Dolce and Gabbana Velvet Wood from the Velvet Collection

New from Dolce and Gabbana is the Velvet collection, a beautifully presented line of six new scents inspired by the " concept of traditional luxury".

So far I've had the chance to try Velvet Wood. Velvet Wood ( inspired by ebony wood) is composed of soft sexy woods, benzoin and  a nice hint of leather.  My nose  detects some patchouli, but that's not technically listed.

It's not simply masculine but a man could definitely wear it and it has masculine touches.  It's deep , has  presence  and is subty sexy scent and very of the season, the Valentines season, that is.

Despite the strong sounding notes, Velvet Wood wears rather softly. The sillage is medium and it's not an overly strong fragrance .

These come , naturally, in a beautiful satin lined velvet box.  Quite the presentation.

The full scent  list is :


Each is $ 195 for 1.6 oz  at
