Ayao – A whirling cyclone of crisp fall leaves fills the air coupled with slithering wisps of wood smoke, tonka bean and black plum.

In bottle: Wood smoke and something slightly earthy….maybe the swirling leaves?

Wet on skin:  It’s all wood smoke and tonka bean at first. The smoke continues to amp up but then settles nicely into the tonka and just a bit of rich plum.

Dry on skin: The smoke softly wafts into the background and the crisp leaves swirl right up front and they are a great compliment to the plum…..rich and deep.  The tonka bean is the perfect note to finish it off.

Verdict: Deep and rich, without being heavy.  It’s dries down into a totally wearable scent.  Something tells me this will get even better with age. Medium throw and silage.

Caer Ibormeith – The joy and pain of true love and inevitable death: yew berry accord infused black patchouli, swan feather soft vanilla musk, red amber and stout clove.

In bottle: Soft pearly musk.

Wet on skin: The soft musk and clove are the first up and they are gorgeous!  The clove is not strong at this point but does ramp up a bit as of the red amber peeks out.

Dry on skin: The yew berry and red amber are having a party and I’m so glad I was invited! The patchouli is handled with a deft hand and the clove is soft and creamy.

Verdict: I’m quite possibly dead, this is so gorgeous. It really quite lovely, yet extremely unique….I don’t think I’ve smelled something like this before. I’ll definitely be keeping a bottle of this. This could be unisex.  Good throw and silage.

Charon – An ancient memory of Tunisian opium, precious oudh, aged tobacco and chthonic rhus khus.

In bottle: Tobacco and oudh.

Wet on skin: This blend opens with something woody…..maybe the chthonic rhus khus (vetiver)?  The opium and tobacco and right behind.

Dry on skin: The tobacco is really amazingly soft and lush and it’s so, so good with the opium.  The vetiver is used with a very subtle hand here and it really grounds this blend perfectly.

Verdict: Wow, another stunner.  This one is for those of you that want a unique scent that is warm and rich and sexy.  Unisex. Medium throw and silage.

Hekate’s Torch – Often depicted with two torches that allow her safe passage between the worlds, allow Hekate’s Torch to guide you along your path. A light in the darkness: earthen patchouli, apotropaic clove, spiritually uplifting frankincense, Persephone’s pomegranate and illuminated bergamot.

In bottle: Refreshing!

Wet on skin: The bergamot is bring and refreshing with the pomegranate adding a bit of fruitiness as it settles in.

Dry on skin: The pomegranate is really coming to the front and it’s so pretty.  The clove is very soft and hanging around in the background while the frankincense and earthy clove nestle together. Good throw and silage.

Verdict: Typically I don’t love bergamot but this oil seems to have the perfect balance of green, fruity and earthy.  This is so well blended and I LOVE the pomegranate, I’m also betting this will age really, really well!

King of Terrors – The musty shadows of the cemetery, haunted loam and moss, metal sting and arterial spray.

In bottle: Loamy ground.

Wet on skin: I can definitely pick up the musty darkness of loam and moss….this is deep and mysterious at this point. The metallic note has appeared and it’s a very interesting counterpoint to the brooding earthiness.

Dry on skin: As this dries and softens the damp earthiness settles in and mellows into a nice soft earthy musk.

Verdict: A very surprisingly wearable scent that stays close with mid level silage.   Unisex.

La Madama – Offerings of warm vanilla infused bourbon, juicy mangoes, star jasmine blossoms, cigar smoke and a pinch of blessed salt.

In bottle: Bourbon and soft tobacco.

Wet on skin: The star jasmine is right up front but it’s a bit of a foodie version with the mangoes and vanilla…quite lovely! The mangoes become more prominent just as the salt rolls in and gives it just a tiny touch of an aquatic feel.

Dry on skin: The warm rich vanilla bourbon and grounding the fruitiness of the mango and star jasmine. The softly wafting cigar smoke is the perfect compliment for this blend

Verdict: Gorgeous!  It’s so pretty, warm….like an embrace from a good friend – perfect for those that want a close scent. Unisex. Medium silage and throw.

Les Mortes – Still waters, crystal musk, beeswax candles, water lilies, white amber and sweet offerings of coffee and beignets.

