Invigorating Sicilian cedar melds with the crisp vibrancy of apple and the guileless charm of the bluebell, to evoke the essence of a South Italian summer.
HEART
The freshness of bamboo nestles amid a glorious feminine bouquet of decadent jasmine and delicate white rose.
BASE
Redolent citron wood is entwined with voluptuous amber and a suggestive caress of musk.

Light Blue is a fresh and uplifting, crisp, citrus-y scent. Aside from Red Jeans by Versace which I had when I was much, much, much younger, I was never a fan of perfumes as I felt they were too over-powering until I found Light Blue. The reason why I loved and still love this scent is because it’s never over-powering, never too strong, never too stuffy, and never too perfume-y. Just to clarify, it is impossible to overdo it with Light Blue. You could drown yourself in it and still smell absolutely delightful! I first discovered Light Blue about 10 or so years ago and have kept repurchasing it (on and off through out the years) ever since. I’ve even gifted it to many of my girlfriends who’ve also instantly fallen in love with it. My favorite way to wear Light Blue was after spending the day swimming at the pool, fresh out of the shower, I’d spritz some on my pulse points on sun-warmed skin, before going out for the night (bowling, movies, etc…) with my summer-vacation friends. It’s the one perfume I always have to have with me when traveling abroad for a summer vacation as I feel it’s perfect for traipsing about Europe on cobblestoned streets dotted with cute little cafes and quaint little shops, or doing the whole touristy sight-seeing thing, or even just for a day at the beach. That said, Light Blue was also my go-to scent during my college years as I found it quite refreshing while running around campus in Kuwait’s unforgiving heat. More recently, I’ve just finished up yet another bottle (I’d take a photo except I can only find the blue cap at the moment) as I feel it’s light enough to wear to work everyday as opposed to some of the more obnoxious perfumes my coworkers have been sporting! By that same token, if you want a particularly potent perfume, Light Blue can tend to dissipate shortly after applying it (as most EDTs do) but I suspect it has more to do with them reformulating it, if anything. Overall, Light Blue is the quintessential summer fragrance!

I love the way Light Blue looks. It’s semi-transparent so you can clearly see when you are about to run out of it. Not only is that effective but there’s also a certain beauty to transparent/semi-transparent perfume bottles. “The light blue cap evokes the clear skies of the Mediterranean” making Light Blue hard to miss when it is erected on your vanity table or when you are digging through your purse looking for it. The reflective mirroring keeps the perfume from looking too playful by adding a sexy element to it but because it’s only a small surface and not all over the perfume bottle, it’s never gaudy or over the top. Even the box that this perfume comes in has a gorgeous, blue velvet-y cloth material that’s soft to the touch. Overall, I find the packaging very aesthetically pleasing because it’s simple yet chic.

Light Blue has quickly developed a cult following over the years because of the scent’s universal appeal turning Light Blue into a classic. As such, Light Blue comes in many different sizes: 6ml/0.25 oz rollerball, 25ml/0.8 edt spray, 50ml/1.6 oz edt spray, 100ml/3.3 oz edt spray, 200ml/6.7 oz edt spray. The rest of the products in the range consist of a Refreshing Body Cream, Energy Body Scrub & Shower Gel, Deo Spray, Deo Stick, Natural Deo Spray. There’s also a plethora of Gift Sets that either contain Light Blue in varied sizes or a range of different products in the scent Light Blue. The Gift Boxes also have the same beautiful blue velvet-y cloth material on them.
