Gucci The Alchemist’s Garden
Gucci’s latest luxury olfactory offering, The Alchemist’s Garden, is a collection of perfumes, scented waters, oils, and a candle, in the most OTT vintage-inspired apothecary bottles. Adorned with gold lettering, the Gucci animal personalities, petals, flowers and blooms delicately painted onto pretty-hued bottles, we think, signals an end to the millennial madness of sterile shelfies – although we’re wondering if you might need the Castello to match?
Each fragrance centres on a hero ingredient: Oud, Amber, Violet, Iris, Mimosa, Rose and Woods, but they’re designed to be layered – with over 48 possible combinations you really will be spoilt for choice. Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele partnered with master perfumer Alberto Morillas, who says, 'Each oil or floral water of the collection can be layered with each Eau de parfum – just play with the scent to find your favourite, as an alchemist would work to find the gold formula.'
