Hi there! Today’s post is another fragrance post – it’s about Dolce & Gabbana 3 L’Impératrice.
This is a fruity fragrance with rhubarb, red currant and kiwi (top notes), pink cyclamen and watermelon (heart notes), and musky notes, sandalwood and grapefruit wood (base notes).
I’ve been using this fragrance on and off for ages (5 years?). Every time I rediscover it, I fall in love with it. However, after a week or two I always need a break from it.
Whilst L’Impératrice is not a fragrance I can always wear, I think it’s one of the best fruity fragrances out there.
The beautiful mix of melon, kiwi and wood lingers for hours. The fragrance is fruity, yet grown-up, and thanks to the woody notes it’s not overly sweet; this makes it easy to distinguish L’Impératrice from random sugar water celebrity fragrances.
Whilst I probably won’t repurchase this fragrance, I would recommend Dolce & Gabbana 3 L’Impératrice to anyone who is looking for a scent that it both fruity and grown-up. L’Impératrice is available as 20 ml EdT splash, and 50 ml and 100 ml EdT spray. Prices vary greatly but the 100 ml bottle can often be found for under £30 (online).

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of my favourite summer fragrances, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. Yes, summer is over, but that won’t stop me from dousing myself in Light Blue for at least a few more weeks. 🙂
OK, Light Blue contains fragrant notes of lemon, apple and cedar (top notes), jasmin, bamboo and white rose (heart notes), and musk, cedar wood and amber (base notes).
In my opinion, Light Blue is all about lemons and cedar. I love the fresh, cool and crisp lemon scent with its dry cedar base. Light Blue is a modern classic that’s perfect for hot summer days.
I also love that Light Blue can be worn by men. I think it’s a perfect example of a true unisex fragrance, and it’s so much sexier than Light Blue For Men.
For as long as D&G continues to make Light Blue, I will definitely have it in my fragrance stash.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue is available as 25, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette spray. Prices vary from about £22 for the smallest bottle to £70 for the largest bottle.
