Intrusive Thot
One Hit Wonder

I'll admit, this fragrance smells completely and beautifully identical to a lemon tart. It's sweet, tart, and very realistic. But in my opinion, that's really all it has going for it. I like this scent, but can't really "identify" with it, despite its seemingly universal appeal. I don't want to smell like this every day, or even most days, it's just not practical as a signature/everyday scent, unless I'm trying to catfish some rich bachelor into thinking I work at an Italian bakery that sells exclusively lemon tarts. Overall very nice, but not a favorite by any means.

Gourmand Girlies WYA

Way out of my price range but such a wonderful gourmand blend of orange, caramel, and vanilla. Almost smells to me like a scented marker which sounds weird but trust me in the best way. If I was going to purchase this fragrance it would definitely be a dupe and not the real deal. Perfect for the gourmand girlies tho!!

Delicious lemony goodness

Got a 1ml sample of Lira and was very pleased. Great lemony gourmand scent...fairly complex as well. I definitely get lemon cake, but also some floral notes as well that round it out. I would say that this is similar to Akro Bake, but definitely more complex...

Not what I expected…

After reading reviews of people describing this as a “lemon cake in a bottle” I was very excited to receive my sample. The opening is a very distinct bright lemon scent which is amazing, but sadly goes away very quickly. Then what came next was what I wasn’t expecting…there’s this almost medicinal smell that was quite overpowering and didn’t give me that edible baked good vibe I heard so much about. To be honest, it kind of threw me off and I almost thought maybe I got the wrong scent or received a bad batch, but I’m starting to think perhaps this is what the fragrance is like or maybe it just doesn’t go well on me personally. Others who also weren’t enthused about Lira have described it as a strong licorice or even like a smokey tobacco and I completely understand what they mean. I will say the dry down becomes this spicy vanilla with a very slight hint of citrus which isn’t bad, but a bit uninteresting. The spiciness is that medicinal aspect toned down combined with the vanilla ending. Leaving on a more positive note, I want to say that you can definitely tell it’s a quality perfume, I guess I was just expecting something different. Definitely not a blind buy. Unisex for sure, maybe very slightly femme leaning but not by much. Personally I think I would find this a bit more interesting on a man.
