~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For Mother's Day, I received a blue gift--a fragrance called, "Light Blue" from Dolce & Gabbana.



I copied this description from the web site:

A stunning perfume, overwhelming and irresistible like the joy of living. Surprising and colored: the liveliness of Sicilian citron, the happiness of Granny Smith apple, the spontaneity of bluebells. Feminine and resolute: the intensity of jasmine, the freshness of bamboo, the charm of white rose. Deep and true: the character of cedarwood, the fullness of amber, the embrace of musk.

Notes: Sicilian Citron, Bluebell, Granny Smith Apple, Jasmine Sambac, Bamboo, White Rose, Cedarwood, Amber, Musk.
Style: Deep and true.


Here's what the box and bottle look like. Please note that I did not receive any compensation for this post.



However, I do feel that it is the perfect fragrance for me!

Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Sally, I had fun with my post today. I think you will get a chuckle or two.

Wow, how lucky you are to receive that perfume. I have never smelled it but I like the ingredients. Blue box and 'Light Blue fragrance. A wonderful Mother's Day gift. Next time I am in a nice store I will smell it. I only use Opium and have for years. Am I in a rut?? Smile!

Have a happy day today.
Love ya, Jeanne

janezlifeandtimes said...

Mine is a bit basic but kind of essential, OK not essential but it sure is helpful

How it smells? Guess I won't know, but glad it is just right for you.

Had to give up perfume with these allergies of mine. Enough other people wear it, so I enjoy theirs.

I've never heard of that fragrance, but it should could suit me too! The next time I'm in a department store, I'll have to stroll through the cosmetics aisle and actually let them spray me with this one! LOL!

A wonderful fragrance! One of my faves.

Heidi said...

Hi Sally,
Very nice, such an elegant package and bottle. It's wonderful to find just the perfect fragrance - I think they become a part of who we are! My daughters identify me with lavender - I gave up perfume years ago due to headaches, but still love essential oils. I'd love to wear real perfume, though,(I miss it!) and will look for yours - perhaps as a gift for someone!
Happy Blue Monday, thanks for hositing us!
XO

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, thinking of you and was wondering if you are busy in the AM. Would you like to call me. I will just have to remember I play bridge. HA! We are up and around by 8:00am.

Today is a beautiful day in the mountains. Temps in the low 70's with a wonderful breeze. After our visit to Fl. Memorial Day week, I am reminded how wonderful it is to live here. Have you had hot weather too?

Happy day to you my friend.
Love, Jeanne

Judi said...

Hi Sally and happy belated Monday..
The fragrance combinations in the perfume sound very pleasing. The bottle is so nice too. Love the ingredients....your post came in good time because I was making perfume oil last night combining scents and I made another one tonight. I was wondering about scent combinations and now you've given me ideas.

I hope you are having a great week so far.
*hugs*

Hi Sally, I'm late visiting here--have had lots of company the past week. What a fun description for a perfume. I wonder whose job it is to write those things?!
