In 2017, Alessandro Michele intended to create a fragrance for Gucci that featured soft white florals and fresh greens as an homage to the complexity and uniqueness of the feminine spirit. Thus, Gucci Bloom was born. Gucci Bloom remains one of the top fresh white floral fragrances on the market and sells out regularly, especially around the holiday season. If you’re trying to get your hands on a bottle of Gucci Bloom and can’t seem to find it anywhere, you’ve come to the right place. Following is a guide to high-quality dupes and fragrances similar to Gucci Bloom that you should try.

What We Are looking for in Gucci Bloom
As its name implies, Gucci Bloom is a very feminine, floral fragrance. With soft top notes of jasmine and tuberose and finishing with a delicate base note of Rangoon Creeper, any suitable dupe of this bestselling fragrance will feature a combination of these notes. If you’re looking for an alternative, be sure to choose fragrances that invoke feelings of springtime and fresh, floral blooms that are uplifting and lively. When searching for a perfect dupe, it’s important to keep an eye out for perfumes that smell just as fresh and sweet as a bouquet of white flowers. Gucci Bloom doesn’t have a complex set of fragrance accords, so you’ll want to focus on perfumes that have a simple, yet fresh, formulation featuring just a handful of notes.
10 Dupes of Gucci Bloom
1. Diptyque Do Son Eau de Toilette
If you’re looking for an alternative to Gucci Bloom that’s a little warmer with more complex floral top notes, I suggest checking out Do Son Eau de Toilette by Diptyque. While it still features tuberose, there are other hints of jasmine, rose, and iris. It finishes on warmer notes of amber and soft musk, making it a more suitable option for date night. It’s a fairly long-lasting fragrance, however, to my nose I couldn’t detect any jasmine notes at the end of the day. Subtle hints of rose and amber tend to linger, so make sure that you enjoy those notes before purchasing a bottle. Do Son reminds me of walking through a lush garden of springtime blooms, and I think it’s a versatile option suitable for both the workplace and the weekend.
2. Michael by Michael Kors
If you enjoy white floral notes but prefer them to linger in the background while warmer notes take center stage, I suggest you try Michael by Michael Kors. Michael doesn’t open up with heavy white florals as Gucci Bloom does. Instead, I notice a spiciness when initially sprayed, followed by comforting hints of incense and freesia. As the fragrance matures I began to notice the familiar notes of white florals, especially tuberose, which is more predominant in Gucci Bloom. It reveals a warm woodiness base mixed with cashmere wood and vetiver as it settles. To my nose, Michael is not as overtly floral-like Gucci Bloom. The tuberose, however, is quite reminiscent to Bloom, but it is intermingled with peony and iris before quickly settling into warm base notes. Michael lasts much longer than Gucci Bloom, though, so this is a good option if you don’t feel like reapplying during your workday. The sillage is much stronger than Gucci Bloom, so make sure you like the way this fragrance works with your body chemistry before purchasing it.
3. Kim Kardashian by Kim Kardashian
Coming up next on my list of dupes for Gucci Bloom is Kim Kardashian by Kim Kardashian. This fragrance surprised me, as I didn’t expect it to smell so similar to Gucci Bloom. Kim Kardashian opens up with white floral notes, but I noted a slight citrus note in the background. It quickly transitions into notes of tuberose, gardenia, and jasmine which linger throughout the course of the day. It seems to me that there is a somewhat subtle spiciness that isn’t featured at all in Gucci Bloom, making this fragrance a much warmer option. As it settles I also notice a presence of woodiness, specifically sandalwood and tonka bean. These qualities make this fragrance a much more earthy choice when compared to Gucci Bloom. Overall, the quality and longevity of Kim Kardashian are surprisingly good, especially for a celebrity fragrance. I believe this fragrance is for you if you’re looking for an alternative to Gucci Bloom that features warmer, earthy notes intermingled with classic white florals.
4. Zara Tubereuse Noir
If you love white florals but find that they can be too overpowering, I suggest giving Tubereuse Noir from Zara a try. Unlike Bloom, Tubereuse Noir doesn’t feature any jasmine notes, but the tuberose is quite detectable as soon as you spray it. While tuberose can be too intense for some wearers, I found it to be more subtle and after a few hours I didn’t notice any hints of it at all. Tubereuse Noir has a slightly sweet scent and I also detected hints of cheerful yellow flowers, which only become detectable as it dries down. I think this is a good alternative if you’re looking for something that’s not as intensely floral as Gucci Bloom. However, I didn’t find this fragrance to last very long at all and had to reapply it about three hours into the day. You may want to carry a bottle of this fragrance with you if you intend for it to get you through a long workday.
