Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection fragrances

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.

    I believe that my fiancee would love the pineapple scent the best of the two but she would like both. I think that I would have a hard time choosing as I think she would smell great with either scent.

    I’d love them both, but I am partial to Lemon 🍋 because I can close my eyes and pretend I’m driving a Vespa along the Amalfi Coast.

      For me it has to be Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection Lemon fragrance
      Dolce & Gabbana Fruit Collection Lemon because I love anything with a fresh and solar-fruity scent. Shame the bottle isn’t perfectly designed as Marc Jacobs but not all brands can be the same…
