The initial buzz surrounding the new Dolce & Gabbana fragrances was pretty positive. I had high hopes and fully expected to cave on at least one bottle. The collection boasts five fragrances that have been influenced by women and tarot cards. According to our Nordstorm SA, tarot cards have nothing to do with the line. Patti(makeupalley's Cavewoman) knew better. Tarot cards were featured in a magazine spread about the fragrance along with this blurb:
"The names and numbers on the bottles relate to tarot cards. Tarot is very common in Mediterranean countries and conveys the different aspects of people's personalities."
"We picked the tarot cards with the clearest, most identifiable traits such as the seducer, charmer and dreamer. We can all relate to these characters."
The first scent in the collection is called 1 Le Bateleur' Eau de Toilette. This is very light and airy for a vetiver. It is on the masculine side but the drydown is very damp earth-ish. I liked the effect.
The official list of ingredients are watermelon, kiwi, pink cyclamen and musk.
The new Dolce & Gabbana fragrances are currently at your local Nordstorm store. The scents retail for $65 each and are exclusive to the store for a limited time.
