Reviews of D&G L'Impératrice 3

A lot of hate this one which is undeserved in my opinion. Yes, there's fruit here and yes this isn't incredible complex but it does smell expensive, sexy and it smells great on women. Performance is eh but still thumbs up overall.

This is a bunch of fruit. I get a nice acidity. Rhubarb, red currant and kiwi are well present and natural. There’s some green banana as well. I quite love it.

When D & G fragrances (and Gucci for that matter) turned into Victoria's Secrets fragrances, I lost interest. Exhibit A: L'Imperatrice 3.

I thought the sweet, musky "berry blend" opening was bad, but got even worse when the watermelon showed up. Gobs of screechy white musk throughout. Lasts forever, naturally.

Hard to believe this is the same house that produced the distinctive, classy original "red cap" for women and the more traditional, but deliciously masculine "blue cap" for men.

A fruity watermelon opening note sees nice kiwi fruit impression intermingled with it, resulting in a pleasantly summery beginning. I get a rhubarb-like component in the drydown, followed by a musky base; the latter is a bit less well made.

I get soft sillage, decent projection and five hours of longevity. Not particularly exciting but well made - this is overall pleasant and nice. 2.5/5

L'Imperatrice is delightfully fruity, watery and fresh.

The watermelon and kiwi fruit notes go well together and in some ways I enjoy this lack of citrus. I am reminded of sorbet when I smell this fragrance, it has quite a sweet touch which is both smooth and desirable.

Although sweet, L'Imperatrice is not synthetic. This smells expensive. I am rather surprised that this is unisex, I found the top notes to be extremely feminine. However, in the base notes I sense a hint of masculinity. The sweetness tends to mellow and the kiwi note becomes stronger and much more tart. This tarty kiwi fruit and musk blend I don't enjoy on myself, however I could see it working well on a man.

The lasting power is so-so, with the sillage being quite intimate. I think it would be risky to buy this for a man if you weren't sure if he likes sweet scents. However, in the case of women, I think a majority of their buyers will be the fairer sex.
