Sigh. This is why learning about The Lost Perfumes is dangerous.

But I thank you for the introduction anyway. Plus, congrats on the solid being a score...I do love it when solids turn out to be a Good Thing.

I spotted some Moon Drops cologne while doing a little research on vintage perfumes. It's at Quirky Finds if you are interested. (not affiliated)

Anne

When I got to the frosted orange lipstick, you had my full attention. Yikes! I remember those days.

So, did you get any top notes, or any sort of development, from the perfume? Did it smell oily? And do tell, are you going to actually WEAR the pendant. We want to know.

Perfumaniac

Hi Anne - I could smell some of the fruit notes (warm and creamy rather than sharp or too sweet). The only development I could get, though, was a deepening of the BEAUTIFUL base notes — sandalwood, etc. As for wearing the pendant? I actually wore it on my birthday with a black blouse (although I wore Bandit perfume). It's cute!

Perfumaniac

Hi JoanElaine. It's on my list of wants!

Charlie Red is my favorite fragrance, I receive compliments every time I wear it, it has a delicious aroma and I prefer it over any other.

Susan

My late mother wore Revlon's Moondrops in the mid-1970s! It was a delicious, womanly scent! She also wore (around that same time period) two other fragrances very similar to Moondrops - Estee Lauder's signature Estee and Avon's Unspoken. All gorgeous scents!

Though Moondrops and Unspoken are long discontinued, I personally have Estee Signature in my collection and enjoy wearing it especially in cold weather.

Perfumaniac

It's so nice to be able to remember someone based on their scent. Thanks for sharing this, Susan!

I find this article very wonderful and informative. I like the name they put on this new product line, it keeps me thinking of an exquisite and extraordinary fragrance.

Robin

Sounds lovely! Right now I'm pretty much obsessed with 70s scents that have that earthy floral thing going on: Babe by Faberge, Estee, Ivoire, and the greatest and most stunning of them all: Ginseng Perfume by Jovan...dear lord I find it so exquisite.

In looking at my 1984 H&R Guide, Moon Drops seems to be a close derivative of Estee (which mothered most of these other scents that I'm loving). Do you find that Moon Drops connects palpably with the other "sweet florals" in that H&R map column, like Estee, Ginseng (have you tried it?), Babe, Yendi, etc.

Ruth Peltason

Is this elephant pictured in the ad? I can't see the image well enough

Perfumaniac

Hi Ruth, The elephant is not in the ad; its a locket with solid perfume inside.

Maureen

I would really love a bottle of moondrops perfume not the solid...Revlon needs to bring it back in ... It would sell big time...

VIRGINIA STONER

I CANT UNDERSTAND WHY REVLON WOULD DISCONTINUE SUCH A FABULOS FRAGRANCE.
I REMEMBER I BOUGHT A GIFT FOR A FRIEND OF MOON DROPS IT WAS IN A BEAUTIFUL TIN BOX WITH PERFUME AND COLONGE AND I THINK LOTION. BEAUTIFUL

Virginia Stoner: First: awesome name. :-) Second, yes, I have the same question about a multitude of fragrances I love: WHY REFORMULATE??? Or DISCONTINUE???

M. Vermeulen

Debbie Martin
