Stora Skuggan Moonmilk

Stora Skuggan Moonmilk

The Scoop
In 1555, the Swiss naturalist Conrad Gessner went caving in the Alps and discovered Moonmilk - the creamy pearlescent substance that leaks from limestone and dolomite. Moved by its beauty, he wrote, “At night, the moon shines into the cave so brightly the light itself seems to take form like a mist. It gathers in the ceiling and makes the limestone stalactites glitter and gleam, dripping tears of white liquid into puddles on the rock floor.”

Inspired by Gessner’s ode to liquefied minerals, Stora Skuggan created Moonmilk – a muguet scent that opens with lime and black tea. At first sniff, it’s a bright and fresh floral; classic and tart and surprisingly green. But with wear it settles into an easy, milky concoction - a lactonic sandalwood that sparks visions of molten crystals pooling in swiss caves. It’s a sunny scent with a nighttime shadow. Unexpected, heady, and deeply intriguing.
