A dark, voluptuous fruity floral oriental that is quite old-fashioned in its concentration of oils.
This was a surprise for me, as I had never heard of it before a friend found a tiny quarter ounce sample bottle for me at a yard sale. The bottle is gorgeous with its sculptured orbs blue on blue and its gold cap.
Hard to believe that girls wore this in high school, as one reviewer states, as it strikes me it is for mature women only, but glad to hear of such good taste so young.
If you are a fan of orientals, it is highly recommended. The mix of sweet peach and mandarin are wonderfully supported by the floral medley with just enough base to anchor it securely, but not overpower it.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. Sweet in a solid way on me. Long lasting. I only wear it in cold times of yr. it's one of my favorites. First noticed it on a friend about 10 yrs ago.,,, not sure if I would love on me,but it's perfect for me in winter.( Too heavy for hot weather)
"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.
