Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Dreaming In Portofino Eau De Toilette

At the heart of the Italian Riviera lay a haven of natural beauty and glamorous style; Portofino is a location intrinsic to the illustrious Dolce & Gabbana heritage. In Portofino, faded pastel houses line the quay while yachts slowly glide in the inky blue waters.

Now that sense of reverie and intense sensuality has been captured forever with the new limited edition Light Blue Dreaming in Portofino for women, the latest incarnations of the iconic Summer fragrances that brings the sensuality of nature and the glamour of the Italian coast to life.

So what can be said about Dreaming in Portofino? I wasn't instantly teleported to the idyllic Mediterranean coast with one sniff. In lieu, I found myself walking through an English garden in the midst of spring with the sun shining brightly on the top of my head.

The perfume is a combination of crisp airy and sensual scents, with top notes of sun-kissed litchi and musky ambrette seed, heart notes of creamy iris and heady osmanthus, and finally, base notes of resinous amber and woody patchouli.

The blue coloured fragrance (the gentle shimmer of the sea comes to mind) is encased in a clear geometric column with a frosted white cap. The bottle itself is very simple, unassuming and sadly, pales in comparison with some of the cuter perfume bottles sitting on my mirrored tray.

I received compliments from random passers-by who caught a whiff of it, which was both flattering and worrying when they demanded that I disclose the name perfume that I was wearing stat.

This perfume is something that I would buy if I sprayed it on myself in the stores. I really really like it!

Dreaming in Portofino is available in Eau de Toilette form for RM 189 (25 ml), RM 267 (50 ml) and RM 344 (100 ml). Act quickly before it is gone!

This perfume sounds lovely! I agree, the bottle design is a bit simple, but I quite like simple things. And the scent does all the talking here. :)

I also have this! I don't wear perfume frequently and I think I don't put enough on, how much do you spray in order for it to be noticed?

Blair said...

The bottle is on the simple side, but that's not necessarily a bad thing! The scent sounds so pretty, I'll have to give it a sniff when I get the chance :)
