Hunger Wants: Gucci’s The Alchemist’s Garden collection

The prettiest perfumes in the land.

Enter Gucci’s The Alchemist’s Garden collection; a story of “magic and imagination”, the new luxury scent collection is inspired by the science and art of alchemy influencing the old art of fragrance. The result? Seven eaux de parfum, four perfumed oils, three acque profumate and a scented candle. Rich floral scents, antique-inspired bottles and names like “The Virgin Violet,” “A Song for the Rose,” and “Tears of Iris”. We’re into it.

“The idea that some primary scents of perfumery, like the essences of the flowers, the green scent of some plants could be joined to atmospheres, linked to memories,” Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele explains. “And also link to the idea that a perfume in an alchemical way can through a scent bring you back to a different place, through a sense so strong and so important for every human being.”
