Eternal Crescent perfume oil by Ajmal


Post by Erica Golding


Greetings and scented salutations!

Today I’m coming clean about the seduction of sexy bottle design. The latest object of my desire is an over-the-top crystal bottle, glimmering with excessive luxury. I was so tempted to hunt it down unsniffed! Lucky for me, with humble gratitude to my dear friend Barbara, I have a rare opportunity to test the fragrance housed within this faceted eye-gasm.

My skin is humbly graced with:

Eternal Crescent perfume oil by Ajmal

Crescent Ajmal FragranticaFragrantica

Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Sandalwood, agarwood (oud), spicy notes, bergamot, mus, fruity notes

Based on the vague, limited information I was able to dig up, I was expecting a deep, resinous woody oudh fragrance. Instead, I am greeted with a natural white floral bouquet, glittering with a lift of sunshine, all atop a sensuous feather-soft base. There is a gentle hint of genuine oudh depth, but it is an accent and does not dominate. This perfume possesses the strangest quality of being a light, easy fragrance, though it doesn’t hide its dark side. It almost leans toward a clean aroma, but the humming base confirms that Eternal Crescent is not innocent by any means. The blossoms are natural and delicate. Bergamot sings with a lifted contentment, never sharp or overly bright. The musky base is quiet with just the right warmth and richness, the sandalwood is subtle and smooth. Oudh is but a patient, tender sigh. The overall aroma is one of natural sensual bliss. I think it’s just safe enough that I can pull it off at work (worn lightly).

Can I even tell you how ecstatic I am?! This perfume is just as beautiful and unique on my skin as its flamboyant flacon suggests. It’s ridiculously expensive and hard to acquire, but now that I know how glamorous it feels to wear it, my desire is exponentially soaring! This isn’t just some ho-hum perfume in a sexy package. This is a liquid work of art worthy of its faceted throne.

Have you ever fallen in love with a perfume bottle without even knowing the scent? Did you blind buy, or did you test first? Were you disappointed or were you blown away with joy?

Until next time, I wish you all serenely fragrant lovespells!

  1. Have I ever? More like have I ever not? :o) I am a big ol’ bottle ho. Thankfully my taste is very tacky, so the bottles haven ever been horribly expensive; think along the lines of the Juicy Coutures and the Victoria Secret Tease series. I also love the Illamasquas but only have one so far.

    Funds have changed the last few years, so I don’t collect for looks any more, but if money were no object, I’d be snapping up the M Micallef’s, and I am so sad that Amouage quit making theirs is in the cool, more individual bottles, although I think they do a good job with the basic design of the one they settled on.


  2. Hi Erica,
    I love perfume bottles and have purchased a few frags without sniffing, based on the bottles and posted reviews from my perfume pals. I have not been disappointed. The middle eastern CPOs have the most interesting bottles of all!

  3. What a perfect review of this incredible regal beauty! It is exactly as described. My love for this came from a tiny 1ml vial with about 2/3 already gone, yet plenty enough for a test and then it haunted me for a year. I came ever so close to paying the full boat. When I saw the bottle, the bottle lust was overwhelming, but the perfume was an even bigger lust. This creation is fit for a princess, or royalty, or you wishing to feel like royalty. It is very much a nod to regal feminity, yet so powerful as you describe. The throne of oudh is bedecked in flowers and spices and exotica. I am so beyond thrilled you love this creation as much as I do. It is a magical attar, and not your sultan’s attar. Thank you Erica for this magic review, I am just so excited to read this.


    • I will never forget your unboxing video from when your glimmering bottle first arrived. I have been enchanted by the vision and your impressions ever since! Experiencing the actual fragrance was a journey to another world. Love youuuuu!


  4. Ha, that bottle is crazy! Love it. I fell in love with the Vol de Nuit propeller bottle which is still my favourite bottle of all time, fortunately I absolutely love the fragrance also.


    • The Vol de Nuit propeller bottle is so dreamy! I especially adore the blue one that they used for the shimmer powder, with the atomizer bulb and all. Swoon!
