To celebrate their 30th anniversary, Guess launched, last February, a new fragrance for young women in their 20s. Their aim, as Steve Mormoris of Coty Beauty revealed, was to “create something that will preserve sex appeal and youthful spirit of the brand”. While it is true that Guess is a youthful and sexy brand, it is also edgy and glam, so I was disappointed, but not surprised, to discover that the new Guess Girl is just another sweet fruity floral concoction.
Guess Girl starts with a sharp and sweet burst of raspberry, enriched by hints of bergamot and melon. As times passes, the fruity notes become softer, but they never disappear completely. They remain quietly in the background, leaving the stage to a delicate bouquet of orchids and lily. All too soon, the fragrance ends with a strong, but not overpowering, note of sandalwood sprinkled with vanilla accents.
Guess Girl is a fresh, youthful and lovely little scent that will definitely appeal to its target audience. But it’s also one that’s been smelled a thousand times before. There is absolutely nothing original about it and it doesn’t even last that long. Although it has good sillage, it only lingers on the skin for 6 hours. And let’s not even talk about the packaging. It already looks cheap in the promo photos. In real life, it is much worse.
Guess Girl by Guess is just another sweet fruity floral scent. It’s youthful and fresh, but also boring and unoriginal. Sillage is good, but staying power is only average.
