What a disappointment this one was... :(
Magical Moon (EDP) could be summed up in three notes: Star fruit, incense, and sugar. All with equal presence.

Unfortunately, the hefty dose of incense induced it to smell like fruit salad in an ash tray on my skin. I was so disappointed because I love Hanae Mori perfumes in general. :o(

If you like sweet orientals with incense, and the tropical fruit notes here turned you off, I can recommend "Holy Champa by Antoine & Lili" for you. This perfume was created by Marc Buxton - one of my favorite noses, who also created many of the awesome orientals in the market.

Make sure to skin test first before committing to a full bottle. This fume can be tough to tame.

Common fruitchouli
I bought this one unsniffed - had read many favourable reviews and thought the bottles was cute. But then, I should have remembered that I'm not a "fruity girl", not even a "fruitchouli girl". This fragrance combines a huge basket of exotic fruit which don't feel like a tasty combination. Well, the fragrance surprised me with one of the strongest fruity top-notes I ever experienced. Fortunately, the drydown is much better, warm patchouli, some traces of frankincense, cedar. Okay, but not very original. This kind of fragrance is available in many other forms from other brands - but if you love pretty bottles, this one is a MUST for your collection.

An Ill-fated Marriage
Hanae Mori MAGICAL MOON is something of a jumble of strong fruit and various other notes which unfortunately does not sit well on my skin. To my nose, the opening is very loud but not very fresh, rather like a pile of exotic fruits that someone forgot about next to a wilting bouquet. Imagine the scene at a swanky Caribbean hotel wedding suite all paid for in advance, but, alas, one of the would-have-been newlyweds gets cold feet. For days the maid stays away, afraid to disturb the happy couple. In the meantime, the fruit rots and the flowers die--as if to certify symbolically the ill-fated marriage!

The sweet patchouli drydown becomes somewhat nicer, but not nice enough to justify enduring the unpleasant opening. Receptions to MAGICAL MOON probably have more to do with skin chemistry than with the composition itself, which I've found to be generally the case with complicated fruity compositions such as this. Since I like the first two Hanae Mori creations, I was optimistic about MAGICAL MOON. But, alas, like the marriage of our metaphorical couple, it was not meant to be! Désolée.

Magical Moon
At first spray you get a blast of a
scent of sugarcain and a warm scent of
coconut oil reminisent of ancient Egpyt
when they massage it into thier hair.
in a few minutes the sweet scent of guava and the semi-tangness of starfruit
to make it presence to the senses hard to notice the orange blossoms.
the drydown is the greatest esoteric
masterpiece with the offering of rose note to the to the Goddess Isis The Goddess of Love Aphroditie and the mother goddess Uma. the flower of feminity. and the veil of sandalwood
dances around giving thanks for the
creators for the fertilty.
the patchouli is very soft and mild.

with one spray Riding though the deserts of egypt and the color of the flacon of Dark Lapis represent the Twilight sky driving though the pyrimids and the big Giant sphinx glowing it's errie glow so you with in
your curiousity with a flashlight into the tombs of the ancient masters and try to deschyper the most famous of their whrighing the Hierglyphics
and into the dark caves where the mysterious & Ominious moans appear

This will give you an Spirital Awakining.

Likable & better than Butterfly
I don't like HM Butterfly, but I do like HM Magical Moon and HM Haute Couture. MM & HC are two very different fragrances of course, but I think both are under-appreciated because they are *so* unlike Butterfly & are not immediately recognizable ... which are good things.

Magical Moon is a modern floriental. It's not dark or gothic. Rather, it's relatively clean & clear, which is unique for a contemporary creation in this category. It's difficult to pick out and identify specific notes. The fragrance is a sweet melange but it works.

I own Magical Moon in parfum and edp. Both are long-lasting, and I really don't sense a big difference between these 2 concentrations. That was a surprise to me because the concentrations in other HMs - specifically, Butterfly & Haute Couture - wear like different fragrances. Nevertheless, Magical Moon parfum is special - it strikes me as being much better quality, and, besides, the parfum is a sillage bomb!

Magical Moon can be worn year around and makes a striking, unique office-friendly alternative in the EdP when sprayed with a light hand. I think it could also be safely worn by the guys!

Very good fragrance, excellent price ... gently used bottles can frequently be found for a steal on ebay ...
