“She is a woman aware of her own beauty, who loves to take risks and knows how to get what she wants with her gentle touch and her sensuality.” — Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana
With Pour Femme, Dolce & Gabbana go back to basics — basically everything the discerning woman of today could want, that is: Femininity and pluck, modesty and gumption, traditional and modern, exuberance and poise, wit and style … And now, she can have it all in her grasp.
The dynamic duo’s careful choice of contrasting ingredients in this EDP captures all of the above. There’s the soft and soothing touch of neroli intertwined with nuances of raspberry, the combination of which is given a playful twist in the form of green mandarin. At the heart, a voluptuous sensuality greets you at first. Hang out with her a little longer and she unveils a more demure whiff of florals — the velvet comfort of jasmine and the sweetness of orange blossom. And just as you thought you’ve got her all figured out, she draws you in further with the sugary allure of Guimauve and vanilla at the base, as heliotrope and intense cream sandalwood hit it off to add a bright, lasting spark. You’re hooked.
And why are we not surprised at all to see Pour Femme’s plush packaging and cinematic campaign? Dolce & Gabbana are all for luxury and style, and nothing is too much. Sexy crimson with a velvet touch? Embossed gold logo? A fairy-tale TV ad shot by Mario Testino featuring the lovely Laetitia Casta against a breathtaking Italian backdrop? Check, check, check. Love it, love it, love it.
So now, the real question is: Are you Femme enough to wear it?
