According to the professional perfumer at D&G, Mathilde Bijaoui, this perfume is intended to be reminiscent of ancient Sicily and chose musk as the centerpiece of the fragrance. The notes of the Oriental perfumery are combined with Italian ingredients to create Velvet Oriental Musk.
The top notes of the perfume include cardamom and cumin, as well as sandalwood, saffron and tonka bean. Similar to the other perfumes of the Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Collection, Velvet Oriental Musk reflects its Arabic heritage in a Sicilian background.
The perfume is packaged in blue and gold, imitating old-style architecture in Sicily.
Velvet Oriental Musk will be available to purchase at all Dolce & Gabbana beauty counters in the region.
