Woody musky sexyness!
Gucci Rush for Men is so good that it's one of the few discontinued fragrances that truly deserves a comeback.

Gucci nowadays has almost nothing interesting in their fragrance line for men. Guilty Absolute, that offers a woody-leather experience and the underrated Guilty Cologne are probably the only ones that i can recommend. But back in the late 90's and early 00's, Tom Ford was in charge and put some ideas on the table.

One of the best examples was this fragrance. A woody fragrance composed by Antoine Maisondieu and Daniela Andrier. Two great perfumers who created some great fragrances throughout the years. They joined again later for Bottega Veneta pour homme, another great woody-leather fragrance with pine needles upfront.

This one was launched in the beginning of the new millennium and followed a new genre of woody masculines. The milky nuance is, I believe, popularized by Feu D'Issey in '98 but doomed because it was a feminine release. This time, the milky sandalwood was joined by Cedar and Cypress with a musky finale.

Seems and feels simple, and it really is, but in a beautiful and comforting way. A second skin experience. There's definitely Iso E Super here, supporting the woods and along with the musk, helping the increase of longevity. Very dry and fresh woody fragrance with milky nuances.

The opening has light green cypress leafs and echos of Encre Noire. Both have cypress and iso E super so the comparison is logical, but this is more milky, creamy and more musky. Also more rounded and second skin-like. They just have a similar woody-new wave style.

After the opening, it mellows a bit, tuning down the cypress and cedar note and increasing the musk one. It turns into a beautiful sensual milky musk with a masculine (and new at the time) woody trail. It doesn't last long (3-5h usually) and doesn't project great, but it acts like a sexy skin scent and i like that.

It's something that i can see in the niche world easily, cause it's very conceptual and avant-garde at the time. One fragrance that has some similarities is Azzaro Visit but that one is more sweet and it lacks the beautiful musk note. And it doesn't have the green cypress. It's more a alternative on a budget.

And speaking about the price, this is ultra expensive nowadays due to its discontinuation. So I can't recommend you for those prices. But if you find this under 90€/100ml I would pick it up. It's good, unique, sexy, avant-garde and it comes in a beautiful retro plastic and metallic bottle that seems like it came from the 80's.

Overall, a beautiful woody scent that i will miss when I finish my bottle. Luckily, I still have +90ml of juice to enjoy!

Back to the Future
If they asked me that the smell could have the future, this fragrance would come to mind. It seems an essence that has come to us with the capsule of time, it seems to have come out of the Scream video by Michael and Janet Jackson, starting from the bottle, a parallelepiped made of plastic and white metal, which recalls so much the purity, and the modern minimalism of the perfume, a bottle that looks like it looks like the packaging of the first iPods, born a few years later. After the 2000s, Gucci churned out three important masterpieces, Gucci pour homme, Gucci Envy and Gucci Rush for Man, the latter notch above his siblings.
It opens with very aromatic and sophisticated woods, almost soft and creamy, however creamy a wood could be, Mysore sandalwood, Bois d'Okoumé and juniper blend with an incense base, white musks, patchouli and lavender that makes the fragrance slightly powdery, clean, modern and slightly lactaginous. A woody-spicy, all the ingredients are clear, limpid, bleached, the perfume plays on the white color, on soft geometries, on neutrality, with a futuristic concept, very linear, aseptic but at the same time relaxing, comforting, beautiful, young, suitable for any occasion, hyper-versatile, in any context, I can't find a time of year where to place it, but I would avoid the hot months.
In the perfume there is also the touch of Tom Ford and you can see (and hear) and coincidentally many indelible scents of past years have his signature. For just this reason, every perfume collector should have this piece of history, or rather, this fragment of the future.

A lot of good wood in a white plastic case
I say yes to you:

Yes to your strong cypress start.
Yes to your milky-creamy frankincense wood heart.
Yes to your light musk sandalwood base.

You're a wood scent like it has to be.
Fresh, not disturbing sandalwood with musk, immediately to fall in love with.
Discreetly spicy, not exaggerated.

You were ahead of your time.
Modern, looking to the future.

You're better than other wood scents, more pleasant, more balanced.
You're just Gucci Rush for Men
Extraordinary, unique, good.

Bright and smoothly expressed Iso E Super formula. I get a lot of frankincense texture.
