Its most recognizable scent is the massively successful Light Blue, but the brand has a plethora of scents to choose from, including a handful of flankers of its signature scents and some classic favorites that shouldn’t be missed. Their scents are inspired by the sights, sounds and smells of their native Italy, including the brilliance of the Amalfi Coast, the shimmering Mediterranean Sea and the lemon groves of Sicily.

You can’t write a list of the best Dolce & Gabbana scents without starting with Light Blue Eau de Toilette, the brand’s most enduring and iconic fruity floral fragrance. You’ve definitely smelled it countless times before; Light Blue has been a bestseller since its 2001 release. The fragrance itself was inspired by a day on the Mediterranean: soaking up the sun, sipping a fruity cocktail, leisurely boating across the crystal blue ocean. It’s the scent of endless summer.

The bottle looks sleek and elegant, but the scent itself is juicy and vibrant. L’Imperatrice was released as part of a five-scent collection inspired by tarot cards and is a fruity aquatic floral with a bright and zesty pink pepper, kiwi and rhubarb opening. L’Imperatrice isn’t sticky sweet, though; watermelon adds a light aquatic edge, and a base of musk and sandalwood is the perfect base for those bubbly top notes.

Travel to the scenic Sicilian countryside every time you apply Dolce Eau de Parfum, a gorgeous floral fragrance for women.