In bottle: Water lilies and beeswax!

Wet on skin: This is very aquatic at first with a nice current of crystal musk and beeswax candles swirling around. This stays as a very pretty aquatic scent before it dries down.

Dry on skin: The white amber and crystal musk is absolutely stunning and it’s such a good choice with the water lilies.  As it continues to dry down the sweetness of the beignets appears but do not make this blend foodie.

Verdict: This scent is very interesting, aquatic but with some sweetness and richness that you don’t normally get.  It’s absolutely gorgeous and even though it’s got foodie elements, it’s not foodie in any way. Good silage and throw.

Libitina – A wistful and somber meditation on eternity: smoked amber, dragon’s blood, aged black patchouli, rose hips, cypress, white myrrh and black storax.

In bottle: Patchouli and dragon’s blood.

Wet on skin: Black patchouli, cypress and black storax are right up front….knocking on the door. The smoky amber and myrrh are right behind.

Dry on skin: This is very woodsy, dark and heavy. The patchouli is dark and mysterious but doesn’t take over the blend and the dragon’s blood is handled very gently.

Verdict: If you like dark and resinous blends, with woodsy and brooding notes….this will be right up your alley.  It’s got serious throw and silage.  Unisex.

Simbi – African green musk and violets, falling water, the spark of ozone and lightning struck sandalwood.

In bottle: Soft violets.

Wet on skin: Delicious falling water and violets hit you first….and it’s mesmerizing.  The green musk is just the right support for the violets.

Dry on skin: As this has dried down you get a just a tiny whiff of slightly charred sandalwood.  This grounds the whole blend into a very pretty but not cloying floral.

Verdict: A gorgeous floral but this a floral that anyone can enjoy.  It’s pretty and ladylike without being precious or cloying.  Medium silage and throw.

Thanatos & Lethe – Black opium, poppy flower, kush, vanilla flower, cannabis accord, blue lotus attar, aged patchouli and mimosa.

In bottle: Kushy!

Wet on skin: It opens up green and herby and I think that’s the cannabis accord.  It’s closely followed by the vanilla flower and opium. As it settles down, poppy flower and mimosa peek out.

Dry on skin: The blue lotus attar is has appeared as it dries down and it’s really pretty with the aged patchouli.

Verdict: This is a nicely unique blend of resins and florals – gorgeous, dark and rich.   Good throw and sillage.

Valkyrie – Honey mead from the halls of Valhalla, the smoke of oak and juniper fires from the battlefield and the magnificent golden musk of eternal glory.

In bottle: Honey and musk!

Wet on skin: At first sniff this is warm and rich with the honey mead and musk the most prominent. The juniper fire is just showing up, licking at the edges.

Dry on skin: The juniper is giving it a bit of a refreshing vibe and it’s so very pretty with the sweetness of the honey mead and richness of the golden musk.  I’m not sure of eternal glory smells like, but I suspect it’s like this!

Verdict: I’m literally dead and waiting for a Valkyrie to take me off to somewhere that smells like this because it is indeed glorious! It’s got foodie elements but isn’t foodie at all and it very refreshing.  I love this.  Good silage and throw. Unisex.

Wanyudo – An infernal and damned philtre of ginger root, red patchouli, tonka bean, cinnamon sticks and burnt marshmallow.

In bottle: Dry red patchouli.

Wet on skin: The red patchouli is here and it’s gorgeous!  It quickly partners with the ginger root and cinnamon sticks.  The cinnamon isn’t craft store-ish at all, but is dry and almost wispy.  The patchouli is receding as it dries down.

Dry on skin: This has settled into a gorgeous ginger scent, with the tonka bean lending a nice balance with the burnt marshmallow.  The red patchouli is just softly in the background and it’s a good base for this blend.

Verdict: I really love this.   It’s definitely a cinnamon and ginger heavy blend but it’s creamy and lush, not craft store smelling at all. Great throw and silage.  Unisex.

Washers At The Ford – A Victorian mourning fougere: bog moss, heather, pitcher plant, water poppy and emerald ferns under a slate gray sky that threatens torrential rain.

In bottle: Bright greens.

