Princess Minnie Perfume Oil Presented By Arcana

Hello hotties!   As summer winds down and fall starts creeping around the edges of the morning and evenings, we hope you all had an amazing summer.

images

We’ve had a bit of a shake up here at the Rhinestone Ranch House….our lovely little girl Minnie was diagnosed with canine lymphoma.   UGH, it was such shitty news to get especially considering the fact that she’s feeling just fine!  I happened to feel a lump and had the vet aspirate it to see what it was and BOOM…..lymphoma.   After a consultation with a well respected oncologist we decided to start chemotherapy treatments.   Minnie is just shy of her 10th birthday, September 24th!

The lovely Julia at Arcana did such a lovely thing; she whipped up a special perfume oil just to celebrate this little lady’s big birthday!

Princess Minnie:  In honor of Princess Minnie’s upcoming 10th birthday. Pink birthday cake with vanilla frosting, cassis berries, sugar cookies, pink musk, and pearl musk.

_20150908_202256(1)

This perfume oil will be available at The Rhinestone Housewife on Friday.  There will only be 33 bottles available and once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.  These will be featured at $25 for a 5ml bottle.  100% of the purchase price will go directly towards Minnie’s medical treatment.  Thank you so much, Julia and everyone else for your well wishes….it means so much to us.

Should you like to donate directly to her Minnie’s veterinary costs, you can learn more at her Go Fund Me page.

Arcana Lady Justice Collection

Helllllllloooooo hotties!      The Rhinestone Housewife is happy to present a really lovely little mini collection from Arcana, the Lady Justice collection.    Here is the inspiration for this collection in Julia’s words:

“LADY JUSTICE

When I was little, my ever-restless dad bailed out of his career in Political Science to announce he would become a lawyer. It couldn’t last and didn’t: he quit law school in his final year. But what I remember from this period is begging for (and getting!) kittens. Miranda was a soft grey kitten named after Miranda v. Arizona, and Gideon was an orange tabby named after Gideon v. Wainwright. These 2 legal cases relate to the rights of the accused, rights my dad held very dearly. As he said, we’re all a heartbeat away from needing them.

Then, this summer, an Ecuadoran friend was arrested in our tiny, 99% white town over a conversation about marijuana. In the ensuing comedy of errors, the police seized a bottle of pure, triple-distilled peppermint oil and labeled it, “Suspected LSD: Sent to Lab for analysis.” (Peppermint Candyflip HAD to happen!)

The Lady Justice Collection is a benefit for our innocent friend. 100% of the profits are being donated to his cause.”

These are presented in 5ml amber bottles and are available while quantities last!  Photos courtesy of Hpy from Arcana:

De Minimis Non Curat Lex:  The law does not concern itself with trifles.
AKA Circus by the Sea. A cool blend of saltwater, ocean air, rain-soaked
blackberries, neroli, coconut, and a hint of green cognac absolute.

DeMinimis1

Gideon:  Inspired by a spunky orange tabby kitten named after Gideon v.
Wainwright. Apricot, golden amber, and a saucerful of cream.

Gideon2

Miranda:  Inspired by a soft grey kitten named after Miranda v. Arizona.
Pink tuberose petals, Monoi de Tahiti, pearl musk, strawberries, and
sugary watermelon.

Miranda3

Peppermint Candyflip:  A psychedelic blast of cold peppermint dries down
to a trippy candy center of blue frosting, sugar cookies, pink musk,
blueberry candy, bakery vanilla, bergamot syrup, and lemondrops.

Arcana Peaches Crave Reviews

Hello hotties!   Well, here’s the next round of reviews of the new Arcana collection Peaches Crave available at The Rhinestone Housewife.
Peaches Crave Beaches:  Green bamboo, coconut, vanilla musk, citron, lemongrass, bergamot, and dewy peach flesh.

In bottle:  Bamboo and lemongrass.

Wet on skin:  Lemongrass!   With the green bamboo and citron following closely.  The peach flesh is indeed dewy and it’s very pretty with the bergamot which very soft right now.

Dry on skin:  It’s still very green like a freshly picked peach glistening in morning dew with the green leaves still attached.  The vanilla musk has shown up but it’s very subtle as is the coconut.

Verdict:   Have you ever sipped a Bellini on the beach served on a bed of banana leaves surrounded by lush tropical greenery?  Well, this is that scent in a bottle.

P1160676
Peaches Crave Chthon:  Smoked amber, black musk, terrestrial musk, oudh, rich spikenard, and subterranean peach.

