Hello hotties!   Here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest spring is in the air and we are excited to bring you a really amazing contest hosted by Arcana and The Rhinestone Housewife.   There will be five winners and each winner will receive two 5 ml perfume bottles.   This contest will start at 5pm 3/17/15 and will run until 5pm on 3/24/15.    We will start picking winners on 3/20/15 and will draw one winner a day until the end of the contest.  This contest is open to international folks!

We are giving away:

How do you enter, you ask?  There are several ways to enter including following us on Twitter, following Arcana Soaps on Twitter, liking our Facebook fan page or Tweeting a message about the contest.  Now, wordpress apparently hates contests, so we did have to run this contest through Facebook.  I was trying to avoid that for the folks that don’t like to Facebook…….to those of you, sorry!

To enter the contest, hit up our Facebook page and click on the “Contest” tab at the top and all your glorious entry options will be available to you.   If you’d like, leave a comment about what your dream Peaches Crave ….?  perfume oil would be.  This won’t be made into a blend but we’d like to hear what you dream about.   Mine would be Peaches Crave Whiskey because……well, whiskey!

We are happy to announce that this contest will run consecutively with same contest from Pretty Indulgent.  We love our neighbor to the north, Maggie, and you should go check out Pretty Indulgent……they have some amazing products!

Conjure Oils Mlle. Victoria’s Lupertine Burlesque Cabaret Reviews And Contest

I had a chance to try several of Conjure Oils Lupercalia collection, Mlle. Victoria’s Lupertine Burlesque Cabaret and loved each and every one.   Valentine’s Day always seems to bring out collections of LE oils loaded with florals and rose scents, none of which work on me.   Well, not Conjure Oils!  I’ll be sharing the reviews of the oils that I was lucky enough to try as well as giving two bottles of Limited Edition oils to two lucky contest winners.   The contest prizes are a brand new (and no longer available) bottle of The Naughty List as well as a brand new bottle of the LE Leap Year scent, Bissextile Burious?

Contest Rules:

To enter the contest simply leave me a comment about why (or why not) you love Valentine’s Day.    In order to be eligible to win you must leave me your email address.  Failure to do so will get you disqualified and you will NOT have a chance to smell lovely for free.  Winners will be announced here and will also be notified via email.   You will have 48 hours to claim your prize before I choose another lucky winner.  The contest will end 4/4/12 and the winners will be chosen within 24 hours.

The Reviews:

You can find all of these oils available here until March 31st or until supplies are exhausted so don’t dally!

Mlle. Whiard
Wild strawberry, whipped cream, kiwi fruit, raw sugar and a pinch of clove.

In bottle:  Fruity burnt sugar.

Wet on skin:  I can smell the strawberry, cream and a bit of burnt sugar.

Dry on skin:   It’s a gorgeous fruity, sugary strawberry scent.  I can smell just a hint of the clove but none of the kiwi.

Verdict:  So glad I bought a bottle of this!  Normally strawberry scents don’t work at all for me but this is the perfect blend of sugar and fruit.


Mlle C. de Villers: Pink grapefruit, red musk, French vanilla ice cream with a brandy soaked Moreno cherry on top.

In bottle:  Ice cream with brandy.

Wet on skin:   Ummmm…..I can smell the French vanilla ice cream and definitely the Moreno cherry!

Dry on skin:  It smells of candied cherry, red musk and super vanilla ice cream.  The cream note is not cloying or gross at all and the red musk just hovers on the outside.

Verdict:  I bought a bottle of this unsniffed and boy am I glad I did!  It’s amazing and hot and sexy and sure to be a go to for me.


Ravished:  Sweltering Tahitian vanilla heat, a mahogany headboard, silken crimson sheets pulled tight and notes of golden honey ooze over mouth-watering coconut mounds.

In bottle:  Citrus honey!

Wet on skin:  Yum, this is citrusy and sweet, with a bit of peach or apricot?

Dry on skin:  Oh man, this is amazingly lovely.  I can smell the vanilla, coconut and golden honey with just  touch of the wood.

Verdict: Drop.  Dead. Sexy.  Need moar!   If fruit can be sweltering and sexy than this is it.
