Dolce & Gabbana have had their share of hits, such as the Light Blue and The One lines. However, their K line was not one of them, at least in the fragrance community. I have heard it has done well outside of that. I have admittedly not smelled it. Now the famous Italian designer has released a female counterpart to K, called Q, which undoubtedly stands for Queen.
Q is no doubt the brand’s take on the cherry trend which seems to be the buzz right now. An opening of Sicilian lemon with sensual jasmine gives way to a heart of sour cherry with the vanillic haze of heliotrope. Soft cedar lies in the base accented by cottony crystal musk. The scent is penned by Daphne Bugey.
The woody fruity scent is meant to allow everyday women to feel like a queen. I personally don’t think that women need a fragrance to be a queen, but that is neither here nor there. It’s a noble concept and I can’t fault it for that. How many cherry scents do we need?
I guess we need more, and I am not convinced that this will tread far enough outside of the territory of the others before it, but hey, at least it has a nice bottle and will be more affordable, so I guess that works for many women…and even some men who will surely be interested in this since it might read as unisex judging by the note breakdown.
I do think they nailed the bottle on this one, a red royal crown cap adorned with gold, along with a pink fragrance that looks classy and not too overdone. The aesthetic is pleasing, but the extra crown on the glass part of the bottle isn’t needed. You already have a crown cap, so that association is already imparted.
You could have been more minimalist with the text on the bottle, but that is just me being picky. Q Eau de Parfum comes in a 50ml size for £86 and a 100ml size for £115 on the Dolce & Gabbana website
