Van Cleef & Arpels Collection Extraordinaire Moonlight Rose Eau de Parfum Review

Calling all lovers of rose scents, Moonlight Rose is the next addition to Van Cleef & Arpels’ luxurious fragrance line, Collection Extraordinaire. With its smoky infusion, it’s not an ordinary rose perfume. The intoxicating floral chypre fragrance exudes elegance and refinement, offering a unique and opulent experience, unlike any other rose fragrance you’ve tried before.


This Fragrance Smells Like…

The Moonlight Rose fragrance opens with a touch of pink peppercorn and geranium, known for their soft rosy aromas, followed by juicy blackcurrant. These notes seamlessly lead to the fragrance’s heart, where the essence of Bulgarian and Taif roses takes centre stage. These extraordinary rose varieties are celebrated for their intense and intoxicating rose scents that allow a subtle honeyed scent. As the scent settles on the skin, it unveils its chypre base notes that consist of earthy oakmoss and smoky patchouli, enveloped in the fruity sweetness from juicy raspberries.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Van Cleef & Arpels is renowned for its exquisite luxury jewellery, showcasing the beauty of some of the world’s most precious and rare gemstones. It’s no surprise that their perfume collection also celebrates the invaluable qualities of nature. Each fragrance in the collection highlights one of the most beautiful natural ingredients in perfumery. True to its name, Moonlight Rose draws inspiration from the enchanting rose note. The fragrance captures the intense and flamboyant essence of roses, complemented by smoky spices and honey. The result is a unique, sophisticated scent that will leave a lasting impression.

If you’re searching for a new signature rose scent that radiates class, sophistication and luxury, Moonlight Rose will captivate your senses.

The combination of floral aromas and warm, rich and sweet undertones reminds me of a sweet rose liqueur infused with smoky spices. The perfume strikes a perfect balance and creates an exquisite blend with a captivating olfactory experience.


Is Moonlight Rose Unisex?

Rose notes are traditionally associated with women’s fragrances. However, what sets Moonlight Rose apart is its exceptional interplay of smokiness, sweetness and earthy undertones. This unique composition transcends traditional boundaries and elevates the rose note to a level of sophistication that has the potential to appeal to all genders.


What’s The Longevity Like?

The Eau de Parfum is incredibly powerful and has impressive longevity. While a regular Eau de Parfum usually lasts around four to five hours, I could still detect traces of the rosy smokiness on my skin long after that time.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

The luxurious experience begins at the packaging. When you lift the lid of the sleek white and pastel green box, you’ll find an elegant lacquered black bottle inside. Holding it, you can feel its weight and see its refined design. A brown ribbon necklace with a silver diamond-shaped charm, subtly engraved with the iconic VCA lettering, adorns the bottle’s neck. When you run your fingers over the label, you’ll notice that even the label is made from thick, high-quality paper. The bottle exudes elegance and sophistication, making it an exquisite addition to any dressing table.
