[:en]Gucci makes you guilty[:sv]Gucci Guilty är mitt tips för fars dag[:]

Beauty & grooming

[:en]So this is not a new product out there. Far from it. But my blog is not all about sharing the latest trends and what’s hot right now. I’m more about sharing what’s always trending and what never goes out of style. One of these products is my all time favorite fragrance which I’ve been using for as long as I can remember: Gucci Guilty.

I’m not going to start describing why it’s such a lovely fragrance as most of you probably have had a chance to smell it already, but I will recommend it as a great present for all my Nordic readers (except Denmark, sorry guys…) as this upcoming Sunday Father’s Day is celebrated throughout our countries. And no offence to funny ties, all kinds of ugly socks, Tabac or Old Spice, but isn’t it time to update your dad, hubby, boyfriend, soulmate or whoever with this modern classic? I’d say yes, and dad, if you’re reading this, at least try to act surprised when you receive it, ok?

gucci-1 gucci2[:sv]Det här är ingalunda en ny produkt på marknaden, tvärtom har Guilty-familjen funnits ett bra tag. Däremot är det min personliga favoritdoft och jag minns faktiskt inte ens hur många år jag använt den i. Det finns faktiskt ingen bättre känsla än att veta att man bokstavligen andas in Gucci vid varje andetag. Och ja, kalla mig knäpp om ni vill.

Syftet till att jag lyfter fram den här doften är att det på söndag är fars dag (ni som glömt detta hinner fortfarande köra med damage control). Är det inte dags att skippa all dessa roliga slipsar, sedvanliga strumpor, dofter som Tabac och istället lyfta er far, man, pojkvän, livskamrat eller vem som helst till en ny nivå med denna moderna klassiker? Mitt svar är: ja! Och käre far, om du läser detta, du kan väl försöka att låtsas vara överraskad när du öppnar presentförpackningen?

    SO happy to see this review. My spin instructor & dear friend is obsessed with Gucci so this may be his Christmas gift. Going to go check it out and hopefully cross one item off my Christmas gift list 🙂

    I love the packaging on this cologne bottle! It gives it a very sharp look. It’s so interesting that Father’s Day varies across different places. I definitely agree that this is the perfect gift!

      It totally is! I don’t know why our Father’s Day is in the summer. It might be because we don’t have that much commerce in the fall season as you guys do as we don’t do Halloween (to the same extent) nor Thanksgiving. 🙂

    I actually never smelled Gucci Guilty but just from the look of the bottle, I love it already. It’s so fun to read your blog as I learn something new each time – like I never knew this Sunday is Father’s Day in Sweden as we celebrate Father’s Day in June here. I am sure no matter what gift you give to your dad, he would be acting surprised and feeling so proud!

    Just new to your blog, I love that you describe yourself as a male fashion version of Ikea. It’s such a grounded concept. In particular, the idea of recommending luxury and quality items that do not date is something I also love to do, so I am happy to have found your blog! Would you believe it, I have never smelled this fragrance! Next time I see it in a department store though, I will make sure to stop and check it out.
