Desire Blue is a very nice citrus/aquatic. It has a light, fruity, and soft opening. The heart of DB is the sea notes with a slight woody background. The litchi really stays noticeable throughout the length of this scent. The ending is basically a light tonka or musk.
There are sometimes good reasons why fragrances are popular and I think this flanker from Dunhill is an easy thumbs up. It's different enough from your average citrus or aquatic that it may very well deserve a place on your shelf.
I hate to.recant on anything but after a few weares of this its just ok no great . Not a head turner by any means . I still like to wear it sometimes but now im starting to get the laundry soap and babypowder thing . Its not a stink but i wouldent put this on at date night or anything special . Hay i payed for the bottle might as well use it . I would have to say the opening is great . If the whole sent stayed like the opening ide keep it thumbs up .

great projectivity and longevity. a great aquatic/citrus hot weather scent. the orange blossom is really a kicker here along with bergamot and tonka. great if you are tired of cool water and acqua di gio...
A fresh fruity fragrance. A lot like Silver Scent by Bogart in my opinion. Desire Blue is a good one from Dunhill
I have always been a fan of the Dunhill line...Xcentric was my signature scent in the late 90's and early 2000's. After it became difficult to find, I switched to Desire Blue (having never owned the original Desire). Yes, it has that aquatic note - and it's a summer blue, but it is far from the familiar light blue fragrances that have become so commonplace these days. Desire Blue is powerful and different - and has musky overtones that I do not get from Versace EF, Chrome, D&G Light Blue, etc. It's super masculine and versatile. Ladies seem to love it. Great projection and all day longevity.
