Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Garden Eau de Parfum Haul

Dolce Garden is a delicious new flower blossoming in a Sicilian garden. A joyful, solar aura blending citrus and cream. With Dolce Garden, the frangipani blossom joins the delightful bouquet of the Dolce family.

Did they actually put any thought into the ad for Dolce Garden? The ad seems quite… cheesy, like something you would’ve seen on tv in the late 80’s or early 90’s lol Heck, even the name and packaging seem like a such mismatch for the undeniably tropical scent.

I actually got a sample of Dolce Garden Eau de Parfum earlier from Nordstrom with a previous order (here), and instantly fell in love, to the extent that I vowed to purchase the full size (first chance I got), which was exactly what I did! Plus, I got a very sweet discount to boot!

Note to local stores: This is how to properly utilize samples. People sample the samples, and end up actually purchasing the product! See how that works?

Nordstrom December Haulage

I was really happy with my previous haulage from Nordstrom (here) so when I noticed that they were having another really cool promo, I decided to place another order. Plus, it was mah birthday (not that I needed an excuse to shop, since we’ve already established that I’m clearly a shopaholic). Basically, the promo was if you spent $135 (around KD 40) on Fragrances (including Eau de Toilettes and Eau de Perfumes and even Scented Candles), you qualified for the Gift With Purchase, which happened to be a pack of Fragrance Samples (haulage here)! As you can see, the items arrived individually wrapped in packing paper, in a rather large (practically empty) cardboard box also stuffed with packing paper. It’s not pretty, but hey, it works (everything arrived safely and undamaged)!
