    Default "K" by Dolce & Gabbana - new "secret" scent!?

    Earlier this week I was checking the online tax-free shop in Copenhagen Airport and I found this beautiful new bottle. It looked a bit like a The One bottle but with a different stopper, which was a king's crown. I guess that "K" may stand for King.
    I was immediately searching the internet for additional info but could not find anything at all. Now I find out that they have removed it from their website and I think they have been to fast and it is not released yet.

    So.....anyone knows anything?

    Sounds like it might be a limited edition with very limited distribution.

    That's going to cost a lot. I am not sure but that's not how designer stuff work. They leverage on qty.

    Maybe it's an airport only / duty free exclusive for now. Did you manage to test it?

    That could very well be.

    Tried this today at Mall of Emirates, the SA brought it out for me to try after I told her I’d already tried all D&G stuff previously

    The cap looks tacky but the fragrance (lightish blue in colour) was actually quite nice.

    The only notes I can recall her mentioning were pimiento and lavender

    Price was it was 445 Dirham which is approximately USD $120

    Keep in mind all prices at the department stores within the malls in UAE are at least 25% higher than normal pricing

    She said this was going to be a whole new collection too. I’d probably pay around $80 max

    I think this is being sold at Macy’s in the US as an exclusive to the chain. In the post-Sephora era, Macy’s has been locking up many more mainstream short-term big-name exclusives in the US. First it was Mont Blanc Explorer, then Acqua di Gio Absolu Instinct, and now this.

    The Shiseido Fragrances rep wasn’t there when I smelled this - it reminded me of something already out there, but I couldn’t put my finger on what.

    I tried Absolu Instinct at Dillard's when it first came out. But the others, yeah, I'd been waiting for a while for Explorer to become available elsewhere.

    Two weeks after I first saw it at Macy’s? That has to be a record to go from mainstream retailer to discounter.

    Dolce & Gabbana will launch K by Dolce & Gabbana, a new fragrance for men.

    K by Dolce&Gabbana

    Masculine. Authentic. Captivating.

    K by Dolce&Gabbana is a fragrance which celebrates a new era of masculinity. It conjures the Italian countryside and the Mediterranean midday sun with a combination of citrus freshness, blood orange and Sicilian lemon. This crisp and masculine scent is edged by the fresh bite of juniper berry. Then comes the sensual pulse of noble cedarwood. It blends with green vetiver and patchouli. And to give K by Dolce&Gabbana a unique and assertive personality, an unexpected spark of fiery pimiento essence adds a red-hot touch of heat. K by Dolce&Gabbana is a pour homme fragrance that invigorates and inspires.

    K by Dolce & Gabbana will be available in 100 ml Eau de Toilette (and probably in other sizes as well).

    Update: K by Dolce & Gabbana is also in 50 ml at The Bay in Canada.

    Saw this yesterday being plugged in Boots here in the UK. I think the "limited distribution" theory can now be discounted

    Picked up my bottle today after regretting not buying it a week ago. For once I agree with the comparison on Fragrantica. It definitely has a resemblance to YSL Ultime. I happen to really like the YSL and this was different enough to justify grabbing a bottle

    I tried it a few days ago at macys, overall from what I remember it was ok, nothing special, from what I remember drydown was some musky woods. Longevity was better then I expected for D&G, maybe have to try a few more times but with initial sampling not going to buy a full bottle

    Its pleasant but its bottle is insanely tacky and destined for Ross and TJ Maxx.

    I was okay with the bottle, but the cap is way over the top.

    Macy’s had a huge display counter yesterday and I sampled but not bought. Hearing performance is lacking

    Honestly I was trying a number of scents and didn’t give it a real wearing.

    Ha! If you find this OTT, stay away from Royal Crown fragrances.

    They should have kept the secret to themselves.

    I tried it yesterday. Fuzzy woods. That's all I'll say. It definitely gave me some Sauvage / Aventus vibes. It's rather soft, but also has a nice citrus / grapefruit / orange note. So much so I had to check whether I didn't damage the bottle of blood orange flavoured gin I bought

    That bottle is horrible though.

    Smelled it at a Duty Free a couple days ago, very refreshing "lemonade-like" opening. Didn't care for the dry down, and found it boring and too much Ambroxan.
