Beauty is incomplete without the right perfume.
Having a personal fragrance that just speaks to you is a privilege. I spent years trying to find a perfume that fit my taste. And luckily, in the past few years I have had the opportunity to smother myself in some of the best perfumes.
When I sniffed Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue, I was immediately blown away. The breezy, delicate and sparkling scent blew me through the woods into brunch by the beach.
The fresh notes that spark a fruity-floral scent, mixed with cedar feels like a gentle whiff of orange blossom.
You can of course check the notes by text, but I am just trying to tell you what it feels like to me. And so I am always stoked to find perfumes similar to Light Blue. Let me share them with you today!
7 Best Perfumes Similar to Light Blue
01# Versace Versense By Gianni Versace For Women Edt Spray
- Notes: Woody; Citrus; Spicy & White Floral
- Similar in Terms of: The Fresh and Musky Scent
As you know, Light Blue has a Citrus-y, woody and fresh and fruity fragrance. This perfume by Versace matches light blue in terms of that woodsy citrus notes, complimented by the aromatic musk.
I must say that this has a spicier base. But the powdery scent balances it to make it smell very similar to Light Blue. If you are looking for a women’s perfume that is like Light Blue, I recommend this!
You will love how it opens with a fruity green mandarin and bergamot note that settles with the aromatic musk. It mimics the sparkling citrus note of Light Blue, which I am sure you will notice. The cedar really pulls it all together in harmony, just like Light Blue!
02# Be Delicious by Donna Karan for Women
- Notes: Fruity Green; Citrus; Spicy & Fresh
- Similar in Terms of: This is more Fruity but has Similar Fresh Scent
This women’s fragrance by DKNY is a perfume dupe for Light Blue. There are slight differences as you would expect, but I personally find them negligible. You should try it yourself to decide if you agree with me or not!
It is the perfect scent for those who enjoy a fruity opening. This fragrance is incredibly fresh and resembles the breezy, fruity scent of Light Blue, but enhances it. The woody scent here is more subdued, and is slightly overpowered by the aquatic breeziness.
So you see, it is very similar to Light Blue, but does not have as strong of a woody, white musk base. If you enjoy a fresh, green aroma, this will be well loved by you!
03# Hermes Voyage D’hermes Unisex Eau de Parfum Spray
- Notes: Warm Spicy; Woody; Citrus; Fresh & Floral
- Similar in Terms of: Just as Fresh, but has a Stronger Woody Scent
This is a men’s fragrance that is a lot like Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue! Lust like Light Blue, this is a mixture of fresh and floral scent with an addition of aromatic green. The musky base is more subtle in this one, that I will say.
Regardless, the woody scent and the warm spicy notes really are enhanced in this one. This is why I believe this will be a popular perfume dupe for Light Blue.
Another similarity that I must mention- the citrus note! It is just as refreshing and sparkling in this one as in Light Blue!

- Notes: Aromatic; Citrus-y; Sweet
- Similar in Terms of: Aromatic Sweetness & Citrus Scent
Ever dreamed of a women’s fragrance like Light Blue, minus the white musk and woodsy scent? That is just my signature scent- fresh and sweet.
This is not entirely a floral fragrance to be completely honest. It just has a very subtle hint of woody muskiness that has a faint lingering effect. Even though it opens to grapefruit, lemon and orange fruity notes, the cinnamon and cedar are ever present.
I believe people who enjoy a fruity scent with a faint presence of woody and musky scents will love this. I do recommend this perfume as a Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue dupe!
05# GIORGIO ARMANI Acqua Di Gioia Eau de Parfum Spray
- Notes: Aromatic; Citrus; Sweet Vanilla; Floral
- Similar in Terms of: Similar Notes, Just More Enhanced
This EDP is like Light Blue EAU Intense. The reason behind my claim is because this is just a more intense dupe for Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. The notes are similar, except more enhanced. This is why it made the list for perfumes similar to Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue!
The breezy fresh scent of this EDP has lovely notes of dewy peony, aquatic jasmine and pink pepper. This creates a nice balance of floral and spicy. Added to that, the cedar and sweet vanilla concoct a brilliant sweet woodiness.

Now, a masculine fragrance for those who like fruity and spicy accords! The fresh notes of lemon allow a juicy opening of citrus. The cinnamon and black cardamom, among others, create a spicy middle note that adds a tinge of warmth.
It is the base notes that truly make an impression! Consisting of black amber and patchouli in the base that mix with Brazilian rosewood to create a strong woodsy scent. If you are looking for similar perfumes to Light Blue with a strong woody effect, pick this!
07# Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne

The scent that smells like the longing of the Mariner’s wife. A melancholic piece of freshness, this one.
This perfume is a dupe for Light Blue as it does have a strong citrus-y presence backed up by floral notes. There is also the presence of grapefruit that adds a plush richness. The spicy notes are toned down, and what replaces the woody musk is an intense aquatic fragrance.
The sea salt adds a defining touch of saltiness that just makes it so much better. This, in my opinion, is a unisex fragrance. It smells like the ocean! If this sounds like something you would love, try it!
