I’m fairly particular about my strawberry scents as I dislike artificial ones, so I hope this is a product I like.
Scent Name: Strawberry Moon 2012
Manufacturer: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – A Little Lunacy
Scent Description and Notes: “Strawberries that in gardens grow
Are plump and juicy fine,
But sweeter far as wise men know
Spring from the woodland vine.
No need for bowl or silver spoon,
Sugar or spice or cream,
Has the wild berry plucked in June
Beside the trickling stream.
One such to melt at the tongue’s root,
Confounding taste with scent,
Beats a full peck of garden fruit:
Which points my argument.
May sudden justice overtake
And snap the froward pen,
That old and palsied poets shake
Against the minds of men.
Blasphemers trusting to hold caught
In far-flung webs of ink,
The utmost ends of human thought
Till nothing’s left to think.
But may the gift of heavenly peace
And glory for all time
Keep the boy Tom who tending geese
First made the nursery rhyme.
Wild strawberries, strawberry flower, strawberry blossom honey, vanilla-infused sugar, early summer grasses, and milky dandelion sap.” -BPAL
Oil Color: Colorless
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). This is a decant from ralenth, who tries to match the bottle art to the art she provides on the imp. On the back, she has the notes of the scent in large, cursive font. On the side, she has her decanting name, while the front features the name of the collection and the name of the scent framing the image associated with the scent. The image is Mucha-esque print of two black-haired women playing with Strawberries while seated and leaning against a Art Deco sign with flowers and the name of the scent.
- ITI: Strawberry honey, strawberry juice (the thin, sugary kind), and a little grass. It’s bordering on too artificial and it’s rather sugary to my nose.
- Wet: Better. It smells like sliced strawberries, strawberry jam, vanilla, and just a touch of dandelion. It’s still artificial, but the other notes make it less problematic for my nose.
- Dry: There is more of a green earthiness to the scent from the grass and dandelion sap, although the strawberry is still too sweet and bordering on artificial, like sugared frozen strawberries from freezer bag.
Other Impressions:Strawberries, cut grass, and like…currants – Tony. He doesn’t see me wearing this perfume. He says it is a perfume for a younger girl, someone who should stop wearing it around 13.
