Arcana The Old Forest Review

Next to last in our reviews of the Arcana collection, Queens Of Snow And Air we have The Old Forest at The Rhinestone Housewife.

The Old Forest:  Smoky resins with Bourbon vanilla bean, wild honey, dragonsblood, dark musk, kush, a hint of fir needle, and a drop of antique vetiver.

In bottle-Soft pine and honey.

Wet on skin-The kush and fir needle are right at the front door, knocking three times like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory.  Once those settle down  the resins and vanilla come out to play with just a hint of dragonsblood.

Dry on skin-This dries down to a pretty sophisticated blend.   The vetiver is a very posh vetiver, smooth a rich smelling and combined with the vanilla and honey it’s absolutely decadent.   The addition of the dragonsblood is genius and really elevates this blend to Omega 13 level.

Verdict-Although I enjoy the smell of dragonsblood, it’s not something I’ve ever been able to wear.  I’m happy to report that this smells lovely on me.   Two thumbs up!

These are available for a limited time only at The Rhinestone Housewife so get them while you can!
