Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Eau De Parfum

The latest addition to Dolce & Gabbana's line-up of fragrances materialises in the form of Dolce. This rich white floral scent is fronted by model Kate King and immortalised in print form by Domenico Dolce himself at a stately Sicilian home, sticking to the brand's Italian DNA.

Name: Dolce & Gabbana 돌체 & 가바나 Dolce 돌체 Eau de Parfum 오데퍼퓸
Price: RM 331 for 50 ml
Made in: UK

The Fragrance
The scent is smooth, fresh and crisp. It is not over-the-top and so easy to wear during the day, but still makes its presence felt with that special touch of feminine charm.

There is something about it - unassuming as it may be during the first spritz - for it is just as interesting when I wake up as it is when I hit the hay. It has positive effects on my mood as I start the day on a blissful note when I rise to a soft cloud of Dolce cocooning me!

◆ Top notes: Neroli Leaves, Papaya Flower
◆ Heart notes: White Amaryllis, White Daffodil, White Water Lily
◆ Base notes: Cashmeran, Musky notes, Sandalwood

It is an Eau de Parfum, so the staying power is really good. And for those who are in a bind for a Mother's Day gift, don't you think it will tickle your mother's fancy?

The Flacon
The graduating flower stopper portrays the marzipan sculptures seen in traditional Sicilian confectioners. It provides a contrast to the sparkling green liquid and the thin black grosgrain bow at the neck.

I have never heard of Kate King, but nevertheless she's gorgeous! I'm not a big perfume person but I have to say the packaging is adorable! I love the flower on top. :)

Ohh, i need to get a whiff of this! I collect perfume like a crazy person, but i don't think i have a single D&G one! Wonder if i'd like it though (i'm into fruity scents, Anna Sui perfumes mostly). I also often buy perfumes for their bottles *LOL*, i actually love the bud on the flacon :D

I am so in love with the bottle! If only my mom is with me, I would love to give her this, maybe when she visits me on December. I love anything that has musky notes so I thin I will like the scent of this.
