The original Light Blue EDT from Dolce & Gabbana launched back in 2001 and has established itself as a truly iconic scent. With its fresh, crisp vibrancy and notes of Granny Smith apple, jasmine and delicate white rose it truly is a classic.
Excitingly, this spring saw the launch of the limited edition Dolce & Gabbana light Blue Italian Zest – a lighter version of the original Light Blue, with includes a generous dose of tangy Calabrian lemon.
The scent is inspired by lemon zest and celebrates the joyfulness of a sunny Summer day in Capri – one the most beautiful Italian islands. This fragrance combines the Italian passion for haute perfumery and the spirit of the endless sunny days in the South of Italy full of irresistible flavors and strong emotions.
The lemon essence used in Light Blue Italian Zest is extracted from hand-harvested lemons that grow from the tree’s first bloom and considered the very best quality due to their intense taste. Both the zest and pulp are sensitive to the heat and need to be squeezed according to an ancestral cold pressing technique called ‘sfumatrice’, that ensures a true-to-nature essence with gourmand facets.
Brightened by the tangy citrus, Light Blue’s signature Sicilian cedar and Granny Smith apple top notes become even fruiter and juicier. The glowing white rose and jasmine petal heart is more radiant than ever. Its trail of ambery notes and warm musk becomes even more intense.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest has a clean and fresh citrus opening that slowly settles down and blends with the signature notes of Light Blue. The dry down is warm and sexy, with a hint of white flowers and musk that beautifully balance the intensity of the lemon.
While we can’t all jump on a plane and vacation in Capri, this beautiful scent brings a bit of the island to us. Make sure you give it a whiff.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest is available exclusively at Edgars and retails for R1560 for a 100ml EDT.
