DOLCE by Dolce&Gabbana

Tuesday, March 25, 2014 by Wendy Lam

Dolce&Gabbana launches a new scent, Dolce, inspired by the memories of Domenico and Stefano. The scent is a gentle, feminine floral that features an opulent combination of White Water Lily and White Daffodil. The heart of Dolce is defined by the rich, lavish notes of the White Amaryllis, a special species of the flower that has never before been used in fragrance.

“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.

“Dolce is a contemporary fragrance inspired by a memory. The originality is not just in the way it was created, using traditional essences and other brand-new ingredients, but also because it is the translation into fragrance of a young new love that will, by virtue of its innocence, retain its youthful vitality,” adds Stefano Gabbana.

I quite like the simplicity of the bottle, which is reminiscent of a vintage fragrance flacon. The flower stopper pays tribute to Sicilian customs, crafted to portray the marzipan sculptures seen in traditional Sicilian confectioners. I love that they added a personal touch, Dolce signed in a flourish of black script which is a replica of Domenico Dolce’s father’s own signature.
