In her defense she said that "It's gucci on sale! You do not simply skip it"
When I read about the notes :
"TOP: bergamot, orange blossom; The fragrance opens with the luxury and exuberance of a vintage champagne. A burst of effervescent bergamot fused with feminine and celebratory orange blossom conveys the heady excitement of the red carpet entrance.
HEART: white flowers, musk; At the scent’s core nestle the brilliant white flowers of an intense bouquet, laced with a magnetically sensual modern musk. The timeless allure of the leading lady, the perfect balance of sensuality and power, inspires a collective captured breath.
BASE: leather, wood; The fragrance’s warm and indulgent foundation rests in a beguiling cocktail of subtly smoky leather and creamy balsamic woods that epitomises absolute glamour."
OMG I'm so gonna smell like an old-ish lady!
But, when I actually took a sniff, I was in love. Very, very elegant and feminine but not even a touch of 'old lady smell'. I first smell the leather, because I associate it with the lovely smell of Gucci boutiques. Next I smell musk, because it's very distinct and the musk creates the elegant 'aura'. After that, fresh florals came and lifted the richness of musk and leather to a beautiful light harmony. Perfection
The bottle is absolutely gorgeous, although I prefer clear crystal-like bottles. The glass bottle is painted semi-translucent gold so you can still see how much is going on inside. I have the 30mls (I always buy 30mls!) because I get bored with perfume easily. 30mls are perfect for the very non-committal me.
Overall, a very beautiful elegant night scent. If you like the smell of gucci shops, or you want to feel elegant without feeling old, then I would highly recommend Gucci Premiere. If you, however, hates rich perfumes and gets dizzy easily, you better skip this and get a lighter perfume.
Blind purchases are sometimes rotten sometimes golden! (ha see what I did there)
