Latest Reviews of Dolce & Gabbana pour Femme (new)

This is a sleeper in my own collection. I often overlook it, but every time I wear it I feel like there’s no reason I shouldn’t wear it more often. It’s sweet, but in a more reserved and thoughtful way than some others of this type, particularly others with a marshmallow note. I’m not saying that I don’t enjoy those too, but this is a little bit more of a courteous fragrance. It’s not screaming look at me. It’s quietly feminine and beautiful. I can wear this anywhere, and pretty much any time too. It’s not quite a skin scent, but it’s a polite, and soft little bubble of beauty.

A very cheerful, feminine, cozy, easy to wear and powdery scent. Opens with a sweet strawberry, dries down to a cuddly marshmallow/vanilla/heliotrope powder-thing. Feels both young and grown up at once, and therefore can fit a girl or woman of any age. It is lightly related to its pink and powdery cousins Guerlain's Insolence and Westwood's Boudoir, but is so much more subtle, understated and demure than any of them. One can wear it to work without any hesitation - D&G pour Femme will not shout nor kick nor offend, it will behave like a lady, soothe you and charm others with its understated sweet and lovely nature. You must like sweets to enjoy it though.

Quick early blast, then a period where the scent seems to pause and slowly fill the air with strong vanilla base tinged with a nice heliotrope and sandalwood support. Definitely a "yummy"sweet scent, but the vanilla overwhelmed the experience for me.

A delightful opening blast that is given a slightly restrained citrusy aroma - mandarin, whiffs of lemon and a good lashing of neroli - with a fruity undertone. The result is not overtly fresh, but more on the calmly refreshing side. In spite of the rather usual selection of components the result of mixing these is surprisingly beautiful.

The drydown develops a pleasant jasmine with an undertone of white florals, whilst the base steers into a sweeter direction, with a very balanced vanilla joining a marshmallow impression to create an olfactory desert that is never too sweet or cloying. This is due to the admixture of woodsy aroma that helps mitigating the sweetness.

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and a very impressive eleven hours of longevity on my skin.

This is a lovely scent for cooler summer evenings, belended well of ingredients of high quality and combining fresh richness with elegance. The performance is excellent. 3.5/5.

This is a truly beautiful perfume. Sweet, light, not too strong in a projection sense, but certainly detectable by others. It's not cloying in any way, though by just reading the notes you'd think it would be. The citrus and raspberry give it just enough tartness that the marshmallow and Jasmine aren't too much. A much more complex scent than I think it's usually given credit for. I always get lots of compliments when I wear this one, and more importantly I always feel happy when I wear it. I especially like to wear it before bed at night, amped up with some marshmallow fragrance oil. I can feel myself smiling as I drift off to sleep.

I think this is a really good perfume for day and night, depending on the person. It does smell very feminine and sweet but not overbearing. If someone wears it I instantly think that their a nice person (i don't know, maybe its just my own memories). It lasts well on skin however I find it doesn't have strong silage. Saying that, someone will definitely be able to smell it on you.

Its really good for summer I find, because its warm but fresh at the same time and you really do get a nice hint of pleasant vanilla as other have said.

Am wearing this now, at work. I work as a hotel front desk agent, so I can't wear anything too overbearing. This fits the bill nicely-soft, citrusy, woody and sweet without being too sweet. Someone just peeled an orange in the back office and the scent of the peel seems to meld with the perfume...lovely.

Edit: I am now retired, and still enjoy wearing this

This is lovely; the nicest treatment of vanilla I have ever smelt: vanilla with flowers, fruit and marshmallows. The closest thing I can think of is JPG's Fleur du Male, but this is even nicer. It is softer, which is appropriate, seeing as we are talking about a lady's perfume here (not to discount Fleur du Male's femininity). It may also be a good sweet fragrance for those that don't like things too sweet (? tangerine and raspberry as mediators). Quite possibly a masterpiece.

My girlfriend liked the original Dolce & Gabbana fragrance ever since it was released back in 1992, and so did I. We received a sample of the new Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme today so had to try it instantly.

She had tried Flowerbomb (which I just can't stand) only a couple of hours before, so the sweet sting which almost all contemporary fragrances seem to be obliged to bear instantly hit me, and I turned away disgusted - only to return a few minutes later, and with growing interest: I get a strong neroli note with light raspberry, rounded off with a quite sour yet interesting greenish tangerine accent, yet this quickly opens to the heart of orange blossom and jasmine, to quite equal parts I'd say, while the sour-frouty opening note is still there. Add to this only another minute later the emergence of a prominent yet not distracting presence of vanilla and marshmallow (yes indeed, I can spot this clearly and easily!), which in the drydown is complemented and rounded by a smooth and warm sandalwood base.

This could easily be as horrible as the single ingredients sound, sweet and artificial and just another contemporary vanilla-powder-syrup - yet I'm really amazed that at least to me this truly works. I do not at all have the impression of another cheap pink perfume that I feard, but instead of a refined, very well balanced, very well crafted delicate piece of delicate, sweet art of perfumery.

Not a substitute for the beloved 1992 vintage of course, but a highly recommended complement. I look forward to getting to know it further in the coming weeks.
