If we’re giving out Beautiful Bottle awards, Dolce & Gabbana, take your gong! Their floral lid concept takes this fragrance next level on looks. It’s a floral gourmande fragrance, meaning that you get a heavy dose of cake-y sweetness thanks to vanilla, coconut and almond.
In terms of the flowery notes – it’s predominantly magnolia with neroli but wrapped in ylang ylang, frangipani and mandarin. If you’re drawn to gourmandes, this is definitely a box ticker but I noticed that after the initial vanilla blast, the next notes to really come through are the ylang ylang and frangipani which are beautiful. I would love to smell this with the vanilla taken out – for me it’s way too foodie and perhaps because of the name, I was expecting something much fresher and crisper. It’s £80 HERE. The eye palette of the same name that I blogged about earlier in the week (HERE), I have not stopped wearing! I’ve genuinely worn it every day for a week… it’s HERE.

That is a gorgeous bottle, I love the flower in particular.
I purchased Garden, well it’s floral but a bit »spicy » too in my opinion. I agree, it is not fresh at all. The bottle is lovely to the most, the pink flower is so pretty . I will wear that perfume soon but not on a regular basis, I much prefer Guerlain Passiflora for spring days ! Or Miu Miu Eau Rose 🙂
