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.
You might remember my review of Echolocation, one of Arcana Wildcraft‘s scents from the Coast of Cascadia collection (You don’t? Go read it here). But you might not know that I also have two other perfumes from this range. I bought Cascadian Mermaid last year after hearing raves about it, and I won Goofy Foot in the Redolent Mermaid’s giveaway.
Yes, it took me a long, long time to review them but the wait is finally over. Grab yourself a drink, get cosy, and read a short review of these Arcana Wildcraft Coast of Cascadia olfactory postcards. 🙂
Fresh coconut and cardamom with green notes of spearmint, fresh basil, and one drop of vetiver grass.
Today I present the company that’s mysterious and hilarious, poetical and political. It’s the one that intrigues me the most, a source of endless inspiration, curiousity, and wonderment. This is Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and they make amazing perfumes.
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is a perfume company from North Hollywood, California. They describe their business and products as “extraordinary scents for extraordinary people”. A short and succinct description, just as most people like it. However, the people behind this four-word brand name (BPAL) aren’t just making perfumes, they create stories based on various pieces of literature or film, combining both classical literature and fantasy novels. Films and paintings.
This post’s focus will be on their Yule 2016 collection that went live on 5 December 2016 and is available until 13 February 2017. This limited edition offers a wide variety of typical Christmassy scents, as well as strange aromas you’ve never dreamt about, at least not in perfume form. Don’t hesitate to check out the shop and pick your new favourite scents!
