Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Collection - introducing Velvet Rose and Velvet Bergamot for Summer! Xx

Sparkle Style are loving the new fragrances that have been added to the
 Dolce and Gabbana Velvet Collection 

A Great Addition to our Dolce and Gabbana Fragrance Collection:
Above from L to R Velvet Tender OUD , Velvet Rose, Dolce and Velvet Bergamot


As usual the bottles are square crystal 
with golden labels and velvet caps.
They are inspired by  
the intense sensorial pleasure of the Mediterranean summer, 
as remembered and imagined 
by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.


Above Velvet Rose and Velvet Bergamot
come in the most beautiful black velvet boxes
with satin interiors.

Velvet Rose and Velvet Bergamot arouse the mood 
of a private Mediterranean garden, nourished by 
the sun and refreshed by a warm sea breeze. 
Here, nature’s contrasts are at their most tantalising: 
intoxicating intensity balanced with softness and light.

 Velvet Rose is the Designers’ homage to the Mediterranean rose.


 “In history and in nature, the nobility of the rose is unsurpassed.”
– Domenico Dolce

This is a soft rosy fragrance with top notes of three beautiful
vintage roses
- Rich Moroccan Rose absolute, pure and airy Bulgarian Rose 
essence and light and crisp Rose Centifolia accord,
 featuring Rose de Mai absolute.
The heart notes are Salomon Lily accord, 
and hints of Egyptian Geranium.
The base notes are
 Musk Velvione.




“In complexity lies perfection.” 
– Stefano Gabbana

Complex and bitter the Amaro fragrance
is very Citrusy has two types of Bergamot enriched with 
cassis bud absolute.
The heart notes are very fresh Clary Sage, 
Eau de Brouts Absolute from the orange flower
and petitgrain leaves.
Base notes are Vetiver and  Ambrette seed

  1. Historically, many thought ebony wood would be an anecdote for poisons that might exist within. It was even used for the handles of Samurai swords, to offer greater power to the bearer.
