Very Different Than The Other O'driu Releases To Date -- Vanilla And Lemongrass...
Leva is definitely a departure from what one expects from the house of O'driu based on most of their other offerings. It opens on skin with just the faintest hint of grapefruit and olive, before quickly featuring a beautiful lemongrass note at the scent's heart, sweetened by a natural vanilla that is not of the powdery variety. The lemongrass and vanilla tandem remain into the base notes, only sweetening a tad more via a minor infusion of tonka bean and maybe even a hint of sandalwood. Apart from the very short-lived top notes, Leva is quite linear to my nose. Projection and longevity were both below average.

I was definitely surprised at the subtlety of Leva. All of the other O'driu scents I have smelled have not been subtle offerings, featuring spice and rose combinations that can be quite potent indeed. Here, Pregoni lets the Lemongrass and vanilla stay as almost a skin scent, all notes well-blended and quite subdued throughout. Leva is classy, very accessible and extremely pleasant smelling (I should mention I am a big lemongrass fan). I do feel that Leva may be a bit *too* subtle and linear in this case, as at the price point O'driu scents go for, the purchaser almost expects something extraordinary, and while a very good scent, I don't think I would put Leva in that category. Recommended to try for certain, but at its relatively high price point I can't recommend a purchase. 3 to 3.5 stars out of 5.
