What We Are Looking For In A Good Gucci Guilty Dupe

Gucci Guilty was initially released in 2010 as an amber, floral scent for women. The success of Gucci Guilty for women led to the release of Gucci Guilty Pour Homme in 2011, which has a rich, seductive feel. Both men and women have become addicted to the provocative scent of Guilty, especially those who love a fragrance with a more daring and alluring edge.

The feminine version of Gucci Guilty has a warm amber base and fruity and floral mid notes from Lilac, Peach, Geranium, Jasmine and Black Currant. Many dupe perfumers have successfully managed to mimic this well, but the male version was a little more challenging to replicate.

A good Guilty Pour Homme dupe will need to master a perfect blend of floral, citrus, woody and vanilla tones to mimic the rich and powerful notes of the original

The Essence Vault Gucci Guilty Pour Homme Replica: 65

Our testers loved trying out 65 by The Essence Vault. It has very similar notes found in Guilty Pour Homme, and they could easily pick out a pleasant leading tone coming from sweet rose, with depth and weight coming from rich and velvety oud wood.

The overall impression of 65 by The Essence Vault is one of classy seduction, but not so overpowering that it will turn heads wherever you go. While it is less strong and impactful than the original, 65 delivers a perfect balance of richness from its main notes of Damask Rose, Agarwood (oud), Praline and Clove.

Our testers consider 65 by The Essence Vault a close match to the original but would be happy to wear it during the day and not reserve it for only nighttime use. This dupe contains a fresh floral edge that is light enough to wear to the office, and as the scent settled down, it left behind a warm, lingering woody smell that felt comforting.
