean. You have to take a breath after the first sniff. The new Gucci (Ok, he's not soo new either) kicks your socks off. But above all, I believe that this is due to the fact that these days men's fragrances are no longer produced, except perhaps in niche markets. It doesn't have anything sweet or fresh about it like 99% of all men's fragrances nowadays. He just smells pitiless... MAN. Maybe to much?

Hmm, definitely not for everyone. Smells very strong leather, and definitely suitable for autumn and winter.
That's why I didn't test on the skin in the first place. That was just too much for me.

Well and exactly this one I got from my little brother :) He didn't have the bill anymore, they said from his mouth. Therefore I had no choice but to tear away the outer foil and immediately give a sprayer on the back of my hand. Well, it turned out shortly afterwards that he still had the bill. What a theater.

I've had the scent for 2 days now and I have to say..I can't stop smelling on the back of my hand.
Oh yes, the scents on my skin smell the same as on a strip of paper. So nothing there with scent development and so on. But I must say this Gucci is doing quite well on my skin. He's getting a little softer. Not as extreme as a bottle. He's getting a little tamer. But just something. But that's enough for me. So it's portable for me. But this initial force of the fragrance is quickly lost again. Would wish me a longer shelf life and a slightly better Sillage.

Nevertheless I'm looking forward to autumn ;) With a leather jacket and my suede boots it will fit so well. So rather to a rougher clothing style.
But I think it would also fit very well to a suit and coat. However, I always associate brown leather with the scent (brown leather jacket, brown leather boots). Probably due to the color of the perfume.
You all know Gaultier's "Ulta Male"... Ultra Male :D ..must always grin at the name, because it doesn't match the fragrance at all. Gaultier's Ultra Male is pretty feminine. The term "ultra male" has nothing to do with that, but all right. Advertising. What I'm saying is, THE GUCCI HERE, that deserves that name. I mean come on people, this scent from Gucci is testosterone high 10. I feel with my 30 years old with the scent equal to 5 years older. It radiates masculinity and maturity. I'm sure that this Gucci is exactly what most of the people behind you are doing on the street.

On the other hand, he splits the spirits. Maybe some of them will change sides as well. It's not something you like to see. Not that this has already happened to me :D But I imagine kann´s.

As described I wasn't enthusiastic about the Guilty Absolute in the beginning, but it only took 2 days to learn to love him. I'd like to say that he smells very high quality. For me, then. I've already read the opposite here. But for me it seems very natural.

Flacon, color of the brew, packaging...for me everything is a feast for the eyes at this product. And the best part is, he'll never be mainstream, since I'm pretty sure.

And finally...if movies could smell, "Snatch" would clearly smell like Gucci Guilty Absolute, with its plot and all its characters. Especially One Punch Mickey, Turkish & Frankie "fucking" four fingers.

In the end it was a positive mistake ;)

Replica
When I withdrew money today in the city centre to possibly have change for the private sale of sunglasses, I got the call that the buyer unfortunately could not come after all. Well, on the one hand it was annoying, but on the other hand I could go back to the turquoise and see if they finally have something new again. Unfortunately, I am usually one step ahead of the branches in Austria and could only find the new Annayake at untested (irrelevos).
Now I walk through the shelves because I don't want to go home without fragrance on my wrist. Then I saw Gucci Guilty Absolute and remembered the first time I tested him on a strip of paper: Bah, no, I can't. In the meantime I have also tested other leather scents and expanded my scent horizon, as well as my scent tolerance a little. So let's test 2 right on your wrist.
The beginning is for me as frightening as the first time. You get the full force of Woodleather *registered trademark symbol* in your face and you have to prune for a short time. But since I tested it last time on a paper strip, I let it develop. Gradually something really floral develops, almost herbaceous. He loses the extremely scratchy and massive one bit by bit, but the leather smell is definitely still there.
Where La Yuqawam pour Homme reminds me of a freshly bought leather jacket worn by a girl with raspberry perfume, the Guilty Absolute gives me the leather couch flavor already mentioned several times. However, for me this is not a new couch, it is already properly sat in. Mixed with the aromas of the living room, the regular use of febreze to cover up mummy's occasional smoking, which is never really to get rid of. Guilty Absolute reminds me of the smell of the taxis in Sofia that stew in the sun with leather salon at 40°C and later bring you from traffic jam to traffic jam to your destination.
With all these memories, I'm almost surprised we're talking about Gucci here. Considering how uninteresting the other flankers have been so far. You could almost think that this is a fragrance that Replica would have liked to release.

