Dolce&Gabbana have launched a series of six haute parfumerie scents this season- the Velvet Collection. These exclusive and highly luxurious olfactory treats are a lovely Christmas gift.
The Dolce&Gabbana scent family welcomes six new members- the Velvet Collection. Born of a the inspirations, moods and favourite scents of Mr Dolce and Mr Gabbana, the Velvet collection completes the successful perfume ventures of the Dolce&Gabbana brand. These six expertly balanced scents provide a journey into the olfactory memories of the design duo as well as translating their style credentials into essences. Is there a better gift that pure glamour, luxury, Sicily and memories in a bottle?
Velvet: sumptuous, smooth, a luxurious cloak to envelop your senses. The Velvet collection scents reflect the qualities of the fabrics. The texture of the fabric, its emblematic feel under your hands is represented the by scent’s iconic essences, yet the smoothness and delicacy also associated to velvet is mirrored by the perfumes’ refined overtones.
The scents are a masterful mix of amber, citrus, floral, woody and spiced essences which recreate the Mediterranean mood. There is no clear gender distinction between the scents, though it is safe to say that Vetiver, Wood and Patchouli are more masculine, while Desire, Love and Sublime are suited to women.
The Velvet collection perfumes are not only fantastically rich perfumes, but the packaging also reflects the luxury and rotundity of the scents.
The clean, stream line bottles, lend a sense of the serious perfume, no gimmicks needed to entice the client or to complete the sense of the brand. The velvety caps, of course are a reminder of the luxurious texture of the fabric from which the inspiration was born.
The Velvet collection consists of the following six fragrances in the corresponding colours: Inky black for Velvet Patchouli, emerald green for Velvet Vetiver, dark bronze for Velvet Wood, deep red for Velvet Desire, palest rose for Velvet Love and royal purple for Velvet Sublime.
The velvet presentation box with its clean lines and gold plaque bearing the name of the scent make a Velvet Collection perfume a stand out Christmas gift.
The Velvet Collection fragrances (€170 each) are available at selected boutiques worldwide.
