Finding your perfect scent among the sea of women’s perfume can be an overwhelming process, especially if you have no idea where to begin. After months of searching I came across a line of Dolce & Gabana perfume and fell in love with No. 18 La Lune and knew that I had to have it.
Do not be turned off by the price tag on Dolce & Gabana perfumes – they are easy enough to find from discount sellers, and no these are not knockoffs (however, be very careful about who and where you are buying from)! My heart sank a bit in Sephora when I saw that this incredible perfume only came in one size (3.4 Fl oz) and was $65.00 for such a small amount. Not even close to some of the swankier brands, but a little bit much for my tight college-student budget. Thankfully, I was able to find it for about $40.00 which I consider much more reasonable for me.
La Lune is much different than the other fragrances in the line. La Lune has a fresh rosey scent with definite floral and woodsy notes. It works perfectly for daytime and nighttime, and so I tend to wear it to class and out to dinner, events and nightclubs. There is something mysterious about it as well. I wear it as a female and so, to me, it smells girly. But I have heard from others who have owned it that it seems like a unisex scent. To be honest if a man walked past me, smelling like this, it would be a turn off. La Lune is light and feminine without being strongly overpowering like so many other women’s perfumes.
There is only one problem that I have found with Dolce & Gabana’s La Lune over the several months that I have been using it. The problem being, that the scent does not last too long. I find myself reapplying the perfume usually once a day after the initial application. This can be both good and bad, though: good, because it means that the scent is light and not overwhelming enough to knock you and everyone around you out. Bad, because after a few hours you can smell it only faintly. If you are a person who enjoys being able to apply a perfume once and have the scent last, this line is probably not for you. However, I applied La Lune once this morning and here at almost 10 o clock at night I can still smell it! For my preferences, this perfume is perfect and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a new scent for any season, day or night!
