      Beautiful

      Gucci rush original in the red bottle (not to be mistaken with Gucci rush 2 in the pink bottle) is absolutely gorgeous. I always get complimented on my perfume when ever I wear it and people are always asking what it is. The price is slightly steeper than I would like to pay so when I see it on offer I always stock up. Around Christmas time you will usually find the 30ml bottles for abound £15 in boots or Superdrug etc so I buy 3 or 4. The smell is fruity and lasts all night long (no need to take it out and top up) The quirky bottle is also attractive with its square shape and red plastic materials. It can be hard to get hold of though these days and most places stock the Gucci rush 2 but I don't like the smell of that one, it's totally different.

        Glorious woody floral fragrance

        Gucci Rush is my all time favourite fragrance and the one I wear most often. I think I have been wearing this since it was first launched in 1999 and I don't think I will ever tire of wearing it.

        The Packaging
        I am not mad keen on the packaging to be honest. It comes in a bright pink opaque rectangular plastic container that looks like a small cassette case, so not your typical packaging. Not the most stylish and the colour in particular makes it look a bit cheap and tacky. It isn't the easiest to spray and the other negative is that you can't see how much you have left in the container.

        The Fragrance
        I have tried to research the exact ingredients, but they seem to vary from website to website , but having done that I have discovered that it contains some of my favourite flowers so I now know why I love it so much.
        It contains peony,freesia ,bergamot ,carnation, gardenia, jasmine, vetiver, violet, sandalwood, rose and vanilla.

        My impression of the fragrance is that it is a woody floral of medium intensity as I would not describe it as light but I personally don't find it too heavy.

        My favourite flowers are peony, freesia, carnation and roses and I have all bar the freesia in my garden. I have tried but failed miserably to grow freesia.
        What I love about all of them is their scent, particularly on one of those rare hot days at dusk when the air is full of their fragrance and whilst I enjoy the warmth of the evening the scents keep drifting over me.
        For me that is what Gucci have achieved with this EDT as it reminds me of the rush - albeit a gentle one I get when a gorgeous combination of peony carnation and rose drifts past me at the end of a rare sunny day. A also rare event I know when the air is still and warm but an experience so nice it encourages you to stroll over to the flowers to breathe in more of the fragrance. It also reminds me of the flowers I used to grow from seeds when I was a child, called night scented stock that came into it's own early evening when the scent was quite intense.
        Looking at the ingredients I also see vetiver and sandalwood which always seem to feature in fragrances I am drawn to and I think they add the woodiness to the mix.

        I use this day and evening and it is one if the few that people ask me what I am wearing, so I think I must have hit on one that works with my body chemistry.
        Apart from walking the dogs I always wear perfume and this is the one I use most often.
        It does last a while after spraying and I think it smells really good when you first spray and I personally don't think it changes too much as it develops. Perhaps my nose has gone as I wear it so often.

        I don't think I am very adventurous when it comes to trying new perfumes as I always find when testing new ones, those I hate most linger for hours and I end up with a headache , so I stick with what I know and I am extremely happy with this fragrance.

        Gucci did several versions of this which are all very similar but sadly they are hard to come by. They included Summer and a Rush 2, so I am very concerned that they will stop making this as I think I will cry if they do.

        5 stars from me and no hesitation in recommending. The container is the only negative and I really don't know what Gucci were thinking when they came up with this. But don't let that put you off as like most things it is what is on the inside that counts.

        Price and Availability
        Available from Boots and most department stores
        30ml is £40 and 50ml £53 at Boots .
        The prices vary and I usually buy when there is a 10% offer on from a department store or Boots as I am a bit wary about buying online as I always wonder of they are cheaper because they are close to the end of their shelf life.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          you should really rush to buy it!

          Gucci is a well known Italian fashion brand which branched out a large perfume range some years ago - and the perfume I will be reviewing today is the only Gucci scent I have tried to date - Gucci Rush.

