Dolce & Gabbana’s Italian Zest

Brand: Dolce & Gabbana

City: Milan

The launch: Light Blue 2018 Italian Zest

The concept: a fresh twist on cult favourites Light Blue and Light Blue Pour Homme. Each scent has been brightened with lavish essences of Italy’s best citrus harvests: lemon for her and begamot for him

The effect: a rich olfactive experience that evokes a unique fizzy scent

Inspiration: summer in Capri

Perfumers: Olivier Cresp & Alberto Morillas

Light Blue Italian Zest

Scent style: fruity-floral for her

Notes: hand-harvested Primofiore lemon, Sicilian cedar, Granny Smith Apple, jasmine, warm musks, amber

Perfumer: Olivier Cresp

Fast fact: Extracted from hand-harvested Primofiore lemon, these fruits are grown from the tree’s first blooms and are considered the very best quality due to their more intense taste. Both the zest and pulp are sensitive to the heat and need to be squeezed according to an ancestral cold-pressing technique called sfumatrice, to produce a true-to-nature essence with gourmand facets.

Light Blue Italain Zest Pour Homme

Scent style: Fresh woody-spicy scent for him

Notes: bergamot, grapefruit, mandarin, pepper, juniper, rosemary, rosewood

Perfumer: Alberto Morillas

Fast fact: Shaped like a small yellow orange, Citrus Bergamia is exclusively grown in Calabria. The essential oil is obtained by peeling the fruit, then cold-pressing the peel to protect its complex, delicate aromas.

 

Citrus lemon is a species of small evergreen tree in the flowering plant family Rutaceae, native to Asia. Although the origin of lemons is unknown, the fruit is thought to have first grown in Northeast India or China. Lemons entered Europe near Southern Italy in the second century AD during the times of Ancient Rome. It was Christopher Columbus who brought lemon seeds to America in 1493. The quality of lemon essence varies wildly in perfumery and can range from $7 a pound to $30 for premium quality.

    Lemons always remind me of sunny hot Italy as my friends have lemon trees at their cottage! No doubt this will be a great success for Dolce and Gabbana! @linlett60
