Caramel floral
I honestly never bought into this number and all the fuss and ahhh, ohhh about it. This is a caramel, sticky toffee pudding fragrance with a hint of bitter note on the opening. I was expecting much better! It is good, but nothing really special or an outstander, this I mean.

Sillage very poor, longevity very good (6 hrs) as skin scent. This works better sprayed on clothes than on oneself, as it projects better - and for longer.

I have to give it a 6. Nina here created a nice juice, but a bit more rose and less caramel would have made this a one of a kind scent. Perhaps this will perform better in the heat... will wait for a summer test, though it is a bit on the heavy side of fragrances for that.
I am left unimpressed.

Not what I expected
EDIT July 24, 2017: I must confess that this appeals to me more in the heat of summer. That peppery note is diminished and the rose is not so musty. If you prefer these notes, the perfume will suit you in colder weather. Personally, I love the jammy, syrupy rose wrapped in caramel! It is sweet, but I don't think it's too strong or cloying. Sillage seems strong, but not overly so. Longevity rocks! This is delicious in the heat; I will never wear it again in the winter. Mmm! I have adjusted my ratings accordingly.
--------------------------------------------------------------
I blind bought this perfume, based upon the strength of reviews. A rosy caramel was enticing! Sadly, that's not my impression. I get no fruits, not much caramel, but lots of pepper and rose. I can't believe more people haven't rated the strong pepper note higher!!! It's not as sneeze-inducing as Stash, but it's close. It is possible that my chemistry causes the pepper note to explode.

The rose is more of a musty rose, I must confess, not the clearer rose of Stella, which is what I was expecting and honestly what I prefer. This perfume is reminding me of something my aunt has worn for 30+ years. I don't love it.

That being said, I don't dislike it either, I just wish that the caramel was stronger. I was expecting more sweetness; it is hardly sweet at all on me. Caramel is one of my favorite perfume notes, and I was hoping for more of it in this scent, based on what reviewers have posted. I guess I really will have to commit to that full bottle of Luna!

Sillage seems decent; longevity is good. It takes a while for the perfume to go from top to middle to base, so unfortunately, I was left with the peppery note for a good while.

Ah, well. It is a nice, heavy flacon, and I bought the smallest size, so c'est la vie! You win some, you lose some!

In summer this is a jammy, syrupy rose-caramel confection. In winter it is pepper and musty rose. Pick your poison! I prefer sultry summer!
