Happy Fragrance Friday everyone!
Today, I’m coming to you with another exciting fragrance launch and a bottle so “out there”, it deserves it’s own page here on StyleScoop.
Say hello to MOSCHINO STARS, a new to South Africa (it launched in the last week of August) Eau Da Parfum by MOSCHINO CHEAP AND CHIC.
An unusual name for a fragrance, but you know MOSCHINO, always pushing the boundaries and going totally over the top!
Just look at the bottle design!
I mean, who but MOSCHINO would create a fragrance that’s lid features a cluster of shooting stars (or as they call it “a bouquet of stars, like the constellation Cassiopeia” ) and still make it look chic?
And it smells pretty good too!
Moschino Cheap and Chic STARS is a white floral scent that opens with top notes of citron granita, may rose and peony. At the heart lies lily of the valley, orange blossom and jasmine, before developing into a base of driftwood, vetiver, ambroxan and amber.
On my first spritz, I instantly picked up on the zesty citrus note and could faintly smell the peony note coming through. As it developed the Jasmine came through quite strong – which I looove. You’ll often find me sniffing against my neighbors wall, just taking in the overpowering Jasmine scent that comes from his massive jasmine hedge.
The closest thing I can think of that this scent reminds me of is Bobbi Brown’s Bobbi’s Party fragrance, but I’d say MOSCHINO is nicer because of the prominent citrus notes, that blend so beautifully with the jasmine notes.
While I do like this scent, it’s not very different. Not as “out there” as the bottle design, but then again, perhaps that’s better to have a very wearable scent that’s very feminine and a perfect scent for spring into summer.
If you’re looking for a zesty white floral that’s not sweet or too intoxicating, you’ll probably love MOSCHINO Cheap and Chic STARS. Personally, the jasmine alone would make me buy this scent, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was totally drawn to the bottle!
Yes the lid is too big, yes it’s totally impractical, yes it’s named “cheap” and who wants that, but be honest now, how can you not have MOSCHINO Cheap and Chic STARS in your fragrance collection?
