High among my current top fragrances is Moon Dance by Juliette Has a Gun. The scent puts me in mind of flowers blooming at midnight, but not jasmine. It is an expensive fragrance that I finally found on sale at frangrancenet for about one third of the original price. Everything about the presentation calls out “high end,” including the hardy, substantial decanter.
The fragrance is so fabulously blended that it’s hard to decipher individual notes. The first spray wafts in a sweet spiciness hovering over a velvet background. It is incredibly hypnotic and sensual. As another user mentioned, it smells purple. Later the scent develops an enticing milky quality that adds to its longevity. As time passes, the fragrance seems to integrate and become part of one’s very soul essence. Did I say how much I love Moon Dance?
Moon Dance is a chypre white floral. Key notes are tuberose, violet, rose, patchouli, and bergamot. As I said, the blend is exquisite in its perfected oneness. Users on Fragrantica give it a 4.27 out of 5 and overwhelmingly love it rather than like or dislike. How did I find Moon Dance? Among a group of violet perfume samples I ordered! It’s amazing what expert noses can do with violet.