Wet on skin: The heather is mingled in with the emerald ferns and this really does smell like you are out in a garden, sitting among the greens and wild heather.  You can almost feel the storm on the horizon as you pick up a bit on ozone.

Dry on skin: The bog moss gives this blend the feel of air heavy with moisture during a storm.  The greens and heather smell like they’ve got a fresh, dewy layer of rain.

Verdict: Amazing!  This is very atmospheric and yet still wearable.  A great scent for those that enjoy aquatics, fresh greens and realistic, atmospheric scents yet still want something that’s totally wearable.  Medium silage and throw.

 

Les Fleurs du Mal

Conjure Oils Les Fleurs de Mal Review

I am so happy to be able to bring you a review of the eagerly anticipated Les Fleurs de Mal by Conjure Oils.

Les Fleurs du Mal – The corrupted blood of ancient dragons is infused with patchouli black. The midnight musk petals from les Fleurs du Mal are caramelized cauldron bound with black opium, black fig and dark muscavadao sugar. Defiled deeply by the scent of smoke of crimson red leaves and Scandinavian churches ablaze, filling the crisp autumn air with sweet despair. Nema!

Les Fleurs du Mal
Les Fleurs du Mal

In vial: Red musk and just a hint if something juicy/fruity.

Wet on skin:  It’s dark and heavy with black and resinous sugar. The smokey opium is starting to swirl around.

Dry on skin: Well, the Dragon’s Blood has arrived and it’s a cloud of resinous, creamy goodness.  The sugar mellows a bit and wafts just a touch love lovely sweetness with the fig.

Verdict: Normally I don’t care for dragon’s blood, but this is different. It’s creamy and oh so rich.  This is a dark, resinous blend that would be great for those who like incense, resins and other smoky scents.  I bet this is going to age beautifully!

*Note – I accidentally layered this with Conjure Oils Hell Broth (Black coconut, almond blossom, toasted patchouli, nutmeg, beeswax and bubbling green sugar cane syrup) and it was magical!

Les Fleurs de Mal – The corrupted blood of ancient dragons is infused with patchouli black. The midnight musk petals from les Fleurs du Mal are caramelized cauldron bound with black opium, black fig and dark muscavadao sugar. Defiled deeply by the scent of smoke of crimson red leaves and Scandinavian churches ablaze, filling the crisp autumn air with sweet despair. Nema!

AYAO – Ayao is the Yoruban Orisha of the wind. She is the eye of the storm and sister to the mighty Oya, Ayao wields the power of witchcraft and magical knowledge. Her companion is the snake and her weapon is the crossbow. Find her in the forest where the leaves swirl like a cyclone.

A whirling cyclone of crisp fall leaves fills the air coupled with slithering wisps of wood smoke, tonka bean and black plum.

CAER IBORMEITH – Caer Ibormeith, bride of Angus Mac Og, the Irish Lord of Love is a shape shifter, swan and beautiful woman. She is also a goddess of death, as her name means yew berry, the toxic fruit from the yew tree. Offer her mead on Samhain to celebrate the beauty of love and the agony of death.

The joy and pain of true love and inevitable death: yew berry accord infused black patchouli, swan feather soft vanilla musk, red amber and stout clove.

CHARON – Charon is the infamous ferryman that grants passage to Hades across the river Styx. Cantankerous and cold, he only accepts passengers with proper funeral rites that have the fare of a coin to pay him. If you don’t you’re doomed to find your own perilous way to Hades. Good luck. Offer him coins for payment at the cemetery gates.

An ancient memory of Tunisian opium, precious oudh, aged tobacco and chthonic rhus khus.

HEKATE’S TORCH – She holds the keys to all domains, passing freely between the realms of the dead and the living. She is the beloved Queen of the Witches, waiting at the crossroads with her beloved dog. She is mistress of the poison path cultivating plants that can be used to cure, kill or stir the souls of the witches that venerate her. Invoke her on the dark moon at the crossroads at midnight, walk away and don’t look back.

Often depicted with two torches that allow her safe passage between the worlds, allow Hekate’s Torch to guide you along your path. A light in the darkness: earthen patchouli, apotropaic clove, spiritually uplifting frankincense, Persephone’s pomegranate and illuminated bergamot.

