Arcana Craves Reviews part #2

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!

The Battle of Arcana Aquatics: Lammas and Sea Witch

Spring is finally here and with it the wish to wear lighter, fresher perfumes. Aside from stellar gourmand perfumes, Arcana is also known for its aquatic note. Julia, Arcana’s owner, has created a number of perfumes related to water and I’ve taken a liking to them. You can read my review of Nereids here but now it’s time to plunge into a lively river before being washed away into the sea…

Arcana Lammas vs Sea Witch

Lammas was created for The Crone’s Crate that’s curated by Nui Cobalt Designs. This is a witchy subscription box that follows Wheel of the Year and each box celebrates a different Sabbat. Lammas was celebrated in late July/early August, which is when Lammas the perfume was introduced. Once the stocks ran out, the perfume wasn’t available for purchase anymore.

Sea Witch is part of the Halloween 2017 collection that was inspired by nature and featured all sorts of witches (Cottage Witch, Forest Witch, Garden Witch, Hedge Witch, Nocturnal Witch and Sea Witch). This concept is very interesting and I hope Julia revisits it and perhaps expands it, too.
