Spring/Summer 2019

Scent of Sicily

The new perfume in the Dolce&Gabbana Velvet Collection, Velvet Oriental Musk, explores the mysteries of the passage of time in a mystical blend dedicated to the majestic, monumental land: Sicily.

It’s an eternal place – a world of light and shadow, where warm meets cool; East meets West, and the ancient and modern intertwine. The perfume is created to reimagine both the Arab heritage in Sicily and the glistening, vibrant, and wild splendour of the island as it stands today, says Dolce&Gabbana.

Perpetuating the tradition of the oriental blends that combine notes of Oriental perfumery with the finest Italian ingredients, Velvet Oriental Musk collection offers a tribute to the most treasured scent of all: musk.

For Velvet Oriental Musk, master perfumer Mathilde Bijaoui anoints intense musk as the centrepiece of this olfactive tribute to Sicily. Yet, the scent of musk is never obvious or overplayed; like the sweet, enveloping breeze rising from the ancient Arab monuments, the fragrance enshrines the musk with a warm, shimmering sensuality, enveloping accords of ancient woods and spices, and refined notes of the precious rose damascena.

Reflecting the gold and lapis-lazuli décors of the Sicilian capital Palermo’s monuments, the spare, assertive bottle of the Velvet Collection takes on the deep blue shade of the precious stone.
