What would the bird that stared at the moon not give to have a whiff of its precious essence that has been encapsulated in Zen Moon Essence
Zen Moon Essence is a new limited edition of the original Zen from 2007 by Shiseido, which comes out in late summer of 2014. The fragrance is inspired by Japanese culture —the full moon as a symbol of intangible and ethereal beauty. The fragrance is announced as mysterious, luminous and a magnetic contrast of bright flowers of jasmine and magnolia.
Like the original, the new composition is also signed by Michel Almairac. The scent is floral-woody-ambery. It opens with accord of rose accompanied by bergamot, pineapple, grapefruit and pear. The heart captures intense notes of jasmine, magnolia, freesia, tuberose, violet and raspberry. The base wraps the composition up in patchouli, cashmere, white musk, vanilla and amber.
The standard rectangular golden bottle is decorated with tiny shimmering floral ornaments.
