These are wicked, wicked times. When coronavirus is all over the news, we all need to find a safe haven. I’ve found mine in perfume. Here’s a review of Sixteen92 perfume oil Wicked. It was first released in autumn 2017 as a seasonal scent but it has become so popular that it was moved to the general collection and is now available pretty much throughout the whole year.
Sixteen92 Wicked – the review
Three vanillas, dark aged patchouli, almond buttercream.
Sometimes you need a kick in the bum to start writing long-overdue reviews. Sometimes they’re really not pleasant but other times they come in the form of perfume. Arcana Craves released the Strawberries Crave collection just over a week ago, so I thought I’d better post a few reviews of the perfumes I’d tried way, way back.
As I said the Part #1, these perfume decants were purchased by me (or received in swaps) in the last four years. I’ve already used up or destashed all of these Strawberries but I did try to review them in a coherent manner. These reviews weren’t meant to be published, so please excuse the lack of original photos, and any weird turn of phrase or inaccuracy.
I hope you find these Arcana Strawberries Crave reviews helpful!
Arcana Wildcraft’s Echolocation is part of their Coast of Cascadia summer collection. If I remember correctly, the collection was first released back in 2014, and it returned in 2018 and 2019. This collection is inspired by the Oregon coast, the home of Arcana.
Arcana Wildcraft Echolocation – the Review
How whales find one other. Ambergris and amber resin with ruby grapefruit, sweet guava, saltwater, vanilla pods, and the merest hints of patchouli and vetiver.
Boasting fruity and salty notes, Arcana Wildcraft Echolocation instantly caught my intention. I guess I was still high on Lammas and wanted to get more of that sweet, sweet grapefruit. Not to mention that grapefruit’s become my favourite citrus fruit, so it was only natural that Echolocation would appeal to me.
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.
