This fine blend of white flowers leaves a wonderful light and fresh scent on your skin. It opens with delightful splashes of sweet neroli leaves and fruity papaya flowers, while the middle notes are composed of opulent white flowers and include water lily, narcissus and white amaryllis. Base notes are soft and warm featuring musk and cashmeran, but also a delicate touch of sandal wood.
With this fragrance Dolce & Gabbana were very innovative in both blending scents together and using new technologies. White amaryllis which grows only in the Fynbos region of South Africa was ever used in a perfume before. Its name originates from Greek word “amarysso” which means “I give light” and it has beautiful trumpet-shaped blooms. The scent is very rich and it was created by using Headspace technology which extracts the scent without cutting the flower or grinding the petals.
Just like every fashion and beauty creation by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, this gorgeous perfume is inspired by their memories of Sicily. It is seductive and passionate, but also very delicate and feminine which is why it is simply ideal for brides.
The video campaign for this fragrance is a short film shot by Academy award-winning director Giuseppe Tornatore which captures both the historical background and poetics of the Dolce fragrance. It is a love story of two young people who communicate only with their eyes and through gestures of children.
Twenty-year-old Canadian model Kate King plays the leading role and she reminds us of a bride dressed in a dreamy white lace dress. She looks sensual and innocent with her almond-shaped hazel eyes, flawless skin and her refined beauty epitomises traditional Sicilian woman which is an endless inspiration for Dolce & Gabbana. The film celebrates Sicilian country life and focuses on lemon harvest which is a very special time of year for every village. Soundtrack was written by famous composer Ennio Morricone and it perfectly matches cheerful and romantic mood of the film.
Even the packaging design is influenced by Dolce & Gabbana’s home country with a pretty flower-shaped lid made to portray marzipan sculptures seen it traditional Sicilian confectioners. The bottle is reminiscent of vintage perfumes with thick and clear glass and gentle curves. The colour of the fragrance is light green because of neroli leaves and thin black grosgrain ribbon tied in a bow is a very elegant touch. The stylish ribbon matches black script which is a replica of Domenico Dolce’s father’s own signature. The perfume box is worth mentioning too because it is perfectly smooth and beautifully designed and the fragrance is also available in the form of luxury perfumed shower gel and body lotion packed in chic white bottles with black caps.
