D&G Light Blue Fragrance Reviews

I liked this when it came out. Now there are a lot of perfumes similar to Light Blue that I don't find any uniqueness on it. But still a good perfume for a summer or spring day. It has a good complexion of flowers and musk.

I got this for christmas last December and was very excited...then I tried it. Huge disappointment for me. I know its my chemistry because it smells soooo good on other people. Its fresh and clean apples and lemon to start; after about an hour all i get is a flat, faint cedar. No amber, no rose. But, again I think its just my chemistry.

I soon as I smelled my sample I realized how many times I've already smelled this, and I understand why. It's fresh, clean and bright, easily worn by most everyone and inoffensive to most anyone. Sounds nice enough but not exactly exciting, right? But I think I'm slowly falling in love with this. I've tried it twice. Once more and I may be compelled to pick up a bottle, popularity be damned.

It starts off a little cool and aquatic on me, notes I don't usually particularly care for. These types of fragrances don't suit my personality well... or so I assumed. It's the lemon that intrigues me from the start because it's so well done. I love lemon but it's used almost ubiquitously in household cleaners and products, making it a hard note to use without evoking thoughts of Pledge, Pine Sol, and the awkwardly sized pills my back requires after a full day of housework. But I digress.

This lemon smells only mildly synthetic, and that's when I scrunch my brow in an attempt to focus on it. Without straining my senses it's a freshly cut lemon, lightly sprinkled with sugar, laid out on a plate in the sun, ready to be squeezed into an icy glass filled with whatever beverage they consume in Paradise. Oh, and all this takes place on a beach beside the still waters of an Italian grotto. Che bello.

It's linear on me, and I don't say that by way of a backhanded insult. The only change being that it wears progressively sweeter on me. Naturally.

A modern classic.

Darn you, Light Blue. Darn you to heck. I love you.

Edited to add: This is a backdoor gourmand on me. I don't get the overabundance of cedar that some seem to suffer from. It's not even close to unisex, let alone masculine. So I guess there's nothing to it but to try it on yourself and see how it wears on you.

This smells to me like burnt sugar, lemon, gardinias, and a peppery spicy cedar with salt. It reminds me of the beachside. It is very classy. On my skin it is quite linear and lasts about 4 hours. I admit that I only like it in very hot, humid weather weather otherwise the sweet note is too pronounced and overwhelming to me.

Had this for a few weeks but still a not quite spring here and really got this for hot summertime and traveling or daytrips to the city.
Not sure about longevity yet as I've only had it on a few minutes.
The reason I'm trying this out early today is it seemed like a good idea since I picked up some horrible flu bug yesterday and feel quite nauseous today after a night spent expelling all I had in me from both ends.
This is fresh, I have to say. I'll probably add to this review when summer hits but for now I'll say I think its exactly what I was hoping for. fresh not offensive, holiday, summer scent. perfect for car or plane travel, uplifting, may even combat some nausea.
The video addvert with the dude in white budgie smugglers made me laugh out loud hahha but its kind of right somehow. This scent feels... hmmm refined and not cheep with ocean and summer. I reserve my opinion about sexy.

I have tried... I've really tried not to wear this anymore. I've spent over a year avoiding it, because it's as ubiquitous as Acqua di Giò. I have about 30 fragrances (I know, not a lot compared to other collections, but they're a lot to me), and I have sampled loads of other perfumes, trying to find my "Holy Grail". While I probably won't ever find "the one", I must say that Light Blue is the closest thing to a signature scent I've had, so far. And I've started wearing it again. I don't care anymore. I love it, and I'll buy another bottle when I run out of it.

I was beside another lady at work one day and I noticed a very delightful aroma coming from her direction. I had to ask what it was because it was unlike any fragrance I'd experienced before. She smiled and told me it was Light Blue. Well I made it a point to visit Dillard's not long after so I could test it. I did and oh my ! What happened ? This beautiful charmer turned on me like a rabid animal. It was sharp and pungent, like a bowl of citrus that was long past its sampling. Not at all like the sweet nectar I remembered.
To all the fans of this, I'm sorry because this truly is nice. But on me, its anything but.

So I must say I am reviewing this just simply because of how surprised I was on how this perfume reacted to me. No, I don't like it. I almost feel guilty for feeling that way though because through the fragrance profile it carries I should. At first spray it's refreshing and definitely aquatic, green and then white floral. This sounds good to me, but only after about 10 minutes it starts to smell foul. Musk is not usually a bad note to me, but this one was bad. I don't usually react to perfumes this way so I got a sample vial at the beauty counter and the same thing happened. I own many perfumes and can say this is the only one that turns on me so that I have to wash it off. It's too bad as the initial scent is very lively. My advice is to test it out for a day if you can before purchasing.

I love the clean crisp citrus-y freshness that is immediately present in this fragrance, but very quickly it is joined by an offensive pine needle, dill pickle stench. I usually like my fragrances to have a little bit of a "stank" to them but this isn't grungy or earthy, it is pungent and borderline foul. Overall, I can't say I hate Light Blue, but that one note (whatever it is) is distracting and definitely takes it down a few notches for me. Also, this is not a very versatile scent, but it fits in well on a warm summer day.

I can wear it, but it has strong citrus note that can be sharp in hot weather. I can smell also bamboo, apple and some breezy note, like marine. I think it can be a bit nauseating, so better don't over-spray it in high temperatures.

I so wish that my body chemistry worked with this scent. A woman I work with wears it and it smells amazing and fresh. Going based on that fact alone I bought a big bottle and was so eager to begin wearing it. It was terrible. Very masculine on me. I am new to finding out what works for me very well and what turns. I am beginning to think that my body doesn't like cedar. Shame.....

Very fresh and sweet in a way. This would be a perfect ocean smell if it had a little more salty notes in it. For me this came out a bit masculine too. A man could pull this of.

Light Blue is perfect for this time of year where I live. I am by the ocean and the minute I walk out the door I am hit with high humidity and heat and I am sweating.
I thought I must get a light citrus scent. I grabbed Light Blue read the reviews and then sprayed it on. Perfect. A big splash of lemon; then cedar and apple and later a bit of rose, great!
Light Blue is perfect for summer.
Citrus fragrances do not usually work well with my skin, I have tried many. This was just what I needed. A Love.

Not an outstanding fragrance really, however I love it. Very fresh and citrusy. Good sillage and okay longevity, on me anyway. Suitable for both day and night, all year around but especially for summer. Don´t think it´s too sweet, more sour. I bought it a few years ago and now I´m crawing for it again. :-) It´s a bit addicting and every time I smell it on someone else I love it! It reminds me of Versace Yellow Diamond. I think it´s modern and suits both young and old.

Very popular summer fragrance indeed! I tested this today and I can see why it's excellent in the summer.

Light Blue's opening is very fresh--citrus without a lot of sweetness. Strangely, even though it's not listed in the notes, I could detect a hint of sea in it too, making it almost aquatic, but it was very faint and it was quickly enveloped by other notes. As it develops, it becomes sweeter and more mellow. Sweet lemon, apple, bamboo and cedar are still detected after a few hours. Longevity is good and sillage is just nice.

Overall, it's very lovely and I can see why it's very popular in the summer. If I have to describe the scent succinctly it'd be "sweet sea smell". I've always loved sea smell and I really love how it mixes in this one, and I'm quite excited to probably buy a bottle of this should I finish one of the bottles in my current collection.

The scent that launched a thousand lesser copies....

LB is so popular, that you HAVE smelled it, even if you weren't aware of it. Because it is so popular and widely-worn, I think this increases the likelihood that an individual will have a personal memory associated with it. I also think this accounts for many people's strong negative feelings about LB.

In my case, I have lovely memories of sharing a bottle of LB with my roommate while we lived in Florence on a semester abroad in the early 2000s (right after it was released aka before the market was saturated with users and copies). So for me- LB is all about the warm fuzzies.

I actually hesitated buying my own bottle until a year or so ago, bc I still associated it as "someone else's signature scent." Obviously...I got over it.

Do I use it all the time? No. But I feel great when I do wear it.

As i see the reviews and the love/like rating, turnes out that i'm sucker for disliking this one. My taste is totally different from that. The fragrance is not good for young women, it's too heavy and explodes from citruses. I could say it's kinda unisex. The lemon smell is so sharp, that any other scent is just fading. Call me tasteless, but this is just so freaking headaching ...

Just got this one at a local Marshalls, a 100ml bottle for $70! I've wanted this one for a LONG time, and I'm so glad to finally have it!

When I first smelled the scent, the burst of citrus notes hits immediately, and it smells so fresh and crisp. After wearing it for a little while, I have to say, the fragrance that smells most similar to me is Tattoo my Michael Germain!

The citrus blends really well with a woody, sweet scent that gives the fragrance more body and complexity that I really love.

From smelling this off the bottle, I would have expected this fragrance to be a little stronger on me than it actually is. You can smell it from a little bit away, but it certainly does not fill a room.

Overall, I am really satisfied with this classic fragrance, and I would recommend this one to anyone who likes fresh, citrus scents!

I feel sorry for people whose skin this doesn't work on! It's one of the best perfumes ever made, edgy, sexy, cool and modern. This is the only perfume I just have to re-buy every once in a while. I'm so happy it works like a miracle on my skin, truly one of the most memorable scents a woman can have. I feel like I don't even have to explain, people who get this perfume know what I'm talking about.:) (PS; I'm actually a gourmand lover, so to say this about Light Blue really means something.) Amazing masterpiece and I will love it forever. :)

On the test strip it seemed very one dimensional and light with very little sillage. I am so glad I gave this fragrance a chance on my skin. It just works with my chemistry. After about an hour the bamboo and musk really came out with citrus and cedar in the background. Very watery and some how slightly salty. I found it to be an incredibly sexy sent.

This is a nice citrus scent on a test strip or sniffing straight from the bottle but that's where it ends for me. It completely disappears within five minutes of application for me.

Try before you buy! It is evident from the diverging reviews that this either works on your skin or it doesn't work at all. My skin completely rejects this fragrance. It was a gift so it was no big loss for me. I will be sending this along to someone else who can enjoy it more than I can.

Where is it? I just tried this from a sample vial, and it is the faintest little scent, ever. Freshly sprayed, but smells like the remnants of wearing it all day. No way would I be happy to spend full price on what is basically faintly scented water on me. :(

It is a fresh, lemony scent that could be awesome if it had a little more "oomph".

seemed like an androgynous scent to me, feminine with a masculine hint. or vice versa. I initially thought I had a men's cologne, honestly.

more woody than expected (the name implies an aquatic scent..or that's what I thought)

I received it as a sample tube and it was one of my favorites... first spray is like a dark, beach-y scent then it dries to a cedar, woody finish.

i think i'd rather have a boyfriend wear the equivalent though. not too many guys came up to me and said i smelled nice.. if they DID smell it, I'd imagine they thought I was wearing a boyfriend's hoodie or something.
(I've never had a bf though, maybe THAT'S why I liked it so much LOL)

How sadly disappointing ! I had this years ago and found it much too masculine and light for me. Not my style.
My girlfriend tested it at a store and wanted it, since she loves light citrus scents.
So, I saved money for months, and finally got it for her for her birthday. I paid full retail at the same mall store that she used for testing. At first she was thrilled when she opened my gift. Unfortunately, later that week she told me she was disappointed. She likes the scent, but it didn't last, even when she used the matching lotion I gave her. And she doesn't have "perfume eating skin" or anything. We've both decided to stay away from D&G scents from now on. Live and learn.

Light Blue; D & G

Light Blue ... an absolute exquisite fragrance, worthy of my top ten (10) parfum favorites.

The first recognizable note is citrus, notably lime, possibly lemon, but apple is undetectable.

After the fragrance dries down, it than softens to a beautiful cedar woodsy burst of freshness. The uniqueness of some notes may very well be represented by the bamboo and bellflower, as I am unfamiliar with these scents. I can only conclude that their presence must be the beautiful, yet 'new' scents that are very apparent, in Light Blue.

Finally, a light musk with a lovely creaminess evolves into the fragrance.

I have tested some of Dolce & Gabbana's fragrances. I honestly can not say any have had much impact, at all , on me, but Light Blue is pure perfection.

I love love love this. It's my signature scent. It's fresh and clean. I can't tell you how many strangers come up to me telling me how good I smell...it's borderline creepy! I'm not usually a fan of citrus, but I think this is done right. It's not too sweet either. This seems to last on me forever because when people tell me I smell good half the time I can't even remember putting it on because it's 8 hours later. It's definitely not a "look at me!" scent, but it will get you noticed.

I smelled this fragrance on a nurse while I was hospitalised. I kept on sniffing her wrist the poor woman ! It was beautiful !
So at first occasion, I went to try it on me ! Well, what a disappointment, straight at the bottle, it smelled like a cheap & nasty cologne, on me it was worse !
But on that nurse, it was absolutely divine, to show how fragrances are unique on everyone !

Another "best-seller" that doesn't work on me. :-(
I've been trying to use this perfume since it was released, but it only seems to work for me when smelled on others or from the bottle.
My nose likes it, but for some reason my skin hates it. I've tried it too many times to count.

From the bottle it smells fresh and clean. Very simple, comfortable and easy to wear. Maybe even a little refreshing? But once I spray it on my skin it turns too acidic...if that's even the right word. I don't know, it just becomes harsh on my skin and doesn't feel "me".

I'm a little bummed about it because it seems like it would be a very nice, everyday scent.

It's my go-to all time favorite, day/night/winter/summer etc. For me, it is long lasting. I put it on the morning and by my 5pm class, students are telling me they love the Light Blue fragrance.

Add this to the files of perfumes almost everyone loves except me. I wish I loved this more than I did, but I just don't. I love the citrus topnotes that I smell on first sniff, but underneath those there's this weird musky smell that's not light and summery at all- more masculine and after-shavey. When wearing this I ended up smelling like a man, and I'd rather smell this scent on a guy than on me.

I absolutely love this fragrance, though I don't wear it often. It's fresh, clean, citrusy. There is something just so unmistakaby sexy about this scent. I find it breaks me out, so I always spray it on my clothes and into my hair, not onto my skin.

The fact that this perfume is so popular makes me hate it so much. It's like every day I pass by at least 3 women wearing it, which by itself wouldn't be that much of a drama but it's so utterly uninteresting.. it just puzzles me.
This perfume is exactly the same as its name. Light - just a hint of something nice smelling, Blue - boring and absolutely everywhere.

Don't get me wrong, I don't hate the scent. I'm just sick of it. And the only thing that it's good for is a home air freshener.

I bought this back when I was in high school - I was so excited because it was my first "real" perfume (meaning not a body mist from BBW or VS :P). I loved it and practically drowned myself in it. Throughout the years, my taste has completely changed, however, when I saw a 1.7 oz in Marshall's I couldn't resist trying it out again.

It opens with bright, beautiful lemon. On me, it smells great, but that lemon note smells rancid on a friend of mine. The dry down is nice - cedar with a slight hint of apple. Nothing too crazy fruity. Just fresh, clean, yummy. Someone else described it as a glass of ice water with lemon. I completely agree! I can see myself wearing this a lot during the summer.

I fell in love with this when I was trying on new scents while shopping. Its pure heaven. I make soap as a hobby, so always enjoy unique scent combinations, the cedar and lime in this is gorgeous. I also layer it with Escada Born in Paradise, it was an accidental combination, but when I wear these together I can't stop smelling my wrists all day at my desk!

I've always wanted a bottle of Light Blue because it is a modern classic. I believe that it will stand the test of time and be around 20, 30 years from now. However, I was also drawn to Acqua di Gioia due to the serene looking bottle and the name Gioia (which I believe means joy in Italian). So, months ago, I purchased a bottle of Acqua di Gioia first. Don't get me wrong, I really really like Acqua di Gioia.... But now that I have a bottle of Light Blue I'm realizing just HOW sweet Acqua di Gioia smells. I almost think it will end up being a little cloying when the temps here get to 105 degrees with 100% humidity. I'll put it like this- Acqua di Gioia is like a tall, refreshing glass of good ole Southern lemonade (aka sugary lemon juice) while Light Blue is a glass of ice water with slices of lemon. I think Light Blue will do better in sweltering heat than Acqua di Gioia. I guess I will find out in about a month or two.

I first got this as a gift and even though I was sure I would hate it, I was too curious and gave it a try - and what a surprise it was :)
I was afraid I was heading for a heavy, sweet and womanish fragrance, but this perfume deserves its name - Light Blue.

A happy, light and cheerful scent.
On my skin, it smells mostly of the combination of apple and bamboo.

I used it for a while as my signature scent, and got a lot of compliments (even though it was really popular at the time).
I think I grew too mature for this scent, which to me smells a bit too perky and synthetic, but I still like it a lot.

Very good longevity and a moderate sillage.

Light Blue is definitely very likeable but not very long lasting. It's nice but for the price, it stinks that you have to keep spraying it like a body spray.

LB smells very nice when you spray just a little, soft fruity/musky/wooody/clean. But if you only spray "a little", the scent will disappear way to soon, and no one will be able to even notice that you are wearing perfume.

If you spray a lot, LB will only smell like acidic cleaning products, like really sharp citrus and nothing else.

Btw, beware of a strong "melting plastic"-note in this perfume.

Such an expensive perfume SHOULD have better sillage and longevity, shame on you, Dolce Gabbana... :-(

So popular! Everyone and their sisters have it. Both young and less young. I never could understand the hype around this one. It smells very common and it became more of an acquired taste, but it doesn't smell bad or offensive, unless... unless you're surrounded by it anywhere and people bathe in it. But then probably any perfume would become boring and obnoxious if used in that way.
There must be something comforting in this perfume.
Maybe the citrus blast. Lemon is always uplifting. Then you have bellflower. Bellflower??? I remember bellflowers from my childhood. They had such a faint but vaguely intriguing smell. How many bellflowers do you need for a bottle of LB? None. Go with synthetics and you're done.
The rest of the note list is such a common blend that it could be just 70% of feminine fragrances.
Still LB is highly recognisable and it's true that it radiates from the wearer. For good and for bad. Years of overexposure perhaps made me harder towards this one in the past.
An easy crowd-pleaser and crowd-attractive scent, but the reason for me is still a mystery.
Nice but no masterpiece here.
It's very longlasting, too. There is a hint of the usual generic "wood" in the drydown that you can find in so many modern perfumes, but it's kept tamed here.
It's into the floral fruity Group. I would have put this in the citrus chypre or a feminine citrus-aromatic.
To be honest it's nothing so great. The reason I'm feeling more friendly with LB than in the past is that I just hit my nose with a few drops of Coco Mademoiselle (an endless bubonic plague) from one of those silly carded samples with awful spray that always come off and split perfume when I just take it in my hand. I'm feeling offended and my head is spinning.
A bottle of LB now would come as a relief to spray into my nostrils.

This scent is one I am fond of. It's fresh, clean and non offensive. It does have a very soft womanly feel to it. I would say it's much more casual than sexy. It's not an impact perfume. It's an attractive casual scent that can handle being in an office. It smells like lime and lemon to me and a soft flower. Definately gets the beach into my head. I can almost feel the sand on some exotic location ..
Yes, it does kinda smell like lemonheads candy a slight bit. Men seem to be good with this scent in fact when discussing scents with male friends they often times site this as a good one. I guess everyone wears this but for work wear that might be a good thing. I wouldn't wear this at night. It's too casual and weak for me . I never have smelled anyone I know with this on. However, when I do spot it it's always on someone beautiful. Either naturally and sporty or someone who tans and places a lot into their appearance. Never smelled it on anyone that was not sorta attractive.

Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue is a very light, refreshing fragrance which won't shock or surprise, but it will definitely make a fresh, under-the-fence; pretty statement.
The fragrance resembles the rejuvenating and jovially beautiful Ligurian Coast near Italy, where the amalfi lemon of the fragrance is the light, soothing breeze and the cedar is reminiscent of the bright azure of the sea. This fragrance is one of the purest I've ever sniffed, bearing in mind that it has a lot of calone in it as well.

This swirl of fresh, mingling meloniness along with the calm and cooling cedar renders this to be a pretty unusual and intriguing perfume. This IS NOT one of the generic, all-over-the-place aquatics such as its rather forlorn male counterpart.

I really liked Light Blue. Although I wouldn't say it's totalitarian in its 'blue' approach, it does the job without being too much. It has a very good longevity, which surprised me as generally, aquatics are pretty flyaway on the skin. It is a pure fragrance, has zero toxins and is one which everyone will love, just like the joy of sipping piña colada with lots of lemon on the Ligurian Coast.

All of the notes are in sync with one another and that is very important.It just blends well. This in my opinion is an everyday scent but it can easily be worn in the summer. Very Popular in department stores right now. I won't be surprise if this becomes a classic.

One of the best-formulated, most popular fragrances of the last fifty years.

A few days ago I was pleasantly caught off-guard as LB radiated from a plain but cute girl who also awaited the subway train. On a mucky April workday morning, it warmed my heart with sunniness, wonder, originality, elegance and beauty. Everything we want to perfume to be--a mood-uplifter, a transporter to other places.

The only sin is that everyone owns it.

Light Blue was my first perfume, though I had a sentimental feeling for that. It´s nice, gentle, feminine. Ideal for those who like fruity scents and
can´t decide. I got a little bit tired of it because it became very popular and many people wore it. And after several months it changed into very bad citrusy-like something, even though I didn´t keep it on the light. But I would buy it again!

This perfume is soft, clean, and powdery. I think it is a lovely scent for the woman who doesnt want to ruffle any feathers, and likes to dress similarly to all of her friends. Perfect for office wear, I think I have smelled it so often on others that I unconsciously think it is a fabric softener. It is a very safe scent, and way too boring for me. I like attention grabbing, head turning perfumes, and this doesn't come close. It strikes me as vapid and mainstream. If you are looking for a scent that wont offend your office mates or garner any attention, this may be the one for you.

I like pronounced lemon note in perfume and that's probably why I like this one. I always liked Light Blue on others but never cared to test it myself, until one day I did and was suddenly drawn to this fragrance. It is fresh scent but not like toilet cleaner fresh, definitely it's not boring. For a fresh fragrance it is quite long lasting and projection is also good.
Naturelle is very similar to Light Blue, but it is more about apple-cedar, while in Light Blue lemon is the most prominent note. Of the two I prefer Light Blue but Naturelle is better for very hot summer days as it is much lighter.

Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue is one of the most popular fragrances on the market. It is light, likable, yet unique - clean enough for day wear, yet too nuanced to be too plain. The distinct lemon smell is familiar without being boring. An instantly recognizable perfume.

Light Blue is a citrus composition dominated by sparkling Sicilian lemon with an undercurrent of woody elements. Lemon opens this perfume and lasts for the majority of its duration. The second prominent note is cedar, also present throughout the life of Light Blue, adding a slightly masculine tone. Apple blends very well with lemon in the top notes for the freshest burst of fragrance I had ever smelled. Bamboo ties all of these parts together with an ozonic and green scent. Everything is blended such that it is a whole, not disparate notes poured together into a flacon. Light Blue is best suited for daytime. It is a refreshing choice for summer, or for a lucky hot day in the spring. It lasts approximately 5 hours, although depending on the soap and lotion underneath, it can extend to over 12 hours. In either case it radiates within arms' length of the wearer with a long, lemony trail.

Any fragrance will become boring after a while and Light Blue is not an exception. While rotating scents, however, it can become a jewel in a collection. For those that are loyal to only one scent this is often the one.

I have smelled this about a thousand times and am still on the fence. On one hand, Light Blue succeeds in delivering a "fresh" (hate that word, too subjective), airy fragrance. Light Blue is soft powdery citrus and it definitely has good sillage and longevity. That said, I find the scent incredibly abrasive. I just want it to lean more in one direction- be it more fruity or more woody/powdery. I feel like a blood orange note would make this more like its pleasant cousin, Moschino I Love Love. As is, Light Blue is like Orangina talcum powder and kind of underwhelming.

I've had a bottle of this for about four years, and the remaining juice is starting to turn. :( I can tell, because I can smell more and more alcohol in the opening, and something about the top notes is off. I'm a bit bummed, because I've always stored it in its box, and in a drawer away from light and heat. I can still wear it, but I'll get another bottle soon. This is a must have for spring and summer. It makes me happy. :)

Ha! I knew it was for women!!

I sprayed it on myself today thinking it was for men and although I loved it, It felt a bit too feminine lol

So, if any girls here want my opinion,
Just buy it already!

For casual/day wear I think it would make you feel fresh, clean, happy and deffo sexy.

Longevity/projection=subjective, depends on your skin type.

Been there done that. Nice safe scent, but to me passé at this point, not because it is not 'new' but because it was just grossly overexposed. The scent itself is not bad, a little masculine but gets away with it in a quirky cool girl way. It is clean, fresh and the cedar crafted with the citrus is pleasing and refreshing. I'm glad I did wear it and enjoy it, but now to me, it is just OVER.

I like this a lot and I don't know why. I just feel good wearing it and I really can't even smell it on me after a while. I find this fragrance quite addicting . It's fresh but woody . I honestly wear it for myself . I am not sure if other people even smell it on me because it's so light . I get a good 4 hours and then it's time for a refresh. This is a great fragrance for cool casual moments . I have been grabbing for it everyday and it's really not my style of fragrance I usual go for. I like heavier scents . Somehow this has grabbed me in.

I don't understand how this perfume is so popular. I feel like I just wasted $100.00 dollars on this junk. Its sillage & longevity is poor and weak, and the smell is not great at all. Way too much lemon in this one. As a matter of fact ,this is the only note I pick up when wearing this on my skin. It reminds me of lemon scented pledge. Not good at all!! I don't plan on re-purchasing this.

