Oozing floral sophistication, wisteria has been catapulted into the spotlight, mainly due to the recent launch of Gucci Guilty Elixir Pour Femme.

Wisteria offers an enchanting floral scent that is subtly sweet, sometimes musky, sometimes spicy, and always intoxicating.

I find wisteria pairs well with notes such as vanilla for warmth, rose for depth, and lighter citrus notes that offer a sparkling contrast to its lush sweetness.

Engaging with each of these scents, I’m left wondering why wisteria, with its profound beauty, is generally an underappreciated floral note.

Each wisteria fragrance I have chosen offers a unique interpretation of this seductive flower, providing a spectrum of experiences due to their other notes such as citrus, vanilla or complementing flowers like jasmine.
