Good mood makers and refreshers
Acqua Viva, the living water. Well, let's see, I already have one or the other representative of Profumum Roma standing at home, so why not something new.

The flacon looks like all the other PRs, you can like it or not, I appreciate the secure stand, the equally simple and yet somehow elegant silhouette, just the plastic cap is worthy of the called price in the smallest way. The spray head, on the other hand, does an excellent job as usual with PR and atomizes the contents in a nice fine mist.
For PR first-time offenders, it should be pointed out at this point that this fragrance also leaves a slightly oily film on the skin, so please pay special attention with white clothes.

It is now well known that there are citrus scents that immediately evoke associations with strong toilet or bathroom cleaners, or those that are so synthetically constructed that it clouds your brain. Acqua Viva is here, as can be expected in this price range, carved from a finer wood. Sure, the lemon is extremely noticeable here too, but not sharp or unpleasant, just the opposite is the case. A very fine smell spreads and wraps the wearer (m/f/d, to be politically correct) in a refreshing coat.

Most PR creations are rather one-dimensional from my point of view (and I mean that in a completely value-neutral way, a good start doesn't always have to have a negative outcome) and here, too, at least I can't really see any significant development of the fragrance. It is lemon, it remains lemon and in the end it was lemon. Summer scents often have a rather moderate sillage and durability, even Acqua Viva unfortunately can't put itself in a different league. The sillage clearly diminishes after one hour, the shelf life is still sufficient with 4-6 hours (depending on the number of sprayings).
But the citric freshness that this fragrance lets me enjoy is already top class and has an enormous unique selling point compared to many other summery representatives. This is also what makes a good fragrance, that you can't smell it on every corner.

And so Acqua Viva is a great summer scent, suitable especially on days with temperature peaks, but also in spring when you long for summer. I'm usually not a friend of unisex things, but here I must clearly state that both men and women will like this good mood maker.

Definitely a test recommendation for anyone who is still looking for something suitable for the season.

Lemon tartlets
Short and sweet.

For me personally, the perfume is just too sweet for a male lemon scent...At the beginning it is very tangy, but the longer it is on my skin, the sweeter it becomes. Almost like a lemon tartlet.
The shelf life is good with me, min. 5 hrs.
The sweetness comes from the broom I suppose, but I never expected it to be so "tardy" (cake-like) I miss the cedar altogether

Lemon cough drops is spot on. Quite fresh with the menthol. If you’re looking for a lemon scent this may be the one. If not, it’s not.

Halls lemon cough drops; intense and long-lasting sweet lemon candy over a slightly mentholated woody backdrop.

This is more lemony than Lemony Snicket's knickers. Holy smokes, this is lemony, ya! As they might say in Fargo.
