Citrus Paradisi is indeed the best citrus I know of, you mentioned Acqua di Parma being less tenacious than CP, can I assume they smell pretty much the same? Is it worth trying it out?
I've never tried Montale aoud, so Dark Rose is a bit on the heavy side for me, if all aoud scents are lilke this, then I will give Montale a pass.
NO. 88 is well-balanced, love it.
Cuba has a sweaty smell, but overall masculine.
The rest very average.
