There’s no denying it: Dolce&Gabbana have been behind some of the most remarkable fragrances of our generation.  But Devotion Eau de Parfum, the latest launch from Dolce&Gabbana Beauty, is the very first olfactory creation with the ambition to explore the fashion codes of the Italian fashion house. This luminous, bright gourmand fragrance—an original in its acclaimed lineup—is an ode to unbridled imagination and true craftsmanship all wrapped up in the quintessential Italian-ness that defines the brand.


Crafted by master perfumer Olivier Cresp, one of the most prolific fragrance creators to date, Devotion encapsulates the core values of the Dolce&Gabbana brand: a commitment to style, work, detail and the concept of contemporary fashion itself. Devotion—the feeling and the fragrance—is the spark that pushes us to pursue our passions, the gratitude that lives at the heart of our most cherished relationships.

Ultimately, the delicate intricacies of Devotion’s juice were inspired by a particularly memorable piece of panettone, the classic Italian sweet bread. So, how does this saccharine icon of Italian excellence play out in the luxuriously pink fragrance that is Devotion Eau de Parfum? Tantalizing heart notes of candied citrus are a good start. Much like the sweet jewels that dot the classic bread, this gourmand note offers a bright, zesty element before all else. What follows is fresh and delicate orange blossom, a lush scent that brings a solar feel to the heart of the fragrance. Finally, there’s a touch of warm, sensual Madagascar vanilla at the base that solidifies the sweet, sophisticated essence of Devotion. Blended together, this feminine fragrance is greater than the sum of its parts—epicurean ingredients that meet in complete harmony, delivering a divinely nostalgic trip for the senses.

In keeping with the fashion codes of the Dolce&Gabbana identity, Devotion is housed in a clean-lined bottle sealed by the Sacred Heart. A universal symbol of love, affection and, yes, devotion, it’s an iconic motif that represents everything the house, and the fragrance stand for. This feeling is captured in the fragrance’s dreamy film too: Katy Perry is vacationing on the azure island of Capri. She catches the eye of a model-like local fisherman and a story of love and devotion ensues. What’s more bellissima than that?
