Gucci revisits one of its most recognizable icons: the Bamboo—reinterpreted in a modern way. Taking inspiration from the symbolism of strength and elegance, this alluring fragrance translates the essence of today’s multifaceted woman. The modern Gucci woman shares Bamboo’s characteristics of confidence and poise. The fragrance is soft and intense at once, to exude power and femininity.

Italian Bergamot, Casablanca Lily, Ylang Ylang, Comoros Sandalwood.
Stong. Elegant. Feminine.

Sku Concentration: Eau de Parfum   Size: 2.5 oz
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bamboozling This is one of the few fragrances (ever) that I did not manage to understand. It took me about 3 times to spray the whole vial in order to get a remote idea what the fragrance is about. Woody? Earthy? Sensual? Not really. Multi-faceted? Yes, absolutely. However, in a way that is difficult to pinpoint a true base note and a lingering afternote. There is definitely something soft and modern about the fragrance, but I fall short to come up with more descriptive adjectives that would complement each other so well. It could be a good day-time fragrance to put on before going to work. It perks up the senses, even though the dichotomy is weirdly uncaptivating. I would not use it as an evening fragrance, because it lacks sophistication and distinction that are typical of most Gucci perfumes. Overall, this is a pleasant day-time fragrance lacking a certain "wow" factor. I wish it stood out more amid the sea of fragrances that resemble each other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sophisticated Scent Here's how the scent reacts with my skin. The strongest notes are the woodsy ones. Out of the Italian Bergamot, Casablanca Lily, Ylang Ylang, Comoros Sandalwood, I'm going to guess it's the sandalwood that comes off the strongest for me. When you first spritz it, you can smell the almost citrus note first, but as soon as it settles onto the skin, it's all of that sophisticated woodsy smell. I think it's safe to say that this is definitely a more "colder weather" fragrance and one that would fit a more sophisticated person. If I had to put this in an age appropriate category, it'd be 28+. I normally don't like woodsy fragrances. I used to be put off by them, but as I'm getting older and colder, I'm getting more used to them. It must be an acquired "taste". This is the same way. I disliked it at first, but I kept trying it and now I actually like it. Main note (on me): Sandalwood... woodsy Season: Fall/Winter Feels: Sophisticated [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bold but soft When I first received the Gucci Bamboo fragrance I thought that it was going to be a little too bold for my liking. I usually go for a light, softer scent. But I was pleasantly surprised when I first tried the fragrance. When you first put it on, it is strong but not overpowering. Then the scent fades a little and its just a hint of the perfume. I sprayed just one squirt on me the first day, fearing of wearing it too strongly and choking out my coworkers during the day. I was sort of saddened to find that the scent didn't stick with me throughout the day. So the next day I used a little more and got complimented that morning on my new perfume. I of course took the opportunity to buzz about it. I am wearing it today and can't smell it in the air around me, but if I smell my wrist or my shirt I can smell it. Its just enough to get that good reaction of, "Mmm, you smell good!" when you give someone a hug. Which to me is just enough. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fruity Version of D&G Light Blue I received Gucci Bamboo Perfume free in exchange for my opinions. I was not expecting to like this perfume, I'm kind of a Gucci hater... Well Bamboo has flipped me to team Gucci! As far as the scent it reminds me of a more fruity D&G Light Blue which is my favorite scent. I feel Bamboo is definitely more of a summer scent because it reminds me of honey suckle. It is strong so I would only recommend this on the wrists definitely not a walk through spray. Which means it definitely has great staying power and lasts all day. The scent didn't irritate my allergies which is a huge plus! I received the mini, but the full size bottle is clear/ very vaguely pink and looks like a square cut diamond. Very cute and definitely girly reminds me of a Marilyn type girl. The full size is affordable when compared to other things associated with Gucci. Overall my impression of this brand has improved and I would recommend this for very girly/flashy type girls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gucci Bamboo Fragrance is Amazing! I love it! I can't say enough good things about Gucci Bamboo Fragrance! It's the cleanest freshest floraly fragrance I've tried in a long time! I'm even asking my husband to get me some for Christmas! It's very yummy smelling and it lasts! I like after I've put it on and I hold my cat she smells delicious all day long. This is definitely a keeper fragrance that I want in my personal collection. I seriously can not say enough good things about this fragrance. I'm surprised I like it so much. I'm picky about my fragrances and this is just one of those fragrances that smells rich and clean if that makes sense. I also like that there is a touch of sweetness to it that makes it warm and rich which is perfect for this time of year with all of the holiday party's coming up. My only complaint is that I wish they would have sent me a little bit larger of a sample or several samples of it so that I can keep wearing it before my husband gets it for me for Christmas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for day or night. I tried the Gucci Bamboo fragrance I received -- I wore it to work in my office for a day and then again the following night when on a date with my husband. I am always cautious about which fragrance I wear to work so as not to offend anyone else around me. This fragrance was subtle enough to enjoy while not bothering anyone else. I liked the fragrance overall and thought it was very appropriate for daytime wear. I put on just a touch more the night I wore the fragrance out with my husband. It was an easy fragrance to wear and even my husband commented on how pleasant it smelled. So although I find it to be a very subtle fragrance, I do think it could work as a nighttime scent when sometimes you just want a little more "presence" with fragrance. I am happy I've gotten a chance to sample this fragrance because it's not one that I would gravitate to at the fragrance counter on my own. I'm excited to wear this scent again soon!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not too "Scentsational" For Me! I was super thrilled to receive my PREMIUM perfume in my latest BZZ kit so, needless to say had to rush to try it out. I had high expectations since this was Gucci which is a high-end line. I wasn't too impressed with the Bamboo fragrance, yet was determined to give it a chance. I dabbed on only two drops, and I do only two and left for work knowing it would lighten up on my way. I usually am not a fan of such strong scents but I wanted to like Gucci Bamboo. It wasn't too overwhelming but pretty strong and smelled very green. It just was not the scent for me. Several people asked what I was wearing and was surprised to hear it was Gucci, believing higher-end fragrances to smell superior to cheap perfume. It just did not live up to the expectations I hold for Gucci. Of course, I realize everyone has a different perception of what they find appealing but this Gucci Bamboo perfume was just not all that I hoped it would be.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Citrus, Floral, Earthy, Sandalwood When first spraying the perfume you get a subtle floral/citrus smell that has a clean, freshness to it, but after a couple moments you then can begin to smell a warmer tone of sandalwood. The clean/fresh smell changes out for a warmer earthy scent that has a hint of vanilla. This is perfect for those who want a feminine smelling perfume without being over powered by girly scents. It has a sweet, flowery smell, but isn't overpowering and then changes into a deeper, warmer scent. This is a simple scent that would be great for everyday wear since it gives you a clean, similar to a fresh out of the shower smell. My boyfriend is very sensitive to smells, if something smells to strong he starts to get a headache, so I have to be careful what I wear around him, but this scent was perfect because it didn't bother him (he actually loved the smell of it), but it was strong enough for me where I could smell it throughout my day.
