Fragrance Friday: all about Dolce & Gabbana's new Velvet Mughetto

The Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Collection of unique and beautiful fragrances is full of hidden delights, and when it comes to picking a favourite - one is simply never enough. Supremely luxe and infinitely collectable, I haven’t met one I haven’t loved – wearing the heavenly Velvet Tender Oud on an almost daily basis.
The latest addition to the exclusive collection is the definitely original Velvet Mughetto, an eau de parfum that the brand calls “a celebration of the Mediterranean Spring”. Inspired by the rising Sicilian sun, the delicate, warming scent captures the island’s beautiful landscape with notes of bergamot, cassis and pink peppercorn, which are perfectly blended with a heart of lily of the valley, magnolia and patchouli. Fruity and floral, the light fragrance is anchored with a woody base of santal essence, cypriol essence and cashmeran wood to evoke the heady and organic scents of nature.
The olfactory family it belongs to is floral/fruity, and perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur has done a fantastic job of creating a beautiful example of just that. She has harnessed a notoriously tricky ingredient – lily of the valley – and used it to stunning effect. Warm and creamy, I can see this becoming a firm favourite of mine over the coming warmer months.

Like all of the scents in the Velvet Collection, Velvet Mughetto is presented in the signature flacon of the Velvet collection – a glass bottle crowned with a gold-trimmed velvet cap. Available right now exclusively at Smith & Caughey Queen Street with an RRP of $295, it would most definitely make for an ideal last minute gift for a loved one – or gift to self.
Next on my wish list from Dolce & Gabbana is the citrus-floral Sicily eau de parfum, which is a whimsical, sexy ode to the designer duo's native island. Designed to evoke an Italian landscape with the scent of freshly laundered linens drying in the breeze and sun-drenched citrus groves, it is as decadent as it is delicious. Didn’t I say that one Dolce scent is never enough?
