Il Libro Degli Agrumi : Boccioli di Limone by Monotheme

This is a lovely tart lemon fragrance that reminds me strongly of a lemon Life Saver candy. It's linear and also quite fleeting for an eau de toilette, but at $48 for 100ml, you can reapply frequently. The benchmark lemon fragrance for me in Profumum Aqua Viva, and for me Boccioli di Limone falls short, hence the neutral rating.

Luci Ed Ombre by Masque

As a jasmine/tuberose/incense/spice lover, I thought this fragrance would become a "must have" immediately. I am so glad I did not blind-buy it from the notes! On me, it opens with the smell of coconut, to which jasmine is added after a minute or so. Then, the tuberose chimes in, but here it smells overwhelmingly of rubber bands. Although the house calls this a unisex scent, I think it skews feminine. Sillage is minimal and longevity is 4-5 hours.

On someone else, this might be ravishing, as the quality of the ingredients appears to be good, but on me it just doesn't work.
