Dolce & Gabbana launched a new women perfume – Dolce, a delicate and very feminine floral scent – presented in a touching and beautiful bottle. The fragrance opens with a brightly-coloured, sweet-smelling explosion of Neroli leaves and Papaya flower, dissipating into a floral bouquet as the core of the fragrance emerges. At heart there is an unique and opulent combination of White Water Lily and bold White Daffodil blend perfectly with the full-bodied White Amaryllis, a South African flower used for the first time ever in scent by Dolce & Gabbana. The delicate flower White Amaryllis grows solely in the Fynbos region of South Africa and has a rich and generous odour, where other white Amaryllis found elsewhere do not. The name originates from the Greek word “amarysso”, meaning: “I give light”. It has wide, trumpet blooms. The buds grow at different speeds so each will have a different intensity of scent. Dolce blends this into a fragrance for the very first time.
The line is enriched by two other products – Dolce Perfumed Shower Gel and Dolce Body Lotion.
For the testimonial of the ‘Dolce’ perfume, Dolce & Gabbana chose the 20 years old Canadian model – Kate King. The photographer of the campaign was Domenico Dolce himself working with Stefano Gabbana as Creative Director. “Dolce is a contemporary fragrance inspired by a memory. The originality is not just in the way it was created, but also because it is the translation into fragrance of a young new love that will, by virtue of its innocence, retain its youthful vitality,” says Stefano Gabbana.
“Kate’s penetrating eyes are highly-charged, yet tender and innocent too, and in her gaze you see the spirit of Sicilian girls, the character of Angelica from The Leopard, whose candour and modern style managed to shake up Tancredi’s ancient world,” say Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
