A poor facsimile of Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme... which this supposedly is.
on 15 October 2016
This fragrance is a very poor version of the original Gucci by Gucci pour homme. P&G have apparently insisted that the outer packaging and rename to Gucci pour homme is a rebrand and the fragrance is the same (according to the perfume departments of several major high street retailers), but I have a bottle of the by Gucci version and one of this new stuff and am quite certain that this is not true.
I have been using the original fragrance for a number of years and it has a lingering scent that lasts an entire day, or evening, which is not true of the current formulation... and it doesn't smell as nice.
Yes, it is cheap when purchased from Amazon, which is why I was initially convinced it was a fake. I have since been around the high street and found that this is the new original (as P&G would have you believe), so I am now mourning the loss of my favourite fragrance. Time to move on and find another, as I wouldn't want this one as a gift, never mind pay for it!
