Gucci Premiere : New Perfume Release for Fall

Gucci has launched a new fragrance called Gucci Première. It was inspired by the couture gowns from the Gucci collection shown at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. Created by perfumer Nathalie Lorson, Gucci Première is a soft floral perfume, and it includes notes of bergamot, orange blossom, blackberries, leather, myrrh, fur accord, patchouli, sandalwood, and musk.

According to Gucci creative director Frida Giannini, “For such a successful woman, something equally remarkable was required. Gucci Première is womanly, intriguing and as seductive as the perfect couture gown.” The ad campaign is fronted by Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively.

Gucci Premiere is now available in the UK at Selfridges, with the worldwide launch being planned for September.

  • Tammy: I thought that Gucci Guilty was nice but forgettable. This one sounds more interesting with that fur accord! August 28, 2012 at 9:20am Reply

    • Victoria: Curious to see what it is like. Hope for something other than fruity patchouli! August 28, 2012 at 10:00am Reply

    • eminere: Hopefully fur accord (whatever that is) isn’t damp dog.

      I cannot stand Blake Lively so this fragrance is already not faring well for me.

      And it would’ve been nice if they hadn’t simply rehashed the Gucci by Gucci bottle. August 28, 2012 at 10:17am Reply

      • Victoria: I haven’t seen Gossip Girls, not sure how I even managed it! 🙂 August 28, 2012 at 2:17pm Reply

  • Raluca: I tried it and find it sort of nice but not memorable and it’s smells very perfumey, almost cheap. The bottle is pretty. August 28, 2012 at 10:38am Reply

    • Victoria: Hmm, that doesn’t sound promising. August 28, 2012 at 2:16pm Reply

      • Raluca: Victoria, I’d like to hear your thoughts on the fragrance once you try it. August 28, 2012 at 2:45pm Reply

        • Victoria: I’ll definitely post something, Ralu! August 29, 2012 at 4:26am Reply

  • Lynn Morgan: Sounds like it is trying a little too hard to be all things to all people….blackberries? Why must everything have a fruit note theswe days? There is nothing sexy or alluring about the produce department of my local Ralph’s! As for the fur accord… I happen to find the scent of wet dog very comforting in context ( warmth, security, nurturing, bonding with my pet etc.- I am a devoted dog person) but I can’t say I want to drip in into my cleavage before an night on the town. As for Blake Lively- love Gossip Girl- the guilty pleasure of all of us aging preppies- love her personal style and don’t hate on her just because she’s impossibly tall, impossibly thin and improbably blonde- she didn’t do it on purpose.

    • Victoria: I seriously doubt that Gucci would add anything remotely like the scent of wet dog to their perfume. But if they did, I would applaud them for it. Sure would be less boring than another fruity patchouli. August 28, 2012 at 5:10pm Reply

  • Ari: Oh, Serena! I have to say that she looks much more comfortable in these ads than in her Chanel ads! I haven’t really enjoyed a Gucci perfume in ages, and probably won’t bother trying this. August 28, 2012 at 6:38pm Reply

    • Victoria: Rush and Envy are still my favorites from Gucci. August 29, 2012 at 4:16am Reply

  • L.: I tried this only briefly and not on skin, but was surprised by it’s lack of what seems today to be obligatory sweetness – actually, the muskiness reminded me of Tom Ford’s musk collection and not laundry musk at all. So I can’t comment on whether it smells cheap b/c I really didn’t spend the time with it but it does smell at least at the outset like an honest unsweetened musky accord.

    I also found it hilarious that the carded tester eschews the above list of notes in favor of simply “Woody Musky/Boise Musque.”

    BTW I approve of the Blake Lively ad altho I am staunchly with Team Waldorf. August 29, 2012 at 11:43am Reply

    • Victoria: Actually, that’s their new marketing tactic–avoiding the “notes talk.” But woody musky doesn’t really mean much either!

      Thank you, L! Sounds like it’s worth sampling at least once. August 29, 2012 at 3:03pm Reply
