Continue Your Rose Obsession With This Fresh Fragrance
We’ve been on a bit of a rose kick lately (in case you haven’t heard, rose-based skincare is all the rage). We love when we get a whiff of our rose-infused face oil, but in fragrance, rose can easily go very wrong. Often it’s too strong, or just smells artificial. Well, that’s usually because it is. Then we spritzed Gucci’s Flora by Gucci Eau de Parfum ($64). The heart of the fragrance is rose, but not your average rose—this one actually recreates the smell of a living rose, which is much softer than the rose-based scents you’re probably used to. But before you get to the smooth floral notes, there’s a burst of juicy citrus. And it’s all rounded out with a hint of earthy patchouli. It’s a best-of-both-worlds fragrance—bright and fresh, yet still feminine and romantic.