In bottle:  Rich syrupy peach.

Wet on skin:  Peachy spikenard is the first thing I notice.  It’s closely followed by the musks and smoky amber.  The oudh and subterranean peach are hovering adding a nice fruity wood vibe.

Dry on skin:  This has dried down nicely and it’s really a lovely woodsy peach. It’s rich and earthy, with a peach wood and slightly smoky vibe.

Verdict:  If you had a peach wood box made and then held rich incense in it, this is what it would smell like when you opened the lid.

P1160677

Peaches Crave Dolci:  Peach gelato and pistachio gelato with 3 golden bakery cakes.

In bottle:  Fruity cake.

Wet on skin:  Pistachio is mouth watering and it’s lovely with a whiff of golden cake.   The cake really richens up and the fruitiness of of the frozen peach dessert.

Dry on skin:  This blend doesn’t morph too much.  It’s sweet frozen desserts drizzled with peaches, pistachios and poured on top of rich golden cake.

Verdict:  If you love rich gourmands then this will be right up your alley!

P1160678

Peaches Crave Forests:  Sweet woodsmoke, juniper, Douglas fir, cedar, wild peachwood, and a few drops of 10 year old patchouli.

In bottle: Mellow fir.

Wet on skin:  It’s all fir all the time right at first.  Like walking onto a Christmas tree lot, it’s making me excited for the holidays!  lol  The woodsmoke makes an appearance and it’s very woodsy and bracing.   Like standing in a forest of fresh pines with someone burning a fire in the distance.

Dry on skin:  This has morphed a whole lot but the bit of patchouli does make an appearance and it’s really nice.

Verdict:  If you like woodsy, piney or less traditionally feminine scents then you’ll love this.  This will be perfection on boys as well.  So sexy.  And I think with a little age on it, it’s going to get better. Ridiculous throw, sillage and lasting power.

P1160679
Peaches Crave Mambo:  Cuban tobacco, dark vanilla, sweet rum, tonka, white musk, and sun-warmed peaches.

In bottle:  Vanilla tobacco.

Wet on skin:  The vanilla is lovely and it’s dirty dancing with the white musk and tonka.   Very soft and sultry sun warmed peaches are holding up the wall, ready to bust a move on the dance floor.

Dry on skin:  This oil is warm, lush and very sultry.  The tobacco and peaches are the stars with the vanilla, rum and tonka swirling around with the white musk.

Verdict:  If sweet but not foodie is your thing then you’ll like this one.  This would be perfect for that humid summer night, sitting on the porch and sipping mojitos.

P1160680

Peaches Crave Paws:  Our Puppy Kisses blend ( A batter of rich cream, soft coconut milk, rice syrup, copaiba balsam, massoia bark and milky pearl musk is gently licked with sweet peppermint, sugared bayberry, and the tiniest smooches of Oregon lavender and Dalmatian sage) with peach skin and peach blossoms.

In bottle:  Peachy musk.

Wet on skin:  Peach blossoms and pearl musk are greeting me at the door with the sweet peppermint and sugared bayberry prancing around.  There’s just a hint of lavender floating around the background.

Dry on skin:  The lavender has come out to play and it’s super pretty with the sage.  The peach skin and balsam and barks are the perfect playmates with the musk and soft creamy coconut.  The peppermint is refreshing and very soft.

Verdict:  Soft, playful and comforting….just like a cuddly puppy.  If you like peaches and puppies (and who doesn’t?) then you’ll love this.

P1160681
Peaches Crave Pirates:  Arcana’s Queen Crossbones (creamy Egyptian musk, wild honey, sweet coconut and exotic resins) with plenty of peach and an extra shot of Egyptian musk.

In bottle:  Wild honey and musk.

Wet on skin:  It’s alllll honey and peach right now, with some resins and Egyptian musk trying to stow away on the peach honey ship of piracy.

Dry on skin:  This doesn’t morph a whole lot as it dries down.   Perhaps is gets a bit muskier and warmer.

Verdict:  If you love that deep rich honey with a bit of skanky (in a good way!) musk and you’re not opposed to peaches then you’ll like this.   It’s Arcana’s lovely Queen Crossbones with a punch of peach and some extra musk to keep it from being precious or cloying.

P1160682

Peaches Crave Trance:  Peach creme with honeyed red musk.

In bottle: Peach gelato.

Wet on skin:  Creamy peach, sugary but not too sweet with just a hint of the hot musk, spicing up the relationship up a bit.

Dry on skin:  The red musk is perfect with the creamy peach….it’s rich and soft with just a hint of nice earthiness.

