Inspired by the mysterious power of Gardenia, Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia has been reintroduced as a delightful floral fragrance in September 2021. Its signature floral scent, product packaging, and advertising campaigns have taken the center stage and consumers’ hearts.


The collection is packaged in a new and elongated pink lacquer glass bottle, made partly from recycled glass, which is in line with the brand’s eco-friendly and sustainability ethos. The distinctive floral pattern on the bottle was originally created by artist Vittorio Accornero for Gucci in 1966, and the new design version is inspired by Alessandro Michele.

This is why brands choose social media as the best new product release channel and use AR technology to present their unique selling proposition in an immersive way.