          The first time I ever experianced Gucci Rush was during a holiday to Turkey in 2006 where I came across a stall selling 3 perfumes for just £10 - looking at the packaging and testing the perfume myself you couldn't actually tell the difference to the real thing apart from the scent lasted just a couple of hours as opposed to a full day for the real thing... In my mind it was £10 well spent and they made great perfumes for work! When I finished this cheap bottle I bought the real thing back home and as previously mentioned the scent did last a lot longer on the real thing.

          The design is really what initially attracted to the perfume as it is completely different to the majority of glass bottles and different coloured liquids you see in products normally. To some it may look cheap but to me its very unique like the scent... The "bottle" is actually a red coloured rectangular box which comes packaged in a matching red cardboard sleeve for protection. The material for the perfume container is a hard durable plastic. There isn't actually a normal spray nozzle on this like you normally see on perfumes - its actually built into the side of the box that you have to press in and the spray dispenses at the opposite side. The perfume brand and type - Gucci Rush - is printed down one of the sides in silver and orange font which stands out against the red packaging.

          The liquid to me comes out as clear and the bottle is in no way transparent so you cannot see the contents.

          On to the scent of the perfume, to me its addictive and like no other. Its very sexy, alluring and memorable and it just reminds me of that particular holiday to Turkey - an exotic scent! What I picked up was a mixture between wood and vanilla scents... quite sweet... For those interested in the notes, Gucci lists the following :

          Top Note : The top of the fragrance smolders with an enticing blend of bergamot, peony and gardenia

          The Heart : Violet, vanilla and jasmine fuse beautifully to form the heart's refreshing floral bouquet

          Base Notes : Warm, aromatic and softly spicy, the base of the fragrance emerges with earthy notes of patchouli

          To me the above description sounds very floral but the perfume is everything but.

          In my opinion this perfume would be a great gift for anyone - from teenagers to older women. I bought this perfume for my mum once who is 50+ and she can be a bit picky with perfume and even she loved it. However you should expect to pay for it and I haven't seen it for cheap (apart from my Turkish holiday!). I only literally have a couple of issues with this perfume - with any perfume bottle that is not transparent it is hard to see when you are running low... you have to rely on your ears and shake the bottle around to get an idea. Also the spray nozzle that you press in to disperse tends to stick.

          At the time of writing this review Gucci Rush can be picked up in the following sizes and prices at the Perfume Shop :

          Gucci Rush EDT 30ml - £36.50

          Gucci Rush EDT 50ml - £48.50

          Gucci Rush EDT 75ml - £64.50

          ... But you can tend to get it a bit cheaper if you keep your eyes peeled in shops and other websites!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          An absolute must have!

          I love Gucci Rush, My best friend introduced me to this fragrance about six years ago and now I insist on having it in my collection at all times!

          The Product:
          Gucci Rush comes in a bright Red box with the spray based at the top in the middle. It is very easy to spray on and as the packaging is thick plastic you do not have to keep it in the cardboard box away from sunlight.

          The smell is definitely designed for night; it is not a refreshing day time smell if that makes sense. The smell is floral with a hint of spice, it is a little woody. You do not need to use too much of this as it can become way to over powering. I used to use three sprays maximum and that would last all night. As the advert above tells me it has a sharp, oriental, woody flavour which I would definitely agree with.

          The cost of Gucci rush is not too expensive I have brought three bottle in my time. I always buy the 50ml bottle as you do not need to use too much they last ages and only cost 315 more. I paid £45 for my bottle but prices vary over the internet so shop around for a deal. I do not believe this is expensive as I have more expensive perfumes and cheaper perfumes so I would say it is middle of the range in price

          Positives:
          This fragrance is a perfume that lasts on the skin, it doesn't fade over the night and is not overpowering. Great for a night out clubbing or a first date! The packaging is clever and it lasts ages as you need to use so little.

          Summary:
          I would definately recommend Gucci Rush to all my girlie friends! It is perfect for a night out! I have given it five stars as I can not find fault with this fragrance.

            a perfume for all women to try

            I Like to try and purchase a new bottle of perfume every time that I go to the airport as I soon get bored of a fragrance, so to make sure that I don't I like to have a wide variety so that I can wear a different one each day. I have perfumes that are more expensive and that I would use for special occasions as opposed to some of the more reasonably valued fragrances that I use daily for work.

