Strong as a berry
Well, I like the unsweet chypre fruit pretty much. The blackberry initially sets the tone, shining in full splendour without being sweet at all. I like it quite well, because I basically like berry notes, but many scents with berry notes are too sweet for me.
Guilty Absolute does it differently.
To be honest, I can hardly see the rose. When it is there, it is really only discreet and supporting the blackberry, not dominant.
I didn't expect the drydown at first: first it becomes woody, tart, very mature. "Monarde" as a note doesn't mean anything to me, so I can't make it out. Sometimes I have something "mossy" in my nose when sniffing, almost like oak moss. Smells fine, I got used to it quickly. Patchouli and amber don't stand out so much, but rather patchouli.
Interesting unsweet, mature, bitter, "cold" scent, which I can well imagine in autumn.
Definitely worth a test and a nice change to otherwise warm, sweet smells.
I don't think Guilty Absolute is like Lalique Amethyst at all.
The amethyst stays very flat on my skin, smells all the time only of sour berries and really does not develop at all.
I find the Gucci much more successful and interesting.
