Italian fashion house of Dolce & Gabbana presents Velvet Collection that compromises six authentic fragrances. Velvet Collection was created as a ‘tribute to the designers’ sartorial heritage and their natural ability to pinpoint the essence of Mediterranean indulgence.’ The six perfumes that make the Velvet Collection include Velvet Sublime, Velvet Love, Velvet Desire, Velvet Wood, Velvet Vetiver, and Velvet Patchouli. These perfumes inspire that sweetness can be found anywhere and can be easily tasted and enjoyed.
Velvet Sublime is inspired by the orange groves of Sicily. “Velvet Sublime radiates a sun-warmed effect with a splash of Sicilian mandarin. Joyful orange blossom and neroli reveal their crisp, dewy petals.”
Velvet Love is inspired by the carnations of Lake Como. “This fragrance’s redolent carnation flowers envelop oriental notes, giving in to an exhilarating rush of ylang ylang and pepper.”
Velvet Desire is inspired by the Renaissance period. “This fragrance’s fulsome white flowers provoke an explosion of gardenia and intoxicating tuberose, whilst a hint of frangipani offers a sophisticated flourish.”
Velvet Vetiver is inspired by the scent of the Mediterranean Summer. “Vetiver: a tantalizing scent replete with elegance and classic perfection. I wore it as a boy to feel as an adult.” Domenico Dolce. This fragrance has a classic, sumptuous cologne effect of vetiver and galbanum blended with a contemporary pique of Mediterranean fig.”
Velvet Wood is inspired by lacquered wood. “This rich ebony wood fragrance offers profound depth, with warm resinous notes yielding to attractive benzoin and refined black leather scents.”
Velvet Patchouli is inspired by the iconic incense. “Patchouli: the first fragrance I felt really belonged to me. It became my statement scent.” Stefano Gabbana. Velvet Patchouli is an intense, luxurious patchouli oil drenched with kephalis that cedes to a rich, musky presence.”
Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Collection fragrances are available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum for £120 each.