            When I went on my last holiday I purchased Gucci Rush Eau De Toilette as it was on special offer, I had heard of the fragrance before, but had never really been a fan of many of the Gucci fragrances. I am now gutted that it had taken me so long to find this perfume. This great fragrance has a floral fragrance with a hint of spice which is not too strong, unlike some fragrances I have tested.

            It is quite a modern fragrance that is also not too heavy, it is a scent that lasts but does not overpower. This is a fragrance that is not one of the most expensive ones that I own but it is not the cheapest either, I use Gucci Rush for my nights out.

            But be careful when you apply Gucci Rush you only need to apply a small quantity to your wrists and neck, otherwise it can become overpowering which is not pleasant.

            Gucci Rush stands out as it is in a bright red box and bottle, they have carried the same bottle style through the other Gucci Rush ranges they have just put them in different colours so that they brands is recognizable.

            I am not a fragrance expert so I had so search around online so that I give you the exact flavours that appear in Gucci Rush. There are top notes of bergamot, peony and freesia. With middle notes of violet, jasmine and carnation and the base notes are orris sandalwood and vetiver.

            If you want to purchase this perfume look around online as there are some great prices and special offers available, I have looked around and this perfume retails around the £30 mark for 30ml, but for £10 -£15 more you can also purchase a 50ml, which is better value for money in the long term.

            Overall this is a perfume that will be appreciated by women of all ages as it is not too sweet and as the day progresses and the perfume wears off the smell fades, but you still smell great and are aware of the fragrance still lingering on your skin. I cannot wait till my next holiday where I will be purchasing Gucci Rush 2, I only hope it is as good as the original.

              My favourite fragrance, one to be tried and loved by all :)

              Gucci Rush Eau de Toilette for women is without a doubt my favourite perfume.

              Launched over ten years ago this oriental, woody fragrance has top notes of bergamot, peony, freesia, violet, jasmine and carnation. The base notes of this fragrance are orris sandalwood and vetiver.

              I was first bought this perfume as a present five or six years ago and must be honest think this is by far the most beautiful smelling fragrance with a long lasting smell. The fragrance is very floral without making you smell like your Grandma. It is a deep and rich fragrance which keeps me running back for more as soon as the last few drops are left. This perfume is definitely one men notice more than women I often get more compliments from men on a night out (even when I am with my partner).

              I have tried many other perfumes since first trying Gucci Rush and I really think no other perfume comes close. Every day I wear this perfume at least one person always asks me what perfume it is and how lovely it smells. I can smell the fragrance throughout the day and my boyfriend can always smell it very strongly at the end of the day.

              At nearly £60 for a 75ml bottle this perfume is not the cheapest of designer fragrances but in my opinion worth every penny. The box this fragrance comes in is unique and different. A deep red box with the button in the middle at the top.

              This certainly is my favourite fragrance, it is long lasting, beautiful smelling and receives many compliments from all that smell it.

              Fab funky design, delicious fruity fragrance.

              I first came across this perfume on the recommendation of a friend, I loved the fruity summery fragrance and went out and bought myself a bottle.

              I bought myself a bottle from Boots - 30ml for £29.99 which I believe is a reasonable price for a decent perfume. The 'bottle' is a red plastic oblong in shape with a central button on the top with Gucci rush inscribed down one side which comes in a red sleeve type thing. I found the design very handy and light to carry around in my handbag because of the fact that it is made of plastic rather than glass.

              The scent itself to me smells very light, fruity and summery, to be more precise after doing a bit of reasearch its top notes include gardenia with base note of patchouli and the heart based around vanilla, jasmine and peach. only two or 3 squirts are necessary and the fragrance lingers for many hours. My partner loves the smell of it luckily as I'm not sure I would change it if he didnt!!

              All in all i would definitely recommend this produce both due to the scent itself and also its longevity.

              Thanks for taking the time to read ;-)

              Worth a chance!!