5. Dossier Floral Honeysuckle
When you need something cheap, check out Dossier’s dupe of Gucci Bloom called Floral Honeysuckle. Upon first spray, I immediately noticed those familiar top notes of jasmine and tuberose. What surprised me was the subtle hints of honeysuckle as it matured, which aren’t present at all in Gucci Bloom. This note quickly settles into a cheerful base of freshly cut greens that remind me of a walk through the garden on a sunny spring day. The main difference I could detect between Floral Honeysuckle and Bloom was the noticeable presence of honeysuckle, which tends to linger and eventually outlast the jasmine and tuberose notes. I found this to be a pretty close dupe of Gucci Bloom upon initial spray, however honeysuckle is definitely the star of this show as it dries down.
6. Gucci Bloom Nettare Di Fiori
This flanker of the original Gucci Bloom was released in 2018, which is a much warmer, more complex formulation, in my opinion. The familiar white floral notes are present, but the tuberose is slightly more toned down, making this a good option if you like this note to remain more subtle as it matures throughout the day. There are warm notes of patchouli, ginger, and even rose, making Nettare Di Fiori an excellent option for evening wear. To my nose, Gucci Bloom is more of a spring and summer fragrance, but I think Nettari Di Fiori could carry you nicely through the fall as well due to its warm, musky bottom notes. Overall, I believe this fragrance is more interesting than the original and could be a wonderful signature scent if you’re looking for a warmer version of the original Gucci Bloom.
7. Our Impression of Gucci Bloom by Oil Perfumery
Here we have another dupe of Gucci Bloom that I feel deserves a place on this list. Our Impression of Gucci – Gucci Bloom by Oil Perfumery is a roller ball perfume that is applied directly to the skin. This dupe starts off boldly and, to my nose, is somewhat stronger than Gucci Bloom. The jasmine and tuberose notes are immediately apparent quickly begin to fade away. I needed to reapply it after a few hours, though the convenience of a rollerball fragrance makes it easy to do so whether you’re on the go or at work. For the price, I think this is an excellent option if you’re looking for something portable and lightweight. Don’t be fooled by how strong it is when you first put it on though, as it quickly matures and disappears within just a few hours.
8. Bloom from Gucci by Divain
Another dupe of Gucci Bloom comes from Divain which specializes in recreating designer scents at a lower price point. Bloom from Gucci by Divain opens up on a slightly citrusy note reminiscent of sun-ripened tangerines. I notice a stronger presence of green notes upon first spraying it, however it reveals a white floral heart of jasmine, tuberose, and honeysuckle pretty quickly. I find it’s similar to Gucci Bloom, however there is a notable difference as it dries down. There are subtle hints of vanilla that give this fragrance a sweeter vibe than Gucci Bloom does. There are also notes of lily and warm sandalwood that become more apparent throughout the day. Overall, I found this fragrance to be somewhat long-lasting and not overpowering, which makes this fragrance a good option for those who prefer a more subtle option to Gucci Bloom.
9. Floret by ALT
Floret by ALT is a dupe of Gucci Bloom and manages to capture its essence rather well. The jasmine top notes are not too subtle, yet not overbearing either. I liked the way it moved through middle notes of jasmine before finally settling into a combination of subtle white floral notes. There is a fresh green vibe to Floret that is quite similar to Gucci Bloom. Not many of the alternative fragrances previously discussed featured Rangoon Creeper, however Floret by ALT checks this box as it dries down. This feature makes Floret by ALT about as close as you can get to Gucci Bloom without springing for the real thing. To my nose it does smell slightly more mature than Gucci Bloom, but that could be due to its longevity. Floret is a great option for daytime wear during the spring, and is a budget-friendly alternative to Gucci Bloom. However, if you are looking for a more complex alternative to Gucci Bloom that also features some warmer notes as well, you may want to look elsewhere.
10. Benetton Colors Woman Rose
White floral notes can be somewhat one-dimensional, which can get boring and fade into the background once your nose gets used to them. If you like white floral notes but want to shake things up occasionally, I suggest checking out Colors Woman Rose by Benneton. Colors Woman Rose does feature that familiar jasmine note, however, the absence of tuberose is apparent upon initial spray. Instead of leading with floral notes, Colors Woman Rose starts off with citrusy hints of bergamot and orange. Like a few of the other alternatives mentioned, honeysuckle is also present as a top note before vanishing as middle notes begin to reveal themselves. To my nose, Colors Woman Rose is lighter and somewhat greener than Gucci Bloom. There is a slightly sweet coconut milk note as it dries down, with some hints of musk and wood that round this fragrance out. I don’t think it projects nearly as strongly as Bloom does, but it’s an excellent alternative if you’re looking for something more subtle and sweet.
On a Final Note
When looking for a fragrance that smells similar to Gucci Bloom, try to focus on finding options that feature ample notes of white florals. Any mix of jasmine, tuberose, lily, or even freesia will be somewhat similar and give off a fresh vibe. Choose light, airy options that evoke feelings of walking through a garden during a warm spring day. Stay away from anything that’s sweet or gourmand. However, options that feature slightly warmer, earthier notes within its fragrance accord should be fine as long as they aren’t overbearing or heavily featured. Stick to this advice, and you’re sure to find the perfect alternative to Gucci Bloom that works for you.
