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.
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.
