Hello hotties! Today’s review is going to come from the new Queens Of Snow and Air collection from Arcana. This collection is based upon an obscure fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm and it’s just a wonderful and whimsical collection of goodness now available at The Rhinestone Housewife.
Astrid’s Diadem: The Queen of Air’s regalia. A bright sparkler of Madagascar vanilla, Bourbon vanilla, sugared lavender creme, citron, lemongrass, peppermint, and a touch of stately patchouli.
In bottle: Mostly fruity with slight spice.
Wet on skin: Up front is the citron and lemongrass with just a whiff of peppermint hovering in the background.
Dry on skin: As this oil dries down the citrus amps just a bit at first, and then the sugared lavender creme slides in with almost a marshmallow vibe. After a bit the citron settles down and the vanillas come out to play. There is just the lightest of whiffs of the patchouli that hovers at the edge of this scent.
Verdict: Wow, this is a stunner, an absolute stunner of a perfume oil. I’ve been wearing it non-stop since it came in. It’s a gorgeous warm and grown up scent and not foodie at all. It’s like getting a hug from a fabulous lady you want to grow up to be like. Like Auntie Mame!
