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.

NAVA Crystalline

You might have come across my review of NAVA Crystalline in this post where I compared it to two other NAVA vanillas – Kobalt and Spooktacular. My tiny sample has evolved into a full-sized bottle, so I felt Crystalline deserved its own place on my blog.

You can buy Crystalline (and other Studio Limited Originals) on the Nocturne Alchemy website for $29 (5 ml).

Review: Crystalline by NAVA

A unique and very special Egyptian vanilla resin perfume. Crystalline – for the signature vanilla scent it creates, one solid scent of an uplifting vanilla from the stigma of a vanilla orchid especially for this perfume.

NAVA Vampire Chocolate Bat

Are you ready for Halloween? Yes, it’s only September but as I get older, I notice that time runs faster every year. I swear that I’ll blink with my eyes twice and it’ll be late October already. So, yes, it’s time to carve a pumpkin, take out your Halloween decorations and find a scary film to watch. The only thing that’s missing? A Halloween perfume.

In 2017, Nocturne Alchemy, or NAVA, released a perfume called Vampire Chocolate Bat. As part of a limited-edition collection, it was available for around $24 until 31 October before it disappeared. Unfortunately, it’s not part of this year’s Navalloween release but maybe it’ll return in the future.

Nocturne Alchemy: Vampire Chocolate Bat

Vanilla bean fleck, Kobalt, Crystalline, Tahitian vanilla, French vanilla and a spot of vanilla-infused black patchouli, cacao, cocoa accord and dark chocolate truffle.

Vampire Chocolate Bat on a skull scarf. The only appropriate setting. Okay, bats and/or vampires would be even better.

NAVA: Vanillas Round #1

When it comes to perfume reviews, Crazy Perfume Lady is someone I look up to. Why? Her knowledge is extensive and her vocabulary is simply much wider than mine, but I try and do my best to relay my own thoughts about perfume. Her comment on r/indiemakeupandmore about different NAVA vanillas sparked my interest and I knew that one day I’ll try at least some of those fabled fragrances. So, here’s my first post about Nocturne Alchemy Vanillas.
