  • I love duty free at the airport and thatís a big part of the fun for me picking a perfume.
    Last year I got a fragrance Dolce and Gabbana light blue Italian zest but it was limited edition and itís not available now (well not anywhere that I have seen).
    Iíd LOVE that to take with me as my daily fragrance (and take a heavier one for nights if we do any nights out).
    So Iím wondering if anyone can recommend anything similar.
    They have brought a new one out and I think itís called ďlight blue sunĒ and itís described as zesty so if they have that at the airport Iíll possibly get that.
    But just wondering
    A) anyone smelt this and know if it is zesty and fresh/smells anything like the Italian zest

    B) anyone can recommend anything fresh like that with a nice zesty fragrance (not DKNY I find those apple ones really overpowering).

    Is this the one you were looking for?

    Yes thatís the one but I want to buy at airport so wondering if itís still available.
    You canít get it in Boots and Debenhams anymore only on these fragrance sites and often quite a lot more expensive than in the shops.
    Just wondering if anyone has seen this or the sun one in duty free.

  • I'm not really a huge perfume/fragrance person, but one of the few ones I really like is the L'Occitane Verbena and Citrus Verbena fragrances... very light and summery in my opinion!

    Since you're heading back to the magic - go have a look at the Laila and Frozen perfumes at Epcot Norway too! They were quite nice and well, there's the unique factor... Not duty free though!

    Can I? Iíve searched shops in the terminal before but dint know how to find what they actually stock 🤔

    Thanks for the replies.

    I absolutely LOVE perfume and itís my special tradition to treat myself at the airport. Over the years Iíve bought stuff Iíve not liked so Iím trying to do some forward planning 😂😂

  • So thankyou ClaireNJ Iíve just searched my airport duty free. So CLICK AND COLLECT only - does that mean the perfume is only available to CLICK AND COLLECT or is it just the price?
    Thing is they gave the light blue sun but Iíve not smelt it yet - wanted to smell it before I purchased so couldnít click and collect.

  • Was going to say go to your nearest Debenhams or Perfume shop to smell it like I do, but if they donít stock it then thatís no good
    Or maybe donít do Click & Collect & take a chance theyíve got it in when you go so you can have a spray before you buy
    Good luck X
    Whoops just read can only do Click & Collect
    Iíd just take a chance & buy it then, youíre on holiday after all

    Also it does sound like the one you want might be discontinued, maybe drop them an email D&G, I did this with Stella McCartney when I could no longer find my fav & they did confirm that it was no longer available

    So does CLICK AND COLLECT mean you can actually only get it by CLICK AND COLLECT or is the just that you can only get the offer price click and collect? Iíve not seen it in Boots or Debenhams. For some reason our Debenhams has stopped stocking D&G.

    Iím going to just wait and see and have a sniff at the airport. If push comes to shove Iíll just buy the original Light blue cos thatís nice and fresh or my favourite perfume.
