Israel-born actress and model Gal Gadot is the new face of Gucci Bamboo. The exotic woodsy fragrance reflects the many characteristics of the Gucci woman – femininity, confidence, wisdom and strength – all of which can also be attributed to its gorgeous spokesmodel. We caught up with Gal to talk fragrance, holiday musts and New Year’s resolutions.
How do you get your home ready for the holidays?
If I am having people over, then of course I will set a beautiful table and decorate the house.
Do you like to give fragrance as a gift?
Fragrance is such a perfect gift for the holidays because it is so joyful and sensory. It’s a lovely gift to give to someone special. I think when you buy fragrance for someone you love, you put a lot of thought into it and try to match it to their personality. Yes, it’s a traditional gift – but a wonderful one.
Who would you gift Gucci Bamboo to?
I would gift Gucci Bamboo to all the fantastic women in my life. Gucci Bamboo represents an amazing woman, so it’s natural to want to give it to the women you know who are fantastic too. I love recognizing Gucci Bamboo on women I meet – it’s like I know we will get along because we love the same scent!
Where do you like to spend the holidays?
We travel a lot – for me it is not about where we spend it but with whom. As long as I have my family with me, I am happy. Home is where you are together.
What are you going to be wearing to holiday parties this year?
I am still trying to decide. There are so many options. I’d need a LONG holiday to wear everything I like!
Do you believe in New Year’s resolutions or setting goals for the new year?
Not so much the new year but on every birthday I do a “self-thinking” and see what I want to improve, learn from my mistakes and try to be a better person. I am very goal-driven. I work with lists and try to be very organized. And I try to make every year a bit better than the last one. But overall I am very grateful.
What sort of goals do you have in store for 2016?
For 2016, it’s more of a general goal: to keep on experiencing and doing things that challenge me.
Gucci Bamboo is available at Hudson’s Bay, Holt Renfrew, Shoppers Drug Mart, Sephora and Murale.
