Gucci Guilty Stud Limited Edition from $129 b.png

Silver for the boys, gold for the girls

News flash: Studs are infiltrating beauty! They’re already ubiquitous on fashion runways and on a certain shoe brand’s coveted red-soled heels, and now they’re coming to a beauty aisle near you … for a limited time only, at least.

Gucci Guilty has been gussied up with a liberal sprinkling of studs – more than 400 per flacon, if you’re counting – that’s entirely in keeping with the brassy Italian fashion brand’s unapologetically sexy attitude.

The Stud Limited Edition may boast a striking new guise, but the scent within contains the same pulsingly powerful notes. Kicking off with vibrant citrus and a daring dash of smouldering black pepper, the intensely floral heart gives way to a simmering base of amber and patchouli.

For your Guilty “stud”, the Limited Edition Pour Homme throws in a lick of lavender and lemon, before rounding off with woody accords of cedar and warm patchouli.

Draped in silver for Pour Homme and gold for Pour Femme, sniff them out at your nearest Gucci counter, and grab them if you can – we fully expect these Instagram-friendly objets d’art to be snapped up by street-style types!

Gucci Guilty Stud Limited Edition Pour Femme EDT, $129 per 50 ml, and and Pour Homme EDT, $153 for 90 ml, are available now at Takashimaya Singapore and at all Gucci counters from February 2014. For more information, visit www.gucci.com and follow the brand on Facebook.
