If I Could put Pretentiousness in a Bottle
Everyonce in a great while, I come across a fragrance that embodies the definition of "Perfumes" and I call these "Pretty Fumes" that is what Étoile de Lune is to me. This is not a collection of notes, it is a single suggestion and that suggestion speaks to me and says "I am wearing a perfume- whatever...". And that is all I get from this- it is an artifical perfumey smell without much else to offer- sweet, golden amber & powdery soft Rose, Jasmine are all discernable and they colminate in a solid well contructed scent. However, my praise stops there, because I sense the souless wind of generic fowers-amber-musc without even a second thought on originality or uniqueness.Thes is a fragrance that smells like so many Department store standards, I am totally unimpressed. Yawn. If I had to choose between this and wearing nothing ....it would be nothing. Aptly named Stars and Moon, they really couldn't even spend more than a few minutes on the name. I think this scent should be called 'Whatever'. That is all that comes to my mind- unexceptional stuff.