Verdict:  A rich but not too sweet peach.   If you like fruity that not gourmand, then this is might me your jam!

P1160683
Peaches Crave True Love:  Resinous black amber, caramelized sugar, vanilla bean, peach nectar, and a tiny hint of pear.

In bottle:  Vanilla bean and peach.

Wet on skin:  The black amber is most noticeable but it’s pretty soft and not too pungent.  It’s the peach nectar that I pick up next and it’s really lovely, like fresh peach juice and the pear is just perfection.

Dry on skin:  Ugh the caramelized sugar and vanilla bean are mouthwatering!  And it’s perfect with the peach and pear and the whole thing is grounded by the soft black amber.

Verdict:  I wasn’t very interested in this blend but it’s just gorgeous!   Succulent and warm and rich….just like love, twue love.

P1160684
Peaches Crave Vanilla:  Sugared peach, glorious vanilla, marshmallows, sweet milk, and sheer musk.

In bottle:  Sweet cream.

Wet on skin:  The musk and sugared peach are giving it a bit of a honey vibe.  The sweet milk is very sweet at this point.  The marshmallows  are a cloud of sweet puffiness at this point.

Dry on skin:  The musk and peach are the stars and the sweetness of the vanilla, marshmallows and sweet milk are softly tempered by the sheer musk.

Verdict:  This blend is exactly what it sounds like, sweet vanilla peach goodness topped with a healthy dollop of marshmallow sweet cream.    Delightful.

P1160685

Arcana Strawberries Crave Reviews

Well the Arcana Cravings collection has finally landed at The Rhinestone Housewife and I’m super excited to review them for you.   I’m going to start by saying that I love strawberry anything so a whole line of strawberry perfume oils is right up my alley.   I’ll start with the Strawberries Crave and then work on the Peaches Crave collection.

Strawberries Crave Botanicus:  Fresh strawberry, guava, galbanum, basil, green hemp, bayberry, and ruby grapefruit.

In bottle:  Guava and a bit of hemp!

Wet on skin:  The grapefruit is the first thing I noticed followed closely by the grapefruit and guava. The ‘green’ notes follow closely and kind of waft around in the background.

Dry on skin:  The strawberry is now the star and it’s being supported beautifully by the various greens but those green notes have softened quite a bit.  The citrus and guava really even this blend out.

Verdict:  Do you like greenery? Strawberries?  Citrus scents?  Then you will really like this one.

P1160664

Strawberries Crave Cacao:  Chocolate, French cocoa absolute, creamy strawberry, golden amber, brown musk, vodka, and strawberry roots.

In bottle:  Powdery chocolate.

Wet on skin:  The chocolate is right up front with a bit of golden amber peeking out.

Dry on skin:  The French cocoa absolute adds a nice richness as the creamy strawberry  and brown musk round out the scent.   The vodka and strawberry roots add a nice earthy-ness.

Verdict:  This isn’t an overly saccharine chocolate covered strawberry scent.  It’s a sophisticated grown up blend, perfect if you’re into gourmand with a twist.

P1160665

Strawberries Crave Helios:  Strawberry jam with juicy blackberries, lemonade, limeade, and pure white amber.

In bottle:  Limey sweetness.

Wet on skin:  I’m picking up the limeade and white amber first.  It’s refreshing and the amber is a bright amber.  It’s smells like fresh fruit limeade.

Dry on skin:  As it’s settled down the fruits are more prominent and they are bight  and sugary.  It’s a perfect blend with the lime and lemonade.  The amber is perfect here and keeps this from becoming sickly sweet.

Verdict:  This will be THE perfect hot weather scent of the season.  I imagine myself wearing a bright sundress, sitting in the sultry heat and sipping a French 75 while wearing this oil.

P1160666
Strawberries Crave Incense:  Burning frankincense and myrrh, rich red musk, and fraises des bois.

In bottle: Fruity incense!

Wet on skin:  It’s definitely all the frankincense and myrrh right up front.  It softens a bit as it dries down and the red musk makes an appearance.

Dry On Skin:  This is still mostly incense and rich and earthy.  The red musk and fraises des bois (fancy strawberries!) are perfect to lighten this up.

Verdict:  If you’re into incense blends then this is for you.  It’s not gross gas station fruity incense smelling though….it’s more like an expensive custom blend incense.

P1160667
Strawberries Crave Kink:  Worn leather, black coconut, black musk, skin musk, and wild strawberry.

In bottle:  Soft musk and leather.

