Fragrance Find - Dolce + Gabbana Dolce Eau de Parfum

Looking back over the last few years, Dolce + Gabbana have created some of the most chic-yet-sexy fragrances from a fashion designer label.

Now they're looking in a slightly different direction, still in the sensual zone of Sicilian influences like their Pour Femme and The One fragrances, but Dolce, has a lighter, romantic touch and an "airier" feel.

The bottle has a very luxe, feminine shape with it's hefty glass. And the bow-tie detail with the floral cap is very pretty - and vanity worthy.  This is a scent centered around a white floral, the South African White Amaryllis, with touches of citrus and fresh green notes.

It's opening is bright, fresh and floral with a perfect mix of orange and the mildly green Neroli leaves.  It became a bit more fruity on my skin with the next few minutes, and then, pleasantly, after about 15 min or so, much less sweet overall, and more of a drier and slightly powdery soft floral.  The dry down after several hours, remained soft and a bit more musky, but all in all still very light.

The lasting power is quite good (over 6 hours for me on average) and the silage is fairly subtle, so you won't "wake up the room" when you walk in wearing this.  Dolce is perfectly appropriate for the office, weekend brunch/church, or for an outdoor party, for example.

If you're looking for a new spring fragrance or spring beauty gift, or like scents that are lighter than Dolce's recent fragrances, this is the perfect one! - RLB
