“ Brand: Dolce & Gabbana / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Parfum / Gender: for women „
I hvae tried all the Dolce & Gabbana Perfumes as I would say the brand is 1 of my favourite. 2 of their scents sit solidly in my top 10 of Perfumes - Light Blue and Feminine and this was the first designer brand of Perfume I tried all those years ago. So how did this one match up?
I bought myself this bottle - so no Birthday or Christmas present unfortunately. I got this in a 50ml bottle and bought it online for £28.99. Not sure if it is available in any other size, but since I wasn't sure if I would like this or not then the 50ml was more than enough to find out.
The bottle looks like the Dooyoo picture. I'm not so keen on it to be honest. Such a dark colour. Athough it is eye catching it just looks a bit boring in my view. Then again it's what's inside that counts.
So how does this smell? Well the notes that are in here are Freesia, Sweet Basil. Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Ivy, Sandalwood, Coriander and Vanilla. So a good mixture of notes in here. I was thinking that this would have too much of a "green" scent to it with the Ivy and Basil, but although there is a Leafy kind of scent in here you can still smell the slight dash of Vanilla and the Jasmine seems to stand out as well.
This lasts well as well, which I find that this brand does anyway. I spray 2 squirts of this in the morning instead of my usual 3 and I can still smell this faintly after lunch. The scent settles down into a nice Richness and although i wouldn't say it is exactly the kind of scent I go for with it being a slightly heavier scent it is still a nice change to the usual scents that I get.
It is a nice scent and I would recommend this. I may be harsh saying I wouldn't buy it again, but it is a nice scent, just that there is more Perfumes that I like more than this one.
Dolce & Gabbana: By Femme, Eau de Parfum
My daughter bought me this Eau de Parfum for my birthday at the begining of the year, I was very happy to get it too as I like perfum which is light and doesn't over power the room when you wear it. having recieved the present a few months ago I thought that it would be alright to look up the price as its a bit rude asking how much did you pay for it when you recieve a present, I was surprised to see that the price is quite expensive for the 50ml bottle that you get, it was £32.
The eua de parfume comes in a nice little glass bottle with a brown patterned box, I love the look of perfume bottles as they have a luxurious aura about them if you know what I mean. Mind you if your a man you might not know what i'm talking about. Its a woman thing, the feel of the perfume bottle and the style of it goes a long way in the plus side of purchasing a bottle of perfume.
The spray is light and gentle and doesn't let a large jet out all at once like some prays you get, this is good as you just get a small amount of the perfume where you want it not an over powering amount to knock people over. I'm very fussy about the perfume I use as I have a sensative nose and any cheap perfume will make my nose run.
Also if someone passes me in the street or sits by me on a bus and has too much perfume on it will make me sneeze and my nose will run, so a light perfume has to be found for me if my family are buying me a present.
This eau de parfum is not over powering and the orange blossom, sweet basil, ivy, freesia, jasmine, vanilla, sandalwood and coriander, compliment each other perfectly to leave a very subtle fresh scent that lingers all day. It's a light scent which you just keep getting wiffs of as your going about your daily business, not the kind of perfume which hangs in the air when you have gone from the room. I hate those kind they remind me of old aunts that used to visit over christmas when you were a child, you can't quite remember what the aunt was like but her perfume lingered all your life in your memory, lol.
Dolce & Gabbana: By Femme, Eau de Parfum is one of my favourites and I can recommend it to you, if your looking for a light delicate scent you can find it on Ebay cheaper than £32 but you will be bidding for it and its pot luck whether you will win it at a low price, or you can go to the Dolce & Gabbana website and look it up to pay the full price. Whatever you do you will be getting a high quality eau de parfum which will please your sence of smell.
Have fun x
