Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana review

Ok lads, I think it's happening.  I think spring is springing because we've had a few days where we've seen blue skies and I'm telling you, I must be solar powered because I've had a pep in my step and feel that warmer and brighter days are coming.

On gorgeous spring days, I'm obsessed with light, airy fragrances.  I want to embrace all things floral, especially white florals.  Enter Dolce by Dolce & Gabana.  Lads, this is true love.  Or should I say True Love.

Can we just take a moment and look at the bottle and more specifically, the lid?  It's made to portray the marzipan sculptures seen in traditional Sicilian confectioners and really is a piece of art.  I thought it was made of plastic the first time I saw it but it feels like hard resin, so no worries about it going all grotty.

But the scent.... Oh it's spring time perfume-ified.  It's feminine, fresh, slightly sweet for the first few minutes thanks to the neroli leaves and papaya flower, but once that fades, the white florals come into their own and just lifts everything.  I don't get much of the musky base notes but I'm ok with that because it gives me plenty of the delicate and gorgeous white amaryllis, white daffodil and white water lily which elevates my mood and spirit like nothing else!

When I sprayed Dolce by Dolce & Gabana on myself for the first time on a bright, sunny, blue skied Wednesday morning, I had to take a moment because it was all too much for me.  The universe had made it so that I smelled gorgeous on a beautiful morning.  And it's times like these I feel a bit bad for my coworkers because when I love something as much as this, I make them all put it on whether they want to or not.  Nine times out of ten, they love it but yes, I make everyone try it as they came to visit me in the office.  They love it.  Phew.

Usually when I love a fragrance this much, I keep it at home rather than in The Drawer at work, but I love it so much, that I want everyone to smell like this.  This scent genuinely puts me in good form as soon as I spray it and has shot to the top of my favourite spring time perfume hands down.  It lasts a good three hours or so before I need to apply it again and it's completely the reason I've been in a great mood for the last week!  If you meet me anytime soon, I'll have this in my bag so please make sure I give you a spritz or seven because you need to smell this.


Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana will be available nationwide from March 6th and I urge you to go smell it.  Prices start at €62 for 30mls.

If you have a nose and wrists, you need to try this.


  1. Yes, I will take a moment to look at the bottle....make that six moments! That bottle must be the prettiest bottle I have ever seen!

  2. Oh, did I say how much I love the bottle? Didn't think so! Ok, gonna get off your website now, promise!
