Much like past editions of the Dolce and Gabbana, Dolce franchise, Dolce and Gabbana, Dolce Rosa Excelsa Eau de Parfum is beautifully presented and in a similar manner too. Back once again is a timeless, frosted glass bottle finished off with a black bow and a delicate red rose cap. It is whimsical, fun yet not at all cheesy - this is a bottle you will display with pride.
Now for the actual fragrance, as you have most likely guessed Dolce and Gabbana, Dolce Rosa Excelsa Eau de Parfum does of course feature more than a hint of rose. Dolce and Gabbana, Dolce Rosa Excelsa Eau de Parfum has been created to capture the freshness and pure spirit of a rose in bloom; this is achieved by blending two rose notes. For the first time ever in the world of perfumery, African Dog Rose is relied upon, for depth and richness this is combined with the delicate Turkish Rose Absolute. To prevent the scent from being too rose based, Rose Excelsa contains light, bright and white floral notes of: Neroli leaves and Papaya flowers, White Water Lily and White Daffodil, with a seductive kick of Sandalwood at the base to promote wear length.
I must stress that unlike other rose fragrances Dolce and Gabbana, Dolce Rosa Excelsa Eau de Parfum, this is fresh and not at all powdery. It is classic yet youthful and should appeal to most ages and tastes for that matter - in my opinion it is the perfect Spring scent; it reminds me a lot of dew and Spring bouquets. Think of this as a rose tinged version of the original Dolce fragrance and you won't go far wrong.
