Guccio Gucci

Guccio Gucci was born on the 26th March 1881 and died on the 2nd January 1953.

Gucci was an Italian-British business man, as a teenager he started out as a lift boy in the 1900s at the Savoy Hotel, where he gained his inspiration to sell top quality clothing to the public.

In 1921 he returned to Florence to pursue his dream and at this time he decided to sell leather goods, mostly bags to horsemen on the carriages and as his reputation grew for the quality he produced his business started to take off.

By 1938 he expanded his business to Rome where he continued to grow his empire through Europe and in 1953 he expanded to America in Manhattan.

By 1997 the company had over 97 stores worldwide.


Alberto Morrillas


Alberto Morrillas was born in 1950 in Seville, Spain where he moved to Switzerland at the age of 10.

He studied at Ecole des Beaux Arts in Geneva for 2 years before joining in 1970, the fragrance company Firmench where he has produced over 7000 perfumes in his time at the company.

As he is self-taught it’s truly amazing to accomplish so much during his time there.

Description of Notes

  • Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
  • Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
  • Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.

What was our Findings

Gucci Memoir D’une Odeur is a long-lasting, beautiful fragrance that kept on giving. We applied it in the morning before leaving for work and the fragrance was still there on our return home.

Prices tend to start from £42.00 to £87.00 as it depends on the size and obviously where you purchase it from, so I have to say for the price this perfume was excellent.

We applied the product on in the morning and it lasted right through to the evening, and as a bonus this perfume is gender neutral, so you and your partner could share. It has a unique fragrance that is beautiful and not overpowering.

Public Reviews

  • Good perfume excellent fragrance
  • Super beautiful fragrance.
  • Intoxicating but delicate scent
  • It’s a delicious perfume. Very soft and elegant
  • This beautiful scent of memory makes me sad.
  • I completely agree with the other reviewers that this scent is only good when it has been on the skin for a few minutes. When I first sprayed it in the air and on the paper testers in the store I did not like it at all.
  • I was even annoyed that I had sprayed it on my wrist when I was out for the day and wanted to wash it off. After a few minutes though, the scent was so amazing.

Reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume

The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper.

Because of this, the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent, which is really a false saving because  over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.

There are lots of reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume as the following will explain;

Description of Types of Perfume

  • Perfume or Extrait –  in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds. 
  • Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) –  15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
  • Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) –  10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
  • Eau de toilette (EDT) –  5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
  • Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) –  Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
  • Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.

Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?.

Well most people will put their perfume in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume.

Perfumes hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom, so my advice would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as the manufacturer specifications.
