Moments 1 by Christi Meshell is one of those fragrances you have to experience to understand where it's co...ming from, it's a tantalizing combination of smells and notes unlike anything I have ever experienced.
Anyone who has familiarized themselves with the House of Matriarch fragrances, that have smelled Moments 1, will recognize and say to themselves, Oh! yes, this has Christi Meshell's signature touch written all over it.
She has a unique ability to use notes that are unheard of in perfumery, and you would think her fragrances would be a big, giant disaster, but somehow, she masterfully makes her fragrances individualistic and amazing.
For those of you have smelled her Albatross and Orca fragrances, Moments 1 is very similar yet different from those, it has that distinctive oceanic, marine feel, with some woods and spices, to add to the characteristic ambiance.
I get a bright, airy, sedative, with a touch of an animalic smelling jasmine, that tantalizes a salty, crystalized, oceanic sea salt, and a burnt, rough, wasted charred oak wood.
Then a charming, deep scarred, resinous, blooming incense, barely touches a woody, grounded, brown tinged vetiver, and a slightly spiced, bitter, sweet clover.
I get the Jasmine, Incense, Sea Salt, Charred Wood, Sweet Clover and Vetiver, it opens up with a pure, natural sea salt, and a fresh, with a touch of dirtiness jasmine, the sea salt is strong, the jasmine is mild.
After an hour the sea salt dissipates, the jasmine softens, in comes a smoky, charred oak wood, and a warm, aromatic incense, the charred oak wood is strong, the incense is mild.
After five hours the incense and smokiness dissipates, the charred oak wood softens, in comes a earthy, grassy vetiver, and a dry, herbal, sweet clover, the vetiver and sweet clover are mild.
Moments 1 is a very watery, white floral, a touch astringent, woody, unisex, dark pungent leather and spicy nuances, with soft musky and citric undertones fragrance.
This can be worn all year round, I get average projection and good longevity, I really liked Moments 1 quite a bit, fantastic job as always Christi Meshell, 4/5 Stars.