KING OF TERRORS – He’s the man who comes and does the job with no illusions – this is death hit man style! The crowned, weapon wielding skeleton can appear as the Grim Reaper or Holy Death and his haunting images is on many tombstones and churches, reminding the viewer Memento Mori! Call his frightening visage with his symbols of scythe, spear and arrow.

The musty shadows of the cemetery, haunted loam and moss, metal sting and arterial spray.

LA MADAMA – If you think about what Aunt Jemima looks like you’ll have a pretty good idea of La Madama’s appearance. Not a singular spirit, per se, but a vast network of spirits who oftentimes are the spirits of deceased Lucumi priestesses from Cuba and Puerto Rico. Everyone who has their own unique Madama can tell you her name and how she lived her life. This information is gleaned via spiritual masses, quiet reflection and other spiritual work. She is a teacher and mentor spirit who favors diviners, spiritual workers, healers, mediums and the like. A powerful partner for magic, cleansings and protection. Offer her flowers and cigars while staring into her eyes in a candlelit room to get her to speak her secrets to you.

Offerings of warm vanilla infused bourbon, juicy mangoes, star jasmine blossoms, cigar smoke and a pinch of blessed salt.

LES MORTS  – Les Morts is what those in the Voudoun tradition call The Dead. The belief in the Voudon religion is when someone passes away they really don’t die, but go to a spiritual land of their blood and spiritual ancestors called Ginen and are never really far from their living loved ones. Les Morts are spirits to consult with when you have questions about the afterlife, a fear of death or if you would like to have an elevated conversation, as they tend to wax philosophical. Speak to them through scrying with water or mirrors. Gaze in candlelit basins of water to meet with them on the other side.

Still waters, crystal musk, beeswax candles, water lilies, white amber and sweet offerings of coffee and beignets.

LIBITINA – Lady Death, Holy Death. She is the goddess of decay, of death, corpses and funerals. Her Roman temples were where grieving loved ones would report deaths or make funeral arrangements. It is said she appears shrouded in a black winged robe with an obscured face. She will accept offerings of coins and cemetery cleaning and upkeep.

A wistful and somber meditation on eternity: smoked amber, dragon’s blood, aged black patchouli, rose hips, cypress, white myrrh and black storax.

SIMBI – Simbi is the Vodoun snake spirit that originated in the Congo. It is the greatest of all magicians and is the guardian of magicians and occultists. He is also a master healer and diagnostician. Being a freshwater serpent, Simbi loves water, moisture, rain and waterfalls. He is in charge of flow – water, electricity, air currents and therefore manages the energetic exchange involved with moments of sacred possession. Simbi also protects electrical devices such as computers and televisions. Keep an image of a snake on your electronics and offer Simbi some water and rum from time to time to keep him moist and happy to assist.

African green musk and violets, falling water, the spark of ozone and lightning struck sandalwood.

THANATOS & LETHE – Thanatos is lord of the peaceful death who guides the dead over to his sister, the river Lethe. The waters of Lethe have amnesiac properties and help the dead forget their former lives and attachments. There is no greater pair to petition for a peaceful death, to forget past pains and torments or to instill deep peace. Offer Thanatos black candles, poppies, snakes and butterfly images. Petition Lethe during the dark of night, preferably by a stream or a river.

Black opium, poppy flower, kush, vanilla flower, cannabis accord, blue lotus attar, aged patchouli and mimosa.

VALKYRIE – Norse goddesses of varying tasks: magic, life, battle and death. They ferry the dead warriors to Valhalla or Freya’s hall, where they host the fallen. In the beginning they were the daughters of Odin and Herta but over time their numbers grew as it opened up to include the deified priestesses of Odin. Some say they also may be deified shamans with erotic leanings who will fight and protect their human lovers. See them in the swans and crows in the sky with offerings of mead

Honey mead from the halls of Valhalla, the smoke of oak and juniper fires from the battlefield and the magnificent golden musk of eternal glory.

