This is the first fragrance in a long time I have liked a lot.
The smell is light and airy, a little sweet but not overpowering. I notice people saying it doesn't last but that's actually one of the things I like about it, is that it fades and ends up being super subtle. I don't know about you but I live in an area where many places are scent-free, and I find that if I put on this fragrance it doesn't seem to affect people in a negative way. So many fragrances are so overpowering.
So thumbs up on this fragrance for me! Also I tend to react to a lot of fragrances, and not to this one!

I really like this really crisp, light, clean scent. It smell like clean laundry near the seaside.
It is great for everyday use but the staying power is a bit poor. This is something you don't expect with designer fragrances. The packaging is a bit cheap as well. The bottle dropped recently and the cover was smashed to bits.
I like this which I received it as gift but I'm unlikely repurchase when its finished.

Love this light scent! I always get compliments. The bottle lasts forever. There are some great dupes out there that last just as long. Perfumes de colur makes one called Capri breeze. Overall this is one of my faves!

One of my favorite scents! I wear it almost everyday because it is such a light and wearable scent. The scent smells crisp and citrus-like and it lasts throughout the day. I wear about 2 squirts when applying and it is just enough, not overbearing at all!

The best perfume reaction I ever got in public was while wearing Light Blue -- just a few weeks ago, at Books A Million. I walked to the register, and 3 SA's were standing there, and all started raving, "Ohhh, you smell SO GOOD! What are you wearing?". When I told them, they all had heard of the scent and nodded -- the guy said Light Blue for Men was also so good he couldn't even describe it.
I think Light Blue must be the #1 favorite in the area I live. Every time I ask a fragrance SA which are their best-sellers (Belk, Dillard, Macy's), Light Blue gets mentioned first.
This is a definite crowd-pleaser -- people love this. If you want the public at large to think you smell awesome, I suggest wearing Light Blue.
For me, it works best on the hottest days of summer -- smells to me like apple-lemonade in a tingling glass full of ice cubes -- crisp, sweet, cooling, and refreshing. I wear it in 80's-90's weather, but generally speaking, I much prefer Fall-Winter scents, rich gourmands, and soft musks or musky florals to anything fruity.

A classic, wearable scent. Like a sexy man mixed with fresh citrus. Very common though, so I have never bought the full size because I do not want to wear the same scent as everyone else. I heard this scent is going to change a little due to new fragrance ingredient regulations, so stock up if this scent is your signature!

One of my favourite fragrences by a long shot.
I like the fact that the scent is light, and- unlike most women's fragrances out there- doesn't reek of floral notes. The smell is very clean and summer-y (I bought it while on vacation so the smell always reminds me of warm weather and salty seas).
However, there are two pitfalls to this fragrance. The first one being that it is very expensive (not something you buy unless you are totally in love with the scent), and the second one being that the scent tends to get stronger with age. When I first purchased it, it was a much lighter scent than it is now (I purchases it roughly two years ago).
Still, though, my favourite scent. Especially good for people who dislike the traditional floral scents.

I personally like this perfume and its refreshing scent. But I'm no longer using it since everyone seems to have one. I don't want to smell just like everybody else.

This is the most overworn scent ever and it smells like prostitutes.

I'll be honest: I love this perfume. If I had it my way, it'd be my signature scent. The only thing keeping me from wearing it every day is the fact that it's probably the most over-worn perfume I can think of. Everyone seems to have it. Everyone seems to have a strong opinion on it. So much easier just to spray on something else.
What I don't think people realize is that body chemistry matters when choosing a perfume.In most cases, the way it smells on skin is completely different from the way it smells in the bottle. Because Light Blue is admittedly pretty great-smelling on a perfume strip and doesn't seem too heavy, I think a lot of people feel comfortable buying it without trying it out first. No. Don't do that. There's potential for disaster.
The thing with Light Blue is that it contains both fresh and sweet notes, and which one is more noticeable can't be predicted until you try it out. If the 'fresh' note is over-emphasized, you'll end up smelling like detergent or air freshener. If your body chemistry makes the sweet note stand out too much, you'll get that cloying scent that other people complain about in the comments. In my experience, people compliment me on my perfume, ask me what I'm wearing, and then don't believe that it's Light Blue. Seriously, that's how much the scent varies from person to person- it can be unrecognizable.
On me, Light Blue starts out smelling fresh, and in an hour mellows out to light, 'water-based' sweetness. It's nice and subtle and refreshing. The staying power is average to longer-than-average, and the scent doesn't evolve to something completely different at the end of the day.
Bottom line: As with every perfume, this isn't for everyone. Just because it's nice in the bottle doesn't mean that it will complement someone's unique body chemistry. If, however, it works for you, it's a great, uplifting and summery perfume.

The scent did not pick up on my skin, not even on those who were next to me. Such a shame, I liked this scent.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
I think this scent is lovely - balmy, lemony citrus with fresh green accords and some white floral thrown in for good measure. It totally conjures up thoughts of the coastal Italy, the beach, summer, etc for me. When I use this, I think of a perfect romantic vacation. :)
However, it has NO staying power whatsoever and that drives me crazy!
I have several other scents I like a lot better, and they stay on longer, so I wouldn't repurchase.

This is a great perfume, but it does have a slight alcoholic smell to it. It fades after a while and does smell wonderful!

I was really excited when I received a small sample of this perfume from Sephora, because I remembered I had smelled it a while ago and liked it. Boy was I wrong. The light scent is girly and very fresh but extremely strong (the give-you-a-headache type of strong). To me it doesn't smell very expensive if you know what I mean, and actually reminds me of one of those $15 Victoria's Secret sprays. Might be nice for summertime, but not worth the price tag.

Yes, it's pretty much tied with Viva La Juicy right now for "Most Obnoxiously Worn and Over Applied Fragrance by Everyone Trying to Be Classy or Just Wearing it Because it Was a Christmas Gift and I Feel Guilty For Not Wearing it" award...
But you know, I still happen to like it. I know that everywhere you go, you will always smell this, however it still smells just wonderful!
And guess what. I still wear it too. Maybe not in public so I won't be a hypocrite, but I really love wearing it around the house. It's just me, and Light Blue, and I'm in my happy little world imagining sand between my toes, fresh laundry, and a little bit of sunshine trailing wherever I go.

Looking for a citrus refreshing for my mom. This one is ageless. I love it also.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I have been using Light Blue as a summer perfume since I was 14! It is one of my absolute favourite fragrances ever – I adore the fresh citrus scent. It is so crisp, clean and refreshing, plus it always reminds me of the sea, fresh air and sunshine. It has decent lasting power for an eau de toilette, but I do find myself reapplying once or twice throughout the day.
