Review: Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme Eau de Parfum
Dolce & Gabbana's Pour Femme EDP is a most delightful sophisticate in the gourmand genre. Not sickly sweet - but decidedly sweet - it opens with a gentle, tempered citrus and bright berry note. This is rapidly overtaken by a luscious blend of white florals. I smell jasmine and a bit of orange blossom. The florals are not indolic at all, mixed as they are with an airy, clean marshmallow note. Marshmallow keeps this from going too vanillic and heavy. It is not at all a caramelized kind of sugar. It lends the whole thing a youthful, fresh sensibility that is a nice change from all of the burnt sugar and caramel in so many gourmand fragrances now. I love it for all seasons. In the heat, the florals bloom a bit more, while in the cold it becomes a bit more sugary. One last observation: Pour Femme is a sillage monster and lasts all day. I am very careful with this one and don't wear it to work because I don't want to impose my fragrance on anyone whom it might bother. When I wear this, my significant other can tell in which rooms of the house I've been, it's that potent. One or two spritzes will easily last all day.
And now for the good news on price: you should be easily able to find the smaller bottle of this fragrance at the reputable fragrance discounters for around $50-60.
