With the imminent snowstorm, I thought this would be a great opportunity to share my impression of Arcana Wildcraft’s Snow Witch collection before it really gets too warm. The Snow Witch collection has been released in late November 2020. It consists of 6 perfume oils priced at $26 USD each. While you can find all of them here on Arcana Wildcraft’s website, some of the scents have been sold out already. You might find them at other retailers or on the aftermarket.
I actually bought decants of 4 different scents that piqued my interest, and later I bought a full size of (spoiler alert!) Moonrise because I liked it that much. If you’re interested in Ritual and Embers, read the Redolent Mermaid’s review. You know I trust her opinion.
Without further ado, here are the reviews of the Arcana Wildcraft Snow Witch collection!
Hello there! You’ve probably noticed already that I’m quite the fan of Arcana Craves, the more fun and playful spin of Arcana Wilcraft. I bought three of these scents, while the fourth one was a gift with purchase. They’re available here for about $18 USD each.
Without further ado, let’s go to the reviews!
Apples Crave Vanilla
Wild apples and green apples with delicate vanilla, sensual musk, and white amber.
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.
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.
