What Inspired Me To Make Gucci Candles?

What inspired me to make leather scented,
Gucci candles at Sweet Aromas 4U!

As an immigrant in Paris and then London, working in exclusive hotels, young Guccio Gucci (1881–1953) was impressed with the luxurious luggage he saw sophisticated guests bring with them.

Upon returning to his birthplace of Florence, a city distinguished for high-quality materials and skilled artisans, he established a shop in 1920 that sold fine leather goods with classic styling.

Although Gucci organized his workrooms for industrial methods of production, he maintained traditional aspects of fabrication. Initially Gucci employed skilled workers in basic Florentine leather crafts, attentive to finishing. With expansion, machine stitching was a production method that supported construction.

Together with three of his sons, Aldo Gucci (1905–1990), Vasco Gucci (1907–1975), and Rodolfo Gucci (1912–1983), Gucci expanded the company to include stores in Milan and Rome as well as additional shops in Florence.

Gucci’s stores featured such finely crafted leather accessories as handbags, shoes, and his iconic ornamented loafer as well as silks and knitwear in a signature pattern. The Gucci loafer is the only shoe in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

  1. Interesting! So where you inspired by the hard work ethic of Gucci as a business or the glamor and glitz of their products? (or both)

  2. Hello, I became inspired about, how Mrs Guccio Gucci had a vision to start his own business, after being inspired by what he saw around him (fine hand bags of hotel guest)

    I was also inspired about how Gucci company became a family group effort. Please do not get me wrong, the beauty of Gucci's sophisticated products draws my attention as well.
