Nascent outlines, freshly formed colors, circled in crisp, fragranced air, soundtracked with the melody of a new season. A flower's petals unfurl for the first time, the rhythmic hum of bees, the earth glossy with dew. Blended to convey the budding first days of the season and the heightened rush of promise in everything new, Gocce di Fiori is a delicate eau de toilette rendition of Gucci Bloom. Ethereal and soft like the raindrops that fall in spring, Gucci Bloom Gocce di Fiori is a light, fresh version of the original scent. Delicately perfuming the skin, the fragrance is reflected in its Italian name Gocce di Fiori, meaning flower drops. It is blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas, who also created the other Gucci Bloom scents from the idea of Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele. Instead of a classical fragrance pyramid construction of top, middle and base notes, this eau de toilette opens fully at once with a trio of highly concentrated noble ingredients of jasmine bud extract, natural tuberose absolue and rangoon creeper. Rangoon creeper is the flower that embodies the Gucci Bloom scent story's concept and name, as it changes color from white, gradually darkens to pink, then finally turns red when it blooms.
Gucci Bloom Gocce di Fiori is available now at Nordstrom, $112 for 100 ml Eau de Toilette.
