NAVA: Vampire Chocolate Bat

Are you ready for Halloween? Yes, it’s only September but as I get older, I notice that time runs faster every year. I swear that I’ll blink with my eyes twice and it’ll be late October already. So, yes, it’s time to carve a pumpkin, take out your Halloween decorations and find a scary film to watch. The only thing that’s missing? A Halloween perfume.

In 2017, Nocturne Alchemy, or NAVA, released a perfume called Vampire Chocolate Bat. As part of a limited-edition collection, it was available for around $24 until 31 October before it disappeared. Who knows – perhaps it will return for this year’s Navalloween.

Vanilla bean fleck, Kobalt, Crystalline, Tahitian vanilla, French vanilla and a spot of vanilla-infused black patchouli, cacao, cocoa accord and dark chocolate truffle.

Arcana: Pirouette

If you follow me on other social media (namely the subreddit r/indiemakeupandmore), you have probably seen me gush about Arcana’s Two Finger Ballet. This is still one of my favourite perfumes of all time but in October, Arcana Wildcraft released a new autumn collection focused on marshmallows and “and the fights they get into”. A very special scent was also included in this collection – Pirouette. It’s described as “a graceful union of two of Arcana’s most beloved scents”, Two Finger Ballet and Twirling the Pearl. I’ve never tried Twirling the Pearl but I like Arcana’s lavender note and with TFB added to the mix, I knew I couldn’t pass on this scent.

The Description

Two Finger Ballet and Twirling the Pearl perform a pas de deux over a base of deep labdanum, satiny sandalwood, and an extra twirl of sugary French lavender absolute. Dedicated to Autumn of Opalimne Designs who came up with the genius idea and drew the beautiful label art.

You can buy Arcana Pirouette in various online stores: Arcana Wildcraft store on eBay (currently not available), Nui Cobalt Designs for $20 USD and Femme Fatale Cosmetics for $21.60 AUD.
