Arcana – Puppy Kisses and Moonflower’s Bliss

I received these two samples from my last Arcana order.  I’ve never tried Puppy Kisses, though I’ve seen some rave reviews, and it looks like The Moonflower’s Bliss is new!  YAY!  I love reviewing and testing things before they come out.  Thanks Julia!

Puppy Kisses is up first with notes of 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.  In the vial it’s sweet peppermint – those one’s that melt in your mouth the moment they touch your tongue.  On my skin that peppermint is still prominent, but it is tempered by creamy coconut, a touch of lavender and a sprinkle of sage.  This is fresh, clean, soft, and playful.  Perfect representation of fun loving puppy kisses!

Next we have The Moonflower’s Bliss.  No notes are listed, yet, for this scent but I’m going to go out on a limb and guess there’s moonflower in it!  I love moonflower! Oh wow, this is a heady blend of florals in the vial.  On my skin I get the moonflower, beautifully soft and slightly sweet with just a hint of dew maybe.  There is a greenness around it as though you are smelling the whole plant, sky, and night instead of just the flower.  This is a perfect representation of the flower and plant in all its glory.  You can even get a sense of the night sky!  I can’t wait until this scent is available for purchase!  It’ll be wonderful for those warm summer nights.

After typing this up earlier this morning, Julia released The Moonflower’s Bliss on her ebay page.  The notes for this blend are moon vine, heartleaf milkweed, Calla lily, white tuberose, gardenia, and Madagascar bridal veil with creamy butter CO2 extract, pearl musk, white pepper, and a trace of incense.
