Dolce And Gabbana Light Blue EDT Fragrance Review

Once the warmer weather is here one of my go to bottles of fragrance to wear has to be Dolce And Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme.

It’s now a pretty old scent, and was released back in 2007. Still, it smells modern and is perfect for spring and summer.

Here’s what you need to know, including what Light Blue Pour Homme smells like.

What Does Dolce And Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme Smell Like?

Dolce And Gabbana Light Blue has that clean and crisp cutting smell, making it a inoffensive scent. It’s perfect for the day time, in fact perfect for every day. The grapefruit and bergamot are at the top, with a touch of pepper in the middle, oakmoss and musk in the base.

It has some hints of citrus and light fruity notes, with smaller hints of wood.

One of the best things about this is that it’s universal, you can be confident that nobody is going to think that you smell bad. It’s not niche, it’s got that smell which everyone will just find really pleasant.

Although it’s light, it’s still there, and people will notice you’re wearing something nice, so you’re likely to get compliments.

How Long Does Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Last?

For the longevity, this can last 4-5 hours, which is a fairly reasonable amount of time, considering this is an eau de toilette. As with most fragrances of this style, the longevity is fair, but not the best.

The projection is not great, but that goes without saying for a light scent.

The Dolce And Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme Bottle

I got myself a 50ml bottle which is pretty standard size for a bottle of aftershave. The bottle shape style is unique, with a translucent clear glass and elegant branding to the front. The atomiser is good, with nice coverage from a spray.

When To Wear D&G Light Blue

D&G Light Blue is definitely suited best to spring and summer. The nature of this scent gives off some warm weather vibes, making it a good choice to these seasons.

It’s also quite a casual scent too, making it one to wear during the day rather than on an evening.

What Clothes To Wear With D&G Light Blue?

Since this is a summery and casual style of scent, it works really well with casual clothing. Think of T-shirts, shorts and chinos. Whatever you wear during the daytime, it’s going to be well suited to this scent.

It can work as a summer office scent too, with it’s light and inoffensive smell. One occasion this isn’t best suited to are formal situations where there are better alternatives.

Who Is D&G Light Blue Pour Homme For?

Light Blue has a wide range of guys that it’s suited to. It can be seen as a younger scent, but only because of it’s style being so inoffensive. But if you’re older, this can still work well as it’s such a universal smell that anyone can wear.

If you’re in the market for an every day scent, or want something lighter than your usual go to bottle, Dolce And Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme is definitely worth a smell.