              I was given this last year by my OH for valentines day.
              I remember being at my aunties 4 or 5 years ago and she smelt so good, I went into her bathroom and sprayed her perfumes until I found that smell, there it was, that lovely bright red bottle, well more of a box. ( I did have some trouble figuring out how to use it but I was younger and blonde back then! )

              After my OH got me this I was so excited!
              He bought me this from the perfume shop for 29.99 for 30ml, this also came with a Gucci Rush body lotion which I still have.
              I remember this coming in a red box with a sleeve which you pulled of and then inside another box was the perfume and body lotion, this made a great gift.

              The bottle of the perfume is different to a lot of others, it is a rectangle shape and to use you simply push down the 'button' ( if I could call it that. ) on the top of the bottle.
              On the side of this bottle is the perfumes name 'GUCCI rush' in silver ( I think! ) and a light orange colour.

              The bottle feels so light which is great, it must be the way the bottle is made, because of this you can carry it around in your handbag and it won't weigh down your bag and feel like your carrying a brick! ( which I have experience before with other perfumes. )

              The fragrance is very 'new' and 'modern' and to me has a fruity smell.
              It smells gorgeous on and when I wore it I did receive lots of compliments ( shameless boast. )
              I'm not sure what kind of notes this contains so I got this of The Perfume Shop website incase you would like to know.

              Heart notes:
              Jasmine, Coriander, Damask Rose

              Top notes:
              Gardenia, Peach, Freesia

              Base notes:
              Patchouli, Vanilla, Vetiver


              When I had this perfume on it didn't have to be resprayed every few hours as it has a good staying power, I found 2 or 3 sprays would do me for the whole day.

              Its a very sensual, playful fragrance and I think it would suit most age ranges.

              This perfume ( 30ml ) lasted me 2 months but I did wear it everyday so I guess that is a reasonable amount of time.

              For some reason the smell of this makes me think of a very classy, elegant and sexy woman ( and I am not one of those so I have no idea why this makes me think of them! I guess it is just like when you see a briefcase you think of a business man. )

              Overall I would say at least give this a chance, go and smell it because it's a gorgeous addictive fragrance.
              I want money so I can get another one!

                Gucci Rush
                ========

                After I used to always pinch a spray of this of my friends perfume when we were out, my boyfriend decided to buy me some for valentines day. Unlike most perfumes where the value of it decreases, even more so when the second one of it comes out, this perfume has actually increased in price. It was released in 1999 so after 12 years it still holds it expense so there must be something very good about it.

                The Packaging
                ===========

                The perfume comes in a red box, wrapped in cellophane. When you take the cellophane off, then you have a red cardboard box, displaying the perfume details on. Then you have a gap at either side of the perfume to slide the plain red plastic box of perfume out. The box is a normal rectangle shape, and has the squirter at the front. This is an easy button to push down, and just a gentle push will squirt out some perfume, I myself usually only a couple of squirts and I find this enough.

                The scent
                -------------

                These are taken from the perfume shop site.

                Heart notes
                ===========

                Jasmine, Coriander, Damask Rose

                Top notes
                =========

                Gardenia, Peach, Freesia

                Base notes
                =========

                Patchouli, Vanilla, Vetiver

                Scent
                =====

                Fruity

                Feel
                ====

                Irresistible, Sensual, Spontaneous

                I do agree on the scent of this that it quite a fruity smell, it seems really strong when you first squirt the perfume, and many a times it has made me sneeze like mad. So I would not use too much as once of this. Once the perfume has settled down though its a really nice fruity smell, and is pretty strong, and can be somewhat overpowering, but this is how I like my perfume, I like others to be able to smell how nice it is also.
                Does it last

                Ok now I am not one for squirting perfume just for the sake of it, so I do only wear this when I am going out to the pub, I usually put this on at around 7pm, and I can still smell it on me the next morning at 10am, although the smell is not as strong it is still noticable, so yes it lasts ages and you have no need to reapply, so a few squirts lasts all night.

