It is often said that what scent you use may actually say something about the type of person you are. This is one of the reasons why we take a certain amount of time and effort to find that one fragrance or scent that is perfect for us.

Pros

The Dolce & Gabbana Eau de Toilettes Spray, Light Blue is a blend of fruity yet masculine scents. The notes of musk, wood, oakmoss and incense give this cologne that fresh, woodsy scent that men generally prefer.

The infusion of mandarin, grapefruit and rosemary provides a lighter and crispier note to an otherwise heavy smell, making it a scent that attracts women. This combination of smells also gives the D & G Light Blue a fresh and clean scent.

It is a milder scent compared to some cologne available in the market today which makes it a perfect go-to scent for every day wear. The mix of mandarin, grapefruit and juniper provides this cologne with a fresh scent that is perfect for casual day wear.

However, with the heart notes of rosemary, musk, wood and incense, it is great for night time as well. Its subtle fragrance makes it the perfect scent for spring and summer.

For cologne with a milder and lighter scent, the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue has great projection during the first spray. It gives off the right amount of fragrant cloud without being too overwhelming.

It is an easy-to-wear, no fuss scent. If you like your scents not to be overly offensive, then the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is the perfect choice. The compact bottle is an added bonus making it easy to carry around or for travel.

Cons

Although the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is a perfect go-to scent for everyday wear, there were a handful of people who have reviewed this product found that it is not as long lasting as other colognes.

They found that the scent would generally last for only a few hours before the smell would start to fade away. Because of its mild and light scent, this has resulted in having to spray the cologne several times in a day.

Both the projection and the smell of this cologne also change during dry down. The first spray would give off a heavier scent and can be quite overwhelming, but it would settle down after an hour or so.  Projection, during that initial spray, is great however it becomes smaller during dry down.

A few people who have reviewed this product have found that the scent also mellows down after 4 to 5 hours or during dry down. Some find the lingering smell during this time much better than the initial spray, while others find it too mild.

A few have also mentioned that this scent can be a bit generic. The base of the cologne is the typical aquatic base, which comes from the oak wood and musk, making it, they say, not as exciting as other colognes.

Some are not as keen with its lighter scent as it is more subdued than expected. Since it is a milder scent, the suitability of the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue can also limit it for young adults and young professionals.

Verdict

Although there are certain concerns with its longevity, the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is a good option for more casual, everyday cologne.

The smell may be generic in that it smells like a few other fragrances on the market today like Calvin Klein’s Truth Eau de Parfum and Acqua di Gio Fragrance for Men, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. It is a smell that many people can associate and relate to.

The Dolce & Gabbana Eau de Toilettes Light Blue is a citrusy, green and a bit aquatic scent that can be a good signature fragrance for someone who is looking for a crisp and fresh scent.
