Lemonheads to LA Beaches
Mouth watering "Lemonhead" candy on top, causing my mouth to pucker as I sniff my arm. The initial burst gives way to a vibrant electric lemon zest with a spearmint/herbal green twist. This scent is light sillage, not like Pledge lemon oil, more like lemonade/Limonata over ice all shiny and stay simple and citrusy clean. After about 15 minutes I detect a little cosmetic rose note. This dries down to a subtle flowery unsweetened concoction. In summary: Malibu Lemon Blossom is a righteous tasty, albeit brief scent lasting 1-2 hours on me. But I can not protest too much; it is as relaxing as a stroll down Venice Beach after a long plane ride from the gritty and bitter gray urban jungle of New York city. Malibu Lemon Blossom wants you to meditate on the cool seabreeze, sun and the seagulls for awhile, warm you bones and bronze your skin and just be at one with the world. This is a fragrance that just wants to chill, to hang loose and soak up the good vibes while making you feel good, Dude! Everything is gonna be alright, because it comes in a solid and travel roller format for your beach bag- so you can just mellow out and get sand between your toes...its all good!

Ferrara Pan Lemonheads--and That's a Good Thing
I've tried a few offerings from the house of Pacifica, as I am always interested in perfumes which boast blends comprising primarily natural and essential oils. So far, I've been impressed, so I decided to blind buy a small bottle of MALIBU BLOSSOM, since I'm always game for a fresh citrus scent.

This particular composition smells upon spritzing a lot like Ferrara Pan Lemonheads, small bright yellow spherical candies with a slightly chewy outer coating. Lemonheads proudly claim on every package to be “a fat-free food” and they are truly addicting: I've consumed something like a ton over the course of my life. Sometimes I stock up on Lemonheads, filling large mason jars (preferably with clamps) on display, since I love the sight of this candy almost as much as I love the taste! So, the only question remaining is: do I want to smell like Lemonheads? In fact, the question shortly becomes moot, as MALIBU BLOSSOM becomes slightly woody—probably vetiver—within a couple of minutes, drying down somewhat similarly to Fresh SUGAR LEMON.

Which do I prefer? It's a tough call, but I find the Fresh version slightly fresher than the Pacifica. There is an ever-so-slight touch of tang at the tail-end of the mid-stage of MALIBU BLOSSOM which makes it slightly less likeable than SUGAR LEMON (whose own mid-stage is a bit Lemon Pledge-y but still pretty nice), though still quite wearable on a hot summer day. In the drydown, I detect neroli in the Pacifica but not in the Fresh rendition. The difference in price is trivial: Pacifica costs about a cup of coffee less, so all in all it's worth it to buy the Fresh for the bottle alone, which I happen to love.

One downside to the Pacific line is that they have yet to awaken to the reality that the packaging matters to perfumistas, too—sometimes quite a lot... The presentations of their products just scream out “amateur!” That on the bottle of what I presume is edt is somewhat kitschily painted the word 'perfume' along with bad floral graphics pretty much sums it up. Anyway, the Fresh is fresher to my nose, so if I decide to replenish my lemon citrus collection once my two 30ml bottles are gone, I'll opt for the Fresh once again.
