D&G L'Imperatrice



I was recently sent the Dolce and Gabbana 3 L'Imperatrice fragrance from BeautySpin. This product is sold on their website from £26-£33 which is well discounted compared to other retailers. A great feature of the BeautySpin website is that they have thousands of testers of fragrances on their website from as little as 70 pence which allows you to trial out a fragrance before you splurge out and purchase the full sized product.

Packaging


The packaging of this perfume is very sleek and minimalistic which I personally find aesthetically pleasing. The perfume bottle itself is made of very strong glass which feels very sturdy, heavy and expensive to the touch. The D&G logo is embossed in bold, black font near the bottom of the bottle and a white label is printed stating the number and name of the fragrance. The lid is also very robust and is a matte black cap with a rigid texture which gives the illusion as if it would be screwed off like a twist cap however that feature is simply for design.

Scent

This fragrance is a very fruity and floral scent with an aquatic theme running though it. The scent has very strong notes of fruits, in particular kiwi and watermelon, as the fragrance wears on the skin, scents of lemon and musk appear which last well on the skin. This scent is best for day time wear and is most appropriate for in the spring and the summer. I think this will be my go to scent over the next few months.

Longevity

Admittedly, this fragrance does not have the longest staying power and I find myself having to top it up after 4 or 5 hours, but nevertheless the scent does linger just not quite as strong as I would anticipate. 

Notes

Top Notes: Pink pepper, Kiwi and Rhubarb 
Heart Notes: Jasmine, Cyclamen and Watermelon
Base Notes: Musk, Sandalwood and Lemon Tree


I personally love this fragrance for day wear and I think it is perfect for the spring and summer months.

  4. What a great idea that they offer fragrance samples! I think this would be great for someone looking for a new signature scent and not wanting to spend loads of money just to get it totally wrong! That's what I did when I bought Si by Giorgio Armani on a whim; I ended up hating it and I cringe any time someone comes near me wearing it now! This fragrance sounds right up my street though; I love anything floral or fruity!

  9. This sounds so lovely! I'm actually ok with scents that don't last too long...4 - 5 hours is still pretty good! I find the scents that last 6 hours + start off really strong to begin with.

  14. This is such a gorgeous girlie scent! My flatmate wore this all the time when I was in uni so it always reminds me of her. I have a sample but I really need to pick up a bottle, I think it's a pretty good price too!