Wet on skin:  All leather, all the time right away.  The skin musk shows up after a bit as does the wild strawberry and we’ve still got the black coconut that just lightly in the background.

Dry on skin:  The leather is still the star and the musks and coconut are prefect to pair with it.   The strawberry note is soft and fresh in this blend and not too noticeable.

Verdict:  If leather is your thing then you’ll most likely love this.  The musk and coconut keep it from being too stringent and the strawberry  perfectly balances it.

P1160668

Strawberries Crave Lucy:  Our own Surfers on Acid blend (Sweet coconut milk, pineapple, and absinthe) with pink strawberry.

In bottle:  A pineapple pop.

Wet on skin:  Super creamy pineapple which I think is the coconut milk and pineapple together.  There is a bit of bite from the absinthe and strawberry.

Dry on skin:  This hasn’t morphed a whole lot other than the strawberry becoming more prominent and bright.

Verdict:  I LOVE this but I’m a sucker for pineapple.  It’s sweet and bright and pretty while being sexy and succulent.

P1160669
Strawberries Crave Nyx:  Drunken honey, lavender-laced mallow, soft amber, night musk, and hints of strawberry and nectarine.

In bottle: Sweet lavender candy.

Wet on skin:  I’m actually picking up the drunken honey and nectarine with a dash of lavender mallow.

Dry on skin:  Now it’s all soft lavender marshmallow with the strawberry and nectarine.   The musk and amber are working well here to keep it from being to precious.   They lend a soft depth.

Verdict:  This is pretty and sweet without being to young or cute.  It’s hard to quantify this one but it’s very pretty and might be a good sleep time scent for some people.

P1160670

Strawberries Crave Rhinestones (exclusive to The Rhinestone Housewife): Sparkle strawberry with pink frosting, white musk, black raspberry, black cherry, pink pepper, and a drop of champagne.

In bottle:  Pink champagne filled strawberries.

Wet on skin:  The pink pepper is delightful!  It’s really nice with the black cherry and effervescent champagne.  The pink frosting is making a grand entrance now.

Dry on skin:  The white musk has swooped in and softened a bit of the sweetness.  It’s perfect with all the pinks and berries;

Verdict:  The blend is sweet, bright, effervescent and bubbly.  I love it.

P1160671

Strawberries Crave Rococo:  Tiny strawberries with Madagascar vanilla, Tahitian vanilla, apricot, white musk, and skin musk.

In bottle:  Vanilla and sugar musk.

Wet on skin:  The musks are the first thing I can pick out….soft and pearly. The Tahitian vanilla and apricot and slowly emerging.

Dry on skin:  The musks are still the stars and the strawberry is a great supporting character. The vanillas are delightful and so tasty with the apricot.

Verdict:  It no wonder this is a big seller of the collection.  It’s got everything; sophistication, vanilla and couture musks.

P1160672

Strawberries Crave Summer:  Tropical blossoms of tiare, tuberose petals, star jasmine, and neroli over melty pistachio and strawberry sherbets.

In bottle:  Floral sherbet.

Wet on skin:  OMG, it smells like sugared tuberose, it’s amazing!  There is definitely some jasmine happening here and it’s all swirly with the strawberry sherbet.

Dry on skin:  Gah, I can’t get enough…it’s intoxicating.  The florals are the stars for sure but they are so darn succulent with the sugary notes of the pistachio ice cream and strawberry sherbet.

Verdict: Ok, here’s the deal….I don’t like florals.   Especially white florals.    I have fallen for this blend.  It’s just so sexy and lush and absolutely tropical.   Amazing.  This should be your signature summer scent.

P1160673

Strawberries Crave Waterfalls:  Rain, woodland strawberries, fresh water, petitgrain, osmanthus, clover, and smooth amber.

In bottle:  Fresh and springy.

Wet on skin:  It’s warm and fresh right at first, then it brightens up with the rain and fresh water.

Dry on skin:  Very aquatic with some lovely florals and greens floating around with just a touch of the velvety osmanthus and wild strawberries.

Verdict:  If you like fresh and aquatics, then you’ll love this!  The aquatics and floras are so well blended.  Refreshing, clean and luminescent.

P1160674

Arcana Cocktails For Charity Collection Reviews

P1160508
Beautiful birthday flowers from Mr. McNaughty!



