MAGICKAL MEANINGS OF INGREDIENTS:
MILK/BUTTER/CREAM ~ Nurturing, soothing, eases troubled relationships. Goddess energy.
CHOCOLATE/COCOA ~ Lightens emotions, evokes feelings of love.
SUGAR ~ Attracts love, luck, sweetness and riches. Lust inducing, wishes granted.
AMBER ~ Fertility, creativity, love, luck, riches.

 

When night has fallen and the full moon is your very own night light there’s nothing cozier before bedtime than a mug of deliciously steamy hot chocolate. Relax and enjoy the soothing comforts of powdered cocoa whipped within hot milk accord, sweetened with caramelized sugar, then dusted with dreamy drifts of powdered sugar.

 

It is said the Sandman

comes to sprinkle stardust in your sleepy eyes

but Lady Luna

has far better delights for your dreaming mind.

She treads upon moonbeams

cloaked in velvet night

wearing a crown of shimmering light.

She comes to gild your imaginings

in moondust and the magic of Midnight.

So sleep without a care

you’ll scarcely know that she is there

as she sings to you of far-off lands and adventures to be had.

To live a thousand lifetimes

before the dawn breaks

and wakes you in this mundane life.

Close your eyes and

Lady Luna will send you on your way

with a cloud of moondust and the magic of Midnight.

I think this is a perfect bedtime scent!  I'm a fan of hot cocoa-type scents but this really is the pure product for sure.  And it seems to cling to me better than Cocoa Snuggle did, even as soft and powdery as it is.  But I can totally see slathering this and then drifting off to sleep, all snuggly and chocolate-y...

:bed4:

 

But also, it would make a good layering note for other things if you want to sweeten up another scent a bit.

I have this on right now, to snuggle my daughter to sleep. It really does smell like powdered cocoa! I feel like it's calling out for a little Aja or honey, my skin seems to have gobbled up the sugar and it almost smells like some kind of organic not-yet-sweetened cocoa powder, like the kind I buy for my kids instead of some sugary Swiss Miss. 

i think the company was Karma Sutra, they made some honey dust body powder? I want to mix this with that and powder my whole body with some giant fluffy puff.

See, this makes me want to try it!  Chocolate goes too sweet on me very often. (...off to put in in my shopping cart!). 

 

Does anyone have have an opinion about the amber in it? Is in just in the background?

I tried Moondust Cocoa the other day and didn't find the amber to be prominent at all. On me, it was a smooth, sweet rich cocoa and cream scent. This is what I had wanted Cocoa Snuggle to smell like. I think that the myrrh in Cocoa Snuggle made the cocoa seem flat or dusty on me. Moondust Cocoa smells like a rich, warm cup of cocoa with some sweet cream mixed in. It's really comforting and smells delicious!

@Eve the amber wasn't something I'd have noticed if I wasn't hunting for it. And it was sweeter in the vial for sure, I got a "dry" cocoa vibe, not sweet or cream. But, I can wear Sugared Milk and Honey, & Lick of Cream without having the dairy amp or go sour, you know both Dari Gold and Rocket Powder have major sweet cream vibes. So my sweet cream needs are HIGH, I just don't get much of it here, and my skin turns down sugar, I believe. If you turn up sugar, it could be perfect for you. This skin chemistry thread is pretty cool, I think I'm similar to @Invidiana, except most citrus works phenomenally well on me, and most-all civit/animalistic Musk types instantly turn to cat pee on me.

I can't wear civit/animalistic musks either, except in Odalisque, which is tonquin- that smells amazing and doesn't turn on my skin.

Yes; the amber didn't really come out of me at all - it was a consistent evocation of hot cocoa powder on me.

@Kayla, @Eastwood22 and @luna65

 

Thanks!  So it seems at least one bottle will need to be re-homed with me :)  I am such a chocolate lover but am unlucky  in that love when it comes to fragrance.

I hope that you love it as much as I do! I bought a full bottle unsniffed, and am so happy that I did. :)

I'm getting a rich dark chocolate type of hot cocoa with just enough sweetness to keep it from being bitter. This is going to be a great bedtime scent. I accidentally bought 2 bottles when ordering and I'm glad I did. Saves another order for a back up bottle :)

Ugh I want to love this so much but I can’t. I love it in the Vial but as soon as it makes contact with my skin, the sugars amp in a bad way. Certain sugars do this weird piercing but in a fuzzy way type thing on me. It’s why I can’t even wear the Sugared that my face is on much to my disappointment. The cocoa is glorious while wet but the powdered sugar makes it read a bit dusty to me after dry down mainly because the sugar amps so much. But I washed it off as well as I could a few minutes ago and though I got the majority off, a sheer remnant of it remains on my arms and THAT smells amazing. I can almost see repeating the process every so often just for the part that lingers after scrubbing. And I don’t think I’ve ever said that before. Lol