WANYUDO – Manifesting as a disembodied head at the hub of a flaming ox-cart wheel, Wanyudo is a yokai that patrols the line between the living and the dead with violent precision. It is said that a raging fever is produced just by getting a glimpse of Wanyudo. Woe be to the person Wanyudo catches peeking at him as he will roll over them with his wheel ablaze, scorching them to nothing but a crisp shadow on the road! He has also been known to cart gawkers straight to Hell.

An infernal and damned philtre of ginger root, red patchouli, tonka bean, cinnamon sticks and burnt marshmallow.

WASHERS AT THE FORD – Hailing from the British Isles, the Washers at the Ford are the spirits of women in varying degrees of haggardness with ghostly pale skin and disheveled hair. They crouch at the ford of the river where they wail and keen as they furiously launder any number of gristly and bloody items in the murky water: from cloth to armor to severed limbs and heads! In mourning, she continues to cry and shriek as she washes and if she happens to lock eyes with you as you innocently stroll by, it is your impending death that she is mourning! The Washers are not bringers of death as one might assume, but ancient harbingers. It is said when people of great status are to die the Washer presented will not be the typical washer woman, but a goddess such as Badbh or the Morrigan and make herself available for many to see so the cold shiver of a death omen will travel long and far.

A Victorian mourning fougere: bog moss, heather, pitcher plant, water poppy and emerald ferns under a slate gray sky that threatens torrential rain.

STOD Review Conjure Oils – El Diabolito

While I post a lot of SOTD’s (scent of the day) on The Rhinestone Housewife FB page, I haven’t posted them a lot here so  I thought I’d give it a shot!  Today, I am wearing El Diabolito by Conjure Oils.

El Diabolito by Conjure Oils
El Diabolito by Conjure Oils

El Diabolito: flick the angel off of your shoulder and indulge the devilish side. Smoke, chocolate and warm spices conspire to make debauchery a divine pastime.

In bottle: Bittersweet chocolate powder.

Wet on skin: At first it’s all hot and spicy with just a hint of some earthy chocolate swirling in the background.

Dry on skin: The sweetness really starts to emerge in the dry down with the smokiness as the perfect balance. The spicyness is absolutely perfection here…..rich and deep.

Verdict:  I smell like a sexy mocha. It’s easy for perfume oils to veer into craft store territory with any sort of cinnamon or spice note but El Diabolito manages to avoid that completely.  This is spicy, warm and rich.  Perfect for those who love chocolate but don’t necessarily want to smell like cake.

Some scents are only available in melts and not candles, please view the scent list below you may find some surprises!

Aegis of the Owl: In honor of both the bold and wise Athena a blend that calls to her and her patrons. Athena, also referred to as Athene,is the Greek goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill. She is known most specifically for her strategic skill in warfare and is often portrayed as companion of heroes and is the patron goddess of heroic endeavor. Imbued with all the goddesses favorite things fruits, flowers, and sacred trees Aegis of the Owl is a sylvan unisex blend with notes of grapefruit, citruses, geranium, spruce and cypress on a soft suede bed.

Bombadil: “Come along, tell me now, who’s this jolly fellow? 
Bright blue his jacket is and his boots are yellow,
With lemon cake and blueberry jam-oh,
Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!”

A MOST delicious lemon butter cake that has a great balance of sweet and tart, only to be complimented with an incredibly jammy blueberry jam and the tiniest touch of spice. Unlike a lot of gourmand scents Bombadil is cheery, light, delightful—and dare I say addictive.

Mint Mysticism: The ultimate cooler! A blend of fresh mints, basil and an earthy twist.  It’s creamy, minty herbal fresh, a new religion; Mint Mysticism!

Midnight Margarita: a blend of citrus and the star; puckery West Indian lime. Juicy and fresh skin refreshment.

Practical Magic: A very practical blend for a fresh clean start or to shake some bad juju. Herbal lavender, clary sage and a few extra secret herbs from near the garden gate accompany this bright fresh blend.

Renaissance Faire: The Renaissance Faire scent is an amalgamation of my favorite scent memories of the faire. Heady- but bright jasmine and roses from the herbalists hut behind the big cauldron, softly smoky sweet incense swirling everywhere, and that super refreshing black mint tea, that no matter how you try you just can’t seem to make the same way at home. Everything good about the faire without being the typical food scent.

