I love Moonstone. It's gardenia- dewy ,wet, fresh and abit green but definitely a gardenia. Being a perfume oil, the sillage is much softer but very sniffable on skin. As Moonstone develops ,in addition to the gorgeous gardenia , vanilla, amber and oakmoss come into play whilst the gardenia recedes slowly into the background. Then I get a gardenia and Chanel No. 5 EDT vibe to it.
It is a worthy gardenia for me . If you love Kai perfume oil and Monyette Paris but desire a slightly different take on gardenia, you should try this one.
