Gucci Bamboo Eau De Parfum / review

Today I want to share with you a fragrance that I’ve really been enjoying, the new Gucci Bamboo*. I love Gucci fragrances and this one does not disappoint. It comes in this beautiful diamond shaped bottle with a silver cap shaped like a bamboo. It’s a classy design, art deco style which I love.

The perfume itself is soft and intense at once – deep Sandalwood, Tahitian Vanilla and grey Amber notes strike a complementary contrast with soft, exotic floral notes of Lily, Orange Blossom and delicate Ylang Ylang. A fragrance that reflects femininity and designed to represent a women’s confidence, strength and essence of her character.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATop notes: Italian Bergamot, Orange Blossom
Heart notes: Casablanca Lily, Ylang Ylang
Base notes: Deep Sandalwood, heady Tahitian Vanilla and unique grey Amber accords.

I find this fragrance perfect for this time of year, it’s slightly floral but more of an woody scent. It’s an intense and luxury perfume, absolutely perfect for Autumn/Winter. I like to wear it if I’m going out for dinner or on a special date, but it’s not too overpowering so you could wear it during the day or for any occasion really. Such a lovely woody warm notes and that musky scent, I’m not that good at describing smells but you need to try a tester of this, I’m pretty sure you will like it.


Available to purchase at Boots I also wanted to mention that you can now add a personal message, name or initials on a perfume bottle or any gift at Boots (£3 only), which is such a fabulous service with Christmas coming up. It just makes any gift that bit more special and unique. I recently attended their Christmas Press day and they very kindly gifted me this perfume with my name on it, which is a super sweet touch 🙂

    My favorite perfume is Very Sexy from Victoria’s Secret. I’m extremely sensitive and selective with my fragrances (you won’t find me with a million bottles of body spray from bath and body works lol)
    It’s one of the only scents that works perfectly with my body chemistry and lingers all day.
    I’ll have to give this perfume a sniff the next time I’m in Macy’s!
