Inspired by the iconic flora universe, FLORA by GUCCI, combines rose, sandalwood, citrus and peony over a hint of patchouli. This theme first appeared on a foulard exclusively created for Grace Kelly in 1996.

GUILTY by GUCCI, a hedonistic scent, spiced with a touch of pink pepper and softened by geranium and lilac, is patchouli based like all frangrances by this house.

The iconic frangrance, OBSESSION by CALVIN KLEIN, was launched in 1985 with a combination of vanilla, incense and exotic spices. The Pierre Dinand designed bottle is inspired by Indian prayer stones from Mr. Klein’s private collection. Candlestick by Ted Muheling.

ARMANI CODE by GIORGIO ARMANI is a sublime combination of orange blossoms, honey and jasmine sambac over a vanilla base. A floral pattern enhances the shape of the bottle.

Contained in an alchemist-like amber bottle, SECRET OBSESSION by CALVIN KLEIN blends Egyptian jasmine, rose of Damascus and vanilla from Madagascar.

Encased in a Venetian glass carafe, tones of floral chypre, bergamot, Indonesian patchouli and leather evoke BOTTEGA VENETA’s Italian origins.

Inspired by the maison’s passion for travel, VOYAGE D’HERMES (by Jean Claude Ellena) combines hedione and citron with green tea, white woods and musk.