I have to say, I would never buy this because everybody wears it, or knows somebody who wears it. But I can see why it's so immensely popular. It's citrusy, clean, and fresh - it smells like the popular girl you always wanted to date, who managed to pull off the myth of "effortlessly beautiful." I sneak sniffs at the store, and from my little mini sample bottle. (My ex's ex wore this one. Sometimes I thought about wearing it just to mess with him - but let's be real, also because I wanted to smell like a delicious citrus cocktail too.) It's gentle and pretty, and completely not me.

But I still like to pretend every now and then.

I'm not a huge fan of Light Blue. Unfortunately, this smells just like lemons and reminds me too much of some kind of cleaner product. If the lemon note wasn't so pronounced, it wouldn't bother me so much. Unfortunately, this is not a fragrance for me despite the popularity of this fragrance.

This is just like Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche. Clean, citrus, floral, fresh, powdery and creamy. Its one of my signature perfumes for cooler climates. Hot and humid climates tend to ruin this perfume. Love it. Chanel Chance eau fraiche is fresher without the powdery creamy drydown, everything else is similar. I love the Chanel one too, it can withstand summers well and does not get ruined by heat and humidity!

Well, its amusing how most people here find it closest with notes in I Love Love Cheap and Chic from Moschino. I Love Love by Moschino is no doubt Citrus but its more like a bitter, synthetic lemony fragrance. It has a floral, citrus and powdery dry down, that smells like Light Blue much later, but still bitter and synthetic! The opening is just awful and puts me off which is why I hate this perfume from Moschino. I can't believe that a house such as Moschino would rather consider discontinuing their gem 'Couture!' than 'I Love Love' in their collection of fragrances.

It's a lovely scent, mostly lemon. Marketing image is perfect, it does conjure up a fun fresh day near the water. But no staying power at all. I barely smell it by the time I get my car in the morning after dressing. If it lasts on your skin, then it's a winner.

Light Blue is floral and fruity without being simple and childish. I went to Sephora looking for an apple-y fragrance and came home with this. Its greatness lies in its versatility. It's appropriate for pretty much any occasion I can imagine. My only complaint is that it fades after a couple of hours. It's still there when I leave work, but it's a skin scent. Light Blue has a permanent position in my perfume wardrobe as my go-to.

I love this scent! Just received it in my mailbox and tried it straight away. It was a blind buy and I was a bit worried that I would not like it, but it's so worth it. A scent that you won't go wrong with. The holding power is pretty average around 5 hours on my skin, although people say that it lasts way longer? It's not a big deal though, I just reapply it every 5 hours :)

Light blue is not your vanilla/popcorn-type of sweet scent. But it is a soft, pretty sweet-smelling fruit. It is actually quite sophisticated, clean and very easy to wear. It's definitely a summer scent, and I live in Singapore where it's summer all year round! LOVE!

After buying the product online, I actually went down to the stores to get a sample of light blue on paper. It just smelled so different on paper! You need to get a spritz of it on you, instead of paper!

I'm in the minority here. I don't think it's generic or boring. It is popular, so you do smell it a lot, but its popularity is waning as more are wearing berry~patch scents, so... maybe some who have scoffed at it will give it a shot, on their skin.

I love it. It's super clean, but has a hint of sweetness.

Initial blast (and it is a blast): Lemon and Apple

Middle 1: Then you get Cedar, and lots of it, but it's a beautiful combo (with lemon and apple).

Middle 2: There is rose in this, but it doesn't smell like rose (perfume) as much as rosewater. Some people have to try harder than others to smell this. It comes out on me, and is likely what adds that sweetness.

Final: It does have a musky drydown on many, but actually not on me, and my skin amps musk. I love it either way ~ the musky drydown (this way on many) or the softer, lemon~cedar~apple~roswater drydown.

Verdict: On many, this is a super strong lemon detergent with cedar overload and possibly a super musky finish. On others, this is a strong lemon apple with cedar and rosewater. LOVE BOTH.

I'm not sure what to say about this exactly. First spray it reminded me faintly of lemon dishwasher liquid, after a while I thought it gave off this headache-inducing 'plasticky' smell, but then... It grew on me! I sniffed the perfume straight from the bottle and I thought I smelled the best 'fresh' perfume ever, little bit of Granny Smith and citrus, tiniest hint of sweetness but still very clean, and then when sprayed on the dry down has the slightest masculinity in the background to give it personality. I don't love it, in fact I totally understand and even partially agree on some of the negative reviews but... But I keep reaching for it and enjoyed smelling it on me. So in the end I just went ahead and voted like.

A mans view:
I got a sample of this in a ulta magazine in the mail. When I first opened it, it immediately drew me in to the vibrant crispness of the perfume. Like the same says, light. It is one of lightest perfumes I have smelt, but that's what makes it very good. Stays close to the skin. The commercial they launched with a man and a woman jumping in to the ocean of of a boat right off the beach fits this fragrance perfectly. It is one of my all time favorite women's fragrance. Going in for a hug, getting a little whiff of light blue makes me go numb. The best fragrance a woman can wear.

I had a complete turnaround with Light Blue recently. When I first tried it last year, I found it too zesty for my tastes and slightly masculine, like a sporty scent. But now, I really like it and find it energising and fresh. Far from being masculine, I now find it feminine and super clean-smelling. Now wearing this daily!

I agree with a lot of reviewers here who say they can't smell much after an hour or 2. Unfortunately I agree. However, that first hour is pure aromatherapy with the sweet citrus / lemony jasmine musk and I can't get enough. It's a cold long winter here and I need an escape to the Mediterranean. Well, this is as close as I am going to get. My husband absolutely loves this scent. I've had coworkers compliment me a few hours after application, as they walked into a room I was in, saying "it smells like a beautiful spring day in here"..so this stuff definitely stays with you, but I guess some become anosmic to the musk element. I find with this scent, liberally spraying gives me the best wear. And by liberal I mean 6 sprays tops. It's worth it to get a mini travel spray to touch up, or bring something else and change your scent mid-day.

The reason of the success and popularity of this perfume is very symple. It's a really good smell, people like it and people buy it.

Although I used to love this fragrance now I don't anymore. Too many bad memories linked to this one. I also do think that the bottle is really ugly, so mass market oriented. Those two designers or whoever made it could put a little more effort into creating it.

To me, this is the more popular yet less interesting sister of Acqua di Gio. This perfume's light and sweet fragrance can be quite the people pleaser, it won't distract too much from day to day activities if you are in an office or casual meeting. If you like that fresh out the shower scent that isn't overly flowery nor too fruity and has good longevity, this may be worth a try.

It truly lives up to its name given it reminds one of the delicate scent of a misty waterfall. It doesn't exude "sexy", its very delicate...light but lacking confidence...it reminds me of something a person who is rather shy, friendly, polite, trendy, prefers to fit in with a crowd by taking a lot of precaution about their actions and words and doesn't like standing out would wear.

You can't be really turned off by it, but in the same vein...you aren't exactly turned ON or delighted by it, either. Its lovely but, personally, its another face in the crowd of fragrances to me.

This used to be my signature for about two years. I've had two more signatures after this, and it seems like I'm still in search of "the one". Well, after many months, I've worn Light Blue tonight. I wonder why I let go of it in the first place. Perhaps I got bored with it? Oh, no, wait. I know why... Everyone and their mother was wearing it. Now it's still popular, but not as popular as it used to be. Then again, who cares if everybody else is wearing it? All I know is that it's a runner up for my next signature, that's for sure!

Wow this thing has no sillage at all. I don't smell it throughout the day if I don't make it a point to sniff my wrist.

I fell in love this scent the first time I smelled it in Sephora and I couldn't get it out of my mind. Well, the saleslady did contrast this with Burberry Brit, which is not my type of scent at all.

I can only distinguish the citrus in this since I'm still new at this. But I think it's just perfect for spring, fresh and soft. It's not one of those crisp sparkly citrus scents, but very calming. When I first smelled it, it reminded me of walking through a huge grassy field with trees (some orange trees maybe? lol) on the side on a warm and sunny day. I just wanna lounge around under the sun (or at home) with this on.

It's softer and lasts a little shorter than cafe cafe puro iced, which is cooler and crispier. Anna Sui Secret Wish is a similar scent family, though it is way more linear and smells down right boring on me and I don't like it at all. Light Blue on the other hand, I do enjoy quite a bit.

Clean and pretty with a touch of sophistication. I'd say it's less sporty than the male equivalent but with more flexible wear overall.

I really thought I would like this based on the notes and descriptions. However, on me within the first hour the light smell turned a bit like something in my kitchen, some sort of mild curry and tiny amount of lemon. After a few hours it is a very mild citrus, but almost gone. There are many other citrus/ fresh (I didn't really think this one was fresh) fragrances I prefer, though this is inoffensive.

The opening is divine. Bright, green, fresh. It's a very pleasant scent, completely different from others I have sampled. The drawback... it's pretty linear. After a few hours I got bored with it. I prefer the scents that change over time on my skin or ones that give me different hints of the notes during the different times I sniff it. This one doesn't do that. It smells exactly the same from beginning to end, which took about six hours for me. It's a well balanced scent and I can understand why it is so popular. It's not one I would buy myself. For the price I expect the scent to evolve more on my skin. If your a shirt sprayer then this one is perfect for you since most scents are linear on fabric anyways(from my experience).

The main notes I got out of it was the citrus, bamboo, cedar and a hint of the bellflower.

This fragrance is suitable for summer. It's light and full of citrus. The floral scent of Jasmine is also sensible in it.
Really nice one but copied a lot and seems not so special because of other so similar perfumes.
Very similar to Moschino light clouds and I love love.
I would totally wear it on a sunny summer day.

My husband recetly bought a BOD Man body spray, called "Freshest Cleanest". I smelled it and it reminded me of another fragrance. I couldn't put my finger on it at first, so I kept thinking... Then it hit me, it smells just like D&G's light blue, I couldn't believe it! Now I shall excuse myself to go steal my husband's bottle :)

I recently purchased this due to its overwhelming praise from the men on this site. I can see why they all love it!!!!! It is so fresh and feminine. I is so fresh, light, and womanly. My husband loves it. It has a slight sweet smell, but not a strong one, more like a sweet clean citrus. It is more fruity with a splash of florals and an underlying woodsy smell. Very nice blend!

I am SO IN LOVE with this perfume! I had my Viva La Juicy on my wrists and sprayed this up closer to my elbow on the back of my arm... I JUST KEEP SMELLING IT above the Juicy. I SOOOOOO cannot wait until spring and summer to wear this newly discovered beauty!!!!! I is so clean and crisp! JUST LOVE IT!

This was a beautiful perfume for me when I had it, as it as given to me by my now in-laws while my husband and I were dating, and we were but young, naive teenagers with hearts full of love and no grasp of how hard living in the real world would be. The perfume seemed to have turned not very long after receiving it, although I couldn't bear to throw it away til just recently. Now, I'm ready to move on to something more grown-up and complex.

My first impressions of this perfume were of surprise, that it did not smell like floor cleaner, but that it was the perfect summer citrus, bright yet soft and reminiscent of clear blue water rippling in the sunshine with citrus trees nearby. When I first smelled it I wanted to be in the water, and feel the sunshine on my face, and smell the fragrance of bright, green citrus wafting towards me. Just lovely!

I do like the scent itself, but for a high end brand, I'm underwhelmed. I also agree that Moschino's I love love is a good alternative. None of them lasted long on my skin, though, which is probably to be expected of citric notes. And once those notes are gone, you're not left with much.

I'm a guy and I literally went on a hunt to find this, just to find out what smelled so good on girls who wear it. Maybe it's just my DNA, but this is definitely the pinnacle of seductive fragrance for women. Any girl who wears this will be highly favored. I'm not saying fragrance will cover up bad looks and bad attitude but if you keep yourself together and top your look off with this, you might get a guy to marry you. It's that serious lol. Seriously, the sexiest thing I've ever smelled on a female. Just so you know how I judge women's fragrance, the fragrance Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy was second in my preference on a female. It was second, but the gap between second and first was huge. D&G light blue had a huge lead. Any other fragrance is just for your own enjoyment, the other fragrances like Chanel, Versace, Gucci etc weren't that attractive except one Versace I smelled which would have made third.

Anyway, this is the winner and top dog of female fragrance. Sillage is good because I smelled the scent trail when around tons of people. Not sure of longevity because I don't wear perfume.

Take it from a man.

10/10 * Scent
?/10 Longevity
10/10 Sillage (Radiates within 6 feet) But scent trail and quality is 10

P.S. Seriously, if you are looking for a fragrance others can enjoy and one you might enjoy or tolerate get this. Men will definitely notice you no doubt. The only risk is that people might not know who is wearing this. If we find out it is you, you are gold. Make it clear you are wearing this because when guys smell this, it is our goal to figure out who smells so good because the fragrance is superb. I wish I could write more but those are my words of the day. PEACE

This is a fresh and clean fragrance. I used to like it in the past (when I was 10 years younger:), but as my nose matured, I realised it was not special in any way... Most people like it and would probably be OK with wearing it, because it's quite neutral and relaxing.

D&G Light Blue is my Summer scent. It's light, clean and fresh. A nice combination of fruit (lemon) and spice that lasts a long time without overwhelming.

I have a really hard time finding fragrance because most of them smell too sweet or too heavy for me. D&G Light Blue is just right for summer - day or night.

This is my mom's signature perfume and I try to use it as much as I can whenever she has it. It complements our hot and humid climate, no wonder why it's one of the best-selling and most popular perfumes in our country. It's fresh, citrusy and light, okay for work, date night, going out, partying, and hot summer nights. Sometimes though I tend to sneeze when I overspray or when I spray it too close on me but it settles down to a fine scent after a while. I like this one but I wouldn't consider it my signature scent because I believe there are a lot more better options around. Besides, it's sort of a generic female scent in our country and I would want something more unique. But I wouldn't hesitate to use it if someone lends me theirs. It lasts for a good two to three hours. I reapply two to three times at most throughout the day. BTW I think this would be a safe choice as a gift and it would also be a good part of a perfume collection. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Hands down my favorite scent ever. It doesn't have bergamont listed above but whenever I wear it I swear I smell it in there every time. This is such a unique scent and no scent in over 10 years has captured my love like this. I discovered it about 2 years ago and love it more than I did then.
Other reviews on here are right, there is a LOT of fakes on this scent. BEWARE who you buy ti from. the fakes DO NOT smell like the original. Believe me, I have two versions of this and they don't smell exactly like it at all. I am not crazy about the two "cheap dupes" of this but the actual Light Blue I am madly in love with.
On me it comes off at the start with sharp citrus notes and dries down to musky, cedar wood, with what I want to say smells like bergamont and rose. There is a slight bamboo scent that lingers and jasmine.
Some reviewers claim there is nothing special about this scent but I disagree, I have been a huge perfume buyer for over 25 years and I have not smelled anything like this. Not in this complex way.
It is a very clean smell that can be pulled off by anyone in any age range which I LOVE about it. It's mostly a day scent but I wear it all day and night. A little goes a long way with this and the silage is great. I have had more compliments with this than anything I can think of besides my Fredrick's of Hollywood F scent.

Smells like lemon mixed with beer when you first spray this scent. Once it settles into your skin, you get a soft fresh citrus scent. I see this fragrance priced anywhere from $80-$100 bucks. What a ripoff!!! Your only paying for the designer name. I have never owned this perfume, only tried it through sample vials. The dry down is not terrible, but it doesn't seem to last long on my skin. For that reason, I don't think I'd buy this fragrance. $90 bucks is way too much money for me to spend on a designer fragrance, only to have it last 2 hours on my skin.

This is a very weird scent, let me compare it to a wine - it smells "dry" to me, the way a dry wine tastes; tolerable yet not all that good. Unless you're a true connoisseur, and can find the goodness in it, to most people it will, more or less, leave a bitter aftertaste.

This is my husband's absolute favorite scent to smell on me. He describes it as "intoxicating." LOL....It smells good. Very citrusy to me, but he can't get enough. Not my favorite, but definitely not a loser either. It has its place in my collection when I just want a quick spritz of something versatile.

been reaching for this much more than usual lately.. ironic, since the weather is no longer warm.

the fresh, cozy, familiar smell makes me feel more grounded and like myself. This is one of those smells. I find no citrus cleaner in here, no air freshener. On me, this has a hint of sweetness almost akin to that classic bubblegum we used to chew waaaay back in the day... u know, that 'bazooka' one? strange, i know, but oh sooo familiar.

it gives me that feeling of peace - like when its raining outside and the heaters on, and you're huddled under your favorite quilt with your favorite book you've read 3 times.

its floral without being too floral (hate florals, actually), and citrusy without the annoying sharpness. it has some woods in it, but nothing too 'grown up', nor is it childlike. Anyone, from teenagers to older women can wear this, and smell classic. Wonderful perfume as a starter into the 'designer' realm, and as a signature for those of us who've been around the 'designer' realm for sometime.

I finally smelled Light Blue by Dolce and Gabanna on my wrist and I must say that it wasn't what I expected.

With "what I expected" I mean some citric eau de colognesque perfume; and what I found was a similar fragrance to my beloved I love love by Moschino, but with a stronger musk note at the beginning; eventually to a discrete "my skin but better aroma" unlike the everlasting herbal/fruit trace of I love love.

Light Blue ecent aroma, good for those who like inoffensive perfumes with an interesting citric twist; however those who dislike musk like the plague should avoid it or at least be brave enough and endure it while you wait for the "summery fruits" to arrive at the land of your skin :P

Not sure this EDT suits my skin chemistry which is a shame because so many people love it and I was hoping to love it too when tryng to find a new everyday fragrance!! Much like CKIN2U on my skin, the EDT is very zesty but also a bit masculine - like someone dabbed me with an alcohol swab. Sadly not for me.

Is it possible to bottle a warm summer day?
This perfume is total proof of that. The citrusy notes smell so clean, the little hints of floral give off the right amount of femininity, and the woodsy cedar keeps it from being too much of a young girl's scent. Whenever I smell this, I think of exotic beaches and summer flings. It's a nice everyday scent that isn't too heavy, but you might need a couple of extra sprays for better sillage

The kind of fragrance you never get tired of. The moment I smelled this one on someone else, I KNEW i had to have it. With that slight lime note, and the woody drydown reminding me exactly like the velvety box it comes in, Its definately worth every penny.

Its a fresh fragrance suitable for the hottest days of summer, but the drydown gives it a cozy vibe in the winter. When I wear this I feel like a rich woman. As far as its cheaper counterpart (cheap and chic) They are almost exactly alike, however the citrus in Cheap and Chic is a sweeter, more in your face orange, and light blue is a little more refined and blends beautifully.

Not to mention that the lasting power is amazing and lasts all day long on me. I even brought out a tshirt that I wore for a few minutes and decided to change after i sprayed on some light blue. it smelled of LB and it was worn last in JULY!

I love Light Blue. It is a perfect summer..or anytime..fragrance. If you like sparkly, citrus scents...this one is for you. However, if you find the price tag a bit daunting, I Love Love by Moschino is really close to being a duplicate scent and it affordable. Light Blue is a bit more dry, which definitely has and appeal. I Love Love is a bit more sweet, which is also appealing. The difference is barely distinguishable.

The first time I tried Light Blue on my skin I was the victim of a tester bottle gone bad, which was a highly unpleasant olfactory experience and made me stay away from it for quite a while. Since then I have sampled it now and then, really trying to understand and appreciate it as it's adored by so many women all around the world. But no, my skin just doesn't get along with this scent. It's Light Blue that's made me realize that I have a problem with cedar. This may sound strange but it somehow turns buttery on my skin, which spoils the whole freshness of a scent like this, which is meant to be crisp and clean. Light Blue is just not for me.

This was one of my ex-girlfriend's favourites. I loved it on her. It's much better than the male Light Blue. Although neither has exceptional longevity, this perfume lasts longer than the cologne. It's such a pleasant citrusy, fresh scent. It worked wonderfully with her chemistry, and I could smell it on her all day. Many women find this fragrance boring, but I've always felt that it's quite an enchanting scent.

The notes in this are pleasant inocuous enough, but there is a thin veil of something that hangs in it, and it smothers me. I didn't think it was possible to suffocate in tulle, but suffocate in an unbearable veil of lightness is what I do. It might as well be plastic and not tulle. I find it to be revealing that it's marketed with a heavily suede-textured box. Smothering, indeed.
I get no citrus. Just powder and a thin veil of sticky icky that makes me want to wash it out of my nose. I find all the D&G line have this same veil, in a similar way that the BVLGARI line has a thin veil of signature ick. Does not work with my chemistry.
There is a similar veil in Insolence and other Guerlain and D&G fragrances. I find Insolence to be similarly suffocating. When I put on Light Blue, I just want to scream, "Do something!!" It just hangs there. I don't want to put my mind into it. It's begging to be washed off since it's apparently never developing into anything. On my clothes, it just leaves some generic sweetness.
Edit: This is being marketed so much! It's in every magazine, department store mailer, sample pack... I recently re-sniffed a paper strip in a mailer and it was actually nice. I think the difference is that I need to smell this in cool weather. The tart "grapefruit" smells sweet and the veil is tamed down enough to be able to smell the core. Will be trying to test and layer this with Rive Gauche at the recommendation of a Fragrantican. Report back later!

i love this. the light citrus paired with the cedar is amazing. the floral notes are light. it ends up smelling really clean without that soap smell. definately an everyday fragrance. suitable for work too. not a date night fragrance. i was losing hope in finding a fragrance for myself, but i really love this one. not overly girly, not powdery, just bright without being fruity sweet.

i really wish this was a perfume and not an edt, but i guess you cant have everything. my husband really likes it too, but said it is not a sexy fragrance and more of an everyday daytime fragrance.

Light Blue reminds me of the scent equivalent of that guy you dated a few times that was nice, safe and reliable. He would treat you like a princess but you'd rather have the bad boy next door.

I don't hate it. It has a light lemony fragrance that reminded me of how my house smells after a good cleaning. It's a good scent to wear for work.

And therein lies the problem for me. I work in a hospital and every day I can smell this on easily half the employees there. So now every time I smell Light Blue, I think of hospitals.

Edited to add: This is really everywhere here. I'm at the point where the smell is giving me headaches & now I really dislike it.

When I first smelled this on a sample I really liked it and put it on my wishlist. Well, I received it as gift this past Christmas and wore it a couple of times, but as I got farther into my pregnancy the scent (or top notes) became overpowering to the point where they gave me a headache and it smelled like underarm BO musked with perfume. I had my baby 2 months ago and the effect on me is still the same! I am sad to say that right now I don't like this fragrance.

I tried a sample and loved the scent so much I bought a large bottle the same day. What a waste of money. Longevity is zero ! I tried it on my neck, wrists, sprayed it on my hair, clothes but nothing works. The first hour it has a sharp citric smell on me, which I like although it does have a ring of citric cleaning products to it. After that, the perfume evaporates completely on me. I have never experienced this with other perfumes before. Fresh and light scents are my favourites and I know these tend not to last too long but this one is totally not worth the money! Such a disappointment.

The olfactory equivalent of a designer white t shirt--androgynous, clean, casual, nice to wear in hot weather. Does anyone need to pay designer prices for a t shirt? Not really, but some people appreciate the subtle details in the stitching.

The composition is sheer and transparent. The citrus teeters on the brink of shrillness, but is saved and grounded by the cedar and musk. Light Blue is a well done, suburban preppy scent, with zero sweetness. It has polite hand shake sillage and longevity.

My husband bought me this, but has never commented on it. Like a pair of light blue jeans, Light Blue is likeable and approachable, but makes no demands for attention. So inoffensive it’s almost mute, Light Blue has an undeniable catalog model romping blondly with a golden retriever kind of prettiness. I used up most of a bottle effortlessly.

I had a boyfriend from Russia who adored this scent and bought me a bottle before I had ever tried it on. I wore it around him to be polite. Its nice but not right for me. I smell fresh cut flower stems, citrus, 7-up, a hint of bathroom cleanser, and a sour note. Its refreshing. fresh. clean and very crisp. Great for summer! It's not warm or sweet at all.

I consider this as an "only to the beach scent" ( I live in a city with a beach) but someday I wore this at work and even a guy followed me to ask myself what I was wearing!! People really likes it... but Im more into "sexy spicy glamorous scents". However, this is beautiful, its very very enjoyable.

I love the smell of it on people. Light Blue is very refreshing in any place. But i never was able to wear it proudly. Usually it turns into sour/dirty/metal or some other kind unpleasant thing. In the best case smells just fresh as body spray for few hours. Already tried German/Italian brands and same result. I asked opinion of my friends and they confirmed it doesn't smell good. Such a pity. On paper it is so beautiful, citrus with hint of baby powder and classic flowers.
What's the most annoying that no one of it's imitations smell good on me too. I bet cedar isn't suitable for my skin. Lucky you, who can be Light Blue's friend! :)

This one took me a while to appreciate. One of my best friends loves this frag, so I became interested in trying it. The first time I wore it, for whatever reason, it reeked of cedar. Cedar chips, to be precise. I thought I smelled like a hamster cage and thought, "ew, no thank you". However, months later, I accidentally got my sample vial of this on my hands, and was surprised by how refreshing I now found this scent. I don't know what changed (I did change birth control pills, maybe that changed my chemistry??), but suddenly all I smelled was lemons, musk, and a tiny bit of cedar in the background to deepen the delicious lemons. It is fresh and summery, yet sort of edgy-smelling in a way. I feel like this scent works as well on a hot summer night with red lipstick and heels as it does at a daytime pool party. Perfect for a hot Florida summer!

On me the fragrance stays somewhat the same all day, and it lasts alllll day. So glad I was able to discover why everyone loves this!

