Which Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection fragrance is your favourite? Pineapple or lemon? Tell us and you could win both!
One of the most exciting fragrance projects of 2020 is Dolce & Gabbana’s Fruit Collection fragrances. The Italian design duo paid tribute to the mouthwatering marzipan confections found in tiny pasticceries throughout Sicily. These sugar creations are shaped into lemons, oranges and pineapples – and are proudly displayed in the café windows to entice tourists and residents. The marzipan Frutta di Martonara as they are called are beloved throughout Italy.
Dolce & Gabbana pay homage to this art with a trio of fruit-themed fragrances that sport spectacular caps shaped as lemons, oranges and pineapples. The fragrances are fresh and joyful built around the single fruit in nuanced layers.
Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection Pineapple
Pineapple is an exotic fruity-gourmand fragrance created by perfumer Marie Salamagne that perfectly captures the sweet tang of fresh pineapple. She blends juicy Sicilian mandarin oil with sun-soaked jasmine sambac and pure vanilla absolute. Then she finishes the composition off with orchid, amber and moss. The crisp pineapple is beautifully balanced with the floral notes – and the vanilla gives it warmth.
Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection Lemon
Lemon is described as a fresh, solar-fruity scent created by perfumer Jerome Epinette who takes inspiration from the markets of Palermo and the Sicilian lemon harvests. He establishes the fragrance as a classic Italian cologne with fresh lemon and Calabrian bergamot oils cold-pressed from the fruit zests. He then blends in lemon tree petitgrain distilled from the leaves. A splash of ginger essence adds a nice kick before a mossy drydown of Haitian vetiver and woody notes. It is refreshing and joyful.
THE GIVEAWAY: I gave away this pair of Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection fragrances to one lucky reader. To enter, I asked readers to tell me in a blog post comment below which of the two scents is their favourite and why? Brett M told us and we drew his name from all entries. Congrats Brett!
Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection fragrances are available at select Hudson’s Bay stores.

I think I would prefer lemon since I’m a huge fan of their Light Blue fragrance, which is also citrusy. The pineapple scent does intrigue me though, I’m not sure I’ve tried a fragrance with that scent. @shivon800

I love the Pineapple one as it sounds so exotic and has some of my favourite additions such as mandarin oil, jasmine sambac and vanilla

Pineapple sounds different and intriguing, we have lots of lemon / citrusy scents already…
Cathy BadenhorstOctober 23, 2020 at 3:57 pm
Definitely a hard one to choose…I will say that the Lemon one appeals to me most as I love a lemon scent. The woody notes and the addition of the ginger essence will really bring this scent to life.
