This New Dolce & Gabbana Fragrance Will Transport You to Italy in a Spritz
If it feels like everyone is traveling to Italy without you, that certainly might be the case. The good news: a fragrance is the quickest way to instantly transport you anywhere. So when we think of a romantic summer in Italy, the first scent that comes to mind is the new Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue Italian Love Eau de Toilette ($86).
Listen, you may not be soaking up the sun's rays with an Aperol Spritz in hand right this moment, but that doesn't mean you can't pretend to be doing exactly that. The power of fragrance is quite strong, and this sensual fruity floral will make you feel like the main character in a romantic Italian film.
The limited-edition scent is alluring, with top notes of Italian lemon and crisp Granny Smith apple, followed by a base of cedarwood, musk, vetiver, and amyris sandalwood. The bottle is simple and sleek with shining silver accents that pay homage to the bright, shining rays of the Mediterranean sun. But it's the intensely blue liquid that reminds us of the deep waters surrounding Capri. Picture yourself wearing pristine linens, oversize sunnies, and a silk headscarf — such a vibe.
The box it comes in is also evocative of the iconic striped umbrellas and lounge chairs that dot the coves of Capri. Like an intense summer love, Light Blue Italian Love leaves a lasting impression that's not easily forgotten.
The men's version, Light Blue Italian Love Pour Homme Eau de Toilette ($68), is just as rousing with a fresh woody aquatic scent that complements the women's iteration. It's composed with key notes of flavorful grapefruit, mandarin, and pink pepper intertwined with musk, rosemary, and amberwood.
Together they create a sensual duo; a fragrant love story. You might not be on the Italian coast, but with one spritz, you're there in spirit.
