I can’t add much to calchic’s excellent description: Luce is an uninspiring scent that is masculine, light, and boring. I would try to describe this scent but its really too difficult for me to describe “boring,” except to say that I might take it a little farther than “boring” and assert that the ginger note becomes annoying. And calchic is absolutely right about Mare — go with Mare if you feel you want to buy something from this company — Mare is a wonderful fragrance. And if she’s right about Luce approximating Monsieur de Givenchy, then definitely get Monsieur de Givenchy — it’s a much better fragrance than Luce, which is entirely too bland and empty.
Nice for a man - sort of a niche perfumer's take on Monsieur de Givenchy - but Luce is not for the ladies, or at least this lady. Lavender, lemongrass, ginger and musk add up to a definitively masculine scent here, a nice one though somehow lacking in that little *spark* that it seems to need. Something is missing and it's hard to say what; the ginger should be adequate to give Luce a hit of the spice it calls for but somehow doesn't deliver. This one rarely gets worn around my house - my husband seems to find it as basically unexciting and blah as I do. If you want to get a Beth Terry scent that's failsafe in its uniqueness, go for Mare. I haven't tried Vita yet so I don't know how it ranks in the Creative Universe universe, but Mare is a truly genius fragrance. Luce just is not.
