Sage Machado – Moonstone

Perfume: Moonstone
Perfumer: Sage Machado
Source: Luscious Cargo
Size: 0.5 mL

Luscious Cargo notes: narcissus, gardenia, amber, vanilla, musk, oakmoss, tobacco flower

Date: 10/28/07 Weather: 50 degrees and clear

Comments: Starts as a white floral. Soon becomes a strong gardenia. Stays this way for a couple of hours before it finally fades into a vanilla scent. Also picks up a powdery note. Lasts about 5.5 hours. Finding it wearable, but not a favorite. This isn’t even my favorite Gardenia scent. Not fond of the powdery note at the end.

Date: 2/24/08 Weather: 30 degrees, evening

Comments: Strong white floral. Then strong indolic gardenia. Almost suffocating for the first couple of hours. Goes through a brief powdery phase (which was quite welcome after the white florals) before the the vanilla at the 2 hour mark. The vanilla at the end of this is not super sweet (to me) – a bit ambery.