REPRODUCTION OF FAMILIAR SCENTS AND MOMENTS OF VARYING LOCATIONS AND PERIODS
Originally: Balkan Taxi Drive
Provenance and Period: Sofia, 2007
Fragrance Description: Leather interior and Magic Tree
Style Description: ????

This brings me now to my last point and that is affordability. Since I've been with Parfumo for almost a year now, I can also appreciate fragrances that I personally don't like. I understand what can be clever about it and what others love about it. That's what I see here. It's just a very authentic leather scent. However, I personally could never imagine wearing it. Neither would it suit any of my acquaintances or relatives. Maybe you could wear it on Halloween if you wanted to dress up as Leatherface. Perhaps it would be an advantage for hide-and-seek, since you would be even less noticeable behind the leather couch of the neighboring family. Otherwise I'd probably never wear it.

At this point a brief reminder of all those who might feel trampled on their feet by my commentary: As always, this is my own opinion and everything is subjective. I'm glad he could bring you joy.

Gucci Guilty Absolute pour Homme
A niche-like fragrance from a designer house? I am loving this!

For the longest time I have been tired of designer perfume houses playing it safe with the same old fresh and bland crap fragrances that they have been inundating consumers with. Gucci's new director is like a breath of fresh air for the designer fragrance industry.

Guilty Absolute is a wonderful and satisfying linear masculine leather fragrance that will last all day on your skin and at least a week on your clothes!

If you like fresh and safe fragrances, go elsewhere. If you like a different or avant garde leather fragrance, this is for you.

A solid 10/10

Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme Review
This is my Gucci Guilty Absolute Review video. Picked up a bottle of Gucci Guilty on the day our San Francisco Gucci boutique started selling it and have been wearing it and enjoying the scent very much. I must say Gucci Guilty Absolute is not an original scent because I’ve actually smelled Gucci Guilty Absolute somewhere in the past. Possibly from a niche perfume release somewhere I'm thinking. I most likely saw Vetiver in the notes and gave it a chance. So I love Vetiver in fragrances but I can’t remember what that fragrance was. Bummer. But for a designer release Gucci Guilty Absolute is a very unique scent and I’m happy Gucci is making a comeback and releasing more bolder fragrances. As mentioned in the video this is my first Gucci fragrance in ages. The last fragrance I bought from Gucci was Gucci Pour Homme 2 GPH2 but I bought GPH2 much after when it was launched and the hype had died down as it is a pretty great release. But the last real Gucci release I bought was Gucci Rush back in 2001/2002 and Guccy Envy back in 1999 and 2000. Everything after that I dismissed until now with Gucci Guilty Absolute. Watch my video to find out more about Gucci Guilty Absolute. Thank you.

From a cowshed to a leather jacket
What can you find in a bottle:

* On a blotter it opens with a civet-like note which is almost shocking. Something rather to expect within a niche range of perfumes than in a mainstream scent. Camels, horses and cowsheds may come into the mind, though oud is not mentioned here. But on the skin it becomes less zoo-like and brings warm and sensual depth into the fragrance.
* An intimate close to skin scent what you might smell under a worn out leather jacket on a bare male skin. The jacket seems to keep the history of its wearer. Just a few nuances like mineral notes of oil and gasoline or residues of modern fougère perfumes and woody scents ingrained into leather.
* A very comforting warm and dry woody base.
* A slightly metallic aromatic vibe recognizable from many modern masculine fougère fragrances.

Some facts:

Woodleather® is a new Firmenich captive with an oud scent profile. Also used in “Original Oud” by Mizensir, the fragrance project by Alberto Morillas.

Goldenwood® is another Firmenich captive. As long as it’s under patent protection (as well as Woodleather®), not much information will be revealed.

Nootka cypress (also known as Alaskan Cedarwood) is a conifer growing in the Northwest Rainforest area. Firmenich describes the smell of Cedarwood Alaska essential oil as “sparkling with a fresh and breezy grapefruit crisp due to its Nootkatene and Nootkatone content (grapefruit odorants)”and “less camhoraceous and smoky, but stronger, longer lasting and more linear than the regular Cedarwood oil”.

This is one of those rare scents that is bold without being loud or brash. I would describe this scent as rather muted, you get a leather-like, hydrocarbon and some green aroma all at once.

One of the first images that this great juice brought to mind was the inside of an old pick-up my father owned that held various items such as tools and dirty mechanic's rags. I only have a decant right now but am looking at getting a full bottle though I will say that even though it's an EDP it is a bit on the weak side. Life span on my skin is okay and projection is too so if your skin is the type that soaks it up you might go heavy on application.

Every once in a while I think I catch a whiff of "greenery", maybe the cypress? Most of the time you got a great leather that isn't trying so hard to get noticed.
