Dolce, My Darling.....


Before Christmas:
I went looking for Dolce.
Wasn't there.

January:
I went looking for Dolce.
Wasn't there.

Valentine's Day:
I went looking for Dolce.
Wasn't there.
I walked away.....
Before impulsively taking Nina home.

20.03.15:
I didn't go looking for Dolce.
Dolce was not on my mind.
Then I turned around.....
Dolce was standing like a giant by the door.***

I have daydreamed about holding Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana for months & months.And.Now.It's right here! Right here next to my laptop while I'm writing this!
Notes: Neroli Leaves, Papaya Flower, White Amaryllis, White Daffodil, White Water Lily, Cashmeran, Musky Notes, Sandalwood.
Design: Dolce&Gabbana Dolce’s elegant packaging is reminiscent of a vintage fragrance flacon. Thick, clear glass with softly curved lines lending a contemporary design edge. The flower stopper pays tribute to Sicilian customs, crafted to portray the marzipan sculptures seen in traditional Sicilian confectioners. A thin black grosgrain ribbon, presented in an elegant bow, conjures images of the white shirts and bow-ties that were a signature of early Dolce&Gabbana catwalk shows. The final, and most personal, touch: Dolce signed in a flourish of black script, a replica of Domenico Dolce’s father’s own signature.



If you know me, it is clear, that the bottle was what sold me this perfume. It is everything. Very well-made. Nothing plasticky about that flower, in case you're wondering. The bow is also perfectly looped & stitched. So vintage & modern at the same time.

Now let's talk below the bow ~  It makes me so so glad that the fragrance is my kind of scent as well. It's a light fruity-floral scent, which is best suited for spring & summer. Very Marc Jacobsy, but it's more musky. It doesn't have the WOW factor to be memorable, but it is likeable.


Price: Rs.3850/30 ml

Available at Lifestyle

Can you imagine my face when I turned around and saw that poster? (Just noticed that photo bomber outside...haha!)
 The makeup browsing was a tad boring until that moment.

I became a mix of delirium & fear.

"Dolce. Dolce. That.Is that launched? Where's Dolce & Gabbana?"

I said to no one in particular in the fragrance area.

If it wasn't there, I know I'd feel.... sort of abandoned.

By it was.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
