I once took the ferry from Naples to Ischia, on the way to the long-awaited island holiday it was the last leg. Passing Procida I went in about one hour to the flower island in the gulf of Naples. And the smell when we arrived there, that was it! (I wore MAgie Noire, so it was not me who spread the perfume) I used to love to wear the "old" Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme (1992 version), affectionately called "red cap", and now I have recently rediscovered the new edition of 2012 or dared to give it a new chance. It's not the same, but similar, it captures the mood, that certain Italian something, that warm femininity, a mixture of elegance and sensuality and - forgive me the profanity: kitchen herbs - some of the waxy heaviness of the old version has disappeared, but I was pleased and surprised to find something of my also missing and equally beloved Sicily again, honeysuckle is not mentioned, so it probably won't be (but maybe it's included anyway....), so I suspect the combination of heliotrope, jasmine and sandalwood to have something in common.
Orange blossoms give freshness, the sweet soft powder looks elegant, spices I think I can recognize, up to the herbalism, sweet almond biscuits, some sandalwood in the base.
A warm evening in summer or a cool winter afternoon, it always fits!
Italian elegance, lots of temperament and warmth that gives a lot of security. Feminine!
I have not regretted the new beginning and I reach for this "all round" more often than I thought.
