The Mediterranean calls

The cult fragrance from Dolce & Gabbana gets a reinvention. Plus a behind-the-scenes peek at the new, sensual campaign by Mario Testino

...Or as we like to call it, the David Gandy saga continues. 16 years on from the original Light Blue Femme and a decade for the masculine edition, Dolce & Gabbana's signature Light Blue fragrance is renewing its Mediterranean blend for an even longer-lasting sensuality. Fronted by none other than the inhumanly perfect David Gandy and Bianca Balti as they reprise their roles as lovers having a rendezvous in the waters off Faraglioni, Capri, the steamy campaign alludes to the irresistible nature of the new Light Blue Intense duo.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense

Inspired by the iconic coastal island, master perfumer Olivier Cresp rewrites the feminine Light Blue into a deeper rendition, opening with crisp notes of lemon and Granny Smith apple that segues into a scintillating floral mix of marigold and jasmine accords. Anchored by lustrous amber woods and musk, every spritz is a sensual awakening that wears like a vibrant Mediterranean paradise. And in a similar vein, the Light Blue Eau Intense pour Homme takes on a potent depth, spun by creator Alberto Morillas into a cocktail that contrast freshness with masculine sensuality. An infusion of aromatic juniper within an aquatic heart underscored by amber and musk lends the juice its heady intensity (as well as an extended sillage), while citrusy top notes of mandarin and frozen grapefruit delivers a cool and elegant twist to the cologne. 

Think of it as pure femininity and masculinity bottled into flacons of frosted glass — not hard to envision, what with David Gandy and Bianca Balti cranking up the smoulder factor — and the evocative Light Blue Eau Intense is your olfactory weapon of seduction.

The new Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Eau Intense is available at Sephora and department stores
