    Question Light blue sun D&G release + performance

    375x500.53944.jpg

    Dear Fumeheads,

    Does one of you guys know when this fragrance will be released in the EU / Netherlands?

    Secondly, it has been already released in the US: Anybody had a chance to try this flanker out? If so, how is the performance, sillage in comparison with the Intense version?

    Thanks for y'all replies.

    With regards.

    Smelled this today at Nordstrom, it is really impressive. Nearly bought it right there but they only had the 4.2oz and that’s way more than I’ll need. Will get the 2.5oz when they get it, assuming performance is acceptable.

    When will this be released in Europe? And does it smell like the 'intense' version? Are there similarities?

    I am not sure about release in Europe. I have only smelled the intense version once, but I preferred this new, "Sun" version. It has a bit more of a fruity accord, which I really like in a warm weather fragrance. This is the only Light Blue I'm interested in buying, I'll put it that way.

    Need to check this out next time at Nordstrom. Thanks for the info.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Please do. Excited to see your thoughts and curious to see how this one performs. Reviewers are speaking highly of it performance wise, but I always feel it's beneficial to hear from others on that as well when possible.

    I only got the chance to smell it on a paper strip, but it was really good.

    Redolessence, BFL, and Gentscents, to name a few have reviewed it already. Though it's hard to determine the honesty of reviews on products that were probably given to them free, so I take Youtube reviewers reviews of brand new releases with a grain of salt, and wait for the BN reviews.

    Exactly. It's hard to know who is telling the truth and who isn't. I typically take Redolessence and BFL with a big grain of salt, but Gentscents is usually trustworthy from my experience. I'll check his review out.

    I don't know they have given negatives on many fragrances I've watched them review, I don't feel there's anything peculiar going on there.

    I think Ashton mentioned tryin it somewhere or something, I can't recall but overall every snippet I've read and watched seems very positive

    So I got my bottle and I absolutely love it. It fits the Sun name perfectly. This has such a beautiful zestiness to it that is top notch, you get that frozen grapefruit and bergamot, a spiciness of ginger subtly and then a touch of aquatic notes... It is truly summer in a bottle. I can't wait to take to the beach with me and wear it on days when hanging around my pool.

    I am absolutely love it. Its fairly strong as well, my wife can smell it on me from a distance after only a few sprays and Im betting it'll have great performance, I can mention more on that later.

    But the juice itself for me is one of my absolute recent favorites. I can't stop smelling myself lol

    Anything you can compare it to?

    Good question, I really can't to be honest. I have only about 70 to bottles so my collection while decent probably isn't anywhere near others, but out of everything I have it's fairly incomparable.

    What I love is that it's a mix of fresh and cool spiciness. It definitely doesn't have any type of coconut or sun lotion smell to it as some may have speculated, just a beautiful aquatic with an icy grapefruit, spicy ginger, bergamot, and maybe like a hint of mint... Very nice overall.

    For 88 bucks getting a 4.2 of this I'm super happy

    This is great to know. It's over 100 degrees here six months a year, so I am constantly in need of great warm weather fragrances. I am going to pick a bottle of this up this week. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    Regarding OP’s second question, having tested this at Macy’s last week, I found performance excellent. Didn’t get much coconut. I’ve seen reviews mention a “suntan” vibe. I didn’t get that either, but liked the fragrance quite a bit. Would be an easy summer wear.

    I own the original, but haven’t found the flankers I’ve tried different enough to warrant a purchase. This one is interesting. Granted this is only my first impression, but it seems to take the original and update it with a sort of “bleu” vibe. Less watery-opaque and more spicy-zesty, if that makes any sense. The drydown is fine, if a bit uninspiring.

    I'm sort of thinking it might smell like Sander Sun Men. They use "sun accords" or something to mimic what it sounds like you may be smelling, as well as what Netty is describing.

    I won't be blind buying it until I see more reviews from more people, but I may seek out a sample on Ebay soon. I have found the entire Light Blue Summer flanker line to be very lackluster.

    You could definitely wear it at the office but this is more of a fun in the sun type scent, I mean if you try to match up scents with activities. But as for just a great scent that isn't to loud for an office, I think it can definitely work
