As I write this review, a late fall chilly hurricane is upon my area....
But I feel as warm as sunshine with the new Dolce + Gabbana Pour Femme spritzed and sprayed around me today.
The newly relaunched Pour Femme scent went through a bit of a "fine-tuning" with direction from Dolce and Gabbana. The floral notes are now blended with sweeter notes. It's still light and not simplistically "candy-like", rather it's very warm and pretty.
There's still a sense of Italian luxury to it, starting with the velvet burgundy colored outer box, and the thick, beautifully cut glass bottle with a complementing burgundy and gold cap.
On my skin, the fruity raspberry and tangerine notes were the most prominent at the opening spritz, but after a few minutes, the florals began to come in, along with the marshmallow, and it remained a very soft, warm and sophisticated scent.
With the dry down there's more of a crisp, clean edge to it, as the fruity notes wear down. It ends a bit spicy, powdery and woodsy - and very sexy. The staying power on my skin was very good. I could still smell a great deal in the late evening after applying early in the morning.
I loved this for a night time scent, so I would often reapply again before going back out. For Fall/Winter this will work both during the day (when you want to feel that "warm, cosy" feeling) and for special occasions, and date nights when you want a sexy, and slightly exotic air about you. - RLB
