Hello white flowers!
Hello white flowers! Ellenisia opens with jasmine and sweet tuberose, followed by rose. Maybe a hint of orange, but just a hint. A wonderful mix of flowers with a sweet, honeyed facet. Nice, bold and full of life. It gives you a joyful mood. It feels like you are in a garden full of white flowers where their fragrances intertwine and create a divine odour. An odour of joy, a life full of happiness.
The base has a bitterness probably due to the plum, but is still very nice and sweet.
If you are into florals, especially white florals, this one is a try. It has good projection and longevity.

About iris
Right from the beginning you can feel the iris. It is a nice, sweet, creamy iris. I love iris with all its facets.
The centre of the fragrance is about iris wrapped in sweet jasmine and sprinkled with spices.
The base brings a leathery touch to the iris as if you have crushed an iris flower in a leathery glove. The leather smell from the glove remains in the iris flower and the result is a magnificent odour: a leathery iris.
The base is creamy, sweet and powdery. The longevity is good. For me this is a scent close to the skin.
If you like iris note in perfume you should try Iris Prima.

A good floral
Beside Rush, I am not an owner of a Gucci perfume. None of them suits me. I am sorry I had no chance to smell Envy because I heard it was a beautiful creation.
Now, let’s talk about Bloom. Tuberose is a nice flower but it can be very heavy. 2017 seems to be a tuberose year: Twilly, Gabrielle and now Gucci Bloom. I bet that by the end of the year there will be more perfumes that have tuberose as a starting point.
The fragrance opens with a sweet tuberose. The sweetness comes from honeysuckle, a flower from heaven with a gorgeous smell. So, I get a sweet, wonderful tuberose because it is the diva in this composition.
The perfume is linear with a tuberose which dominates the other notes. Sweet but not sickly, sharp but not annoying, loud but not disturbing. A classic composition made for all those who love white flowers.
The dry-down is a little powdery and balsamic maybe due to orris root, but still full of tuberose.
Projection and longevity are very good.
Gucci Bloom is a very nice fragrance where the tuberose is very well represented. It is different from others perfumes and bold in its own way. A good floral for the floral lovers.

Pleasant and elegant
The perfume opens with fresh, sweet citrus, accompanied by sweet spices. It is a fresh, sharp smell. It takes your breath away in a pleasant way.
In the middle of the composition there is violet, a sweet one, full of spices. It is a spicy fragrance. St this point I get a soapy smell. The smell is fresh and clean and it gives a sort of purity to the perfume. It is a rich and elegant fragrance, full of spirit and personality.
The base is sweeter but it still has a soapy hint.
This is a great fragrance for work. It can’t disturb anyone. Is nice, clean, pleasant and elegant. You can’t go wrong with it. Everyone should have in its wardrobe this kind of perfume.

green-minty rose
On my skin the perfume opens with minty rose. I haven’t seen mint listed so I smelled again and again. It’s minty rose on my skin. After a while, that green minty odour almost disappears, living behind a fresh green trace. It is now when the smoky resins feel their presence. It is a combination of sweet and green, with some rose. I was looking for lily-of-the-valley because it is one of my favourite note, but I could not smell it.
In the base I get a green leathery smell mixed with smoke and a lot of patchouli. At this point it reminded me of Coromandel by Chanel. It is almost the same sweet patchouli. This is the feeling with which the perfume ends: sweet patchouli. Good sillage!
The perfume deserves a try if you like green-minty rose finished with patchouli.
