SOTD- Gucci "Envy Me 2"

I have never tried any Gucci fragrances before. When I saw it available on My Perfume Samples, I hastily included one in my order.

Gucci "Envy Me 2" is described as, "floral with a leafy opening with a touch of wood. The heart is Ottoman rose and mauve heliotrope bouquet. The base is composed of woody notes of patchouli and sandalwood, softened by vanilla."

Oh yes, I definitely detected the green, leafy scent. I am not a fan of woody/herbal type fragrances, but this scent is not overpowering, and is not so obvious on drydown. That's when the florals bloom into a powdery soft, fresh note. The dirtiness of patchouli and woodiness of sandalwood ground this perfume, but only in the subtlest of ways. 

I find it to be a perfume that could easily be an everyday fragrance. But, not for me. It's not a perfume that I would reach for, to be honest. Maybe it's the rose? I'm not sure, not terrible by any means, but just doesn't excite me.

  1. The bottle sure does look pretty :)
    I wish I could give it a whiff to see what it's like. It sounds like something I'd definitely like to try out. What a shame it doesn't impress you Indie. I don't believe I've tried out any Gucci fragrances either.

  2. It's good to try new things. Sorry this one didn't pan out, it is such a lovely bottle.
    Years ago I used to wear Gucci Rush2. A very unusual scent for me but it made me feel very sexy and yet empowered. It was the Tom Ford era at Gucci, lol.

    1. I love to try different perfumes. Can be a bit expensive when I like them, lol. Rush 2 would probably be a movie I'd like, I love TF fragrances.

  3. Gosh I just LOVE this series Indie - of course my wallet doesn't because I've just placed an order with My Perfume Samples lol, and although I didn't include this one, I'm thrilled with what they have available and can't wait for them to arrive. You will always be Scentsation to me darling, and I thank you for encouraging me to explore another of my passions ♥
