Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme Eau De Parfum

This year, Dolce & Gabbana gives their all time best sellers a stunning new look and a new scent. It is all about going back to the roots - traditional shapes, pattern and fabrics; back to passion, back to true Sicilian values. Before I start with the review of Pour Femme, let's get behind the scenes on the sizzling campaign masterminded by Mario Testino... I hope you enjoy!

And now, the video:

Name: Dolce & Gabbana ドルチェ & ガッパーナ Pour Femme プールファム Eau de Parfum オードパルファム
Price: RM 305 for 50 ml
Release date: 1.11.2012 (Malaysia)
Made in: UK

Pour Femme is attired in a simple, elegant and quintessentially Dolce & Gabbana bottle. Coincidentally, the peach coloured liquid and burgundy cap matches my view of it, which shall be revealed below.

I consider Light Blue Dreaming In Portofino as one of my favourite scents, and I am delighted to add Pour Femme to my collection. If I compared Light Blue Dreaming In Portofino to a cool crisp day in spring, Pour Femme would be a blazing hot day in the height of summer.

The fragrance opens with delicate hints of neroli, raspberry and green mandarin. They are then wrapped up in a bouquet of floral fancies consisting of jasmine and orange blossom. The finishing touches come from guimauve, vanilla, heliotrope and sandalwood, which gives the perfume a sweet yet sensual scent.

It starts off strong but the scent mellows down and then fades. Very quickly. My only gripe is that it lacks longevity for an Eau de Parfum as it needs refreshing every few hours.

This fragrance is not what I reach for on an everyday basis. I prefer to save it for occasional evenings out *teehee*

It is available in three different sizes - 25 ml for RM 216, 50 ml for RM 305 and 100 ml for RM 383 - and is accompanied by a body lotion (RM 143 for 200 ml) and a shower gel (RM 135 for 200 ml).
