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.
I absolutely love the smell of this perfume! It smells amazing...im so happy I received it before I go on vacation. This is definitely going in my purse with me.
Smell is too strong and flowery. Not my favorite scent.
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 am in love!! This is a soft and slightly sassy scent. I love how understated and clean it is!
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.
It smells wonderful. My husband can't keep his hands to himself whenever I wear it. I highly recommend it to all women!
Has too much of a baby powder scent for me.
I haven't got my light Blue Dreaming in Portofino by Dolce& Gabbana for May yet but i know it smells good.
I like the scent. Sweet but has a hint of a powdery smell to it. It lasts all day tho
Love this one light scent great for everyday!!
Very pretty floral scent.. Not a perfume you should overly spray or it will be to much.. Very girly scent...
Absolutely love this scent! It's so light and fresh. One of my new favorites.
I have always loved this scent, it is a go-to, love the update on it!
I love how light it is. A touch o romance for sure.
Lovely floral/fresh fragrance. I feel it doesn't last all day though, but definitely a favorite.
Not my favorite but I like it. It is a tad but too sweet for my liking.
I like it a lot! Light and airy. I'm looking forward to trying the other D&G Light Blue collection
Love this perfume!! On my top 10 list of favorites.
Love this perfume .. it's a clean sweet smell
Love this fragrance. Smells so good.
I loveeee this scent light fresh and long lasting.
Very fresh and light. Totally the kind of scent I am taking with me for my Mexico vacation! I also have the D&G Light Blue Sunset in Solina, looking forward to completing the light blue collection! While the sunset one is more spicy and rich, this one is light, airy and floral.
I prefer the Original Light Blue. This one was a weird mix of powdery and floral
Love the scent. Very nice and not overpowering for office.
Its ok. Its very strong at first. It reminds me of something an older woman would wear. Not inlove with it. But i have worn it a few times.
I love this perfume. It smells so good and it lasts along time.
Really like this one very crisp and not to sweet
I was drawn in by the freshness of this scent. Not quite light and certainly long-lasting, this perfume's floral notes made it perfect for summer days and nights!! It's a clean and fresh scent that I come back to again and again.
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.
I feel like it smelt too strong.
I loved this scent. It was very intriguing and i received several compliments on it
It was ok. It didnt have a unique smell so I felt like I had smelled so many like it before. Would not purchase it,
I really enjoyed this scent. My only complaint is that it does not stay with you. It wears off quickly.
Didnt care for it as much as original Light Blue, but its still a decent scent.
It's such a nice and refreshing scent. I thought it was gonna be very much like the original Light Blue which I love, but that one smells more sophisticated, whereas this one is more of a pure and clean smell.
This is so fresh and clean and last a long time! I luv it!
I really love how light & fresh this scent is.
This smells amazing. Soft and sexy for the summer!
This one smells pretty good. Not as good as the Escape to Panarea though. It's very light. More floral than any of the other Light Blues that I've smelled. Doesn't last long at all.
Of all the scents I have ordered, this one is my favorite! I love the scent and think it's ideal for summertime.
Love, love love!! I get tons of compliments on this one.
Four stars because it doesn't last long at all :( It's a very lovely scent, I just wish it lasted longer
I am obsessed with this scent! I get lots of compliments on it and I will say the scent lasts all day!
It's ok, not a big fan doesn't last
My Scent Bird subscription arrived empty this month!!! I emailed customer service but have not received a response. I sent a DM on Instagram and I was told they would let customer service know, but I still have no resolution to this issue. I need to receive the perfume in order to review it!
NEVER received it, and they ask me to review it. Seriously
Love this scent! It's light and airy with some citrus and floral notes. It's the perfect scent for summer. I have noticed I need to reapply about half way through the day though, which is upsetting. As far as everyone else is saying, I don't think this is an old lady/mature scent. I'm nearing 30 and love it!
Love it...it's soft and clean perfect for daily use.
This scent is not at all for me. My mother thinks it smells wonderful so I think I will give it to her.
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.
Was so pleasantly surprised when the original citrusy scent turned into a wonderful sweet powdery scent. Love it and it lasts a really long time. My kind of scent.
Fabulous! I'm in love with this scent and will be buying the bottle. Perfect for summer.
When I first tried Light Blue years ago I was a diehard Dolce & Gabbana pour Femme with the red cap I preferred the latter but I really love this Light Blue Dreaming of Portofino for spring and summer into fall months
The smell is wonderful but cannot smell it after spraying. It has no longevity even in hair or on clothes.
Perfect for daytime use. Scent is more subtle than the original Light Blue.
This is one of my new favorites! It's subtle but the scent lasts! I love it :)
Love this scent! It's been one of my favorites for a while!
I love love love this scent...Everything about it. This a year round scent that is good anywhere you go. This will now be my all time "go to" scent. Simply in love!
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.
This is a refreshingly light and powdery scent, prefect for summer.
Beautiful light powdery soft scent 2 spritz is just enough. Great for everyday or special occasions. Love wearing this scent for spring or summer.
I love this scent. It's light and makes me smile
I liked this however it wasn't what I expected a little to musky for me not the fresh sent I expected
Smells nice, but I prefer the original Light Blue.
This one is a heavier smelling fragrance it's good for cold fall days that smells very lovely
I love this! I thought it was too strong at first but it dried down to a beautiful, clean scent. Will definitely be purchasing.
This fragrance is growing on me. The first time I tried it, I thought I had made a mistake, but the more I wear it the more I like it...
I love this fragrance! When first sprayed it on, it had a sharp and strong scent but once it dries down, it's really amazing! This will be a full size purchase. Clean, fresh, and feminine. Even my husband complimented this nice fragrance.
Love this! So floral and fruity, yet delicate. The longer it's on my skin, the better it smells!
Smells amazing. Lots of compliments. Doesn't last as long as I'd like but I find all dolce and Gabbana perfumes are like that.
This perfume was a like. Great to wear in daytime for a light exotic fragrance
Very nice but not as crisp and clean as the original Light Blue.
I never was attracted to D&G. However, this is a breath of fresh air with some heavy notes.
Absolutely love this scent...one of my all time faves!
I loved this, I might purchase the full size bottle.
Very good and sexy grown woman scent
