La Force 11 description

Dolce & Gabbana’s La Force 11 is an oriental fragrance included in their Anthology series of perfumes, which are all named after Major Arcana cards from the Tarot. La Force (or Strength, in English) is a card depicting a brave, quiet woman taming a ferocious lion by massaging its face and petting its head. The symbolism evokes inner peace and emotional strength overcoming our animalistic, angry, ego-driven selves.

The composition of this perfume marries the symbolism of the Tarot to the notes in the fragrance in an empathetic, warm, and enveloping way. The top notes of cardamom, cinnamon and allspice feature warm spices vs. hot, sharp, peppery nuances. The intense scent personalities of the cinnamon and allspice could easily transform into a young girl stoically facing off against an angry, proud lion.

The heart contains nutmeg, heliotrope, and cypress. The middle of La Force 11 sets up a confrontation between the chilly cold of the cypress note and the sweet, almond warmth of heliotrope. The dry, soft bite of nutmeg flashes back and forth, alternately taming the cypress and firming up the heliotrope. The heart is where the snarling lion turns from being a cold-blooded predator into a calm and proper King of the Jungle. The heliotrope’s fairy tale floral shows the lion affection instead of fear, and the soft, plush nutmeg spice is the trust in his answer.

The dry down of vanilla, sandalwood and caraway is the final truth of the new friendship that exists between the brave young girl and her lion. The vanilla and sandalwood notes amplify the sweet almond in the heart, and the caraway’s sharp peppery spice is just a grace note lurking behind the gourmand base. The carefree sweetness wins out over the ferocious spice attack in La Force 11, but there’s still enough hidden danger left in this perfume for your wild side to explore.

Dolce & Gabbana’s La Force 11 will have no trouble appealing to Oriental fragrance fans, and the ongoing battle between the sweeter notes versus spicy, spiky heat is unique and fun.

A man or a woman can wear this perfume, whether you choose to be the lion or the brave soul who tames it. La Force 11 radiates an elegant inner strength that will loyally serve any master.

I liked it, not loved it. I liked it because its not overpowering. I didn't love it because its sweet smelling - like baby powder sweet. I think its a great scent for social occasions because it is subtle, but not a "this is my scent" for daily use, if that makes sense.

I decided to change my previous review because I can actually smell it now, but only if I use a ton of it! I've only had it for a few days and I've had to use so much just to be able to smell it that it's almost gone! However, 3 stars because I have received many compliments that I smell good, even from strangers. I personally do not like the fragrance and it has no staying power and it really is a skin scent unless you layer on A LOT, but others seem to like it so it's not horrible. It smells fresh, clean, and a bit soapy.

I was looking forward to trying this as my first Scentbird perfume because it has all the fragrance notes I usually love, however, this doesn't smell like anything at all! I sprayed it in the air, I sprayed it on paper, I sprayed it on myself...nothing. All I smelled was a very light, split second musk and then it was gone. I'm really not sure if it's because I usually purchase eau de parfum as opposed to eau de toilette or if the fragrance is watered down when it is rebottled?? Based on the other mostly good reviews for this fragrance, I'm thinking maybe I received a dud, if not, then I don't recommend this fragrance. Fingers crossed that my next selection is better!

Nice, closer to something I would wear but still very sweet. So far, all three scents I have gotten are a bit too sweet. I have tried to find something more oriental, spicy, woody. Even when they list it as that, they are overwhelmingly sweet. This one is overpowering when you first put it on, but doesn't last, so....

I'd smelled this perfume before and remembered I liked it but couldn't remember what it smelled like. When I received it this month, I remembered why I liked it. It's almost like a unisex fragrance so it's a bit on the masculine side but not so much so a woman can't wear it. Glad I picked it this month!

This scent is right up my alley! I love spices, woods and amber notes. It's perfect but not a perfume for women who like super sweet, candy like fragrances. This is a woman's fragrance that leans heavily on the masculine side so if you are not into these notes then you may not like this one. I love men's fragrances and this one is feminine enough to be unisex. Don't fully judge it until it settles on your skin completely, although everyone's chemistry is unique, this one is lovely. Great fall fragrance!

It has something in it that reminded me of YSL Pour Homme and Calvin Klein Euphoria for Men (weird, right?), of CK Be and Gap Om, and then of Armani Code and Burberry Brit EDT for women. Can wear to the office or drinks/dinner.

This is my new signature scent. Unisex, spicy, warm, and invigorating. I love how this works with my chemistry. I was afraid the vanilla would overpower the other notes but that is not the case. It works well with the other notes and I can pick out each one. The silage is perfect and I get many compliments. One spritz lasts nearly all day with the scent lingering on my clothes days later. Absolutely my perfect scent and one I've searched a long time for.