*Also, unrelated to the overall review of this frag, I purchased a tester bottle of Light Blue on ebay and it smelled like burning rubber. I think the bottle was legit but it spoiled. Seller sent me another bottle and it, too, smelled like burning rubber. My first bad experience with ebay perfume! :( Fortunately, Sephora sells a handy and affordable roller-ball size for $25, which I scooped up.

I love this perfume so much! Yet, I haven't been wearing it lately, because where I live one can smell it in every corner of the street. I resolved I'd use it as a bathroom spray, and then each time I walked into my bathroom, I was seduced by this scent, and felt uspset, because I was holding myself back from wearing it. Which is still the case, but I'm seriously considering making this my signature again. I've tried so many perfumes, and I've found a few that I absolutely love, yet something keeps telling me that Light Blue is the one that suits me best. Why does it have to be so overused? I can definitely see (or should I say, smell) why...

I've worn so many fragrances lately, yet I haven't received one single compliment until today. What was I wearing? Light Blue! LOL isn't it ironic? :)

This perfume was worn by someone I didn't know. I found it so attractive that I asked a complete stranger what she was wearing. What I like about this perfume is that it's fresh, but strong in the meanwhile. Instead of a watery ' blond hair, blue eyes perfume' this one can be worn by brunettes as well. On me it doesn't smell sweet at al; on me it's like a lemon, peper, spice and musk-mix. I love it, in summer and winter.

Light, fresh, but incredibly safe. Good perfume for office or if you just want to extend that fresh from the shower feeling. Good for if you want a sense of freshness, rather than making a strong statement with your fragrance. Rather unisex scent. Light Blue is a very fitting name, because it did remind me of being under light blue skies with gentle breezes, wearing a white t-shirt with blue jeans crossing the sun warmed sand on the way to meet friends on a sailboat or yacht.

This is one of those fragrances on my dresser that I call a safe bet. When I am going somewhere and unsure of what to spritz on me, I grab this. It's safe, soft and simple. It has medium lasting power but then again all of my new fragrances seem to just have medium power at best. It's clean, fresh and a great lite summer scent.

LIGHT BLUE starts with a burst of citrus underlaid with musk and cedar. It stays very linear with the citrus getting a bit weaker and lasts for about five hours, which is no bad for a humid rainy summer day. But if one owns ECLAT D'ARPEGE by LANVIN, it is not really necessary to own this one as well.
(This is for a sample I received for free.)

I have to be one of the last people to own this scent because I hate buying perfumes during the time they are "new" or being really pushed because I feel too many people wear it at that time so it does not feel special. I want my scents to feel special to me.

I, just this summer, started wearing this perfume and I can totally see why it is so popular. This is my go to fragrance when the weather is hot. This is one of those fragrances I don't have to think about. I just grab it and spray!

As far as notes, I for sure pick up on the lemon. To me, it is like a sugary lemon and as someone mentioned before it has a Lemonhead candy vibe to it. On me, I too find that the scent does not stay linear but it actually develops. I can pick up on musky floral scents and not just the citrus. I too love the warm dry down when the sexy amber reveals itself. I feel Light Blue starts out very fresh, clean, and light but it develops into a sugary, musky, woody scent.

I just wore this on the 4th and through the hot weather, grilling, and swimming I could still detect in on my skin after 8 hours. I do feel this one wears very close to the skin so I do like to layer this with the body lotion and find that I can get away with 3-4 sprays (chest...stomach...back of my neck). I find guys tend to LOVE this perfume. I don't know what it is really but it seems like it turns them on.

Have you ever been in a relationship with a guy with whom you had sparks flying all over at first and then too soon he pulls the plug off. Then one day, you accidental bump into him at a theatre; again the sparks fly, you start thinking of taking the relationship seriously and next thing you know he disappears big time.

That's the exact relationship I am currently having with the light blue- intrigues, withdraws and breaks heart to pieces.

When I first bumped into this perfume many years back, It gave me a headache. But I saw myself being seduced slowly with every visit to the perfume counters. Then finally I gave in and purchased a full size bottle and started to wear this every morning in the summer.

Even now, the first spritz!!! ahhh... the smell entices me to spritz some more on my wrist. After an hour it dissipates leaving me feeling angry and confused at my purchase.

Next day I look at the frosty white bottle and I am again drawn to it hoping this time it will work. Alas! But nothing ever changes! Unable to escape I lie on the viscous cycle to be churned.

My final verdict on this perfume:

Notes I detect: like lemonade that has turned warm in the summer. I even detect some creaminess to it, which I detest. In humid summer when mixed with sweat the perfume smells like men's cologne - in other words very unlady like.

Sillage: Moderate

Longevity: Weak.

Headache factor: More than two spritz and be prepared for the headache. The perfume will disappear but the headache will not sadly.

overall reaction: Can't be taken seriously. Therefore keep it for a casual affair!

I received this, and the men's version as a gift. I was initially REALLY excited to have two fresh, lush summer fragrances to spritz away, since I know they have the reputation of being a nice cool drink of water on a hot day.

I absolutely LOVE this (and loathe the men's edition, see my review there for more details). It's fresh, lush, sparkling, and delicious. It's perfect for summer, completely inoffensive, and a lot deeper and more complex than most of your fairweather summer citrus fragrances.

The floral notes and the cedar really emerge as a beautiful undertone to the dominant citruses, which makes it a lot more pleasing and delicate.

Sometimes, citruses are too weak or overpoweringly astringent-esque...but this fragrance is completely beautiful, versatile, and suitable for anyone of any age.

It lasts more than six hours on me, which is AMAZING for a citrusy summer fragrance!

This is so moodlifting, so light and fresh and just enough sweet, but not only that; it lasts 8-9 hours on the skin. It is as close to perfection as you can get when it comes to Summer scent . Although it´s a fragrance you smell on a lot of people since its release 2002, I could not resist any longer.
I purchased a 50ml and je ne regrette rien. I´m happy as a puppy. :)

i think Mr Oliver Crisp leave his signature in all his fragrances..i really can detect the same vibe in Black XS for men , Versace Man eau fraiche and this light blue for women..and this signature is the secret of the success of every fragrance Oliver create.
Light Blue is totally unisex fragrance and it can easily be worn by men , it is very fresh , light , attractive yet not weak.

.Longevity: 10/10 it lasts all day on skin
.Sillage: 10/10 incredible the scent trail this eau de toilette leaves Just like Black XS do.
.Scent: 10/10 SEDUCTIVE
i recommend this for everyone , give it a try , dont smell it directly on skin or paper , you will smell it very strong and harsh due to the citrus , but smell it from distance by moving your hand or the paper and this is how people will smell you because for too many fragrances, the projected scent is different from the one on skin , i dont mean totally different but the projected is the same scent but in another better way than on skin. whatever it is really a good perfume in a nice bottle.
10/10

Light Blue is already classic and enormously popular. It is an example how simple ingredients can create masterpiece. Everything here is thoughtful from start to the end. On me it is very attractive tropical scent. There is something very feminine and friendly in its essence. Its like a pair of favorite skinny jeans: you feel comfy but sexy at the same time :)

I wanted to do an updated review on this fragrance sine I recently purchased this for the summer.I lucked out and got a fresh bottle from sephora.I have found that the consistancy in fragrances nowadays to be all over the place.Have you ever smelled a perfume at different stores and each bottle smelled different even though it was the exact scent? That's very common today and very maddening when your a perfume lover.This perfume is one of those scents that if you don't get a good bottle it will smell horrible.I have learned not to buy my perfume from a perfume counter where the heated lights will warm the perfume and make it go bad.Don't let the ladies tell you that that does not wreck a perfume because it does.Heat is the number one cause of causing a perfume to go bad.My mom and I keep our perfumes in their boxes away from light.never keep fragrances in your bathroom!Buy from an online store or from Ulta they don't keep their fragrances under a hot lighted shelf.Back to my review.This has been working awesome for me and is very long lasting even on my dry skin.when I get out of the shower I take unscented cerave body lotion and rub in 2 pumps on my neck and chest and also the inside of my arms.I spray 4 squirts of light blue on my neck and some on the inside of my arms.This lotion is an excellent fragrance base and will not turn the scent of your perfume and its not GREASY!I can get more than 8 hrs with light blue when I do this.I never bought light blue before because I did not think it would last.Ladies use unscented body products with this fragrance and don't buy it if its been under heated lights.This is the perfect sophisticated citrus beach fragrance and is very versatile for day or night.You will know if you got a fresh bottle by being able to smell all the notes in this scent and that goes for any fragrance.Don't be afraid to return your perfume if it doesn't smell right.Your paying for quality and we deserve it.I love this fragrance!

I had quite a rocky start with Light Blue, I found to be sharp and overly citrusy, bordering unpleasant. But I wasn't ready to give up on it since I know that its quite a celebrated fragrance. After wearing it a couple of times, it has really grown on me! I find that it lasts better on clothes than on skin. Light Blue is nothing like the stuff I would usually wear. At the risk of sounding cheesy, its like a breath of fresh air. Its a simple, clean woody citrus fragrance that could easily be classified as unisex. Palette cleansing, invigorating and sometimes, a scent like this is exactly what you would need to get a break from regular sweet, floral or fruity scents. The weather in my part of the world is humid and rainy at present, and whenever I wear Light Blue, it's crisp and fresh scent just makes me smile!

It is a fine fragrance although on my skin it develops a strange acrid note which I don't find particularly memorable. It starts with an intense citrus note which lasts about half an hour, then I detect some sharp apple, just a hint, and this unusual acrid note, which might be the jasmine. In the drydown I can only detect some undefined sinthetic woodiness, although occasionally it makes me think of vanilla without the sweetness.

I am not saying this is not a nice perfume but on me it is quite weak! I was disappointed I thought it would have a strong hold and have a long lasting fresh scent. I tried Giorgio blue on my other arm at pulse point and that was what I was looking for! I don't know what all the fuss is about this scent. I think it has an expensive aroma but it is unfortunate that on me and the spray card it was faint....Lovely bottle and decent price. Try this on before you buy it though.

I am forever going back to it and it doesn't spend too long away from my collection once finished.

First fell in love with Light Blue began in the south of France when the most beautiful French woman was wearing it.

I wouldn't even bother trying Light Blue in the winter, it just smells wrong (almost chemical and metallic, though it doesn't make me any less in love with it). This fragrance was 100% designed and created to be worn in the summer. My personal recommendation is to buy this if you are going on a beach holiday.

Spraying it on is like a burst of happiness, like the sun came out, making everything bright and warm. I love the citrusy opening note, sometimes more effective than a cup of coffee in waking me up! A very clean, sparkling, fresh scent.

The bottle is lovely and simple, with clean cut frosted glass and a silver trim. I love the soft touch velvety box too.

EDIT: I have noticed others mention their disappointment with the staying power; this is an EDT natural spray, so something light is to be expected and it's never going to hang around like an EDP. EDT's often work best when lightly sprayed in your hair. Personally I will spray on the back of my neck so it will just catch this underneath of my hair and also spray before I get dressed- fragrance cannot evaporate as quickly if trapped underneath your clothes and hair.

I recently became engaged, and I heard that it's a great idea to choose a new perfume for this period of time, so that whenever you smell it in the future, you will be reminded of how happy you were right now. What a wonderful idea! So today I went to Nordstrom (because of their famous customer service), and when the saleslady asked if she could help me, I told her that I wanted something new, but I didn't know what. She asked me what I have worn before, and I responded that I used to wear Prescriptives Calyx. She had me smell a handful of other scents, and this one was the winner. I purchased it a few hours ago, and I am extremely happy with it! The real test, though, will be whether or not my fiance likes it. He is very sensitive to perfumes and smells, and it is not easy to find ones he can tolerate. Judging from the other reviews on here, I expect he will not be irritated by this one.

UPDATE: I ended up giving this away. Not because it wasn't a nice scent, because it was. But my high school boyfriend's mother used to wear something similar, so this scent just kept reminding me of my high school boyfriend. That's not good for a scent you plan to wear to your wedding! I do NOT want to be reminded of him. So I tried Oscar de la Renta's new fragrance Something Blue, and it is absolutely exquisite! That is the new winner (for me), beyond a shadow of a doubt!

I tried this scent at the recommendation of several friends. My first test was during the winter, and I just couldn't understand the hoopla surrounding this scent. It was too light and sharp, and didn't last beyond an hour.

I recently tried it again, in late spring, and had an entirely different experience. This time it smelled warm and fresh, citrusy without being sharp, and somehow clean. Some citrus cents make my nose burn, but this is a muted citrus. It still has very close sillage, and didn't last beyond 3-4 hours, but it was a nice pick-me-up scent for a summer morning.

I'm not sure it is a scent I'll rush out to purchase, but it is nice to have a sample-sized bottle for when the mood strikes me.

Update: I recently wore this scent while teaching Vacation Bible School, and had two different 5 year old boys tell me that I smelled good. I generally only use one or two sprays of perfume, so rarely have people comment on my fragrance. The fact that two mentioned it the same day was funny!

This is a nice scent. I was given a few sample vials of it, and while I don't find anything offensive about it (the citrus is not a painful blast to me) it seems pretty unremarkable and it does not last well on my skin.

I believe that it can be lovely on some people, but I'm not really a light summer/sporty scent kind of person and this does little to sway me to those iterations. Am happy to leave this to others to enjoy and wear well.

Love this scent. Very crisp, cool, light, and citrusy. The dry down smells the same as the initial spray on me so no surprises. I'm allergic to most perfumes and this one is one of the few I can wear that doesn't give me a headache. My only complaint is that it doesn't come in Eau De Perfume.

I first smelt Light Blue on a friend when I hugged her and it was such a soft, lovely feminine scent and later on at a perfume shop another friend tested it and I immediately smelt Moschino's "I love love" which I own. I can't believe how differently they smelt on different people!! It's a cute scent nonetheless, but to me completely identical to I love love...

Nice little easy-wearing scent. Perfect for summer - a palate-cleansing fragrance that makes you feel bright and breezy. It's such an unobtrusive scent that you can forget you're wearing it. Non-offensive to coworkers.
I've tried to wear this in cold weather before, and unfortunately on my cold skin it smells too tart, like those citronella candles used to keep insects away on camping trips. Definitely a fragrance for sunshine.

I first saw this fragrance was in the airport, it smelt nice, but I didn't have the couraage to buy it and it stayed on my mind, untill a friend's sister have a bottle of deodorant of light blue in her bath room, now is getting close to summer, i suddenly really really want this deodorant, as I first addicted to perfumed deodorant recently. and this came second to my mind.

Earlier two weeks, I went shopping with my mum and i was dying to smell cherry in the air. but got disappointed, instead I found light blue, the power of this scent is it last in my mind. they had a gift set of this with body lotion and a voyage size, with the body lotion I'm not afraid of the scent going away so rapidly
I couldn't resist it, and wearing it now, I love going to bed with this scent! it wakes me up in the day time, but also put me to bed! ^^

The initial spray had a strong lemon and woodsy scent. After wearing the scent several times, I noticed the scent was similar to cat urine. Unfortunately, the fragrance did not interact well with my body chemistry. I have smelled the fragrance on others, and it smelled pretty nice. Definitely not a keeper for me, but a nice daytime fragrance for those who can carry the scent well.

I clearly recall this as a stand-out at the perfume counter. Beautifully citrus without sharpness, a feat which is probably accomplished by the lovely balance of cedar. However, I found a rather milquetoast, sweet drydown that was disappointing (obviously that doesn't happen with everyone, though). If Light Blue could remain the scent it is for me within the first sixty minutes of application, I would be ecstatic.

It's taken me a while to like this. At first all I got was lemon. It's only after using it for a while that I looked beyond the lemon, noticed some of the other notes (though I didnt recognize the notes exactly) and came to love the drydown, which to my nose is lemon and musk.

Extremely long lasting, though I'm not sure of sillage.

This is bamboo, rose, lemon and cedar on me. I absolutely love this. It's not as popular as it used to be so I don't mind wearing it now :) I can't stop smelling myself when I wear this. Top citrus scent for women! It lasts about 6 hours on me, the first 2 hours being of heavy/moderate silage, and the rest being close to the skin. Even when it is close to the skin though, I can still smell it everytime I turn my head, which is amazing!

This is a bracing citrus and woody scent. It is very simple.

It begins with a razor sharp blast of citrus that is slightly bitter and fresh at the same time. This is followed by a base of dry wood that is similar to driftwood found on the beach. The woody notes have a quality akin to driftwood that may even have a spot or two of light mildew that is earthy and cool. The citrus maintains the freshness of the woods and keeps it from becoming too dry and dusty. It is very casual and perfect for sport.

I don't find it particularly masculine or feminine. It is not as masculine as CK1. But, it's not as feminine as Eau De Givenchy either. It is non-gender specific, literally. It tends to show its more citrusy side on men and becomes woodier on female skin.

I find that the citrus is pervasive and lasts to the end. The woods enter the picture around the 30 minute mark, and stay also- but, have faded to a sandy wood that is almost imperceptable by the final drydown.

The sillage is dependant on the amount applied. If you read reviews about it becoming cloying, this tells you that the fragrance is expansive after application. I noticed that once applied, it becomes twice as strong withing the first 15 minutes or so. I recommend a light application to the wrists and back of neck...wait it out a bit...then, apply another spritz if you want more scent.

The staying power seems to have a mind of its own. Some days I had to reapply every two hours it seemed. Other days, it lasted until late afternoon. I think this might have something to do with humidity. Drier air seems to carry it longer, as humid air washes out the notes. This says that its a delicate composition.

I find it to be quite overpriced. THis fragrance is quite interesting and pleasent. However, it's more of an after-bath splash type scent, rather than a perfume. It's a bracing refreshment, not a memorable cornerstone fragrance.

It can be worn to the office with ease. But, I recommend it for days spent outdoors and vacation times. It is not romantic, but sporty. I like it.

This is the first perfume that I have ever felt comfortable with wearing daily. My family is very sensitive to perfumes in general, and almost any fragrance is irritating and sneeze-inducing to my mother especially. However, this is not irritating at all and pleasant for my entire family, and it is something that I can wear on all occasions with peace of mind - without having to feel self-conscious or worry that my scent is giving others allergies or headaches.

Upon spraying, I am instantly surrounded by a cloud of uplifting and warm citrus; what comes to mind is a wisp of a white cloud being slowly carried across a sunny blue sky by a gentle breeze. Calm and carefree. After around ten minutes though, the smell clings close to my skin, creating a soft and comforting aura. The initial sparkle of citrus greatly recedes into the background during the drydown, and on my skin, the warmth of cedar comes out and mixes beautifully with the light musk for remainder of Light Blue's duration. This is my favorite part of Light Blue, and what makes me love it so much, despite the fact that it is indeed short-lived on the skin (Can smell it on me faintly 2 hours max). However, I have learned that the trick to making it last long is to spray it lavishly on my clothing as well :)

Light Blue, though common, is anything from a boring scent - it is popular for a reason - it is UNIQUE, not in the sense that not many people have it (obviously), but that it is very different from other perfumes currently on the market. I've received compliments while wearing this perfume, and again must emphasize that this is one of the only perfumes I've ever come by that is not irritating to people with sensitive noses or allergies to perfume. It is fresh, clean without smelling soapy, warm, and happy!

I've tried so many citrusy fresh perfumes, and I've never loved something as much as I love this one.

But this one, is not too citrusy and not too strong, it's perfect.

I absolutely love this fragrance but a lot of citrus fragrances turn very sharp on me as I have dry skin,but recently I received a free delux sample from sephora and tried it again.I love the smell of this perfume.Other fragrances try to copy off of this one but I don't think they come close.This is a citrus classic!It reminds me of crisp ocean air and salt water.The florals make it airy and breezy.The drydown is what I love.The amber note in this is very dry and crisp instead of oriental.I can only wear this in the warm spring summer months.This just would not work on my skin in cold weather.This can be worn day and night and when the sun goes down that dry amber and white musk drydown becomes rather alluring in my opinion.This fragrance is earthy yet clean and I think of a california girl who spends most of her days on the beach when I smell this.In hot humid weather the florals and bamboo really shine.Love or hate this perfume its popular for a reason!It really does capture the beach in a bottle without managing to be an aquatic scent.I might buy a full bottle for this up coming summer.I have not been to impressed with the summer fragrances the last couple of years. I am finding out its better to stick with classic scents than chasing after what's new and trendy because lately I've been really disappointed with the new.Stock up on this scent if you love it because I read that in the next few years it will be reformulated due to european fragrance regulations and might not smell the same!

This is a real classic! It smells clean, a little bit spicy and kind of water-ish. It's a really good perfume for work and daytime wear. It really wont offend anyone. It's one of those perfumes when you think it's a persons natural smell. The only downsides is that the bottle is pretty ugly, and it's super expensive. But it's like no other perfume really.

It might be a classic but definitely try this on skin before you buy.
On my cousin, this is gorgeous (and very similar to See By Chloe). On me, all I get is apples and blood. (Seriously. It's very unfortunate. It's a metallic tang, possibly the cedar?)

It is also quite light, almost impossible to suffocate anyone with.

This is very light on me, but I really like it! I was worried about trying this because citrus sometimes turns sour on me, but this stayed lovely and fresh. The combination of citrus and woody undertones makes this a very wearable unisex fragrance without making me feel that I smell like a dude.

i used for a few months before finding out that it's for women. it didn't change my love for the fragrance. i was complimented every place i went. it's a perfectly balanced citrus scent that's great for warmer weather.
my issue with light blue is that it fades off too quickly.

Light, summery, breezy. Fresh air in a bottle. Citrusy clean, hint of light woodsy florals without being acidic or bitter or jarringly bright. Perfect light scent for the summer. I can see why this one is a classic.

(Hint: Be sure to use a fresh tester when you try this one in the stores - it matters!)

One of the best perfumes out there. Yes, it's very popular, but it's the scent I always go back to. It smells great, it's versatile, and can be worn all year round. There's a lot of citrus in it, but I now detect the apple note a lot more than I used to. The other notes play in the background and make a sharper appearance every now and then. This is a very well-constructed scent that is neither cloying, nor headache-inducing. Unisex, fresh, comforting, and sexy.

I enjoy this fragrance, I think of it as my blue jean perfume. It's comfy, feels good and a great companion on any day. On me, at first it has a peach or pear scent, eventually easing into a nice floral-ish, woody scent. It's easy to wear, and safe, without giving the impression that you are trying hard to get noticed. Great as a casual, everyday, not-in-the-mood to get dressed up fragrance, yet has dimension.

as is rarely ever the case... the advertisement for this perfume is ON POINT. instantly i am transported to white sands and transparent turquoise waters. This scent almost induces relaxation and bliss follows.


on me, it is mostly lemon and woods. i get a whiff of apple every now and again, and there's a pretty steady (yet low key) floral backdrop.

My mom started wearing this perfume about four or five years ago. I never got to smell the actual perfume, until now - and I can see why my mom picked this one out. Very light, fresh, and stays close to the skin. Comforting, and reminds me of my mom. Citrus sometimes, and other times when I smell it I get a hint of woody musk, almost like a cologne, which I like. The overall feeling is relaxed and subdued, like the calming effect of the color blue on the mood.

I'll try wearing this again in the summer before going out with friends, and see if it's cheerful enough for me. I like the smell of aquatic scents, but when I get a whiff of them throughout the day, they can turn "sweaty" or make me feel too "blue" - depressed.

I love the fresh citrus in the top notes. Because of the woody accents it isn't flowery girly.
There are other perfumes, which have a strong citrus opening, among these Versense (Versace) and Chance eau fraiche (Chanel). But from these citrus parfumes Light Blue has the best dry down. It remains fresh and casual. While Versace and Chanel return into a sophisticated lady (type directress with coat and skirt), light blue gives you all day long that very pleasant holliday feeling on a Mediterranian island.

I was super excited to finally get a trial bottle of this superstar scent everyone was raving about and it smells just like Bvlgari Omnia Amethyste to me which I also had and gave away because it gives me headaches....unfortunately not for me.

Light Blue is a fragrance one can freely wear as a doctor, teacher -- any profession where up close and personal require a close to the skin and universally lovely scent. Just smelling good without giving out the vibe that you are trying too hard. I feel that the advertising videos mislead sinc they speak sexy. If this perfume is sexy it is because the expression "nothing is as sexy as kindness" is true. This fragrance is not hot nor edgy , but unassuming, peaceful, and kind. Sort of like the color "Light Blue." Who doesn't like light blue?

This is NOT 'just citrus'! It's apples, freesia and cedar too! I've gone through my Light Blue phase - discovered it over ten years ago, pounced on it on sight because it was at a time when I was actually obsessed with the colour light blue - but I still see this as a BEAUTIFUL MASTERPIECE of a fragrance.
I honestly think a lot of the people who diss this frag are just citrus-intolerant. The 'citrus' aspect being too strong is cited a lot. Fair enough, I'm clove-intolerant.
And who cares if it's 'common' because loads of people wear it? It's not a fashion show - if your nose likes it, wear it, sod what other people are wearing!
Glancing through these reviews I'm a bit concerned that someone posting in 2010 said LB had been 'reformulated' and wasn't as good anymore. :(( I haven't bought it for maybe 5 or 6 years, still have the remnants of a bottle that I don't wear because I think it's finally gone 'off', and I always thought 'I'll buy it again some day'.
Incidentally, it was really really cheap to buy in the UK for a while - in the mid-noughties you could pick up a 25ml set with body lotion for about £10. Today I saw that 25ml of EDT alone was £25! Pah!
Really surprised there's so many comparisons to Secret Wish - I had a mini of that that someone gifted me and it was like faintly tropical-scented water. I don't see the comparison but maybe there is one if LB has been 'redone' - YIKES.
One thing I used to notice about LB - it definitely smelled different on different people.

