Gucci Flora Garden Collection

Left to Right: Gracious Tuberose, Gorgeous Gardenia, Glamorous Magnolia

The Gucci Flora Garden Collection out this Spring is pure bliss. Inspired by the House of Gucci scarf which was originally designed for Princess Grace of Monaco, the collection features 5 new floral fragrances for each of the scarf's blooming flowers.

I've never been a fan of floral perfumes but the light sweet smell of this collection has me preaching otherwise. Here, I'm featuring 3 of the 5 scents.

Gracious Tuberose - violet leaf top note; tuberose heart note; cistus and sandalwood base notes.

Gorgeous Gardenia - red berries and pears top notes; gardenia heart note; warm frangipani flower, patchouli and brown sugar base notes.

Glamorous Magnolia - freesia top note; peony and magnolia heart notes; sandalwood base note.

I don't have a favorite so far and have been wearing all three of these scents, not all at the same time of course. I love how feminine they make me feel.

How cute is this box?

Full contents of the collection
Samples for friends :)

As a Bzzagent, I received this campaign to share with you lovely people. The gorgeous Gucci box contained 3 mini perfume bottles, a book of samples and info and a bunch of perfume samples for my friends. They really like the new collection as well.

Being a Bzzagent is pretty cool, it's free to join and you get to try out new products during their campaigns. These mini Gucci bottles are now a part of my mini perfume bottle collection :) And how pretty is that box they came in? It sits so elegantly on my new Ikea makeup storage unit.

If it weren't for the expensive price tag, I would purchase these scents to add as staples of my collection.

Availability: Nordstrom
Price: $72/1.6 oz; $100 for 3.3 oz
