A DARK, MYSTERIOUS VEIL FLUTTERING OVER HONEY-HUED STONES IN THE MEDITERRANEAN LIGHT.
Blending notes of Oriental perfumery with the finest Italian ingredients, the fragrance offers a modern interpretation of the most ancient and mystical ingredient of perfumery: incense, into a glittering mosaic of sizzling resins.
Vibrant incense essence is set alight by a spark of black pepper essence. With its citrus and pepper facets, elemi essence echoes these opening notes, its resinous burn introducing the darker heart of the fragrance.
The Orient and the Mediterranean worlds meet as incense resinoid, intense with balsamic hints, blends with cistus absolute, an ambery resin drawn from typical trees of Sicilian hillsides. Benzoin resinoid adds its cinnamon and vanilla sweetness. Smooth patchouli essence and powerful amber wood extend the magical trail of Velvet Incenso deep into the night.

DOMENICO DOLCE AND STEFANO GABBANA
The Velvet collection
It’s from the private memories of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana that the Dolce&Gabbana Velvet Collection of exquisite perfumes was inspired. Velvet is an emblem for the history, fashion and personal recollections it brings together. It’s unique in its feel and appearance, and is sensual, evocative and hand-crafted, just like the Dolce&Gabbana Velvet Collection perfumes.
Each scent from Dolce&Gabbana Velvet Collection is the fruit of a dedicated research into the ancient essences of Italian tradition, reinterpreted using contemporary perfume-making techniques, bringing the wearer on an unprecedented olfactory journey to discover the origins and the history of Dolce&Gabbana. Just like a couture dress.
