Hello, autumn! It’s time to review a perfume by Arcana Wildcraft – and this one symbolises autumn in (probably) the best possible way. If you’re interested in atmospheric scents but still prefer warm, foody scents, Leaves Falling Like Rain is for you.
In honor of our beloved Pacific Northwest and the best time of the year. A comforting base of brown sugar, caramel, gingersnaps, and cappuccino is sparked off with hints of vintage patchouli, hyssop, mullein, and white pepper.
Leaves Falling Like Rain Review
Freshly applied to the skin, cinnamon and ginger cookies come to the fore. They’re bright, spicy, and juicy, just like the real thing. In the background, I can detect the cappuccino and tease out the caramel syrup. The patchouli hangs out in the back as a supporting note, adding some depth to the blend.
When I first got it, it was all patchouli (think NAVA’s Vampire Vanilla Bat) and I was afraid it would stay that way. However, a long rest helped a LOT and now I smell anything but the patchouli. The cinnamon & ginger cookies are rather strong, whereas there’s just a smidge of non-acidic coffee. Honestly, I can’t believe how well it works.
Overall colour impression: brown orange.
The gingery note lasts about an hour or two, then it turns into a more generic sweet & spicy scent that blends nicely with the cappuccino accord. The patchouli is more like a base note, it doesn’t become too loud, unlike when I first tried it (right after buying it). I’m not familiar with hyssop and mullein, so I can’t say what they’re like.
Arcana Wildcraft’s Leaves Falling Like Rain becomes a skin scent a few hours in. I’d say it’s very noticeable for the first three hours and then it mellows out until it’s barely there, say, seven hours in. That works just fine for me. 🙂
Where can you buy it?
Leaves Falling Like Rain is available at Arcana Wildcraft for $26 USD. Now you can also buy a sample for $6 USD if you prefer to test it out first. Arcana brought back sample sizes after a long time and I think this is a great way to try many scents without committing to full sizes from the start.
