Gucci Bamboo : A New Fragrance For Her

Strong and graceful, one of Gucci’s most recognizable design signatures has defined references in today’s Gucci woman. Bamboo flourishes in extreme conditions. Its natural strength compares to steel. Slender and elegant, bamboo soars willowy over other vegetation. The modern Gucci woman shares bamboo’s characteristics. She balances strength and confidence with her innate femininity.
Like bamboo, she is an alluring mix of many sides.

THE FRAGRANCE
Gucci Bamboo emanates the Gucci woman’s diverse sides: her femininity, confidence, savvy and strength. The fragrance represents her essence. A fragrance that is so true to her spirit, it’s tailor-made precisely for the Gucci woman.
Natural and resonant ingredients create a captivating olfactory story. Woody and warm notes vibrate through the heart and base. Deep Sandalwood, heady Tahitian Vanilla and unique grey Amber accords strike a complementary contrast with the exotic floral notes of soft Casablanca Lily, feminine Orange Blossom and delicate Ylang Ylang.


THE BOTTLE
Melding delicate sensibility with strong lines, the bottle becomes a visual statement. The distinctive bottle reveals the scent’s inspiration and Gucci’s famed design signature. Boldly cut art deco, diamond-style glass facets are juxtaposed against the curved, feminine cap and the pale blush scent inside. The sleek cap reveals bamboo’s unmistakable ridged contours in polished silver metal.


THE FACE
The epitome of strength combined with feminine allure. Intriguingly beautiful, emerging star Gal Gadot is the face of Gucci Bamboo.

THE CAMPAIGN
Gal stars in a compelling video campaign directed by Fabien Baron. The film reveals the Gucci woman’s distinct sides: her passion, her softness and her fascination.

Lensed by Mert and Marcus, the print campaign transfixes its viewers. An expression of irrepressible allure, the visuals depict a beautifully feminine Gal as the Gucci woman against an elegant bamboo motif. A juxtaposition of undeniable femininity and strength.

My Review
New in Spring 2015, Gucci introduced the Bamboo fragrance, which is in line with their range of accessories (handbag with bamboo handle). Personally, I find a frgrance named Bamboo to be strange. Being an ourdoor person and has seen many bamboo forest, I equate the fragrance to be awe-inspiring, strong, tall and sexy. With every wind or breeze, the bamboo would move and there isa refreshing nature scent that comes along.

After having the privilege of trying many different fragrances that are more masculine, trying on a feminine note is a refreshing change. The top note were citrus with flowery (lily) fragrance and it disappear fast (Citrus less than 5 seconds!) before the midtone Vanilla takes over. The base note of sandalwood radiates subtlety. I noticed that the fragrance do not last the whole day but sort of slowly disappear or weaken after about 4-hours. For those of you that love your fragrances long lasting, Bamboo may not appeal too strongly for you - but it promises a new breath of change and allow pleasant whiff of floral woody scent.

The bottle is very nicely designed and as a man, I find it appealing and sexy. Maybe that is the feminine side of me talking. Go check the fragrance out from July 1, 2015 at Parkson and KL Sogo. You may find yourself loving the fragrance like I did.