I first smelt this on a stranger at a party, it smelt wonderful - I rushed out to buy a bottle the next day, but sadly it did not smell the same on me.

I like the musky undertones, and the fresh, oceanic top notes, but I find it a bit overpowering and chemical-like after a while. It can be quite heady if you spray too much.

I finished the bottle, but I would not re-buy this.

aaah ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I have officially jumped on the "Light Blue" bandwagon.

Today was my birthday, and my dear friend bought me this as a birthday gift. Took one whiff...and I have to admit, it's a really beautiful fragrance. Light, fresh, and clean...can't wait for the weather to warm up so's I can start wearing it. I tried to stay away from this because almost everybody wears "Light Blue". But now I can see why.

Reminds me a bit of Acqua di Gioia, although not as sweet. I love and have both. Bring on the summer! :)

This does not last very long on my skin. Two hours would be the most. For that alone, it is not worth the money. :(

I have to agree with those who are saying that this fragrance is over rated. It DOES only smell like lemon and powder to me (as pugnose have mentioned). It's not offensive, and yes, it is distinct (I can definitely tell if one is wearing it), but I find it really boring. People who aren't really into perfumes may like this a lot most probably because they haven't experienced much better perfumes. I believe people who wear this are people who would rather be on the safe side of things.

Another thing which I don't like about this perfume is it's not feminine at all. If you want something that would make you feel womanly or sexy, I suggest you look elsewhere.

I rate this 2 stars out of 5.

It's fresh and clean. In her skin it last like 5 to 8 hours and I can say this projects great when it's a hot day. Amazing summer fragrance and very safe.
I really really recommend Light Blue for summer!!!!

I'd heard a lot of things about Light Blue but hadn't tried it on myself until recently. It smells totally different on me than it does my friend. It smells much better on her! It had great projection too and I could smell it all night :-) It's one that your gonna want to try before you buy though!

Love this scent. Smelled it on a work colleague and had to ask what it was. I love the small of cedar and find it very strong in this perfume, that's what attracted me initially. I don't think it overly citrusy, the woodiness is more prominent to me. Lasts well for EDT, why not available in EDP?

As Beatrixel and Pugnose said in their reviews below mine, this fragrance is a very simple lemon/powder blend that's casual and wearable, but otherwise unremarkable. I would agree that it would be a perfectly fine gift for someone whom you don't know well, or for a friend or family member who is newly discovering their "perfume persona", as it were. Light Blue isn't offensive in any way, but it's certainly not memorable either.

Love this scent. It reminds me of being at the beach in the south of France. It has a salty quality to it, which I love. It is really strong when you first put it on, but it dampens down into a beautiful smell. It smells quite different on my skin compared to on a tester, but still retains its 'saltiness' . I think it lasts fairly well, compared to other scents of similar styles

To compose a scent so completely of a single note is an act of bravery, or in the case of D&G Light Blue something that seems more akin to bloody-minded bravado.

The best minimalist perfumes, like the music and the architecture of the same name, deceive with their hidden complexities and depth.

They modulate where they appear not to change. Have acres of back story and back stairs behind false walls.

Structurally they are engineered to perfection.

That is this scent's failing. It lacks both the complexity required to retain our interest and the structural supports to sustain the first high, clear note that is all it ever had to say.

These key components missing nothing remains but gradual dissipation, dilapidation and mostly disappointment.

Ultimately everything falls away to the very edge of being merely functional fragrance.

I received D&G LB a couple of years ago and I had to regift it right away!

Couldn't agree more unfortunately.

Wore this to death, got through several bottles, have spritzed some remains on tonight - think I've moved on to different frags now but Light Blue is still masterful and I'd happily introduce it to those who've never had the pleasure of it before! Perfect for the qualities of youth and freshness.

This scent smells horrible on me. My husband loves it and bought it for me so I am forced to wear it. This is not a feminine scent at all.

This is a perfume that is satisfying my hunger for the warmer seasons of spring and summer. We are in the middle of winter where I live and I just need a fresh pick-me-up scent. So this is definitely doing it, and I may even re-purchase it in the summer if I run out of the purse spray.
I really like the sillage this perfume creates on the wearer because it is nothing like the initial spray where all I can smell is a burst of lemon. It quickly transforms itself into being a floral- then a fresh fruit with cedar scent.
My husband even spoke up about this one, at which point the perfume had morphed with my skin so much that I couldn't smell any fragrance on myself. He said it was 'different' (probably a huge contrast to the nose that is used to smelling Flowerbomb and Stella this time of year) and that it smelled similar to the men's fragrance "Navy". So all in all, on the right skin, this fragrance will give off a 'fresh' effect that is more clean-smelling and unisex on the wearer, almost as if you're not wearing a fragrance.

I like this one so much, just bordering on love, if only the lemon top note would last longer. The citrus is the truest, freshest burst in any fragrance I have ever tested. Once that disappears, within a few minutes for me, the remaining cedary mix is not quite so ethereal. This one has bumped up into my current top three with D&G "The One" and L'Occitane "Citrus Verbena".

Light Blue reminds me of my college freshman days when my friend/roommate wore it often. I've since tried it on my own skin when I received a sample, and on me, it smells like some kind of sugared citrus fruit, fresh yet with a little warmth to it. I think the main reason why I merely like this fragrance, but don't love it, is because it's so common among women my age (early 20s), and I don't like to smell "common".

i personally dont understand the hype about this fragrance at all. i dont think its unique, infact i feel like there are many fragrances that smell simiar to this. also its overly popular...

i dont think it works well with my body chemistry. to me it smells very chemically with really strong artificial lemon. the sweetness of the lemon really gives me a headache and makes me feel sick. it smells like those lemony dish washer soaps or air fresheners. apparently it really gets guys attention, i dont see how! its so strong too.

too bad because i really wanted to like it considering all the good reviews about this and i love all the D&G commercials!

This is a classic. It popularized the fruity floral for better or worse. Many people wear this so it feels very common.

The most important note in this frag is the apple. II is a lovely mouth watering tart thing in the opening. And when the lemon fades, it merges seamlessly with delicate flowers. It's what i imagine apple blossoms could smell like, with a little bit of white musk in the mix.

The lemon is very acidic, freshly squeezed, which perfectly makes the apple so tangy. However it sometimes simply smells like lemon dish washing detergent in conjunction with musk

The bluebell is nice tinkling in the background though it doesn't agree with me? These three components often smelled a sharp and metallic mess my skin. It was summer and i was very disappointed. It wasn't like that when i tested it in store...

I also loathe the cheap plastic cap. It is not secure at all and flimsy. How can consumers bring their bottle with them on the go to reapply? For this price, that should be a given. With a little bit of tweaking, the entire flask could open and close easily like an oversized lighter at the flick of a wrist

i love this fragrance. i'm on my 6th bottle. i get compliments all the time. i have smelled it on other people and always like it, not realizing until they tell me that they are wearing light blue. smells different on everyone.

i especially love the dry down which, on me, is a very clean, woodsy fragance.

other favorite fragrances over the years have been Balenciaga Le Dix, YSL Opium, Fendi, Chanel Cristalle. i find light blue's dry down to be a much lighter version of these scents, which appeals to me now.

Lovely scent! Just what I was looking for. It's fresh and clean, and woodsy too...and is citrus, but yet without being too citrus (I hate too much citrus). The woods seem to balance it out nicely. It makes me think of an ocean breeze. Definitely a nice summer perfume.

I can see how people might say it's nothing super unique, but that doesn't mean it isn't a nice scent. I think it's a really nice all around fragrance for everyday wear in warm weather. I also think it's nice for people who don't want a super complex fragrance; just something clean and nice smelling.

As for it being commonplace...well, I agree with another reviewer that perfumes smell different on everyone anyway. I don't agree that it is unisex.

This is a very fresh, crisp, unisex scent.

For some reason it reminds me of fresh water, citrus soap and a fresh breeze sweeping by some trees. I can say this to me is the typical summery, european scented eau. I remember spanish and italian children cologne smelling like this. In fact, I can even remember my aunt splashing my cousin with something like this when we were younger. I wish I had smelled like this too but I got stuck wearing some violet water instead.

The first stage is watery, crisp, citrus splash and a hint of apple. Then I smell very very subdued hints of flowers and leaves. This stage is not incredibly flowery its just like a breeze that went by some little flowers. Then I get woods. Cedar mostly.

This perfume to me is not feminine, loud or overtly sexual. This is a perfume for lighthearted people who like enjoying simple things and not dwell on the complicated times. I usually wear this in hot climate but I am pretty sure you will not offend anyone if you wear this all year round. I love this stuff !

It's a simple scent, very casual and for everyday wear. It's nothing super special or sexy in my opinion, plus just about everyone owns it so where's the originality?

I just bought this perfume because I was told by so many people and read reviews on this perfume. And I have to say I spritzed it on this early afternoon and the scent is so amazing, the clean soft floral softly sweet with a beautiful soft touch of fruit..... (such a beautiful perfume).... go's into day and into evening. very soft romantic scent I get from this. I really like this on, Its that pretty. Please try this perfume if you hadn't its a very pretty scent and it stays on for about 7 hours or more last so long I was surprised because most perfume don't last that long on me also any age would love this perfume it takes on your own scent in a unique way, My Daughter also loves this one now too. .....

To me, the scent starts plain citrusy but ends up very complex, thick and musky clean. I get the reason why people are crazy about it. It really smells great, to sum it up! The scent can last long depending on the environment (I can still smell it on my clothes after a good 24 hrs).

One downside is the price and that there are a lot of dupes for this fragrance. It is not anymore unique. There are a lot of similar smelling alternatives, branded or not, at a lower cost. Their scent may not be as complex on the paper tests but when worn they can smell very similar. Given that there are cheaper alternatives, it won't be a surprise when you bump into people on the subway wearing something similar.

Nevertheless, D&G will remain luxurious and I feel special whenever I wore the fragrance.

I had to wait forever to finally try light blue, so when I finally did smell it maybe I had my hopes a little too high. I immediately wanted to try it after seeing the green apple note, unfortunately i dont get much of that from this. The first wiff for me is a very strong astringent like lemon scent. Quickly followed by a very true to life cedar closet smell, i dont smell much else but for some reason I always grab for this. I think its just one of those fragrances that are appropriate anywhere with notes that most people wont have a problem with.
Its not my favorite by any means, but it is very calming and relaxing. The best time to put on light blue for me is when I'm climbing into bed.

On the test paper, this was a lovely blend of citrus, floral and woods. I liked it so much I bought it then and there, without waiting a few hours to see how it transformed on my skin. Unfortunately, after half an hour the citrus disappears, the jasmine/bluebell turn cloying and even the hint of cedar can't keep me from smelling rotten. Too bad, since I really like it on others! The scent lasts a long time on skin.

Was not my favorite smells like ammonia and leather to me.

EDIT: I should be fair on this review. I tried to like this fragrance. At first squirt, I picked up that strong ammonia, musky? smell. It reminded me of some of the off perfumes my Grandma would wear. Later it developed into something my Mom would like. She did call me later and said she liked the fragarance. I just couldnt get over the strong ammonia smell. I had my boyfriend smell it and he said it smelled good, but there wasnt anything special about it. Must be my body chemistry. D&G did not want to be my friend. I wore it the next day thinking it might smell differently after a shower. Still that pungent ammonia smell came through and now a cheap leather smell. I don't see leather in the notes maybe its the cedar? I squirted some behind my ear, and continued to be assulted by the ammonia smell while I blow dried my hair. I was hoping for a sweet comforting warmth w/ some femininity while I dried my hair but just kept smelling that strange smell. I wore it all day, but we never jelled and became friends. I gave up, and passed it onto one of our employees who recommended the perfume. Of course, she wore it the next day and it smelled so nice on here. I still picked up that ammonia smell and thought it does have a masculine undertone, but was jealous that D&G wanted to friend her. Well, we parted ways but later on I went to wear the sweater that I had worn during our initial meting and thought how divine my sweater smelled. Sigh, this is a fickle friend if it doesnt like you it's not going to like you.

I absolutely love this perfume beyond belief and I have loved it for years!
It is so fresh but slightly musky at the same time which makes it quite a sexy smell.
It definitely has good sillage and the scent does last a long time throughout the day.
It is definitely a feminine fragrance, not masculine in any way - just fresh!
I do actually recall Marks and Spencer doing a similar smelling perfume a few years ago... But I can't remember what it was called unfortunately! If you didn't want to pay full price for the D&G, maybe go sniff some of the perfumes in M&S and see if they still sell a similar one and give that a try for while.

Now that Dolce & Gabbana LIGHT BLUE has been exalted by The Curator as a masterpiece of olfactory art, I decided that I'd better give it another sniff. I have never owned a bottle, but apparently this fragrance is wildly popular, and its popularity is bound to surge once again, allowing it to rise like a marketing phoenix as a result of the current exhibition--coinciding, I might add, with high holiday shopping season--at the Museum of Arts and Design. Talk about an ingenious marketing scheme... Bravo to the masterminds at P&G!

I've seen several reviewers compare this composition to Bond no 9 SCENT OF PEACE, and I must say that in the opening seconds there is a definite overlap. However, once the bright and shiny SSRI opening has subsided, LIGHT BLUE--at least in its current formulation--dives immediately into a now tired iso-E-super plus ambroxan drydown in near ubiquity among men's colognes. So it is no longer original, if it once was. Was the trend begun by LIGHT BLUE? Or was LIGHT BLUE reformulated to conform with the trend? Qui peut savoir?

In the end, if this is what LIGHT BLUE once was, then I don't believe that I missed out on a great fragrance. If this is only what LIGHT BLUE has become, then I must say that it is misleading to vaunt this current version as a masterpiece of anything but marketing.

I'm going to buy this perfume next week, I absolutely LOVE it.
It smells wonderful on my skin, ahh so amazing. The scent lasts very all day, and I can still smell it the next morning! (not like it used to smell when I just sprayed it on, but very subtle).
The scent is very hard to describe though... to me it smells warm and fresh at the same time, very citrus ish, and reminds me of the ocean, beach,...
My favorite perfume!!!

You know what? It's just everywhere. I just can't wear it anymore it's too popular.

I honestly cannot understand the hype over this. Yes, it is summery but there are other better summer fragrances available too but they are not getting the credit they deserve.

It is nice yes, with hints of lemon, cedar, and musk but it is so generic, goes "bad" very easily, expensive as compared to other similar fragrances like A. Sui's Secret Wish and Lanvin Eclat, most of all it has a tendency to smell really sour and awful on a lot of people. Also, people who wear this seem to drown themselves with this thinking it is very light. When there are 10 people wearing it within 5-meter radius, it can be too much.

Enough already.

Light Blue for Men is a different story though. That is a keeper.

I respect the construction and it was fine when it first came out. I just really cannot wear it.

Goodness. Don't be cheated by the first masculine cedar notes, let the perfume live for a while. On a right person it blooms out sweet fresh powdery flowers. Light Blue is like a boyish girl, you need to dig deep untill you reveal feminine and sexy side. I can get why it is a hit fragrance.

I remember first smelling this when it was brand new. I loved it, had to have it, used coercion on my boyfriend to get it for me. That was in college...many many years/boyfriends later, I smelled it on a strip of paper that came in the mail, and am transported to that time where I am young, happy, and full of life. It still smells good, and its crisp fruitiness is still just as I remembered.

I don't think this should be called LIGHT blue. I always notice when someone is wearing it and they don't even have to be that close to me. The sillage is INSANE. It smells nice, which explains the popularity, but it's just too much!

That being said, I like the light blue for men :D

What a gorgeous, light, summery fragrance! Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue is a combination of citrus, apple, nature, and clean. I detected light flowers, but they only serve as accents to these main notes.

The opening notes are strong of green apple, lemons and cedar-- that smelled wonderful. The scent that emerges is even more authentic and lovely: sweet lemons, patchouli, cedar, freshly laundered cotton sheets, green apples, and a hint of amber and roses.

The perfume has an active, yet seductive, quality to it. It is clean, fresh, young, expensive. Light Blue seems simple, yet it has a quality allure to it. Nothing about it smells synthetic or even like a perfume.

This is a perfect scent for spring/summer-- especially day. The fragrance is not strong and sits close to the body, so people only get to experience this delicate scent if you allow them to get close enough to you.

I applaud the use of rose in this perfume as an accent, as it is so easy for rose to become overpowering and drown out the other scents. The rose perfectly compliments the other notes and brings out the juicy citrus of Light Blue.

Sadly, this fragrance only lasted about 3 hours on me. After that, you could detect it by directly sniffing my skin. I guess that is a good ice breaker.

A lovely go to for hot summer days. It goes on with a lovely hint of fruit (maybe even a peach) but then switches quickly to cedar with a lovely hint of cool breeze of bamboo lightening it up and finishes with amber. The only problem with this scent it that it does not last as long as I would like, so I carry a purse roll on of it if I am having a long day.

I love this perfume. I am gonna be honest though at first I thought I wouldn't like it. I kept smelling and smelling it in the stores. I'd spritz it and walk around and for some reason everytime I smelt it made me think of Marc Jacobs Daisy EDP. They both have a sort of peppery zest about them. I don't know why, but it did. So I kept putting it off. Everytime I went to the mall the bottle called to me. It was a never ending Siren song. I felt like it had more to offer. Finally I made myself purchase it and BOY! am I glad I did.

On my skin, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue starts off with a blast of citrus and cedar. After the blast of citrus dies down just a smidge, the florals come dancing in. I get mostly white rose. And finally holding it all together is the cedar and musk. I love every second of this perfume. Many people criticize it for being so popular and say that you'll find this on just about any woman in the Summer. But it's not Light Blue's fault it smells so irresistible. I say give it a shot. Who cares if we all smell the same? At least we'd all smell gooo-ooo-ood. It's fresh, clean, light and airy. Even better when it's HOT out. And be prepared to smell this for hours and hours. Because this is one lady who's here to stay and I am glad. This is one siren song I don't regret answering.

D&G light blue is VERY CLEAN AND SEXY.. love this stuff ..very unisex too... .too bad it doesn't last long or project and everyone wears/ recognize this scent....

I love this fragrance so much that I find that I compare anything else to it. I am not as fond of the initial citrus smell as I am of the cedar in the dry down. It is the cedar that lasts and lasts and gives Light Blue it's come hither personality. I find that while the scent fades to me, it is apparent to others for hours after I have put it on and that's really fine with me with fragrance. The only fragrance that has even come close to being the love of my life right now is Lolita Lempicka. However, it doesn't seem to have anywhere near the staying power of Light Blue. If anyone has loved Light Blue to death but has found something comparably wonderful, I'd love to know what it is....

The price is steep but well worth it two sprays I'm good for the day for an extra sexy date layer it with strawberries and champagne. Its super hot

Within an hour, it does the following on me:

*Turns sweetly ozonoic with apple and lemon (A tiny T-I-N-Y bit like Acqua di Gioia)for the first ten minutes or so
*Turns sweetly pissy, like redcurrants
*...Just goes pissy. As in cat wee.

I needed to shower and wash my hair anyway, but Having the chance to scrub this off was a very welcome bonus. It's thankfully all but gone now, but even so... not pleasant.

I reckon it's the musk that turns it horrid on me. I remember a Hed Kandi body spray I had once which had musk as a very prominent note as well as berries and that - I kid you not - apparently smelt like weed on me.

Very lemony. Much more citrusy fruity than floral. The citrus does get smoother but keeps its acidic sharp presence through the drydown. It is ideal for who likes lemon scent but regrets its short life in most citrusy fruity florals. In Cheap and Chic I love love the citrus do also have that longevity, but is takes some time for the sourness of grapefruit to be replaced by the acidity of lemon. The opening is different. Light Blue and Éclat D'Arpége are also similar but Éclat D'Arpége is much smoother, does not have have the acidity of lemon, while Light Blue never gets to that stage. Because of that, I like Éclat D'Arpége better but also find it more boring. Light Blue seems to be one of the most popular fragrances out there. I find it quite nice, although I am not usually as fond of fresh fragrances as I am of heavy oriental or floral scents.

Smells like summer by a Mediterranean beach with the scent of a forest wafting in from inland, which was clearly the idea behind it. Perfect daytime summer scent - clean and refreshing with all that citrus and green apple, but anchored down by the woods and amber in the drydown. To me it smells similar to the 4711 or Extra Vieille I bathe myself in on hot summer days, but actually stays put for longer than an hour and has deeper character and a touch more of the feminine. Very much a unisex fragrance that a boyfriend could steal from your bathroom drawer.

It's too bad that in the US everyone and their mother have caught on to this one, so it's not unique anymore. I guess it's because in the States we weren't used to the Cologne water that's so ubiquitous in Germany, Italy and France (Spain too, if you've ever smelled baby colognes like Nenuco), so for us a clean daytime frag that doesn't smell like baby powder or Ivory soap was a novelty. Plus, the idea that women's fragrances don't always have to smell like sexy date night is also a novelty. Which is why I inexplicably smell this on people out at night, as though real perfume of any kind weren't meant to be worn in daylight.
Oh well, I'll wear it proudly anyway even if everyone has it. It's still mine, everyone just seems to *think* it's theirs ;-)

It is September 2012 and I have just purchased my first bottle of D&G Light Blue.
The first time I wore it my husband said, "What smells so good?"
The second time I wore it we were taking a walk and he smelled the air, "Something smells good."
Yesterday was the third time I wore Light Blue and he said, "You smell good."
He thinks it smells like trees, flowers, fresh air and the ocean breeze.

I'm not a big fan of lemon perfumes and this one is all about lemons. The only thing I really adore about it is its last notes. I'm patiently waiting for this perfume to fade away (on the clothing) leaving me its final "breath" which contains cedar with musc and something else really unique I can't tell - all that smells wealthy!!

Light Blue is very fresh and clean smelling but it still manages to have depth. Even though it has that "out-of-the-shower" feel to it, this is no body splash! Its top notes are very citrusy and a little sharp, but it settles to a pleasant floral and musky base. I can't imagine anyone being bothered by this scent. Don't particularly find it sweet at the least either.

Downside is that it's turned into a very common scent and to me, that it is nearly unisex, when I prefer girlier, feminine fragrances.

I honestly think this can be worn in any occasion, day or night. But I do get people that live in colder temperatures thinking otherwise.

This fragrance is very light and fresh! I mainly smell lemon zest with some musk. Very clean, something I would splash on every once in a while when I'm at home or going for a quick run to the store, but not really a fragrance I would wear when I go out shopping or out to a resturant. I wish it was less expensive since its only an EDT(which I forgot to mention is great because you can splash this fresh, clean scent throughout the day without it being too overpowering)

My experiences has been very confusing.
The very first time I got to smell this, was many years ago, at my friends house who had two cats.
What a mix; grimy cat pee smell floating in the air and a beautiful lady wearing Light blue. Pungent and sour.

BUT...
Now, as I bought a bottle of my own, i can feel its beauty and freshness in a whole new way! Shower fresh feeling with ripe oranges.
I like it so much, i bought a deodorant also.
Actually, I was "obligated" to buy Light blue because my coworkers are allergic to odours and perfumes.
Somehow Light blue is less allergenic than others, one of my coworkers is going to buy this to herself.

This has to be one of the most popular scents ever, right? I can still smell this around me. I had a bottle of it in my teenage years, but I find it rather boring now.

The first times I tried LB, I was not thrilled. Too much citrus in the topnotes...

But now I can definately see the appeal.
The smooth musky/woody/fruity drydown is both sexy and comforting. I can smell vanilla too, but I seem to be the only one that get vanilla from this? Perhaps it`s the amber I smell.

It`s sweet, but not candy sweet, more "adult" sweet.
It smells kind of care free and natural, like you haven`t tried to hard. Fresh and clean, sort of skin scent-y.

Ugly bottle, and a very big price tag though.

I own this, and yet I still selected "want" because as much as I spritz on, I find myself still wanting perfume. I first smelled it in a magazine and was really intrigued - probably because it mixed with the chemicals in the paper and produced a greener (not yellow/citrus) botanical smell.
Now that I own it, I find that it fades about 1 second after application. I have literally spritzed it all over myself, immediately walked by a coworker & asked her if she detected anything. She said no.

days later, someone approached me in a CAFETERIA and said she could smell the D&G from a mile away and it was heavenly for her. So glad other people are enjoying my purchase. The next person who compliments it is getting charged $10 for the experience they're having that I'm not.

Light Blue is a really fresh, crisp and clean scent. I'd avoided it initially because I thought it smelled too masculine right out of the bottle but on my skin it's a different story. The fresh florals and fruits come out and add a nice sweetness to the scent. I can't see this smelling offensive to many people, it's a nice, clean summery scent. It really does smell very similar to Anna Sui's Secret Wish. Makes me wish I hadn't given Secret Wish away, I was reminded how much I liked it by sampling Light Blue today!

Dolce & Gabbana is a fresh lemon zested up with cedar for a soft spiciness, crisp green apple, and lush bamboo. This is probably one of the most reviewed fragrances on fragrantica. It’s become one of those staple fragrances for every woman’s perfume wardrobe. It’s the perfect light citrusy summer scent!

the perfect scent for summer. smells light, clean and fresh. i hated it at first because it smells a bit weird but once its once your skin the scent does changes into this amazing clean fresh scent. i live in a hot humid country and this is the only scent that could last on me for the whole 6-8 hours without having to reapply. got lot of compliments from this one. a must have for every ladies out there.

There are some quality control issues with this one. I buy from reputable stores and sometimes I get a bottle that is just wonderful and other times, pure water with just a hint of fragrance. These stores are always good about exchanging or taking the item back but you can't walk into a store and just buy the darn thing with confidence these days.

When it's good.. it's breezy and light but the base notes of cedar last for quite a long time.

