THE FRAGRANCE
Part of the Flower collection
A lover's carnival on the moon - feelings worth reaching to the moon and back.” - Jan Vilhelm Ahlgren 

LOVE TO THE MOON AND BACK: His love was a dancer whose golden skin held the scent of passion who loved tuberose more than any other flower. So he travelled the world in search of all the tuberose to fill the moon. For seven days and seven nights, the moon scattered this enchanting scent – pears, patchouli, ambroxan, orris and musk – across the universe.

tuberose + coconut dessert

There's no coconut listed in the note? For me, this fragrance smells like tuberose + coconut dessert! The tuberose essence is not bubblegum-y. It is as if freshly extracted from the flower.

If coconut is a ghost note here, gardenia is on the cast list but never shows up. Jean Claude-Ellena praised Chanel Gardenia in his book as his favorite reinvention of this flower. That fragrance is a drama played out somewhere between jasmine and tuberose. It does not smell of the flower but of happiness. Given the release date of many tuberose and gardenia fragrances, some reviewers associate these notes with aged women, however not at all for me. I am simply obsessed with their mesmerizing, sensual, and cheerful quality.

In terms of creativity, Moon Carnival is not ground-breaking. It sits in the same realm as FM Carnal Flower, D.S. & Durga Durga, and Nasomatto Narcotic V, but is a slight gourmand variation. Carnal Flower and Durga are loftier, more like a deep pocket; whereas Narcotic V and Moon Carnival are more approachable and girly. Among these four, Moon Carnival has the weakest sillage and longevity.

Even it is not the world's most unique, most beast-mode fragrance, I still NEED it in my collection, all blame to its superb packaging design. Being fragrant is an experience, and the bottle is part of that.

Pretty, But...

This is a very pretty tuberose and when first applied I had high hopes it would be a winner. Unfortunately, the sillage and longevity just aren’t there, especially for a perfume at this price point. However, if you love tuberose you might be willing to reapply in order to overcome the longevity issue.

If you love tuberose, then this is for you! The scent is lovely and both my mom and I tried it. Unfortunately it lasted on her but not on me :( Reminded me of the old Michael Kors perfume. I recommend getting the tester before getting the big bottle to try it on yourself
