I’ve got to be honest, when Demeter Fragrance Moonbeam* showed up I honestly had no idea what it would smells like. I mean, what DOES a moonbeam smell like? Well if it’s anything like this, it’s delicious!
Like with Oud, I’m going to share the official description of Demeter Fragrance Moonbeam:
A fascinating and unique “foody floral” that opens with Vanilla and Chocolate, then combines with green leaves, Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Amber and precious Woods, Demeter’s Moonbeam captures the dual nature of the moonbeam, reflecting elements of both the innocence of light and the passion of night.
Admittedly, on my skin, I smell far more of the sweet, foody elements than anything like “green leaves” but is delicious!
Admittedly, one of the things that surprised me a lot about Demeter Fragrance Moonbeam is that for a brand focused on singular scents, this is a pretty complex mix. The chocolate and vanilla combine with a sweet amber for something like midnight flowers on the water, opening under the night sky… or a moonbeam. It’s a mysterious scent, perfect for winter evenings and has a bit of a musk to it. It’s the sweeter cousin of Demeter Fragrance Oud.
The wear on Demeter Fragrance Moonbeam was not incredibly long-lasting, it had already begun to fade by 2.5 hours in and was basically gone within another hour. However, I find the bottles to be really travel friendly. The Cologne Spray in 1 oz retails for $20 but you can get a 1/2 oz Cologne Splash for only $6 which is even more affordable. At that price I don’t mind if you have to reapply. They are also really effective as a room spray with 2 to 3 spritzes.
Demeter Fragrance Moonbeam actually reminds me of some of my other perfume, so it’s not surprising that I love it. Throw some vanilla into a scent and I’m sold! But if you’re looking for something warm and delicious, I highly recommend giving this a sniff. Apparently it also works really nicely on men… but I’m not sharing mine!
