Beauty, FragranceA Première Fragrance

Gucci has a new fragrance out – Première – and it’s really interesting.  I’m usually more a fan of the clean scents (as I’m sure you all know since I’m constantly gushing about, well, the CLEAN brand…) but I can’t get enough of Première since I sniffed it a few weeks ago.  It was inspired by the stunning gowns from the Gucci Première couture collection show at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, and the scent was made to celebrate the star in every woman.
