At the end of the 19th century, Guccio Gucci worked at exclusive hotels in London and in Paris . Impressed with the
luxurious luggage of the guests, Gucci returned to Florence, where he set up shop and produced and sold the type of fine
leather goods that he saw during his time abroad. The offerings of the early Gucci store were simple and only included
leather items such as luggage, accessories, handbags, and shoes. In time, and based on their popularity among movies
stars and jet-set travelers, Gucci products became known worldwide as an international status symbol. As a result, Gucci
became a staple of lifestyle magazines around the world.
The 1960s and 1970s were good for the family-run business, but the 1980s and 1990s saw the family relinquish ownership
of the company. The image of Gucci was revitalized in the 1990s and was brought back to the center of chic, commanding a
varied line of products including fashions, accessories, jewelry, perfumes, and colognes.
Though Gucci fragrances and colognes were introduced to the world several decades ago, it was not until their
reorganization in the 1990s that the sale of Gucci scents began to take off. The brand offers something for everyone, as
it features both Gucci cologne for men and Gucci perfume for women. Popular perfumes include Envy, Envy Me, and Envy Me
2 as well as Gucci by Gucci for Women. In terms of cologne, there is Gucci by Gucci for Men among other men?s
fragrances. Like everything else Gucci, the Gucci fragrance line is of exceptional quality and is a popular choice among
discerning customers around the world.
