What's Katharine McPhee's Favorite Perfume?

04/19/2007 at 11:00 AM ET

The former American Idol-er may be “Over It” on her new album, but she’s crazy in love with Japanese designer Hanae Mori’s new Magical Moon fragrance. This scent is not for the clean green tea- or crisp cucumber-loving among us; it’s sexy, sweet and very rich, with notes of the night-blooming osmanthus flower, star fruit, vanilla and musk. And in keeping with its shout-out to the mystical powers of the moon, it’s blended in vats lined with blue moonstone and bottled only during a full moon. The Eau de Parfum 1-ounce spray is $65 on

This is news why? For what it’s worth, mine is Chanel #5.

I love Kat McPhee! Her new album is amazing. I’ll have to check out this fragrance!

faith on

well, the fact that this is kat’s favorite perfume is not enough to send me running for the store with cash in hand; but i do love trying out new perfumes in general, so i’ll have to remember to check this one out next time i’m at the mall.
however, i find it unbelievable that they say it’s “bottled only during a full moon.” give me a break…

Hanae Mori Magical Moon is my favorite perfume! I get tons of compliments everytime I wear it! I love Katherine McPhee too!

JDP on

Where can you buy this stuff at discounted cheap prices is the real question? I’m not paying overpriced Nordstroms.

Laura S. on

I care! I am obsessed with this fragrance, too! I got it as a gift and every time I wear it people ask me what it is.

I know if I met kat, she would give me “Mystical powers”


alexa on

I love Kat and this perfume

Kat McPhee got it right! Hanae Mori Magical Moon has become my every day fragrance. It’s worth every penny and more! I recommend everyone go out and get some of their own.
