I am a big fan of the original Gucci Rush so I thought I would give it's successor a go. Although I don't like it as much as the original, Gucci Rush 2 is a pleasant smelling perfume which I would definitely buy again.
Like its predecessor the product comes in pink square plastic packaging (Gucci Rush 1 is red) which perhaps isn't the most fashionable bottle it could have been put it, but it definitely makes Gucci Rush a distinctive brand - if you see this bottle you immediately know what it is and I am sure that was what Gucci's intent was.
The smell itself is quite strong, you merely need two squirts and these will literally keep you smelling lovely for pretty much the remainder of the day. Gucci Rush 2 has a sweet and fresh smell, not quite as musty as the original but still a little bit woody; in fact perhaps this version is more targeted towards a younger female consumer as I find it has quite a 'young' smell about it. Their website tells you that it has blends of narcissus and palmwood and the scents of roses and oak moss amongst other things.
The scent comes in a variety of sizes in eau de toilette - 30ml, 50ml and 75ml. I usually buy the 50ml as I find its ample amount and lasts me a good 5-6 months as you really do only need a couple of squirts. I don't use it every day however, if you do perhaps you are better off with the 75ml. Depending on where you buy it you would normally pay around £35 for the 50ml, which like I said is what I usually buy. I don't think is very expensive, especially for a top quality name like Gucci. I normally buy my perfume in Duty Free at the airport where I manage to get it for about £30 - OK so not a great saving but I go on holiday quite a lot so its quite easy for me to just pick one up. I find that you get good deals on this and the original in the Perfume Shop a lot of the time, so it's definitely worth checking them out.
For me, I wear this day to day. I don't think its more suited to daytime or evening wear, I think its suitable for any occasion really. I always get complemented whenever I wear this or the original Gucci Rush, and the smell is quite distinctive so people usually know I'm wearing Gucci Rush 1 or 2 anyway!
I love the smell of this perfume - I so slightly prefer Gucci Rush 1 but I will definitely continue to buy this.
I have found Gucci Rush 2 to be a wonderful scent, a perfume which - excuse the cliché - provides a little more attitude. A slightly stronger, woodier scent than I generally wear from day to day, this scent is my favourite on nights out, drinks and days in the city. I find that the scent lasts well, grows fantastically into a more subtle and warmer fragrance over time, and doesn't end up musky at the end of a long day. This is my only Gucci perfume, and to be honest I am not a huge fan of them - save perhaps Gucci Envy - from my Boots tester encounters. However, I feel that Gucci Rush 2 may be designed for a younger audience than the majority of their range, judging from the bright pink plastic packaging, and perhaps this also comes through in the scent. Easy to wear but in my case more of a night time fragrance, good value for money.
This was bought for me as a present by a friend which when I opened I thought was fantastic. I absolutely loved Gucci Rush, so immediately assumed I would be equally impressed with Gucci Rush 2. Wrong again... when it comes to perfume I should have learnt my lesson and never assume. It's not the worst perfume I have smelt but it's certainly not one of the better perfumes I have smelt.
The perfume is in a bright pink bottle. Which is then inside a clear plastic pink cover/ box.
The perfume is in a box/ cover which is about 8cm long, 5cm high and 1cm depth. It's very similar to the original Gucci Rush packaging however is bright pink and clear. The box then has a section which is connected to the lid of the perfume bottle which sprays the perfume out. Gucci Rush 2 is written on the side of the perfume box cover.
The price of the perfume varies again on where you shop. The RRP on a 30ml bottle is £29.00 and for 50ml is £39.00. This was a present so I am not sure how much the bottle of perfume actually cost. Shopping around on the Internet will get you the best deal as with most things I have seen a 50ml bottle of Gucci Rush 2 for £23.00.
The price is pretty reasonable and competitive with similar products on the market or from other perfume brands such as Armani.
The official line on the scent of Gucci Rush 2 is:
"A sensual combination of narcissus, rose, oakmoss and musk that's insidiously inviting and subtly addictive. Luminous and transparent with a green twist, Rush 2 is a vibrant and sexy scent with many facets."
The perfume is quite musky and not as fresh smelling as other perfumes that I like. It is sweet but almost too sweet and sickly. There is something almost unnatural and plasticy about the overall smell of the perfume.
The perfume when it is first sprayed onto skin it has a very strong musky smell, which I find too overpowering. The smell quickly rubs off and this becomes very light almost too light in my opinion and would need another spray after about 2 hours. This perfume doesn't seem to smell right on me after the initial strong musk smell dies down this then smells sweet and sickly with quite a sharp smell too. It's not pleasant and my boyfriend has even commented it smells more like a room spray rather than a perfume!
