Hi APJ!

Another place I had fun on our USA holiday was the Gucci outlet store in Desert Hills. They had the Diamond Editions of Gucci Guilty, along with some really fab travel sprays of Gucci by Gucci Sport and Guuci Made to Measure. These travel sprays felt light but robust and had a rubberised coating for a firm grip. Great for the gym, but unfortunately not refillable.

The perfume which caught my eye of course was on the top shelf out of reach so I had two assistants helping me with a ladder to get it down. This was “Forever Now” – Gucci Museo, released in 2013 as a tribute to the Gucci Museum in Florence. The museum itself seems to be temporarily closed so don’t get too excited if you’re in the area. I tried some on skin as I walked away from what could have been an expensive US$200 impulse buy.

Forever Now (Gucci Museo) by Lorenzo Villoresi

Fragrantica

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Bergamot, mandarin, lavender, black pepper, orange blossom
Heart: Leather, florals, Florentine iris, Morroccan and Bulgarian rose, jasmine from Grasse, ylang-ylang, nutmeg
Base: Vetiver, patchouli, precious woods, amber, musk

Out in the foothills of the desert with a dry and dusty warm wind, Gucci Museo opened with a smooth black pepper and a clean leather, having touches of amber behind it. It didn’t strike me as overly masculine, it was soft and well balanced. A subtle ylang ylang came through on my sun-struck skin over the next half hour, and honestly that is about as far as I got with it as we got swept up with making the most of our shopping time. So, sorry, that’s it for my review but I liked what I got out of it in the first hour and it would have been a purchase I’d have been happy with – if my funds stretched that far at that time…..

    Hey TinaG,
    I have a bunch of the Gucci scents in my collection. The ones I like the most are Gucci Envy man, original Gucci Guilty woman and Envy Me II.
    All of them get regular wearings around here.
    There are a bunch of others that come out less often.

    I’ve been looking at this one, wondering.. thanks for the review! Pleased to hear it’s not too masculine. I might have to investigate further.
    I love Gucci II and am a bit of a closet fan of Gucci Flora 1966.

      Hi Renren, it’s definitely worth checking out. I need to revisit as I never quite did get to the base notes properly in this first sniff. I enjoyed it though, wearable but with enough oomph to be interesting.
      My Gucci knowledge needs some updating – thanks for the tips!
      Tina G xx

    Thanks for the review. Forever Now is on my want list & few years back I missed buying in Dubai Duty Free shop because of my light wallet.
    My favorite from Gucci are Gucci Rush, Envy and Pour Homme.

    Forever Now is very good, I love it, but only have a small decant. -boohoo
    I think I love vintage Gucci Gucci EdP from 2002 -in the clear glass bottle- the best; for men it is Gucci Nobile for me.