Hello hotties!   Well the Arcana New Year’s Eve: Cocktails for Charity & Travelers have arrived at The Rhinestone Housewife and are selling fast so if you want something, pick it up now.  This collection is near and dear to Julia and the proceeds are going to a great cause, a family that is currently living in their car.   I’m not sure about all of you, but I’ve had some pretty lean times, especially when I was younger.   At one point I was also sleeping in my car but luckily for me I had some really wonderful resources to pull from and I wasn’t in that situation for very long.  I fully support Julia in this philanthropic endeavor and it makes me enjoy working with her even more.  It’s crazy to think that just one abrupt change in circumstances can mean the difference between having a home or being homeless.    I’d love to really blow the doors off this collection and sell a ton of it in a great show of support form our lovely indie community.

I have included reviews since I just couldn’t wait!

Bee’s Knees:  Peach nectar, eggnog, whipped cream, and sweet rum.

In bottle-Peaches and cream.

Wet on skin-There’s a lovely creamy peach that is the first thing I notice, like peach flavored whipped cream.  The peach really ripens up and is supported by the eggnog and rum.   The rum really blossoms and it’s sweet and succulent, not sharp or harshly spicy.

Dry on skin-Yum spicy, warm, creamy and boozy peach.   This scent is snuggly and cuddly and just all around warm and fuzzy feeling….just like a real peach!

Verdict-If you like peach, pick this up!  You’ll be so sad if you miss out.  I can’t stop huffing myself.

P1160511

Cat’s Whiskers:  Only for true sybarites. Rich eggnog, dark rum, a suggestion of waffles, a hint of smoky bacon, and 1 tiny drop of sparkling mint.

In bottle-Minty!

Wet on skin-The dark rum is knocking on the front door, wanting to come in.   Trailing behind the rum is the eggnog and just a hint of mint wafting around the edges.   As it starts to dry down the waffles show up and yes…..yes, there’s just a tiny whiff of bacon.

Dry on skin-This has dried down to a lovely, rich rum filled eggnog. Somehow the smoky bacon, waffles and mint give it a deeply spicy vibe that I’m really digging.

Verdict-Ok, I know this sounds like a totally kooky scent.   Bacon, waffles and mint?  What the what?   Well, it works.  It’s deep, rich, warm, festive and comfy all at the same time.  I love this.

P1160512
Dollface:  Pink champagne with guava, pomegranate, Mexican bakery vanilla, and a splash of juniper.

In bottle-Guava sparkling wine.

Wet on skin-The juniper and guava are the first notes I notice.  The juniper quickly settles down and the champagne takes over.  There is a very light and sweet vanilla note that pops up, it’s almost ‘sparkly* if that makes sense.

Dry on skin-The champagne stays the star (which only seems legit, right?) and is supported perfectly by buoyant  guava and pomegranate.  The juniper is still slinking around in the background and it’s perfect for the effervescent champagne.

Verdict-Are you looking for a bright, bubbly and festive scent for New Years eve?  Well, this is it!  It’s the bubbly party girl of the collection.

P1160501
Giggle Water:  Champagne infused with tropical white blossoms, citron, mango, sweet skin musk, and green galbanum.

In bottle-Citrus musk.

Wet on skin-Green galbanum all the way, bright and right up in your face.   The citron and white florals and pretty prominent and give this scent a very fresh feeling.

Dry on skin-As it dries down the musk makes it’s appearance.  It’s very soft and close, with the galbanum and bubbly blossoms still in the forefront.

Verdict-If you enjoy green herbal, white florals and bright cheerful scents then this is for you.   Ladylike, classy and still fun.P1160502

Sitting Pretty:  Sugared rum poured slowly over warm, sensual vanilla musk.

In bottle-Smells like a boozy sugar cookie.

Wet on skin-It’s definitely sweet, the rum and vanilla musk are perfect together.  The rum is not sharp or boozy here, it’s quite soft and redolent.

Dry on skin-This stays pretty true to form, it’s like if you made a rum and vanilla flavored sugar cookie and you’re sniffing the dough.

Verdict-The vanilla musk adds a beautiful touch and keeps this from being too straight up gourmand or foodie.   It’s a lovely warm and sensual perfume.   Two thumbs up form me.

P1160505

Travelers:  A deep, dark blend of labdanum resin, worn leather, Mysore sandalwood, smoked resins of frankincense and myrrh, red dragonsblood, kush, and a hint of zazz.

In bottle-It’s like every single head shop I’ve ever walked into!

Wet on skin-Whoa, nelly!  It’s all leather, resins and kush.   As it settles the leather deepens and richens up a bit and the resins mellow a bit.   The sandalwood has finally made it to the party and really tones things down.

Dry on skin-The sandalwood has sort of slid into the front and it’s really beautiful.   All the other notes blend together to being you the penultimate hippy scent.

