Gucci The Voice of the Snake was launched in 2019 as part of The Alchemist's Garden Collection. A collection that is inspired by alchemy, using natural plants augmented with modern molecules. Each is intended to tell a story of a place, a moment, a season, a memory.
Working with Alessandro Michele, created by Alberto Morillas, it is a woody spicy unisex fragrance. It is primarily an oud fragrance using notes of patchouli and saffron to intensify it.
From Fragrantica - "A deep, haunting blend of what my nose tells me is slightly animalic, mostly natural oud with saffron and patchouli. Personally, I love that there isn't a rose anywhere near this fragrance as I am fast reaching the point of fatigue with rose/ouds. The scent here is richer and more complex than either (my beloved) Guilty Absolute or Guilty Oud, but I see some similarities."
Fragrantica - "For stanky lovers only. almost smells leathery, smoldering upon first whiff. There's a slight spice, dark burnt wood. the patchouli is extremely dirty and withered not at all green. It is a snakes habitat, the perfect amount of putrid piss and foilage for cover. if this all sounds like a nightmare stay away. I love a beautifully done stanky fragrance. Most in the same vein go over the top as an art piece or not nearly enough, they all aspire to be what this frag is- the perfect wearable balance."
Fragrantica - "So DARK and MYSTERIOUS. Its like the scent of the devil waiting for you at the crossroads to offer you a deal for the price of your soul haha. But honestly its so refined, the quality is crazy good, and has several (moody) layers to it. Definitely a winter scent. It has a slight warm amber glow to it, like a piece of burning coal. I can imagine it sprayed on a black leather designer trench coat. This perfume SCREAMS: Devil wears Gucci."
