I’m going to be honest. These three beauties – Camp Willow, Riverside Sleighride, and Sawmill – were purchased about a year ago. I let them rest for the usual 7–14 days, took photos of them, drafted my post etc., but they somehow never saw the light of day on my blog. Today this is going to change. Let me present you three of the Solstice Scents Winter 2018/2019 perfumes! I’ve written to Solstice Scents customer service, and they told me they would reappear in their Winter 2019 release, currently scheduled for mid-December.Continue reading “Solstice Scents Winter 2018/2019”
I fell in love with Fyrinnae Kitten Tummies perfume oil as soon as I first applied it on my skin. I managed to buy a decant (and then a full-sized bottle) from a friend after the first release of this collection back in 2018, and I was upset because it seemed like Kitten Tummies would never make another appearance.
Luckily, these perfumes are back again (and there are many new ones to boot!), so anyone enticed should have a look at the Fyrinnae website.
According to the brand, their perfume oils are vegan and cruelty-free (their musk, leather, and cream notes are synthetic) and they are mindful of endangered botanicals. As they say, “in cases where the real botanical ingredient is endangered or harvesting practices are known to be questionable, we use a synthetic or different origin substitute.”
Kitten Tummies – the Review
Marshmallow, sweet benzoin resin, white sandalwood, sugar, and a hint of myrrh.
You can buy Kitten Tummies by Fyrinnae here for $3.60 (1.5 ml), $12.00 (5 ml), or $18.00 (10 ml).Continue reading “Fyrinnae Kitten Tummies”
Released in August 2019, Arcana Wildcraft Night-Tripping Fairies collection focuses on the fairies from Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It features eight scents, each bright and cheery, but yet distinct. Julia, the creator of these fragrances, extracted many of the ingredients herself, as well as wild-harvested and distilled all plant ingredients labelled as such.
My parents have always gathered various berries and other plants in the wild, including juniper berries and spruce tips. Making anything edible out of them takes literal weeks, so I appreciate the effort and time Julia has put into making this collection.
You can buy Arcana Wildcraft’s Night-Tripping Fairies on their website for $6 (1.11 ml), $26 (5 ml), or $76 (15 ml).
These perfumes were sent to me by Arcana Wildcraft as a gift. All opinions shared are my own.Continue reading “Arcana Wildcraft Night-Tripping Fairies”
You might remember my review of Echolocation, one of Arcana Wildcraft‘s scents from the Coast of Cascadia collection (You don’t? Go read it here). But you might not know that I also have two other perfumes from this range. I bought Cascadian Mermaid last year after hearing raves about it, and I won Goofy Foot in the Redolent Mermaid’s giveaway.
Yes, it took me a long, long time to review them but the wait is finally over. Grab yourself a drink, get cosy, and read a short review of these Arcana Wildcraft Coast of Cascadia olfactory postcards. 🙂
