Gucci Bamboo Purse Spray Review

I'm sure I am not alone in stating that I am utterly bewildered by the lack of roller-ball and purse-sized fragrance options available within the UK? When you visit the likes of Sephora, U.S based or otherwise, there are entire stands dedicated to the world of travel convenient fragrances - yet it is a concept that is somewhat lost here in Britain.

Well perhaps not, as often with many beauty innovations, change begins at the top and slowly filters its way down the ranks. Leading the way with a beautiful yet handbag friendly bottle design is Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum; come early February, the brand will unveil the above travel bottle and I for one could not be more excited.

Gucci Bamboo Purse Spray Review

As a subtle nod to the signature note of Gucci Bamboo, the travel sized purse spray has been fashioned as a slinky, chrome stick of bamboo - in my opinion, it almost has the appearance of a wand. The slim, long-line design means that you can slip the bottle of fragrance into even the dinkiest of handbags, ready to freshen up in a moments notice and/or pop it into a travel bag - trust me when I say that the sturdy metal flanker will survive even the roughest of journeys.

If you are unfamiliar with Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum, purse spray or otherwise let me give you a quick introduction. Gucci Bamboo is rightly listed as a modern, feminine, gentle and multi-faceted fragrance, I'd go a step further and state that it is very crisp and clean - almost like freshly washed cotton. The main note composition is simple yet interesting with hints of : Bergamot,Ylang-Ylang, Casablanca Lily and Orange Blossom at the heart, completed with creamy and dare I say it rather dreamy hints of Sandalwood, Tahitian Vanilla and Amber. It is beyond easy to wear and will comfortably take you from work to play and all that is in-between. I can not begin to tell you how many compliments I receive when I wear this effortlessly cool yet classic scent - promise me at the first opportunity that arises you will test this out?

The Gucci Bamboo Purse Spray may not land for another few weeks but I think we can all agree that it hints at a shift within the fragrance world. Perhaps our trusty Travalo's will no longer be needed in the months to come?

As mentioned above the Gucci Bamboo Purse Spray will launch nationwide on February the 22nd and retail for £29/15ml. Until then you can find Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum via Boots - link.
