The two biggest perfume launches of the month have a lot in common: They both come in an LBB (little black bottle), they're both extremely seductive, and each one features a major campaign star. Dolce & Gabbana's Desire shows a sultry Scarlett Johansson shot by Terry Richardson, and Gucci Guilty--whose mini-film was shot by Sin City
director Frank Miller--stars Evan Rachel Wood.
Judging by their names alone, these perumes are both more badass than sweet. But the question is: Are you more of a lily of the valley (Scarlett) or a patchouli (Rachel) kind of girl? After a few spritzes, these were our findings:
The Product: Dolce & Gabbana Desire
It's seductive, but still feminine.
Mandarin, lychee, and bergamot balance out the sweeter, more floral side of the fragrance: lily of the valley.
If you love traditional floral fragrances, but are looking for a new one with a kick.
The Product: Gucci Guilty Black
It's all about indulging in guilty pleasures.
It's deeply floral and girly, but the peppery notes give it an edge.
If you're a sucker for Gucci's trademark patchouli scents.
