NAVA Vampire Vanilla Bat

Spoopy season is upon us! Get your candles ready, buy all the pumpkins and take your scarf out of the closet – autumn and NAVA’s Halloween update are (nearly) here! You might remember my old review of Vampire Chocolate Bat, a chocolatey patchouli concoction. This time, however, I’ll review its sister scent, NAVA’s Vampire Vanilla Bat.

Nocturne Alchemy: Vampire Vanilla Bat

Vanilla Bean fleck, Kobalt, Crystalline, Tahitian Vanilla, French Vanilla and a spot of Vanilla-infused Studio created Patchouli.

Arcana Echolocation

Arcana’s Echolocation is part of their Coast of Cascadia summer collection. If I remember correctly, the collection was first released back in 2014, and it returned in 2018 and 2019. This collection is inspired by the Oregon coast, the home of Arcana.

Arcana Echolocation – the Review

How whales find one other. Ambergris and amber resin with ruby grapefruit, sweet guava, saltwater, vanilla pods, and the merest hints of patchouli and vetiver.

Boasting fruity and salty notes, Arcana Echolocation instantly caught my intention. I guess I was still high on Lammas and wanted to get more of that sweet, sweet grapefruit. Not to mention that grapefruit’s become my favourite citrus fruit, so it was only natural that Echolocation would appeal to me.

NAVA Vampire Chocolate Bat

Are you ready for Halloween? Yes, it’s only September but as I get older, I notice that time runs faster every year. I swear that I’ll blink with my eyes twice and it’ll be late October already. So, yes, it’s time to carve a pumpkin, take out your Halloween decorations and find a scary film to watch. The only thing that’s missing? A Halloween perfume.

In 2017, Nocturne Alchemy, or NAVA, released a perfume called Vampire Chocolate Bat. As part of a limited-edition collection, it was available for around $24 until 31 October before it disappeared. Unfortunately, it’s not part of this year’s Navalloween release but maybe it’ll return in the future.

Nocturne Alchemy: Vampire Chocolate Bat

Vanilla bean fleck, Kobalt, Crystalline, Tahitian vanilla, French vanilla and a spot of vanilla-infused black patchouli, cacao, cocoa accord and dark chocolate truffle.
