Wow, September was a month and a half! It was a whirlwind of events, some good, others less so. I needed to take some time for myself and focus on other areas in my life. Now I’m back to reviewing indie scents.
Old description: By far, our most popular scent! Magnetic, mysterious, and exceedingly sexual in nature. A blend of exotic Indonesian oils sugared with vanilla. New description: Our signature scent, our first perfume: deep, rich earthy notes swirled with vegetal musks, sugared vanilla bean, and dark spices.
Hello there! You’ve probably noticed already that I’m quite the fan of Arcana Craves, the more fun and playful spin of Arcana Wilcraft. I bought three of these scents, while the fourth one was a gift with purchase. They’re available here for about $18 USD each.
Without further ado, let’s go to the reviews!
Apples Crave Vanilla
Wild apples and green apples with delicate vanilla, sensual musk, and white amber.
Hi! I hope everyone’s doing well. I’ll be honest here – I don’t have any special intro to today’s post. These are some old Nocturne Alchemy perfume oil decants/samples that I enjoyed wearing last year and this summer. I’d love to explore more of this brand’s olfactory offerings but (cheaper) international shipping is not available at this point. If you’re in the US, feel free to let me know your favourites in the comments below or on my Instagram profile.
Below you’ll find NAVA Art of Love reviews of Blue Chamomile Lavender Dolphin, Holy Grail, and Mariamne.
One of Arcana Wildcraft‘s 2020 releases, Love & Sex aka Valentine’s collection, is actually a re-release of an older collection(s). This range features 8 naughty scents that tickle your nose (and your imagination). These were sent as a PR gift along with my Arcana Craves order (a review of which should be up soon, too).
During the quarantine, I was stuck in my tiny, lovely flat away from my family, my usual haunts, and – as luck would have it – my camera charger, too. This meant I had no way of actually taking these photos until the lockdown was over. Not being able to photograph is such a first-world problem and really unimportant in the grand scheme of things but it is something I love, so I felt much better after the lockdown was over, when I could walk more freely around the neighbourhood and take photos if the inspiration stroke the right chord. The whole thing also made me count my blessings and just truly appreciate what I have. Anyway, I hope we’re on the path to a better future and better selves now.
The Valentine’s collection can be found here. Each perfume costs $26 USD and is vegan, as well as cruelty-free. Samples are not available at the time of writing this post.
Arcana Wildcraft Tart
Sweet lemon cakes, fluffy coconut frosting, and a dash of bergamot.
