Dolce Garden by Dolce Gabbana

Dolce Garden by Dolce Gabbana

One of Dolce & Gabbana’s newest perfumes for 2018 is Dolce Garden, and it’s the focus of our third edition of The Perfume Times.

Dolce Garden is the third flanker in the Dolce series. It is preceded by the original Dolce (2014), Dolce Floral Drops (2015), and Dolce Rosa Excelsa (2016). As each of the others, Dolce Garden takes its inspiration from the vibrancy of Sicily but also introduces a new, fun and energetic emotion that allows your spirit to run free.

Dolce Garden by Dolce Gabbana Review

Bottle

The bottle is a soft pink and clear, translucent, an unfrosted container with a pink, floral cap and an adorable black, ribbon-tied bow to dress it up. It’s simple, classy, and tailored, just like the woman who wears it will present herself. Near the bottom “garden” is written in green to describe its natural base. It is available in 1.0 ounce (30mL), 1.7 ounce (50mL) or 2.5 ounce (75mL) bottles.

Packaging

The box is as similar to the bottle to be consistent with the series. Mostly pastel pink and displaying the signature Dolce black bow accent.

Colors

Pink evokes feminine and playful; black represents elegance; green associates with vegetation, as a garden’s dominant color.

Quality

Eau de Parfum (EDP)

Notes

Continuing the foundation of the Dolce series, the top notes begin with white flowers. Additionally, there are juicy mandarin (fruity) and Magnolia (sweet) in the opening. Heart notes are coconut and frangipani blossoming petals. Finally, almond milk, vanilla, and sandalwood comprise of the base notes.

In conclusion, when one smells this, the feeling is pleasantly captivating. You recognize the fresh flowers and feel relaxed, but at the same time, you feel the need to be active and playful. It’s a great daytime, weekend, or change of pace fragrance. Wear it on your day off, be carefree and let your guard down! It won’t be your signature scent, but instead, it’s there all summer long to inspire you.

Good Girl by Carolina Herrera Perfume Review

Good Girl by Carolina Herrera

In our inaugural blog, we promised our commitment to perfume reviews, updates, and new releases. This first fragrance review has them all. We shared,

“An instant hit that was launched in 2016. It portrays a seductive scent, yet offers a sensual and softer feminine vibe. In a gorgeous, classy bottle (that is not even a bottle) that is coveted by women, yet intimidating to men, the face of the fragrance is Karlie Kloss.”

So, which fragrance is it? Good Girl by Carolina Herrera! Yes, this fragrance is soft, yet powerfully seductive. Ladies, you will get awe-inspiring attention from your girlfriends, as well as distracted, complimentary attention from the men.

Bottle

The bottle is a black and gold stiletto that is masterfully designed. Just as walking in a room, with each step you display confidence and femininity, so, too, does this bottle evoke all that a modern woman wants style, class, and independence. Most commonly found in a 2.7 ounce (80mL) or a 1.7 ounce (50mL) bottle.

Packaging

The slogan,

“It’s Good to Be Bad”

It is adorned on the front of the box, also featured in black and gold, and white.

Colors

Black represents mystery and elegance, while gold depicts wealth and glamour.

Quality

Eau de Parfum (EDP)

Notes

Top notes are primarily almond and coffee; heart notes are jasmine and tuberose; base notes are tonka bean and cocoa. A perfect mix of light and dark notes, the fragrance exposes the duality of a women’s personality.

Flankers

This fragrance also has four flankers:

  • Good Girl Glitter Collector (2017)
  • Good Girl Swarovski (2017)
  • Good Girl Velvet Fatale (2018)
  • Good Girl Legere (2018), most recently released

Face

Karlie Kloss grabs you with her elegant, mysterious, confident, and seductive look. Walking down the city street, her long-legged stature of over 6’ in a very becoming side-split, black evening dress, and her flowing blonde hair leads up to the focus of her powerful stride…black stiletto heels. A city girl (born in Chicago and raised in the St. Louis area), she now graces her beauty between the cities of L.A. and NYC.

Ladies, this is a must-have fragrance for your collection. Not only does it have a beautiful scent, it “feels” empowering and sensual. And, the bottle alone makes one think of femininity. Available at most department and perfume stores nationwide, find your stride to try the Good Girl Collection.
