Scent Name: Moonsand
Manufacturer: Nocturne Alchemy – Halloween Resurgence: Perfume Potion Collection – Limited Edition 2020
Scent Description and Notes: “Light essences of Pear, Clementine, Heliotrope, Gardenia, Plumeria and White Amber Absolute.” -http://www.zombiiesque.net/
Oil Color: A colorless oil on my skin.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a 5ml standard brown apothecary bottle. The label extends just under halfway around the bottom and features the name of the scent located near the bottom of the label, just above the border, in a stylized sepia tone-ed font. The company acronym in the same color font, although much more ornate and larger, is located at the top left of label. The image is of a crescent moon taper candle stand. The bottle appears as follows:
- ITB: Light, cloud-like, and dark I say effervescent, this is a stunning pear-forward fruity floral that is well balanced and warmly sweet under the delicate white florals. My mouth waters each time I smell this.
- Wet: Gardenia and plumeria surrounding ripe pear flesh, sugared and almost jewel toned like a pear Jelly Belly. There’s a slight creaminess after a minute that reminds me of a creamy vanilla-tinted cocoa butter, which serves to provide a sensuous bed for the glittering florals and crisp pear flesh notes.
- Dry: 14 hours after application, I’m still able to smell pear and gardenia, sweet with a pleasingly warmth and roundness that reminds me of a cozy vanilla note. Stunning!
Other Impressions: “It smells like a feminine airy, spring-like, powdery version of 1 Million Eau de Toilette by Paco Rabanne. It smells very nice! I think anyone could wear this, honestly.” -Tony.
Sure enough, I tried this on him, and while the fruits and florals were there, the scent had a delightful spiced quality on his skin that definitely was attractive regardless of gender.
