He's really all right
This fragrance is a true evergreen among the well known men's summer designers. It is probably familiar to a large number of people - and I don't just mean members of this community - even if they can't always directly associate it with a name and label. Maybe it's even one of those fragrances to which almost every man or woman would say: "I know that one, or at least I've smelled it before". The high degree of recognition, however, cannot be transferred one-to-one to the pleasantness. It may happen more often with this fragrance than with others that it is classified as too common, too inflationary, too shower gel-like and wrongly as too trivial. I would contradict then nevertheless quite gladly.
All these statements I can understand, because just a few weeks ago I felt similar. Meanwhile, however, I can say that D&G light blue eau intense pour homme (DGlbeiph) is rock solid and just right. I'm a bit reluctant to say "you can't go wrong with this" because I think it depends too much on the person wearing the fragrance. From that point of view, someone can certainly destroy a fragrance, e.g. by their behaviour, or create such negative associations that people will automatically give it a wide berth. DGlbeiph could well be such a person due to its popularity. In this respect, one can go wrong with this fragrance in particular. For example, if the achievement of compliments is high on the agenda or if extravagance is to be worn for show.
Much more, this fragrance is a kind of anti-hero, because it is certainly not niche. Neither is it extraordinary or flashy. Because of its exuberant maritime freshness, it is also almost impossible to overdose on. Its astringency doesn't flaunt anything, nor does it put anything particularly shiny in place. Its durability and sillage are really good and yet it remains as it is: undisguised, linear, uncompromising and honest.
Due to the wide range of wearers DGlbeiph does not represent a fragrance that makes you stand out from a crowd just because of the scent. But who wears it consciously and gladly, which takes possibly to him, because he just may not appear ambitious, overly noble or distinguished and in this respect does not try to exaggerate something. Certainly not. He symbolizes a fine and sympathetic sublimity, which, however, is not perceived as such.
For me, the choice of this fragrance is a conscious decision against others. Be it for pragmatic, functional or the reasons listed above. However, he always radiates a certain basic attitude, a basis and an understanding of a fragrance. Simple and easy but therefore not trivial or simple-minded.
