Dolce&Gabbana Fragrances – Light Blue Escape to Panarea & Discover Vulcano





The Aeolian islands are small pieces of Paradise scattered in front of Sicily, famed for its rugged yet hospitable volcanic landscape. This striking panorama, stretching from Panarea to Vulcano, is the perfect setting for vibrant Mediterranean summer nights, and the inspiration for two new limited edition scents from Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue: Escape to Panarea for women andDiscover Vulcano for men.


The scents depict a journey of two lovers, beginning in Panarea. Here, the Basiluzzo islet emerges from the deep blue sea. With its welcoming warm waters and streets brimming with life, this small port is a magic place for the free spirited. Our lovers bask in the island’s life, strolling barefoot from the sun soaked day through to the open air parties of the night.


The journey continues as they emerge from the crowds, taking sail to Vulcano in exploration of its long kept secrets of nature and mythology. They move from the slopes of Vulcano’s crater,to the black sands of its beach set, playing out their love affair against its distinctive rocky backdrop.

“Panarea is the island of love. Here, summer nights are lit by a thousand candles, spent on terraces overlooking the glittering blue waters, with the feeling that you are suspended in time, between the sea and the stars.” Stefano Gabbana.


“When you walk on the crater of Vulcano, you feel the power of nature and its pulsating and profound intensity, even though it is dormant for now.It is not just a vacation on a breathtakingly beautiful island, but a journey full of great discoveries.” Domenico Dolce.

The fragrances

Enticing and penetrating, these scents evoke the warm caress of the wind, the sea on Mediterranean nights and the scent of sun-kissed skin in the evening. Citrus tones blend with notes of Amber and Musk, creating an accord that brims with joyful romance.
