Flora By Gucci 1966 {fragrance friday}


Gucci fragrances are fast becoming my new faves! I’ve always been more a Dolce & Gabbana/ Thierry Mugler gal, but since my GUCCI OUD feature, and now Flora By Gucci 1966, I’ve got a new fragrance BFF brand!

The GUCCI Flora range was so exclusive, that you could only purchase it from GUCCI boutique stores. Thankfully, you don’t need to venture too far! This gorgeous collection, including the new Limited Edition Flora 1966, is available both in the GUCCI boutique stores, as well as selected department store counters.

Flora 1966 celebrates the birth of a legend, true to the GUCCI heritage.

The story begins in Milan in 1966, when the then Prince of Monaco, Prince Rainier, bought his wife, Grace Kelly to the GUCCI boutique. Rodolfo Gucci insisted that Princess Grace choose a gift to accompany the bamboo bag that she had purchased.

Ever the lady, Princes Grace requested a scarf. Rodolfo felt that the House lacked one sufficiently beautiful for the royal style icon and so he commissioned illustrator Vittorio Accornero to create the most beautiful print he could imagine. Accornero returned with his painting: the “Flora”, a sumptuous, multi-hued, flowered template destined to become a design classic.

The Flora motif, prominent on iconic GUCCI scarves, is an unusual gesture; to offer a gift of flowers printed on silk rather than an actual bouquet.

To celebrate this heritage, Flora By Gucci 1966 comes wrapped in a beautiful satin bag, created to mimic the iconic scarf of Grace Kelly.

So if you’ve always dreamed of that GUCCI Flora scarf (I know I have), you can now own a piece of the heritage with this gorgeous fragrance.





This limited edition fragrance is absolutely beautiful! It’s distinctive, opulent and sultry! One that I imagine Grace Kelly herself would adore!

It has top notes of bergamot that are spiced with the intrigue of dark Bourbon pepper. At the heart, a glorious bouquet of peony petals, laced with an opulent, voluptuous rose. And to finish it off, base notes of patchouli are fused with vetiver and seductive musks to convey womanliness at its most refined.

You know me and my base notes! I don’t think I’ve ever turned down a fragrance with musky or vetiver base notes.

It really is a true essence of class; sophistication with a modern day flair that keeps it interesting and sexy!

Make sure you give it a try!

It’s available in a 100ml Limited Edition Eau da Parfum for R1 990 and will no doubt be your most prized fragrance in your collection!
