Signature Fragrance Reviews


I feel like that list of notes doesn't match what's really going on with this fragrance. Like the original DK it's primarily a suede fragrance, rounded out with florals and amber. I find it has a weird almost rubbery or diesel type note when first sprayed but that disappears into the mix quite quickly. The white florals are a blend, not obviously any one in particular. It would sit in a family that includes Bandit, although it's sweeter, friendlier. It still has a slight masculine edge, but no more than, say, Coco Mademoiselle, and there isn't obviously patchouli in it to my nose. I smell labdanum, and probably benzoin. A sophisticated fragrance that can easily be worn day/night/casual/dress.


Donna Karan must really love her dark, woodsy scents. Donna Karan, (the re-released version in a tall, black cylindrical bottle), may not be as popular or as bold as Black Cashmere or Chaos, but it is a remarkable scent on its own.

Donna Karan opens with a surprisingly soft, almost soapy blend of fruits and flowers. The fruits are so mild in this composition that it comes nowhere near the fruity concoctions found while smelling the DKNY range.

As the fragrance settles, Donna Karan develops into a rather heady and warm blend of dark florals, earthy patchouli, thick resins and smoky woods. I believe if it wasn't for the sugary vanilla note in the heart and drydown, this fragrance would smell quite masculine and thick.

This fragrance is sexy, but in a rather subtle fashion. The scent speaks confidence, power and maturity. From what I've experienced from both Donna Karan's fragrance range and the DKNY's releases, real women wear Donna Karan and young girls, DKNY.

Despite its dominant woodsiness and complexity, Donna Karan is rather clean smelling too. It is very unlike Black Cashmere and Chaos, which tend to be very animalic and dirty in a sense. This is the kind of fragrance I would wear to an office in Winter, that is, if I worked in an enclosed atmosphere.

The lasting power is very good, and the sillage is average to moderately strong. In all honesty I do prefer Donna Karan's stronger blends, however Donna Karan Signature is just as worthy of being re-released as all the others.


You can get it at Neiman Marcus, or on their web site.
