Gucci Envy Eau de Toilette
Advantages: really feminine, evaporates very slowly
Disadvantages: bit strong flower smell in the beginning
In 1997 Gucci brought out the Envy perfume. Despite the fact that it is a fragrance that is already been a while on the market, this fragrance is still popular. According to the perfumer Maurice Roucel this perfume is like a enchanting journey trough a flied of flowers. And it is a true addiction. Gucci Envy says it's a refreshing, floral fragrance, which is not too heavy and very suitable for spring, summer and daytime wear. It is a very feminine fragrance, which use is made of a blend of extracts including hyacinth, magnolia, lily of the valley, jasmine, violet, iris and musk. The top notes consists of the scents of hyacinth, magnolia, the heart of lily of the valley, jasmine, violets and from the extracts of the iris and musk
Gucci Envy Eau de Toilette for women comes in an elongated simple clear glass vial, which was designed by Tom Ford. It is beautiful because of its simplicity. It is as I said earlier an elongated transparent glass vial, which only the front has gold letters with Gucci Envy. The vial is closed with a silver spray showing again a silver square cap. At the bottom of the bottle is a label which states that the bottle contains an Eau de Parfum and the contents of the vial. When you buy the bottle it's packed in a transparent elongated transparent hard plastic case.
The eau de toilette fragrance smells really feminine, especially in the beginning, the flowers smell really prevailed. When the perfume has settled the scent of musk comes more forward.
My opinion though I am more a fan of oriental fragrances, I find this a delicious scent on warmer days. It is a slightly sweet and feminine eau de toilette. When I used it for the first time I thought it was too flowery, but after fifteen minutes came the scent of musk more to his right and I did appreciate the smell. This perfume evaporates very slowly you will smell it all day long. It is a soft, non-intrusive and certainly not too heavy scent. It's just subtly present. I think it's definitely a scent that also can be worn by young people. For myself, I find it more of a scent for daytime. Also very suitable for work wear. The packaging is simple and chic. It is certainly worth a try this perfume.
