You've smelled this before
I tested Living Stromboli today while I await Light Blue in the mail.
LB:LS is the epitome of aquatics, a scent you've smelled a dozen times before. It's Aquatic (TM).
That said, as a floral aquatic it's good at what it does: project a nice clean smell.
It's been discontinued, and there is no reason to pay a premium.
I'm intrigued to know what's awaiting me in the mail.
Pros: Smells nice
Cons: Smells like most aquatics, especially Aqua di Gio</p>

So far it's just 'meh'.....yawn although it is an improvement on the horrifically sharp synthetic original!
Not a bad top note with the mild sweetness of the lychee being tampered by some citrus-aqua freshness that dries down nicely into a floral and artifical amber base. The scent is clearly very synthetic but pleasant and refreshing, albeit safe, nondescript and a bit boring. After thirty minutes it becomes very close to my skin, where it remains for another couple of hours.

Very cold aqua scent that reminds me of the 80's.
It has a good longevity but to me it lacks a bit in complexion.
