PERFUME: Spirit & Shadow
AVAILABILITY: Limited edition scent, still available at Soap box company.
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: Worn leather with 3 vanillas, propolis, marshmallow cream, rata honey, and a faint whiff of warm linen.
BEFORE I SMELL: Vanilla, leather, and marshmallow! You know I love all these notes. I am so excited!
FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Very sweet leather dipped in honey.
WET ON SKIN: The honey is stronger and the hint of propolis makes this more interesting. I wish it was more apparent as I love propolis scented products in general. On my skin this is a leather scent and I can feel it’s presence for hours. The vanillas are sweet and I can smell a milky note too. What is more, if this had a taste it would be a honey dipped cereal.
DRY DOWN: The full dry down of this perfume it’s after hours . Then, it’s all vanilla with a hint of linen.
FINAL THOUGHTS: I really like this. I still have a half decant left and a little goes a long way with this so, I don’t know if I will buy a full bottle soon. An image that came to my mind when I first sniffed this was a leather jacket thrown to a Candy Land! All in all, this lasted almost 10 hours to my skin, that’s fantastic staying power!I have yet to find an Arcana I don’t like!
