Light Blue Eau de Toilette
3.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Smells like sweet apple shampoo, sharp citrus, and pencil shavings. The apple has a hint of celery that reminds me of Koto Hello Kitty perfume. Nice but the apple smells a bit juvenile and there is a musty bitter undertone that doesn't feel as clean as the rest of the fragrance. A really light, and short lived fragrance, with the performance of a a body spray or scented soap. Cheap packaging, blue fuzzy box gets dirty quickly. Takes alot of force to get the cap off. Overpriced, you're paying for the name, not the quality. I prefer Moschino Cheap & Chic I Love Love, which has a brighter, sharper citrusy note, and lasts way longer. Top Notes - Granny smith apple, Sicilian cedar, Bluebells Heart Notes - Jasmine, White rose, Bamboo Base notes - Cedarwood, Amber, Musk

I must admit, I am surprised by the 3 lippy average rating on here. I got curious about this one because I had a sample of the original Light Blue and while I found it really lovely on initial spray, it faded ridiculously quickly. I got two hours wear out of it at most. However, I was fortunate enough to get a sample of Eau Intense in last year's Sephora holiday perfume sampler kit, and I ended up buying it a few weeks ago because I loved it so much. Using Fragrantica to compare the notes between the OG and Eau Intense, there are a few differences and the biggest on my skin is a more pronounced slightly woodier and musky dry-down on Eau Intense that I didn't get with the original, probably because the scent had fizzled out so quickly. There's also bamboo for the OG that I don't see for Eau Intense, although that is a very light note and doesn't make that much of a difference. Lemon and green apple, which I'm crazy for, are the top notes for both of them. The OG claims to have jasmine, white rose, and amber, none of which I smell. I'm thinking the cedar in the OG's top and bottom notes is probably weaker compared to the stronger amberwood in Eau Intense's bottom notes. The initial blast is very citrusy and fresh, although I wouldn't call it aggressively astringent or soapy. I don't get the comparison to cleaning products on my skin. I really do love the opening. The lemon and apple come through strongly and beautifully. Within an hour, it settles to a clean, bright, musky lemon, and stays that way for hours. With the OG, I just smell the lemon and the apple with a hint of floral, but this develops into something more. It lasts for about 6 hours on my skin, far above and beyond the previous's wear time. The sillage is pretty average. It makes me happy to smell it, a very upbeat fragrance. If you do not like citrus, please stay AWAY, because it is heavy on the lemon, which again is not a problem for me! This is the perfect perfume to wear post-shower or on a hot day. My biggest gripe with Light Blue Eau Intense is the packaging. It looks just like the original's bottle but with a slightly darker coloring and cap. I find it very boring looking, and I'm not a fan of the font either - it's really unappealing! I have also had issues with the cap since only a few hours after buying it. It won't "click" on the sprayer properly and, as a result, it moves around and pops off frequently. I also wish they made rollerballs of this because I love the smell so much and it'd be handy to put in my purse, which I can't do with my bottle due to the cap issue. More than likely I'll just pick up a rollerball of the original, but I'd prefer Eau Intense.

I’ve never owned the original Light Blue so I can’t comment on the longevity, but have smelled it a thousand times and can recognize it instantly. Now that I own the intense version, I can’t help but think that it’s a bit too cloying for me especially during the heat waves. But the original Light Blue was the type of fragrance that just glistened when worn during that type of weather. Longevity is okay for the intense, I still smell it on me after a few hours and I don’t feel as if I need to reapply. But I don’t get the same clean and refreshing scent as I got with the original. I thought this was going to be a safe blind buy, but I’ll have to pass on this.