I don't have particularly sensitive skin but when I wear this perfume after about 30 minutes my neck starts to itch and I get red marks on my neck. This also happens when I wear Gucci Envy Me. I regularly wear Gucci Rush and Gucci II and never have this problem so it's only certain Gucci perfumes.
I'm glad that this was bought for me as a present as it wasn't a perfume I would buy myself. The packaging isn't bad but it is very plastic looking (being made entirely from plastic) and is more suited being kept in a handbag rather than on show on a dressing table. If you like Gucci Rush then don't be tempted to buy this perfume as it is completely different. It's not a perfume I would recommend buying as a present or for yourself.
Gucci Rush 2 has to be one of my favourite fragrances, My brother borught me it for christmas last year and before that I had never used a Gucci fragrance. I absolutey love it, it is so fresh and classy.
Gucci Rush 2 is a sensual combination of narcissus, rose, oakmoss and musk that is inviting and addictive. The bottle probably has room for improvement.
The bottle is rectangle clear hot pink plastic. Not as classy as the fragrance inside, but afterall it is the fragrance that matters. Being Gucci it is also rather pricy, but in this instance you really do get what you pay for. This is the perfect gift if you want to splash out on the lovely ladies in your life, I am surely they would deeply appreciate it. Or if you are a lady and want to splash some of that hard earned cash on yourself, you will not be dissapointed with a bottle of Gucci Rush 2.
This is a brillant fragrance for those who love to party and who love a fragrance to go with the mood.
This is light and even though I have sensitive skin and can't wear a lot of perfumes, this was great. It didn't agitate me at all.
I prefer this to Gucci Rush, as I found that to be quite musty, where as this was a lot fresher. The packaging is really nice for this perfume and when you see it in the shop you're automatically attracted to it.
I would recommend this as a gift for anyone that is confident, bold and who loves a fresher fragrance.
My only problem with this is because of the shape of the bottle you can never get the last of the perfume out, so there is quite a bit wasted in the bottom of the container.
All in all highly recommended, a brilliant purchase!
Gucci created many different products during his life, from clothes to luggage, until his death in 1953, where numerous executives took over production and design of Gucci. Then in the 1990's Tom Ford, took over all this and began to create a more cosmopolitan Gucci for modern society. With the introduction of perfumes and cosmetics to the collection
Gucci Rush 2 was initially launched in 2001 by the powerhouse that is Gucci for the woody style perfume range that Gucci had already established. Gucci Rush 2, has a blend of notes of narcissus, palmwood, freesia, lily of the valley. Contains the scents of rose gardenia, blackcurrant, musk and oak moss.
How Long Does It Last ?
It has a very pleasant but sweet smell, that is very prominent when first applied. After 20minutes or so the smell begins to emulate from your skin with a sugary sweetness, which is unlike its title of a woody perfume. Never the less it is a perfume that stays on your skin all day. With this perfume I am happy to say that one application a day is all it needs.
A bright pink rectangular bottle, which is definitely targeted at a female consumer obviously by being a feminine product. The over slip of the perfume holds the number of the perfume over the bottle which just holds Gucci Rush . It is a very nice looking bottle and reminds me slightly of a CD case as the slip slides on and off the perfume so the bottle isn't accidentally sprayed.
This perfume comes in 3 different amounts; 30ml, 50ml and 75 ml. Each increasing in price as you get more perfume.
30ml varies in price from £16.99 - 26.96
50ml varies around the price of £35
75ml is around £45-50
Despite this is does have a lost lasting ability so is well worth the money you pay for the perfume. Though by scouting round the internet the prices are a little varied and you could get a bargain for a gorgeous smelling perfume.

This was a Christmas present but I had already liked the first Gucci Rush, so I thought I would probably like this! This perfume I have found is perfect for any situation, as a mild perfume for day to day wear if you put small amount on, but for a stronger scent try a little more. It is a stunning scent, and not being a big perfume fan myself I was surprised how much I liked this. The fact that I can get it in Boots and many other high street retailers along with the internet it is a accessible perfume and a great smelling one, with good value for money.
Gucci Rush 2 is for the type of girl who is daring, bold and confident as well as fun. It is mostly suitable for nighttime wear, although you may get away with daytime use for special occasions. The notes include palm wood, gardenia, rose and musk which make the scent heavy and sometimes overpowering but quite alluring and inviting. It is vibrant and quite a deep scent. Not really suitable for younger women, I would say that it is perfect for mid 30s+
Gucci Rush 2 EDT For Her / A sensual combination of narcissus, rose, oakmoss and musk that's insidiously inviting and subtly addictive / Luminous and transparent with a green twist, Rush 2 is a vibrant and sexy scent with many facets.
