Fresh Summer Scent
I love D&G fragrances and this does not disappoint. It's a beautiful summer aquatic scent that packs a smooth punch. it's not over powering or too strong. It has a Male likeness to it...moreso unisex. It last quite awhile on my skin and it gets plenty of compliments. It's the perfect scent for spring/summer and a night out on the summer nights. I just truly love this fragrance.

Very refreshing scent. Was my favorite so far. My sister even liked it and we don't agree on perfumes.

It's nothing like Light Blue and is extremely floral. It's just alright.

un poco decepcionada
el olor es muy suave y siento que no dura mucho oliendo 😥 esperaba más de este perfume ya que tengo otro de esta misma marca y si que dura el olor y con poco que uses tiene y este no, a si que un poco decepcionada

Lovely
It starts out a little loud but soon calms down to a lovely floral and the dry down is quite beautiful. My only complaint is that it is a little too soft and doesn’t last long enough which is typical for the D&G fragrances I’ve tried. I will say of all the Light Blue flankers I’ve tried, this is the least like LB. So if it’s LB you want, you may be disappointed with this one.

Love this EDT - a deep, exotic floral spin on D&G Light Blue - more of an "asian" floral
First of all, I am reviewing this EDT based on a full size bottle that I already own. Dreaming in Portofino was actually my first purchase in the D&G Light Blue collection, and we bought it on our way to a beach vacation (a habit that I highly recommend getting into - get yourself a new scent before going away for the best way to remember your vacations!) Anyways, this scent is a more floral, less restrained version of Light Blue. Light Blue's crisp citrus and bluebell notes are replaced with iris and amber, and the effect is really intense. If you like LB's citrus - this EDT is not going to be for you, because there is no citrus here. However, it does somehow achieve the same kind of balanced effect of Light Blue - there is still a clean feel, despite what feels like all the petals floating in the air. It reminds me a bit of "Stella" (the original) in that characteristic. Also keep in mind this EDT is originally a special edition from 2012, so it won't last much longer, and that its scent may have changed over time depending on storage conditions. Who will like this: folks who do not mind a stronger floral scent with a musk/amber backbone. This is not a sweet scent in the least - if you're looking for sweet fruit, head on over to D&G's The One and see my review there.

This scent reminded me of being on the ocean in the summertime. It has a sexy, yet light impression. This is something that I would definately purchase the full size of. It is out of stock on this website but I am going to find it at one of my favorite retail chains. Love testing perfumes before making such a big purchase. Thanks Scentbird♡

I wanted to try something hat would normally never buy. I like the top notes but then it gets a little old lady for me.. it seems to work well with my natural oils so it's not stinky.. but I don't think I'll be buying full size anytime soon.

I've purchased light blue, via a store purchase, so I knew what it should have smelled like, and it didn't smell like light blue. Then I realized it was light blue dreaming in portofino and thought maybe it was ok. I'm waiting for my pick for next month, because I'm starting to think all of the perfumes I've gotten smell the same...so, I'm getting concerned. Next month will be my determination.

Ok, gave this one another shot. Wouldn't let me edit my last post sorry guys, here goes (again)! It still reminds me slightly of a dog shampoo for some reason... but it definitely is very fresh smelling! Lol!The reason I thought it smelled so "mature" I think is because I sprayed it on a clothing item that already had another scent on it from lotion, and the smells mixed badly. I would imagine you might like this if you like Adidas for Women, and are looking for something aquatic and sporty but a little softer. Still not for me though- I tend to lean more towards juicy, fruity, floral. But not bad! If you like the original light blue you'll probably love this.

Ok, did I get a different perfume than everyone else? This smells WAY too mature for me (can't picture it on anyone under 65) and although it smells "decent" when first sprayed (in a very much more mature lady way) it fades to a smell that reminds me of... how do I say this.. the vet's office? Like flea shampoo for dogs. Ew. Hated every second of it and unfortunately for me, it DOES have staying power.

Strong initially, almost somewhat masculine/cologne like. Give it a few minutes and it settles to a fresh scent with depth. I really enjoy the scent but it does not last on my skin, two hours later I need to sniff close to the wrist to smell it. Four hours later I could apply a different perfume. I have yet to spray it on clothing and test its lasting, though I prefer to spray on before dressing.
