Dolce&Gabbana Dolce Garden Eau de Parfum Review



Dolce Garden Eau de Parfum is a delicious new flower blossoming in a garden where simple pleasures and spontaneity set the beat for a joyful dance during a lazy yet groovy afternoon. It truly is a joyful, solar aura blending citrus and cream. Oh, and the bottle… simply pretty!

With Dolce Garden -- a floriental gourmand -- the perfumer Violaine Collas captures its every nuance. In the sun-kissed top notes, juicy mandarin, bright Néroli and airy magnolia express its radiance. Coconut essence, a unique natural extract of the fruit’s white flesh, accents the creamy freshness of its petals. A silky almond milk accord evokes the traditional sweets of Sicily. Enriched with vanilla absolute and sandalwood, it extends the exquisite sensuality of the frangipani note into the drydown. An exquisite balance of freshness and sweetness, the scents of a blooming garden.

  • Top Notes: Mandarin, Néroli, Magnolia
  • Mid Notes: Coconut, Frangipani
  • Base Notes: Almond, Vanilla, Sandalwood

To express the playful femininity of Dolce Garden, the unique designed bottle, the fragrance and flower cap take on a pastel pink portraying the innate delicatessen of flowers in bloom. Twining blossoms petals, the outer pack showcases a soft touch finish. A thin black grosgrain ribbon, presented in an elegant bow, is the signature of the Dolce line. In contrast, the green “garden” signature underlines the fresh, natural facets of the new fragrance.

Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino Get The Look



To add to the drama of Dolce& Gabbana’s Couture show, Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a variety of sleek chignons and knots to anchor the designer’s stunning headpieces.

“The hair for Dolce & Gabbana was dependent on the headpiece made for each girl. I prepped the hair with Redken’s guts 10, and then created a center part before styling various types of chignons, loose Sicilian knots, braided knots and loose buns,” - Guido

Get The Look:

Step One: Spray Redken pillow proof blow dry express primer all over damp hair and comb through

Step Two: Apply a quarter-size amount of Redken guts 10 volumizing spray-foam mousse to damp hair, working into the hair from roots to ends

Step Three: Blow dry hair smooth using a flat brush

Step Four: Apply a nickel-size amount of Redken braid aid 08 braid defining lotion from mid-lengths to ends of hair

Step Five: Twist the length of the hair into a knot or chignon and secure with small hairpins

Step Six: Finish with a thorough mist of Redken control addict 28 high control hairspray for extra hold

Step Seven: Place desired headpiece, hat or accessory on head and secure with small hairpins if necessary

“The inspiration for Valentino was Romanesque, so for the hair, we used the jewelry that was made for the collection as a crown. First, I prepped the hair with Redken’s satinwear 02 and then created a natural center part and blow-dried the hair using a round brush. Next, I put a very natural movement through the hair using a large barrel curling iron. The crown was then placed on the head and secured by twisting side sections of the hair around the sides and back of the jewelry. Last, the back length of the hair was braided into a low loose braid using Redken’s braid aid 08 for extra grip,” -Guido



Get The Look:

Step One: Apply a nickel-size amount of Redken satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to damp hair

Step Two: Use fingers to create a natural part and then blow-dry using a round brush

Step Three: Bend random sections of hair around a 1-1/2 inch curling iron to add natural movement

Step Four: Place desired jewelry on head and secure by twisting sections of hair around it and adding hairpins if needed

Step Five: Apply a nickel-size amount of Redken braid aid 08 braid defining lotion from mid-lengths to ends of hair and then create a low, loose braid

Step Six: Finish with a mist of Redken wind blown 05 dry finishing spray all over for an airy, windswept effect

MFW SS 2015 Redken Roundup Dolce & Gabbana, Jil Sander, Roberto Cavalli


MFW SS 2015 Redken Roundup

Show: Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2015

Inspired by the modern-day Spanish woman, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a feminine, soft updo that captured the essence of the classic Dolce & Gabbana woman for their Spring/Summer 2015 show in Milan. Using Redken’s new wind blown 05 dry finishing spray to add airy texture to the hair before pulling it back into a loose bun with an effortless feeling. To finish the look, Guido adorned each model’s hair with rich floral arrangements and jewel-encrusted crowns, which have become a signature runway style look for Dolce & Gabbana.

“This look is very classically Dolce. It’s very soft, pretty and feminine – how girls want to look. I created these soft chignons with a Spanish feeling by using Redken’s wind blown 05 to create texture throughout the hair, and then pulled the hair back over the ears into a low, loose, sort of messy bun. It could look severe, but I’m doing it with my fingers to make it much softer for an overall feeling that’s very rich and luxurious.” Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Redken Products Used: Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer, satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion, wind blown 05 dry finishing spray

How To Create The Look:

  4. Spray wind blown 05 dry finishing spray all over hair to add airy texture.
  5. Pull hair over the ears and back into a loose bun.

  Show: Jil Sander Spring/Summer 2015

Redken Creative Consultant Guido captured the essence of the Jil Sander girl by creating a modern, androgynous hairstyle for the runway at the Spring/Summer 2015 show in Milan. To achieve this minimal, natural look, Guido used Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer and satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to create beautiful texture throughout the hair before blow-drying and adding his finishing touches.

“The Jil Sander girl is always sort of masculine-feminine and very boyish. This simple, modern hairstyle really captures the essence of that girl. I used Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer and satinwear 02 all over the hair to get that natural, beautiful texture. Then I blow-dried the hair, using my fingers to create a deep side part and tucked the hair behind the ears for a very masculine, boyish feeling.” Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

    Show: Roberto Cavalli Spring/Summer 2015

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created rich, natural hairstyle for Roberto Cavalli’s Spring/Summer 2015 show in Milan. To achieve this fresh-from-the-salon look, Guido used Pillow Proof Blow Dry express primer and satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to blow-dry the hair smooth, but leaving the length natural for a rich, luxurious finish.

 “It’s a very simple, minimal hairstyle at Cavalli this season, with a very rich feeling, almost like the girls just stepped out of the salon. I used satinwear 02 to blow-dry the hair smooth and then created a sort-of messy middle party with my fingers. After creating the part, I didn’t touch the hair again, so it feels very natural and luxurious with a little bit of sexiness.” Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
