Thunder Moon 2021

The wind begun to rock the grass
With threatening tunes and low, –
He flung a menace at the earth,
A menace at the sky.
– Emily Dickinson

 

A crack of ozone splits the rolling, booming darkness: a starless sky of bruise-purple violet, 3-year aged black patchouli, black cashmere musk, oakmoss, black benzoin, rum, French labdanum, and vetiver slashed by a burst of white lychee and bergamot.

This one instantly went into my cart as it has many of my favorite notes -- violet, patchouli, black musk, labdanum, vetiver... I expected something darker. Instead I get a soapy white floral and none of the deep base notes I was hoping for. It almost feels like the batch wasn't mixed properly. I will let it age to see if it darkens up, or maybe I will try layering it with something heavy on the patchouli and vetiver. Curious about other people's impressions. I SO wanted to love this. 😢

I don't get any violet from this (a note I dislike and tend to amp). Instead, I get lychee, plum (like in other stormy scents like Crack of Thunder HG and Stormclouds Over the Midway), ozone, and what may be the black cashmere musk on a bed of resins. Sometimes I amp oakmoss, and although it is present, it's not a main player on me in this scent. The patchouli is also present, but not as strong as the other notes, and the vetiver isn't leaping out at me. It's mostly a fruity, ozonic, resinous incense blend on me.

 

I do not think that this is a scent that I would reach for, but it's made me want to try this white lychee note in another scent with fewer notes.

This was much nicer than I anticipated! I'm not a huge fan of ozone scents, but I was intrigued by the violet and patchouli.

 

It smelled very fruity on me, which I wasn't really expecting since the lychee seemed low on the notes. It was definitely the lychee that I smelled, but there was also sort of like a mix of grapes and plums? Best way I can describe it is that it matches the label: a very purple scent. Interesting.

 

Eventually those notes softened a bit and then I finally got the violet and patchouli I was looking for. It was still a very fruit heavy scent on me even as the other notes started to peak through. The only notes that didn't show up much were the ozone and oakmoss. Everything else, especially the benzoin and vetiver which I was a little worried about, didn't seem too strong.

 

Pretty good, definitely my favorite ozone scent as of yet. Was not expecting all that fruit so if your skin chemistry is similar to mine and you don't like plums I would avoid this.

I get a very green violet and hints of both plum and grapes, and it ends up coding as a resiny sort of cola because thank you benzoin, and dries down to a sort of green oakmoss benzoin and labdanum swampy resin. Medium throw and wear length.
