The Italian luxury brand has added new scents to its Light Blue line, drawing inspiration from the earthly and marine treasures of the Aeolian Islands. Two new sunny bottles to discover come July.
Just like last year, Dolce & Gabbana is taking us on a voyage to the Aeolian Islands this summer with the two new limited editions in its “Blue Light” line: “Sunset in Salina” for women and “Swimming in Lipari” for men.
These two new fragrances are directly inspired by the nature of these two islands located north of Sicily. The first is associated to the land, while the second plunges us into the Mediterranean.
Between floral and aquatic notes
The feminine “Sunset in Salina” has a fresh, floral scent. It opens with fresh vine and violet leaves, and cedes to yellow freesia, jasmine and orange blossom. The base notes are amber, cedar and white musk.
“Swimming in Lipari,” on the other hand, is an invigorating aquatic scent that opens with accords of sea salt enhanced by the freshness of grapefruit. The heart combines mandarin and cool, aromatic rosemary while ambergris, dry woods and musky notes end the composition.
Bianca Balti, mistress of ceremonies
To represent these two scents, Dolce & Gabbana called on two of its main ambassadors: the Italian Bianca Balti, and British model David Gandy. Famous fashion photographer Mario Testino shot the campaign in Capri.
The two perfumes will be available come July starting at €39 (25ml) for “Sunset in Salina” and €38 (40ml) for “Swimming in Lipari.”
