Dolce & Gabbana Beauty: Italian Zest, a limited edition Eau de Toilette

Brightened with lavish essences of Italian best quality citruses harvested in flourishing fields – lemon for her, bergamot for him – the Italian Zest Limited Edition offers a rich olfactive experience that evokes their unique fizzy smell.
As Summer brings vibrant colors and life to Capri, the island welcomes a dazzling atmosphere filled with joy, love and sensuality. Light Blue Italian Zest is an invitation to make Summer sparkle and zesty.

LIGHT BLUE ITALIAN ZEST
In this Summer’s variation, perfumer Olivier Cresp splashes a generous dose of tangy Calabrian lemon on Light Blue’s fruity floral signature. Extracted from hand-harvested “limoni primofiore”, lemons that grown from the tree’s first bloom and considered the very best quality due to their more intense taste.
Both the zest and pulp are sensitive to the heat and need to be squeezed according to an ancestral cold pressing technique called sfumatrice, to produce a true-to-nature
essence with gourmand facets.
Brightened by the tangy citrus, Light Blue’s signature Sicilian cedar and Granny Smith apple top notes become even fruitier and juicier. The glowing white rose and jasmine petal heart is more radiant than ever. Its trail of ambery notes and warm musks becomes more lustrous. A new facet of Mediterranean femininity is unveiled with a twist of Italian Zest.


LIGHT BLUE ITALIAN ZEST POUR HOMME
Perfumer Alberto Morillas reinvents Light Blue Pour Homme with an overdose of fresh bergamot, a richly resonant citrus essence with facets of pepper, musk and oak.
Shaped like a small yellow orange, Citrus bergamia is exclusively grown in Calabria. The essential oil is obtained by peeling the fruit, then cold-pressing the peel to protect its complex, delicate aromas.
In Italian Zest, a pure explosion of fresh bergamot boosts Light Blue Pour Homme’s signature contrast of coolness and sensuality. Brightening the top notes chilled cocktail
of grapefruit and mandarin, the pepper and juniper facets add a spicy tang to the rosemary and rosewood of the heart notes. By contrast, the vibrant incense and musks of the
drydown feel even more potent.

THE PACKAGING
Bright yellow lemon zest lends its sunny color to the cap and juices. The sky-blue boxes are adorned with a retro and playful design and an illustration of the Faraglioni in the background.

THE ICONIC LIGHT BLUE AND LIGHT BLUE POUR HOMME
As fresh as a dive into the sea, Light Blue is the quintessence of joy of life and seduction. Sicilian cedar melds with the crisp vibrancy of the Granny Smith apple and the guileless charm of the bluebell. The scents of bamboo blend with a bouquet of jasmine and delicate white rose. Citron wood is entwined with amber and musk. Fruity floral, it reflects feminine women. The essence of Light Blue Pour Homme captures the freshness and sensual Mediterranean Summer.
A woody spicy fragrance offering a masculine blend with juniper and bergamot combination and the stimulating flavor of grapefruit and fleshy Sicilian mandarin.
At the heart, the aromatic rosemary, the subtle spice of Sichuan pepper are tempered by voluptuous rosewood. An understated blend of musk wood, incense and oak moss that
together gently establish this signature scent.
