Dolce&Gabbana Velvet Collection Celebrates Success of Tender Oud and Desert Oud


Following the success of its VELVET collection in the MEA market, DOLCE&GABBANA is expanding the distribution of VELVET TENDER OUD and VELVET DESERT OUD fragrances across the region.


From June 1st 2014, the fragrances will be available at selected stores, Paris Gallery, Sephora and Harvey Nichols across the Gulf.


Two new chapters in the history of the DOLCE&GABBANA VELVET collection. Two new fragrances inspired by the irresistible sensuality of the unknown.


VELVET TENDER OUD andVELVET DESERT OUD sweep you away on a sensory journey to faraway places that surprise the senses with contrasting and surprising fragrances.


The temptation of unexpected drama. The enticement of discovery. The seduction in revelation. The love of the chase.


The DOLCE&GABBANA VELVET collection features two new sensory experiences that are enticingly exotic and sweetly suffusive in nature.


“All that is mysterious arouses the senses”
(Stefano Gabbana)

Like a yearning for the Orient, VELVET TENDER OUD slowly unfurls in a voluptuous effusion of velvety, soft sweetness, revealing its heady, mysterious heart, one note at a time.


The fragrance opens on the sweet notes of almond which immediately stir the senses, trapping the instinct then wrapping it in a potent and velvety serenade of Damask rose essence and Rosa Centifolia.

Almonds and roses coalesce in a soave and mellifluous masterpiece, intoxicating and preparing the senses for the master stroke of the final mystery, where the intense, full-bodied Oud fuses with the lighter, dryer notes of wood. Exposing a secret heart that is candid and revealing. With an enduring and provocative persistence that intoxicates, entices and seduces.




“Nothing is more exciting than the chase”
(Domenico Dolce)

Like a fragrant breeze blowing through the dunes of Middle Eastern deserts, VELVET DESERT OUD floods the senses, permeating so quickly and so powerfully that the chase ultimately becomes an unconditional and comforting conquest.


The fragrance opens on a heady wave of incense, almost as if to forewarn: incense is the quintessential perfume of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern lands, intoxicating, permeating and seducing, with no hesitations. A call to action heralding the rich smoky tones of the dark wood and mysterious deep ambery notes that follow.

Perception dissolves in the final celebration of the soft musky notes, leaving the hot, heady aroma of a successful conquest lingering on the skin.
