Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue – Sunset in Salina will transport you to Paradise

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Most fragrances end up emulating the freshness and rejuvenation of spring. But it takes a master’s touch to embrace the heat and passion of an Italian island in the heart of summer and present it without overpowering the wearer.

Simply because Sunset in Salina is an aromatic concoction from the house of Dolce & Gabbana, it achieves this goal, effortlessly!

A mellower yet more intense reinterpretation of the citrusy 2001 edition Light Blue, Sunset in Salina is magic generously proportioned. Scour the market all you will but a fragrance of this intricacy and performance caliber doesn’t come in a larger flacon. As many die-hard Dolce & Gabbana enthusiasts have commented: “There is plenty to go around.”

The linger of the scent is appreciable. And the subtle alchemy of the notes changes in reaction to the body heat and personal chemistry of the wearer to move away from a trademark fragrance and into the territory of personal pleasure.

The very first spritz will captivate you. It paints an expansive image of the sun-kissed Aeolian Islands, lush with verdant greens, surrounded by frothing turquoise. It is a fragrance that can titillate your olfactory senses with the promise of unbridled heat and sophistication. The functional flacon is aesthetically appealing. But the real showstopper is the juice itself.

It beckons you; it enthralls you. The color is exquisite. If you have ever woken up with the gentle whispering of the seas in your ear, and the tingling warmth of the firmament distilled through glass windows on your face, you will understand my nostalgia. Sunset in Salina is luxurious. It makes the Mediterranean winds caress your skin and sets your heart pounding to the ancient rhythm of freedom and exhilaration.

The light of the languid setting sun with its promise of romance has been captured by Dolce and Gabbana to create this amazingly mature fragrance.

I love!

Despite its cult status, Light Blue was often panned by users for its sharp-edged notes. Sunset in Salina retains most of its heart but swipes the preponderance of citrus for an abundance of violet leaves and vine. The result is an intoxicating, heady blast of balmy sea air…fresh from the coast.

The underlying notes of Yellow Freesia, Orange Flower, and Jasmine provide excellent support to this edifice and gently transition into a robust base of Amber, Cedarwood and White Musk.

Sunset in Salina takes you high, higher than the fluffy white clouds where you have an amazing visual snapshot of everything that is exotic about the Mediterranean. It gradually descends the fragrant staircase, ending with a stroll in the lonely woods of Italy taking you back to some deep, secret corner of your soul where you enjoy your solitude and rule like the stylish maven you are!
