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.
Released as part of the Beat the Heat summer collection, Glittering Blue from Arcana Wildcraft is a “blue” take on the Glittering White perfume oil.
So, if this collection was released in July, why do you talk about it now, you ask. Well, I bought it in October, so I couldn’t have posted it any earlier than that. Anyway, Glittering Blue wears great in winter and spring, too. With the current temperature swings ranging from the frosty 0 °C (32 °F) in the morning to the splendid 18 °C (64 °F) in the afternoon, I thought I’d give this perfume oil some more wear time.
Arcana Wildcraft Glittering Blue review
A cooling blend of tart blue lemonade, iced lemon bundt cake, creamy blue musk, a drizzle of blue chamomile, and Glittering White (cold peppermint, sugar cookies, marshmallows, white chocolate, vanilla musk).
These are wicked, wicked times. When coronavirus is all over the news, we all need to find a safe haven. I’ve found mine in perfume. Here’s a review of Sixteen92 perfume oil Wicked. It was first released in autumn 2017 as a seasonal scent but it has become so popular that it was moved to the general collection and is now available pretty much throughout the whole year.
Sixteen92 Wicked – the review
Three vanillas, dark aged patchouli, almond buttercream.
Sometimes you need a kick in the bum to start writing long-overdue reviews. Sometimes they’re really not pleasant but other times they come in the form of perfume. Arcana Craves released the Strawberries Crave collection just over a week ago, so I thought I’d better post a few reviews of the perfumes I’d tried way, way back.
As I said the Part #1, these perfume decants were purchased by me (or received in swaps) in the last four years. I’ve already used up or destashed all of these Strawberries but I did try to review them in a coherent manner. These reviews weren’t meant to be published, so please excuse the lack of original photos, and any weird turn of phrase or inaccuracy.
I hope you find these Arcana Strawberries Crave reviews helpful!
