My Experience with Gucci Bamboo EDP

When I got to know about the Gucci Bamboo EDP, I was dying to give it a go. Mostly because I have a bamboo bag from the collection so I wanted this as well in my collection. I know I have ridiculous logics for things but I can’t help it sometimes. hihi

Anyhoo, let’s start with the packaging first. It’s a diamond shade glass bottle with soft pink perfume and the signature ‘Gucci Bamboo’ cap.

The fragrance is floral cum citrusy. I am a sucker for citrusy fresh fragrances and I abbsoooolutely love this one. It also has light hints of sandalwood but very light.. I want to keep smelling myself whenever I wear it. ๐Ÿ˜› I think after Chanel Chance if there is any perfume that has driven me so crazy, it is Gucci Bamboo. It is more like a day perfume- fresh, clean, feminine and pleasing. I actually love everything about this perfume

EXCEPT

  • Absolutely ridiculous staying power. 1 hour and it leaves no trace of perfume behind. Honestly for a perfume that I like so much, I would want it to stay for long.
  • As much as I love the fragrance I found that it is not very special as well. It is something I have sniffed before…I have used before or it could even be something that you might find in lesser known perfumes as well. I was expecting it to hit me out of ball park. I love it, no questions asked. But this is Gucci and I would expect something special. Not this one.

Still, despite the very distinctive cons, this is one perfume I would ALWAYS repurchase mostly because I love this fragrance so very much. It just hits all right notes for my finicky nose. ๐Ÿ˜€

I was checking out this perfume last night, and here is the review! ๐Ÿ˜€ I thought it was going to be an awesome perfume since I loooove fragrances that have base notes of sandalwood. Great you loved, sad the staying power is so low for the price and brand name. Also, just checked out your bamboo bag, and fell in love with it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Since I can’t sniff it, I can embrace the packaging which looks smashing.
