True Summer Classic – Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense Fragrance Review

In this article, I’ll be providing a review on Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense. A fragrance by the house of Dolce & Gabbana as evident by the name.

I’m not normally a fan of mild aquatic scents that are available on the market today. So I didn’t have high hopes for Light Blue Pour Homme Eau Intense. This family of perfumes receives a lot of (expensive) commercial attention from D&G. Most likely, their goal is to persuade buyers that wearing this fragrance would make them seem like David Gandy, a well-built D&G model. I suppose; That’s how I view the advertisements at-least. Last year, I was looking for a new gym perfume (necessary with some mandarine), and decided to blind buy this Light Blue flanker. If it turns out I actually turn into a male model than it’s a sweet deal.

However, I’m glad that I did give Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense a chance. It pleasantly surprised me, and I consider that to be a really good summer fragrance.

I can completely see why D&G Light Blue Intense is so popular. It has a lovely fruity opening of grapefruit, and orange that fades to a saline, clean, musky finish. It smells just like you’ve just gotten out of the water on a hot summer day, which makes it ideal for summer. It’s popular, like other blue perfumes, but it’s not a generic ‘aftershave,’ and it’s actually pretty unique, and distinct. The performance is likewise excellent for a fresh aroma that will endure for the most of the day.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense is a refreshing scent for the summer. It’s appropriate for both the evening, and the day. It’s not a light, fresh perfume; it’s more on the heavier side, so keep that in mind if you’re looking for a summer aroma. To my nose, the sea notes are the most prominent, while citrus notes are considerably less. If you enjoy sea vibes, and want a little more depth, and weight to your blue fragrances giving Light Blue Eau Intense a try is a must for you.


Dolce&Gabbana’s Light Blue Eau Intense was launched in 2007 as a dynamic, manly counterpart to Dolce&Gabbana’s popular feminine scent. Master perfumer Alberto Morillas continues to tell the narrative with Light Blue Eau Intense pour Homme: the trademark contrast of freshness, and sensuality becomes even more powerful.

Dolce&Gabbana’s Light Blue Eau Intense Pour Homme is a Woody Aquatic fragrance for men. Light Blue Eau Intense Pour Homme was released in 2017. Alberto Morillas is the man behind this scent. Grapefruit, and Mandarin Orange are in the top notes; sea water and Juniper are in the middle notes; while Musk and Amberwood are in the base notes.


D&G Light Blue Eau Intense opens with a very distinct sea water accord, which may elicit strong emotions in those with untrained nooses. The bitterness of grapefruit is blended with this note. The introduction is powerful but not obnoxious, and it subsequently settles down wonderfully.

The drydown is rather unexpected, and it may be the most attractive aspect of the Light Blue Eau Intense: a synthetic musky accord with a juicy sweet orange note combo. The musky note adds a bit of dirt to the orange – mandarin, just enough to make the blend more manly. It is extremely remarkable that the orange mandarin note appears out of nowhere after so many hours. Every time I wear this scent, it astounds me.

We arrive at the heart note after 1-2 hours. From here on out, D&G Light Blue Eau Intense woody-harsh-freshly-cool with a subliminal sweetness that my garden-affine companion immediately identified as “calendula.”

D&G Light Blue Eau Intense is a great summer scent for anything above 25 degrees, and even better if it’s over 30 degrees. This scent is incredibly refreshing, and is ideal for summer, sun, and sunlight!

Overall, this is a great blue summer fragrance. It gives me classic summer aquatic vibes through, and through.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense Fragrance Review


Anyone who has smelled Alberto Morillas’ Acqua di Gio Profumo would immediately recognise D&G Light Blue Eau Intense as a “aromatic sea note” fragrance. It’s well-rounded, well put together, somewhat green, naturally zesty, clean, and sharpened by the juniper, which cuts through the sweeter parts of the citrus to keep it fascinating, and fresh-smelling. It has a soapiness that reminds me of a bubble bath in the greatest manner conceivable. All in all, an excellent fragrance.

D&G Light Blue Eau Intense is an absolutely wonderful scent. It’s all about the summer feelings. It’s just a pleasant scent. It’s one of just two perfumes I’ve tried that can transport me to a tropical location, the other being Creed’s Virgin Island Water. The saline note complements the aquatic, citrus, and flowery elements well. It’s not overtly macho, but it’s a good pick for a guy who wants to smell like a man. It’s a no-brainer buy for any male in your life, and a pretty safe bet as a present.
