In an interview, Di Viao revealed that K by Dolce&Gabbana "reminds me of this little wooden house in Sardinia my family used to stay in when I was a child. It had loads of trees at the front and the sea and mountains. There was a cozy fireplace that we would sit around at night. My parents had to work hard so this was one of the few times we were all together."
Created by two renowned French perfumers, Daphné Bugey and Nathalie Lorson, the fragrance creates a vibrant cresendo of citruses, with fiery aromatics and sophisticated woods.
The fragrance features top notes of Sicilian lemon and sparkling blood orange with juniper berry. Its heart includes amber accents with clary sage, geranium, lavandin, and pimento essence. A base of cedarwood, vetiver, and patchouli round out the fragrance suited for a modern day king.
The bottle's chiseled geometric design features a modern day crown encircled with blue stone-like orbs, set beneath a blue lapis dome—each also unique, resulting from a process that recreates the natural marbling of the stone. Each handcrafted cap is unique, the crown overlaid with particles of 24-carat gold and then individually aged to a distinct patina.
