Spring Fragrance // Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme review



The change of seasons usually brings about changes in my style.  I love trading in my winter wardrobe for all my spring essentials and vice versa for each season.  One thing that doesn't change too much with me are perfumes and fragrances.  The thing is I don't like the typical spring scents--my nose is sensitive to floral and fruity fragrances seem to young.  I tend to gravitate towards woodsy, ambers or nutty and earthy notes.  Truth be told, for a beauty hoarder, perfumes are not something I have an abundance of.  In fact, I avoid the perfume section at Sephora because it leaves me with a headache (same applies to any Abercrombie & Fitch store)  It's very rare that I would write a blog post to tell you that I love a new perfume.

And I love this new perfume.  I'll even go as far as to say this is what I want to wear on my wedding day.


                             

This is so unlike anything I would normally go for.  Essentially, it has everything I just mentioned I didn't like but for some odd reason, I can't get enough of it.  It's feminine but not in a old lady kind of way.  It's a bit floral, but nothing overpowering.  To me, it smells sweet and sugary and then I get the hint of something citrus.  The vanilla note always lingers the longest in the end.


Notes:

Neroli, Raspberry, Green Mandarin, Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Guimauve, Vanilla, Heliotrope, Sandalwood

I won't go on and on, trying to describe the scent because it's almost impossible to convey.  But if you're like me and can never find a scent that agrees with your sensitive note, give this one a sniff next time you're out shopping and let me know what you think of it.




It's a bit on the pricey side ($71 for 0.8 oz), but I think that the packaging reflects that it is a luxury item.  The clear glass bottle shows a faint pink liquid inside and the cap is deep pink pull off.  The box was always really luxe--a beautiful velvet with gold letterpress.  It's also available in rollerball and a larger size as well.

PS--Sephora is offering 3X the points on any fragrance purchase now through May 10th (no promo code needed).
