If you liked the original Flora, you might want to check out this free sample of Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia EDT. This sample unfortunately does not come with a spray vial, just the old fashioned splash which of course makes it more challenging to apply it properly and the fact that it’s a EDT where you’ll need more to really smell it. Comes in a carded cover with a 2ml vial.
I don’t know about you, but I really liked the original Flora. Gorgeous Gardenia feels like the little sister who wants to get the same attention as the big sister but just can’t because it’s not the same, and that’s how I feel about this. It’s nice but I’m not a big fan of strong floral scents and this one is just too strong for me. I do like the fact that it’s a bit musky which makes it feel more mature. I’m finding that it smells very similar to Viva La Juicy except for that musk scent.
Another thing I noticed about Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia EDT was that it just doesn’t seem to last very long on me. After about an hour or 2 it seems to really die off. Which is a shame. If it was a scent that I enjoyed I might actually consider using an unscented lotion and dab it into the lotion and then rub it into my skin. Just a tip for those of you who find a fragrance you like but it doesn’t last long.
I did get a few compliments from a couple strangers at the grocery store while I was waiting in line, so that was nice but overall, I didn’t really care for my free sample of Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia EDT. It just goes to show you that tastes in fragrance really are so personal and unique from person to person.
