It has a very heavy and long lasting smell but I adore this !! So does my husband.

This makes me think of mid-summer when the night comes late and the moon seems to rise in a matter of minutes. The air is a little close after a sultry, sunny day, but it is beginning to cool and freshen. There is a breeze and nearby some rich red over-blown roses still on the bush amidst damp green undergrowth. And there is some honeyed sweetness, like sipping a Sauternes. A little goes a long way, and the body lotion seems just as potent as the perfume. I could never wear this one every day, but just occasionally, it is like a drug that takes me to another time and place.
If you like rose-chypres or woody-rose fragrances, give this one a try. This is what I wanted FM Une Rose, Guerlain Rose Barbare and SL Rose de Nuit to be (to name but a few). I think it's really shabby the way The Guide slated this one, probably because they felt it derivative of Sinan, which it is, down to the bottle, but who cares. As its relatively new it doesn't smell like you walked out of the 1980s.

in couple of words- a metallic,silvery,rose/honeyed,extremely potent, most feminine and gorgeous chypre there is....!!
Packaging quality?hm...let's see- after a month a little spritzer started spraying the liquid all around and leaking....so and now every time I want to put it, I have it on my carpet,hands and hair...so, it is a shame for a quality perfume like this to have such a poor mechanism...but it only happened to the 1.7 oz edp which I bought cheaply....and my older 3.3. oz bottle is just fine...
I know I have to stock up because, no matter what, this is always going to be ultra modern and wonderful perfume alongside with Diva, L'Arte di Gucci,Eau de Soir,Picasso...and all the other miracles made in perfume heaven...
absolute staple in my book...

Strangely dusty. It's almost exactly an Indian incense I remember from way back, mostly powdered wood base compacted into a crumbling orange/brown cone and smelling vaguely of citrus and flowers. It's a bit like walking into an import store. Dries down much the same only softer. Interesting, but not sure it's worth getting more.

This perfume comes off strong at first sight. It can be intimidating, difficult and hostile, and it has a strong tendency to be disliked at first spritz. However, after developing a weird, gradual relationship with the fragrance, one comes to realize it has a hidden, undiscovered inner kindness that makes it beautiful and unique as a result.
It took me a few months to finally adapt to it.
DO NOT spritz too much of it, as there's a thin line between it being subtle and absolutely overwhelming, and spraying too much will only deceive you.
This is definitely a strong, long-lasting signature perfume. I have finally come to adore it.

A signature scent which lasts. Love it.

This was one of the fragrances that the consultant at the Perfume Museum thought would appeal to me. She was right on with five of the seven she recommended. This smelled great on paper, so I purchased a miniature.
I so wanted to like this. I'm a big chypre fan, especially of vintage chypres. This doesn't work for me at all! It reminds me a little bit of Agent Provocateur (which I like a lot), and also teases my memory of something way back in the late '50s or early '60s -- possibly Max Factor's Hypnotique, but I'm not sure.
There is something nice in this, but it's overpowered by something less than nice. It's perhaps too sweet, too strong and somewhat metallic or chemical. After about a half hour, it smells like dirty laundry or deodorant trying to cover perspiration and not quite succeeding. Ugh!

On me, it reminds me of the mens cologne samples my grandmother gave me as a child to pretend with. Nothing feminine about it; glad I got this as a sample and did not purchase.

can't believe i haven't reviewed this. downright the most romantic and luxurious floral fragrance i've had - and i'm not even a rose fan. i'd say it's more aromatic than the traditional chyphre. and it's not for the demure - very outspoken, and ultra feminine. i get compliments when i wear it.

I am giving this perfume a 4 because it is very strong, long-lasting, and downright strange. However, I personally love it. Putting it on helps me concentrate on my work, but I only wear it when I'm working from home because it is sure to spark allergies in some people.
Anyhow, here's the story of how I discovered this perfume. I was helping my coworker fix a jammed Xerox machine at work. I was amazed at how awesome the copier toner smelled (I have a thing for chemical smells). As it turned out, I wasn't smelling the copier toner; I was smelling my coworker's perfume! I raved about her perfume so much that she gave me a small bottle of it for a gift.
My husband can't stand this smell, and as I mentioned above, I can see that it has a chemical/machinery/plastic element that would not appeal to most people. That's why I wear it at home, when I'm on my own and have to concentrate on my work and myself. It's a great mind-clearer for me.

