This spring Dolce&Gabbana introduce Desire, the newest scent to join their hugely successful fragrance line The One. The feminine perfume is a bold edition, combining a light freshness with interjections of rich opulent notes.
Created with a powerful woman in mind, who is unafraid to embrace her emotions, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana play with the notions of desire using Scarlett Johnson as the embodinement of the desirable woman to front their campaign. When asked why they chose to focus on such a powerful feeling they described, “Everything starts with desire. There wouldn’t be seduction, sensuality or passion if it wasn’t for desire. For us, its always been fundamental to let this sensation go, to break the mold and live freely by emotions”.
Desirable this perfume most certainly is. With a bouquet of intoxicating, intense oriental floral notes Desire perfectly compliments The One fragrances it proceeds but takes on a lighter, more refreshing tone. Top notes of lychee, mandarin and bergamont and the soft flavours of lily of the valley are paired with a core of feminine florals: Madonna lily, Indian tuberose and jasmine. Add in the sweet flavours of plum nectar with rich base notes of vanilla infused with caramel, warm sandalwood, musk and Cistus Labdanum and the result is a heady intoxicating fragrance.
Staying true to their in house style Desire is packaged in a luxurious black and gold bottle. Inscribed with Stefano Gabbana’s elegant writing and a thick black gemstone that sits luxuriously upon the cap Desire is sure to have a multitude of women lusting after it.
Desire is available now in Harrods.
