These two perfumes by Arcana Wildcraft have turned out to be quite the fan favourites! Haint has a long-standing fame already, having returned in 2018 after a few years of “radio silence”. Mongolian Death Worm is a completely new scent that was released for Halloween 2019, and is one of the first perfumes from this collection that has been sold out. So what are they all about?
These perfumes were sent to me by Arcana Wildcraft as a gift, however I have another bottle of Haint that I have purchased myself. All opinions shared are my own.
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.
What does Anthropophagia, a popular Arcana perfume smell like? Pear? Wait, what is “anthropophagia” and what does pear have to do with it? As a non-native English speaker, I rarely come across words like this, so I first had to check out its definition: cannibalism. Okay, fine. I’ll let Arcana explain the rest:
Born out of a conversation about vices which were bafflingly left out of the seven deadly sins. To the early Catholic Church, envy was TFM, but… cannibalism? Apparently just fine. Hence this is our concept of a refreshing palate cleanser offered between courses of the ‘long pork.’ Vanilla-infused pear sorbet with sugarcane, white amber, and a drop of French cognac absolute.
