Of all the blue moons, this one appealed to me the most; it sounded both unusual and full of notes I can wear.
In the bottle: Aquatic, evergreen, herb, but somehow also warm. I really like this; it is deep and dark like a pool of water reflecting the moon.
Wet: The jasmine note is strong now. Night-blooming jasmine likes me, but so far this one is cooperating with some of the more delicate notes. Still an aquatic vibe, but I'm a little worried it's going to go over to tannin. The white sage is fine on me, but violet leaf is iffy.
Half an hour: The cucumber is the perfect anchor for the jasmine here. It fixes the tendency of the jasmine to go strident, adds a lovely aquatic note, and keeps bringing me back to huff some more. This is really nice on me and unless it changes catastropically I'm definitely keeping my bottle.
Two and a half hours: It survived a load of dishes! Still a very nice, very soft aquatic jasmine note, but by now it's as much herbal as floral. I'm getting the sage, the hyssop, and some evergreen along with what I think is the violet leaf. Overall it reminds me right now of the early phase of Velvet Cthulhu on me, with the same herb-frankincense axis.
The night-blooming jasmine note in this one is very true to the plant, which grows locally to me. Even though I have several night-blooming jasmine scents (notably Faiza, but there are others), this one is very different from almost everything else in my stash thanks to that aquatic tinge.
I don't usually have a lot of luck with the eclipse or blue moon scents, so I'm thrilled at how nicely this one works on me.
