Reviews of Light Blue pour Homme Sun

For starters, let it be known that Dolce & Gabbana are self-parody in the men's segment, issuing flanker after inane flanker of lines all over a decade old, taking such a tired and fiscally-safe line of brand rehash that they likely need to be put out of their own misery like Old Yeller if not for the respect commanded by the old pillars upon which all these flankers are based. It also needs to be mentioned that Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme (2007) is the one pillar amongst the legacy lineup that I don't much care for, so I went into this flanker review expecting another forgettable release like Light Blue Pour Homme Italian Zest (2018). Much to my utter shock, Light Blue Pour Homme Sun (2019) isn't just better than Italian Zest, but better than the original Light Blue, actually squeaking by as a worthwhile freshie for the summer months. There's a lot of Light Blue Pour Homme DNA in this "Sun" variant, but the primary difference is a focus away from dry/crisp/boring oceanic accords and a new center of gravity based around a beachy theme bolstered by coconut, osmanthus, ozone, and ginger. I don't know who penned this, but I doubt it would be another phoned-in Alberto Morillas composition like the original.

There are only a few small tweaks here but they are enough to turn something I'd never wear into something I'd consider buying, because the kind of semi-earthy and semi-fruity beach vibe here is something the aquatic genre hasn't seen since the glory days of the genre between the late 80's and early 2000's with stuff like Aramis New West (1989), Calvin Klein Escape for Men (1993), and Jil Sander Sun Men (2002). The Light Blue Pour Homme opening is intact, with aquatic notes and dry citrus, but bolstered with sweeter grapefruit and a sharp ozonic aldehyde. The heart is where the real magic lives, as calone merges with osmanthus and coconut to make that sun tan lotion smell which really recalls summer trips to the ocean, with rosemary and dry woods segueing into the standard Light Blue Pour Homme base. This base isn't entirely untampered, as ginger and vanilla warm and mildly sweeten the musk, oakmoss, cedar, and vetiver carrying over from the original. startlingly complex for an aquatic, and much warmer with more development, Light Blue Pour Homme Sun just feels like a more complete version of the original. Wear time is a decent eight hours, and despite the vacation vibes, this flanker is warm enough for spring and early fall use too, but best in casual settings.

Honestly, it's the coconut and osmanthus that really make this a cut above most aquatics and even the original Light Blue, as those notes rarely appear in any masculine, but when they do, offer a gender-blurring versatility and olfactive "happiness" that's hard not to like. Osmanthus in particular is hard to pull off in a masculine context, because its apricot-like aroma is so ingrained with feminine fruity florals that it usually triggers those associations in CISHET guys familiar with their wife's or girlfriend's wardrobe. I'd almost say this should replace the original Light Blue Pour Homme as the new pillar standard, as it does more for the aquatic genre than anything has since Bvlgari Aqva Amari (2014), which is another uncommonly warm and unique (also read: misunderstood) aquatic that offers more than it appears to be at face value. Thumbs up to Dolce & Gabbana for doing something creative again, even if it is in a likely-limited flanker form. Sampling this may be difficult, as most stores I've found do not have testers of it, and just box stock, but if you can get a whiff of Light Blue Pour Homme Sun, you won't be sorry.

Very similar to the original Light Blue pour Homme but this flanker is greener, especially as it dries down. While it would be hard to smell the difference from the original just in passing, at least this flanker is detectably different when you smell it up close. Some of the others were really hard to tell that there was much of a difference in smell at all.

Lukewarm thumbs up because while it smells good, with a name like Sun and notes of grapefruit, ginger and coconut listed, it didn't exactly meet my expectations.

Performance is great, nice projection and all day longevity.
