[productsample]  I’m not going to lie – when this arrived I thought it was going to be violet from the colour and packaging, so to discover that it’s peony was a bit of a disappointment. Peony is about the last floral fragrance I’d ever pick for myself.

However, Dolce & Gabbana Peony Fragrance has made me look a bit differently at this particular flower – this is a perfume that is full of personality, more intense on the dominant note than most and surrounded by other accents that raise it up. There’s a fresh and fruity aspect that I like a lot as well as a touch of rose but I think it’s the plum nectar that seals the deal.

In Asian nations, the peony carries far more symbolism than it does here but I’m not going to turn my back on luck, health and wealth! Peony is absolutely worth a second look even if you feel vanilla about the single scent, like I do. It’s the wrapping accords that make all the difference and build a perfume that’s noteworthy. I don’t have a launch date for this, but it has to be any moment now and it’s £66 for 50ml.
