Claimed to be made with all natural ingredients, Moon Bloom essentially consists of a linear, creamy/fatty/tuberjasmylang white floral accord. A touch of vanilla-like sweetness in the blend helps balance out a metallic, green tea note, but also accentuates slightly the banana associations of ylang-ylang.
Whilst the composition is harmonious, it’s almost too much so: for rather than showcasing a particular facet of Big White Florals, e.g. their indolic side, or their salicylatey side, Moon Bloom seems content to demonstrate that they all go well together. Which they do. But it’s not saying anything especially new.