Verdict-It’s the super mega ultra lightning hippie scent.   If that’s your thing,  you need this and I have a feeling it will age beautifully.

Arcana The Beast Collection Reviews

Hotties!  I’m still catching up on the Arcana collection reviews and I’ve got another one for you.  This is an unbelievably sexy collection with just a few bottles left here and there at The Rhinestone Housewife.

The Beast Collection-Lascivious scents for libertines.

 Afterglow:  It exists between ecstasy and quietude. The soft euphoria of white amber, vanilla bean, vanilla milk, Malbec grapes, Arcana’s own Lust blend, cognac absolute, and a drop of cool peppermint.

In bottle-Grapes!

Wet on skin-The grapes are at the front door, knocking.  There’s just the briefest whiff of peppermint before the white amber shows up.

Dry on skin-The grapes stay the star of this blend.    The peppermint is perfect for keeping this from being grape candy.   The cognac absolute shows up as this dries down and adds a great component to the vanilla and amber, both of which are very soft.

Verdict-If you like grape scents then I would definitely recommend picking this up.   It’s a grown up grape, lush and ripe for the picking and ready for whatever shenanigans you might be up to.

Coitus Captivus:  An ensnarement of smoky, boozy sugarcane syrup with tiny hints of peach, red apple, pumpkin, and a warm grip of treacle.

In bottle-Smoky sugarcane….interesting!

Wet on skin-Super smoky right off the bat!  Kind of the way the cane fields smell when they burn them.   Takes me back to Hawaii!  Right now it’s all boozy, smoked sugar richness.

Dry on skin-The fruits do eventually make an appearance but they are definitely just hints.  This is a warm swirling cloud of thick rich sugared smoke and treacle.

Verdict-If smoky foodie scent are your thing, they grab this while you can!

Limerence: Blind hope buoyed by fixation and obsession. White tea, cotton candy, marshmallow, kush, blush musk, hibiscus blossoms, and a slash of dragonsblood.

In bottle-Candy tea.

Wet on skin-This is a tough one, I’m pretty sure I’m picking up the dragonsbood first, but it’s not super strong.  The tea floating around but it’s a soft hibiscus tea.  The dragonsblood really starts to amp up here and there’s just the briefest hint of kush.

Dry on skin-The dragonsblood stays the star in this blend.  The white supports it nicely and the cotton candy and marshmallow are super soft, floating around the edges.

Verdict-This is incense-y and herb-y with a bit of candy and tea.   A totally unique oil that I’ve never come across before.

Nymphomania:  Lusty Victorian ladies who foolishly admitted to liking sex wound up with this diagnosis. Eating too much chocolate, reading too many books, and wearing enticing perfumes were all among the causative factors. (Which explains a lot, no?) An indulgent blend of smoked frankincense, golden amber, warmly spiced vodka, thick myrrh, ruby guava, black tea, tobacco leaf, and pink pepper.

In bottle-Guava and pepper!

Wet on skin-A bright cloud of pink pepper surrounded by myrrh and frankincense.   As it settles in the black tea comes pouring out and it’s a great grounding note for all the spices and pepper.

Dry on skin-As this blend dries down it’s warmed up by the golden amber and it’s just lovely.  The ruby guava makes an appearance here as well as the spicy vodka.

Verdict-This is a really gorgeous oil!  The fruits combined with the spices and pepper are very sexy and warm and grown up.

Papillon D’Amour:  The butterflies of love. Warm skin musk and noir musk over apricot, dry ginger, a pinch of cinnamon, a nibble of mint, a bite of mace, and a tiny scratch of blackseed.

In bottle-Dried apples and pepper.

Wet on skin-The dried ginger is an interesting scent and it’s combined with the little bit of mint but it’s fresh like a sprig of mint.  The apricot is hovering just around the edges at this point and there’s just a bit of skin musk.

Dry on skin-Now I’m picking up a bit of what I thought was tea but must be either the mace or blackseed.  The skin musk has developed and is now softly mingling with the apricot.

Verdict-A soft, pretty and very comforting oil.    It’s beautiful, just like a butterfly!

Tumescence:  Dragonsblood resin engorged with smoked labdanum, incense, blood amber, crimson musk, peru balsam, tree sap, and black pepper.

In bottle-Red musk.

Wet on skin-Resins all the way, along with dragonsblood and tree sap.    The incense really starts to amp as this blends dries down.

Dry on skin-As this settles down the balsam and black pepper combine with the blood amber for a deep and rich cloud of fragrance.   The incense is still the star.

