Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue - Dreaming in Portofino and Living Stromboli Limited Edition! Xx

Dreaming in Portofino and Living Stromboli

At the heart of the Italian Riviera lay two havens of 
natural beauty and glamorous style; 
Portofino and Stromboli are locations 
intrinsic to the illustrious Dolce and Gabbana heritage. 

These are limited editions of Light Blue - 
with matt crystal white lids on the bottles for
a fresh new look to
the Dolce and Gabbana iconic Summer fragrances
“Dreaming in Portofino” for Women, 
and “Living Stromboli” for Men.

 They bring both the sensuality of nature, 
and the glamour of the Italian coast to life.

These jewel destinations are locked in timeless perfection, 
drawing pleasure-seeking couples who dream to live the Mediterranean life: 
sailing, swimming, sunbathing, eating, drinking and loving.
These unique places provide the ultimate Mediterranean escape 
for those who seek a never-ending moment
 immersed in the raw beauty of land and sea.

In Portofino, faded pastel houses line the quay 
while yachts slowly glide in the inky blue waters.

“Going to Portofino is like entering a dream world” says Domenico Dolce. 
“For us, Portofino is a place where we can get 
away from the turmoil of our city life, 
relax, have fun and enjoy the beauty of its rocky and floral landscape.” 
adds Stefano Gabbana. 
“The scent of the air, the view and the magnificence of the place are unique.”

Dreaming in Portofino:
Top notes of sun-kissed Litchi and musky Ambrette Seed sensuously meld into 
rich floral tones of creamy Iris and heady Osmanthus. 
Resinous Amber and woody Patchouli linger, 
leaving behind a trace of delicate velvet aroma, 
imprinting an intoxicating memory of golden 
moments spent in timeless contemplation.

Anna Jagodzinska stars with David Gandy in Mario Testino’s 
romantic interlude featuring the lovers reclining in a boat, 
the dazzling blue water all around, 
the true depiction of Dreaming in Portofino.
 It’s a place we all return to in our dreams. 

“It felt so romantic, just being there on the sea, 
in the sun – just the two of us,” says Anna. 
The campaign continues with David and Anna 
together on their voyage thorough the Mediterranean.

The island of Stromboli, off the north coast of Sicily, 
is a place of dreams, 

with its dramatic volcanic landscape baked by the Mediterranean sun.

“We love Stromboli,” says Domenico Dolce, 
“The omnipresence of the active volcano and the dark, 
rocks that are typical of the island.” 
“You arrive by boat from Sicily and the island looms above you, 
with villages clinging to the slopes,” adds Stefano Gabbana. 
“The power of nature really takes your breath away.”

Living Stromboli:
Fusing freshness and sensuality, this innovative aquatic mineral 
eau de toilette is classified as ‘Woody Water’. 
Pure, powerful and intensely masculine, 
refreshing top notes of Citrus and Pink Pepper 
segue into crisp aquatic tones heightened by the clarity of Geranium. 
Smoky Amber with woody Patchouli and 
mossy Vetyver provide lasting resonance.

We love that iconic image of David Gandy shot by Mario Testino, 
reclining on a boat surrounded by Mediterranean waters,
he introduces us to the world of Dolce and Gabbana’s Living in Stromboli. 

“For me, Light Blue is about escaping with someone you love, 
to a place and time that becomes fixed in your memory forever,
 a magical moment,” says David.

Until next time! Xx
