Coconut, Tuberose, Tahitian Gardenia, Lime Essential Oil & Pink Lotus Attar
Offered as Perfume, Burnishing Glace, Whipped Soap and Sugared Amber Scrub as part of the Summer 2012 Collection
LIME ESSENTIAL OIL MAY CAUSE PHOTOSENSITIVITY AND IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR APPLICATION PRIOR TO EXTENDED SUN EXPOSURE.
DO NOT APPLY IMMEDIATELY AFTER A HOT SHOWER OR NEAR CUTS OR BROKEN SKIN AS LIKE LEMON JUICE, LIME MAY STING!
Nighttime island breeze carries sweet coconut flesh, delicate tuberose blossoms, Tahitian Gardenia flowers, pressed lime juice and pink lotus blossoms. Tropical Moon smells like an exotic beach paradise. It is sweet with creamy white floral notes, a top note of lime and a subtle delicate pink candy note from the pink lotus. Contains real tropical monoi (Tahitian Gardenia blossoms infused in fragrant coconut oil), mouthwatering lime essential oil, pink lotus attar and a blend of fragrance oils. Initial application has equal parts of coconut and tuberose with the lime hovering just above. The monoi and lotus are more subtle supporting notes that add a little complexity. The lime burns off relatively quickly in the leave on formats but does have a gentle presence in the scrub and whipped soap. The dry down is a fairly constant blend of coconut and tuberose without a great deal of morphing that translates as a soft and creamy tropical fragrance.
Tropical Moon is the humid, torrid and sultry cousin of our popular Nightgown perfume. It is a destination vacation in a bottle! You will be transported sea side every time you wear it.

This one begs for a skin test, so don't judge it by cold sniff. In the vial, the lotus is very prominent, which initially put me off. Once it warmed up on my skin, the coconut and magnolia came forward. The longer it wears, the prettier it gets.

I was worried Tropical Moon would be too floral for my liking, but it is not at all. The coconut note is fresh as opposed to gourmand and buttery. To me, Tropical Moon smells like expensive suntan lotion. Angela must be a mind-reader because this is the coconut scent I was hoping for. My only minor complaint is that I wish it lasted a bit longer on the skin, but in these sweaty summer months it is hard to get any scent to stick.

I first tried this in a perfume sample, but it was too florally for me. I had it in an Sugared Amber Whipped Soap scrub. I LOVE the scrub -- it's much more coconut and lime and the scent lingers for a long time. I will definitely reorder the scrub if it's available.

I just tried on my sample of Tropical Moon and I love it! Sometimes I try on a scent and I don't like it right away, but do so after a bit. This scent won me over in an instant!
Upon application, I immediately smelled Gardenia and Coconut, and both notes are beautiful. I'm not a huge fan of either one. To me, gardenia scents smell nasty because they smell fake, chemical-like. Coconut scents bother me because when I put on perfume, I don't want to smell like I'm off to the beach to work on my tan. But the gardenia and coconut in Tropical Moon are beautifully fused together, and each one smells the way real gardenia and real coconut should smell. They floated out of the little sample vial and wrapped themselves around my wrist like a silk bow, slowly enchanting me.
Once Tropical Moon dried on my wrist, the gardenia toned down quite a bit and I picked up a whiff of Lime along with something else--something DIVINE--that I can't identify, so I went to the scent's description to read the ingredients and I guess the unidentified divine scent must be the Pink Lotus Attar, or maybe it's a beautiful combination of all of the ingredients.
Tropical Moon is a WINNER!

If you're a fan of Nightgown, you must try Tropical Moon! Angela is dead on when she describes TM as Nightgown's humid, sultry cousin. The florals are similarly sweet and velvety, and the coconut replaces Nightgown's vanilla and white chocolate. The tart lime is very vibrant at first, but then the perfume settles into something a little more creamy. Yum, what an enticing tropical fragrance!

I don't smell the lime at all. To me this perfume s quite simple, just coconut (not the weirdly artificial kind) and white flowers?. It's very tropical and reminds me of the beach.

Creamy floral-tinged coconut and lime. It's not a loud, heady, overwhelming floral, though. After a few minutes I get more of the coconut, which gives me a strong "suntan oil" vibe. Combined with the sweet, creamy florals and zingy lime, it's very, very summery, and I am really into it.

I got a sample of this because I adore Solstice Scents' Nightgown, a fantastic creamy tuberose/gardenia with white chocolate. Both of these fragrances are sexy and tropical to me, like two sides of the same sultry coin.
These remind me of a Bond Girl on a tropical island- she's wearing Tropical Moon when she's frolicking in the waves in a bikini, and she puts on Nightgown and slips into a slinky dress to go meet James Bond at the casino that evening.
Tropical Moon first smells like key lime- like a mix of the fresh juice and something more concentrated like a cocktail! There's a light white floral note but it’s not overpowering. The tuberose and gardenia are more subtle than in Nightgown, where they are front and center. There’s a little coconutty-sunscreen edge which is pleasant and smells warm and musky like skin that’s out in the sun on the beach. Really pleasant and summery. The more prominent of the floral notes is the lotus attar, which combined with the lime, almost yields a bug spray like effect. I don’t know why but I like it even so.
I believe the hairspray/bugspray notes are coming from the lotus attar, which is a pink version of the white lotus in Cascade of Gold so if you HATE HATE HATED that one you’d probably be turned off from this. I love both.
