SOTD: Light Blue


It's apple season, with all my complaining of the heat in the last couple of weeks, all the sudden on Friday I could smell and feel Autumn in the air, and that wonderful feeling has not stopped. My grandmother for years has been volunteering at the Gerrin Heirloom Apple Orchard, I went up their years ago as a child, and today I am visiting again to go apple harvesting. I can't wait; in honor of this occasion I am going with Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue, although consistently referenced as a summer fragrance, I find that I prefer this as an autumn fragrance. The gentle creamy apple note with hints of bergamot and amber, blooms so much better in autumn weather.

Ooh I love Light Blue- and how apropos for apple harvesting! As a kid my parents would take me to apple valley to pick apples and buy cider. My favorite, though, is a well baked apple pie. Nothing smells like autumn more to me. Have fun!

Apple harvesting sounds wonderful. I hope you hve a great time. Light Blue is a great choice- and you're right great for Autumn although I hadn't thought of it before.

Hope you have a very good time!
It's nothing like autumn here yet, although we had some rain (the almost tropical kind though....)

Daily, nothing quite like apple pie, but my real love is apple cake.

Rose, Try Light Blue on a crisp blue sky Autumn day; it's perfect!