                Price
                ======

                My boyfriend paid £48 for a 50ml bottle of this, so it is pretty expensive, but I am sure you can find it cheaper if you shop around. I still would say it is worth the money though as it lasts long and the smell is beautiful.

                My overall opinion
                =============

                Well even before I had this bought I was in love with it, I used to always love the smell of my friend who wore it, and I am glad I got some bought. I am a bit tight and won't spend too much on myself, I prefer to let the kids spend it loll.

                I would recommend this perfume to anyone. I really have never smelt a perfume as nice as this before, and I assume that is why its so expensive. As to whether I would buy it again. I am not sure I will have to talk my boyfriend into buying me a bottle again when I start to run low. If not for the price my shelf would be full of this stuff. I get comments now all the time about how nice I smell, not that I smelt bad before, but most perfumes I have found do not stand out as much as this one does.

                  lovely perfume that is enjoyable to wear

                  I first started using Gucci Rush when I received a gift set. It had 10 sample perfumes in it, from which you chose which one you liked best and then used the voucher enclosed to go and get your chosen perfume (it's sort of like a gift card where the person who gave it to you has already paid for the gift but you get the choice of which perfume you want out of 10 so that the gift giver isn't struggling to guess which fragrance you might like!)

                  Gucci Rush was my favourite out of all the 10 samples so obviously this was the one I chose to get the full sized bottle of.

                  Although the bottle itself is just red, it's interesting because it rectangular which is not a common shape for perfume bottles so it defiantly stands out on shelves as being a bit different.

                  Gucci Rush was my favourite of the fragrances because it has quite a different aroma to most other perfumes. It has a woody sort of smell which reminds me the outdoors particularly forests. This might seem like an odd way to describe a perfume but it is an innocent smell which I think is actually quite comforting and homely. It definitely makes to wearer fell warm and is actually enjoyable to wear. Again this may sound like an odd thing to say about perfume but it is an unthreatening, subtle perfume that I think actually gives you confidence when you wear it because it is so homely and relaxing.

                  I wear Gucci Rush mainly in the day but occasionally in the evening as well if I am going out for a nice meal or something along those lines.

                  It is definitely different to any other perfumes I have ever used but this is a good thing because it means you have more unique fragrance to wear and enjoy.

                  It has fast become a favourite perfume for me and I would definately recommend buying it

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    .

                    I do like Gucci perfumes and probably my favourite one is Gucci Envy. I tried this one only this year, as i've got so many Perfumes out there that I want to try, but this takes time to get the money together for it all. I'm lucky that I tend to get so many for Presents as people know I like Perfume, so it makes it quite easy to buy for me I would say.

                    The bottle for this is alright. To look at it I would say it looks hard to use, but it's not that hard really. It's like the Dooyoo picture so it's a red rectangular shaped bottle and the squirt bit comes from the middle of it. The box is a nice enough red colour as well. This isn't a glass bottle but instead a Plastic one. Makes it seem a bit cheap, but it's colourful and anyway it's what's inside that matters anyway. I suppose that the bottle looks a bit plain as the writing is up the side and nothing else going on on the bottle.

                    So how does this smell? It's nice enough. This Perfume has been out for years so must be doing something right. This is a nice enough mixture of scents but I would say it is mostly floral scents in here. The notes are Damask Rose, Vanilla, Jasmine, Coriander, Peach, Freesia, Patchouli and Vetiver. Not sure what some of these are, but they all go together nice. It does smell pretty strong when this is first applied but the usual when this dries and warms to the skin then it is a lot nicer smelling. I would say it is the Peach and patchouli that you smell first of all from this, but later in the day when it all had faded a bit more then I think the Freesia and Vanilla came out that bit more.

                    I got this in a 50ml bottle and paid £21 for it online. Not sure if it comes in larger bottles or any better prices, but due to the brand name I thought this price was pretty average.

                    Although this is a nice scent, it just isn't for me. Too Floral and a slight powdery scent and there is so many more nicer Perfumes out there. I still have a little bit of this left and have had the Bottle for quite a while. I will use it up, but wouldn't personally buy it again.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    A strong, long-lasting fragrance from Gucci, spicy and sweet.

