I have a soft spot for delicate details, so you can imagine how sweet I am on Dolce & Gabbana Dolce, a fresh feminine scent inspired by the Sicilian countryside. I've been coveting the new scent since its debut; after all, I'm all about green florals! The perfume resides within Dolce's lovely vintage flacon with a beautifully sculpted stopper. You can imagine my delight at being sent a bottle courtesy of Dolce & Gabbana, and invited to share my thoughts about Dolce with you today!
Speaking of sculpted details, did you know the floral stopper was inspired by marzipan? It adds such a delightful sense of nostalgia. (I can still remember my first encounter with the sweet nutty confection when my father brought back a selection from Europe.) I would love to someday taste the traditional Sicilian confections from which this particular stopper was inspired. But enough on aesthetics, let's take a journey through the lucid green fluid within....

Dolce & Gabbana Dolce has the breezy, facile character of Italian-inspired perfumes, with hints of water fruit and florals. However, it's a softer feminine approach relative to optimistic blends a la D&G Light Blue; one finds the dulcet tones of water lily instead of salty seawater, sweet fruit tones in place of the traditional sharp bergamot, and soft florals instead of heady jasmine. It's more genteel garden than sunny seaside.

I love your photography! Your blog is always an inspiration to me.ReplyDelete
The perfume sounds right up my alley - I'm going to have to give it a sniff. And that bottle is absolutely adorable!
Thanks for the kind comment! I'm such a fan of the bottle --- hope you get to try Dolce!
I think I prefer the sea water, but you make me want to sniff this nonetheless. :) I did really like D&G Light Blue, but it was the signature scent of at least a dozen women I knew, so I gave it wide berth.ReplyDelete
Hi Liz, I love hints of the sea as well --- very nostalgic. I know what you mean about D&G Light Blue; I suppose it's popular for a reason :)Delete
Liz! I feel the same way, BUT did you know they came out with two light blue variations? they're called escaping to panarea and dreaming in portofino! a quick glance at sephora.com also shows one called living stromboli, and a guy's variation called discover vulcanoDelete
Dovey, lovely photos as always! :) I do think this scent is nice, and your descriptions of it are lovely!
I want to smell this asap but nowhere seems to have it yet!ReplyDelete
