Dolce & Gabbana - Dolce Eau de Parfum

$ 125.00

THE CONCEPT

Feminine and fresh, Dolce & Gabbana Dolce embodies the delicate balance between timeless craftsmanship and innovation in the art of perfumed composition. Dolce is one’s personal touch and signature scent. It epitomizes the simplicity of a result obtained thanks to a complex process: the same one needed to create a finely-embroidered dress. “The nobility of the soul, the elegance of every day gestures, the joy of sharing from generation to generation, and the effortless perfection of a single white flower. This is the picture of Sicily that I carry within me, and the one captured in this delicate fragrance” says Domenico Dolce.

A true floral signature, the Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Eau de Parfum presents an elegant vision of romance. The feminine fragrance is inspired by the legendarily noble beauty of Sicily, its gardens abundant with fresh white blooms. Pairing the best of vintage glamour with a contemporary edge, Dolce is a timeless Eau de Parfum, presented in a beautiful bottle and topped with a 'marzipan' flower reminiscent of those seen in the windows of Sicilian confectioners. Dolce opens with a bright and uplifting burst of neroli and papaya flower, sweet yet refined. The centerpiece is the full-bodied white amaryllis, a flower used for the first time in perfumery, captured using a process as complex and extraordinary as the fine embroidery of a dress. In the dry down, a smooth and sensuous trail of musk and cashmeran leaves a lasting impression.

 

THE SCENT

  • Top - neroli leaves, papaya flower 
  • Heart - white amaryllis, white daffodil, white water lily 
  • Base - cashmeran, musky notes, sandalwood

The white amaryllis is a special species of amaryllis which grows solely in the Fynbos region of South Africa and has a rich and generous perfume where other white amaryllis found elsewhere do not. The name originates from the Greek word “amarysso”, meaning: “I give light”. It has wide, trumpet-shaped blossoms The buds grow at different speeds so each will have a different intensity of scent. Dolce blends this into a fragrance for the very first time. The rich, fulsome notes of the white amaryllis were created using “Headspace Technology“, which captures the exact scent of the flower when it is in full bloom without having to cut it and grind the petals to extract the essential oil.

     

    THE DESIGN

    Dolce’s elegant packaging is reminiscent of a vintage fragrance flacon. Thick, clear glass with softly curved lines lends a contemporary design edge. The flower stopper pays tribute to Sicilian customs, crafted to portray the marzipan sculptures seen in traditional Sicilian confectioners. A thin black grosgrain ribbon, presented in an elegant bow, conjures images of the white shirts and bow-ties that were a signature of early Dolce&Gabbana catwalk shows. The final, and most personal, touch: Dolce signed in a flourish of black script, a replica of Domenico Dolce’s father’s own signature.
