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.
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!
If you’re reading these lines, chances are you already know about Arcana Wildcraft. Arcana Craves is a more playful sister brand of the OG Arcana. As they say, “[Arcana Craves] take[s] different versions of single notes and blend them with our creative inspiration.” Fun and eclectic, the resulting blends are often fruity and/or foody, but some go beyond that into unusual territories (Vanilla Craves Terror [review upcoming], anyone?).
This post is a collection of Arcana Craves scents that I’ve tried over the past four years. I asked the brand owner whether any of the perfumes had been reformulated. She explained that the formulas remained as they were during their previous run.
All these perfumes were purchased by me in the last four years. Some of them I have already used up, and some others I have destashed because they weren’t my thing. When I was writing these Arcana Craves reviews, I didn’t intend to publish them online because most of them were discontinued anyway. Now, however, they’re slowly coming back, and so are my reviews, slightly edited.
I hope they make your choice easier. Stay tuned for more posts as I have some more brewing on my computer. 😉
Today I present the company that’s mysterious and hilarious, poetical and political. It’s the one that intrigues me the most, a source of endless inspiration, curiousity, and wonderment. This is Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and they make amazing perfumes.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is a perfume company from North Hollywood, California. They describe their business and products as “extraordinary scents for extraordinary people”. A short and succinct description, just as most people like it. However, the people behind this four-word brand name (BPAL) aren’t just making perfumes, they create stories based on various pieces of literature or film, combining both classical literature and fantasy novels. Films and paintings.
This post’s focus will be on their Yule 2016 collection that went live on 5 December 2016 and is available until 13 February 2017. This limited edition offers a wide variety of typical Christmassy scents, as well as strange aromas you’ve never dreamt about, at least not in perfume form. Don’t hesitate to check out the shop and pick your new favourite scents!
