Arcana Craves Reviews part #2

Sometimes you need a kick in the bum to start writing long-overdue reviews. Sometimes they’re really not pleasant but other times they come in the form of perfume. Arcana Craves released the Strawberries Crave collection just over a week ago, so I thought I’d better post a few reviews of the perfumes I’d tried way, way back.

As I said the Part #1, these perfume decants were purchased by me (or received in swaps) in the last four years. I’ve already used up or destashed all of these Strawberries but I did try to review them in a coherent manner. These reviews weren’t meant to be published, so please excuse the lack of original photos, and any weird turn of phrase or inaccuracy.

I hope you find these Arcana Strawberries Crave reviews helpful!

Solstice Scents Foxcroft

Hi everyone! Today we’ll be looking at one of the first Solstice Scents’ perfumes I’ve owned, Foxcroft. It’s also quite possibly my first atmospheric perfume.

Solstice Scents Foxcroft – the Review

Decaying leaves, rich black soil, dry leaves, fall air, woods, chimney smoke.

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.
