Taste Differences in Italian and Swiss Meringue Buttercreams?

Can someone give me some insight into the differences in taste between Italian Meringue Buttercream and Swiss Meringue Buttercream? I'm specifically interested in knowing which of the two is fluffier and sweeter, as I've found the meringue-based buttercreams to be too buttery in the past and think that a tad more sweetness might even out the potentially "lardy" (not my adjective) profile of the buttercream. Basically, I don't want one that tastes like I'm eating a stick of butter and I've definitely had and made ones like this before. Thanks!
