Celrynnya Posted August 5, 2013 Share Posted August 5, 2013 Rebecca's Moon Sugar "Maple sugar, lemongrass, sugar (caramelized), Amber (light/sweet); My inspiration for this scent is "Moon Sugar" from the Elder Scrolls games (Oblivion/Skyrim)" Out of my PEs, this was both the perfume I was looking forward to the most, and the one I was the most scared of failing. Rather than cramming as much cake into a PE as I can (my usual tactic), I decided to be a bit more fancy and try to do the proper top note, middle note, base note perfume composition. I really, really wanted it to work. And it does! At least on my skin. From the bottle, it smells like a lush combination of Mara's Rocket Fuel and Breakfast in Bed; lots of dark, toffee sugar with a little amber underneath. Not quite as rich, but certainly related. On the skin, the super-maple-sugar scent tones down a little and is less in your face. The lemongrass is present, but it's not as sharp or as powerfully citrus that I was worried about. It's certainly present, but it melds beautifully with the other notes. It comes across to me as candied lemongrass. It's a nice round scent, sugary without being sickly sweet, caramalized without being maple syrupy, and tangy without being sharp. I think it's the amber that holds it all together so that everything melts into a delicious confection in scent. There's a nice amount of throw without being obnoxious, and even though it's quite a sweet scent it's balanced enough that a lady (rather than a girl) can get away with it. Mara has made me a very, very happy camper. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
