It all started in Milan, the year was 1966, when Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly walked into the city’s Gucci boutique. Roldolfo Gucci insisted Princess Grace choose a gift to complement the bamboo bag she purchased, and as every classy lady should, she requested a scarf. But no ordinary scarf was worthy of such a stunning royal, so Gucci commissioned illustrator Vittorio Accornero to create the most beautiful print he could imagine. What resulted was the famous Flora pattern, revived in 2005 by creative director Frida Giannini. And now, you can smell like this iconic floral illustration with Gucci’s The Flora Garden Fragrance Collection.
Comprised of five fragrances, each a different bloom from the original illustration, the Flora Collection is as youthful and contemporary as it is classic. “Creating The Flora Garden collection allowed me to express the depth of emotions of every woman,” Giannini said. “Each fragrance is distinct, yet together all the scents embody the beauty and allure of this muse.”
We have fallen in love with these beautiful fragrances, and you will too. There is one for your every mood.
