Arcana Craves Reviews part #1

If you’re reading these lines, chances are you already know about Arcana Wildcraft. Arcana Craves is a more playful sister brand of the OG Arcana. As they say, “[Arcana Craves] take[s] different versions of single notes and blend them with our creative inspiration.” Fun and eclectic, the resulting blends are often fruity and/or foody, but some go beyond that into unusual territories (Vanilla Craves Terror [review upcoming], anyone?).

This post is a collection of Arcana Craves scents that I’ve tried over the past four years. I asked the brand owner whether any of the perfumes had been reformulated. She explained that the formulas remained as they were during their previous run.

All these perfumes were purchased by me in the last four years. Some of them I have already used up, and some others I have destashed because they weren’t my thing. When I was writing these Arcana Craves reviews, I didn’t intend to publish them online because most of them were discontinued anyway. Now, however, they’re slowly coming back, and so are my reviews, slightly edited.

I hope they make your choice easier. Stay tuned for more posts as I have some more brewing on my computer. 😉

Solstice Scents Winter 2018/2019

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. Edit 15/12: These perfumes will be/were released on Saturday 14/12 at 7 pm EST.

Fyrinnae Kitten Tummies

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.”

You can buy Kitten Tummies by Fyrinnae here for $3.60 (1.5 ml), $12.00 (5 ml), or $18.00 (10 ml).

Arcana Wildcraft Night-Tripping Fairies

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).
