Dolce, The Perfume by Dolce&Gabbana 2014 – A Giuseppe Tornatore film

Hey everyone!

Here is a film made about a fragrance that could, but probably won’t, be a fabulous, daring and beautiful creation. I love the film’s story and how perfect the whole scenario is, even though it’s old and trite there is a small shiver of magic through it.

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Neroli leaf, papaya flower
Heart: White amaryllis, narcissus, white water lily
Base: Cashmere woods, musk

I do hope the fragrance is even nearly worthy of the film,

  1. Oh it sounds just lovely – many of my favorite notes. I see that little shiver of magic, too, Portia. Perhaps more right now because we’re on the tail end of a brutal winter and we’re longing for Spring. I hope the juice lives up to the image!


    • YAY! I’m glad to have company seeing the Shiver Of Magic Shylotus.
      Let’s keep our fingers crosses for a good one/

  2. This caught my eye when I read “papaya flower” in the list of notes. There used to be several papaya trees that grew in an empty lot near our old apartment, and you could practically smell the blossoms from the opposite end of the street, especially at night.


    • Hey there Haefennasiel,
      Papaya has the smell of dying fruit to me, so outrageously naughty and slightly revolting up close but from far it’s beautiful. I have never smelt the flowers.

    • Yes Solanace, we grew up with orange and lemon in the back yard. Mum used to get so much fruit she would invent new salads with them for us. My favourite was small diced orange, grated carrot and mint leaves. SO DELICIOUS with any meat in summer.
