.Dolce & Gabbana is an Italian luxury fashion house founded in 1985 in Legnano by Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
The two met in Milan in 1980 and designed for the same fashion house. In 1982, they established a designer consulting studio; in time it grew to become “Dolce & Gabbana”. They presented their first women’s collection in 1985 in Milan, where a year later their store would open its doors.
In 1988, they launched a leotard line, and in 1989 they began designing underwear and swimming costumes. Dolce & Gabbana started to export their products to Japan and other countries including the United States, where they founded their own showroom in 1990. In 1992, the same year they presented their men’s collection, they also launched their first perfume Dolce & Gabbana.
They won the Woolmark award in 1991, and Perfume’s Academy “Most Feminine Flavor of the Year” in 1993 for their fragrance Dolce & Gabbana Parfum. By the end of the 1990s, the company’s revenues were around US$500 million and in 2003 their revenue reached $633 million. By 2005, their turnover was €600 million.
Olivier Cresp was born 1955 born in Grasse, France in 1955. His sister is fellow perfumer Françoise Caron. His father and grandfather both traded in the raw materials used in making perfume.
Cresp has been a perfumer since 1975. He started working for Firmenich in 1992, and became a Master Perfumer in 2006. He lives in Paris, and his son Sebastien who is also a perfumer.
Top Notes – Blue Bells, Granny Smith Apples and Sicilian Cedar
Middle Notes – White Rose, Jasmine, Bamboo
Base Notes – Amber, Cedarwood and Musk.
Description of Notes
- Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
- Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
- Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.
What was our Findings
Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana has a fresh and fruity fragrance infused by the mixture of apple and cedar followed by the continued scent of musk through your day.
So if that`s what your after in your aftershave, then this is the fragrance for you as it wont let you down all day long.
We found prices do vary alot between different companies but lets say £50.00 should get you a decent size bottle
- This cologne for men smells fantastic and lasts a long time once applied to your skin. I bought this for my husband for Christmas and he is thrilled with it, and wears it out everywhere we go. This smells even better once mixed with your personal body chemistry. Great, authentic, reasonably priced product.
- Love the notes it gives you after you apply! Good parfum and it smells good ????????
- Bought this second time after first bottle ran out ..beautiful perfume I love it!
- Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana is, I think, my most favoutite perfume. And Fragrance Direct is the best place to buy it from in my humble opinion. I was super happy with the speed of delivery and the excellent packaging that it came in. And, best of all, the price! Don’t think they can be beaten. One very happy customer here! Thank you!
Reasons to consider when purchasing your Perfume.
The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper. Because of this, the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent.
Which is really a false saving because you will over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.
There are lots of reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume as the following will explain;
Description of Types of Perfume
- Perfume or Extrait – in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds.
- Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) – 15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
- Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) – 10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
- Eau de toilette (EDT) – 5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
- Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) – Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
- Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.
Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?
Well most people will put their aftershave in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume.
Perfumes hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom, so my advice would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as the manufacturer specifications.
