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.
Thanks to the Australian retailer Femme Fatale, I had already tried a couple of Solstice Scents perfumes* when I decided to place my very first order with Solstice Scents. Boasting with an extensive library of olfactory delights, the brand sure doesn’t make the decision process easy. For my first order, I went with a couple of fan favourites, as well as some perfumes from the Spring Collection that appealed to me.
*Those perfumes were Foxcroft and Nightgown – let me know in the comments below if you want to read another Solstice Scents review!
Most people love perfumes. Most people probably love unicorns. What wouldn’t we give in order to see one? Who wouldn’t want to see this magical creature? What if I told you that while unicorns might not exist, their idea has been encapsulated in perfume oils?
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, a brand I have already introduced over here, released a special collection in the summer of 2016. They called it Art of the Unicorn and dedicated it to eternal hope that doesn’t fade even during the darkest times. We all need a reminder that not everything is violent, dark, confusing, and these perfumes serve as a delightful manner to counteract all the negativity.
So far, two parts of this series have been released so far and the third one is still waiting in the Lab for its time to come forth and shine. There can never be enough hope.
