PERFUME: Moon Drenched Magnolias
AVAILABILITY: Summer 2010 (Limited Edition)
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: So lovely you could lick these off the tree. Beautiful creamy almost fruity magnolia blossoms. Lemonesque (but you wouldn't say 'lemon' when you smell it), with the softest of musks, a sweet tang but no sharpness.
BEFORE I SMELL: I love the scent of magnolias. I haven’t smell the real flower thought as it isn’t a common tree in Greece. I would love to smell a magnolia tree someday.
FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: This is not what I expected. If I didn’t know that this had magnolia in it maybe, I wouldn’t recognize it. I get a lemony musk and a green floral note. It reminds me of fresh cut daisies.
WET ON SKIN: Definitely in a fruity floral category. On my skin the fruity notes are: candied lemon peel and aromatic\perfumy peach. I don’t know if it has actually peach notes in it. It’s not a strong note. I also get a hint melon. The first time I put it on the lemon was more apparent to me and not the other fruits.
DRY DOWN: It’s mostly lemony musk and magnolia. A hint of chamomile too. Maybe, it's just my skin.
FINAL THOUGHTS: I use this fragrance very often especially at the morning when I have to go somewhere for a job or for a lesson. It wakes you up and it stays close to the skin.
