Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue | Love in Capri & Beauty of Capri

September 8, 2016

I’m obsessed with Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. It’s a beautiful scent that will always be one of my most adored fragrances! That’s why I’m always over the moon that every year, Dolce & Gabbana explore the beauty of the Italian coastline, to bring out a new limited edition Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue scent.

Last year it was Sunset in Salina and Swimming in Lipari (for the guys), and this year’s limited edition Light Blue is all about the Love and Beauty of Capri; The picturesque island where the iconic love story of Light Blue first began.

Remember the ad with the smouldering Adonis of David Gandy and beauty of Bianca Balti?

Remember that? Who could forget?!

Enough oogling, let’s get into this year’s limited editions that celebrate the enchanting beauty of the island of Capri.

For the ladies, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Love in Capri 

A sexy, seductive white floral, laced with an aromatic hue of springtime notes that blossom in Capri.

dolce-gabbana-light-blue-pour-femme-love-in-capri-fragrance-stylescoop-beauty-blog-south-africa-reviewLove in Capri smells similar, yet very different to the original Light Blue. While the original is light and breezy, Light Blue Love in Capri is more seductive and spicy – just the way I like it!

When I first sniffed Love in Capri, I could immediately place it as a Dolce & Gabbana scent. It just had that Light Blue something. However, when I compared Love in Capri with the original, I thought they smelt totally different.

I know, weird right?

Love in Capri opens with top notes of Lemon and Mandarin. The heart combines Jasmine, Heliotrope, Honeysuckle Accord and Almond Blossom, that give it a rich, sensual sweetness. To finish off, the dry down has a base of warm, musky notes combined with Cedar Wood and Dry Amber.

On me, the sweet honeysuckle, jasmine and lemon were most prominent and I love, love, love the woody-musky dry down notes.

It’s a gorgeous scent that takes me back to hot and smouldering European summers on the Greek Islands. Summers, where the sun bakes though your skin, and the enhanced smell of vivid blooms combine with the smell of the Mediterranean waters.

It only comes as an EDT, but was surprisingly long-lasting on me!

A perfect scent for my summer fragrance collection!

For the guys… Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Beauty of Capri

A glistening men’s fragrance that captures the Beauty of Capri’s rocky silhouettes of the coast, to the green woodland that overlooks the sea.

Beauty of Capri smells fresh, summery and very, very sexy! It has a beautiful burst of freshness, with a sexy, crisp bitterness.

The top notes include Cedrat, Bitter Orange and Sicilian Bergamot. In the heart lies sweet smelling Neroli, Fresh Marine and vibrant Sichuan Pepper. And the base finishes off with, a powerful woody musky combination of Cedar Wood, Vetiver, Resinous Myrrh and Musk Notes.

I don’t think the guys could go wrong with this as their summer scent.