When it's off, it's fresh but watery and last for maybe 30 minutes tops.

It's too expensive for it to be so fleeting.

This smells exactly like Moschino Cheap & Chic. When I tried on Light Blue it smelled so so familiar, and I couldn't put a finger on it. then I realized that it smells exactly like Cheap & Chic, which my sister has and I've put on multiple times. It's a summer fragrance, not very sexy or sensual, just fun and light.

This DG is really not for me. I prefer another scents - more deeper or stronger. And if i don´t want to annoy ppl with strong scent in hot weather or so, there are really better light fragrances than Light Blue.
That´s really mystery for me, why this scent is so popular.
I love south Italy, but this doesn´t remind me anything like that.
It´s just very fresh and i guess it can give you feeling of "cleanness". But i can´t stand it anymore on me.
I gave it to teenage daugher of my friend.

I had high hopes for this fragrance, but was disappointed in the way it smelled on me. All I got was a blast of lime and apple with a chemical dry down. I gave it to my friend, and interestingly, it smelled great on her. I guess it goes to show that you really have to try a fragrance on before you buy it.

I've had this perfume since high school. I like it. But, I don't love it. I think there's something to be said for its popularity and the fact that it has been selling so well for years: I would much rather smell Light Blue in a crowd than, say, Victoria's Secret Heavenly, which is just as ubiquitous. However, on my skin Light Blue smells great for about an hour, and then morphs into this very strange "ashtray" scent. I don't mean to say it smells like cigarettes or tobacco- I adore tobacco based scents- but it smells like dead ash. Dry, dusty, old ash. For that reason I either don't wear it or keep reapplying like crazy so I never get to that stage.

When I first got it as a gift, I don't remember ever smelling any ash, but now it is quite prevalent! Could be that my bottle's gone bad, but I store my perfumes really well, and in any event I won't be repurchasing once I run out.

It's fresh and zesty, and I do like it, but it's rather one-dimensional on my skin. I get a whole lotta lemon and not much else. Maybe some musk.

So, it's good, but definitely overrated and not something I would wear to get noticed because so many people have it.

OMG, why are people so incredibly harsh? Many, many people love Light Blue. I've always had a soft spot in my heart for it. Although I don't own it, I'd like to. Even my 70-year-old eldest aunt wears it. That makes me feel kind of strange--but I guess the Mass Appeal is obvious.

It's a lovely example of a strong cedar-based fragrance. I don't come upon those very often. And musk is my weakness too.

Those who might bother to read my reviews know that I LOVE projection and longevity. Light Blue is just that--Light. It performs just the way I expect of it.

So there you have it. Plenty of reasons why people love this perfume. I have all kinds of high-end fragrances, but Light Blue is still a favorite, and a classic as far as I'm concerned.

Well, so many my friends say they hate this smell. Tastes differ, but the only problem I've got with this scent is that it evaporates so quickly (within an hour or so) that it seems you never even sprayed it on, not once. I mean, honestly! The Portofino version is more intricate, but it lasts the above mentioned hour and then evaporates just as quickly. The funny thing is that before having tried the tester at the shop I was 100% sure I bought a fake, but no siree! This is the real deal, a lot of money for 1 hour weak lemony scent. :-/

Tell me why anyone would really pay for this? I don't understand why people are crazy abut this scent!

It's a room spray not a body perfume! citrusy and horribly sour after a few sprays, I don't recommend this perfume because after a while you do get a headache from it and you'll end up with 3/4 of the bottle untouched.

At first you think "Oh, its clean and fresh" but after a while it gets to you and ends up being the perfume you use to get rid of the bad smells in your room, rather than use it on your body. Trust me, as amazingly fresh you find it now, you'll regret buying this in due time. You'd wish you could box it off to your friend who accepts all perfumes to go with her " collection"

After hearing so much hype about light blue I had to get some! MY goodness it is expensive :0 lol! I opted to buy a sample on ebay and I loved it the first time I wore it. Then something very strange smelling wafted from me my second time wearing it. It made me kind of self conscious because it smelled rather unpleasant. Upon further investigation I found the culprit...CEDAR, very strong cedar and cedar infused lemon!

I love citrus scents for summer and lemon is an especially appreciated note when done right, but the cedar made me cringe :( Must be me skin chemistry because it smells AMAZING on a test strip and on others, but on me this is rancid!

I wish that light blue smelled as good on me as it does on many other lucky people, but this is a huge mess on me! Sigh* At least I know to avoid cedar in perfumes :)

Okay, so I discoverd I like this fragrance very much. But why doesn't it last for half an hour!!?? Seriously, I put it on, can smell it for 20 minutes and then it's gone! Ppff why oh why!!?? It's such a shame! Previously the same thing happens to me with Daisy by Marc Jacobs and Viva la Juicy.. Had to give them away in the end, because what is the point in wearing a fragrance if nobody cam smell it on you, including yourself..

I just purchased Light Blue today and have been wearing it all day. Today is a hot and sunny day. It goes well in this kind of weather.
I have to say that I don't always liked LB. I tested it several times over the last few years, even on skin and I didn't liked it. It somehow smelled a little stale and too light on me.
I don't know what happened, but I was in search for a new summer fragrance to take with me on vacation. So I gave it yet another try. This is perfect. It is very light, fruity, floral and very smooth and feminine.
I absolutely don't agree that it could be unisex. No, it is so soft that it oozes feminineness.
Also I don't get the comparisons between this and Cool Water. I hate the smell of Cool Water Woman (Cool Water Men is pretty nice though) and this smells nothing like it.
When on the skin sometime I a get a pineapple note. I know it's not listed, but that is the impression I get. Nothing wrong with that because I like pineapple.

EDIT:
I am falling HARD for this fragrance!! It smells so good. To me it is a comforting and relaxing fragrance. I feel so calm when I smell it. It is just perfect! It has been a long time that I felt this strongly about a fragrance. I am going to make this my summer signature fragrance! Also the (to me) pineapple note is very nice :)

I didn't like this at first, and honestly am still not entirely sure I do. I think there is too much cedar in here. But there is something about it that makes me want to smell my wrist. To me, this is most certainly a summer scent. I would not wear this during the fall or winter time personally, but I think it is nice for summer heat and beach days, because it has a lemony saltiness to it that reminds you of summertime. I have not received any compliments on this one so I will probably not use it. This fume is an enigma to me.

I've had both I Love Love and Light Blue. To me they smell exactly the same until the drydown. While I Love Love is lighter; Light Blue is, I would say, warmer! Also the jasmin and the bamboo in LB smell wonderful on my skin, wich I love! They both last the same on me. About 6 to 8 hours!
But I love both and can't choose only one. Maybe I'll just finish my brand new ILL and when it's over, I'll buy LB again! Then back to ILL... :)

I love this, I first smelt this on a friend and the way it reacted with her chemistry was incredible- both heady and fresh, just yummy!

I'm a fan of gourmonds, but normally err towards the soft vanilla perfumes, so this is a bit of a novelty gourmond for me. Sadly, on me, the perfume does not take on that magical exotic quality it had on my friend, but certainly has a pleasant enough feel to it that gives me an instant lift.

Men tend to love or hate, BF seems to shy away from citrus so is a bit of a miss for him.

Great for a delicious summer fragrance, works well in the Sicilian Spring too ;) (tried and tested on my trip last year!)

Dear Light Blue, I really tried to stay away from you. Your popularity, I thought, was just to much. And tried and tried I did. But your cedar proved to be just the right touch. I found myself compelled to spritz you on every time I was in a store where I unknowingly sought you out, needing a fix. But atlast you enslaved me into your masses.

Clean Lemony green apple crispness giving way to cedars commanding entrance. I think this is a wonderful summer fragrance. It sooths away any rough edges of the day. I constantly bring my wrist to my nose for a fix. On me it hangs close to the skin after the first hour. And needs a reapply after about four.

Yes, I'm an addict. Back off! I've got a bottle in my hand and am not afraid to use it!

This is my go-to fragrance. It's clean, fresh and very citrussy. What I like about this fragrance is that I can use it even when I'm feeling sick, it doesn't make me feel worst. It's great to use in hot weather since it's not heavy. I know that many people use it in the summer but I use it year round. It lasts around 8 hours on me which is not bad at all.
My husband loves it on me.

Light and fresh fruity floral fragrance.

The most noticeable notes are the the apple note, the bamboo note and the cedar note. In general this fragrance smells lemony with a woody cedar base.

This fragrance is a good choice for summer, because it smells light, fresh and I wouldn't call it sweet.

Not my favorite of the fresh fragrances, but it's interesting enough and somehow this fragrance is my perfume wardrobe leader of getting compliments.

Something I've always complimented on others, and never bothered to pick up myself. I bought a bottle today, on a hot Las Vegas, over 100 degree day...and it did not disappoint! This fragrance flourished on my skin in very hot, dry weather! It starts with a very soft sparkling fruit spritz, and dries down to an soft wood...maybe even a little salty and very beachy. This is definitely not a fruit salad,but it isn't a musk bomb either. It is very well blended and light. It works like magic on my skin. I'm glad I finally gave in!

I tried on a sample one lazy morning, a sample that I have had for a year now, I totally forgot I had it on as I had been cleaning and doing laundry...the moment I sat next to my boyfriend he exclaimed about how amazing I smelled and asked if I had put anything on...I said no forgetting I had it on and he leaned in and said you smell so good you totally put something on and finally I was like oh wait yes I did! I couldn't believe how he perked up, he never compliments my perfumes. This is a must have absolutely amazing scent :)

This reminds me very much of sweet lemonade. It's a refreshing blast of summer. I am unfortunately somewhat anosmic to it, so it doesn't get much wear until the summer months, when it seems most appropriate and the heat gives it maximum wear/projection. The bright, lemon-y sweetness fades to cedar quite quickly before seemingly vanishing on my skin, though I know others can still smell it because I always receive compliments when I think the sillage has vanished. I contemplated purchasing Light Blue for years because of its popularity (I prefer something I won't smell on others), but in the end, the fact that men go crazy over this was too compelling too ignore. A classic that still finds its place in my summer rotation.

Edit: Somehow, the folks at D&G know how to throw together a man-pleasing scent. My new guy goes crazy for Light Blue, The One, and Rose The One - more so than anything else I've worn. A little frustrating that all of my higher-end French perfumes have been sitting on the shelf lately while this little number (made in Germany no less) gets all the play; but hey, if it works, it works. ;)

I'd rate this perfume 3 of 5 stars. I like it but, I don't love it. I used to own it and I'd like to buy it again to wear, since this summer is going to be a blazing hot one.

The initial note on me is very juicy apple. The middle notes of lemon (and something that smells like limes and melons) all with a base of musk.

It reminds me of a summer melon & orange salad, all with out being too sweet.

To me this smells exactly like Nanette Lapore's Shanghai Butterfly, which I used to own also.

Light Blue is the smell of summer, the sun, the lazy days of walks on the beach. Reminds me of the summer holidays. Although I think I am right in saying that can be used all year, making it a good choice for a signature scent.
It is a joyous fragrance, full of life and youth, but adapts well to all ages.
It's nice and feminine.
At first I had a different opinion, I thought it was boring and it was very popular in my country is a widely used fragrance and I did not understand why but now ... I succumbed to its charms! ;)

Sillage 9/10
Longevity 9/10
maybe I should put a 10/10 not sure

Light Blue es el olor del verano, del sol, de los días relajados, de los paseos por la playa. Me recuerda a las vacaciones de verano. Aunque creo que no me equivoco si digo que puede ser utilizado todo el año, lo que lo hace una buena opción para un perfume firma.
Es un perfume alegre, lleno de vida y juventud, sin embargo se adapta bien a todas las edades.
Es agradable y femenino.
Al principio yo tenía una opinión diferente, pensaba que era aburrido y que era muy popular, en mi país es un perfume muy utilizado y yo no entendía por qué pero ahora... he sucumbido a sus encantos! ;)

one of the best Citrus musky scents i used to love..so easy to wear..it's not just a Summer fragrance to me, i actually like to wear this in Winter..personally the dry down smells warm and powdery

you can always tell someone is wearing D&G LB, it is original..it stays for hours and the notes stay the same..

love the package of it..the blue lid and frosted glass is classic and timeless..slim..perfect for trips..even my 100ml bottle works just fine..

i likes to wear it when i was in a t-shirt and a pair of blue/colored jeans or shorts..

occasionally i wore it at night when i was in a single colored dress..it was a very nice scent when you just want to wear something simple..clean, citrusy and woody.. doesn't suit someone who is after a sweet or very feminine scent..it's definitely unisex

Light Blue is a fresh happy sent. I've had I Love Love for a while and love the scent, so when getting Light Blue in a blind buy, I found it to be so similar, as others are saying here. However, I find Light Blue is a bit more lemony and with a hint of apple, and it gives more of a nostalgic feeling to me...a bit softer. I Love Love is more clean orange/grapefruit to me, and more of a pick-me-up, with maybe a hint of cinnamon (big red?). Personally, if I had to choose between the two, I do prefer I Love Love (the bottle of which is also just as fun!).

Ok, i wrote an earlier review on this. Even more obsessed with it now......

I am 100% sure that they put some human version of catnip in this, I can't stop thinking about it,all day every day, I had to actually stop myself using it because I went through 100ml in a month.

It's very lemony, but like an irresistable, thick, luxurious, magnetic lemon with little hints of woodiness, I don't even like the smell of lemon that much!!

And although there are so many reviews, I've been obsessed with this for the last year and have only knowingly smelt it on one other girl when it wafted past.

It's so fresh, and unique, and long lasting (if you can't smell it on yourself, others can still)

Beautiful smell, I can't believe the new 'Portofino' or whatever it's called smells so boring. or maybe they just didn't use the catnip in that one, who knows.

Go and buy it ladies!!!! And even men could get away with this. anyone just go and get a bottle.

Although I had great expectations for Light Blue after so many good reviews I got frustrated. First, I like remarkable scents,and often prefer strong ones. This I had to keep sniffing my arm trying to feel, even right after applying! I have to say I don't like citrus at all, but I can recognize the quality in other some other citrus, like Donna Karann by DK. Second, the fixation was terrible on my skin, lasting about 40 minutes, nothing left after that. It's the same for me with Daisy on that aspect, but at least with Daisy I get to enjoy 40 minutes of an exquisite, delicate smell. At last, though it wouldn't prevent or motivate my interest in a perfume for itself, i found the bottle to look cheap, and it added to my bad impression of the product.

I regret it is so popular, a lot of women in every age use it that's why it started to be so.. ordinary.

I would like to forget about its popularity and start discover beauty of this fragrance one more time..

It is very sensual, gentle, fresh but not too fresh - subtle refreshing I would say - and a little creamy as well.
Fresh fragrances are usually very simple and easy, but Light Blue is elegant and sophisticated.

This perfume is maybe the only one I have been asked maaany times: what a scent you are wearing?
And it is true that I fell in love 10 years ago with Light Blue. Smelled best on white, mans shirt. Was like a summer breeze in a very warm day. Made me feel `àfter shower ´´even if I was sweating my ass off working in a small sea town.
Well, with Light Blue happened what happens with lovers. Gone with a wind ;) I don´t regret but there is no chance to go back. BUT... It is still chance for someone else to fall in love with Light Blue.

I thought I loved this when I first tried it years ago, but found it took on a purely alcohol stench on my skin. However, on other people it is all that it claims to be in the description, so fresh and clean. No one ever told me it smelled bad on me, only compliments, but I couldn't stand myself. Also not a good choice for me as it is so widespread and overly popular. I need to be somewhat unique.

The opening is pure chilled lemonade and then it turns into fresh rice pudding on my skin. I can find creamy vanilla notes that are not listed, together with milky cooked lemon peel. The cedar and Granny apple notes are there from the beginning to the end. I can understand the success of this fragrance, as it is complex but easy to wear, nice, appealing and has good longevity and sillage too. It is a shame that is so widespread that it is not exclusive at all, you can smell it on everyone everywhere.

I owned this scent after my aunt wore it and loving the smell, but when I had it I can count on maybe one or two hands the amount of times I wore it....it was just never a WOW factor on me. Oh well, everyone else wears it, I mean everyone. Glad I had it my sophomore year in highschool when no one was wearing it.

I used to love this scent, but one day, I stopped loving it, gave me an instant headache from that point on. Ended up giving it to my aunt because the scent would cause me to vomit, maybe my preferences changed. If I smell it on anyone else, I just get a headache, but when I spray it on myself, I vomit. This scent was nice and light when I enjoyed it though, but beware.

I agree 100% with VogueBoy. Light blue does not smell similar to eclat d'arpege nor to I love love nor to versace man eau fraiche except the first blast. The way these scents develop, they bid each other good bye and take different routes. Maybe they are similar in type but not in smell.

There are so many reviews about this perfume so i could not resist to add mine.I agree with many of you here.I think LIGHT BLUE is a legend already.When i bought my first bottle,my husband wanted me to spray it every single day.And as far as i know he is not the only one who adores it .Everytime i used to wear it, there were many men asking if i was single or married! No other comments!

I really don´t understand why so many people compare Light Blue to I Love Love and Eclat d´Arpege, maybe they are the same type of scent but definitely not the same or close to the same... Light Blue is just very citrus&green apple freshness a bit same as I Love Love which is more fruity sweet and finaly Eclat d´Arpege is definitely not the same scent as Light Blue except the very citrus opening which last few seconds and then disapear, after that Eclat is absolutely different lilac-peachy-tea scent which has nothing to do with Light Blue

it is not adequate to compare fragrances just on the first sniff

Dolce and Gabbana has a NEW Light Blue that Nordstrom JUST got in stock today called, Light Blue Dreaming in Portofino and it is DELISH! It's a lot sweeter and not as musky as this one. I Got a sample and I'll be testing but it is a limited edition for the summer so I'll be making me decision quickly : )

I like it, I really do. I expected it to be a lot fruitier than it really is, it isn't so much fruity as it is heavy on the citrus at least at the beginning. Also, after 2 hours I can still smell it on me, which says a lot.

I think it's a great summer fragrance but sadly an old classmate of mine in law school has ruined it for me forever :/ she wore it throughout and had the worst body odour issues despite dousing herself with Light Blue, lets just say - Light blue mixed with sweat - not the best combo! I just can't bring myself to buy/wear this fragrance cos it reminds me of her b'o issues. Sad!

Very good for the summer, because conveys a freshness and lightness as well as a sweet and elegant scent.
Although many people use this perfume, it will always be the "light blue"!
Fantastic! :-)

Oh, Light Blue...how much I wanted to like you.

After hearing rave reviews about this scent, I tested it. Unfortunately, Light Blue is nothing special.

On the first initial spray you get a strong burst of Lemon, and not much else. Even hours later, I can only smell Lemon. No hint of any florals, woods, or musk.

If you like zesty lemon scents, then Light Blue is for you. However, Light Blue is not unique or very interesting. Perhaps you may want to save your money and buy a bottle of Lemon Pledge. :)

When I first smelled this I thought, hmmm, what's the big deal. Then one day I sprayed it on my 12 year old daughter, we always sample fragrances together, so fun to see which we both love and hate. Well, I realized there is something not only fresh about it, but I think it is beautiful. Not fussy, just beautiful:)

We are both hopelessly addicted to it:)

Overall, well blended fragrance for someone who likes to smell good without making a statement. Definitely spring/summer.

It's pretty, but not substantial or complicated. I think there are better, more exciting options for me. Way too much apple on top. Actually, this helped me decide that I do not like apple on my body. FIne for soap, but not fragrance. If this had more cedar & bamboo coming through, I'd be more interested.

The jasmine is not overdone, which I applaud. Too many fragrances today over use their jasmine.

Regular wear for me 4 hours.

This is one of those perfumes which beauty I don't realise when I'm wearing it myself. When I spray it on it feels nothing special, too casual and boring. Nut when I smell it on some other people I don't recognize which perfume it is, it smells just wonderful. I have asked a couple of times what perfume my collegue and friend were wearing and I was so surprised it was Light Blue. My bf really likes this scent when I'm wearing it, so did my ex aswell so it must smell pleasing to men aswell :)

I first smelled this about 8 or so years ago on a lady at a restaurant and just had to ask her what it was - on my next pay-day I purchased a bottle...it's all I wore...when that finished I bought another. I think I must have gone through about 4 or 5 bottles. But, having OD'd on it in a big way, I can safely say it's out of my system. It's a lovely fresh, summery scent and lasts forever! Funnily enough though, no-one ever said to me how nice it was! But it is a lovely fresh perfume and every time I smell it on someone else it brings back warm memories.

Refreshing, simple and juicy. Decent throw but doesn't suffocate (actually, I'm not sure it is capable). I mostly detect apple, lemon and cedar. It's happy and very likable, you can't go wrong with this fragrance, but there are so many others like it. I think it would make a safe gift as long as you like citrus.

The first time I smelled this one, was on a colleague, years ago, when it first came out... A few days later I went to the store and picked up a bottle. It has a sexy, fresh smell. Ideal for hot summers. I think I went through two bottles. A good perfume. But I used it a lot... and now it's enough. Nevertheless a good perfume with good lastingpower.

I've always wondered what this smelled like? Everyone is always saying how wonderful it is. So I stopped at Walgreens to pick up some deodorant and there it was a bottle sample. I asked the lady behind the register if I could sample it. I was thinking this was gonna be awesome. I really don't know what the big deal is? Smells like lemon. Whoopee?!!

I used to have I love Love and Funny, I can see why people find similar but they are not...
I love Love is way much sweeter, and Funny doesn't have the woody notes that LB has.

Light blue is way more grown up comparing with other two scents and more lonlasting. I like wearing it during winter too, when I want something light to calm me...
It can make my day!
Unfortunately too popular and too expensive :(

Was expecting a light, summery, crisp citrus scent -- got a sort of lemon furniture polish fragrance, with a hit of bitter woody astringent, instead. I can't find anything feminine about this fragrance at all ... for that matter, I wouldn't recommend it for men either! Just not an attractive fragrance.

It makes you feel good, in peace. The lemon is the first note, and there's also something sweet. It brings me back to my childhood. Great for summer, but in winter it could make a good job if want something that warms your days.

I am amazed by how many people think this is similar to Moschino Cheap and Chic. The numbers of reviews must also be a record. Oh!
2002 my sister and I were in Alcudia and went to a perfumeshop the very last evening. That was the first time I smelled Light Blue and I was taken by its charm and beauty. The sad thing is that you could smell it on every people around you and that was the reason that my interest faded away. It is a fruity delight, extremely cozy, and perfect for every occasion BUT, too common.

Fresh and inoffensive, this is a great everyday perfume. I love the way it smells in the bottle, but unfortunately, the citrus notes soured on me. I typically prefer warmer orientals, but thought this would be a great summery scent for me. After all, everyone has it, so why wouldn't I love it as well?

The fresh citrus just didn't mingle with my body chemistry well. This is a great perfume for many, but beware that the acrid lemony notes might not be for everyone. The scent does not last long and practically disappeared after a few hours. All I was left with was a slightly more sour odor at the end of the day.

I have a little story with this perfume. At first my dad told me about it and when I smelled it, I didn't pay much attention to it. Months later I bought it after seeing some reviews, and well wanted to try it..

It has a very fresh clean smell, perfect for everyday, but the surprising part is, how much men love it. The first day I wore it, I was told over and over again of how good I smelled. My boyfriend always comments when I wear this perfume, and it lasts all day. I just love it. <3

definitely worth the money, I wish I had a bigger bottle :)

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is the perfect scent for the summer. It smells so clean and fresh with a hint of wootsy and citrus notes. However, I totally have to agree with a few of these reviews it seems like everyone and their mother has this fragrance which for me thats a bomber! :-( Another thing is that its super light and doesnt lasts all day, atleast not on me. But I will still recommend for everyone to give a try.

My favourite perfume in the world! Funny thing is when i was 16 i smelt it in a perfume shop at the airport and i hated it! Either it was a very old bottle or my tastes in perfume just changed, but i adore it now! It has the freshest, cleanest smell ever. I find this has been copied alot, and i can only wear light blue not any of the other brands that have tried to copy it, because they never smell very nice to me. I love love just smells too "spicy"

My favourite part is not the first spray when it is still very lemony, but when you've had it on for a while and it jsut smells...clean, like fresh clothes or something. It makes me happy everytime i smell it reminds me strongly of happy summer day. I think i will always come back to this perfume.

Also i hear people saying "everyone wears this" maybe it's more popular in the usa, i'm from the uk and it's a rare occasion when i smell this on someone, love when i do though.

The fragrance can be very annoying but it's also uplifting. I wear it only from time to time, because it can make you feel annoyed of the strong one note going on and on (lemon, apple, cedar). It's fresh and clean and has a pleasant wood note. Light Blue is also similar to Moschino's I Love Love - I Love Love has different citruses. I see similarity to L'Imperatrice in the meaning of uplifting mood and going on high note all the time. Definitely not my favourite but who doesn't know it yet (are there any?), may try.

This is a lovely scent. The feminine version smells almost like the male version, the only difference is a distinct sweet note. It is fresh, long lasting and very nice. I do not smell it on everyone and I asked my SA if she sells a lot of it and she said the sales of it are mediocre and she has noticed a decrease over the years. None the less, this is a staple piece. Perfect for summer or days when you want to feel summerish!

Perhaps one of the most copied fragrances. D&G Light Blue, I believe, is among the most popular citrus woody fragrances. It remains essential to every perfume collector's wardrobe or if not, familiar to everyone who cares about perfume. If you do not own it, you know how it smells like. Light Blue is one of those fresh fragrances that have good lasting power, fresh without being too sour, and feminine without being too girly. Light blue is easy to like, almost like a white T-shirt. Overly popular, very distinctive, an indispensable staple. Wear it anytime you cannot think of what fragrance to wear. Pleasant and failsafe, like a crisp shirt freshly laundered in lemon tinged detergent--a perfect "pick me up" fragrance on warm days.

