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.
