The heritage

As with Flora by Gucci, the inspiration for The Flora Garden Collection originates in an iconic design from the Gucci archives, rediscovered by Giannini.

 

The story began in Milan in 1966, when Prince Ranier of Monaco brought his wife to the Gucci boutique. Roldolfo Gucci insisted that Princess Grace choose a gift to accompany the bamboo bag she had purchased. The Princess 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 sumptuos, multi-hued, flowered template destined to become a design classic.

 

Women fell in love with Flora: the motif spoke to their sense of beauty and femininity. Mothers shared their devotion with their daughters. One such daughter was Princess Caroline of Monaco, who sported a blouse in her mother’s print. Another was a youthful Frida Giannini, whose mother had been captivated by the pattern.

 

When Giannini, revived Flora on printed canvas bags in summer 2005, a new generation succumbed to its charms. In 2006, it appeared re-scaled, re-coloured and abstracted onto Forties-style print dresses, jewellery and evening bags. Now it has flourished to even greater heights in Flora by Gucci and The Flora Garden Collection

 

The Flora Garden Collection

The Flora Garden takes five blooms from this historic print and creates a bouquet of discerning eau de toilettes in their honour.

 

The Flora Garden woman is youthful, enigmatic, beguiling - contemporary, but with a sensitive appreciation of the past. There is more – much more - to her than meets the eye, not least, a fusion of strength with grace. Each perfume, each colour explores a different bloom and with it a different facet of this most alluring of heroines.

 

Giannini remarks: “Creating The Flora Garden collection allowed me to express the depth of emotions of every woman. Each fragrance is distinct, yet together all the scents embody the beauty and allure of this muse.”

Glorious Mandarin

A gloriously juicy fruit: Gucci captures the exhilaration of mandarin.

Top notes: mandarin, peony

Middle notes: jasmine, pina colada accord

Heart notes: ambergris, white musk, creamy wood

 

This magnificent scent blends joyful mandarin with the tropical rum and pineapple of the pina colada. In place of the traditional coconut, the cocktail is completed with creamy wood notes that are at once contemporary and sumptuously feminine.

Glorious Mandarin is an exuberant expression of the fruit’s effusive energy. The euphoria it imparts is glorious.

The Glorious Mandarin woman is inspiring and intoxicating. Time in her company is enlivening. Her spirited approach to life is utterly thrilling.
