When I discovered Light Blue in 2003 I was so thrilled that I instantly wished for a masculine version. After 4 years, my dream came true and in 2007, a couple of month after its arrival on the market, I was finally able to had Light Blue Pour Homme in my collection, one of the few scents that I knew I had to purchase even before entering the market. But, as much as I loved this D&G perfume, I never re-new it in my collection, because my priorities had change during time.
Now, Light Blue Living Stromboli, the new flanker arrived on the market in March this year is one woody aquatic scent that I’m sure I will not even consider for purchasing. Presented in the same time with its feminine counterpart, Light Blue Dreaming in Portofino, these 2 scents were aimed at the persons who love summer time and romance and presumably fans of the original creations.
Because I did not sniff Dreaming in Portofino (yet!), I will preserve the enthusiasm for later, but what I should say for now, is that I expected a lot more from Light Blue Living Stromboli. The fragrance has a very discrete evolution from the top until the base notes, a phase in which regains somehow the attributes of a D&G perfume.
Light Blue Living Stromboli starts off with a blend of pink pepper and citrus, in a construction that stays close to the skin. After moving fast into mid development, you will be able to detect the note of geranium, which could have been stingier. The final part is the moment in which the scent becomes more powerful, thanks to a mix of amber, patchouli and vetiver. Light Blue Living Stromboli comes in a bottle that preserves the same shape and color scheme as the original, except the name extension that is printed on the flask and the packaging box which sports a Mediterranean island’s landscape.
