Learn your scents with Dolce & Gabbana


Anyone who saw BBC Four’s recent and diverting series on both the history and intricacies of the fragrance industry will be fully schooled in the world of top notes, middle notes and base notes and the bewildering array of fragrance classifications.

What’s really needed, though, is some practical application of those new-
found skills. And, as luck would have it, the latest fragrance collection from 
Dolce & Gabbana is ideal for testing out your burgeoning olfactory knowledge.

A sturdy, imagination-capturing theme is the key to the success of a fledgling scent, and Dolce & Gabbana has effectively elected to cloak its latest offerings, priced £120 for 50ml, in the notion of velvet. That sumptuous, opulent, velvety velvet. You know: velvet.

There’s also an emphasis on the individuality of the wearer. With six to choose from — Velvet Wood, Velvet Patchouli, Velvet Vetiver, Velvet Desire, Velvet Love and Velvet Sublime — each scent is tailored to your individual needs. For example, it’s claimed that Velvet Patchouli enhances your ‘musky presence’ — and that can only be a good thing.
