Fragrance Quick Story

This house is all natural, but leans way more eastern than western bear that in mind. If you don’t like the smell it will stay on your skin. I know a lot of people turned off by the base layers in these.

Fragrance in my opinion compared to Perfumes Notes

There classic citrus musk opens the fragrance. Again amazed that this can be a top and a base. This is more jungle tropical than hawaiian tropical. Thai jungle the coconut is not the tanning butter your used to it is all of the coconut the water kind. Mixed with the green rind. I am definitely calling this a jungle floral. Heart: citrus musk remains strong you must like this smell for Hiram Green. The sillage is better than most HG to me. I still have two more to try from the house. It gives off a narcotic floral from about two feet away. Base dry down it all the citrus musk.

  1. This is a gorgeous, intoxicating fragrance. I own This one, Slowdive, and Arbole. I will be buying a bottle of Hyde in my next Luckyscent order and I see they have a new scent out called Vivacious. I will have to get a sample of that one.

    1. Vivacious is on the way as far as the others Moon Bloom is the only one I don't have yet. Vintage 2019 is still directly available from him. It is amazing. It's got a reminiscent top of a vintage Shalimar done with naturals.

    1. Arbole is seriously so so good it will give you soft woods. Moon Bloom is good I still have yet to get a bottle but offers more florals. Wherever you buy just make sure you get a sample of the other. Hiram does do sells where it's actually pretty affordable vs. Lucky scent when you buy two bottle for free shipping. It's a really fun house to get the discovery set from you will probably hate Hyde, but I'm telling you what he did in it as a composition is remarkable.

    2. Therapeutic Fragrance excellent!! I just had a cart full at luckys for Arbole, slow dive and moon bloom. Will go to Hirams website. Thankful for your prompt response sir. Keep us sniffing 😂👍

  2. Ordered a sample of this along with a few other white floral samples (Jasmine Antique, Champs Lunaires, and Flo Mortis all by Rogue perfumery) and all were excellent. However Moon Bloom is absolutely intoxicating, creamy, heady , and natural smelling – I can't seem to get enough of it and it might just be one of the best creamy white floral I've smelt !!
    Not to take credit away from the other samples they were also some of the most realistic and artistic compositions I came across in recent years and trust me I own a LOT of white florals like Intense Tiare, Estee Tuberose Garenia, Mancera Velvet Vanilla, Kai Kai etc… but ever since discovering Hiram Green and Rogue Perfumery my Montales and Mancera just ended up smelling a lot more chemical compared to them. On my skin Moon Bloom smells a lot like a really expensive sunscreen but not the type you put on at the beach … but like you described , the type of smell when you're foraging/tracking through the tropical lush dark green jungle of Asia and then you caught a whiff of some mysterious wild tropical white flower in the air from a distance that reminds you and make you think of sun screen but you know it came from flowers !
    It is relatively pricey but not ridiculously priced, it is worth it's price and I can't wait to save up for a full bottle !! Thank you for your review 🙂

    1. Wow, great take on this beauty. Since he always has in stock I usually buy direct from him on Black Friday. I know a ways away but with as much perfume as I buy I have to save everywhere I can.

  3. I adore this perfume, and this house as a whole. To me it’s the best tuberose ever. I can’t believe there are not more reviews out there! Dilettante is another fantastic white floral. I own 4 bottles of Hiram Green and thinking of a 5th one. You have great taste 😊

  4. I totally agree! He hardly gives any bottles away thus not many reviewers. I have paid for all of mine and show my love for the house that way. I could own the entire collection easily. I really do want to get Vivacious will see if he gets me again on the Black Friday sale this year:)

  5. I love Moon Bloom! I received a sample and after one day of wear, I was hooked. I picked up a full bottle from Lucky Scent last month. I'm not much into compliments, but you will get compliments with Moon Bloom. I ordered a bottle of Slowdive last week and I can't wait to get it.