                    Gucci Rush is just one of the perfumes I've amassed over the years, I think I was bought it as a Christmas present several years ago. I remember being initially surprised at how the perfume actually looked, as it wasn't the high class designer bottle you would expect from a brand like Gucci.

                    ~~Bottle~~
                    The bottle itself is very bright, coming in a red plastic casing that looks a little like a translucent lego block. It's very modern looking I suppose, and once I was used to the fact it wasn't what I was expecting, I took it for what it was, an unusual and innovative design. It doesn't look expensive though, which some people might find to be a downside, particularly given it isn't cheap.

                    ~~Price~~
                    I didn't have to pay for my 30ml bottle, as obviously it was a gift, but if you shop around, you should be able to find yourself a bargain, particularly online. 30ml bottles are generally around £15, with 50ml bottles costing just over £20, and 75ml bottles costing just under £30.

                    ~~Scent~~
                    Gucci Rush is a very modern smelling scent, and I remember thinking it was quite unusual when I first
                    smelled it. For starters, it's a very sensual scent, very sexy and seductive. When first sprayed the scent is very sweet and has some exotic florals mixed into it that give it a inticing aroma. Jasmine, vanilla and patchoulie all make their way to my nose and give this fragrance an aroma that may be too sweet for some. Personally, I like the sweetness to Gucci Rush.

                    There is an underlying spiciness to the scent, and woodiness particularly towards the middle and end of the fragrance that is very appealing (particularly to men it seems!) There is also a muskiness towards the end of the scent that is very seductive.

                    This is basically a fragrance that's not for wallflowers, it's bold, fierce, sexy and very noticeable so if you want to blend into the crowd, and not be noticed by men, for god's skae don't wear Gucci Rush! It's like dousing yourself in sweet, spicy pheromones!

                    ~~Staying Power~~
                    In terms of staying power, this is a powerful fragrance that lasts on my skin for virtually the whole day. It's very strong, almost overpowering if you put too much on, so you only need one or two squirts at most. Some perfumes barely last a couple of hours on my skin, but this is one of the longest lasting fragrances I've ever used.

                    I think this scent could be used throughout the day (if used VERY sparingly) but personally I think
                    it's more of an evening scent, as it's strong enough for night time use.

                    ~~Overall~~
                    I really like this perfume overall, although I have to use it in moderation obviously particular for daytime use, as it's so unique and intense throughout the day. On evenings out though, it's a great scent and I've received lots of compliments on my fragrance whilst wearing Gucci Rush.

                    Great day scent for those who like something not too girly!

                    Gucci Rush comes in a red, plastic box with Gucci rush written down the side in orange. Certainly original packaging but not special enough to make me want to purchase it for the bottle alone (like JPG Fragile for example). The perfume is dispensed by depressing a square area on the top of the box.

                    I'm not a girl who likes flowery, girly, 'pink' perfumes and whilst there is a fruity, almost floral scent to this perfume it's certainly not girly. I'd describe it as quite feisty and individual, lots of musky undertones making it a slightly heavier scent. It's in no way overpowering however making it ideal for wearing both during the day and the evening unlike a lot of other heavier perfumes that I've tried. I'd never had anyone ask me what perfume I was wearing until I started wearing this; it seems to appeal to a wide range of people making it a great gift idea! It also lasts a spectacularly long time and when layered with the Gucci Rush moisturiser definitely lasts all day and into the evening.

                    Despite the often hefty price tag it's longevity and flexibility make it an economical purchase. I've often seen it available at Christmas in a box set with the moisturiser included for the same price as the perfume alone making it even better value.

                      Disadvantages

                      A scent that will suprise you all day long

                      Gucci Rush is the latest addition to my perfume collection and I have to say it is completely different to any other perfumes I have tried before.


                      Packaging

                      The perfume bottle itself is in the form of a red, rectangle, plastic box with a squirter in the middle. I'm not entirely sure about the design of the packaging, it has both positive and negative aspects.

