Advantages: Lovely floral scent, great lasting power
Last year I received a 50 ml bottle of Gucci Envy Me eau de toilette from my sister in law. I like to try a lot of perfumes but I had never experienced this one before.
=== Bottle ===
It comes in a tall rectangular clear bottle with a pattern of pink squares all over it. The lid is a white square with the perfume name written on it. The bottle looks fairly attractive although it is not the most intricate or unusual design out there. I think the pink and white colours do fit the perfume as it is floral and girly. It is easy to see how much is left in the bottle.
=== Scent ===
I normally don't copy and paste any product descriptions, but I think the way Gucci has described this scent is very accurate:
Envy Me is "Joyful, vivacious and feminine, Gucci Envy Me has a vibrant floral heart with a sensual blend of lychee, pink peony, water jasmine, pomegranate and pink musk. This is the signature of a women who, at heart, is forever a Gucci girl."
It definitely does have a vibrant floral heart. The musk is detectable but not overpowering and I don't find that it is a powdery scent. The pomegranate gives it a bit more lightness and fruitiness. Despite that, for an eau de toilette it is certainly on the heavier side. When I first got it I assumed it was eau de parfum rather than eau de toilette because of the strength and lasting power. I was actually surprised when I noticed one day on the bottom of the bottle that it was an eau de toilette! For me this is a big plus, as it is a shame when a scent disappears within an hour or two and that is why I normally prefer to buy eau de parfum concentration when possible.
It is a feminine, girly scent and I could imagine it appealing to teens and older women alike. I think it is more of a day time scent as it seems sweet and innocent to me. Although I have said it is fairly strong, it is not the kind of scent which would offend anyone and not noxious and headachey at all, so I think it would always be appropriate to wear, whether for work or in a casual situation.
At Boots it costs £49 for 50 ml or £37 for 30 ml. This is more expensive than some Eau de Toilettes, but fairly in line with what I would expect to pay for an Eau de Parfum. As it has the lasting power of an Eau de Parfum anyway, I think this price is fair. It is a lovely scent.
Summary: Gorgeous scent
