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.
La Vague. The Wave. A painting by Georges Clairin that inspired Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab when creating a scent of the Salon: Traveling Exhibit collection, exclusive to Pretty Indulgent.
This August has been the hottest month of 2017 and it made me steer towards lighter, fresher scents. La Vague is on the fruity side of the fresh category, something that promises an elegant floral sweetness and gives you a lively kick out of an otherwise dull, extremely hot afternoon.
White peach, lily of the valley, jasmine, rose, iris, osmanthus, tangerine, white wine grape, and cream accord.