                      I like that it is plastic so won't break it you drop it, I also like that it comes in a cardboard sleeve that it can just slide into. The squirter being in the middle enables you to get a good grip on the bottle and one squirt is enough to release enough product to last the entire day.

                      I don't like the fact that the bottle is red so that you cannot see how much perfume you have left. I like knowing when I'm running out so I can save my nice perfumes for special occasions if I'm running out of funds to restock. And although the squirter being in the middle can be seen in a positive way the fact that it does not have a lid to cover it means that it could squirt accidentally in your bag if you do not use the cardboard sleeve.

                      Scent
                      Now this is why I said this perfume is not like any perfumes that I have smelt before. You can spray it on in the morning and in the evening the scent is completely different, it could be a totally different perfume! I like this as it keeps you smelling gorgeous all day.

                      When I initially sprayed this perfume I liked it but I was not overly ecstatic as it was quite musky and heavier than the perfumes that I would normally wear.

                      However, shortly afterwards the scent got lighter and it smelt very floral. This floral scent develops throughout the day.
                      The notes found in the perfume are as follows:
                      * Heart notes: Jasmine, Coriander, Damask Rose
                      * Top notes: Gardenia, Peach, Freesia
                      * Base note: Patchouli, Vanilla, Vetiver

                      I really do like this perfume and am glad that I received it as a gift as I'm not sure I would have bought it if I had seen it in the shops. It may sound strange but looking at the bottle you wouldn't imagine the perfume to smell so enticing.

                      A description from the perfume shop describes the perfume as being irresistible, sensual and spontaneous. I think these are strange words to describe a perfume but after smelling the perfume you can see why they have said this.

                      I think this perfume is extremely versatile. It could be worn day or night as it is subtle but sultry at the same time.

                      I also think that the perfume is versatile in its age range and would recommend it for any one.


                      Price

                      The cheapest that I have found this perfume for today is £21.34 and that was on one click pharmacy. For a Gucci perfume I think this is not a bad price to pay at all.

                      Conclusion

                      This is a fantastic perfume for any occasion and for any one. I would rate it 8 out of 10.

                        ** Gucci: Gucci Rush, Eau de Toilette **

                        ** Gucci: Gucci Rush, Eau de Toilette **

                        Guccio Gucci was born in 1881 and was the founder of the House of Gucci. He was the son of an Italian wholesaler. In 1906 he started a small shop in Florence, with the intention to learn to sell. In 1920 he began to make Gucci bags for riders. This way he quickly built a good name and reputation. In 1938 Gucci expanded his business to Rome, his sons Aldo, Vasco and Rodolfo joined the business and Gucci changed from a one-man business into a family affair. In 1951 Gucci opened a shop in Milan. Two years later, the brand expanded with the opening of a branch in Manhattan. Shortly after Guccio Gucci died in 1953 and his sons continued the House of Gucci.

                        ******************************************************

                        In 1999, the Gucci Rush perfume came on the market. According to Gucci you will take a magical journey through a field of flowers when you use this perfume and is it a true addiction. The smell Rush is a combination of flowers and herbs. For this perfume they used the extracts of bergamot, vanilla, patchouli, peony, jasmine, freesia, violet, carnation and sandalwood. Rush is a fresh, slightly sweet smell. The frangrace smells very feminine, especially in the beginning, the flowers smell really prevailed. But if the perfume, the smell of patchouli more forward. And, the smell of the wood more advantage.

                        ******************************************************

                        The perfume comes in a red plastic rectangular box. It makes me think a bit of a suitcase. At the top center is a bit that you should press to spray. For the rest it's just red. On the left side you will find the brand and product name. I think the packaging is very trendy and youthful.

                        ******************************************************

                        I think this perfume is a slightly sweet and feminine. When I spray the perfume I found that it was a bit too flowery but after fifteen minutes came the scent of sandalwood came more forward. This perfume evaporates very slowly so you will smell it all day long. It is a gentle scent and certainly not too heavy. It's just subtly present. I think it's definitely a scent that also can be worn by youth. For myself I think it's more a daytime perfume. Also very suitable for your work wear. A really nice perfume.