My favourite perfume of all time! I"m so mortified that some people have given it only one lippie. I guess perfume is so subjective that you either love it or you don't. Also, different scents smell differently on different people. To give you an idea, I love warm, almost musky smells, think No5, Hermes Eau de Merveilles, Amarige so this is perfect for me. The review who said it's a mature perfume is right though, it's very grown up and ladylike. I get so many compliments when I wear it. The downside is the price, makes me wince! I get it on eBay for less, you just have to shop around. It's great quality though and one little spray will stay on you or your clothes until you wash it off.

When I spritz this on, the air around me smells strongly of roses and nothing else.
On my skin, it is a whole different story: The first time I tried it, it smelled as if someone had mixed Eau du Soir with Diorissimo and added some nutmeg to the mix. It just smelled too busy, as if it had too many notes clashing at once.
After the top notes (mainly the lily of the valley and some citrus) evaporate, I get roses in full bloom, nutmeg and honey on a beautiful chypre base.
There is an animal quality to Soir de Lune, which renders it sexier.
I cannot fail to appreciate the quality of its ingredients, its evolution and tenacity. I find it a very mature and elegant scent. Feminine and very sexy in an assertive way.

I have tried samples of this perfume so many times and couldn't decide whether to purchase or not. I agree with many of the other reviews that it is a love it or hate it scent. It is strong and overwhelming but has amazing staying power, the original card that the SA gave me is still in my purse smelling amazing! I finally purchased yesterday in SpaceNK for £65 with a free body lotion, great for travelling! I doubt this will be a daily spritz for me but nonetheless it was unusual enough for me to add to my collection. A word of warning, when I sprayed it on my neck I had a real problem removing the bright yellow staining from my new white shirt.

I tried this today and it has a striking resemblance to Agent Provocateur, but it's more linear and much more expensive. AP is nicer in my opinion. The packaging looks cheap and something my 7 year old niece would like. Very disappointing.

This fragrance for me is like several different ones, trying to blend in a harmonious accord and never succeeding to do so.The drydown is powerful pungent honey that is not sweet, but the one that provokes the image of a stray animal, left in the rain in autumn(sharp,pungent).Eau de soir is a masterpice, though.

Oh my! I went out this morning in desperation to find my HG fragrance and had a list of perfumes to try, this was on my list. It smelt quite nice sprayed lightly on a paper strip but the minute I put it on my wrist it was totally overwhelming and so strong! The fragrance is not horrible but it is just too much to me for a perfume. I would not like to be sitting next to a table with someone wearing it in a restaurant that's for sure! If you are interested in trying this make sure you do just that. Try it and wear it for a while before you considere buying it. It's expensive but for the amount you would need to use I imagine it would last a lifetime! Definitely not for me and I certainly wouldn't want to be in a confined space with someone else wearing it.

I agree with the reviewer who said this is a mature perfume. It opens with a burst of zesty citrus. It is a complex fragrance and I love it the more I sniff it. The rose combined with the deep chypre base is stunning. It is very well blended and lasts a long time on my skin.
I found the rose in Soir de Lune to be like the rose in Ta'if. When I first smelled both I knew the scent but could not identify the rose until I knew rose was in the fragrance.

I love the other two Sisley perfumes, yet this one is one that I don't think people would appreciate on an elevator with closed doors.
It is close to eau de soir, but sharper, maybe honey, but a definite chypre. I tried it on today at Neimans, but it has dried and I am not crazy for it, but I appreciate it.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
This fragrance opens as a burst of sharp aldehydes and a strong, maple syrup note. These two notes vie for attention as the fragrance develops, tipping the scales up and down, never finding a harmonious balance. It smells as if I've sprayed two fragrances which don't quite blend (maybe Chanel No 5 and AG Sables - apologies to fans of either). Gradually the two fragrances begin to merge and a bright, synthetic, musky note surfaces, then turns violently metallic and takes over the entire composition. Hours later, when it all dries down, I smell soap and the far-off echo of a green, honeyed chypre. This stage admittedly is quite pleasant. But why go through all that? And if I may kick Soir de Lune on it's way out the door - the moon bottle looks like it was sketched in the back of a cab on the way to a design meeting.

This is my HG fragrance, became addicted to it as soon as it came out. It's a beautiful feminine, mature, sexy, sweet, sensual, mysterious and somehow radiant scent. It's got a strong opening, which may put some people off, but after some time blends with the skin scent and becomes a deep sweet scent. This fragrance is a fusion of peach, bergamot, mandarin, lemon, coriander, nutmeg and capsicum pepper oils, May rose centifolia and mimosa flower absolute, jasmine, lily of the valley, iris, moss, musk, honey, mimosa, honey, sandalwood and Indonesian patchouli. I also love the honey component of this scent. The bottle is definitely beautiful and well thought of, but not too convenient to carry around. Would repurchase this without even thinking.
