Today from the Cardboard Priority Mail Box of Squee: Hay Moon
Beth at BPAL is preggers, and made up two Lunacies last month, forgetting she'd already made one when she made up the second. Her pregnancy brain (gods do I remember that) is the world's gain, as both Mead Moon and Hay Moon are GORGEOUS. When I put Hay Moon on this morning, Sir said , "Whatever that is, I really like it. I really, really like it. Wear that one a lot." So that's a high endorsement; he has a good nose.
Hay Moon is:
Hay absolute, tall grasses, dry honey, mallow, cardamom, amber, and wheat.
See why I had to get both? I mean, honey in BOTH of them. Doomed as doomed can be.
In the bottle: Cardamom, an almost chemical scent. Someone at BPAL.org said it smelled like "old-skool OFF with the orange cap," and I can get that.
Fortunately, wet: Amber waves of grain, I kid you not. The amber is at the forefront, then comes the cardamom. As it dries, the grasses and wheat come out, and beneath it all is the dry honey. It's just guh.
Both Hay Moon and Mead Moon are perfect late summer scents; you can almost smell the heat coming off the fields. If you want to know what Travels with Gan smells like, it smells like Hay Moon with sweat.
