Celebrate the joy of a sunny day in Capri? Yes, I’m up for that! Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest really does have some joy about it – it’s so fresh and light that it feels every inch the right fragrance for a searingly hot day. If you don’t know the original Light Blue, it’s cedar and sharp apple up top and it’s these notes that have been given the lemon treatment.
Extracting a decent lemon zest to add to fragrance turns out to be not as easy as you’d think. Both pulp and skin are sensitive to the heat so need to be squeezed in a cold pressing technique to hold the scent and extract the essence. There’s a little smattering of jasmine and rose, followed by amber and musks, but overall, the impression is fresh, vibrant and happy.
There’s also a Healthy Glow Stick in a vibrant yellow casing – the shade is a sheeny, mid-tone gold, just right for shoulders, cheeks or shins. I don’t have full details of price and stockist for the highlight yet but will obviously update when I do.
The fragrance, in the meantime, has already launched (in both male and female versions) and it’s £55 HERE (with 15% off a £30 spend).