Verbena: Sally is really putting that herbal magic to work here. This soap is bright and fresh as her small shop! Sweet citruses blended with white sage, lemon verbena, and sunny garden herbs. Loved by both men and women for it’s tart, zippy cheer!

Imbued with all the goddesses favorite things fruits, flowers, and sacred trees Aegis of the Owl is a sylvan unisex blend with notes of grapefruit, citruses, geranium, spruce and cypress on a soft suede bed. Use this scent to help inspire a little wisdom and heroism of your own.

Bombadil: “Come along, tell me now, who’s this jolly fellow?
Bright blue his jacket is and his boots are yellow,
With lemon cake and blueberry jam-oh,
Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!”

A MOST delicious lemon butter cake that has a great balance of sweet and tart, only to be complimented with an incredibly jammy blueberry jam and the tiniest touch of spice. Unlike a lot of gourmand scents Bombadil is cheery, light, delightful—and dare I say addictive.

Dark and Stormy: Take yourself to the heart of a summer storm with the fresh scents of ozone, rain, heather and hyacinth grounded in deep moss and earth.

Renaissance Faire: The Renaissance Faire scent is an amalgamation of my favorite scent memories of the faire. Heady- but bright jasmine and roses from the herbalists hut behind the big cauldron, softly smoky sweet incense swirling everywhere, and that super refreshing black mint tea, that no matter how you try you just can’t seem to make the same way at home. Everything good about the faire without being the typical food scent.

Arcana Stars + Flowers

Arcana Stars + Flowers Reviews

Hotties!  Here they are, reviews of the Stars + Flowers collection.

Arcana Stars + Flowers
Arcana Stars + Flowers

Adhara: The maidens. Vanilla cream, tangerine, clementine, Nagami peel, black coconut, and a touch of sweet violet.

In bottle: Bright citrus!

Wet on skin: The vanilla cream blended with the tangerine and clementine are so pretty together.  The sweet violet is soft and cheeky in the background.

Dry on skin: The vanilla is definitely foody and creamy and with the citrus notes it’s quite creamsickle-y but the dark coconut and violet are the perfect balance to the bright gourmands.

Verdict: Bright, effervescent and bubbly.  If you love citrus and vanilla, you’ll love this!

Bellatrix: The lady warrior. Sweet, jammy fir absolute with 3 honeys, honeysuckle, tiny strawberries, and blood orange.

In bottle: Fresh honeysuckle.

Wet on skin: Fresh pine needles and honeysuckle…it’s kind of a genius combination.

Dry on skin:  The honeysuckle really warms up and as the fir mellows.  The strawberries are fresh and very precious with a generous drizzle of honey.

Verdict:  The honey is pretty soft in this blend and it’s all honeysuckle on me.
Betelgeuse: Orion’s hand. Atlas cedarwood and blood cedar with smoldering oudh, osmanthus, brown musk, bacon, and vetiver.

In bottle: Smoke and all smoke!

Wet on skin: This a a serious oil.  Heavy, smokey and musky.

Dry on skin: I can’t really distinguish the notes in this, but it’s all incense, smoke, wood and musk with a healthy dose of vetiver.

Verdict: Don’t worry, you won’t smell like bacon!  But if you’re into the heavy, smokey and incense blends then you most certainly need this.

Electra: The lost Pleiad. Pink carnation petal ice cream, Mexican bakery vanilla, eggnog, sweet cinnamon, and nutmeg.

In bottle: Frothy pink.

Wet on skin: Mmm, carnation and eggnog are swirled together, tasty and creamy   Plop a scoop of cinnamon ice cream on top and it’s spicy, sweet and lush.

Dry on skin: The spiciness of the carnation really ramps up and it’s a great balance with the sweet notes.

Verdict: This is so pretty.  Carnation is one of my favorite flowers and if you’re a carnation lover then you should pick this up.

Miaplacidus: Gentle waters. Sea air, spring water, cucumber, juniper, hyacinth, lavender, China musk, and 1 drop of hyssop.

In bottle: Fresh aquatic.

Wet on skin: The juniper is right up front, with a splash of very soft cucumber water.  The hyacinth and hyssop petals are gently swirling around with a fresh spritz of spring air.

