"Floral-Oriental" my arse...It smells like marshmallows. Eventually they will come out with a "flanker" of it with the inevitable chocolate note, which they could name "S'mores". Really quite the nastiest thing I have smelt in a long time. Pure nausea.
K.L Sun Moon Stars is like a strange Bird cannot decide
if i like nor love The opening has a sparkling anise
opening S.M.S has a similar Banana note stands prominent
Like D&G's Sicily but it's doesn't give an syrupy
cloying effect like Sicily; Sun Moon Stars is dried and
more ozonic touch; Red Orchids swim around juicy Peach
Gives an Intoxicating Aroma airy Freesia dries with a
dreamlike and lucent feel closes the top layer.
Heliotrope similar to the scent of Vanilla opens
the Heart of Sun Moon Stars; Rain soaked Narcissus
Gives out a darkly sweet scent almost like a mystery
The Drydown turns sweet with Vanilla which dominates
the other notes from the base seems to drown them
a bit but i can dectect a faint amount of Amber.
l am not normally a fan of fruit in fragrances, especially peach, & yet l'm on my second bottle of this since it first came out. Why? lt's hard to say, but l think it's the freesia & orange blossom combination that makes it so special to me, along with the musky ambery drydown. lt's unusual, somehow dark & bright at the same time. lt also has incredible sillage which could be too much if oversprayed, & it lasts for days on clothes. And l must add that, although my head is not usually so easily turned by a pretty bottle, l totally fell for this one!
Edit; having acquired other orientals that l like much more, l pretty much stopped wearing this one, & now find it rather cloying. l'm keeping my almost-finished older bottle for old times' sake, (it takes me back to a particular winter holiday in Greece years ago) but l have sold my back-up bottle.

Sun Moon Stars evades description. It's sweet, it's spicy, it's juicy, it's earthy, it's light, it's powerful. It smells like a magical gifts shop my mother worked at when I was younger. It has a sort of sweet Tibetan smokiness I could not have forseen reading the notes list. Even the aforementioned 'Swedish Fish' accord is spot on. Delicious!
Sun Moon Stars has everything good going for it; layers, change, complexity, price, longevity, beauty, all of it. What a gem!
best worn in the evening, sweet, intense and alluring
