Light Blue, Part Deux!

Are you a fan of Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana?

If so, check out their brand new “limited edition” version called Light Blue Escape to Panarea. Panarea is one of the eight famous Aeolian Islands, a volcanic island chain north of Sicily. (Don’t feel bad, I had to Google it.)


Personally, I don’t mind the original Light Blue, but it’s not my favorite. The lemon notes have always smelled a bit off to me – kind of like Lysol cleaning products. They just overpowered the perfume; and this is coming from someone who loves lemon/citrus scents.

But the Escape to Panarea takes it down a notch, using less lemon and more bergamot, tonka bean, and vanilla. The first sniff will remind you of the original, but after that, Panarea takes on a life of its own. It’s a little more warm than the original, but still very much a spring and summer scent. Of course, since I love it, it has to be a limited edition. So….if you do end up loving it, I’d recommend buying a couple bottles, as it will be gone in a few months!

$55-$75 at Sephora, Ulta, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, and Nordstrom.
