Dolce and Gabbana L’Impératrice 3 Review

L’Impératrice means The Empress in French, which reminds one of a dark, woody, oriental fragrance fit for a queen. D&G L’Impératrice is the total opposite of this. Playful, clean, fruity but not too sweet, it's the perfect scent to welcome summers.

 I love watermelon and must applause the watermelon note used in this. Mostly watermelon in scents tend to smell excessively sweet and artificial, but here the juiciness and watery freshness of a perfectly ripe,watermelon is captured perfectly.

 L’Impératrice 3 is a  fruity, linear scent on me, with a hint of tart Rhubarb. None of the floral notes make an appearance which is a tad bit disappointing, as I would have loved to experience the blooming of jasmine to give the scent some depth. I'm not complaining though. I'm enjoying this delicious mix of watermelon/kiwi/rhubarb cocktail with a bit of creamy musk in the drydown.
The lasting power is less than average, it is a eau de toilette after all, but I find the heavy, chunky glass bottle hard to carry around in a bag for reapplication. And yes!reapply you must, many, many times throughout the day. That said, D&G L'Imperatrice is indeed a summer fragrance that's easy to wear and inoffensive to most people's noses. 
Category: fruity/floral/aquatic
Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Kiwi , Rhubarb
Middle Notes: Jasmine, Cyclamen, Watermelon
Base Notes: Musk, Sandalwood, Lemon Tree
Good for: Spring/summer. Day/casual.
Dolce and Gabanna L’Impératrice 3 is part of their Anthology line, and is available in 300ml EDT for $55 to $80.

So if summertime to you means lazing outdoors with a good book,the sound of water sprinklers, the scent of cut grass, the clinking of ice in a lemonade pitcher, and cold juicy watermelon wedges, then give this fragrance a try.

I bought the D & G Coffret with these scents when it first came out, and while they are lovely to mix and match with (I like combining La Lune with L'Imperatrice), this is my absolute favorite to wear on its own! It's such a feminine scent. I hadn't thought about it as being linear, but I completely agree; I think that helps these scents layer well, and I think that's part of why this smells kind of sweet and innocent to me. Thanks for the review!
