Light Blue Swimming In Lipari description

Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue Swimming in Lipari is an olfactory ode to salt. Sea salt, to be specific, and if you crave sea salt notes in your olfactory wardrobe, this scent will make you enormously happy. It has one of the strongest and most dominant sea salt accords in aquatic perfumery.

A mild grapefruit note balances the dry appeal of the salt with its zesty acidity, but the emphasis in Lipari is all about the ocean’s pull and the tang of sea water. The salt note is a powerful opening statement, and it towers over the grapefruit, and the mandarin and rosemary notes in the heart. The texture is not “salty,” but feels closer to actual salt crystals. Your palate almost wants to count them as you inhale this scent. There are aquatic scents that evoke a seaside excursion; Swimming in Lipari evokes swimming underwater in the Mediterranean Sea. (Lipari is a small island in the Aeolian island chain off the coast of Italy, and its premiere vacation spot.)

The mandarin and rosemary heart notes are support notes in the same way as the grapefruit in the top. They bracket the sea salt accord with their aromatics and acidity, and bring its arid tang even further into focus. The rosemary note disappears into the sea salt accord so only its greenest edge is present, as the aromatic spice nuances fade into the salts already sharp profile.

The dry down is a trio of ambergris, musk, and a dry woods blend, which takes the salt theme into bleached driftwood territory. The combination of ambergris and musk especially conjures up sea breezes and high winds and frames the sea salt in a seaside environment, instead of heightening its inner dryness. The base notes also cool the salt’s temperature down on the palate, until the fragrance acquires a sleepy, beach nap vibe as it dries down.

Dolce & Gabbana are clever risk-takers with their perfumes, offering unique and daring perspectives on well-established genre styles. To take an aquatic scent whose basic inspiration is Light Blue Pour Homme, and turn it into a study in salt’s tangy allure is quirky and delightful. But best of all, it works.

If you feel best when you’re sporting a little hint of the coast on your skin, Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue Swimming in Lipari will make you feel like your iron will and devastating good looks can control the tide.

I am a fan of many of the Dolce & Gabbana colognes but had not tried this one yet. I was really pleased with this scent. Fresh, clean, and strong at first, but dies out quickly. It can still be found lingering on your clothes but doesn't carry very long but long enough for me to still give it a positive review and enjoy the amount of time it was detectable.

Not what I expected. It's a good scent but not for me. It's a little stronger than I'd normally wear. Giving it to my nephew. Doesn't smell masculine enough for me. It seems like something I would of definitely gone for in my 20s.

Smells generic. If you're looking for the best smelling extremely generic cologne, this is it. Stands out absolutely zero, but it gets a couple smells goods so it's the best throwaway beach or gym cologne around. Not offensive whatsoever, generic enough to be a solid 7 for everyone. Makes polo blue smell like a damn individual , though. For samples, smells good but not great. For bottles, pass. There are way better aquatics, and even better generic aquatics.

D&G Light Blue was already one of my favorite scents (and garnered the most compliments)-- LB Swimming in Lipari is a step up! The sheer number of people who stopped me in order to ask if they could have a better smell and would I write down the name of the cologne for them says more than a "5-heart" rating really could. It's very light, and the low-notes linger pleasantly.

This was one of the random colognes I picked from the list. Needless to say, I'm not a big fan! At first spray, it comes across as very, very strong, with a very metallic smell that's deep, and kind of gives me a headache. Then once its worn more, it turns into a smell mixture of a Men's Macy's at Christmas time, and generic hairspray. I received compliments on it, however I still dont like it. Smells cheap.
