I always like Dolce & Gabbana fragrances and also Gucci fragrances (same parent company – Proctor & Gamble) so it’s happy times when a new one appears. Dolce Floral Drops is sweet florals with a fresh kick that’s exactly the kind of wearable fragrance that I love.
You need to ignore the box in the background – that’s not how it comes to the consumer (sadly, because that is some gorgeous packaging). Floral Drops is the younger, fresher version of the existing Dolce which has the same beautiful floral lid which is part of the pleasure of fragrance – you’re drawn in immediately to the whole floral concept with your eyes and what happens in your nose follows second.
Great name – Floral Drops – I think it’s supposed to give the impression of first flowers on a dewy morning. The juice is dominated by white flowers – daffodils, waterlily and amaryllis (there might be a pink one in there – who’s to know? I certainly couldn’t tell) with the freshness brought by Neroli leaves. Base-wise, it’s cashmere, musk and sandalwood but they’re light as air.
Dolce Floral Drops is airy and fresh – it’s floral-lite, if you like, and beautiful for spring but if there is one weakness, it’s in the last. You’ll need to reapply. Personally, I think it’s gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, but if you like a more fulsome bloom it’s not for you and you’d be better off with the existing Dolce HERE.
Dolce Floral Drops launches tomorrow at Boots.com and then nationwide from March with prices starting at £40.
