Bonfires at Dusk by Arcana Wildcraft is one of those perfumes that take you on a journey through your memories and dreams. It’s perfect for frolicking about in autumn and winter, but it’s also suitable for warm summer nights.
Woodsmoke, sweet beeswax, Oregon lavender, sandalwood, charred juniper, and the scent of swiftly appearing stars.
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.
