Amongst my favorite fragrances are : Paco Rabanne - One Million, Chanel Mademoiselle, Prada Candy, Gucci Flora but today I want to talk to you about my latest favorite perfume: Dolce & Gabbana Desire.
The official description:Top notes: mandarin, lychee, bergamot, lily of the valley
The Dolce&Gabbana woman lives by her powerful emotions. Confident, she lets desire take over. She sumptuously wraps herself in desire as a natural instinct rising up from her very soul. Desire by Dolce&Gabbana crowns The One fragrance chapter with an expression of the essence of the Dolce&Gabbana woman in scent.
"Everything starts with desire. There wouldn’t be seduction, sensuality or passion if it wasn’t for desire. For us, it’s always been fundamental to let this sensation go, to break the mould and live freely by emotions."
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana
Heart notes: Madonna lily, Indian tuberose, Jasmin, sweet plum nectar
Base notes: vanilla, caramel, sandalwood, musk, Citus Labdanum.
The design is simple with only two colors: black and gold, but the best colors to express luxury.The black bottle is inscribed with Stefano Gabanna's handwritting of "Desire" in gold letters.
Scarlett Johansson stars in the ad for this perfume too, continuing the "The One" series.
"Scarlett was a natural choice for us. Not only for her beauty, which is well known, but for her ability to interpret the many sides of our woman."Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

I like better floral, oriental scents and this new perfume from D&G suits me perfectly. You can first feel a fruity smell, more exactly the mandarin, then comes the floral scent, I'm guessing it's the Indian tuberose and you're left in the end with a sweet vanilla caramel note.The heart notes of Indian tuberose mixed with vanilla and caramel makes it a sweet fragrances, but not with a cheap smell.
If you've tried it yet let me know what you think and what are your favorite perfumes.