I dont understand the hype, this parfum is OK. The scent is not warm or sexy. But a cold one.. just like the add depicts. I think men could wear this also.Don't like the citrus that is in it. What kind of women want to smell sexy like a citrus :p

I used it a lot. But just never seem to really love it. This cant match up to the sophisticated parfume's of Dior or Chanel. I wouldn't splurge on this there are better parfumes on the market.

The bottle needs a serious revamp! Shame on you D&G

Huh. Well, I don't really have alot to say about this one, but plenty of other people do, so it's probably all covered....
This is very popular, and I guess I can see how it suits a ggod deal of people easily. To me this is fine. It's inoffensive and easy. Not beautiful to me, but not unpleasant either. Just meh. Maybe that's just my chemistry. But if it works really well,for you, nice :) It's all about personal taste.

I bought this about a year ago after smelling it on a co-worker (that sounds a bit odd lol). It was really nice on her and thought it would be a good choice. The first week of wearing it was ok, it didn't smell quite as good on me as it did one my co-worker but not bad. Soon I started to notice the acidity turning against me, the scent started to smell faintly like urine on me. Turns out I'm one of those people who can't wear scents like this. Overall it didn't work for me but I have smelt it since on other people in passing and it's non-offensive and pleasant, but nothing special. If you want something lighter and cheaper (in price) try 'I Love Love' by Moschino.

I am so over this perfume. The smell of it actually makes me angry!! lol I smell it all the time on other people and t makes me dislike them immediately.

Ah the power of smell, is all I can say.

I'm not saying that this is a bad perfume, I actaully liked it when it first came out. It's just that it's too invasive, and if you're tired of smelling it...the fact thatt it's thick and far-reaching will make you end up HATING it.

Not to mention the musk in it is wayto close to that "warm humans" smell that you get in large crowds or off people who are fotunate enough to have clean smelling sweat, which just adds to the intrusive quality of the perfume. I find it to be quite rude! lol

This fragrance can be a fantastic palate cleanser if you tend to favor moody chypres, dramatic orientals and exuberant florals. Using Light Blue as a change of pace is like throwing open your windows on the first warm spring day after a long winter.

Smells too masculine to me, but not sexy at all. LB is pungent and not in a pleasant way. Yves Rocher makes a LB dupe called Naturelle, the top notes are slightly more green and fruity, but the base notes smell just like LB. That one is a lot more bearable to me than LB.

Suburban summer personified. I don't picture Italy here at all. It's clean, fresh, watery, softly sweet, a bit tangy. A bit green...I've lived in a big New England college city for the last two years for school. In Winter, this city and the areas surrounding it, are known to get "Nor'easters", which cause havoc and bring tons of snow, traffic, power outages, bills...you name it, it happens. In result, many of the people around here, even those who have lived their entire lives here, can become depressive, bitter souls.

Anyway, when the warmer season begins to creep up and Summer begins, hoo ha!, happiness is reborn. As if they never had it so good. They start going to the beach in April, just because it can be 60 maybe 70 degrees outside. Kids pop out the brightest bikinis, news stations are seeping with joy, people can get upset if it rains too much in the Spring, and so forth. They "praise" the Sun. And yet in the midst of this turmoil, I can't help but find it endearing. I've spent my childhood in the Caribbean, "latin America" (basically Mexico and down), and Africa. Some Europe. No, I'm not privileged,far from it, just that my family splurged on plane tickets instead of cars and a mortgage. What has been normal to me, warm, happy, fresh weather, is not the usual around here. These people love Summer far more than I do and ever will. My favorite season is Fall.

This then is tans, lemonade, pool parties, Summer vacations, vanilla ice cream, summer fling, and summer camp. Swimming in a lake in the middle of the woods.The Beach Boys, The Thrills, and Weezer. Summer rain after high 90s weather. Refreshing. Liberating, like how free and safe it was when we were children. It is comfortable.It smells good. I guess this is why it's so popular. I normally don't like smelling like everyone, thus why I've only worn this once or twice from a small sample (don't knock it until you try it). However, I'll make an exception on this one. Yes, it can be annoying when everyone smells the same. But like I've said, most people have a deep desire to feel normal, accepted. Some of us, are naturally comfortable being like everyone else. It is a goal some people aspire to. Normality is overrated, but it has its uses. People immediately trust you. You have something in common. People like things to be in order, linear, routine. Rebels get shot and become legends. Your average person stays comfortable and lives.

I rather be a rebel still.

Not sure why, but I really hate this one. It has the kind of synthetic-y floral scent that I sometimes like, but in this case I can't stand it. It could be because a few of the women I work with wear loads of it, and we are a huggy bunch so I end up wearing it, too. And it is strong. And it overpowers my own perfume. And it lasts and lasts and LASTS. And I have to shower to get every molecule of it off of me or else it seems to multiply and I'm stuck with it all night. Yuck.

A breathtaking perfume which has the ability to change ones mood and lighten up a day, anon..

0-5 mins - Wowie, now this is it. Chilled, casual, but big enough to be out there,... complex citrus, unisex, not just relaxed but optimisitic for the future and brighter times ahead. Projection 2-4 foot around. All day wear, universal, London, Toyko etc... it doesn't matter who, where, what, when you are, this is something all can enjoy and truly special and timeless.

5 mins - 5 hours - Projection 2 foot around, captivates all around, impossible to not be amazed by how good this is, like the dream beach holiday, like the dream that you can aspire to.

5-10 hours. Less projection. Lives 2 days on clothes however, if you like me, cannot let this go.

Absolutely perfect scent, perfect projection and longevity, what more could one ask for?

I bought this recently after hearing positive comments about it, and it ended up smelling way better than I had thought. But then again, it probably is a summer scent, as I prefer more sensual scents for fall and winter. If you want something that screams "Fresh and Clean", than this is the right perfume for you. I'd say that this is more wearable than DKNY's Be Delicious. I just wished that it had better lasting power,as it lasts for only about 6 hours on my skin.
Overall, i like this fragrance and would recommend it to my friends :)

i used to love this scent... actually as far as i can tell, this was my very first "signature-perfume", and i used to wear it day and night when i was 12-14 years old. but after finishing the 2nd bottle and buying myself the 3rd, i for some reason suddenly couldnt stand the smell of it anymore! i got sick everytime i sniffed it, so since then, i still have a big 50ml bottle standing all alone in the shelf.
it is very fresh and citrusy... i get what people mean by saying it smells like detergent, toiletcleaner blabla... but its actually just very very fresh and citrusy, but still strong and making a statement.. and i always have the impression that the scent itself is just like the packaging of the bottle, blue and velvety-soft... and VERY unique! and if you find it not very "extraordinary","interesting", or "complex" it still doesnt beat the fact, that it is a uniqe scent, and there is NO perfume, which smells like it.... so i know exactly when one is wearing light blue, as i pass by. i just cant smell it anymore...

I first smelled this scent on a friend of mine a few years ago and fell in love with it. I bought a bottle and was very disappointed. It smelled nothing like the fresh yet musky scent I had smelled, and more like lemons and rubbing alcohol. I thought perhaps it was my body chemistry or maybe a bad batch.
I decided to give it a try again when the same friend was still wearing the light blue and I tried it. It smelled amazing.
I ordered a small bottle from e-bay & LOVED it again.
I decided to order the full size from Macy's- received it last week & once again, LEMONS.
The difference in the 2 bottles I own- the fresh musky scent is Made in Italy. The lemon pledge, Made In Germany. I have no doubt both bottles are authentic, but either something is lost in translation in Germany, or inferior ingredients are used.
This scent is fabulous when it's done right.
For some reason the 2 bottles I have had from Germany were just not right.

I've had 3 bottles of this perfume already and didn't get tired of it and don't think it will happen soon.
What I think of it is that this is the most popular perfume for young women, for summer and within the citrusy scent area.
I love it for it inspires me cleanliness, freedom and a sexy lazyness. It's like I only need this to feel confortable when wearing really high heels and a short wavy dress on a tipical summer day.
The bad thing about it is that more and more women smell the same wearing it and the nose loses connection with the heart of this perfume.
Anyway, since it continues to be one of my top 5, I trully agree it's great, even after being familiar with it for 4 years now.

I have been wanting to try this for so long, after hearing so many good reviews, and the enduring popularity of it. Finally, I got a sample of it! However, I am somewhat disappointed since it smells very similar to both Secret Wish by Anna Sui, and Naturelle by Yves Rocher. I know Light Blue came out first, but I have been loyal to Secret Wish for so long, I think I will stick with it.

Es un aroma muy cítrico, brillante y con personalidad. Realmente me transporta a una playa mediterránea con el mar salpicado por los reflejos dorados del sol. Da sensación de energía y optimismo. Me parece una buena alternativa para mi perfume habitual de verano. Para ser un EdT dura mucho sobre mi piel. Hay que usarlo con moderación, ya que si se pone perfume en exceso se hace intrusivo.

It is a citrus aroma, bright and personality. I really transported to a Mediterranean beach with the sea dotted with golden reflections of the sun. Da feeling of energy and optimism. I think a good alternative to my usual summer perfume. To be a EdT last long on my skin. You have to use it sparingly, because if you put too much perfume is intrusive.

I had it many years ago, when I used to adore it. Back in that time, I was only having 3-4 perfumes, and this one was my summer time favorite. It was fashionable, sexy, young, and everybody loved it.
Regardless, I ended up having it again due to good memories related to it; maybe my nose has changed, but I find it lemony, with tons of musk and cedar, and not much else; I cannot smell any flowers. I love the sour opening, but after that it's just Aqua di Gioia minus the sugar and the mint. Still beautiful for summer time, but I cannot find the "wow" in it, as I used to, when I was younger. Silage and lasting power are quite good for an edt.
One more note: this is one of most faked scents out there... I suggest that if you like it, spend the money to get it from a reputable store, unless you want to get a nasty smelling, toilet freshener..... which may be the case for all those that swear this smells like toilet freshener...been there, done that, got a fake once too from ebay..... So, go, buy it from a real store, and you might find beauty in it, and understand its pupularity and viability on a maket overly saturated with fuityflorals already.

Slightly sweet, soft but vibrant, fresh lemon with one of my favourite notes, cedar, ever present...really delectable, a perfect summer scent and I understand why it's loved by so many.

A big minus though - it lasts only about an hour on my skin if that, and sillage is nearly non-existent after the first 10 minutes. I've raced through my little 25ml bottle in the last month as I've used it more like a body spray. I'll have to throw away the empty bottle because if I keep sniffing it I know I'll want more! And it's quite expensive for a body spray. But that's just my skin maybe.

A very, very fresh, sparkling and clean fragrance. Like a splash of cold water or a deep breath of fresh air. I notice the lemon and cedar the most. It's great on hot summer days, when you don't want something too overpowering. This is a magical fragrance - not too sweet, not too woody. And not spicy (at all!!!). When i first smelled it, it was really in-your-face.. But soon i got used to it and loved it! I love D&G perfumes in general: it's like they were working at each note for a long time, thinking of the ideal combination with it, making the aroma not too overpowering or boring. Each fragrance is original and unforgettable...

There is one BIG minus about the fragrance: it doesn't last on me at all.. :( I spray it on and in three minutes i already can't feel it. But the scent itself is lovely. 9.5 out of 10.

Light Blue is a masterpiece of proportion: pure, clean, with a refreshing taste of apple, and just enough lemon to keep it bright and awake. It is far superior to most other aquatics that I have tried, which suffer from an excess of citrus, usually making them a bit cloying and antiseptic.

No such problem with Light Blue. If you want a sparkling daytime perfume, this is the one for you, man or woman.

Like most aquatics, it can be too strong if worn to excess. A little goes a long way. It's not the kind of scent you want to broadcast to the world. It's a modest scent, one you should wear to subtly enhance your cleanliness and clear presence of mind.

I don't think it is "sexy" as advertised. There is nothing dark or sensual about it. It could however, evoke the brightness of a sunlit beach.

The bottle is a bit boring. Sure, this perfume is not sensual, but it's not utilitarian either. It's full of sparkling beauty, and could use a more creatively designed bottle to enhance that image.

This is a decent fresh fragrance, but not the best to my nose. For some reason I am inexplicably reminded of Lanvin's Eclat d'Arpege, without the berry notes. The opening is a lot of lemon and apple and then the bamboo becomes distinct. It remains fairly linear until the end when the musk comes through. This does kind of remind me of an air freshener. I expected more.

Sun in a bottle! Salty limes, warm ocean spray, sugar rimmed vodka tonic. It's clean and slightly crisp yet soft and still subtle. Beachy but not tropical. Not the type of scent I tend to gravitate towards ( earthy, smokey,honey, incense etc) but I really love this one. Not overly feminine but not quite unisex. My hubby loves this one on me!

Crisp apple and zesty lemon: A happy, optimistic sort of scent. Puts me in mind of a breezy, clear day spent picnicking near an orchard. Refreshingly sweet, it manages to duck the cloying trap that so many floral fruity perfumes fall into. Simply delicious for summer - you might be able to pull it off in colder weather as well, but it has a light tough that might quickly disappear.

I have tried rose the one and 3 Le Impertrice they are both nice but my favourite by a country mile is light blue I love the crispness of the granny smith apples melding with the fresh blubells I find it an uplifting fruity floral which is absolutely intoxicatingly addictive and my definite favourite for spring and summer especially I have had five bottles of it and many compliments when I wear it. It blends with my body chemistry just purrrrrfectly ! ! ! ! ! ! I just love it. It's not cheap but to me it is worth every cent it is my favourite for sure.

Clean, cool and fresh citrus scent with a prominent cedar note that in my opinion makes this fragrance rather masculine or at least unisex. It reminds me a lot of the colognes of the past (like 4711).

There's nothing mysterious to this scent. It's an easy going, uncomplicated fragrance - just zesty citrus and aromatic cedar, with a small hint of floral sweetness. It doesn't change character from the minute it's sprayed till it fades away - what you spray is what you get.

This scent is especially suitable for a hot summer day, where the refreshing element is more important than the complexity and uniqueness of the scent.

In 3 words: FRESH - MASCULINE - LINEAR

I just love this fragrance so much. In my opinion it's perfection from start to finish. The citrus top note is fresh but not overly sour, and a few spritzes of this on clothes ensures that the lemony scent lasts even as the perfume evolves on skin.

I started wearing this fragrance back in 2001 when it first came out, before it really became popular. The fact that so many people do wear it is testament to its quality. This is my favorite D&G perfume.

The women's is much better than the men's version which is find too bitter. The women's is 10/10 for me and gets lots of compliments from people.

It's great to smell it in a distance when there's a wind . So I think it would be sexy if someone pass by catch a scent of this on me.
However, if you smell directly from the place you apply it, it's too sour and irritating.
Still, i like wearing this in casual because it's fresh and clean.

Light Blue . . . hmmm. Wonder what kind of fragrance this could be . . .

In all honesty, it's not that bad. Bright citrus notes with a touch of sweetness, darkened by cedar. Simple, pleasant, inoffensive, generic. The fragrance is unisex (the masculine version is redundant) and nice for a casual summer day. There's nothing grandiloquent or exaggerated in the composition, which is to its detriment; Light Blue could use a little pizzaz. As it stands, it's one of many uninteresting and easy-to-wear summer scents. I'd opt for Eau de Grey Flannel if I wanted this kind of citrus/cedar arrangement, but any one of your Cool Waters or Acqua di Gios would do as well.

I purchased Light Blue once in 2002 and again in 2003, I thought it was a unisex scent. Much to my dismay it was for women, so my pride forced me to stop wearing it. I think I'll pick it up again and layer it this time. Women loved it on me then and I'm pretty sure my luck will be the same now.

I don't think this is a stripper scent, although I really don't frequent strip clubs like that. The strippers I encountered always wore some form of Bath & Body Works.

All in all, I think it's a nice scent. If a scent could catch the feeling of a warm saturday afternoon, this would be it.

I was looking forward to this scent as it smelled lovely and fresh in the bottle. Good thing I tried it out first! On me, unfortunately, it smells like a toilet that has not been cleaned in years & growing mold... it also has incredible staying power. I did not know what to do to make it go away. But I thought, maybe beginner's luck. I tried again 4 more times with the same result...haha you can say I was determined! But definitely, definitely not for me! It smells so awful on my skin!

* Office Safety - 4/10 (in moderation)
* "Headache" Factor - 7/10

This one opens like a fresh breeze that cools you off on a hot day. It's lovely and fresh.

BUT... once the cedar takes over, it become unwearable for me. I like scents that evolve, but in this case, I wish it was linear and stayed the way it is on opening instead of the cedar taking over in the middle.

I think this could be just fine for office wear IF the wearer is sparing with it. A co-worker wears too much of it at work and it is overwhelming.

Fellas, my good friend Anup's review says it best: Light Blue works perfectly as a masculine. There's really nothing feminine about it and it's one of the best fresh fragrances money can buy.

And, Light Blue is successful for a reason. It's appealing, pleasant, intelligently marketed, long-lasting, and modern. Light Blue is the women's answer to Acqua di Gio for men: light and fresh, the perfect anti perfume, along with L'Eau d'Issey.

Still, there are better citrus fragrances out there (Eau de Guerlain and Orange Sanguine come to mind in terms of unisex), and just about EVERYONE seems to wear Light Blue. Since it has first been released, the world has reeked of it more and more.

Regardless, I like the stuff and it can be found for a good price at good retailers. Guys, I recommend you skip the banal men's version and just go for this one. Women will still compliment you.

Nice summer fragrance, although it's nothing special. I did find the lasting power to be impressive though, at least on me anyway. When I run out, I won't repurchase because it is just too common and doesn't have a "wow" factor to keep me coming back. I know quite a few reviewers have said they think it smells masculine, and it does, but not in a bad way. It's very fresh and clean smelling and very ordinary too; it is what I would consider a "safe" scent. If you've never tried it and you like the fresh-citrusy smelling frags, then give it a whirl, but if you're looking for something to knock your socks off, you might want to try something else.

Light blue is a very fresh fragrance. Not dewy or sweet, but not arid either. A windy clifftop drenched in sunshine, small wild flowers thrashing back and forth surrender their subtle scents to the breeze. Miles of blue sky overhead, fresh with ozone, waves crashing on the cliff face many metres below.

I visualise a woman wearing this, she is beautiful, sophisticated, streetwise, calm and confident. She lives amongst the bright neon lights, the glitz and glamour of the city nightlife. She is at home here. She does not need to attract attention - the lights shimmer all around her and she does not notice them, they are her domain and she shines with them. She has attention without effort, she is loved and admired. She wears a scent for herself and Light Blue brings a blast of fresh air and clear blue sky into her dark but dazzling city life. She secretly longs to escape and walk those breezy clifftops.

Great fresh fragrance, uplifting, quite unchanging and lasts well, a little sillage, but not too much.

Fresh apples and femininity! It is a crowd pleaser and I have never received any negative comments when I wear this, but girls do tend to comment more than men :D This was my signature scent for a couple of years when I was partying lots and every time I catch a waft of it it brings a smile to my lips.

A little rant for you before i review this. Did there SERIOUSLY need to be a D&G light blue pour homme?!!
NO, this is perfectly unisex. If i smelled this without knowing what it was i would most likely be inclined to think that is WAS a mens fragrance in the first place.

I'm done ranting, now i can begin reviewing this best seller by one of my favorite noses, Olivier Cresp!

The top:

An apple resembling the apple note found in DK's be delicious men will be the first thing that you pick up on, which is great because i simply LOVE a well done apple!
To be an apple that is executed well it has to capture the bitter skin, and the savory/mealy/sugared meat, which this does without a doubt.
The lemon is also present providing an even more sun soaked bitter/airy tendency!

The heart:

The middle of this fragrance features both jasmine and rose, but i do not detect them by themselves.
I get a feeling that these notes are implied within some patented aroma-chemicals in the base, you'll know what i mean when i explain it in the basenotes :) The note in the middle of that fragrance that DOES stand out to me though would have to be the bamboo.
I've had bamboo growing outside my apartment for the past three summers and i am very familiar with it's dirty green whiff.

The base:

I detect a light resinous amber that's brown suger-esque motives are partially thwarted by the hearty, masculine ceder :).
Now onto what i was getting at earlier. The base of this smells IDENTICAL to cool wet soil.
It's this olfactory experience that i believe draws so many women (and men alike) to this best seller.

I approve!

Smell: 8
Longevity: 10
Sillage: 10++

I love Light Blue. Clean and fresh without smelling anything like a household product, and it lasts for such a long time. I sprayed my wrist before bed last night and I could still smell it quite clearly this morning, almost 9 hours later. I guess I'm lucky, I'm read several reviews complaining that it doesn't last!!

The dry down comes quite quickly on my skin, leaving my with a more powdery soft kind of clean, like a freshly bathed child. Cute. Not sexy in anyway to my nose, so it does seem an odd choice for strippers? I have had many compliments when wearing this, mostly from other women. Two of my good friends (non-perfumistas) have bought LB after smelling it on me, so now I just don't wear it when I see them. Even my daughter, who only seems to go for candy type fragrances loves it on me.

I've finished up my bottle and now that summer is gone here I won't repurchase yet, but its a definite re-buy for next spring and summer. Sensational!

Iso E Super anyone? A citrus sherbet opening evolving into a clearly synthetic cedar mid-phase (kind of incensey) with barely perceptible fruity-floral patterns. Boring, uninteresting and definitely unbalanced on the synthetic side. Undeservedly popular and firmly unpleasant.

It IS the best summer fragrance! I caught a whiff of it while standing in line in the NC airport. I followed the fragrance to a woman about 5 people ahead of me, and begged to know what she was wearing. It does open with a citrus lime-grapefruit, yet has a rose heart and patchouli dry-down to me. It stays very well- love it!

It's amazing - I think this is a universally appealing scent. I know someone whose signature scent was Clinique's Aromatic Elixir (not for the faint of heart... potent, heavy stuff that I can't stand), and she switched to D&G Light Blue. Even though the perfumes are so different, after one spritz of Light Blue you don't wanna go back. Feminine, refreshing, citrusy and cool. It lasts all day on most people. The only reason I stopped wearing it was because it got so popular, I smelt it EVERYWHERE!

Light Blue is a true classic and I just love this scent. It is sparkling and light, bursts open like opening a bottle of champage, the opening fizzy citrus notes blending perfectly with crisp sour green apples and the cedar. I cant smell any rose notes though. On a hot day this is the perfect fragrance to use; it is never over the top but it is not a sweet perfume as it has a slightly sharp edge which mellows down. Not too much citrus to imagine the wearer has been doused with lemon juice LOL as the cedar/mossy base notes balance the lighter notes. The name is misleading as nothing "blue" springs to mind. "Citrus Moss" as an alternative name probably better describes the scent but it does not sound modern or appealing and would not improve the perfume sales!! It is a perfume for a young modern woman, it doesnt disappoint, the drydown is great (the apple note lingered nicely) and lasts for a long time. Enjoy!

Much has been said, and more eloquently that I could, about the notes of Light Blue, so there's really not much I can add there.

I first smelled Light Blue years ago when it first came out and I hated it. This was when I was a teenager and I really didn't know much about fragrance. Two months ago, I was in an airport and spritzed on Light Blue just to give it another chance.
I fell in summer love.

I say summer love because I'm not deeply, madly in love with Light Blue. It's not my favorite, forever fragrance, nor the one that makes me feel sexy and glamorous. But nothing beats Light Blue in the summer heat. It's like the Gin & Tonic of perfumes. Nothing extraordinary, but so refreshing and delightful. To me, I smell primarily the citrus and apple top notes; jasmine, musk, and cedar are undetectable to me.

Only downside is that the sillage is terrible. Light Blue lasts about 2 hours on me, TOPS, and that is sprayed directly on both wrists. This seems to be a common issue.

When I first smelled this a few weeks ago (yes it has taken me that long) first of all I jus thought it was a lemon overdose.......

However ;)... after the first few minutes, it started developing a uniqueness I didn't expect, for some reason I got some bitter almond note, whatever it was it was lovely, clean and fresh. Perfect for summer. I don't care of alot of people have it, I don't recognise it on anyone I know so whatever :-) it's lovely! And obviously a reason for its popularity.

So I'm using this as a bribe to myself - stop smoking for a week (think the worst of the cravings should be over by then) and I can treat myself to this beauty. :-) and it seems to be working! Can't stop thinking about how much ~I want this, definitely more than a cig....


***update*** Wow, definitely falling in love with this more and more, it's SO uplifting, and so far have had compliments as soon as someone smells it on me, rather than me asking them! People seem to love this one, which is greAT imo ;)

So I was dying to smell this since apparently everyone has it. I smelt it today and I was extremely disappointed! Everyone raves about it, saying it's so beautiful & fresh, yet when I smelt it, it smelled like ARABICA BEANS. And not in a good way.. It smelt like coffee & dirt. It was so weird because everyone always says it's light, fresh, floral, etc. I don't understand why anyone would like this fragrance...

This is that kind of scent that never offends anybody´s nose. It´s really soft, delicate and not cloying at all. Lime and cedar make a fresh and pleasant composition. Rose and jasmine are not too noticeable imo. As it dries down, musk and amber appear without breaking the fresh chain, which lasts quite long. The sillage is not shouting, but good enough to deserv compliments. Overall this is a perfect choice for summer, yet suitable for any season. A very charming one.

ok it is nice and I repurchased it(one of my infamous 20 ml bottles hehe) and I think it is enough. It was my signature when I was 13,and a sniff from the bottle zaps me back to my tween years:D I don't use it very often now, and the 20 ml bottle will be all for it,enough flashbacks for me! I don't think it would bother anyone, a nice fresh vercy citric scent that doesn't say too much.

