I bought a bottle about a month ago and cannot yet bring myself to wear it! I am not sure why.
Perhaps the difficult and over-designed bottle is off-putting? Perhaps the fact that it is a splash (are they all?) also worries me - how much to apply? But most of all I am not sure if I like it for the reasons you have stated. I do not detect any lemons but a rather unapproachable peppery fragrance. For once the good de Charlus seems to me at least to have slipped up (see Directory).
