Review of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue: A Contemporary Floral Perfume

Updated on February 20, 2012

Columns, the little black dress, and romance. What do these things have in common with Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue? Timelessness. Classic works of art manage to find new meanings when an era comes to a close. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue does just this as other perfumes pale into irrelevance. The insanely refreshing notes of Light Blue seem to be on point whenever a new fragrance trend comes around. Read on to discover why Light Blue stands the tests of time.

For the past 10 years, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue has dominated perfume sales. Each generation seemed to find something inspiring with each new spritz of the classic Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue formula. This aquatic perfume, featuring an animated feminine twist, was inspired by the Mediterranean waters of Domenico Dolce's home. The relaxed seaside environment draws out sensuality and femininity. Capturing that sun and sea in a bottle, Light Blue is a measured mix of clean and fresh.

Light Blue perfume includes notes of Sicilian citron, bluebell, Granny Smith apple, jasmine, bamboo, white rose, cedarwood, amber, and musk.

With an initial spritz, Light Blue opens with a crisp citrus spray, straight from the peel of a freshly picked Sicilian orange. The zingy freshness is filled out with the tart notes of a Granny Smith apple. Like the apple itself, Light Blue is delicately balanced between the tart notes of the peel and the floral crunch of the flesh. As soon as the juicy crunch of citrus and fruit has made its point, the juice slowly turns into something lovely and feminine. The simple floral heart is structured by a beautiful white rose. But the floral femininity is kept in check with the clean airiness of bamboo and bluebells. This scent flows from an aquatic, to a floral, from a citrus scents, to a fresh fruity scent. Light Blue is youthful but sensual. Light but sophisticated. Fresh but deep. This perfume straddles genres to be something completely unique.

For many women, Dolce & Gabbana is a fresh way to wear a classy floral perfume. Unlike the older floral perfumes that integrate notes of heavy amber (ahem, the 1980s) or dollops of powder (hello, 1950s!), Light Blue updates the floral perfume for the new millennium. And it looks like they did it right!
