Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme ~ fragrance review

Gucci recently launched Guilty Absolute Pour Femme* — a new flanker to 2010’s Gucci Guilty. Guilty Absolute Pour Femme is the female counterpart to 2017’s Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme (which I bought and enjoy). What attracted me to Guilty Absolute Pour Femme was its blackberry note (accentuated visually by its purple bottle). I was hoping for a sparkling, natural-smelling blackberry accord mixed with rose and touches of patchouli and Nootka cypress (GoldenWood): a happy summer perfume…
