Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rose Excelsa

"A Quest for the Perfect Rose. An olfactory journey, exploring the roses of Sicily, Turkey and South Africa is illustrated in this inspiring video. These exquisite blooms compose the bouquet of roses captured in Dolce Rosa Excelsa."

The Concept
Following the floral tradition initiated by Dolce, the new Dolce Rosa Excelsa Eau de Parfum captures the boldness and pure spirit of the rose with the essence of fresh petals in bloom. The precious heart of Dolce Rosa Excelsa seduces with two delicate and noble Rose notes. Used for the first time in perfumery, the African Dog Rose premieres in this exquisite fragrance creation. This rare note is combined with the enveloping femininity of the Turkish Rose Absolute, highly-prized in perfumery for its olfactive intensity. Iconic, timeless and unique, the rose is a recurrent motif throughout Dolce&Gabbana's runway collections.

Fragrance Notes
Top -- The fragrance opens with a sweet-smelling explosion of lively Neroli leaves and Papaya flowers, dissipating into a floral bouquet of White Water Lily and White Daffodil.
Heart -- Precious notes of Turkish Rose Absolute and rare African Dog Rose add charming richness to Dolce's signature blend.
Base -- The feminine floral heart is counterbalanced by a background of warm Musky notes, Cashmeran and Sandalwood, leaving a sensual trail of light woods, earthy tones and piquant spices.

The Design
The Dolce Rosa Excelsa bottle mirrors the unique shape of Dolce and Dolce Floral Drops: thick glass, curved lines and a cap sculpted in the shape of a flower - this time with deep crimson red petals. The scent's pale pink elixir is presented in frosted glass, and finished with the feminine Dolce signature to express the delicate elegance of this complex new fragrance.

The Film
The new advertising campaign by Dolce&Gabbana brings together three Italian Academy Award winners: director Giuseppe Tornatore, composer Ennio Morricone, actress Sophia Loren. Emotional and rich in symbolism, the short film brings to life the story of the new Dolce&Gabbana Beauty creation, Dolce Rosa Excelsa.

The Campaign
In a new campaign shot by Domenico Dolce and directed by Stefano Gabbana, the white flowers of the Dolce Garden are enriched with intertwining red roses, creating the perfect backdrop for the new Dolce Rosa Excelsa campaign, which sees Kate King again as the testimonial.

Key Ingredients
Dolce Rosa Excelsa captures the essence of fresh petals in bloom with two precious rose notes. Used for the first time in perfumery, the rare African Dog Rose comes from a charming coastal flowering tree that grows in the rich and fertile flora of South Africa. It is combined with the deep pink flowers of Turkish Rose Absolute, highly prized in perfumery for its olfactive intensity. Together, these sensual rose notes enrich the opulent, full-bodied scent of White Amaryllis - the signature of Dolce. African Dog Rose and White Amaryllis were both captured using 'Headspace Technology', a revolutionary and sustainable process that captures the precise scent of the flower when it is in full bloom without needing to cut and grind the petals to extract the essential oil.
