Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Escape to Panarea pour Femme and Discover Vulcano pour Homme! Xx

 The new Dolce and Gabbana Limited Edition Light Blue fragrances
are named after two of the  
 Aeolian islands - the small pieces of paradise scattered in front of Sicily, 
famed for their incredibly beautiful volcanic landscape:
Escape to Panarea for women and Discover Vulcano for men.

David Gandy and Bianca Balti

Above Sicily and the Aeolian Islands
Panarea is the island of love. Here, summer nights are 
lit by a thousand candles, spent on terraces overlooking
 the glittering blue waters, with the feeling that you are suspended in time,
 between the sea and the stars.”  Stefano Gabbana.

Escape to Panarea is a woody-musky fragrance with top notes 
of Calabrian Bergamot and Pear, 
with contrasting heart notes of nocturnal Jasmine 
and Orange blossoms.
The base notes are an accord of Ambergris, 
Patchouli, Tonka Beans and Warm Musk.

When you walk on the crater of Vulcano, 
you feel the power of nature and its pulsating and profound intensity, 
even though it is dormant for now. It is not just a vacation 
on a breathtakingly beautiful island, but a journey full 
of great discoveries.” Domenico Dolce.

Mediterranean and masculine, Discover Vulcano is a mediterranean
and woody-chypre fragrance.  It has intense top notes of 
Italian Lemon and Ginger, with heart note of Cypress and Lavender.
The Base notes are a harmonious blend Haitian Vetiver, Cedar Wood, 
and the musky-amber scent of Ambro.
