An Italian luxury brand of fashion and leather goods, Gucci, was founded by Guccio Gucci in 1921. Since the launch of its first perfume Gucci No.1 in 1974, Gucci has been hard to forget producing a series of fragrances for men and women. In the 1990's, Tom Ford, Gucci's newest executive head, brought Gucci back to the center of chic, and he now commands a varied line of products.
