GUCCI Moonlight Serenade Acqua Profumata

Gucci’s first Haute Perfumery line, The Alchemist’s Garden unfolds within an imagined laboratory filled with curious jars and mesmerizing scents. Blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas under Alessandro Michele’s creative direction, the customizable collection made up of eaux de parfum, perfumed oils and acque profumate (“scented waters”) is inspired by the art of alchemy and fragrance-making, formulated to be layered and blended together to create a unique, personalized fragrance combination. Built around a hero ingredient linked to the distinctive codes of the House, each scent can be magnified, muted or fused with other fragrances from the luxury collection to create a one-of-a-kind sillage.

“Moonlight Serenade” scented water is formulated with an extract of Lavender blended with notes of Sage and Tonka bean to create an invigorating and vintage inspired accord that will tint the eaux de parfum with an aromatic shade. The acqua profumata can be layered with an eau de parfum to give a fresh layer to the fragrance, resulting in a personalized blend. The acque profumate are presented in precious containers decorated with whimsical rows of pink buds from Gucci’s signature rose motif. Crafted from ivory lacquered glass, the specially designed bottles have a porcelain effect recalling the first perfumery containers displayed on the wooden shelves of antique apothecaries.