The Light Blue used to be my favorite perfume. I still like it but not as much as I used to. I bought my first bottle when it just came out, used up about 6-7 full bottles of it and still kind of like it. It's very citrusy at first when you just sprits it on, after it dries down to a nice soft musky scent on me. I love it.

I really love D&G Light Blue, I remember a friend of mine was wearing it, and I asked her what it was cause it smelled so good :) I never had a full bottle of it, but I've tested it many times, enough to write a review at least :) When I first spray it, it smells just like lemonade, a very fresh lemon scent. After the dry down the base notes settle in and the powerful lemon scent softens. (I tend to like cedar notes and that is just what I smell at the dry down.) The lasting power is about 4-5 hours on my skin, so not that long however keep in my mind it is an EDT. I would say a great choice for spring & summer!

I have to agree with "airwatersun" on her lovely review. This is no girly scent.
I get a distinct dry cedar note from it. In fact, it's even drier and better in cooler weather.

The great staying power says a lot for the quality. I can still detect it a day after using it, in moderate warmth and with sparing use.

It's also not as commonly used as it was a while ago, at least not where we stay. Definitely not enough to spoil my fun with it.

D&G Light Blue is indeed, a pleasant fragrance.To me, it seems more mature that other Floral Fruity scents which in my view is a very big plus (as I'm not a big lover of this group).Just for the purpose of this review I sprayed some on wrist and all I can feel right now is a strong and fresh lemon scent.As the top notes fade away,I can definetly feel how the rose and the jasmine blend together, the lemon note disappearing almost completely.

The fragrance lasts A LOT, almost the entire day.If you pair it with with the body lotion you can be sure you'll feel it on your skin until you'll take your shower at night.

Overall, if you want a nice floral fruity fragrance, I see no reason why not to recommend it,especially for its staying power.But if you're a lover of mostly oriental/floral fragrance, you'll probably get bored of this fragrance pretty soom.After 2 weeks of having it, I ended up giving mine away.

to everyone who thinks that it is ''annoying'' to find this perfume ''everywhere''..
has it ever occured to you that there is a reason for this being so popular?
this perfume is just amazing.
thats the reason.

i dont know about newest versions, i have the old one. for me, it has always been about deep dry wood balanced with just the right amount of lemony fresh bitterness.
thats it.
no bamboo, no rose or jasmine, surely no apple, and who in fact knows how bellflower smells?
i like things simple.
when it dries, you can find lots and lots of natural cedar. nothing artificial. like you opened a door of an old wooden armoire and found clean sheets washed in lemon boil (for whitening)
this can easily go as unisex in my opinion. there is nothing girly about it.

What a unique and perfect summer fragrance it was - in the past!! When I first smelled it in 2002 I was in love! I knew immediately: I have to have it! This was my summer scent! The perfect one! Smells like the lemon sorbet I´ve always eaten in Italy. Really, it brings back so many memories I have of Italy. This scent has only one disadvantage: It´s too popular, every second woman wears it in summer and that´s what I can´t stand. As lovely and fresh this fragrance is and as much as I wanna wear it again, I avoid to buy it cause it doesn´t have anything individual anymore.

At the fragrance counter, I passed the bottle by many times because it just looked boring. But one hot day on my lunch hour I gave it a sniff and I felt like it was an instant vacation. Now, I wear it every summer or on really cold days to make me feel like sunshine even when there is snow on the ground. I really love it now. Like an old friend. Maybe not the most exciting fragrance but it brings a smile just to think about it.

Suddenly thought I smelled marzipan and/or something horrible, not right! Washed it off. Another one I thought I would like from the reviews and notes in it (particularly bamboo) but on me, not nice :( Stale almonds, sort of reminiscent of the playdough smell I get with Hypnotic poison, so I'm guessing it just disagrees with my skin.

Surprisingly, even though everyone says Light Blue is worn by so many people, I have yet to come across someone who wears it. I find the scent to be quite beautiful after about ten minutes as the initial spray is extremely citrusy in my opinion. At first I wondered if it would stay like that but I was wrong. After a while I began to pick up lovely sweet notes; not cloying/overly-sugary though. More like a light sweetness that is still dominated by the zesty citrus. It's probably a good idea to spray this on during the daytime in Summer, and waiting 10-20 minutes before heading out/meeting up with someone. The first time you put it on it IS quite overpowering if you don't really like lemon. Because the lemon is very obvious at the beginning. All in all, a fragrance I find to be very nice and I'm glad I bought it.

I would associate this scent with work-related situations. It's also suitable when I just feel simple.

To me, it's a simple scent, not a fresh scent. It's simple in that it doesn't involve many floral or fruity elements. It does not contain anything provocative either. However, it's nothing close to being aquatic or minty.

I like the citrisy top notes, but it's really the base notes that resonates with me. The woody undertone is simple without being overly airy, and is liked by a number of my male friends (so far, I haven't asked any female friend yet). However, this undertone is quite weak, which is probably why many people feel that the scent does not last very long. If I spray it directly onto my wrist in the morning, by late afternoon, I would only be able to smell it if I give a serious sniff on my wrist.

The middle note is what smells like a household chemical product and I dislike. However there's nothing unpleasant in it, it's just not special.

I would keep the 25ml bottle because I feel this bottle best manifests the simplicity and the almost unisex appeal of this scent. Besides, that's as much as I would use before it expires. Also, I feel that the bigger bottles look kind of cheap.

After the top notes (that the first time I thought were way too citrusy for me but now I'm thinking otherwise), I don't smell any other notes in this perfume, as if it disappeared from my skin. That's too bad because when the top notes start to fade away, the faint smell I can still perceive is lovely.

I still dont get why is this so popular. I guess that Light Blue is like that popular group that we all had in high school: you will never know what made them special!
To me Light Blue smells like a soft toilet cleaner mixed with lemon soap and washed clothes. When I smell it on paper it has something that is really awfull to my nose but on skin it works better, although it still smells like a cheap cologne.
A friend of mine wears it all the time and I like it +/- on her although this always remember me of the smell of a toilet after the cleaning lady passed by...bahhh its a no no for me after several tryes to like it!

I originally got this from a friend and hated how limey it was. Upon a second try the lime note faded into something a bit sweeter but still fresh. I don't use this scent too often, but like it enough when I do. It's a popular scent but I probably won't buy it again.

I'm giving this a new review! I got this as a gift recently from my boyfriend (he didn't know I used to have this one). I also received Cheap & CHic I Love Love in a swap and I compared the two. They are almost exactly the same. I am suprised though that I actually like this scent more so now then I did years ago! I did at one time think it was boring but now when I smell it I find that the spicyness keeps it interesting enough to want to wear it! Like I said in my review for I Love Love...I wouldn't have chosen to have both of these scents in my collection because they are so alike but having one or the other would be a good edition. It's super citrusy and spicy and last 5 hours or so. Reminds me of lemonade on hot summer days :)

I started it using it in 2001 when it just came out, but because it was the only fragrance i had, I got sick and tired of it by 2005 after several years of abuse.
I never repurchased it since it became the latest craze in the US.....too many people smelling like this. I finally bought it again after years of break.....couldn't resist a great deal for a large bottle. I remember Light Blue as very citrusy, bright, and refreshing with a great staying power and sillage. I wonder if I am going to have the same feelings about it

starlight~girl:)

I so wanted to love this perfume when I tested it about a year ago... I recently tested it again.

I think because it was compared to a very light and sweet fragrance I owned. It was a Victoria's secret, secret garden fragrance (Secret Charm) and the girls at the store told me it smelled just like Dolce and Gabbana's Light Blue! I adored that one so much, I thought Light Blue must be wonderful. :)

So of course I had to sample it. I think if I wasn't comparing it to something so different. (Wished the Vicky's girls didn't get my hopes up) I hated it. It isn't like Secret Charm. It is not how I envisioned light and airy. It is aromatic, that is sure. It isn't strongly floral or sweet or gourmand. It is cleaner, But... it smells masculine in comparison to my expectations. There is something very strong about this one. Not like fresh air. Like a man's calogne scent or maybe something to clean your house... that is starting to expire. :'( chemical. ~ Maybe if they got rid of the Cedar/ Woods/ or Musk? Then it would be light and airy and sweet. This doesn't feel airy or should be marketed to women.

Now I am wondering how I would feel if I didn't compare it? Honestly I tried to give it a chance again this month. I sprayed it on my skin... and I have to say. Besides not liking the scent of it when sprayed... it really didn't like my chemistry. I was disappointed and also embarrassed that I felt like it smelled more like I was wearing a man's fragrance instead of a woman's. :( The girls at work did not think it smelled good on me at all. :'(

I had to go wash it off. I didn't understand why everyone loves it so much? Must just be how it is on my skin? It turned sour... is there supposed to be lightness or even a trace of sweetness? Where is the airy? Or the ocean? I think I might compare it more to one of those strong ocean or mountain scented candles that gives you a headache, and then throw in some woods and musk. ~ sigh :( so sad. I wish it wasn't so.

I am so sorry Light Blue, I wanted to love you. :( It smells a little masculine to me? Musky? I think this could be a very good fragrance on a man. :) Just not very feminine on me. And not great on my chemistry. (awful) :'(

I guess it wasn't meant to be.

I have no idea why this fragrance isn't marketed as a unisex scent. It seems it should be wearable by men too, likely due to the heavy-handed doses of cedar and lime. Having never smelled the male version, I can't imagine it smells much more masculine than this. There is more than a hint of lime here. The lime is actually overpowering on me. Once you get this on your skin, it literally lasts all day. To me, this smells identical to Roxy Love but is way pricier.

Hello, ladies, I am a 17 year-old teenager who loves this fragrance. The many girls who I've smelled with this fragrance say it is long-lasting.
It is one of my favorite summer fragrances for women, very soft, citrusy, summery and good! THIS IS ACTUALLY MY FAVORITE, the second favorite is Thierry Mugler's Womanity, but it is for the colder months. This juice makes me just catch the girl and hug and sniff her hard and forever! This is my favorite stuff!

I'll update this review after I wear this perfume once more. Today I found myself initially intrigued. Clean, fresh like water but slightly floral and powdery. It was strong, however. Eventually it began to smell like a floral/powdery perfume which is just... okay. I love that it lasts a very long time. I put the perfume on around 1:00, and I still smell it now at almost 10pm. For hours I got occasional whiffs of it.

I'll update my review next time I apply the perfume. I'd like to better analyze it after immediately applying it.

When I spray this on, I am underwhelmed. It's nice enough, definitely appropriate for offices, but it just never smells like enough of anything to excite me. I would be curious to smell this on someone else to see if it is more interesting. All in all, my reaction is "oh. Ok."

Ever since i have one light blue in my bag every single day!

I have worn this perfume for about eight years now and it is my signature! Since day one, every person i have encountered has commented on how good I smell. I have always loved it. I'm very picky about fragrances and my opinion on this one has never once wavered. It's my favorite. I go through the bottles like candy. There's no telling how many I have bought over the years but it is worth every penny! And it's my boyfriend's favorite as well. :)

Errr. I smell no floral fruity in this one. Sort of masculine-y and aquatic. Think of blue jeans, water, and a whole lot of testosterone.

Men's version is far more captivating. The aroma is similar to a lemon fresh water, too sweet and too cold. It is quite refreshing, but runs the risk of cloying. We recommend only for those who like hot and sweet perfumes, no sensual notes.

There is nothing else that smells quite like Light Blue. It is a bit of a legend in its own time...like Dior Poison, Lolita Lampika and Angel...When you smell someone wearing them, they are unmistakable because they are so unforgettable. With that said, this one to me, smells the way freshly cut lemons smell as you plop them into a summer cocktail. Mixed with that is the distinct smell of Pez...a candy I adored as a child...and the smell of Pez was a big draw to the candy for me, too! In the background..way, way in the back is a fresh, clean, aquatic-musk. Very interesting. Yes, a bit cloying--but it does have great lasting power. And I have yet to meet a man who does not love this on a woman.

This perfume is beautiful when worn properly. Really fresh, light, almost like a good riesling. However, I warn anyone who buys it, make sure you either use it quickly or store it properly, because after a few years it goes really lemony, like some kind of cleaning product. I love this perfume because it reminds me of when I fell in love with my current partner, so when I smell it, I get butterflies and feel like a young teenager again. If I buy it again, I will definately buy a smaller bottle.
Also, the majorly disappointing thing about this fragrance is that it doesn't stay on the skin for long at all. If only they made an EDP version of it.

All in all, a really nice fragrance for fans of sweet, citrus florals.

I don't understand how this became a best seller. Whenever I smell it, I actually recoil. Sour, acrid, unbalanced- to my nose, anyway.

Is there anything left unsaid about this perfume? I think not..
When I got this fragrance as a gift I immediately thought it's not a perfume I can't get in love with, as first because of its wide popularity (too many women wear it expecially here in Italy) but most af all because I had tried a sample about 10 years ago and didn't like the citrus-lemon-fresh smell. I usually wear floral oriental fragrances, in summer too, and this scent doesn't match my preferences at all!
But...I must tell you this: some days ago I was wearing Light Blue during a grey winter afternoon and somehow I appreciated it, because I could perceive the subtle flowery notes I didn't notice before (maybe the jasmine? I don't know).
Just to tell you that, after a few minutes since spraying, this scents could get softer and almost "relaxing" on some skins. Maybe that's why many reviewers say it's a sexy scent.
It could be, but not in my way.
Last thing: citrus-lemon notes are meant to recall sicilian shores and landscapes: uhm ok, South Italy is full of lemon trees... but if you are looking for a more feminine (and authentic) Sicily natural scent you should try some orange blossom-based perfumes (just my personal opinion): this one feels more like a lemon crushed-ice drink :)

I know that this is considered to be a popular, ready-to-wear, easy, everybody-loves-it fragrance, and if you don't wanna be like everybody else, try something different and blablabla.
Whatever.
It's popular because is a well made fragrance and seems to please almost everyone.
Smells good on me and on friends of mine that have the perfume, which is a rare thing.
The longevity is really good on me, another rare thing, considering that my skin seems to reject almost every perfume that I wear.
Another great thing about this one? It's fresh and sweet at the same time, which is perfect for someone living in a tropical country, like me!
No mather what people say, I simply love Light Blue.

Light Blue is well-named - it's fresh, aquatic, and airy. I love the citrus and light florals. It makes me think of going to the lakehouse in the summertime. Unfortunately, there is something dusty in this fragrance that goes utterly wrong on my skin... the best way I can describe it is that it "sours". As much as I would love to wear it, that one note spoils it for my skin.

I tried it due to the amazing reviews and its #4 best selling rating at Shephora.

This D&G fragrance smells identical to Shanghai Butterfly by Nanette Lepore. I guess it's really the other way around since Light Blue debuted first. The only difference I detect is a watery, aquatic freshness in Light Blue that I don't get with Shanghai Butterfly. I suppose it could be the bamboo note. Both have a sweet citrus top note supported by a woodsy-musky base. They are both delicious and feminine.

Everytime I spray this I get that old lady vibe and I dont know why since it is mostly worn by a younger set. Smells so good on my niece.

if you associate 'freshness','lightness', 'cleanness' with citrus scents, go for it.
it's probably one of the best easy-to-find/affordable choices.i give credit to the lasting power as well. but,if you don't find yourself in the above statement, choosing this will be a mistake of massive proportions. subjective feeling: too 'sour'.

This scent is very annoying. First there is a lemon-soapy smell that smells clean and hopeful. But like those annoying store clerks at Bed, Bath and Beyond who won't stop cheerily saying hello and asking if you need help for the 100th time. This scent quickly starts to feel intrusive. What starts fresh with possibilities quickly sours to cheap-lemony dry down that lingers between your eyes and tingles your nose in an aggravating way, and does not develop into anything more.

Smells of cedar with a touch of a fresh lemon. It turns a little dirty smelling and masculine on me.

Lots of women say this is an aphrodisaic scent, and the cedar that features prominantly could be the reason. I think both men and women could wear this, it's very unisex.

I really dislike this perfume. Maybe it is my skin or something else. I just did not like it on me or even sprayed in the air. The smell to me is very strong and reminded me of men's cologne. I don't bathe in perfume just a very small amount goes a long way. I would not describe it as fruity floral. I do smell a hint of lime but mainly cedar.

Well the name suits it perfectly, its light ans its blue. In my skin its basicly vanilla and salt water but none of this notes are mentioned, so I guess my skin its just weird. I think its a really safe frangrance, good for summer and for young girls. There is something there I really dont like but I have no idea what it is, probably the cedar and the bamboo :S I dont undertstand why people call this a sexy perfume, in my opinion it doesnt have any personality :S Its good, but nothing special or original :S

A great scent for warm summer nights but almost unisex, I think.
It is worn by many women, I often notice the perfume on the train and at work, and men seem to like it, too.
Plus: The staying power is really good.

I love this scent a lot. Its not a WOW scent or anything like that. Not an evening perfume, either. Its just a pleasent, good scent, that I want to wear, when I don't want to have heavy scents around me and Im sitting in my sofa, with a good cup of tea, a book and in some cozy clothes. Or in the summer, when its way to hot for those heavy scents, that makes you gag! Or like a YOGA scent. Peacefull. I really like strong, heavy and sweet scents..but sometimes its just lovely to have a scent around, that goes in with ur skin. It smells like summer and fresh laundry. I am happy that this is still around and I hope that Dolce Gabbana, will keep this little beauty in their collection, forever! This is waaaaay better than Donna Karan's "Be Delicious", which is way to sweet for me and gives me a headace. TRY THIS, if u want a safe feel good fragrance!

This is so immensely popular. I dont have a bottle myself and would like to have it although I would not say its one of my absolute favourites but as I live in tropical weather and work in an office all day thought this might be a good nonoffensive scent to have that people seem to like. I personally think though it is a bit overhyped. I dont consider it sexy but rather fresh and lemony I am surprised that it is always called a man magnet since it is not very girly and sexy. It is kind of unisex. Still very pleasant, worth having.

This fragrance IS summer in a bottle. It starts off very lemony and citrusy and dries down to a still citrusy scent but not just any citrus. Not like you've been playing in rain soaked lemons. Like a beautiful lemony harmony smell. It's beautiful. For an EDT it lasts pretty good on me but I'll have to test it for a few more days first :)

Because of its massive popularity I was predisposed to dislike this, but I have to say that I enjoyed it. I sprayed some onto my wrist and let it dry before taking it in. To me, this is a more expensive version of Moschino's I Love Love. It starts out completely identical for the first hour, but slowly the jasmine blooms out from the cracks to round out the scent and turn it into more of a juicier floral. If it weren't for the jasmine I would have been appalled at how identical this was to I Love Love. Nonetheless, this is a lovely fragrance, but not one I'll be purchasing due to its overpopularity and relative similarity to I Love Love.

the scent start with citrus grandis smell, with lime peel... very nice actually and I love the scent. Then, after few while, the scent turn to slightly woody and spicy..maybe the cedar start to smell, but the citrus smell did not disappear.. but blend nicely together with the other notes.
Now, I think I like it (previously I dont really like it)... a should try perfume in my opinion...

Light Blue is a good summer scent. It won't get complaints from co-workers or stink up the bus. It is not like a real perfume but it costs as much. It seems like something that you should be able to buy at the discount pharmacy for $19.99 as a body splash. Just a refreshing scent that most everyone can wear.

Never really liked this one, not because it smells bad, but because it was SO popular.
But I do have to admit that it really smells like promised: south woods on the seashore, Sicilian summer, yes, it's all that. Very, very fresh, lemon, apple and flowerish notes (but just a hint of flowers) - pure aquatic-green scent. Too sharp for my taste.

And no, it's not fair to slam something just because it's popular, but it can easily make it annoying. Although, it's not even remotely as popular as it was 5-8 years ago, so you might give it a chance now.

It surely is a summer classic.

I don't get impressed by D&G Light Blue. It's not super wow to me, just ordinary.

- Surely it smells so good, light, fresh and uplifting. But the after smell kinda annoys me.
- I feel like drown in a scented aquatic marine tank. And I find it kinda boring scent as well.
- For you who really want to get the feeling close to the blue ocean in the summer, this might be the right perfume.

The lasting power was amazing for a EDT: over 8 hours in my skin.

It's so fresh: green bamboo, white rose, apple, lemon, with base of airy cedar and wonderful depth from the bellflower.

I just can't get enough of it.I think it's unjust for it to be slammed just because it's a popular perfume...

P.S.-about the reformulation- it has a little bit less staying power, but nothing disturbing, the smell is intact. Still lasts for hours and clings in my clothes until I wash them.

There is something about this scent that lures me into it. I'm a gourmand/vanilla girl at heart, but this is one of my favorite scents. I will absolutely keep a bottle laying around.
Where I'm from, it's not very common, but I would imagine in larger cities it would be.
On my skin, this scent is a nice sweet citrus. Slightly masculine, but very sweet as to making it loved by males. Sweet cedarwood (bring out the masculine in this), a little bit of musk, and loads citron with a hint of apple. I get compliments a lot when wearing this! The lasting power is pretty good for an EDT too. On my skin, it lasts up to 6 hours.

Normally I don't go for something so mainstream, but it's a fantasic summer scent for work. It's not dominantly floral or powdery. It's more feminine in the beginning but ends out being unisex in the end. That's fine with me, it's clean, fresh, & classy. I can see why it's so popular with nurses.

Easily to detect the jasmine from the begining, with some apple and citruses ( girls love this). A little light but that's what this about. A truly summer fragrance!

I can see where the good reviews come from, this is just lovely!

The fruity opening is crisp & tasty, the heart is fresh & delicious and the drydown remains fresh.

My only qualm with D&G Light Blue is that it is, in fact, very light. I would like to see more robustness about it.

It is winter now so maybe it needs a bit of skin heat to bring out its full potential. I will retry in summer.

But I have to say ... not good choice of name "light blue" and the bottle looks dated

Ease up guys!so what if its popular and everybody wears it,nothing to get offended about.I wont mind smelling this very popular fresh,unoffensive fragrance around everywhere i go,if the general public smells nice i dont mind at all. I think we sometimes take scents too seriously.Not evey perfume has to have a unique ''my'' signature scent.Cut it some slack. Its a very pretty fragrance. Perfect for summer, like sugary flowery lemonade.Makes me smile.Im just glad something like Dior tender poison isnt popular.Wont want to be stuck in an elevator full of people wearing that!

I love citrus fragrance but light blue doesn't impress me. At the beginning I think it's sharp,strong,and not smell like any citrus fruit. Anyway,I like drydown because it's not too sweet flower. Many reviewers say its smell like I Love Love but I think I Love Love is more citrusy and fresh citrus fruit.

Like everyone out there, I fell for this one at first time. I was young(and I didn't know better) and it was something simple, fresh and "sexy". After using it for 3 days or so, I hated it. I felt like using a men`s cologne. Now as it is so popular, every teenager has a bottle and so many people know about this perfume I just find it annoying. There is nothing feminine about this scent. I believe it would make a better job as a "body splash".

Alot of people seem to have Light Blue but I don't understand all the hype behind this fragrance.

It's a clean summer suited fragrance that evokes the feeling of an oceanic breeze. The hint of crisp fruit make it a little more appealing.
But for some odd reason, Light Blue gets tiring after a while. Strangely enough, the fragrance itself doesnt even last that long either.
I think it annoys me more to the point that everyone seems to be wearing this, so Light Blue has somewhat lost its mystique and appeal.

Not a very special fragrance.. just over rated.

A friend has it and offered me some sprays. It smelled nice on my skin, but it could only be considered nice. That's it. It's a very safe fragrance, very wearable, but not unique at all. Kinda boring, for me. The worse thing is, many people wear it.

It's a nice choice, but too boring and the price isn't responsible. It's too expensive for a dull bottle of a boring fragrance. Sorry, not my cup of tea at all.

Gosh.. there is a lot of comments and i have to go really low to leave my own comment. Erm, i knew this perfume few years ago when it's ad appear on tv. After try it, i decide that this is not for me. After bought D&G The One, i really want to try this again. I did, and still dont attract me enough.Why??
I dont know... then i search it in eBay and do a little research. I see the bid for new and used bottle of this perfume. Amazingly, this perfume have such a high demand worldwide. The auction always goes more than USD 40 for a new 25ml bottle, and it can goes up higher. Then i try it again, and i still cant remember the smell after few days. (Usually when I'm attracted to a perfume, i can recognize the smell from a mile away and i can remember the smell). The salesgirl told me that this smell nice, but i think it too simple, linear and very usual.
Because not so satisfy, i bought a bottle of 50ml. After wear it, i found that this perfume may share few same notes with Marc Jacobs Daisy, but less sweet. Nice, pleasant and suitable for daily use. Sillage is weak, unfortunately, but last on my skin.
As a conslusion, I still dont love it. Just wearable, that all.

I still like lacoste perfumes.

I bought this as a gift for someone, but had to take a sniff before I handed it over.
The top is sharp lemon, verging on bitter grapefruit citrus. It sweetens and the florals take over but this is quick and short lived, as the cedar comes on and settles in for the duration. I like cedar but I don't pick up anything else after the 1st 5 minutes, so it's rather boring...a 1 note wonder, almost verging on masculine in it's woodiness.
It has excellent sillage, as I only put on a drop, but it should for the price.

In short, it's ok, but I won't miss it when I give it away. I've got other cedar scents to fill the void.

D&G LIGHT BLUE is just that: light and blue, an aromatic and quasi-aquatic fragrance which evokes images of waves crashing against the shore.

