About Moon Drops

Moon Drops is a feminine perfume by Prism Parfums. The scent was launched in 1970, originally by Revlon, who say:

This is a bold statement fragrance of sharp muguet and ylang ylang exuding from a base of balsamic notes and woods. Entwining floral notes of jasmine sing amongst undertones of honeyed ripe fruit. Turn heads as you enter a room.

Reviews of Moon Drops

What an original and highly unusual scent!

It goes on like gang busters, is quite concentrated, and quite loud.

The initial blast is mint, mint and more mint. Odd in that there is no mint in any of the ingredients. One would swear peppermint was involved here. I have smelled lilies that were this intense and similar in their minty ripeness, but again there is no lily ingredient mentioned in the notes.

Beneath it all is a honeyed floral chypre base that is quite nice in the dry down.

For Barbara Herman, this is a "sensuous base of balsamic and woods with the sharpness of muguet and ylang ylang." I certainly get the "sharp." This accounts for the "honeyed ripe fruit" aspect Ms. Herman also realizes and its "decadence."

Top notes: Gardenia, Peach, Raspberry, Bergamot
Heart notes: Rose, Jasmine, Muguet, Ylang, Carnation, Orris, Honey, Tuberose
Base notes: Sandalwood, Musk, Cedarwood, Moss, Styrax, Amber, Benzoin

It's hard to react to this. It certainly does not deserve a thumbs down - it is original and it is intense and pleasant to the nose. Similarly, it does not deserve a thumbs up as it is a difficult scent to pull off. So, the neutral.

Do try it, by all means. It's rare to come across something this original in vintage scents from the 1970s. You may just love it.

To me, the vintage Moon Drops is a typical "drugstore floral" lacking originality and subtlety. I haven't smelled it for years and quite frankly, I don't miss it a bit. I have met a few women who could wear it reasonably well which is why I cannot give it a radical thumbs down rating. It is just not my cup of tea.

For those who like this fragrance but cannot find it where they live, there are a few other rather similar fragrances: Babe (Fabergé), Estée (Estée Lauder), Yendi (Capucci) and even Wind Song (Prince Matchabelli). Personally, Yendi is by far my favourite. I find it much more subtle and refined.

Great name. Too bad it doesn't smell like what one thinks it should. The peril of names.
