An endless source of inspiration for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, the starting point of all their projects: the land of colours, tastes and villages feasts they keep coming back to. Their roots and their future. A fragrance dedicated to this passion could have no other name: Sicily. The name of a magical island, in all its contrasts. Dark as the black rocks of Mount Etna, its pulsing, explosive heart.

Bright as the Mediterranean sun glinting off the blue sea. Rich as its magnificent palazzos. As passionate as its women, instinctive, sensual and fiercely in love with life. Sicily is the expression of absolute femininity, the essence of the marvellous island.

Introduced in 2003, the original Sicily holds a very special place in the heart of the Designers. A true expression of the Sicilian soul. Today, the new Dolce&Gabbana Sicily is inspired by the scents cherished by the Designers as a reminiscence of their travels and cultural heritage, it is the ideal showcase for a fragrance named after this magnificent island. For the occasion, Sicily is revisited by the master perfumer Nathalie Lorson, who composed the original edition. Enriched with noble Mediterranean ingredients, the scent finds its fullest, most sensual expression.

The scent of a woman

A citrusy floral essence that evokes the scent of freshly laundered linen drying in the sun, Sicilian Bergamot, delicately cold-pressed from the golden peel, conjures the island’s sun-drenched citrus groves. A solar honeysuckle note adds a touch of sweetness. In the intensely feminine heart notes, a black rose accord brings out the radiance of a rare Grasse jasmine absolute. Picked at dawn when the blossoms are the most fragrant, this is the headiest variety of jasmine, chosen for its power and sensuality. The powdery scent of heliotrope, blended with a creamy sandalwood essence, evokes Sicily’s delectable almond pastries. The musky drydown hints at darker passions. Sicily reflects the contrasted beauty of the island that inspires it. As voluptuous as the body of a woman, veiled yet revealed.

A stark contrast of black and gold

Essentially elegant. Inspired by the precious enamel used for the luxurious accessories, the black cap tops the spare, assertive lines of the solid yet refined bottle. A bold black label bearing “Dolce&Gabbana SICILY”, engraved in gold, brings out the scent’s solar radiance. A black velvet coffret, also adorned with the label, holds the weighty glass flacon.
