A new, steamy take on a clas­sic scent pro­vides a fra­grance per­fectly suited for Mi­ami.

If you didn’t think Mi­ami could get any hot­ter, think again. Dolce & Gab­bana is turn­ing up the heat with Light Blue Eau In­tense and Light Blue Eau In­tense Pour Homme, the lat­est blends to join its decades-old fra­grance col­lec­tion, ac­com­pa­nied by a sexy ad cam­paign star­ring mod­els David Gandy and Bianca Balti and shot by leg­endary pho­tog­ra­pher Mario Testino.

If the brand’s orig­i­nal scents were fit for a day at the beach, Light Blue Eau In­tense (100 ml. for $135), cre­ated by mas­ter per­fumer Olivier Cresp, and Light Blue Eau In­tense Pour Homme (100 ml. for $110), by mas­ter per­fumer Al­berto Mo­ril­las, are what you spritz on when the sun goes down. For the fem­i­nine ren­di­tion, the scents of fresh lemon and Granny Smith ap­ples are blended with bright jas­mine and marigold, then fin­ished with leath­ery cedar­wood and skin­like musks. “I tried to trans­late this idea of a sen­sual skin in a more in­tense way,” says Cresp.

For men, Mo­ril­las cre­ated a cock­tail of en­er­giz­ing man­darin and grape­fruit, paired with ju­niper and a salty, aquatic ac­cord, sim­i­larly in­ten­si­fied with am­ber woods and musks. Says Mo­ril­las, “The key idea was to cre­ate a con­cen­trate of mas­cu­line fresh­ness.” Sephora, 721 Collins Ave., Mi­ami Beach, 305-532-0904; sephora.com

“We’re like a big fam­ily,” says model David Gandy (ABOƯE, with Bianca Balti). “We’ve known each other for so many years, and that’s my fa­vorite part of the shoot.” BELOƯ: Mario Testino shoot­ing the Dolce & Gab­bana cam­paign in Capri with Balti and Gandy. “He’s so much fun to work with,” says Balti about Testino, “so bub­bly.”
