Posted by Dimitri on Mon, 01/14/2019 - 8:00 PM

Several years ago, fashion maestros Dolce & Gabbana unveiled their Exclusive Fragrance Blends collection which continues to grow in size today. Luxuriously packaged and boasting exceptional ingredients, this range of 18 scents to date each share the word 'Velvet' in their name; velvet being unique in its feel and appearance.  This collection celebrates the origins and history of  Italian tradition in both perfumery and couture.

Velvet Patchouli - one of the core perfumes in the range - took incense as a source of inspiration.  A tiny church in a rural Italian village whose incense meanders through its cobbled streets. With its sweet and spicy patchouli oil,  and focus on incense and precious woods, Velvet Patchouli exudes strength and confidence. A masculine perfume with a lovely chypre lilt, this fragrance also has a sensuous musk foundation with a huff of liquorice, making it intense and dominant in presence.

Velvet Patchouli has above average persistence and excellent projection. In the Dolce and Gabbana universe, it burns brighter than many others that have gone before itÉ smooth, luxurious and decisive, its perfect for work or evening wear.
