Gucci Guilty Absolute embodies the liberated man it is made for—an innovative expression of a men’s woody scent. There is a mix of messages behind the scent. A leather hero ingredient is an homage to the ultimate Gucci material; while the flacon is finished with details inspired by the codes of a refined lounge; the sensorial textures and colours of cigars and cognac.
The resulting scent features ultra-dry woody notes with depth and complexity. Intensifying the fragrance’s composition are three forms of Patchouli oils with sweet, dark and earthy character, and Vetiver, the fresh and earthy grass from woods.
Gucci’s Guilty Absolute is available in PH 50ml for £54 and 70ml from £70, it can be purchased in selected stores and online here.
