Dolce, from Dolce & Gabbana, is a sweet, tropical white floral perfect for warm weather, or anytime you need a few drops of exotic floral energy to energize you during the day.
It starts off with top notes of neroli leaves and papaya blossom, for a juicy and bright beginning. The neroli leaves and papaya blossom fill in what the other is missing – the neroli keeps the papaya from being too thick and heavy, and the papaya dims the bright neroli note, giving it depth.
What makes the top especially fun is that neroli’s honeyed facet shines against the papayas lush sweetness, and makes the opening a little more complex than just orange-meets-papaya tones.
The heart of Dolce is white amaryllis, narcissus, and water lily. And after the tropical sweetness of the honey-dipped papaya, the florals are so airy and light in Dolce that they take off into the air and fly in lazy circles overhead. Dolce’s heart wooshes into the atmosphere after its hothouse-sweet introduction.
The dry down is a soft blanket of cashmeran and musk, and both add a warm, calming glow to the base of this perfume after the runway takeoff of white florals in the heart.
Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana is an airy, exotic, and smooth perfume that has a little of everything you love in perfume hiding inside it – unusual tropical notes, a full-throated floral heart, and silky-smooth musks in the base that pull it all together nicely.
If you’ve ever seen a child take off running after a clutch of seagulls on the beach, and the birds all flash into the blue sky together, Dolce is the exhilarating scent of that very moment.
