Cold Moon 2020

Recommended Posts

This year’s Cold Moon is a frozen chocolate confection because we’re too deep into 2020 for me to feel like being profound.

Cold moon starts off as a cold, frosty, chocolate milkshake and then some winter outdoor elements, like fir/spruce and maybe even a little snow come out. It's basically like enjoying a milkshake outside in winter. I'm here for it.

This initially goes on like the chocolate from Jólabókaflóðið, with a hint of a coldness under it. Sadly, there's an ozoney slush note that has a hint of aquatic that comes forward, and overpowers the chocolate. This doesn't work for me.

Strangely enough, I don't get any of the chilled chocolate that others have experienced.

 

It goes on my skin wet like a gooey and warm fudge brownie. Once it dries down a little the chocolate all but disappears and cools to a chilly winter night. After it's dried and I've worn it for a little while I get more of the feeling of walking through an evergreen forest on a snowy evening. I actually love that scent of fresh pine needles, so this one will definitely be a keeper for me. I also enjoy a scent that morphs a lot so I get to enjoy several scents in one wearing.

 

Medium wear and has a good throw when first applied. I'm curious how this one will smell as a DIY room spray.

Okay, so just got my bottle last night; showered this AM and put it on along with the matching T-shirt, and drinking some fudge-flavored iced coffee from Bones Coffee, so I am all set to go on this one.  In the bottle:  Straight-up perfect Fudgesicle from afternoon snack time at summer camp growing up.  As in perfect sensory memory match.  On, wet:  Fudgesicle note bursts open along with a few bright sparks of some kind of winter garland thing...getting a bit of white chilly floral and a hint of fresh evergreen balsam.  Now it's festive fudge that you get from the candy counter of a Christmas tree ornament shop!  Drydown--after about two hours it dries down to a sort of sophisticated cocoa powder, snow notes, and that chilly winter garland thing with tiny glimmers of balsam in it.  Really pretty and so comforting -- again this is one of the most memory-triggering scents that I've come across in a while.

How do you do DIY room sprays?  Thanks!