Verdict-This would be equally sexy on a boy or girl.  This is the kind of oil you wear when you’re on the prowl.

And a bonus review of once scent from the New Orleans trio:

Simbi D’l’Eau:  A Loa with the unpredictability and immense power of the oceans, he is pleased by offerings of water and green ribbons. A fresh, aquatic mix of tart raspberry, rainwater, green musk, clematis, osmanthus, tiare blossoms, and ambergris.

In bottle-Salt water and flower blossoms.

Wet on skin-This starts out with a creamy floral and aquatic vibe.  Like being on the beach and smelling fresh tropical flowers in the air.  There’s a hint of green musk wafting around, giving it an herbal bend.

Dry on skin-The florals and definitely the star here and they are gently supported by the rainwater and green musk.  I don’t ever really pick up the raspberries.

Verdict-A beautiful, feminine and pretty blend, perfect for a day in the tropics or if you love soft florals.

P1160390

Come to Krampus:  An intoxicating invitation to the underworld. Blackest musk, charred vanilla beans, kush, thick opium, and oudh.

In bottle-Dark and brooding.

Wet on skin-Kush, kush all the way!   The kush is wrapped up in a thick whirl of blackest musk and the charred vanilla beans.

Dry on skin-The vanilla beans are the first thing I notice, and they are accompanied nicely by the opium and oudh.   The musk and kush have really settled down and add a nice balance.

Verdict-This is a serious dark and brooding blend.   If you like dark and intoxicating then this is for you.    This would also smell divine on a boy.  I’m betting this will get even better with age.

 
Krampusnacht Old leather, infernal smoke, vintage patchouli, cubeb, ho wood, a drop of fir oil, and a touch of brisk Alpine night air.

In bottle-Fir and crisp night air.

Wet on skin-Crisp fir and ho wood are the stars right at first.   The old leather and smoke make an appearance and add to the woodsy feel of this blend.

Dry on skin-The notes in this blend have lent a bit of an incensey feel to this oil.  Like really nice fir incense kept in a nice wooden box and when lit, magic!

Verdict-A rich and brooding evergreen blend that’s perfect for a boy or a lady that might like a less frivolous and sweet blend.   A ton of throw and I bet this will last forever and age beautifully.

Krampus Nog Eggnog with vodka, rum, sweet cream, nutmeg, and wicked amber.

In bottle-Spiked eggnog (the song of my people)  😉

Wet on skin-Whoa, booze!   Booze surrounded by sweet cream and nutmeg.

Dry on skin-The nutmeg is commanding attention but it’s swirled in a lovely cloud of the sweet cream and eggnog with a dash of amber.   The booze has taken a backseat and is just enough to make sure this scent isn’t cloying at all.

Verdict-A very warm and rich, snuggly scent.   I grabbed a bottle for me.   *Pro tip* This is wonderful layered with McNaughty Nog!

 

Lebkuchen Krampus Gingerbread Krampus? Yes please! Blood red musk flows through intense gingerbread, chai spices, cardamom, white pepper, incense, and sweet clove.

In bottle-Foody spicy clove.

Wet on skin-The cardamom is right up front and quite creamy, followed by the chai spices and white pepper.  The gingerbread get more prominent as the blend dries down.

Dry on skin-As it has dried down the blood red musk is in the spotlight and it really grounds this blend and keeps it from being too foody or sweet.    The sweet clove and incense have blended nicely with the gingerbread to support the red musk.

Verdict-A must have for me….I snagged a bottle for myself.  If you like spice then you need this.

 

Ribbons & Teddy Bears What remains after Krampus takes the children. Remnants of French vanilla and pistachio ice creams, apricot jam, sugared peach, melty chocolate, sticky candy canes, orange peels, and sweet coconut.

In bottle-Peach candy!

Wet on skin-A nice splash if citrusy peach with a drizzle of the pistachio ice cream.  Just a bit of French vanilla and apricot jam is peeking out at this point.

Dry on skin-Now I’m getting the sticky candy canes and coconut and it’s absolutely brilliant with the various sugared fruits.   A gorgeous cloud of sweet, bright and delicious notes.

Verdict-Love.  I stole a bottle of this for myself.  This blend isn’t what I was expecting, not cloying sweet or little girlish.  It’s a bright and cheerful oil that’s perfect if you like candy, fruity or feminine scents.

 

Schnaps mit Krampus:  If Krampus comes to your house, you’d best pass him the bottle. A boozy, rummy blend of apple, tangerine, and pear schnaps over woodsmoke, labdanum, and a hint of Arcana’s Growl blend.

