Ladies today i have to tell you something, i proudly announce that i am a Moschino addict, so the day i saw this one on sale I bought it on impulse without even sniffing it.
The first impression you have about this scent is that it sends to your nose a beautiful
fruity,refreshing summer like feeling with a slight note of citrus and a lovely surprise in the dry-down.
The first puff left me the impression of a freshly squeezed orange and a slight note of grapefruit. The feeling it lets behind reminds me of a beautiful summer morning! It’s quite refreshing and cheery. There was even a point when i wondered if it will be like Happy by Clinique ? … but later i found out that it’s nothing similar with that.
Later when the citrus note cool down i could smell a hint of a red-current note. and a slight note far in the distance of a flower note, Something like Roses. This is quite different. And halfway towards the dry down you can smell a soft and powdery note, that make the fruity notes to calm down and settle.
This scent in the dry-down brings a powdery soft and very yummy fruity floral that is being embraced by cedar, musk and a hint of pepper notes. It’s a very yummy and wonderfully cheery sunny summer scent, yet it’s also very comforting and relaxing.
To my nose it’s not like Happy by Clinique – Happy is far more linear whereas this fragrance is going through several stages of development that are fun to puff and sniff! It’s also nothing like another orange ‘suspect’ that I own and love, Liberte by Cacharel — Liberte has patchouli & sandalwood notes that give it a smokey sensation.
Overall this is a fun to wear and a real happy scent for those ‘pick-me-up moments’. Sniff before purchase it is a must.
I wore this fragrance last summer and love, love, loved it. It’s fresh and more green than floral to my skin. Thanks for reminding me about it for this summer…do you know of other more “green, fresh” scents like this one?

Very original idea for a blog….
Now I have two more scents to search for – thanks for visiting!
This is the first time I have ever read such a detailed description of a perfume – it reminded me of a wine review – delicious! Thank you.
You have an obvious passion for fragrances. Do you work in the business? If not…you should. You’re a good sales rep for any of these products. I’d buy from you…if I were a connoisseur of perfumes. 🙂
This is such a creative and interesting concept! I enjoyed reading your descriptions. You are very creative and you put the scent right before your readers! Thanks, too, for checking out my blog. I appreciate it.

Poetic writing about perfume. How delightful. Thank you and thanks for the follow. I write romance/suspense. I will learn more about perfume through your post because scents mean a lot in creating a richer scene. Please leave a comment next time with a dash of your scent.
Awesome! All senses at work with a plus I don’t know how to label yet! You must be very awake and very sensitive to sights,sounds and smells. Nothing EscapesUnlike the things you describe which are volatile and ephemeral! I love the way you do it!
Thanks for following my blog! nb.
This is my current perfume as i got it for Christmas! I was so happy, its hard to find in Australia 😦
thanks for visiting and following my trip through life, love the perfume blog, my senses are what guide me through life.
I love Moshino!

I love that you keep coming back for my new posts. Thank you so much for your support. This is such an amazing blog. My favorite perfume currently is JoY. I’m addicted to spraying it especially at night since the fragrance relaxes me. It’s so wonderful to read your connections with others. I started a youtube channel only yesterday to launch videos of my fashion and style shoots also featuring new music from the artists i support on my show on http://www.AvALiveRadio.com . Please come subscribe http://www.youtube.com/jaxcouture and connect. I’m always interested in not only prospective new talents but meeting a new friend.
I have never seen this perfume before! Thanks for the description , I love fruity and refreshing scents. Have you ever tried the Sunset heat by Escada. If you have, do you get the same vibe? And one more thing, what the price of the Moschino perfume?

I’m not hugely into perfumes, but this one sounds magnificent & fresh! Have you ever smelled Demeter’s “Dirt”? Loved that one in the 90s… 🙂

Great description! I think I’ll try this out.
Thanks for following my new blog on learning how to be happy (http://theantsofhappiness.wordpress.com). I read through a few of your posts and I really love the way you write so freely, almost a stream of consciousness description of fragrances. It’s funny because I think I’ve got one bottle of Miyake somewhere in my bathroom and I rarely pay any attention to perfumes, but your descriptions are so evocative that I enjoy them simply for the poetry of it. Sniff on!
You have a wonderful way of describing the perfume. I can almost smell the scent as I read your blog.
My fragrance was Aroma Fit by Lancôme (orange, mandarin orange, coffee and carrot) until they stopped making it…then I discovered Happy by Clinique. I think I will love “Love Moschino”. Thank you for recommending it!
Young, fresh & playful as Cheap & Chic Moschino clothing line, although I personally prefer the parent brand (Moschino) for its a bit more sophisticated looks. Great article!!
