Dolce & Gabbana’s Velvet Collection fragrances Velvet Tender Oud and Velvet Desert Oud are pleasantly surprising in scent and quality. I loved them upon first sniff and they are excellent perfumes. But when you have your fragrance wardrobe full of oud fragrances and rose and oud combo perfumes are these two worth adding to your collection?
Velvet Tender Oud and Velvet Desert Oud smell excellent as I mentioned it already and perhaps they are worth owning if you don’t have any other similar fragrances or perfumes in your collection but if you do I think you better think twice.
What a masterpiece is Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle. It’s truly one of the best rose based scents that I own and the cool unique thing about Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle is that it’s not too rosey of a rose scent.
Frederic Malle Portrait Of A Lady has just the right amount of incense, patchouli, cloves and cinnamon with the rose that it makes it a spicy, warm and beautiful Oriental perfume. Even though Portrait Of A Lady by Frederic Malle is targeted to women I think it’s unisex enough to be worn by men. Portrait Of A Lady uses the most beautiful Turkish roses to create this masterpiece of a perfume. Portrait of a Lady is very high quality and very expensive but don’t pass this perfume off as a feminine rose dominant perfume it’s very masculine in fact I believe it should be targeted unisex but we can’t help that now.
