Review of Desire EDP by DOLCE & GABBANA (Sponsored)

Introducing the new DESIRE EDP by DOLCE & GABBANA, a perfume with a bouquet of intense and intoxicating notes to create an opulent and deeply feminine fragrance.


More about Desire by DOLCE & GABBANA

Description: It is a new olfactive statement by Dolce&Gabbana which speaks of femininity and seduction.

Ambassador: Scarlett Johansson

Concept: Desire. Seduction. Strength. It evokes a mysterious world of light and shadows, of temptation and seduction. An intimate, personal sphere in which each woman decides on whom to lay her gaze, a place where the line between instinct and desire is faded and blurred.

The Campaign: Terry Richardson is behind Desire’s compelling advertising campaign.Thanks to his unique photographic style, Terry Richardson has captured Scarlett in a completely new and diverse light. Her sensual, smoky eyes are emphasized with upswept hair and contrast against her bare shoulders and the delicate lace of her dress: in front of her objective, Scarlett transforms into an emblem of desire.

 The Story: The Dolce&Gabbana woman lives by her powerful emotions. Confident, she lets desire take over. She sumptuously wraps herself in desire as a natural instinct rising up from her very soul.

Packaging: It comes with a:

•         Matte gold and black characterize Desire’s flacon and packaging.
•         sophisticated reinterpretation of the classic shape of the bottle for The One collection, the flacon is inscribed with Stefano Gabbana’s elegant handwriting of Desire in gold lettering.


•          The opaque gold hue draws on the opulence of Sicily’s Baroque period, the birthplace of Domenico Dolce.
•         A black gemstone reflecting light from its many facets creates a precious cap.

Notes:

•         Fresh top notes:  mandarin, lychee and bergamot play softly against the sweet innocence of lily of the valley.
•         Middle Note: A trio of ultra feminine florals. The elegance of Madonna lily and the heady opulence of Indian tuberose are blended with velvety jasmine and addictively sweet plum nectar.
•         Base Note: gourmand note of vanilla infused caramel, melded with warming sandalwood, and a touch of mysterious musk and Cistus Labdanum.

Review:
When I first opened up the box, I am already impressed by the classic Design of its elegant bottle. To me, black with Plated Gold cap and inscription just give me the feeling that an mysterious and confident lady such as Scarlett Johansson is on the move. 


And she is like a light in the darkness, glowing in the dark. She is definitely like the description of the story: a lady who wraps herself in desire as a natural instinct rising up from her very soul.

This perfume gives off a sweet yet sensuous scent which is not too over-powering and spicy. Somehow, I am able to accept this unique perfume and have started to like its floral essence though. It is definitely one of my favourite perfumes at the moment as I learn to appreciate its exquisite combination of fresh and mysterious fragrance.
