Gucci Guilty for Men.
The newest fragrance from Gucci is Gucci Guilty Pour Homme. We were big fans of Gucci by Gucci, so we were looking forward to testing out the newest men's scent from The House of Gucci (details/review below). The face of their Gucci by Gucci campaign was James Franco, so for Gucci Guilty they chose yet another Hollywood star, this time Chris Evans (from Fantastic Four, and the highly-anticipated film Captain America: The First Avenger). Check out the Frank Miller (Dark Knight, 300, Sin City) directed Gucci video below:

TOP NOTES: lemon and lavendar
MIDDLE NOTES: orange flower
BASE NOTES: patchouli and cedar wood
Very detailed notes summary: "The scent seizes hold of the senses with a heady cocktail of invigorating Italian lemon and mandarin with crushed green leaves – evocative of sap rising – and a defiant punch of pink pepper. Its middle motifs persuade like a whispered invitation. The herbal freshness of lavender coils around an aphrodisiac cardamom note – at once stimulating and entrancing – on an unexpectedly tender bed of orange flower and neroli. The patchouli that is the hallmark of all Gucci fragrances is married with cedar and sandal wood gleaming with amber to create a robustly earthy, yet suggestively exotic sensuality of a profound masculinity."
Review: The fragrance opens like many of my favorite colognes with fresh italian lemon, but I think the mix of cedar and sandalwood (from the base note) with the lavendar creates a semi-stark ending for me. That said, once the fragrance lingers for a few minutes it leaves a masculinely fresh scent– which is always a great thing. This strikes me as easy go-to date cologne.
