Chateau de Chambord

Brand: Moonalisa

Scent Description: Made from raspberries, blackberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and cognac to create an all-natural Black Raspberry liqueur. Indulge in Moona’s new scrub concoction consisting of white chocolate cake scrub enveloping a Chambord ripple made of natural raspberry fruit fiber, black raspberry seeds, and scented with natural and artificially scented oils of cognac EO, raspberry, vanilla oils, with a fusion of natural citrus and just a touch of spice. Good enough for any King or Queen!

  1. This review is for 🧁Cotton Candy Cupcakes🧁description from the Moonalisa site to follow… (“Ok, I said I never would but…I have. These irresistible cotton candy oils that beg to be blended with a vanilla butter cake scent. So here she is, all fluffy and pink, so sweet she will give you a toothache when devoured!! NOM!!”).
    This smells incredible in the bottle and wet on the skin. Unfortunately after about the first 5 minutes that wonderful smell changes to a rancid butter scent tinged with plastic. Ahh eff you skin chemistry! I suspect the vanilla butter cake, with an emphasis on the butter, isn’t working on my skin. This was a blind buy and it seriously breaks my heart that it’s a fail. This is the most true to life cotton candy scent that I’ve come across. I’m going to let this age for several months and see if anything changes. I’m not too hopeful that things will change but I’m gonna try it anyway. Well now I know in the future to avoid Moonalisa’s vanilla butter cake note. I am so jealous of the people who’s chemistry works with this! I wonder what I can layer with this to combat that butter note? Anyone have a suggestion?

    1. I forgot to add that I get about 4-5 hours of wear out of Cotton Candy Cupcakes🧁. The first 4 hours are dominated by the rancid butter with a smidge of plastic. The final hour morphs close to the skin and I can finally smell a bit of a gourmand vanilla but the funk of the butter/plastic is still lurking.

  2. Chateau de Chambord was part of my first order with Moonalisa. I have to say that this smells very close to Chambord Liqueur in the bottle and I’m impressed! I’m amping the honey note in this and I’m hoping that things will develop with some aging. For now, this is a slightly boozy blackberry tinged honey perfume on my skin. I think the other notes keep the “berry” part of this from turning artificial/plastic on my skin. I rested this for 5 days after arrival before cracking the perfume oil open. I’m excited to see how this will layer with some of my other oils. At first I was worried that my skin would gobble this up as it smelled a bit faint. But this seems to be a perfume oil that needs a little time to “bloom” on the skin. After 20 minutes or so the honey calms down and this is a DEAD RINGER for Chambord Liqueur. **this perfume oil was reformulated according to Moonalisa’s website**

    1. I forgot to add that after about the initial 20 minutes or so that it takes the honey to calm down, this scent wears the same and remains unchanging until fading out somewhere between 4 to 5 hours on my skin.
