The Concept

Desire is not to be put on show; it is to be kept hidden like a precious jewel, until the moment its splendor shines. It’s the moment that has the power to change everything. Dolce&Gabbana The One Desire evokes a mysterious world of light and shadows, of temptation and seduction. An intimate, personal sphere in which each woman decides on whom to lay her gaze, a place where the line between instinct and desire is faded and blurred.

The Design

Matte gold and black characterize Desire’s flacon and packaging. A sophisticated reinterpretation of the classic shape of the bottle for Dolce&Gabbana The One collection, the flacon is inscribed with Stefano Gabbana’s elegant handwriting of Desire in gold lettering. The opaque gold hue draws on the opulence of Sicily’s Baroque period, the birthplace of Domenico Dolce. A black gemstone reflecting light from its many facets creates a precious cap.

Top

Fresh top notes of mandarin, lychee and bergamot play softly against the sweet innocence of lily of the valley.

Heart

At the core of an intense heart is a trio of ultra feminine florals. The elegance of Madonna lily and the heady opulence of Indian tuberose are blended with velvety jasmine and addictively sweet plum nectar.

Base

Adding an indulgent richness to the base is a gourmand note of vanilla infused caramel, melded with warming sandalwood, and a touch of mysterious musk and Cistus Labdanum.
