Lagerfeld Sun Moon Stars Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Huge bottle, quite cheap, nice bottle, long lasting.
Disadvantages: Very heavy when first applied.
My Husband suggested this perfume for me after he had smelt it on a woman who works in the same office as him, he really liked the perfume and he thought it might be something I would like.
I ordered myself a miniature from eBay to try out as I don't like to waste money on something I am unsure about. The miniature bottle is very cute is a small version of the larger bottle, unlike some miniatures that are just little glass tubes of perfume.
Upon first sniff I thought the perfume was not for me as it seemed quite a mature scent, but I gamely put some on and waited for it to develop.
I am no perfume expert so I will describe what I can smell and then give you the official version.
I like to spray the perfume on to the top of my chest/breasts as I think this warms the perfume up and combines it with my own natural smell and also on my inner lower arm.
The initial smell from this perfume is very strong and cloying and makes me think of an older woman's perfume (40's-50's) I have not asked my husband how old the woman at work was, maybe I should.
The perfume is very floral and rich, I can smell Lilies and Roses, with a slight fruity scent of Peaches, the perfume smells warm and is more of an evening wear perfume or a wintery perfume.
After a few hours the perfume has faded back and started to mature while still being floral and powdery, smelling again of Lilies and Orchids and the warmth of Amber coming through.
As the perfume dies off after 6 to 8 houres the wood notes come through, I can smell Vanilla and Sandalwood.
To me the perfume seems to start out strong and brash and then steadily matures into a lighter fragrance before fading into the background, it assaults my nose and then wraps me in feathers.
The official explanation of the perfume is, Top notes of Freesia, Bergamot, Pineapple, Orange Blossom, Lotus, Rice and Peach, Heart notes of Heliotrope, Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Daffodil, Carnation, Lily of the Valley, Orchid and Iris and a base of Sandalwood, Cedar, Amber, Musk and Vanilla.
The top notes and heart notes of this perfume do seem a little crowded which is probably why I feel it is so heavy on the nose at first, I really like the base notes and to be honest if this perfume did not fade nicely and with grace I would not of committed myself to the 100ml bottle.
I personally prefer lighter, flowery, summer fragrances. When I do wear this for going out in the evenings I apply it a good few hours before leaving the house as a prefer the mid to end range of the perfume.
One of the highlights of the perfume for me is the bottle, I think it is amazing it appeals to the part of me that was a teenager in the mid nineties, who spent all her spare time trawling through little shops admiring Tarot cards and bags of pebbles seeking enlightenment.
The bottle is a beautiful midnight blue glass orb with sun, moon and stars embossed into it, the lid is gold coloured plastic and pulls off to reveal a spray button. To preserve the life of my perfume I keep it in its box, and only admire it when I take it out to put some on.
I paid around £15 for my 100ml bottle of eBay about a year ago, and it is lasting me well, I have only took the top off.
In conclusion, although this perfume starts out as a nasal assault it ages gracefully leaving me with a rather attractive feminine scent.
Thank you for reading.
Summary: A dramatic opening to a perfume that fades gracefully.
