Kate King in Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana perfume campaign
I think, I will be going new perfume shopping soon. It feels really odd to admit because I have been faithful to the same fragrance for almost seven years now and being curious about something else feels almost like cheating. Not only that, the perfume I am interested in, is, in fact, the new Dolce&Gabbana scent, Dolce, that was released very recently.

Why did I suddenly think of it after many years of consciously avoiding any designer fragrances? At first it was the story of the scent itself, the notes of neroli and water lily that I am always drawn to combined with warm spices and white amaryllis flower that has never been used in perfumes before. They say, the perfumers used a new technology that helped to capture the very essence of the floral scent without having to cut the flower... I like little details like that.

At one point it went through my mind that the meaning of the word "amaryllis", "I give light", is very similar to the Italian "dare alla luce" or "to give to the light". It's almost as if the perfume carrying the essence of the flower was born, like a new baby...

I loved the bottle, too. I could easily picture the smooth clear glass flacon topped with a flower shaped stopper inspired by Sicilian marzipan sweets and finished off with a grosgrain black ribbon, on my bedside table, next to a small bouquet of white roses and a candle, fitting into the white, green and black colour-scheme of the room that I call my happy place, my sanctuary.

The beautiful and romantic campaign starring Kate King was directed by the designers themselves and photographed by Domenico Dolce in a stately home lavishly decorated with bunches of white jasmine, roses, lillies and tulips...

Everything about this perfume feels wonderful,  youthful, feminine, almost as if it's not just the scent, but  the very first embrace of spring or a kind of magical elixir created to make our life a little bit more beautiful.


Dolce is available in 50 and 75ml bottles and sold exclusively at Harrods and Saks Fifth Avenue.

  8. You know, I usually love to change my fragrances, have tried and used many even though my fav ever is always L'Instant de Guerlain.

  10. I heard about this and I'm curious to smell itl!! It's so crazy that you always use the same perfume, I know other people who do that too but I just like to change it all the time (I always buy the smalles bottle so I can change a lot haha). Except for Ange ou Démon from Givenchy and Flowerbomb by V&R, those are in my 'permanent collection' because it are my two favourite scents! And I imagine you have to spend a lot on perfume when you say you don't buy the 'regular designer bottles'... I heard about custom made perfume once but it was like €600 for a bottle so not really my budget haha! Enjoy your Saturday darling! xx

  15. I find it so easy to be entranced by a beautiful perfume bottle, even when the scent isn't one that would neccessarily appeal to me - and floral scents have never been my thing. Despite that, I love the idea of having this beautiful bottle on my nightstand, and can see what you do, too.
    xox,
