Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue EDT for Women Review

Some people have a signature fragrance that becomes a part of their personality while others have deodorants. D&G Light Blue could have been my signature fragrance if I could just get myself to buy bottle after bottle. My main problem is that I like buying things on discount and I absolutely do not consider anything less than 50% off as a discount.

D&G Light Blue Review
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue for Women

My bottle of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue was a gift from a friend and is almost a decade old. Initially, I decided it would be opened and used on special occasions, but I didn't think any event was worthy of the bottle for a very long time.Eventually, I started using and it was love at the first whiff.

About D&G Light Blue:
Invigorating Sicilian cedar melds with the crisp vibrancy of apple and the guileless charm of the bluebell, to evoke the essence of a South Italian summer.
The freshness of bamboo nestles amid a glorious feminine bouquet of decadent jasmine and delicate white rose.
Redolent citron wood is entwined with voluptuous amber and a suggestive caress of musk.

My Experience:
I love the fresh and fruity smell of Light Blue. It is perfect for a hot Indian summer day and lasts from morning till evening without re-use. It is perfect for the workplace too as it manages to strike the fine balance between being strong enough, but not strong enough to kick in anyone's allergies. Usually, the top notes are very strong and one has to wait for the fragrance to settle before making up your mind. However, Light Blue smoothly lifts you up and settles you into an envelope of amber and musk.

D&G Light Blue is just a perfect fragrance. I know the world is crazy about #5, but I couldn't see what all the hoopla was about. The price tag of this fragrance might be the only deal-breaker.

The bottle is made of thick glass so, you can carry it around. I do try to keep the bottle inside the velvet box because prevention is better than buying a new bottle.

Verdict: 10/10 Love Love Love 

On a parting note, I have ordered my second bottle of my first love because we live only once and I don't have to save as I am sure my future kids will be able to fend for themselves.

Bath & Body Works Be Enchanted Shower Gel Review

I am a huge Bath & Body Works fan. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE their products. If they are running a deal, I usually buy way more than I need. Usually, the intention is that I will gift 'some' of the stuff to friends and family, but I end up just hoarding.

I am sure I have more BBW things than those being sold on the Indian online shopping scene. Now, Be Enchanted Shower Gel was a gift and I had been saving it for...I don't know what. I finally decided that it was time to start using it and here we are.

The Little Door, Pune

In general, the problem with going out in Pune is that you either go out to eat or you go out to drink. If you want to do both at the same place, you will be left with limited number of places, especially if you are a vegetarian!Usually, I am offered a choice between Paneer and you know, Paneer.

I was pleasantly surprised when at The Little Door-Pune, I was offered amazing variety. For the non-vegetarians, you have a wider menu to choose from(literally).If your agenda is to drink and eat and drink some more, this is the place! Their food menu is varied and the bar menu is even bigger. I'd suggest trying out Vol Au Vents, Cottage Cheese Ratatouille, Lambonioni, Popper Pops and Rum Drum. The Drunk'essert aka Rum Drum deserves a special mention for making alcohol taste heavenly.
