Chris Evans & Gucci Guilty get Intense

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Chris Evans is not only Captain America; Johnny Storm (aka The Human Torch from Fantastic Four); a “regular” Boston guy; and a lover of women who can rock a pair of sweatpants; but he’s also the face of Gucci Guilty. Lucky for us, after the success of Gucci Guilty and Gucci Guilty Pour Homme, the House of Gucci came out with a new, more intense version of the fragrance, aptly named: Gucci Guilty Intense.

The men’s fragrance intensifies its “manliest” notes of amber and leather. As for the women’s scent, its richness and mystery have been heightened by an increase of Gucci’s hallmark note: patchouli.

And with this latest version of the eau de toilette, comes a newer, sexier, more intense campaign—which Evans himself describes as being more like a movie, where he actually felt like an actor, as opposed to just a prop.  (More with Evans after the jump . . .)

Yesterday, this insider found out some rather interesting things about Gucci’s leading man. Here are some basics. Ladies, take note:

What he finds attractive about a woman: A good smile, a generally “jolly disposition.”

Currently resides: Back in Boston, “to feel normal again.”

Three essentials every man should have in his closet: Good belt, crisp white T shirt, great pair of jeans.

Three essentials every woman should have in her closet: Sweatpants, sneakers, gym shorts. (Plus, he likes ponytails!)

Felt guilty when: He read Playboy in third grade. (He ended up confessing to his mother the very same day. Swoon!)

Favorite role as an actor: his role on the independent law drama, Puncture.

Most desired superpower: Flight.

Guilty pleasure: America’s Funniest Home Videos.

So, since it’s safe to say Evans himself won’t be any of our 8 days of presents, stuffed in our stocking or neatly wrapped up under our tree—Gucci Guilty Intense is the next best thing.
