In the world of Arabian perfumes, oud is no doubt one of the richest, most complex and powerful scents. It comes as no shock then, that many large fashion houses, like Dolce and Gabbana and Christian Dior, have recently branched their fragrances out into this immersive world of oud. Now joining the collective of brands embedding this mysterious Arabian smell, is Gucci. Gucci Guilty Oud is a modern rendition of the Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme and Pour Femme, but infused with the iconic resin of Oud, described as a walk in a mysterious forest. “A perfume composition is like a well-written sentence: there are thousands of beautiful words from which to choose, but what makes it impactful is the emotion with which they are brought together,” Alberto Morillas, master perfumer and Gucci Guilty nose.
