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.
While loud fragrances seem to get the most attention, it’s also worth turning to quieter perfumes. Like finding haven in a storm. BPAL’s Mouse’s Long and Sad Tale is like that – unassuming, mousey, but you might just end up loving it if you get to know it better.
BPAL Mouse’s Long and Sad Tale Review
Vanilla, two ambers, sweet pea and white sandalwood.
Every spring, Nocturne Alchemy (NAVA) release a plenitude of colourful, bright perfumes that embody the cheerfulness of springtime. One of the most popular collections seems to be the Bastet’s Spring Ice Cream, so I imagine that its resurgence is good news for plenty of NAVA fans.
I’m still a NAVA newbie and therefore a lot of scents are completely unknown to me. That’s why I’ve opted for decants to test them out. Please keep in mind that these were purchased in 2018 and they were aged for half a year before I went on to review them. As always, YMMV! These perfumes are not available all year long, so do keep checking the NAVA website for updates.
