There is no review, no note breakdown, not even on Lattafa's site.
But I ordered it because the bottle will look fantastic in my cabinet of scent.

SOTD (tester): Lorenzo pazzaglia black sea, maritime acquatic scent profile .
Reminds me a little of Acqua di sale from Profumum Roma.
But I like that one better, because it's a little sweeter and feels more summery than this one.

So not a buy for me

Tried this one, opens up with a strong citrus note but dries down very quickly to a powdery scent reminding me of cK one, so it's a no from me. Shame since the opening is great.

I've been looking (sniffing?) for a light summer scent since I'm bored of Costa Azzurra Aqua.

There are so many great summer scents. If you want to stay with Guerlian, I would suggest Eau de Guerlain, Herba Fresca, or even Guerlain's classic Vetiver (though that one is not exactly "light".)

What does "light summer scent" mean to you? Citrusy primarily?

Speaking of which, the Lattafa Pisa I blind bought was a big winner.
Very smooth citrus, with a little woodiness underneath.
And for a citrus scent, it has great performance.

My favorite light summer scents are TFPB Neroli Portofino and Le Labo Bergamote 22. Neither has particularly good performance, however.

Neroli Portofino is excellent. The Forte is much longer lasting, although sadly discontinued by TF/Lauder.

US-based indie perfumer, Darren Alan makes some fantastic stuff. Have recently been wearing his Acqua di Colonia which in my opinion is every bit as good, if not better than TF Neroli Portofino, with much better longevity and superb dry down.
