One of the most iconic designer fragrances around has got to be the charming and seasonless Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. It’s delicate enough to spritz on for any occasion – but to me, it always stands out in a crowd. But the excitement rises! This summer, the designer label is releasing a special edition version of their original favorite – called Light Blue Italian Zest. This fragrance, in men’s and women’s editions, brings an added pop of citrus into the mix.
“Dolce & Gabbana adds a fresh twist to its cult scents Light Blue [first launched in 2001] and Light Blue pour Homme  with a new summer Limited Edition: Italian Zest, inspired by the Italian scorza di limone – lemon zest,” the brand announced on its website. “These new fragrances celebrate the joyfulness of a sunny Summer day in Capri. Brightened with lavish essences of Italian best quality citruses harvested in flourishing fields – lemon for her, bergamot for him – the Italian Zest Limited Edition offers a rich olfactive experience that evokes Light Blue and Light Blue pour Homme’s unique fizzy scent.”
“The fragrance opens with Light Blue’s signature notes of Sicilian cedar and Granny Smith apple brightened by a generous dose of tangy primofiore lemon,” Dolce & Gabbana added about the new Light Blue Italian Zest. “The radiant heart melts notes of glowing white rose with tender jasmine petals. The base offers a lustrous combination of ambery notes and warm musks.”
Light Blue Italian Zest Pour Homme “opens with a chilled cocktail of grapefruit and mandarin, enriched by the essence of fresh bergamot,” the brand shared. “The heart combines pepper and juniper facets that add a spicy tang to the rosemary and rosewood notes. The powerful base combines vibrant incense and musk notes.”
It all sounds delightful and refreshing for those summer months ahead! Be sure to shop your own bottle before the limited edition supply runs out.— Kristine Hope Kowalski
