Black XS by Paco Rabanne
I want to wear something smell like Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue (women version). I already have Versace
Man Eau Fraîche. But is it the only Men Fragrance that smell like that? Can anyone let me know any other
alternative? Thank you so much...

The men's version of Light Blue smells quite like the women's version only in the drydown. The effervescent gorgeous opening notes of LB women is sorely missing in the male version. That's why i sold it. I don't think there is anything that smells like LB women. It's unique in my book.
I love the smell of Dolce and Gabanna Light Blue (women's version) - it is fantastic. So that is why I bought it and wear it. I personally did not want to settle for any substitute.

Yes, whenever I wear Versace Man Eau Fraîche at work I have to listen always the same comment from my female colleagues:”Your scent reminds me of Light Blue, it is just more masculine.”
Inasmuch as you already have Versace Man Eau Fraîche I suggest you to try Allure Homme Sport Cologne (www.basenotes.net/ID26128384.html.)
It seems to me that it shares some similarities with Light Blue.

the new Antonio Banderas " blue seduction" without doubt, this could be the male version, very synthetic but so close to a male base of light blue ... try it..
Is there something wrong with just wearing D&G Light Blue?
Scents aren't "male" or "female" - they're just scents. If you like it, wear it.
I cheapo version of this is 273 Indigo for women. There are some florals at first, but they fade quickly and it is mostly a peachy sandalwood after that.

Because millions of girls wear D&G Light Blue, I personally would not want to give off that vibe.
I completely disagree with the recommendation of XS BLACK. I would recommend you to try Star Walker by MONTBLANC. Also if you like to smell a greener and brighter version of Versace Fraiche, you should try Story by Paul Smith.

Thanks everyone. Here in my country I only can see Black XS. Already bought it & ok>> its last..
But i do not feel so much fresh notes in it. Sometimes the opening smells like peanut i think.. lol : D
For the moment I cant find "Antonio Banderas " blue seduction" here. Will try to smell it asap!
Haven't try Allure Homme Sport Cologne yet (but i think it is not last.. isn't it??)
Already got Starwalker Mont Blanc before. But it do not last on me.. : ( & I think it smells too sharp)
I think I agree the best thing is I should wear the real version of D & G Light Blue for Women..
For the moment i still wear Versace Man Eau Fraîche : )
I agree with just wearing light blue. I already have Eau Fraiche, and I find them too similar to have both in the wardrobe.. I wish I had light blue instead though!
