Dolce & Gabbana’s Dolce Rosa Excelsa Eau de Parfum* | Available online
A new scent has blossomed into the Dolce & Gabbana Dolce perfume garden and it is truly enchanting. Dolce Rosa Excelsa, as the name and rose-tinged bottle would suggest, is inspired by the pure spirit of the multifaceted rose flower, with the essence of fresh petals in bloom. Not only known for its floral accords, the rose flower is an ancient symbol of love, beauty and romance, possessing a delicate yet powerful presence. It is unique, iconic and timeless and the very inspiration for this latest Dolce release.
This fragrance really challenges any preconceptions you might have about a rose-based scent. I too thought this might be a little powdery and heavy for my liking but in actual fact, the whole fragrance has a bright, fresh and crisp appeal to it. The explosion of Neroli leaves and Papaya flower add a sweetness as they dissipate into the floral bouquet of White Water Lily and White Daffodil. At the heart of the fragrance lies two delicate and noble rose notes – the African Dog Rose which is pure and soft, and the Turkish Rose Absolute which adds a sensual and elegant character. At the vey base of this perfume you will find warm musky notes that are present but not too overpowering. Cashmeran and Sandalwood leave a senseal trail of light woods, earthy tones and piquant spices to the Rose Excelsa perfume, making it a very wearable choice day or night, and perfect to match the lightness of Spring.
The curvaceous frosted glass bottle is the star attraction and houses the prettiest pink elixir inside, topped with a sculpted flower cap in a crimson hue. The feminine Dolce signature finishes this perfume perfectly and expresses the delicate elegance of this complex new fragrance,
