Gucci Guilty Absolute pour Homme by Gucci

If GpH1 is like a classic 1970s Mercedes, Bentley Absolute like a 90s BMW, EN Extreme a WW Golf 4, then this one is the Audi Sport of the genre.

Nothing shy about it, a straightforward "in your face" sort of "I dont need you" kind of statement. Rude, yet classy, spartan but luscious, blue collar and academic simultaneously. No need for finger on the trigger attitude because this guy just looks at you and you offer him your seat.

A total sigma male that is just happy by himself sipping his perfectly chilled strong porter, smiles with a detached interest and never asks any questions. Not because he knows all the answers, just because he stopped looking for any. Been through agony and extasy and chose to keep the most intense memories of both. Got rid of any need of being noticed, and t wears a smell that shows a total lack of interest in other´s opinions. Nothing to prove, nothing to hide.

If bothered or interrupted he will pause before saying anything and make you feel stupid even before opening his mouth. In most case the answer will be "Of course not" . So everybody else just needs to take a chill pill and keep wondering if the notions of role model or father figure or dark rebel make any sense in the presence of such fragrance.


If you wanted a note breakdown or olfactory impressions then I aplogise. Prefer to keep my speculations (like the above) as speculations and respect others taste (or lack of) a little less than my own.

It is though a unique concotion and a true masterpiece. Enjoy!

Papyrus Oud / 71 by Parle Moi de Parfum

Oh man, this is literally a phoenix risen from the ashes - tried all the possible alternative variations (Bentley Absolute , CdG2, Gucci Guilty Absolute, and 2,3 others) but nothing comes closer to the original GpH as this one. Wearing both of them and going back and forth between right and left arm for the last 6 hours. There is an 5% offmark in sharpness and intensity but only a trained nose will be able to pick this up (PO more so than GpH1): Monsieur Almairac had his olfactory and memory sinapses in the right place when he worked on this modern version. Doubt it could get better. Damn expensive (reborn as a niche and 3x more expensive than its grandfather at the time) but still is a no brainer compared to the ridiculous exorbitant prices of the original hard to find nowadays. If you loved the original GpH this one won´t disappoint. Hope they´ll keep it alive enough for me to save money for backup bottles!
