Gucci Made To Measure Eau De Toilette

The fragrance I am reviewing today really took me by surprise. It took me a few moments to adjust to the opening notes but it managed to reel me in quickly.

Meet Gucci's new Made to Measure!

Name: Gucci 구찌 Made to Measure 메이드 투 메져 Eau de Toilette 오 드 뚜왈렛
Price: RM 252 for 50 ml
Made in: UK

The Fragrance
Made to Measure is a clean, refreshing and slightly flowery fragrance that somehow borders on gourmand (promise I was not starving when I plastered my nose to my wrist!). It is one of those scents that I can't stop smelling when I am wearing it.

At a glance:-
◆ Top notes: Calabrian Bergamot, Tunisian Orange Flower, French Lavender, Anis Seed
◆ Heart notes: Sri Lankan Nutmeg, Water Lily, Juniper Berry, Plum, Cinnamon
◆ Base notes: Cistus Labdanum, Patchouli, Leather, Amber

With notes of Tunisian Orange Flower, Water Lily and Plum I can understand why it would appeal to both sexes. To be clear, it is still a man's fragrance, but one that you would want to share with him.

The Flacon
It arrives in a weighty glass flacon with hand-brushed golden accents. The cap, decorated by the iconic horsebit, is sturdy, and lends credence to the stylish image Gucci is trying to portray.

The Collection
Made to Measure is readily available at major department stores and perfumeries:-
◆ Made To Measure EdT 30 ml RM 198
