Hanae Mori Magical Moon. I had the old Hanae Mori years ago, thought I liked it, never wore it, it gave me a headache. March thought Magical Moon was pretty good, so I was willing to give it a go and stock up on Excedrin just in case.
Gad, I’m going to need that Excedrin, but not because of the smell. Notes of Osmanthus flower, rose, sugar cane, cotton flower, coconut milk, white musk, white sandalwood, red cedar, incense, litchi, patchouli, pineapple pulp, guava nectar, star fruit, orange flowers and pink berries… and a partridge in a pear tree.
It’s not terrible at all, is really quite good, but just more fruity floral stuff, and it smells so close to the new Badgley Mischka, just more sweet or something. And… I’ll just cut this review off there, I don’t have anything more interesting to say about it.
Which leads me to my escalating perfume annoyance — can we get new stuff in the department store? Just insert my normal rant about Stepford Perfumes here. I’m tired of saying it, and y’all are tired of hearing it.
Which leads to my question — besides the glut of perfumes that seem amazingly the same, if you could wave your want, what perfume trend would you banish today, and what perfume trend would you like to see back in vogue? You can answer both or one or the other.
