Arcana Echolocation

Arcana’s Echolocation is part of their Coast of Cascadia summer collection. If I remember correctly, the collection was first released back in 2014, and it returned in 2018 and 2019. This collection is inspired by the Oregon coast, the home of Arcana.

Arcana Echolocation – the Review

How whales find one other. Ambergris and amber resin with ruby grapefruit, sweet guava, saltwater, vanilla pods, and the merest hints of patchouli and vetiver.

Boasting fruity and salty notes, Arcana Echolocation instantly caught my intention. I guess I was still high on Lammas and wanted to get more of that sweet, sweet grapefruit. Not to mention that grapefruit’s become my favourite citrus fruit, so it was only natural that Echolocation would appeal to me.

BPAL Mouse’s Long and Sad Tale

While loud fragrances seem to get the most attention, it’s also worth turning to quieter perfumes. Like finding haven in a storm. BPAL’s Mouse’s Long and Sad Tale is like that – unassuming, mousey, but you might just end up loving it if you get to know it better.

BPAL Mouse’s Long and Sad Tale Review

Vanilla, two ambers, sweet pea and white sandalwood.

NAVA Bastet’s Spring Ice Cream Review

Every spring, Nocturne Alchemy (NAVA) release a plenitude of colourful, bright perfumes that embody the cheerfulness of springtime. One of the most popular collections seems to be the Bastet’s Spring Ice Cream, so I imagine that its resurgence is good news for plenty of NAVA fans.

I’m still a NAVA newbie and therefore a lot of scents are completely unknown to me. That’s why I’ve opted for decants to test them out. Please keep in mind that these were purchased in 2018 and they were aged for half a year before I went on to review them. As always, YMMV! These perfumes are not available all year long, so do keep checking the NAVA website for updates.

DHC Q10 Mini Set Review

DHC is a Japanese brand that is mostly famous for its Deep Cleansing Oil. I’ve seen people rave about it on Reddit, so I wanted to find out what’s so special about it. 🙂

The DHC brand was founded in 1970s by Yoshida-san. He connected traditional Japanese herbology and skincare properties of Spanish olive oil. The brand follows the “wabi-sabi” philosophy – it believes in “finding beauty in imperfection” and loving your skin just the way it is, together with all of its imperfections.

DHC Q10 Mini Set review bunnyechoes

I bought this mini set from a friend who travelled to Japan. You can find it on Amazon (here) but in Japan, it cost around €7. This plastic, see-through pouch contains the Deep Cleansing Oil, the Mild Soap, the Q10 Lotion, and the Q10 Cream, all in mini sizes. There should be enough product for one month’s use or so, but like always, your mileage may vary.