Dry on skin: Bright hyacinth and salty sea are lovely with light cucumber and exotic musk.   Lavender and juniper are perfect to balance this out.

Verdict: A fresh, aquatic blend with an sophisticated twist of heady florals.

Mira: The amazing. Tiare blossoms dipped in milk chocolate with coconut, sugared rum, French cocoa absolute, marshmallows, and white chocolate.

In bottle: Sugary chocolate accord – dark in color.

Wet on skin: Rich milk chocolate and coconut drizzled in rum marshmallows.

Dry on skin: The white chocolate and marshmallows are rich and luscious.  The tiare blooms and scent swirls around with the sugared rum and cocoas.

Verdict: A rich gourmand dream with an unexpected white floral that is perfection.

Sirius: The brilliant. Bright white grapefruit, golden amber, linden flowers, tart red currant, cassis, and pomegranate.

In bottle: Bright citrus.

Wet on skin: Oh man, this is ALL bright citrus – right up in your face, bracing and proud.

Dry on skin:  The citrus and cassis are stuck in a swirly embrace of juicy, bright cloudiness, with a flash of linden flower and a healthy dose of pomegranate.

Verdict: A lively and energetic blend, this would be perfect for those hot summer days.

Arcana The Prynne Collection Part 2 Reviews

Now that all The Rhinestone Housewife anniversary sales orders are packed up and ready to be dropped off at the post office, I thought I take a couple of moments to review the second part of the Arcana Prynne Collection!  These are available while supplies last!

Cocquette – A flirty blend of honeyed strawberries, pink cotton candy, Tahitian vanilla, French cognac absolute, and balsam of Peru.

In bottle:  Sweet pink candy!

Wet on skin:  It’s a bloom of pink strawberry right at first followed closely by the tropical vanilla.

Dry on skin:  The strawberry is soft and the sweet cotton candy is definitely giving this a pink vibe.   The cognac and balsam of Peru and just quietly hovering around the edges, lightly grounding the cloud of pink fluffiness.  It’s a delightful fluffy pink cloud!

Verdict:  If you like ‘pink’ or ‘sugar’ scents or anything with a sweet candy vibe, this will be right up your alley.  Personally, I’ve love to see what this is like layered with something like black coconut or patchouli.

Fancy Boy – So indulged! A slice of warm bread smothered in golden honey, white chocolate, almond bits, and rich vanilla.

In Bottle: Chocolate and vanilla.

Wet on Skin:  At  first it’s all white chocolate and almond, with a slight whiff of honey.

Dry on Skin:  The warm bread note has appeared and it’s added a really beautiful ‘warm’ feeling.  The vanilla is deep but rich and soft, while the chocolate and almond has settled down.  The honey ties the whole blend together.  At the very end the chocolate and honey ramp up and it’s delightful.

Verdict:  A chocolate blend that manages to be not too foody or cloying.   It’s really nice!

Fancy Boy

Floozy – Silky opium smoked with boozy amber, dark vanilla, and sandalwood.

In bottle:  Smokey and resinous

Wet on skin:  This blend is all silky smoked opium right from the get go!  The boozy amber and vanilla saunter in and tangle with the opium.

Dry on skin:  As it’s dried down, the sandalwood has made an appearance and it’s particularly lovely with the dark vanilla. These two notes really help to richen up the smoked opium and amber.

Verdict: If you like smokey blends or resins of any kind you might enjoy this.  The dark vanilla adds a warmth and depth that isn’t foody in any way.

WP_20160221_18_19_39_Rich
Floozy

 

Tramp – Red roses, worn leather, blood cedar, oudh, and 3 trampy musks.

In bottle:  Soft rose and light leather.

Wet on skin:   A very soft leather with a soft wood, which I expect is the blood cedar. The leather really does smell worn and not sharp at all.

Dry on skin:  The rose has amped a bit and it’s like completely couched in the swirling oudh and the musks.  The musks aren’t pungent but warm with a lot of depth and they are perfect with the earthy wood.

Verdict:  Surprise!  I liked this more than I thought I would.   If you’re into rose and leather than this might be a good choice for you.  Normally I amp leather notes to the point of it overpowering everything else but this blend doesn’t do that for me.
