Gucci Guilty for Men: Review and 5-Day Giveaway

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:

Cologne Details:

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.

POWER by 50

Years ago when someone heard the name 50 Cent two things usually came to mind: the catchy opening line, "Go, go, go shawty, it's your birthday, we gon' party like its your birthday…" -and- the fact that he was shot 9 times and somehow miraculously survived. Now when someone hears the name 50 ("cent" has been semi-officially dropped) they almost instantly think– Vitamin Water, million dollar tweets, and businessman. Curtis "50" Jackson is sorta like the Donald Trump of hip-hop– in terms of his diverse portfolio and growing knowledge in business. For him success isn't based upon where you came from, but about honing in on a "skies is the limit" type mindset. And that's sort of what his fragrance POWER is all about– embracing your inner power to be successful.

I've always been partial to light and airy, yet masculine colognes. So when I initially smelled POWER I wasn't overly blown away, but once the scent lingered awhile I was impressed. POWER by 50 is a traditional, masculine fragrance, and like its name the scent is full of powerful bold notes– so only 2-3 sprays are needed for a lasting effect. The bottle's design alone will make you want the cologne,  in fact, the sturdy and luxe look of the flacon was inspired by 50's favorite watch– a Piguet.
