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.
One of Arcana Wildcraft‘s 2020 releases, Love & Sex aka Valentine’s collection, is actually a re-release of an older collection(s). This range features 8 naughty scents that tickle your nose (and your imagination). These were sent as a PR gift along with my Arcana Craves order (a review of which should be up soon, too).
During the quarantine, I was stuck in my tiny, lovely flat away from my family, my usual haunts, and – as luck would have it – my camera charger, too. This meant I had no way of actually taking these photos until the lockdown was over. Not being able to photograph is such a first-world problem and really unimportant in the grand scheme of things but it is something I love, so I felt much better after the lockdown was over, when I could walk more freely around the neighbourhood and take photos if the inspiration stroke the right chord. The whole thing also made me count my blessings and just truly appreciate what I have. Anyway, I hope we’re on the path to a better future and better selves now.
The Valentine’s collection can be found here. Each perfume costs $26 USD and is vegan, as well as cruelty-free. Samples are not available at the time of writing this post.
Arcana Wildcraft Tart
Sweet lemon cakes, fluffy coconut frosting, and a dash of bergamot.
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.
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!
