Dolce and Gabbana Fall 2012
As you probably know all the major fashion houses have been having their shows. Today on Tumblr I came across a photo which turned out to be the stage for the Dolce & Gabbana runway show in Milan. That took me to their site where I was enchanted by the 2012 Fall collection.
The rich, ornamental fabrics combined with a Victorian flair have me swooning. If I were to translate these visuals into a perfume it would be a heavy incense oriental. A typical oriental fragrance is characterized as having a fresh top note in contrast to a heavy floral heart and rich base notes.
From my ready to wear fragrances I would choose Cimbalom for the women and Aumbre for the guys and To Bee as the unisex selection.
Of the perfumes in the works the Sherlock Holmes fragrance I have been working on falls nicely into this genre as well as the yet to be named Jasmine Noir and the one that has been kept a secret.
