You know what is the activity I have been doing most today? Yes, looking at the white screen between the actual screens changing, with all Refresh function in use.
Anyhow, besides our actual three sniffers and Warum, nobody was able to submit a correct guess for Sample B.
It is Revlon Moon Drops
(1970), USA, nose unknown. Our mass market, drug store cheapie, going in the cologne form for $150.00 on the eBay. I told you already how I got mine and how much I paid for it. Mine is 1 oz of pure perfume, now it is about 75% of the bottle.
It is old. It is not in the pristine condition and the top notes are indistinguishable -- citrus and aldehydes die young, so did peach and raspberry in mine, I suspect.
T: Aldehydes, gardenia, peach, bergamot, raspberry;
H: Lily of the valley, rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, carnation, orris, honey, tuberose;
B: Sandalwood, musk, cedarwood, moss, styrax, benzoin, amber.
The reviews are non existent. However, I saw Moon Drops compared to EL Estee Supercologne in some, I jumped up at Thalia's mentioning EL other fragrances. Despite the oakmoss, it is not a chypre -- like our sniffers have noted -- it is a full bodied aldehydic floral with lush woody drydown. It is old school and decadent. Discontinued, hard to find. Long Lost Perfumes had an attempt of reviving this with Irma Shorrell's Luna Rain, but since it was not very similar -- people were not buying it and it was discontinued again. Here is quite a recent review of Moon Drops solid that I liked, but our was liquid and perfume:http://yesterdaysperfume.typepad.com...vlon-1970.html
No, I do not write this linked blog. I do not write a blog at all. Thanks for encouraging me to shout to the world in your PMs.
The modern and more known product under the name Moon Drops is Revlon lipstick which comes in a variety of colors and both matte and pearlescent finishes.
And no, I do not have a Haarmann-Reimer book at home. I saw the blogger using it. Warum was able to come up with this same blog post by typing "Haarmann Reimer 70's perfume" and a few notes into the Google search box.
