Strawberry Moon 09
My first lunacy purchase!
in the imp: Very first whiff is strawberry candy. It makes me think of an actual candy I have had that was not too sweet. It had a soft chewy centre that I would always bite through the candy to get to, rather than wait for the candy to dissolve. Wow, I can really taste that! Yup, that is what I get, the strawberry candy from my past. Ah, I'm not the only one. Someone up thread made the same candy connection. The ones wrapped in strawberry printed foil.
wet: The green grass and vanilla start to come out and the green sharpens things up a bit. But just a bit, tempering the sweet. Wow, the berry smells ever better now. It is making me drool. This is just gorgeous and it is taking me to my happy place.
dry: I get the dandelion as it dries. Now, offhand, I would not think that dandelion would be a desirable scent. But the way it blends in with the strawberry, vanilla and grass is so subtle and lovely. These notes are all win on me. I don't find it at all syrupy or cloying. I can see how it could tip that way, but the other things in the blend are keeping the sweet in line. The throw is quite good for me and my perfume-eating skin. I had it on earlier while reading and kept getting lovely sniffs when I turned the pages.
I got a decant from a circle, since I was so new to BPAL that I had no idea what might work on me. The reviews sounded so good I snapped up the remaining 2 decants in the circle. I am now off in search of a bottle...
