Rotting Fruit...
Lobitt opens with what can best be described as an artificial sharp sour lemon and tart grapefruit citrus hybrid with a tinge of underlying bitter orange. As the composition moves to its early heart the sour lemon and tart grapefruit citrus remain as the composition adds in a co-starring rotting orange peel accord to the mix. During the late dry-down the rotting fruit aspect of the composition dissipates, allowing relatively clean musk to emerge and mesh with the artificial lemon remnants through the finish. Projection is on the low side of average, as is longevity at about 6-7 hours on skin.

I am afraid this stuff smells terrible. The initial artificial sour lemon and grapefruit-like citrus tandem smells like PEZ candy, sans sweetness. Once you add in the rotting orange peel aspect, the end result is one of the worst citrus concoctions I have ever encountered. I have no idea why the perfumer would think this was a good idea, but all I know is once I am done writing this review the composition is getting scrubbed off pronto. The relatively clean musky late dry-down is much better, but why would one suffer through the composition just to get a bit of sensory relief as their reward? I wish I had more to say, but Lobitt does not merit it. The bottom line is the 89 Euro per 50ml bottle Lobitt is a disgusting mix of artificial PEZ-like citrus and rotting fuit, earning it a "very poor" 1 star out of 5 rating and an extremely strong avoid recommendation. What were the folks at Loant thinking?

Orange Freezy Pop Gets Freezerburn
Lobitt goes on as a sweet, resiny, tree smell -- fir. It hits the skin strong and promising and then gets bowled over by a cheap, orange Freezy-pop smell. Moments later the musk shows up, and begins swirling around you. Oddly enough, the musk smells quite refined and classy. I have to admit that I'm confused at this point. What is Lobitt trying to achieve? To answer this question, I went on a walk in the 80+ degree Florida heat.

No luck. It still smells like orange Freezy-pop with whiffs of musk. However, by now I can see what they wanted to achieve -- a fresh, oceanic, shore kind of scent, but it's not working. Neither heat nor humidity (nor dead of night probably) affect this scent; in fact the heat only amps it up. Projection is about 2 feet -- the distance from my arms to my nose.

In 25 minutes, the musk sweetens, but it turns the cheap orange smell into a stale freezer-burn kind of cheap orange smell. Lobitt just doesn't come together like it should. It has elements that not only clash, but hate each other and mess up each other's hair. Around the three-hour mark, the scent has receded into a faint, sterile, seaside scent, not unlike Dune. It dies shortly thereafter.

Lobitt doesn't work, but it's not offensive. It's just weird like the way an unfinished puzzle is weird -- you can't see the picture and you're not sure all the pieces are even there in the first place.

Smells how it looks like
Lôbitt reminds me of a certain cooling drink I remember from the late 80s/early 90s. It was called "sicilian mandarin with lime". One of my favorite coolers ever. The mandarin and lime aroma could have been quite overpowering and highly concentrated, but I liked it much and was sad when it got shelved. To me, Lôbitt smells like the drink tasted - very fresh and juicy, but partly overexaggerated.
It's negligible that the neon yellow scent comes across a bit synthetic. Officially there is no lime involved, but the associtation is there, maybe it comes from the neroli.

Annoyingly, Lôbitt seems to collapse after a few minutes and gets an irksome gum-like nature. This vanishes later and the mandarin seems to recover itself, but I don't find it that pleasant. Later the scent gets more citrusy and reminds me somehow of the Dior Homme Sport, but only slightly.

Lôbitt lasts quite long in comparison to other citrus scents. It could be a clue that not all ingredients are of natural origin.

I'm not a fan of layering, so I decided to test Lôbitt on its own for now. The scent is principally ok, but sadly not continuously a clean scent and squeaky at times (the dazzling color could have been a hint in the first place).

Further comments on the layering concept of Santi Burgas and possible recommendable combinations with Lôbitt will follow.
