Gucci promotes its new perfume on Instagram, and does so with the help of the spectacular illustrations of 15 fantastic artists
The sense of smell is the most mysterious of the five senses, both because it is the one on which we have less information, and because it is linked to memory and emotions. Capable of connecting with the external environment, the sense of smell helps us to perceive the world from afar but also our inner world. That’s why, to guess the perfect perfume to give to someone, it’s always so difficult.
The perfume is probably the most personal of all beauty products. While a red lipstick seems to have the same color shades on any woman, the fragrance has a different smell on each of us, depending on the chemistry of your body. Have you borrowed a fragrance from your friend that you love so much? Well, it will never have the same effect on you.
The new Gucci campaign is based precisely on this concept, essential the contribution of 15 female artists to create different interpretations of the brand’s new fragrance, Gucci Bloom Acqua Di Fiori, the latter created by creative director Alessandro Michele.
The new fragrance includes notes of jasmine, tuberose and buds of cassis, a real elixir, fresh and delicate, designed to evoke the feelings of youth, female friendship and invites you to rediscover yourself. It is perfect for young women, in fact it is the first major Gucci campaign focused on Instagram, which has recruited talents from around the world, including Phoebe Collings-James, the French tattoo artist Frances Cannon, Nouri Flayhan, the Italian Emma Allegretti, the Londoner Joy Miessi and New Yorker Joana Avillez.
The artists have had maximum freedom of interpretation through their style, with illustrations ranging from black and white drawings to colored comics, although there are common elements, such as the pale pink hue of the perfume bottle and the call to green. Each of them represented what it means to grow, the friendship between women and the metamorphosis that every girl goes through during adolescence, becoming a woman, discovering her personality, which over the years, will continue to define itself, to emerge.
Here is a series of illustrations designed and published on Gucci’s social media channels:
