Like the attention-grabbing trailer to a boring movie...
Light Blue Forever puts all its eggs in one basket - the opening. Much has been said about the "photorealistic" grapefruit top note that commands attention in the opening. Unfortunately, once this punchy opening fades away in the first hour of spraying, followed by a limp middle, all that is left is an emaciated dry down that more accurately reflects the price point of Light Blue Forever. It's 10/10 for the opening and 2/10 for everything else.

I am stumped that this fragrance made it into the top 3 releases of 2021 of one of Fragrantica's expert contributors. According to her, this is better than YSL's La Nuit de L'homme Bleu Electrique which did not make it into her top 3. Surely not. Bleu Electrique is truly electrifying while Light Blue Forever is the emperor who has no clothes. I can only recommend Light Blue Forever if you love grapefruit and intend on carrying the bottle with you to refresh every two hours so that you do not have to experience that pointless dry down.

First grapefruit, later cucumber
The title really says it all. When I smelled the top note, I thought, "Dude how awesome is this?!" It's a grapefruit bomb but still has a certain tartness to it. It doesn't drift into the purely cloying at any point. Later, maritime notes come in, but they seem slightly synthetic to me, reminiscent of Nautica Voyage or Ralph Lauren Polo blue: cue cucumber. The cucumber also overpowers the grapefruit as it progresses, which I find very unfortunate. Through the synthetics, however, the fragrance has a good durability and sillage unusual for a fresh, summer fragrance.

Sillage and durability quite good, in the summer and sports of course stronger. I would like to test the fragrance times still on the cold days, which the Youtube Fragrance Dawq also recommends. Could also fit well. Overall, the fragrance is a super increase still of the Light Blue Intense For Men and well worth a purchase.

A Great Grapefruit...?
Perfection is usually boring. This must be noted with "Light Blue Pour Homme Forever" once again, which implements its grapefruit theme coherent and sparkling, but otherwise completely lacks the edge...

"Light Blue Pour Homme Forever" has a clear vision (unlike the many "cooks at the stove" might suggest) and delivers a casual grapefruit to bite into. From start to finish. From peel to core. Just the perfect balance of light synthetics and tremendous naturalness, of juice and flesh, of effervescence and refreshment, of vitamins and joie de vivre. Naturally a summer prince, naturally a sun worshipper in swim trunks with a classic cut. You have to climb well into the niche to find a better, more authentic and invigorating blood orange. At Atelier Cologne for sure. Otherwise, it's probably going to be thin. This is top notch, this is worthwhile, this alone almost lifts "Forever" into the green zone. And otherwise? Nothing. That's it. There's nothing more to come. Powder shot. No twists, no real character, no positive smut, barely any humanity, and zero surprise. Not even a real drydown can I detect. White, pure musk can always be said, but it's not enough. One theme, one note, one whole level of excitement short with me. Not the "light blue to beat all light blues" it's sometimes made out to be at the moment. But the top note entices and bucks, of course.

Flacon: used to and good color
Sillage: discreet but useful
Durability: weak to okay - 4-5 hours

Conclusion: blood orange or nothing at all! A motto that works out well for itself and its weight class. Compared to some niche grapefruits but absolutely feathers leaves and even somewhat bored. Monothematic midnight snack

Lemon? Orange? Or maybe lime?
Yes, very funny, I know. After hundreds of reviews both here and on YouTube, I come up with the surprise: it smells like grapefruit, and to me actually pretty much just grapefruit with occasional detours to grapefruit. Well, not quite was, associated with grapefruit are aquatic notes, as with all Light Blue Flankers really, and vetiver, absolutely not earthy and green but rather light and fresh, as is everything about this perfume. It's being given to my father for his birthday, as I rubbed it in his nose at the airport and thus managed to get him excited, both my parents, and both could agree that the scent is totally unisex. I agree, more unisex does not go, just as universal is such the age, theoretically could wear the from old to young everyone, he simply always refreshes. Hardly sweet, very citrusy, slightly bitter and very fresh: in my eyes and those of my family a very successful summer fragrance so, after some failed flankers finally a solid Light Blue again.

Durability: for a fresh, citrusy fragrance not bad, 6 hours, projection in the first 2 hours about 1-1.5m, then it sits closer to the skin. Well, with a summer fragrance you theoretically do not want a room-filling performance beast, if so, you can always re-spray the "grapefruit juice", the wasps will love you.

Flacon: So far the most beautiful Light Blue flacon, beautiful heavy glass, the golden writing on the blue bottle and the color-contrasting lid, just pretty. The velvety cover of the box, which can be found in some other Dolce & Gabbana perfumes is nice, although I get a toothache when touching these covers, for whatever reason :D

Price: I paid just under 50€ for 100ml, I find with regard to quality of the content and the flacon pretty fair, but in addition it should be said that I would never lay down big money for fresh, aquatic summer fragrances.

Conclusion: with Light Blue Intense the best Light Blue, brings what new to the Light Blue series, without being overly synthetic, which was a big problem with the previous flankers, at least for me. Solid fresh fragrance for everyone and -woman.

