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.

Melvita Indigo Oil

I believe I’ve always taken good care of my tresses but I started taking haircare more seriously once I had bleached and dyed my hair back in July 2018. Prior to bleaching, I could use only a tiny amount of oil on my scalp before it would make a mess. Even now when my hair is of medium-to-high porosity, using such products is risky business. I always worry I’ll have to spend ages trying to get oil out of my hair.

In October 2018, Melvita released haircare products formulated with indigo oil. Melvita makes this oil from a plant called Persicaria tinctoria that is a source of indigo dye. As you can see from my photos below, the oil isn’t actually indigo but raspberry pink (just like my hair was!).
