Scent of Monday – Quick Review + Sample Draw

Escentuelle Moonbeam ♀


Started the day with the sweet, delicate floral that is Moonbean by Escentuelle. The perfumer, Carolyn Hassett, of Escentuelle Signature Fragrance Creation  describes Moonbeam as evoking “light, but softer than that of sunshine.” Moonbeam is from Escentuelle’s Pret-a-Porter collection. Moonbean begins with an instant of fruity sweetness and very quickly moves to a lightly musky floral and powder.  The barely there peony gives the perfume a dewy touch. Mmmmm.

Here is what Moonbeam may look like as you move through your perfume experience.

Moonbeam is a soft floral that is not at all obtrusive. The powdery heart and musky, woody base gives Moonbeam a pass from the very sweet, candy like top notes.  I do not detect any sweetness in the dry down. All in all, Moonbeam, is a muted, slightly sweet and mysterious ray of feminine light.

Top: lychee, green bergamot, green tea
Heart: bamboo, pomegranate flower, violet, peony
Base: floral musk, amber, cedar, candy accord