In bottle-Apple!

Wet on skin-Tangerine and apples are dancing around the pear schnaps in a delightfully boozy way.

Dry on skin-As it’s died down the labdanum cuts through the fruits and booze.   There is just the merest whiff of woodsmoke and it’s a perfect compliment to the bright fruits.

Verdict-I love the brightness of this blend.  It’s not heavy or boozy but comforting and quite pretty.

 

Gersemi:  Beautiful Gersemi is the daughter of Freyja and the Norse goddess of precious objects. Perfect vanilla, frozen honey, white chocolate, oudh, skin musk, and one drop of patchouli.

In bottle-Chocolate!

Wet on skin-The chocolate and skin musk are shimmery and pretty with the frozen honey oudh sparkling in the background.   The vanilla is just the merest hint.

Dry on skin-As it dries down the skin musk amps a bit as does the oudh.   The white chocolate starts to peek out and adds a really nice sweetness to this blend.  I don’t get any of the patchouli but that might change as it ages.

Verdict-Gorgeous, hoard worthy and hypnotic.   I think it will age very nicely.   Good throw.

 

Hnossa:  Lovely Hnossa is Gersemi’s sister and the Norse goddess of desire. Sugar cookies with frosted tuberose petals, white tiare, gardenia, star jasmine, skin musk, ivory musk, and pink sugar.

In bottle-Pink sugar!

Wet on skin-The pink sugar is the star right here with a supporting cast of delicate white florals, the skin and ivory musk are keeping the florals soft and wispy.

Dry on skin-The tuberose and gardenia have really blossomed now and they are softened and warmed up with the sugar cookie and musks.  The pink sugar is the perfect compliment and while prominent doesn’t steal the show.

Verdict-This is the surprising one of the bunch for me.  Whilst I love florals and in particular white florals I typically can’t wear them on my skin but this blend seems to be working for me.  If you love florals or ‘pink’ scent, grab this one while you can…..it’s brilliant!

 

McNaughty Nog:  Exclusive to The Rhinestone Housewife! Eggnog, Arcana’s beloved yellow cake note, rum, fresh milk, nutmeg, and a drizzle of toasty caramel.

In bottle-Rum and yellow cake.

Wet on skin-Delicious, delicious yellow cake wrapped up in nutmeg and a creamy caramel.  Briefly wafting in the back ground is fresh milk and eggnog.

Dry on skin-This blend dries down to a beautiful, rich and gourmand scent.  It’s all yellow cake iced with spiked eggnog caramel frosting but dusted with nutmeg for just enough spice to keep it grounded.

Verdict-It’s named after me so of course I love it!  *Pro tip* Layer this with Krampus Nog for the ultimate olfactory experience!

 

Oscura:  For the long, dark nights. Vanilla oleoresin, pure sandalwood, benzoin, balsam of Peru, 10 year aged labdanum absolute, cassia, Omani frankincense, and white cognac oil.

In bottle-Sandalwood and balsam.

Wet on skin-It’s a dark colored oil, full of balsam of Peru and redolent with frankincense.  The white cognac oil and vanilla oleoresin make me want to lick my arm.  It’s a true, gorgeous and not artificial smelling vanilla.

Dry on skin-The woods are the most prominent notes with the rich vanilla adding to the really wonderful blend.   The cassia is just a hint of spice and the labdanum and frankincense are taking a back seat here.

Verdict-This is a thick, rich and lush scent.   I’m sure it’s going to age beautifully and will be equally wonderful on a boy or girl.

 

Winter’s Wolves:  The scent of the Great Forest itself: a silent blanket of snow, fir needle, juniper, black spruce, cold white violets, and a small howl of peppermint.

In bottle-Icy and brisk.

Wet on skin-The cold white violets are nestled underneath firs and spruce, with fresh snow swirling around.

Dry on skin-The violets are the silent star of this blend, beautiful and creamy.  The evergreens are the perfect compliment and add such a lovely base for the snow and just a suggestion of peppermint.

Verdict-Lovely and surprisingly pretty and wearable.   A beautiful icy and refreshing floral without being too precious.

The Krampus Collection

While Santa Claus leaves his comfortable home at the North Pole only once a year, Krampus is a traveler, a vagrant, an unwelcome transient who picks up his mail in Hell.

Come to Krampus:  An intoxicating invitation to the underworld. Blackest musk, charred vanilla beans, kush, thick opium, and oudh.
