Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is an iconic fragrance that was created in 2001. It pays homage to the country of origin of the brand‘s founders: Italy. In 2007, it first became a men’s fragrance.

Even today, Dolce & Gabbana’s Italian road trip continues, and the duo have decided to immerse us for the second time in their history in the heart of the island of Capri. Focus on Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest.
Light Blue Italian Zest, a fragrance very inspired by Capri
This time, it is on the island of Capri that Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbanahave decided to put down their suitcases. To give you a sense of the place, it is an island located in the Bay of Naples, just in front of the Sorrento peninsula, in the south of Italy. This unique place has been known since Antiquity for its beauty. It was already a holiday resort in Roman times. Even today, tourists flock there in large numbers, and Capri is the pride of Italians. Barely 6 km long, Capri has only 17 km of coastline. Yet that was enough to create general wonder. The interior of the island, meanwhile, is filled with citrus fields. This is precisely what inspired the creation of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest. A single breath of this juice transports us to the heart of this plant setting, and floods our daily lives with the joyful luminosity of Calabrian lemon.
Dolce & Gabbana opt for an understated bottle
Let’s start by taking a closer look at the bottle of this perfume. Indeed, it says a lot about the composition of this new juice. Its silhouette remained faithful to previous versions of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. However, its transparency and frosted glass of yesteryear have given way to a vibrant yellow. This foreshadows its sweet scent of lemon. Its blue and playful writing, meanwhile, is intended to reveal the Italian sky and the sea waves.
The lemony breath of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest
On the scent side, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest highlights one of the most famous Italian ingredients: Calabrian lemon. Its smell is obtained by expressing its zest. In other words, Dolce & Gabbana directly extracted the essential oil contained in its bark from it. The result is a scent that wonderfully translates the fresh breath of a citrus field. While lively, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest nevertheless associates this citrus fruit with a more oriental accord, which gives it more character. Thus, mixing ardor and determination, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest is a perfume that perfectly portrays the typical temperament of Mediterranean women .