Light Blue for Summer
If you like the Sauvage style and you want a summer scent, this one could be ok.
It’s a fresh one liner : spiky grapefruit and sweet powdery woods.
Good for what it is, but what it is ain’t much ...

The grapefruit bomb!
Actually, I'm not a fan of the Light Blue fragrances and I also thought that will again so an additional fragrance in the series that no one needs. But this has me really convinced!
The fragrance starts with a really tangy grapefruit, almost carbonic acid like - it has something tingly. The opening is by far the best thing about the scent. I perceive it easily 2 hours, then comes the old familiar from the designer area - woody, fresh and citrus notes, but that in such a uniform mash. Nevertheless, the fragrance is in my opinion the best of the Light Blue series and for me personally also the BEST DESIGNER summer fragrance 2021.

The durability is definitely better than the old Light Blue fragrances! I perceive this fragrance easily 6-7H on my skin, which is for a Frischen Designer fragrance, really good!

Would I recommend this fragrance to people who also already have the old Light Blue fragrances?
Very clear yes! Just because of the performance and the horny Openings it is worth it.

Summer, sun, beach..
...that's what it reminds me of. A wonderfully fresh scent that is perfect for warm summer days. The grapefruit dominates here quite clearly, which is for my taste a welcome change from the countless citrusy scents. Drum I have him applied to the beach trip.

Durability I would describe as average: Applied at noon, I had to put on again in the afternoon, because the fragrance was as good as gone. Sillage is just as average - the co-drivers have perceived the fragrance in any case positively.

Whether the mere smell of grapefruit strengthens the self-confidence, I do not want to evaluate. However, I will certainly get me a bottle, after the sample has impressed me so.

Grapefruit for weight loss
Actually, I've been massively downsizing my perfume collection and didn't really want to buy anything new. Actually. But you know, you're never really dry, if you've ever started^^

A few days ago I declared war on my Corona pounds and started jogging again. Ok it still resembles more of an elephant with hip problems but the basic endurance will come back. I'll keep at it! That the diet must be changed is also clear.

Although grapefruit is not in season here, I love the taste and smell of this fruit enormously. So far I had not found a fragrance that would have adequately depicted this love. Until now. How did the hot summer days of years past go? Aqua the Gio? No, they all have. Cool Water? Yes you could again since no one really wears it anymore. But I'll even take good old Kenzo on that one. The citrusy scents like Dior Cologne and even the old D&G never really convinced me. Many smell too similar.

And then this perfect grapefruit scent comes out. Awesome! As if one had cut open a grapefruit. I also find the drydown beautiful and nothing "annoying" comes out.

And with that, this will be my perfect summer 2021 weight loss scent. Wearable on hot days. For jogging 5am before the office. Then in the office with bright summer outfit. And in the evening at the lake with colleagues.

It is one of those few summer fragrances that is NOT annoyingly noticeable but evokes compliments. There is nothing comparable and therefore the full score.

May the pounds fall off, with or without the grapefruit scent. But it is better with. Believe me ;-) I wish you all a healthy summer 2021!

Good enough to eat!
After I just my ordered over parfumo filling of "Light Blue pour Homme Forever" quasi leerersaug, this will probably be the first fragrance, of which I will then actually still the complete bottle Nachordern after the sample.

The stuff fits just wonderful in the current weather situation. The previously non-existent summer flashes so slowly on individual. Days through and then hits the same with full sultriness and sun. And there it is just wonderful to have this slightly bitter, incredibly grapefruity shimmer around and to be reminded again and again that such a fruity cocktail on ice cubes would be now really what delicious.

Unfortunately, "Light Blue pour Homme Forever" is with me - contrary to the other reviews here - somehow only of similar duration as the said cocktail in the stand bar. The great scent goes with me quite quickly in the direction of the skin and also remains there not too long. I'll try it here times with a base "Molecule 01", maybe I can drive so H and S something up.

But despite the durability: for me, an ideal summer fragrance, which will make the coming heat waves into something very tasty. Since I'm looking forward to it.

A ruby red explosion
This one opens with a VERY rich, very vibrant, juicy feeling grapefruit. It’s so full, I actually visualize a deep, almost maroon colored grapefruit, that’s sliced in half. It’s also very loud and resonant during this opening. The projection from the opening through to the 3 hour mark is a potent 3ft + radius. The sillage lingers quite proudly as well... a dark, semi sweet, juicy grapefruit trail that sits. Performance starts to fade at the 5hour mark, but it lasts as a skin scent for a full 7-8 hour average.

The grapefruit lasts and lasts and you slowly get a faint taste of the light blue base notes in the background as it dries down.

This one is getting a lot of hype, and I’m not going to say it doesn’t “deserve” it (yet), but as of now, having just paid full retail, it still has some “catching up” to do, to deserve the $110 I just shelled out at Macy’s.

It opens with an overly intense grapefruit peel, bitter and synthetic scent. In the drydown, the violet leaf give it a shaving foam vibe.

A very zesty opening and a juicy drydown. Good grapefruit note overall but a bit cloying. Don't detect any musk, vetiver or violet. 3/5
