Dolce: the new fragrance that heralds an emotional and sensory journey through the heart of Dolce&Gabbana’s DNA: the noble land of Sicily.
The story of Dolce
Dolce blossoms in the memories of Domenico and Stefano. In the same antique mirror that was hanging in the tailor shop of Domenico’s father in Polizzi Generosa, near Palermo, and that today is in the Designers’ office, the reflections of emotions and traditional values come back to life.
Feminine and fresh, Dolce embodies the delicate balance between timeless craftsmanship and innovation in the art of perfumed composition.
Dolce is one’s personal touch, signature scent. It epitomises the simplicity of a result obtained thanks to a complex process: the same one needed to create a finely- embroidered dress.
Dolce is a gentle, feminine mix of white flowers, introduced by the freshness of the Neroli leaves and defined by the White Amaryllis, a South African flower used for the first time ever in scent. 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.
A unique and opulent combination of White Water Lily and bold White Daffodil blend perfectly with the full-bodied White Amaryllis. This floral signature is counterbalanced by the background of warm Musky notes, along with the complex accents of Cashmeran; leaving a sensual trail of light woods, earthy tones and piquant spices.
Top notes: Neroli leaves, Papaya flower
Heart notes: White Amaryllis, White Daffodil, White Water Lily
Dry down notes: Cashmeran, Musky notes, Sandalwood
Olfactive family: Floral, rich white floral
Dolce&Gabbana Newest Campaign Muse: Kate King
Kate King, a twenty-year-old Canadian model who is fast becoming a recognised face in the Dolce&Gabbana world stars as Dolce’s campaign testimonial, having featured in campaigns for the Designers’ recent ready to wear and jewellery collections. Her wide, almond-shaped hazel eyes and noble features make her the perfect embodiment of the Sicilian values at the heart of the fragrance. Her role in Dolce’s television campaign will be her screen debut.
Introducing Stefano Gabbana as the Creative Director & Advertising Campaign Idea
Underlining his close personal involvement with the project, Domenico Dolce himself shot the print fragrance advertising campaign for Dolce, working alongside Stefano Gabbana as Creative Director:- his first time behind the lens for a Dolce&Gabbana fragrance campaign.
To bring to life the story of Dolce, Domenico and Stefano recreated a garden of white flowers at the wall of a stately Sicilian home. The soft and ethereal background highlights Kate King’s refined beauty, portraying her as a modern-day Angelica – Claudia Cardinale woken from sleep, pure, natural and still dressed in her white petticoat.
