For Him

First came Pour Femme: the classic fragrance that embodied in scent the harmonies and contrasts at the heart of the Dolce&Gabbana DNA. The traditional and the contemporary, the passionate and the maternal, the spiritual and the sensual: this is a world where all converge with a perfect synthesis that is unmistakably Dolce&Gabbana.
Now, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showcase these values in their most potent form, with new Dolce&Gabbana Intense. Inspired by the richness and depth of signature eau de parfums of the past, Intense is a heady celebration of the power of scent to evoke, to incite and to command.

“Deep within the soul of the Dolce&Gabbana woman lies a potent force: a power and passion that is voluptuous in its intensity. The moments when this force is ignited, are the moments for Intense.” Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana

The fragrance
Intense is a strong alchemy of refined and powerfully addictive contrasts. The heightened potency of this oriental floral ignites the senses, as unashamedly provocative notes of vaporous white flowers evoke long-forgotten memories and incite deep passion.

Subtle hints of Neroli and Green Mandarin initially, yield to the rich opulence and intriguing contrast of two noble white flowers, Orange Blossom and Tuberose. The creamy and enveloping qualities of the Orange Flower plays alongside the deep voracious trail of Tuberose. Giving an intense full-bodied feminine signature to the fragrance, that turns-heads and intrigues.

With the dry down trail comes the final surrender, the intensity and strength, the ecstasy for beauty. The warm resinous Sandal wood and the sensual musky notes that blend irresistibly with the creamy addiction of the Guivmauve, defining a powerful presence of captivating sensuality.

The packaging
Intense’s luxurious packaging juxtaposes sensual opulence with intimate spirituality. Its regal dark velvet packaging, soft to the touch, takes inspiration from the sumptuous velvet drapery once used to adorn the interiors of palaces in Sicily. The richly coloured, almost opaque burgundy glass — a favourite hue of the atelier — heightens the mood of drama.

Statuesque with elegant shoulders that form precise angles, the bottle’s striking silhouette features a solid gold collar and burgundy cap.

The testimonial: Laetitia Casta
With her soulful crystalline blue eyes that smoulder under thick lashes, full lips and feminine curves. Laetitia Casta bewitches with exquisite Mediterranean sensual appeal. Following her role in the advertising campaign for Dolce&Gabbana Pour Femme, the French model and actress returns for the story’s next chapter, representing the Dolce&Gabbana woman at her most Intense.

“Laetitia Casta is the perfect embodiment of the quintessential Dolce&Gabbana woman, in all her incarnations: all of them Intense.” Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana

The campaign
Laetitia Casta is mesmerising in the print campaign as she lays bare the emotions of Intense through her strong character. An enduring symbol of the spirit of the Dolce&Gabbana woman, this portrayal is her most compelling and evocative yet.
Continuing the story that began in the Dolce&Gabbana Pour Femme campaign, where two lovers shared an intimate moment on the beach; Intense unveils the next chapter, as the day dissolves into night. Shot by Mario Testino, the campaign invites us to watch a private and intensely impassioned moment between the lovers. Wrapped in a heated embrace, Laetitia Casta and internationally renowned model Noah Mills are electrifying. The spark that ignited the lovers in Dolce&Gabbana Pour Femme is now ablaze with Intense passion.
