Dolce & Gabbana have launched a new Limited Edition Velvet Fragrance Collection, made up of six new fragrances which are a â€˜tribute to the designers heritage and their natural ability to pinpoint the essence of Mediterranean indulgence.\’
Dolce & Gabbana shared: “The Velvet Collection revisits the splendour of vintage Italian ingredients and derives its name from the precious texture of a fabric laden with timeless perfection and modern possibility.“
The six limited edition fragrances include:
Velvet Sublime: is inspired by the orange groves of Sicily. Velvet Sublime radiates a sun-warmed effect with a splash of Sicilian mandarin. Joyful orange blossom and neroli reveal their crisp, dewy petals.
Velvet Love: is inspired by the carnations of Lake Como. This fragrance\’s redolent carnation flowers envelop oriental notes, giving in to an exhilarating rush of ylang ylang and pepper.
Velvet Desire: is inspired by the Renaissance period. This fragrance\’s fulsome white flowers provoke an explosion of gardenia and intoxicating tuberose, whilst a hint of frangipani offers a sophisticated flourish.
Velvet Vetiver: is inspired by the scent of the Mediterranean Summer. “Vetiver: a tantalizing scent replete with elegance and classic perfection. I wore it as a boy to feel as an adult.” Domenico Dolce. This fragrance has a classic, sumptuous cologne effect of vetiver and galbanum blended with a contemporary pique of Mediterranean fig.
Velvet Wood: is inspired by lacquered wood. This rich ebony wood fragrance offers profound depth, with warm resinous notes yielding to attractive benzoin and refined black leather scents.
Velvet Patchouli: is inspired by iconic incense. “Patchouli: the first fragrance I felt really belonged to me. It became my statement scent.” Stefano Gabbana. Velvet Patchouli is an intense, luxurious patchouli oil drenched with kephalis that cedes to a rich, musky presence.