LIGHT BLUE is cool and refreshing, opening with a powerful punch of juicy lemon, which manages to overwhelm whatever florals purport to be present--entirely undetectable to my nose. The wood does comes through a bit--this isn't only lemon juice and zest--but in the end LIGHT BLUE is more of a cologne or a splash than a perfume.

I can see spraying this all over my body lying naked under a ceiling fan as the temperature approaches 100F. But for that purpose, LIGHT BLUE may be overpriced--as well as overhyped.

based on the notes of this one I should like it. BUT - I smelled it on a co-worker today and it has a synthetic smell, not fresh or citrus-y at all. It supposed to be fresh but it's thick and heavy.

I remember having the bottle of light blue in my teens: it was my all time favourite: fresh and citrucy, and also the apple))yeah))
I recently surrendered to my nostalgia and bought another bottle and realized i can't wear it anymore. I don't know what was the problem: maybe i developed a taste for richer, maturer fragrances and light blue does not do it for me anymore. or it's a strong association with my school years - i did not particularly like them. so i gave it away to my younger cousin))

cedar + citrus is a winning combination. ALWAYS. For me, Light Blue goes a little bit heavy on the woody accords, but it's not hard to see why Light Blue is so widely appealing. It's clean, uncomplicated, and pleasant. I'm sure it's making Dolce&Gabbana a pretty penny.

More importantly, I think, Light Blue is really defining an era in perfumery. Gourmandy pink-peppery grapefruity trends aside, Light Blue hit the right chords of freshness that's really resonating with perfumistas all over the world. Whenever I smell a new release, three times out of five it reminds me of LIGHT BLUE in some way or the other. It's becoming a reference by which to measure newer citruses. Maybe in another decade or two, Light Blue would be a classic that redefined a genre.

One thing though - Light Blue is so common that you don't need to read these reviews - I guarantee you have smelled it for yourself somewhere on somebody before.

Finally got a chance to test it on my skin. I have unusual skin-chemistry that makes most fragrances go to the base notes directly, and Light Blue is no exception.

On first spray it has nice fresh citrus tones which disappear within a few minutes. The cedar dominates for most of the next couple hours, with a bitter note that I dislike standing out for a good half an hour. After 2 hrs it tones down a little to a more powdery scent with some lingering cedar, with no trace of citrus nor the bitter note remaining. Hardly any floral throughout.

Smells good on paper, and probably other people, but doesn't work for me. Main difference is that the citrus lasts on paper.

Overusage is not the fault of the fragrance. It's really quite lovely.

Light Blue is a classic hence its popularity. Intensely fresh and citrusy. It's a feel good, pick-me-up fragrance. I read that a lot of guys like this one too. I say go for it. Only weak and immature people need permission from others. Versace Eau Fraiche and Rabanne's Black XS for men are similar to Light Blue.

Light Blue is becoming like Cool Water for women, too popular. My recommendation would be to layer it with something else if you don't want to smell like everyone else.

While I admit this fragrance is VERY overused and almost embarassingly mainstream nowadays, I LOVE it !!! I don't know why, or even how I passed it up for almost 8 years, but since I've owned it since last May, I find myself almost constantly wearing this or Chanel Chance eau Fraiche. The apples and lemon give it such a beautiful tartness, while the bluebells give it a softness that evens out the scent. This and the Chanel are my 2 constants !! LOVE LOVE LOVE it !!!

When I fist sprayed on this perfume, a burst of refreshing citrus hit me. Not too sour not too sweet, this scent is perfect for the summer. Light, refreshing, simple, and unlike most designer perfumes, not too strong, anyone can pull of this fantastic scent. It reminds me of sweet lemonade on hot summer days and is deffinatley worth a try if you like citrusy fragrances.

This is a very light and citrusy scent. Upon first spraying, the lemon notes are very dominant. After the dry down the floral notes come out. I apply the lotion first and the perfume seems to last longer.

My current favorite is D & G L'Imperatrice and Light Blue is similar to me. Citrusy, clean and almost unisex.

Other people wearing this have wafted by me and I thought, "One of these days, I'm going to try this heavenly scent." Oh dear. Three hours later and my chemistry screams "Spicy pepper!" And not in a good way. In the kind of way that clings inside my nose. No amount of scrubbing with a cloth will erase the scent from my wrists. Unlike some readers, I don't think it smells like citrus or household cleaner, but I do agree that it lasts and can also be worn by men.

I bought a bottle of this stuff at full price. Unfortunately it must be old stock and has "turned" because the scent seems faint and won't last--the beautiful top notes disappear in just a few minutes. In desperation I've tried to spritz more of it on and the result was awful. The bellflower and something else in it is very pronounced on my skin [amber maybe???], it's sharp, silvery and metallic. It's the very same scent I detest after my warm skin touches cheap jewellry. I felt gross [and dirty!].

Today I experimented a bit. After my L'eau D'Issey wore down, I spritzed on the Light Blue and huzzah! I could tolerate it. Maybe I don't have to throw out the bottle after all!?

I adore the top notes. I love the juicy freshness of the citrus and Granny Smith apples near a grove of cedar trees. Shame that my bottle is compromised. After that, all I get are flowers, again the Bellflower is most apparent on my skin. This time it's not the metallic mess it was before. In my mind I see an old fashioned English garden, with roses and pretty Bluebells [the namesake is Light Blue after all], and late-blooming apple blossoms.

It is fresh feeling, youthful, and enticing--flirty even. The combo of bluebells and juicy fruits is very appealing. Is the fragrance that started the fruity-floral craze? I honestly prefer it to the nauseatingly sugar sweet ones that sell so well here.

This perfume is my signature smell. It's not over the top. It's not thick and musky. It's not heavy and overwhelming. I have never been able to find a fragrance I like as much as this. It is clean and soft. I have been wearing this perfume for years now. I still to this day have not only women but men asking me what I am wearing. It is classic and not overdone. I also do not find it annoyingly sweet and fruity like most "fresh" and "Light" smelling fragrances. Light and Simple enought to wear everyday but still sexy enough to wear out. I understand that everyone wants to be unique and wear something that is not common, but I guess if the shoe fits wear it. I love it and I don't think I will ever find a more suitable scent.

In a nutshell:

(1) Great, fresh and light citrus scent - with a hint of complexity.

(3) This is a popular scent, so you will find many others wearing it, which is a negative if you want to wear something unique.

Lovely smell! I don´t know if it should be labeled unisex, maybe it should!
Right now wherever i go in Portugal i can smell this!!!This fresh and citrusy great smell is now everywhere, unfortunately!!
When i smell this i can easily imagine a hot summer and sunny day,with a beautiful blue sky without any clouds...
Great smell!
I think Light blue for her is Black xs for men "sister"

Is Light Blue too mainstream for you? Same same but different?

Try layering it with some deep rich straight ambers - classy ones like M&G Ambre Prec. - & it turns into a delicious, meltingly-warm yet zesty amber. In case you are wondering why I would do such a thing to AP, it doesn't debase the amber at all.....but it does give LB a different, classic edge, with velvety smooth undertones & serious lasting power.

Next up - layering LB with some clear, clean citrus & watery fruity fragrances to see if it can be 'lifted'.

Light Blue is one of the few mainstream fragrances I actually like - and use. The fruity florals tend not to work on me at all, but this one does.

The opening is very fresh cocktail of citrus and green apple, but I can get the gentle amber and cedar lingering underneath. The zestiness of lemony accents and apple preserve the floral notes beautifully, usually my skin tends to turn florals quite sour.

The musk starts to emerge gradually, but on my skin this fragrance does not lose its freshness, it is probably the most lasting citrus scent I've ever tried.

I like this on summer, but it also makes a good work fragrance with it's good staying power but not at least bit intimidating presence with very fresh and uplifting qualities. I can totally see the unisex quality of this scent, actually I think that Emporio Armani White for Men stole quite a lot from this fragrance. But there are sweet and sensual notes on this, if your skin emphasizes those, the overall impression can be quite feminine.

The huge popularity is definitely a downside.

Simply gorgeous. A sparkling citrussy floral that is good any time of year. It is fresh, clean and complex and to me smells very expensive although, strangely, it can often be found for as little as £10 a bottle in the UK. I have got through a few bottles of this in the last five years, one a very large bottle and hope it is never discontinued (because the smelly things I love usually are not popular and therefore are discontinued - sob!). It seems to smell very different on each different person because a couple of times I have stopped people to ask what their gorgeous perfume is and they have said it was Light Blue. Perfume is a very personal and idiosyncratic choice so it's very hard and often inadvisable to buy perfume for someone 'blind' but I would always recommend this as a reasonably safe choice to a man wondering what to buy for a woman as I can't imagine many people not liking this perfume.
Ps. If you want a fresh 'apple' fragrance, in my opinion this is it!

A fresh and really nice fragrance. The perfume is great for hot days and nights, in winter or summer. I live in Brazil, in a extremely hot city, and I use it all the time. A really wearable one! It is great for people who does not like stronge and sweet fragrances. It can be popular, but, for me, it is still a wonderful scent that makes me feel full of energy.

The fragrance itself and it's popularity are different things, I think. The scent is perfectly balanced and very well-done, even if fruity and "light", it's not just a summer perfume since it can behave rather warm and comfortable in cooler weather. If someone tries it in winter it will naturally give a totally different impression. It's long lasting and it beautifully blooms on the skin even if it doesn't change much during the day by means of losting it's character or intensity. Light BLue is for a confident, healthy, self-consious young woman, however, teenagers use it as well and it smells different (simpler, fruitier) on most of them than on women in their 30's.
On the other hand this gorgeous fragrance became so popular that many woman doesn't use it only because of this fact. It's a shame but I really understand it, I like LB too but wander weather to wear it or not, because I don't want anyone to think I lack fantasy or personality. I wander how long this incredible popularity lasts...

I owned this one and I have to say it is an amazing perfume, again worn by the proper wearer.
I would love to wear it again but my brain got to associate it's smell with exams and can't stand it, probably because it is so distinctive.
I would have to say go ahead and at least try it!

yes it smells citrusy, and yes everyone wears it (at least i have 3 women i know wear light blue, by my recommendation).
citrus frags are so yesterday, true.
but i live in tropical climate country where deep dark 'thick' or powerful and long lasting scent will give people headache; so light - scented frag would be perfect. and yes, im not into floral fragrance, yet in fact i own 1 or 2 for certain occasions; where fruity frags will be considered as 'childlike' or 'immature' or 'teen-like'.

to me, light blue gives me more than citrus scent. it smells like clean air in bamboo forest.crisp, clean, and i can smell the bitterness of the bamboos, but not that bitter; light blue is bitter but plain-flavored rice plays behind all that. the citrus itself is like the curtain. so, light blue for me is a bamboo forest nearby a rice-mill along with a river in tropical country like here, but all of this scene is still covered by the citrus curtain. all that i need to do is spray some, wait until the curtain falls, then i can go walk into the scene.

I don't know why it has got all this popularity especially when summer arrives; it's in the best sellers in all perfumes stores. I didn't like it and find a fragrance like Cool water a million time better for hot summer days. If you really like this one, you many try Apparition Sky (Ungaro), a cc of LB and much cheaper.

This was a silly excuse for a perfume.

If your friend sprayed this on, you'd literally have to sniff her up close cause Light Blue is nothing more than a spray of air. - If you want to smell real clean air, go outside and sniff to your hearts content.

You might like to spray this on after a cool shower, but otherwise, there is very little about it that makes it worthy.

This is fresh and has plenty of citrus notes, but it's also strong (so make sure to use it sparingly). In the opening I get a little bit of the apple and lots of the lemon. The dry-down isn't very warm, but I do get more floral and wood notes. This is a very likeable fragrance, and can be worn by a huge range of ages and in pretty much any setting.

I recognise the scent on everyone who wears it, too. But not in a good sense.

It is metallic, chemical, it hits my gall bladder and makes me sick. I had it, I bought it after sniffing it, but one inch down the bottle I couldn't stand it.
It is said to be fresh and citrusy, but it smells like toilet cleaning lotions, they are citrusy and fresh as well.
If you want a D&G perfume "that evokes the spirit of the Sicilian summer", try Sicily.

I ordered this unsniffed because of the great reviews it got but I wish I hadn't. It was to floral and always made me sneeze. I ended up throwing this away and wasteing money. It's not the perfumes fault I just perfer more gourmand florals and this was just floral with no sweetness to it IMO. I have smelt this on other women and it smells lovely it's just not for me.

Wow, I am SO in the minority here - I hate this perfume and everything it stands for, it literally makes me ill! Such an artificial-smelling scent, acrid and metallic to my nose, with that fake "marine" note that is like fingernails on a blackboard to my poor olfactory system. Unfortunately for me it's pretty popular where I live, so there is no escape....

Yes, I realise it's a touch cliched now, but the first time I smelt this I was knocked out by just how lovely it was and I've loved it since. At every stage from that citrusy first spray right through to the last warm notes I love it. I hate the name, I dislike the fuzzy box, the lid constantly falls off in my bag and the bottle bores me, but I'm still searching for a fragrance that is the complete journey for me, as this one is.

I must live in the only corner of the world where people don't wear this perfume! Every day I slip-stream Addict, a cabinet of CK perfumes & Miss Dior Cherie. . . Light Blue would have made a welcome change!

So, my experience is different from everyone else's - a fresh look!

Lemon sherbet with a sour, fizzy twist, cedar & fresh air. It reminds me of the male Black XS, but where BXS has strawberries, LB has lemons. On my skin I find a lot of powder (which I love). It also makes me think of Roxy Love....Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche being a very distant cousin.

On me it's strong & sweet (not something I usually like) with good sillage (lots of compliments) & a reasonable lasting power, mixing very well with salty sea water on the beach.

I am one of those who "get" this perfume - granted, it doesn't change much but its simplicity is fine by me. It's not jaded for me, so it still remains a little ray of fizzy sunshine on a hot summer's day.

While this perfume is certainly not as offensive as many others, ths sharp disinfectant edge is highly disappointing. If this is a standard for fresh floral fruity perfumes full of citrus accords, these "fresh" fragrances all have a long way to go. I suppose I could imagine this smelling nice on the right skin, but this one is indeed far too common and synthetic lemon drop-y...

I have it and I like it not bad at all but not amazing. I just got it today from a store that had it for only $29.99. Amazing deal huh and it is the real deal. Anyway I think it smells nice and is a good all year round perfume. I don't smell the harshness that others describe either on my skin or on paper. It is sweet and is quite unique considering I have smelt and purchased a number of perfumes that "supposedly" smelled like Light Blue. Now I have the real thing. What I love the most is the apple and the mild cedar notes. Nothing in my collection smells like it so thats a plus. Once this bottle runs out I probably wouldn't buy it again but it is definately worth it if you can find it for a good deal. ;')

Edit:
Ehh on second thought I don't really care for it that much and I just sold my bottle. Light Blue is just not for me!

I know, I know…..another review on a fragrance many have commented on already….but the funny thing is, although, I have a lot of (better) fragrances, this one gets me the most compliments!....
Believe me, I life in Switzerland where people are most discreet and do not complement on anything easily!
I like "Light Blue" a lot, but I like fragrances that "stay" with me the whole day….."Light Blue" makes an exit on my skin within 2 hours and I am not able to smell a trace of it anymore…anywhere….not even on my clothes! But strangely others can! I even got complimented and required the name of the fragrance by a complete stranger while I was visiting a friend at the hospital!

Go figure……:-/

Out of all the popular perfumes I've tried, this one is by far the most nondescript and forgettable. Which Is why I'm not quite understanding all this hype about Light Blue. On my skin, it just smells like a generic aromatic citrus. I usually have a lot to say about a perfume regardless of whether or not I like it. This is all I have to say about LB.

An other exceptional scent from DG, I love Sicily as well. First I bought it years ago in Venice, but when I tried it I found it very sour and had headaches from it, but later i got very used to it and everybody noticed and liked it on me. Than it became too common and I stopped using it when my husband told me it reminds him of his old love.. too painful for me and for him to wear it again.. but I will love it forever.

I like this one very much..I know most keeps whining that it's common or smells like cedar shavings.. I'm happy to wear most popular scents (I'll say excluding Amor Amor... I'm constantly catching it in air from time to time... ) It smells like a lemon and apple with cedar a lot and I like it. On me it's a bit bitter and very nice. When lemony notes disappear there's cedar left with gentle hints of flowers. I love cedar smell, I enjoy to sharpen cedar-wood made pencils and sniff it then. It's sharp cedar here in this perfume. Still something freshy is left that makes this perfume perfect for hot day wear. It reminds me of holidays by the sea in my country.
Agree about furniture polish and cedar chest, but I like 'furniture' smell. :D I noticed that from bottle it smells a little different- sweet, very fresh and a bit floral. Very adorable.
Lasting power and projection is very good. Bottle nice too but I like it in smaller sizes better. The big one looks kinda cheap.
I'm not so in love with it that I would run to store tomorrow to get it.

My daughter had received this as a gift from someone who received it as a gift & she was going to give it to me. We both tried it a few times & when I decided I might like it, she decided she did like it & she kept it. I sneak down & put it on sometimes. Not one I would buy, but nice now & then. I think it has to grow on you. The midnotes or drydown are better.

finally I got the chance to smell this one and I like everything about it.the bottle is transparent like most of fresh and not heavy perfumes that I adore and in fact I like "blue" very much.
in fact the top notes are not very attracting for me.it's just full of citrus without any other dominant note,like so many perfumes I've seen here and there.
but the middle and base notes are great and it gets better as it remains on skin.I feel some hints of nina by nina ricci,but it's mixed better and fresher than than.
I'm not a fan of all Olivier Cresp perfumes,but this one is well done.the only problem is that it's so common these days.so I won't look that unique wearing it.

I have smelled this on a co worker & it changed my mind about this.It actually smelled very sweet on her.I couldn't believe it.After I had told her she smelled good she said Thanks its "light blue"....I thought WHAT it cant be.I now have a new found respect for light blue.I smelled way more then just lemon but as I didn't get right up on her & smell her (though I wanted to) I cant make out any distinct prominent notes.
I will definitely be trying light blue out for a full day next time.I had stuffed the sample I had way in the back on my sample drawer but I will be pulling it up to the front today ;) But I wont wear it to work. LOL

It is a twin of Moschino Love Love (or vise versa), very citrusy, over the top. The combination of lemon scent with cedar is lovely (like in Chance Fraishe, which is very gentle and elegant), but in Light Blue slash Love Love it's way overdone!

Update: I should correct myself, because I think, I oversprayed it last time. Georgeous citrus scent! Really worth its price and popularity!

This perfume's name fits it perfectly- "Light Blue" is bland, ubiquitous- background noise in a bottle. Just as the color is a popular, if uninspired choice, "Light Blue" is the soul of mediocrity. Its a blast of citrus, then fade to static.

About 2 months ago I made a list of all the best-selling fragrances around the globe and made it my duty to try them all. Light Blue was on this list.

I would love to have had a picture taken the moment I sniffed this for the very first time. I think I was in utter disbelief as to how people loved this perfume. All I got from this fragrance was a strong, sour burst of lemon. I usually associate lemon scents to detergents and cleaners around my home.

This was in no way a pretty or feminine fragrance. I have Moschino Funny! which is slightly similar, but more floral and much lighter. I consider Funny! a better alternative to Light Blue. I will however add that men seem to love this fragrance, even though they agree with me when I say it's strong and lemony sour.

Fragrance for the modern-casual yet simple woman. This fragrance is light and clean yet sophisticated and refined due to its complex scent.
An impish note of green apple emanates from the latest creation of the most impertinent of italian designers. Light blue, is not a lighter version despite its name. It sparkles with flowers and fruit notes that are an enticement to joie de vivre. The fragrance opens on a fresh and gourmet note of sicily cedar, granny smith apple and bluebells. The middle note is a bouquet of jasmine, bamboo and white rose. The end note reveals hints of cedarwood, amber and musk.

This is the best perfume I have bought in years. It is absolutely stunning. It is very longlasting and fresh. I could bathe in it. When I first bought it 3 years ago, I kept having to smell the wrist which I sprayed it on because I could not get enough of it. I find that it is a very uplifting scent and I have had so MANY compliments on it. There is another perfume called mosschino, which smells very similar but I don't like it as well.

First time i teasted it was a great fragance, i knew my Mom want it so i gave it to her as a christmas gift,after that, it was hard to me smellt it every time my mom wear it, it was because i was pregnat, and now, 2 years later my sister in law has it and i can not be near her when she used it, i guess it is because i remember the morning sickness this perfume made me had. But being honest it is a soft and chic fragance.

This scent is pleasant enough, but it reminds me of air freshener in a bathroom. I kept sniffing it and thinking, I would really like my bathroom to smell like this. It smells like floral lemon Pledge. It's a heap of citron with a dash of sweet florals, and a pinch of wood. Too much citron/lemon smell for me. Lasting power is good though, 4.5+ hours on me so far...

So fresh! Reminds me of scooting on a Vespa around the hairy scary twisty turny roads along the way to Positano in the height of summer. The sparkling blue water way below me, the bright blue sky above, the wind in my hair... Not that I've done it that way, doing it in a crowded bus with a crazy driver and being bus sick, is much less romantic! Anyway, Light Blue is very lemon zesty and crisp green appleish. A touch sharp, is that the cedar? but only when it first goes on. I get a hint of white musk and fresh lime zest too and those woods seem bright, can woods be bright? Maybe the scent of them brushing past you with the scent of citrus in a warm breeze. The florals are lovely too, but I could not have picked them for bluebells, jasmine or white rose if they hit me over the head. Either way, it all adds up to a bright and invigorating summer scent!

I get a burst of Lime rind & very little else.If I really search for it I can find the cedar & a very slight tinge of floral but it is so light I can't make it out.
I would say that this would be nice in the summer as it is so full of citrus.I myself would not wear such a bland scent but it may work well on you??

I know a lot of people love it. Not being one of them, I find Light Blue rather flat and one sided. I only get lemon and some apple, no jasmin nor rose or whatsoever. It's very fresh and nice for summers I guess, but doesnt evolve much on my skin. Im gld I only got a minature instead of a whole bottle, as my sister wasnt very keen on it either.

It's the best ever and not a bit boring. Downside: so many people know it and like it and ... wear it.

D & G have succeeded to create a fragrance that is a modern classic, being capable of capturing something very essential of our times. Light Blue also seems to allure loads of women considering the countless bottles of it sold around the globe since its launch. LB is a true "democratic" perfume so to speak, as anyone can wear it no matter what age or style or nationality she is. It is very likeable, excellent, easy-going and carefree choice for all kinds of occasions.

This was my first perfume ever. Light, zesty and refreshingly sugary sweet but not overwhelming! Doesn't change throughout the day and lasts an exceptionally long time. My boyfriend loved it on me; always asked me to wear it. I thought about getting the homme light blue for him but its just not the same. Like it a lot. A safe scent. Recommend it to those who keep it simple and sweet.

I sooo wanted to love this fragrance, however it did not work very well for my chemistry.
It did smell extremely great on my husband so I gave it to him! lol

It is a Unisex fragrance IMO and works very well wit his chemistry.

It just wasnt girly enough for my personal tastes.
Perhaps its the cedar?

When I wear this perfume I got a lot of compliments but only from girls!(-__-)

I really don't know why? But I still love it and use it anyway coz it smells so good to me!

My auntie said it smelled like dirty armpit on her hahahahaha. That's a very bad comment though!

I think it's depend on your own chemistry. Nobody smells the same. But to me this perfume is my favorite and now I use the third bottle!

This a great everyday fragrance for when you want to smell fresh, yet pretty and comforted. I do not understand why some would say this is unisex; I would think oddly of a man that would wear this scent. I like how Light Blue is not sweet and cloying. Instead, it is a soft, citrus scent that has something in it that reminds me of a sea breeze. I love the ocean, so that might be why I like this scent a lot. However, Victoria's Secret Pink with a Splash in Fresh & Clean is pretty much a duplicate of Light Blue and much less expensive. Plus, I usually like fruity-florals when I can spray them all over my body, and the VS scent is more appropriate for that. It lasts long too, so I'll stick to that instead.

I was expecting to love this scent since it is so popular. I got my hands on a sample, and it does not react nicely with my chemistry. I like citrus but this doesn't do it for me. I will have to say that the lasting power is excellent, though.

I found it a bit generic as well..I mean, personaly to me it's nothing special. Fresh, but it is the feshness of the soap's or shampoo's kind..or clean clothes

metallic, winterchill,cold and icy, very woman in careerish, not a scent you would wear if you want to give a impresson of warmth and intimacy.I was given this as a present but had to give it away. the metallic edge to this scent triggers my migraine at once.. my mom bought it unknowing of this and I had to ask her not to wear it when we meet.
Now my boyfriend´s sister wears it and how do I tell her that on the few times we get together It would be best if she left that one at home?!

This perfume is a summery clean, crisp perfume but has somewhat of a "powdery" drydown on my skin, which I haven't read happens to anyone else. I've been wearing a sample of this, and I probably won't purchase the full bottle. I think it smells pretty in the bottle, but does something strange on my skin. Oh, and it really is no big deal that this is popular and alot of people wear it. So what? Fragrances smell different on different people's chemistry, anyway.

My favorite perfume, however i don't feel as unique anymore when I wear it. Many other people own this fragrance because it is very simple and beautiful. I wear this whenever I want to feel a little more professional.

For me, it's an everlasting unisex parfume (it's my dad's fave also) for daily used.

Fine, fresh, delicate citrus notes makes me remember the passion fruit and watermelon :), but softly ...
It could be a subtle and lasting touch of fresh feminine scent to wear in relaxing moments...
I think it's a type of sexy breeze :)
Maybe common ... But even so smell nice :D
Good to the bed... and sleep :)
Suitable for summer days?: Yes ... and whenever you want, because for low temperatures are very fine too.
