Nui Cobalt Designs Fearless Lassie

Some perfumes don’t appear to be special or complicated but somehow, they find their way to your heart. Fearless Lassie by Nui Cobalt Designs is like that.

Nui Cobalt Designs is an American indie brand that creates perfumes, candles, and talismans for “the Magickally-minded”. Some of their perfumes are meant to be used as ritual oils, whereas others, like Fearless Lassie, are “just” perfumes. Or are they?

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.

Arcana Anthropophagia

What does Anthropophagia, a popular Arcana perfume smell like? Pear? Wait, what is “anthropophagia” and what does pear have to do with it? As a non-native English speaker, I rarely come across words like this, so I first had to check out its definition: cannibalism. Okay, fine. I’ll let Arcana explain the rest:

Born out of a conversation about vices which were bafflingly left out of the seven deadly sins. To the early Catholic Church, envy was TFM, but… cannibalism? Apparently just fine. Hence this is our concept of a refreshing palate cleanser offered between courses of the ‘long pork.’ Vanilla-infused pear sorbet with sugarcane, white amber, and a drop of French cognac absolute.
