Gucci fragrances opens a new story of magic and imagination in Luxury Collection: The Alchemist’s Garden.
Inspired by the science of alchemy, Alessandro Michele reimagines the path of transformation from lead into gold with the art of fragrance making to create seven eaux de parfum, four oils, three acque profumate and a candle. Alberto Morillas worked with Alessandro Michele’s vision on a collection using pure natural plants and flowers layered with modern molecules. Blended through rediscovery, a hero ingredient is magnified for each scent: Oud, Amber, Violet, Iris, Mimosa, Rose and Woods. Every fragrance and every formula is created as an unicum, telling the story of a place, a moment, a season, and a smell of memory.
The Eyes of the Tiger Eau de Parfum
In China, amber is considered the “soul of the tiger”, which enters the earth and then becomes a stone. The Eyes of the Tiger is an imagined journey into the soul of the tiger. Benzoin and Tonka convey a tiger’s gaze with a dark hint of Vanilla. The scent is rounded out with woody and sweet Ciste resin, representing a tiger’s contrasting sides; dangerous and sensitive, fast and patient.
